Music has forever been one of my greatest loves and passions. It’s crazy to me how a simple song can either change my mood or help me bring out some deep-rooted feelings that have been lingering for far too long in my subconscious.
I love discovering new tracks and share them with friends — it’s become a fave pastime of mine (honestly, my dream job would be making curated playlists for others). Spotify has been a godsend in helping me come across new music and artists. Mondays are much more bearable with the “Discover Weekly” playlist (a playlist curated to what you’ve been listening to that’s refreshed every week) and “New Music Friday” is a great way for me to see what’s just been released. I also find their recommended playlists and “Radio” to be much better than any other streaming service out there. Seriously, they just get it (and no, this is not sponsored or an ad, I really just love Spotify).
Anyways, I screengrab a ton of my fave “eargasms” and share them on my Instastories, but I’m going to try to start creating and sharing playlists regularly. This time around it’s “chill jams” because that’s what I’m into right now. I put this on in the evening, light some candles and sit down to read a good book or journal. This playlist features some of my fave artists of mine at the moment — Sabrina Claudio (she’s the next big thing, trust), Alina Baraz, SZA, Jhene Aiko, H.E.R., dvsn, Khalid and Daniel Caesar.
Take a listen below and let me know what you think! And if you have any song/artist recommendations, send them my way!
