Artists You Need To Hear About

Artists You Need To Hear About

Here is some music you need to listen to.

Huffington Post

If you know me, you know that I am extremely passionate about music. I love finding artists who are not well-known and telling people about their music. I have a underground playlist of artists that I listen to that I would like to share. So without further adieu, here are some songs you may have never heard of, but should.

1. James Bay

I recently just discovered James Bays' incredible music, and I have been obsessed with it lately. I am seeing him in concert in a few weeks as well, and am looking forward to seeing him perform live. You probably have already his popular song, "Let it Go," but his other songs are fantastic as well. I highly recommend all of the songs on his most recent album, Chaos and the Calm, but a couple of my other favorite songs are "Hold Back the River," "Scars," and "Best Fake Smile."

2. Troye Sivan

You probably have heard of Troye Sivan, especially recently, as his music is growing more and more popular. I discovered him via his YouTube channel in 2013, and have been in love with him and his music ever since. I had the absolute privilege of seeing him live last spring, and he was just as incredible as I imagined he would be. His song "Youth" was pretty popular on the radio this past summer, but I adore the rest of his first album "Blue Neighborhood" as well. Some of my favorite songs on the album include "LOST BOY," "for him." and "SUBURBIA." Another one of his noteworthy songs is "The Fault in Our Stars," which includes a music video of him interacting with children with cancer in the hospital, so that's pretty cute.

3. Gabrielle Aplin

I love this woman and her music so much. All of her songs are calming and peaceful, and I often fall asleep to them. Her songwriting is something I have honestly never seen before in any other artist. All of her songs speak to me in some way, and I recommend her music to anyone and everyone. Some of my favorite songs of hers include "Home," "Please Don't Say You Love Me," "Panic Cord," and "Lying to the Mirror." Definitely listen to her music, she is one of my favorite artists for sure.

4. Grace

You may know Grace by her recent single with G-Eazy, "You Don't Own Me." But aside from that song, she is a very little known artist that has amazing. Some of my favorite songs of hers include "The Honey," "Hope You Understand," and "Church on Sunday." Her music is sassy and perfect for a drive in the car. I saw her live recently, and her voice was so powerful, you could tell she was passionate about what she was singing.

5. Birdy

I have been listening to Birdy for quite a while now, and I love all of her songs. Her lyrics are unique and different than popular music. A few of my favorites are "Wings," "People Help the People," "Light Me Up," "Words as Weapons," and "Terrible Love." If you haven't been blessed by her voice yet, definitely check her music yet.

6. Ben Rector

Ben Rector is well-known for his current hit song "Brand New," but the rest of his songs are just as wonderful. His love songs are to die for, and I love all of them so much. Some of my picks are "When a Heart Breaks," "Forever Like That," "When I'm With You," "30,000 Feet," and "I Like You." My personal favorite song by him though is "The Men That Drive Me Places." My take on it is that he is talking about his taxi drivers and their stories. It is amazing, and I honestly cry every time I listen to it.

These are some of my personal favorite artists that you may have never heard of/listened to before. And if you have heard of them, you may have only heard of their popular, "radio" songs. I definitely encourage you to look up some songs on this list that you have never of and fall in love with them like I did.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
