The Soundtrack of My Life

the music that keeps me going…

You said you were different…

on August 19, 2011

but you’re the same. Straaaaanger.

I can not tell you,
how many there have been 
that were just like you
I do not need you
cause you’re just like them.

I meet em’ everyday 
they…all seem to be the same 
lame. okay?

I’m late to Jhene Aiko. I had seen her name around twitter–where I follow some of the best people in terms of musical tastes, really. There are a handful of folks whose opinions I  trust and I make a mental note to check out who they are checking for.  I don’t always do right away (like now) but I get around to it. Earlier this week I downloaded her mixtape and I’ve been vibing to it every since.

Jhene’s Sailing Souls mixtape came out in March, and the video for this song in particular dropped last month sometime. I haven’t yet peeped anything else by her but I do dig the sound on this project.

you know my name, you know my face,
but you don’t know me? you must be crazy…

or I must be crazy. or is it maybe…
I’ve been here times before and 
I’ve said yes, meaning no but oh…
alot of shit has changed. lot of shit has changed.
lot of lot of shit has changed…

Didn’t I tell you what all the rest have done?
they were just like you, they have all tried to.
you’re not the only one.

I think we may be
In a different book
on a different page…

There is also a remix with Jesse Boykins III I found out via the magic of the google. In my opinion, JB3’s voice oozes sex. He could sing the alphabet and make it sexy. So I guess this could qualify as #freakyfridaypost too! peep below.

you know my name we play our games lately I feel like this romance is hazy…

Are you familiar with Jhene Aiko? If so, please let me know what some faves are. If not, check it out for yourself. If you read here, I assume you value my opinion too! Preciate it.

Happy Friday. 🙂

    I was super late on her too – I kept seeing her name on blogs like Pigeons & Planes, and I had downloaded her mixtape but for whatever reason it took me forever to listen to it. But once I did I fell in love. My faves are “Hoe” with Miguel (and Gucci’s verse from Pretty Girls), “July” with Drake & “Higher”.

    I am glad that I found my way over here. I love these songs and especially like the one with Jesse B.
