It’s funny how the times can change. I once thought my brother’s taste in music was immature and constantly tried to influence it by asking him to listen to my music (boring to him). As with everything it was only a matter of time before he grew into a more mature taste in music.
Now the tables have turned and he is the one suggesting new music to me and giving me songs to listen to and I absolutely love it.
Sometime last year before he came home he called me over the phone in excitement telling me there was someone I absolutely had to listen to and when he came home later that week, I was already expectant.
I was completely taken, who is this neo-soul, alternative, ethereal carefree black girl goddess and why was I just hearing about her?
Admittedly, the first song and video I watched wasn’t the most accurate representation of her, It’s a little more upbeat than her usual, it reminded me of Solange but they are different. A good way to be introduced to her music anyway.
Don’t you just love her, um for lack of a better word, “vibe”?
Julia is definitely one of SZA’s more upbeat songs, she has 2 EPs and released her album Z in 2014. This album has been my companion on many long drives and got me through the days of my long commute to work.
So faves, ready? (really just get the album)
Babylon- Haunting. moody.
Was it worth it?
Would you do it again?
Aren’t you tired
Always making amends…
And last one “Green Mile”
Her subject of her music can be a bit dark so if you’re not into that you might not like her. I also love her carefree style- did I say this already? – and her beautiful curly locks.
Give her a listen and let me know what you think.
What are you listening to these days?
