Redd Review

By : Shanise Lachelle

To be honest when I got into mamamoo last year, whee in was the last to catch my eye. I know she’s part of the vocal line and obviously can sing her ass off, but I feel personally she got overshadowed by my instant love for my queen HWASA. It wasn’t until she recently dropped her solo redd that I became OBSESSED with miss whee in and can now appreciate her talents more, because honey WHEE IN HAS MAJOR VOCALS.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this album, I feel like mamamoo is more r&b but still they’re a kpop girlgroup, so I wasn’t sure what her sound was. I was pleasantly surprised that she’s got more of a soft R&b vibe.

I love this entire album and I know I say this alot, especially about kpop, but this album is giving me picnic- spring time vibes. I just love her voice. I hate to be a “solo” stan, but I’m starting to love mamamoos solo projects more than their group music.( Don’t shoot me) they’re still of course one of my favorite girl groups, it’s just they shine more solo, in my opinion.

Here are my favorites

1. Trash ft pH-1 : when I say bop you say TRASH BY WHEE IN!!!! Such a dirty but fun twerking song. Yes whee in honey, we are all trash.

2. Butterfly ft Gsoul- at this point I feel like every kpop artist has a song called butterfly and they’re all BOPS. This song is so beautiful and their voices go so well together and it gives me total 90s r&b vibes. Whee ins voice is so flipping pretty.

3. Spring time- I just love this song. Simple as that. It’s a great song and she sounds amazing.

After hearing redd , I’m now gonna check out her other solo work. Solo whee in, you’ve got a new fan. Well done. Redd is beautiful!!!

How I pick my Kpop Groups

By:Shanise Lachelle

Kpop has hundreds of Groups. Most of them are really good, alot of them tend to take the backseat to the more mainstream and popular groups, so you would never know about them unless you’re really into kpop.

I was introduced to BTS, and I only intended on fully stanning BTS and being done.

Then I fully got into Blackpink and became a full-time stan and after that I blacked out and ended up having 5 ultimate groups.

1.Blackpink
2.itzy

3.BTS
4.EXO
5.AESPA

So how did I pick these groups to stan!?

I would say they picked me and it was all uphill from there, but I’ll break it down for you in this post.

1. If the music is good, you’ve peeked my interest.

2. If I can watch your interviews and find myself smiling the whole 15 min interview or laughing my ass off, you’ve pretty much got me. Personality is so important to me as you can be GORGEOUS but if you have the personality of a tree, it doesn’t work

3. If the talent is unreal, I’m sold from there on and I’ve become a fan!! Im talking dancing , singing and RAPPING!?!! Which alot of idols tend to do. It’s no wonder kpop is so huge and successful. Not to mention the hardcore training they have to go through to become an idol.

4. And last but not least, and I KNOW HOW SUPERFICIAL THIS SOUNDS, but hey !! Atleast I put it last on my list. If you’re goodlooking, I will stan UNTIL THE WHEELS ROLL OFF. I’m sorry, I know looks don’t matter, but I’ve personally never seen a ugly idol… Not my cup of tea- sure, but NEVER ugly.

I’m sure alot people who know me will roll their eyes and say I only like the popular groups and honestly I don’t care. Exo are some of the best vocalist I’ve ever heard , in a LONG TIME. BTS are super insanely talented in all departments. Blackpink are just little legends in the making. Itzy dance their little asses off like the rent is due every comeback and Aespa is coming for everybody’s wigs with vocals, dances, and VISUALS.

Kpop is honestly one of the best things to happen to me. I’m a artist myself and love music, dancing and films with a deadly passion. I’m also into being over the top and extra. And you get all of that and then some with kpop. They take their craft seriously and are very humble and love their fans with a passion I’ve never seen in western artist’s.

Get into kpop and watch it change your life!!

Positions

By: Shanise Lachelle

I’ll be honest, it took me a while to listen to this ALBUM. I just wasn’t ready for another ariana album and I wasn’t hyped for one. She had just released two albums back to back and the lead single positions seemed so bland as a title track. But I caved and listened to the entire album and miss grande has done it again!! And like I said, I don’t how positions was chosen as the lead single when the entire album is FULL of bops. Anyways I give positions 5/5. She really doesn’t miss when it comes to making a great pop/rb album.

It was hard to pick a top 5, but here she goes.

1. 34+35

2.just like magic
3.off the table

4.six thirty

5 nasty

Honorable mention: safety net
Have you listened to positions yet? And what’s your favorite?

Drivers license review

Drivers license review by : Shanise Lachelle

Within the last week this song has BLOWN UP and it’s all over instagram and tiktok. Misa olivia is indeed having a moment hunny. Now I’ve been following olivia since highschool musical the musical came out last year. So I already knew the girl was a cutie and had MAJOR PIPES. But I was still blown away by her first solo single and video. Listening to driver’s license for the first time makes me feel like I’m back in highschool having my heart broken for the first time. ” Guess you didn’t mean what you wrote in that song about me”, is the gut wrenching line that stands out the most and she sings with so much pain and love, it makes you emotional. The song is doing so well it topped one of her idols ( Taylor Swift), on the charts. Like I said Miss Olivia Rodrigo is indeed having a moment and she is the moment and honestly HAS been the moment since high school musical the musical debuted. I’m going to need you guys to wake up and act like you know. What a debut, congrats on all your success. And whoever she wrote this song about, is looking like a whole sick dummy right now.

It’s time for another Comeback

THE BOYS ARE BACK!! Be Is the official title of Bts new album and life goes on is the title track! Over the last two weeks, we have gotten a sneak peak into the new concepts and artworks. And i am digging vintage BTS. They all look so good and well rested, so I know this covid break did them so good. The official track list was released yesterday and I’m buzzing!!! Are you excited for Bts new comeback!? This is my first comeback and I’m being fed so well, I know I will loose my mind when the album Actually comes out. I will also loose my mind when the video and single comes out. I’m just gonna be loosing my mind all month long.

BTS

Maybe I’ve been living under a rock or maybe I was just ignoring all the glory that is BTS. I think the toxic part of their fandom and the hysteria turned me off to be honest. And I ran as fast as I could from BTS. I didn’t want a repeat of my one direction days. But alas after hearing dynamite (watching the video and becoming CURIOUS), I’ve become a full blown fan within a month. I don’t know how it happened… Or when it happened or WHY it happened. But I’m now a bts stan and LOVING EVERY BIT OF IT. I WAS A BIT overwhelmed at first trying to catch up on 7 years worth of interviews, music videos and albums.( I’m still not caught up). These guys are truly the whole entire package and I’m not even the slightest bit KIDDING. Their dance routines ALONE are super intricate and complex. And every time they perform THEY BASICALLY TURN IT INTO A BTS CONCERT. THEY ARE INSANE. not to mention they have vocals to match their dance skills ANDDDD they have a rap line. Who are absolutely ridiculous in their own right. Them being cute just puts the icing on the cake of their massive talent. And they happen to be extremely humble about all of their success. Which you don’t see often , especially with stars that young‼️ they aren’t flashy and for the most part stay out of the tabloids . I could go on and on about how talented they are,and how HARD THEY WORK, but you truly would have to see it for yourself. I see them often being compared to one direction in terms of fandoms and how famous they are, and as a one direction stan I have to tell you… ONE DIRECTION COULD NEVER. THEY CAN’T SIT WITH BTS, THEY CAN’T BREATHE THE SAME AIR AS BTS AND THEY MIGHT AS WELL BE ON ANOTHER PLANET FROM BTS. BTS are truly the group of this generation and in a league all their own!!!! Stop sleeping on them because their fans are mostly teen girls and you’ll be surprised. They have bops on top of bops. Check them out for yourselves!!!!!

They prove that language has no barrier when it comes to great music!!!!

Don’t EVER settle

I’ve finally reached that point in my life. The point where I realized I’m gonna be single for a while until I can find my equal. Ever since I’d become interested in boys and dating ,I settled. I may have not known it then, but any boy who called me cute or paid me any type of attention , had my heart. I didn’t care that they treated me like shit or they strung me along. As long as I had “someone”. Yes, I had super low self-esteem and was supper shy and had about a billion insecurities. I once wasted 10 years on a guy. Who was never my official boyfriend by the way. And never intended to be . But loved the girlfriend type things he got by being with me. Imagine the type of low worth man you have to be to string someone along for a decade when you know you’ll never commit to them. And Imagine how much I didn’t know my worth that I put up with it. He always made me feel like I wasn’t good enough for him, when truth is I was probably too good for him. I just didn’t know it. I’ve had more than enough of those type of relationships to last me a lifetime. Seriously, I’ve learned my lesson. My point being is I’ve settled for everything in my life

Jobs

Grades

Friends

Boys

I always accepted the bare minimum. Not until recently have I worked my butt off in every aspect of my life and stopped settling for the bare minimum. And guess what!? It’s cost me friends, and guys. But guess what I’ve gained? EVERYTHING I was supposed to become. I can no longer accpet the bare minimum and I don’t want too!! Those people were simply a distraction, keeping me from achieving my goals. So don’t settle! And if people fall off or leave…. Well LET THEM. They’re not meant to be in your life anyway. Does it absolutely suck being alone and single, especially during a pandemic!??? Yes!! , Trust me I know it does. But imagine the blessings that are about to enter your life for not settling. The best is yet to come and comes to those who are patient. We’re gonna make it, we won’t be alone forever.

Rain on me

Lady gaga and Ariana did what they had to do PERIOD!!! “I rather be dry but at least I’m alive”, I’m so happy Gaga has returned to the gaga we all know and fell in love with!! I understand she wanted to try other things and genres but this music is truly her lane!!! I LOVE this song and it’s video. I’m living for the robotic/alien early 2000s looks. It was perfect with gaga but you add Ariana and IM BALD HONEY!!! The looks, the choreography , the vibes , the message! This is the song we all needed but didn’t know we needed. It’s been on repeat since its debut! I can just imagine this song during pride and it makes me so GIDDY but sad that ms. Rona came and ruined our summer. I was surprised to see Ariana keep up with Gaga’s routines and happy gaga didn’t out-dance her and she stayed on the same pace with Ariana. This is an entire summer BOP. 5/5, check it out! I’m LOVING ALL these female features all the girls have been doing and I’m LIVING for this era GAGA!

Watermelon sugar 🍉🍓

Harry heard our cries and FINALLY released watermelon sugar -the video! Not only is the video super colorful and fun, It’s 70s fashion themed and a total vibe!! There’s women all of different sizes and colors !! And this is what we like to call diversity Huns!! Harry genuinely looks happy, relaxed and to be having the time of his life. Watermelon sugar is about -look away prudes- *oral sex* and how you just can’t get enough. So afcourse we have harry and the models eating a lot of fruit and we even have the women having orgasms. The whole video is like a giant fruity hippie orgy and IM HERE FOR IT!!! Mr. styles never disappoints . Check it out and get that summer feeling that we most definitely won’t be getting due to Corvid-19.
