My Favorite Songs of 2015

Yet again, it has been a while. I guess my move to Chicago and the changes that come along with starting a career have affected my motivation to continue writing about music as often as I used to. Nevertheless, I’ve continued to keep up on what has been released, I do my best to listen […]

Single Song Smackdown – “Let It Go” Vs. “Drunk In Love”

Honestly, it’s probably not fair to compare an arrangement for a Disney movie and a pop/R&B/hip-hop hit from an album that was released with no marketing whatsoever, but as far as what I’ve seen on social media in terms of people still talking about the songs and the various iterations that have been coming out, […]
