Throwback Thursday | “All Is Full of Love” – Bjork

I’ve been in my feelings lately (I blame Drake) so most of the music I have been indulging in are sappy love songs.

This one in particular is not one that captures many people I know but it is on my top 10 of my all time favorite songs, EVER!

Bjork is an Icelander singer/songwriter who I know nothing about but this song.

I saw this video on MTV a long time ago on a random day at 2am. At first, I was extremely confused and thrown off by the two female, kissing robots who clearly were in love. But after hearing the song again, the video began to make sense.

Not sure where director, Chris Cunningham, was going with this one but here is what I get:

“You’ll be given love, you’ll be taken care of.”

The song is talking about everything being full of love. No matter what you do, where you go, who you talk to, you should do it all with love. Remove all hate from your heart and fill yourself with love and peace. If two lesbian robots can find love and feel loved, so can you. But, don’t you go out trying to rush love. You will be given it when it is your time to receive it.

This video is….different. I challenge you to look beyond the obvious and really listen to the lyrics and understand the concept.

Let me know what you think!

Throwback Thursday | “Girlfriend” – Nicki Minaj

Around this time in my life four years ago I met one of my best friends and we instantly became inseparable. We even went as far as combining our names and NISHTINA was born. This song was our anthem senior year and still remains one of our favorite songs to this day.

“Tell them heaux stoppington, they know they want everything that we be copington!”

Nicki Minaj has been one of my favorite artist for yearssss (if you haven’t noticed) and will always be. This Throwback Thursday is dedicated to a classic old school Nicki song and lifelong friendships.

Girls, grab your BFF and enjoy!
