Adele is coming…

Published

on

Adele took to her social media outlets earlier today to announce that her new single, “Easy On Me“, will be released next week.

As big as Adele is, it be foolish to say nobody cares, but one thing that always has baffled me is why do we get over hyped for blue eyed soul? Don’t get me wrong, Adele has made so much great music in the past. Her body of work is solid and stands alone. She has earned her spot. But as black people, why do we give blue eyed soul such a high praise, but in return have a hard time promoting and supporting our own people, the originators of this sound?

Please don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying the music of the blue eyed soul singers like Adele, Sam Smith, and Justin Timberlake. I just hope that the original soul singers can get that kind of love and respect as well.

Adele – 30 (Track By Track Review)

Adele is back! The long awaited album, “30”, will be available on streaming platforms and in stores tomorrow! I’d personally give this album 8/10 stars.

As someone that wasn’t very impressed by 25, I was a little hesitant about getting into 30. However, I must say that I’m thoroughly impressed by this body of work and it was definitely worth the wait. The album starts out with an alternative vibe, gets a little upbeat and ends with the powerhouse ballads. Overall I would say she has really strengthened her vocals and is showing a more honest side of herself. Let’s get into the songs…

Strangers By Nature – a simple melody. Not very attention grabbing but more of a soft introduction to the album

Easy On Me

My Little Love – a song dedicated to her son. Includes voice memos from conversations with her son as well as what seems to be personal messages of her struggles with her crying about being lonely and anxiety.  “I’m holding on, mama’s got a lot to learn”.

Cry Your Heart Out – A guide to getting over someone and moving on. More of an uptempo beat than usually expected by Adele. “Cry your heart out, clean your face, when you’re in doubt, go at your own pace”.

Oh My God – Another mid tempo bop. The intricate vocal stylings in the chorus are perfectly placed. 

Can I Get It – The guitar sets the tone of a country smash. When the beat drops, it’s reminiscent of “Rolling In The Deep”. The song is taking you on a journey that’s describqingly based in Country but has a dash of Alternative and 80s/90s Pop. This song deserves a nasty little Texas style line dance and a jeans commercial placement. 

I Drink Wine – A typical Adele song. It’s a very self aware song. Something that is very representative of the 30 year old crowd who is finally becoming themself and accepting themselves for who they are. 

All Night Parking – If I had to be honest, I would call this SZA-esque. With a little more vocal range. It’s simple but beautiful. It gets very jazzy as she sings “I dream about you, all night long.

Woman Like Me – A song about loving a broken person who is having trouble realizing the good woman in front of them. Tells the story of a woman, ready to walk away from a situation where she is being under valued and disrespected.

Hold On – Strong Piano intro. Vulnerable vocals. I would call this the album’s big ballad moment. A very stripped, acoustic song. You can literally hear the pain in her voice. The song builds into a big finish with a gospel choir on the chorus. Reminiscent of Adele’s fav song of her own, “One And Only”.

To Be Loved – Another big ballad. Nothing but Adele and the piano. This song will definitely be belted by singers, although with Adele’s vocals seem to be a bit strained at some parts, it just seems very heartfelt.

Love Is A Game – Think 60s. An ode to the R&B/Soul of Motown. I could really see this being a song Diana Ross and the Supremes would have topped the charts with. “Love is a game for fools to play. And I aint fooling. What a cruel thing to self inflict that pain

Beyonce dropped a new song from the upcoming movie, “King Richard“. This song is absolutely beautiful. The vocals are beautifully stacked but each layer is strong and powerful! Check it out below.

The big R&B album released today goes to Silk Sonic! After a long wait, and what I would call questionable follow up singles after the smash hit, “Leave The Door Open“, the album is finally here. What I will say is the weak single choices make up a solid ass album! This album has funk and vocals all over it. Definitely needed, although I could’ve used this in the summer at the family barbecue.

Last and certainly not least is Rick Ross‘ new song Outlawz featuring the star of the year, Jazmine Sullivan. Jazmine sound amazing on the song, and it’s rare to hear her featured on rap tracks let alone anything! “Outlawz” also features 21 Savage. Check it out below.
