Music of August 🎶❤️

Hola lovelies 💕,

I feel like it’s been a long time since I posted a blog. I’ve been feeling depressed, a bit anxious and bad as you could read on my last blog post. I woke up and the whole week I felt this way. It’s not just that I lack a purpose in life. I feel the suffering and the state of the world SO much because I’m a highly sensitive person. It’s okay to feel but sometimes it gets way too overwhelming. I’m happy to feel again lighter and more hopeful. Here’s to better times ahead 🙏✨. I guess especially in these times we have to keep this hope alive because otherwise we wouldn’t be able to cope. It’s too much negative news all the time. It’s okay to take a social media break. Do what feels good to you. I’m back in The Netherlands since a few days. I already miss Spain 😢🇪🇸. Hopefully we will be back soon.

In this blog post I will share you my favourite music of August which includes the AMAZING album Folklore by Taylor Swift 😍🎶, some amazing Spanish songs by Aitana ft. Morat, Lola Indigo and much more.

Taylor Swift – Folklore

OMGGGG MY FAV ARTIST EVER RELEASED A NEW ALBUM JUST AS A SURPRISE!!! 😍😍😍 She announced it and bam there it was. Taylor Swift, the queen of the music industry 👸👑 as known was the artist of the decade. I really love her so much. I love her as a person SO much and also her music is just the best and most beautiful. I loved her last album Lover so much. This album was something totally different and less pop which was really nice. I also missed at times the country Taylor. This is one of my favourite albums of her and I keep listen to it on repeat. I can’t stop it. It’s way too good. She sings about so many stories. She is THE person to write them. I also wanted to make an apart blog post for it later. She wored together with Bon Iver, The National en Jack Antonoff. I love this alternative album SO much 🥰. Its perfect for the end of Summer and beginning of Autumn. It makes me feel nostalgic, sad and it has mistery in it. All my songs are my favourite haha I can’t choose but I will try to choose my favourites which you can listen below.

Taylor Swift – cardigan

”Vintage tee, brand new phone
High heels on cobblestones
When you are young, they assume you know nothing
Sequin smile, black lipstick
Sensual politics
When you are young, they assume you know nothing”

THIS song and the video is so amazing! WOW so beautiful!!! 😍 She directed this all by herself. She choosed the clothes, make up and just everything. I’m so impressed and also not because she literally can do everything. The visuals are out of the world. I love this song. It brings me such a great sense of calm. She also looks so beautiful. The scene in the forest and in the sea are my favourites.

Taylor Swift – the last great american dynasty

And they said “There goes the last great American dynasty”
Who knows, if she never showed up what could’ve been
There goes the maddest woman this town has ever seen
She had a marvelous time ruining everything

This is another amazing song which also has such a great story behind it. It’s about a woman from St. Louis who is named Rebekah West Harkness. She is a famously wild heiress who once owned the Rhode Island coastal mansion that Swift purchased in 2013 for about $17 million. I really like this connection so much. She always have so much stories to tells us in her songs.

Taylor Swift ft. Bon Iver – exile

I think I’ve seen this film before
And I didn’t like the ending
You’re not my homeland anymore
So what am I defendin’ now?
You were my town
Now I’m in exile seein’ you out
I think I’ve seen this film before

This duet is SO beautiful with Bon Iver!!! 😍 This is one of my favourite songs ever. The low voice of Bon Iver blends really well with Taylor in this song. It’s a sad song and makes me feel so much. This song is about a doomed couple rehashing their relationship. It beings very low and when they sing together it explodes which is my favourite part ever. You can feel the emotion in it. This song is just in prefect harmony.

Taylor Swift – betty

But if I just showed up at your party
Would you have me?
Would you want me?
Would you tell me to go fuck myself
Or lead me to the garden?
In the garden would you trust me
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
I’m only seventeen
I don’t know anything but I know I miss you

The songs cardigan/betty and august are a ‘Teenage Love Triangle’. James and Betty are two teens who were dating, but over the summer James started secretly sleeping with another girl. Betty found out about the affair from Inez, and tried to break up with James but it sounds like they got back together in the end. ‘Cardigan’ is from Betty’s point of view, lamenting the loss of young love. ‘August’ is from the perspective of the other woman, who had the secret summer affair with James. And ‘betty’ is all about James trying to get Betty back. Taylor is so good in storytelling. This song sounds so country which I really did miss these years. I really love this song. I also like the harmonica too. It makes it even better.

Aitana ft. Morat – Más de lo que aposté

Aitana is becoming such an amazing artist since she participated in the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo. This song is so catchy! It’s so amazing 😍. Also, Morat is an amazing band from Colombia. This collab is again a hit.

Rvfv ft. Lola Indigo – Trendy

Awesome song again from Lola Indigo! I love the cowboy vibes 😍🤠👢 She dances and sings so well. I love all the dancers so much. The choreography is amazing.

Eva B – América

Eva became third in Operación Triunfo this year. She has so much personality and charisma. I love the videoclip and this single of her fits her so well. I can’t wait for more amazing songs of her.

Jawsh 685 x Jason Derulo – Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)

I always heard this song on the radio in Spain and immediately loved it. It’s so catchy and uplifting! 😍 It really makes me happy to listen to. It’s been a long time since I listened to Jason Derulo.

Miley Cyrus – Midnight sky

“I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you

Miley is back with such a masterpiece! 😍 I really like the whole vibes of this song. I love her low voice. It sounds SO good!! I’m happy she is back with great music.

BLACKPINK ft. Selena Gomez – Ice cream

This is an amazing collaboration with the Kpop group BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez. I love ice cream 😍🍨. Hahah this song makes me want to eat one. I really like this song.

Lola Indigo ft. Danna Paola y Denise Rosental – Santería

Wow this song and video is SO awesome! 😍 Three powerful women together 🔥 This song relates to a religion that was developed in Cuba. The videoclip is amazing. The performance is so good!! This is a perfect song to dance on and also makes you feel empowered as a woman 💃♀️.

Amaia Romero – Cosas interesantes para decir

I’m so happy Amaia is back with some new music. It’s so good! 💖. It’s a great pop song which makes you happy. I’m so happy she always stays authentic and real. Her voice is always so sweet which I love so much.

Amaia Romero – La victoria

These two songs were recorded directly in the studio. I really like this one too. The instruments are also amazing. I can’t wait to see her live one day with her band. She sings about people looking at her but not seeing her. She also sings about how not everyone tells the truth which is so relatable nowadays.

Nea ft. Felix Jaehn – Some say remix

I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH!!!! 😍😍 I heard it so much on the Spanish radio. The chorus can remind you of the song Blue da ba dee by Eiffel 65. It’s really such a relaxing song.

BTS – Dynamite

What a great new song of BTS! I can’t wait to see what they have in store with their new album. I’m sure there will be more amazing song in it like this one. BTS never fails in making amazing music. They are such cuties too. Thank you for making this world a better place to live in.

JoJo ft. Demi Lovato – Lonely hearts

I really miss some more music with Demi Lovato. I really liked this collab with JoJo. I really like when they sing together. It sounds very well. Maybe it’s not totally my style of music I would listen to but I like it.

Thank you all for reading and listening to these amazing list of songs. What are your favourite songs of Folklore? Which song do you like from my list? To which artist do you listen to often? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

Music of January 🎶🌺🌸

Hey lovelies 💕,

I listened to some amazing music in January. I will share all the new music which has been released that month in this post. I hope you will like it. I love the new album of Selena Gomez 😍. There are so many amazing songs in it. Also some other Spanish songs has been released such as from Rosalía and Shakira.

Lizzo – Good as hell

I just listened to this song because in the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo some participants were singing it. I’m always late too listening to some songs haha. I really love this song so much! So much girl power! 💪💜 More songs of this style please.

Jonas Brothers – What a man gotta do

The Jonas Brothers are on fire lately! 😍🔥 They are releasing so many good songs. I love this song and the video is so catchy too. I also really LOVE that their wives are in so many videoclips. It’s so cute. I wish to go to one of their concerts and sing and dance along every song of them.

John Legend – Conversations in the dark

”I won’t ever try to change you, change you
I will always want the same you, same you
Swear on everything I pray to
That I won’t break your heart
I’ll be there when you get lonely, lonely
Keep the secrets that you told me, told me
And your love is all you owe me
And I won’t break your heart

I don’t listen to John Legend that much but sometimes I hear a song I really love like this one. He is such a great artist. This song is so beautiful and touching. I love how he writes about love and how this music just make you feel that love. I feel a bit alone too while listening to this song because of being single. Deep down I crave for that one true love.

India Menzel ft. Evan Rachel Wood – Show yourself (Frozen 2)

”Show yourself
Step into your power
Throw yourself
Into something new
You are the one you’ve been waiting for
All of my life
All of your life
Oh, show yourself”

When I watched Frozen 2 I felt completely in love with this song and everything in this scene 😍✨. I relate to this song so much. I have to show myself more instead of hiding in this world. I hide myself because of being bullied in my teens. I am worth it and have the right to love and show myself. We all have our answers in ourselves. We just have to look into our hearts and find it. This song is just so wonderful. Frozen is amazing.

Kacey Musgraves – All is found (Frozen 2)

I find this song so relaxing and so beautiful too. I love Disney for their beautiful movies such as Frozen and for the beautiful music such as this song. It’s so touching and cute.

Taylor Swift – Only the young

While I was watching the amazing documentary of Taylor Swift called Miss Americana I heard this new song for the first time 💖. I wrote about her documentary in this post. This song is SO GOOD!!! It’s a song with a message. We are the genereation who can save and change this world 🌍💪. We may be young but we can do it! We have the right to speak up about anything we believe in.

Eva – Let’s twist again (Operación Triunfo 2020)

I love this Spanish talent show so I will share some nice covers which they sing in the liveshows. I love how Eva sang Let’s twist again by Chubby Checker. She did it so well and so good. She was wearing clothes from her grandfather haha so awesome! I love her expression and everything. Such a good performance. I wish I would feel so comfortable singing on that stage.

Rosalía – Juro que

AAAHHH Rosalía is back with some beautiful flamenco music! 💃 It’s about a flamenco girl who was physically and verbally abused. She is back to her roots and I love it. I also love when she make songs in the genre of reggeaton but I love these kinds of songs more in her style.

Shakira ft. Anuel AA – Me gusta

I can’t wait for more new music of Shakira. I love her old songs so much such as Waka Waka and La Bicicleta. I also like this song. It’s catchy.

Selena Gomez – Rare

Finally Selena is back with a new album! 💕 I have missed her. She is such a good and genuine artist. She already released the amazing songs Loose you to love me and Look at her now. I love her new music. I will share my top three favourite songs of her new album with you.

Selena Gomez – Rare

I know that I’m special”

Beautiful song! This videoclip is also so beautiful. I love the colours, her being in nature and her dress. She is so special and so beautiful 🌸. We are all special in our own way. I love the message of this song so much. It also sounds so good. It’s really her style.

Selena Gomez – People you know

We used to be close, but people can go
From people you know to people you don’t
And what hurts the most is people can go

Another amazing song of Selena. I really feel this way too. We all loose people in our lives whether that is due to falling apart, grief or anything else 💔. I find it hard sometimes to let people go but sometimes it’s for the best. Her voice is so beautiful. I love the beat in this song too.

Selena Gomez ft. 6LACK – Crowded room

This is such a relaxing song. I can feel those vibes. I love it when she sings those high notes. It all sounds so good.

BTS – Black Swan (Performed by MN Dance Company)

I cried while watching this beautiful, amazing and inspiring music video of the new song Black Swan by BTS 🦢. This is real music. It feels like the guy dancing feels like not fitting in with the others and is doing his own dance. That’s what I feel while watching it. I love the instruments and just everything. The dancers are amazing. So incredible beautiful! This is real art.

G. Soul – Bad habit

While I was listening to Black Swan I saw this song from G.Soul. Nice song. I don’t listen that much to K-pop but I really like this song and the beats of it.

The Original Rudeboys – Hypocrite

I’M SO HAPPY THEY ARE BACK! ☺️👏 I missed them so much. I loved listening to their music. The Original Rudeboys was the support act of The Script some years ago when I went to see them. I love the songs Stars in my eyes, Travelling man and Blue eyes. I love this new song of them. They make such great music together and sing very well. I can’t wait for more music of them this year.

Racoon – Het is al laat toch

Racoon is one of my fav bands of The Netherlands. They are so talented. I loved when I saw them live in Haarlem once. I’m happy they are making music again. I really like this new song. I normally don’t like that much when Dutch artists sing in Dutch but sometimes it’s really good like this time haha. I just am more used to listening songs in English or in Spanish.

Thank you so much for reading this blog post and listening to these amazing songs. Which song is your favourite? What kind of music do you listen to? What was your favourite song from January? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

Music of April 🎶

Hey lovelies 💕 ,

I can’t wait so share you the songs I’ve been listening to in April. April was such a good music month. I have loved the new songs that have been released 💗. I hope you will like them too.

Taylor Swift ft. Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco – ME!

This song is soooo good, such a bop like my lovely Chloe always says. I’m so happy Taylor is back with an amazing new single. I also love that Brendon from Panic! At The Disco joins her. It’s such an uplifting song which makes me happy every time I listen to it. I love the colours, the cute cats and aahhh Taylor is just a ray of sunshine and always light up my world. I can’t wait to see her live one time 😍. I’m excited for her new era after her album Reputation.

Morat & Aitana – Presiento

I love Aitana and already wrote sometimes about her. I know her from the Spanish talentshow Operación Triunfo. I also love the group Morat so much. They are from Colombia and make so many good songs. The clip is really cute and the song makes me happy! 💕 This two singing together is just the best. Morat is very popular in Spain and Latin America.

Ariana Grande & Victoria Monét – MONOPOLY

Ariana only makes good music! What I love so much is when she throws Trump, haters and negativity away in her video. Haha it’s so funny and so good 😂. It’s a really nice song!

LANY & Julia Michaels – “okay”

“I’m gonna be okay, right?
I’m gonna be okay, right?
I wish I could tell myself that at night”

I love every song with Julia Michaels. She does so well with every collobaration. I didn’t know LANY before. It sounds really great! I also find the lyrics very relatable.

Lola Indigo & Lalo Ebratt – Maldición

Lola Indigo also called Mimi and also known from the Spanish talentshow Operación Triunfo was the first one that had to leave in the first live show. Now, she is doing amazing and every song she released is AMAZING! Lola indigo is her artist name now and she formed a group where she sings and dances. You can see that in every clip. I just find it amazing. This song is also so good! I really hope she will be known internationally too because she’s just amazing. I can’t wait for her first album in May. I’m excited! 😍

Lola Indigo – El humo (Original song from the movie I can quit whenever I want)

Originally this song is from the Spanish movie “I can quit whenever I want” but Lola Indigo adapted it. I love it! It reminds me when a jury in the talentshow said to her that she isn’t a dancer but just acts like dancer and everybody in Spain was like whaaat?! She’s a dancer and singer! She also participated in Fama a bailar which is a talentshow of dancing in Spain. I wish I could dance as good as she does 💃

BTS ft. Halsey – Boy with luv

Okay, so this is the first time that I’m listening to a kpop song. I have to say that it was really great. I love it! It’s such a cute clip. They sing good and also dance really good. I also love that the clothes are pink. It really gives me the feeling of happiness. I’m going to listen to more songs and let you know what I think. Hahaha, next blog post I will know everything about kpop and be a diehard fan such as my lovely friend chloe.

JONGHYUN ft. MV – Lonely

This song was release two years ago. Jonghyun killed himself at the age of 27 years and was the member of the kpop group SHInee. I just found this song and I find it very sad but also beautiful. I looked to the English translation and it made me really sad. He was suffering so much and felt lonely. I’m sad no one could save him but I’m sure he is an angel in heaven. Having a mental illness as I experience anxiety is horrible. Every mental illness needs to be treated well.

Luis Fonsi, Sebastián Yatra, Nicky Jam – Date la vuelta

LOVE THIS SONG! 😍 I love these artists and I love latin music so much! It’s good to dance on it and you get really good vibes when you listen to it.

Nerea Rodríguez – Tu segunda opción

Nerea is also from the Spanish talentshow. I love her voice and this new single of her. She sings about how she isn’t a second choice and that that person don’t deserve her forgiveness. I think it’s a great song with a beautiful message.

Sara Bareilles ft. John Legend – A safe place to land

This is a beautiful song! I love Sara Bareilles singing together with John Legend. It sounds so good 👏

Tom Odell – Summer day

“I don’t know much about society
Or if we’re growing up quicker than we’re meant to be”

The lyrics is so relatable and it’s just such a happy song. The animation is pretty funny. It’s a song which makes me think of Summer days. I can’t wait for Summer time which always makes me happy and relax 🌞🌊

Thank you all for reading this blog post. What was your favourite song from my list? Which music did you listen to in April? Let me know in the comments. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,
