My Top 10: June

file1

1. “Tell Me” x Sabrina Claudio 

I am so obsessed with this song! I listen to it almost everyday. I discovered Sabrina Claudio on Spotify (via “Confidently Lost”) and she instantly became my new favorite artist! You can tell from her music that she is heavily influenced by Jazz music which I love (Jaz is literally one of my four middle names)!

2. “4 Lit” x B.o.B ft. Ty Dolla $ign & T.I.

Like many songs, I came about this song by my boyfriend playing it. It’s honestly tied with “Tell Me” as my most favorite. The beat is so dope and has a sonic sound. The title speaks for itself.

3. “Unravel” x Sabrina Claudio

This is one of Sabrina Claudio’s newer songs. I really love the energy and melody.

4. “Unforgettable” x PnB Rock

In my opinion PnB Rock is one of the few artists who actually deserved being titled a XXL freshman… but I won’t get into that. It would be a whole other post. This song is hot! He put a nice twist to the song.

5. “Cranes in the Sky” x Solange

I am questioning myself on why I don’t listen to Solange more often. I should probably re-evaluate my life more but this song is amazing. Solange is so brilliant, unique, and creative. She does such a great job of putting her talent in her music and visuals.

6. “Weekend” x SZA

How predictable was this? We all know that SZA just came out with her new album, “Ctrl” (unless you’re living under a rock) and it is fiiiiiirrrrre! I change the lyrics and make my own when I am singing it but SZA did her thing! Her voice is so pure and beautiful. If you haven’t listened to this song (or her album) make sure you do!

7. “Whatever You Need” x Meek Mill x Chris Brown

Me and my friends back home all love this song. It’s a great collab and summer song!

8. “Redbone” x Childish Gambino

This is kinda self-explanatory… I don’t even think I really need to say anything else.

9. “Wild Thoughts” x DJ Khaled ft. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller

Another One! Look guys, DJ Khaled used to get on my last nerve but I respect the man and his hustle. This song just proves that he’s a creative genius from the song sample to the artists he chose. He’s doing his thing.

10. “Set It Off” x Bryson Tiller

I am honestly sad that this is the only song I truly enjoyed off of his new album. I had high expectations being that his last project was amazing as hell. Well thank you for this one Bryson.

What do you guys think of these songs? Tell me what your top 10 of June is. Ciao!

Gucci Vibes.

From brands such as ASOS to Sean John, Gucci has been the muse of the moment. Bold, vibrant, embellished designs are trending rapidly in this season’s fashion. Other elements such as heavy use of dark colors and transparency has also played a large factor this season. Here is a compilation of  fashions both Gucci authentic and inspired from my Pinterest and Tumblr.

Fun fact:

Did you know that Gucci’s trademark double-G embellishment referred to as the “snaffle-bit” is over 60 years old? The majority of Gucci’s first clients were a part of a horse riding aristocrat fraternity.
