The Switch | Emily King

I was about to diligently think about homework when this came on. You know those montages in the movies that blissfully skim through each season? Or the one in Dirty Dancing when Baby finally gets the hang of the things? When my life story is turned into a film, I want this music backing it!  Even with my effortless grace and lightning hand-eye coordination, it Read more about The Switch | Emily King[…]

Lauren (EP) | KeKe Palmer

A grown and sexy KeKe Palmer has emerged on the music scene with her newest EP entitled Lauren. This EP has a heavy R&B feel with trap elements. It is very different than the KeKe we see on our TV screens and in the movies, however I personally don’t mind it. It took me more Read more about Lauren (EP) | KeKe Palmer[…]
