Music Monday | Ibeyi | Drake/PND

Just as I expected, Ibeyi’s debut self-titled album is amazing. No, it’s not the album you would put on before you hit the club with your friends. It’s that album you put on when you need to have a clear mind and meditate.

There are lots of drums and the singing is beautiful. To be honest, I have no idea what they’re saying – but their voices are enchanting. 

If you’re looking for an album to do some yoga to, this is definitely it.

Doing a complete 180 here…

Drake dropped his “If You’re Reading This Its Too Late” mixtape…album or whatever you wish to call it. 

Sidebar: he broke a record with this album that only The Beatles have made. Damn!

The mixtape was great but the song that intrigued me the most was the Wednesday Interlude ft. PARTNEXTDOOR.

I’m not sure why this track stands out to me. Maybe it is the sound of sorrow in his voice? It almost sounds like he’s pleading with someone. Not to mention the beat is inticing. This song makes me feel his pain. Ya know? 

You know I’m a sucker for an inticing beat over a pleading beautiful voice.


You can purchase Ibeyi’s debut album on iTunes as well as Drakes mixtape (you can also find Drakes mixtape free online but I didn’t know that before I spent $14.99 on it on iTunes but I mean I guess it’s okay because it turned out to be a really great album…I mean mixtape).

As always…Check it out and let me know what you think!

Music Monday | Ibeyi – “River”

I recently came across these ladies on Instagram. I was looking at some natural hair pages and I saw them and thought “WOW! Look at those fros!” I went to their page and realized, they were artist.

After doing some research I found out that they are a French-Cuban duo and are only 19 years old.

I was in awe watching their video River because it was simplistic yet, very artistic. AND, I wondered if they really had to hold their breath the entire time.

Ibeyi released a mixtape back in January and their self-titled debut album released on February 17th.

Since I am late to this party I will check out the mixtape and then purchase the album – assuming it’s as great as this song I heard. Maybe I’ll be able to share my thoughts on the next Music Monday!
