So.. First off! Heh! Just guess what ya girl’s doing tonight? 😝
So at about 3 AM, through squinted eyes 💀 , as the dim light of laptop searing and burning my precious orbs; the angels 🙌🏾 sang from the heavens in the form of an email, from none other than Sue Breeezzzzzy!! And the show? *drrrrrruuummm rrooolllllll annnddd crash! 🥁
I feel I should explain. 🤗
One thing I’ve really come to love about going to a music college is this…
Once in a while, if you’re favourite artist’s in town, or a show where there were probs tickets left over – and you want to go, but have no means? There is always promise.🙏🏾
The emails usually pop up, quite nonchalantly – with the show’s artwork and some details about it. AND… ☠️ the unsettling feeling ☠️ of the next possible Hunger Games 🔪 . #NoJoke It’s like if you threw a steak at a bunch of starving dogs, deprived of social whims due to the inevitable black hole that is their gut..or wallet… (So basically…me.) I may have.. diverted a little. HE! Aki though! Have you ever responded to an email so fast and then realised, they won’t see it till later? 🤣 That disappointment jo…but;
Here’s a valid list of reasons to go:
- It’s f*ckin’ 👏🏾 SPRING 👏🏾 BREAK! 👏🏾
(I just keep saying this hoping it will give it some meaning #smh🙃)
- Ariana Grande 🙌🏾
- I’m going to be doing something… 🤔
- Ariana Grande LIVE!? 😳
- I get to go with Smithy… 😆 #TurnUp
- Um… f*ckin’ ARIANA GRANDE! 😶 😳 😵 😫 😝 😆 🤣 😂 😄
Okay. I’m good. 😎
Personally, I think she’s great. Like, the girl can SING! I love her vocal techniques, maybe not all but girls got the runs. LOL! I mean she’s got some amazing runs. (those vocal thingies singers do with oooOOOoohhhh aaAAAaAhhhh shiii-) But she’s got a really strong set of pipes, HER RANGE! ugh! So beautiful I can’t. (so jealous.. can you steal someone’s vocal chords? I’d honestly go all Ursula on the girl!! #OneTime) And I’ve seen a bunch of videos of her live and she seems to have a good stage presence, good technique. I love watching other musicians/artists on stage! Because as a musician myself, it’s like a learning experience as well as a performance by an artist I like. Talk about a #WinWin? 🏆
I enjoyed some of the music from her first few albums, songs like “Honeymoon avenue” ,“Right Here” ft. Big Sean from her 1st studio album, “Yours Truly”;, and “Only 1”, and of course who can forget “Bang Bang” ft. Jessi J & Nicki Minaj 💜 from her 2nd, “My Everything” – just to name a few, will always be personal favourites of mine because they just sounded kinda retro and old skool 👾 . Her earlier music was nice and jammable, even though it had a bubble-gum processed feel to it. This can be argued however because that is what was more popular. Don’t tell me you never jammed to “The Way” ft. Mac Miller. #GuiltyPleasure!! Although , I love what she did with 😈 “Dangerous Woman”💃🏾. !!
The single itself (oh that acapella version! #dead 👻 ), and the ALBUM!!🔥 🔥, in my opinion, #litty! So, she’s had some not-so-great hits but she’s also put out some chart-topping chunezz. Yeah Yeah! So she sounded a little Mariah in the beginning… but you know.. we could be #petty and bring up incidences…😂 . Plus, I do feel like her sound has matured and has a different sound and vibe going of late. I dig it.🤘🏾
She’s also come from far…From those nickelodeon days that she honestly looks so #whitewashed, and now she seems more comfortable in her skin! 💃🏾 She’s slaying! 👸🏾 !
She’s a f*ckin’ bombshell AF! 💁🏾 A woman forging a path and creating a career for herself and staying STRONG💪🏾 ,being a total BOSS 💰 , and looking GREAT 👠 doing it – in an industry that can be so cruel, especially to women.
👏🏾 YES! 👏🏾 BOO! 👏🏾 DO 👏🏾 YOU!! 👏🏾
Anyway…super STOKED! I did/am doing a cover of “Side to Side” by Ariana Grande ft. Nicki Minaj, that I will be releasing, although but there is a twist to it! So that’s my plan for the day. Then, just picking up my tix, and doing laundry! #Ugh! 🙄 Be sure to FOLLOW my socials below to catch that and the rest of my day! Let’s just see how it goes…🤷🏾♀️.
Oh but, remember darlings… 😉
