Finally! A post about one of my loves: MUSIC. This is going to be good. I have many 10 favorite songs depending on where I am in life. So the following list is of songs I never get tired of listening to and that apply to me and my nonexistent love life.
Boo hoo to me. At least I have music.
Here’s my list. Hope you enjoy jamming to them as much as I do. I’ve put the videos for your guilty pleasure. You’re welcome.
10 Favorite Songs
Michael Jackson – Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough
No favorite songs list is complete without a song from the King of Pop himself. The video, the man himself, the lyrics. Everything just gels and makes you just want to “OOOOh!” And did I mention the melanin popping god of a man that graces out screen with his to die for smile and killer moves?
2. Chance The Rapper ft. Future – Smoke Break
The way this song moves from here to there. The lyrics, the flow. I’m there, bruh. I just need a smoke break. We all do because life is tough. Sometimes we need a break from it all. Another sexy, slow jam for those cold, evenings, snuggled up in bed.
3. Drake ft. PartyNextDoor – With You
You know I was going to put Drake on this list. I thank him for introducing me to this melanin man. This song makes me dance no matter where I am. Also, it reminds me of how I’d like somebody to sing this to me. Such a jumpy tune with lots of hope for the not so hopeful.
4. Frank Ocean – We All Try
When I feel like, but why should do, Frank reminds me, because we’re all human. Everyone tries. His lyrics are so meaningful and make me cry all the damn time. Listen to them and begin to question things you believe as normal.
5. Justin Bieber – Company
This boy had me at Journals. I didn’t think he could be that good, but that album, he was that good. Then Purpose came out and I was like, “OK, I get it, Bieber. You’re it.” This is my jam for when I meet that special somebody who Imma be dancing with in the streets at night.
6. Jill Scott – A Long Walk
This Queen of Soul proves over and over again why we are blessed with her sweet, melodious voice. Yikes! Her hard-hitting and real lyric make you wake up and reflect on things you took for granted. Then she goes and hits us with Bible verses like whoooo!
7. Mariah Carey – Thirsty
Can we all just take a moment to reflect on the genius that is Mimi? Charmbracelet and ‘Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse‘ are her best creations to date in my opinion. This song applies to me all the damn time. All these guys out here tryna get some. Uh, you thirsty!
8. Justin Timberlake – You Got It On
I had to put this guy on the list. because I liked him for the longest time? When he said “All Lives Matter,” I dropped him faster than a hot potato. He’s dead to me. But this jam is beautiful and sexy. The kind of song you play when you have a man who knows your worth. Sob, sob.
9. Rihanna – Needed Me
No list is complete without this beauty. My line from this song: “Didn’t they tell you that I was a savage?” Proceed with caution if you’re particularly sensitive.
10. Davido – Fall
This list would not be complete without my brother from another mother. This club banger is everything. When I’m feeling sexy, this song is on full blast. Get it, Davido!
