Now, you may or may not know who Donald Glover is...
What started out as mixtapes and basically just "goofing up" soon became an actual passion for him. And while releasing bootlegs to the public it wasn't long before he was signed to Glassnote Records.
He currently just released his album Camp which of course is available on ITunes and other music sites. It might be a little bit harder to find in stores. The song I'm going to share with you is actually not on his new album but is the song that I heard and made me think, "This guy has potential and this guy has skill."
Check out Freaks and Geeks by Childish Gambino:
Now the next artist. You know...and you either love her or you hate her. But it's.....Rihanna. Let me explain why I decided to talk about her. First, I used to loathe Rihanna. I thought she was whiny and just another "artist" made by Jay-Z. But...I took the time to listen to her newest album entitled Talk That Talk...
And. well...I've been eating my words. This album is absolutely wonderful....and if I'm honest. Here lately all of Rihanna's stuff has been pretty great. Not only did she record a song with Coldplay..(Called Princess of China) which is great! I highly recommend you YouTube it....but I really feel like she has been trying to expand musically. It seems each album she puts out has a diffierent style. Not only do I respect it when artist do that but I love it. It means, that they are not afraid to take a chance, which means...maybe she isn't just Jay-Z's little protege.
The song I'm going to share with you is called Drunk on Love. Which features a sample of The XX's song Intro (I was already obsessed with that song and The XX anyways). So between her sampling The XX and her doing that song with Coldplay. I have to say...I've really turned to love her new stuff. Being completely honest as well...I've listened to the new album and it is great.
Here is the song Drunk on Love...I hope you guys love it as much as I do!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. And if anyone who isn't American is reading this...well then I hope you just had a great week.
Until next time...
