Free Music Makes Life Happy!
New Zealand pop star Lorde is getting ready to blow up/has blown up/will continue to blow up all over the place if I have anything to do with it. Recently the target of some serious hateration on Twitter after she knocked Miley Cyrus‘s Wrecking Ball out of the top iTunes spot, Lorde is not about to be stopped! Peep the video above to listen to her new, currently unreleased album in full! So far, I’m loving it!

Miguel, Prince, Solange, Erykah Badu, And Janelle = Dopeness
The other day I was unpacking while listening to Kanye‘s Yeezus, then Frank Ocean‘s Channel Orange, then some Dipset, and I was like, Okay. It’s official. I need some new music in my life. Which is why I’m especially grateful for two things poppin’ off right now. 1.) PITNBr Erica Croce just shared a new Spotify playlist with me, featuring some bangin’ cover songs, and 2.) Janelle Monáe‘s new album is live streaming in full, right now! Free music/The Electric Lady makes life happy! Peep the video above and enjoy. I’m listening to the track she did with Prince right now and yeah– nobody call me.
The Next Best Thing
Earlier today I blogged that I am on my way to the 2013 Coachella Music and Arts Festival today but if YOU cannot be at the fest in person, at least you can watch the whole thing for FREE online as it happens. For the second year in a row, the folks at Coachella are streaming the festival LIVE on You Tube. The embed above is the one provided for the livestream but if it doesn’t work properly, you can click HERE to update the stream if needed. The livestreaming begins at 3:30PM PT (6:30PM ET) today and will run all weekend long. If you can’t be in the desert, sweatin’ with us crazies, then this is the next best thing. Enjoy!
'A Love Surreal'
Y’all. I have never, ever been filled with so much regret. Last week we celebrated Throwback Thursday with 30 Throwback love songs that will never get old, and while I was forced to leave out many artists and songs, I am now totally kicking myself for forgetting about Bilal! OMG! His 2000 track Soul Sista definitely needed to be on that list, and there’s no way I’ll ever truly forgive myself for that omission. But. The good news is that Bilal has new music! His fourth album, A Love Surreal, drops on February 26, but NPR is streaming it for free right now! Go HERE to get your listen on, and click inside for a few Throwback Bilal songs! Yeah, I’m trying to redeem myself over here.
