My Life's Soundtrack Pt. 2: The Ones That Resonate

To really understand me, you have to understand the role that music has played in my life. Every song below really speaks to the way I feel about life and certain situations, and all of them just really make sense.

Alessia Cara - Here: I am not a party person at all, but that's because my definition of "party" is different from most people. I am not here for the reckless drinking, casual drug use, or hot, sweaty strangers. Sometimes I feel like this is my life's theme song. 

Michael Jackson - They Don't Care About Us: I've been somewhat unstable since Oscar Grant was killed in 2009, and haven't recovered for good reason (see: Tamir Rice, Ezell Ford, Sandra Bland, etc.) Police brutality is nothing new, and it means a lot to me to know that my favorite singer recognized and stood up against the injustices that people of color face.

Masego x Medasin - Girls That Dance: I don't ever want to feel like I'm wasting time, especially my free time. I want to go to the type of party that makes me forget to check my phone...that would be epic. It may never happen unless I throw it myself, but that's another issue in and of itself! 

Beyoncé - Run The World (Girls): Say what you want about Bey, (I'm not super-obsessed, so I don't care) but don't ever say that she doesn't stand up for women. As a woman, I appreciate her efforts and hope that she does even more in the future.

Big Sean - Blessings ft. Drake, Kanye West: He's from Detroit, I'm from Detroit. He feels blessed, I feel blessed. What else is there to say?
