Gnash has gained a fanbase starting off with his big hit “I hate u I love u” getting so much radio play that he announced on twitter that it had recently went gold in the U.S. charts. Gnash is similar to artists like Troye Sivan and Alessia Cara according to his Spotify page. The single is listed the most listened to on his Spotify with over 200,000,000 streams, this is the single from his last album called “us” which was released March 25th,2016. That last album was released only four months before this album called “me” which isn't too shocking because those songs are labeled as singles from 2015 as well, the album was released July 5th, 2016. these three albums connect directly because the first one is named “U” the second one “Us” and the third “Me” and he connects all of them when he announces his tour called “The Me, U, and Us tour”.

The album has a very relaxed overall vibe, the sound gnash usually goes for. Gnash is a very unique artist, because he has a sound that I haven't really heard before. It reminds me of rap but much, much softer, more relaxed, and has more lyrical depth than rap normally has. He talks about a lot of situations regarding love that teens can relate to, Feelings that people feel in their youth while experiencing love, lust, and breakups. That's actually what drew me in personally, being able to relate to a song on such a personal level. He combines a bit of a hip hop beat with soft vocals giving off a very relaxed vibe but not to a point where it sounds too sad.

One song that stood out to me was the one named “One song” because it's a little different than the rest with an upbeat acoustic sound. In this song he talks about wanting to leave a party and spend time with ‘her’. It's a cute song talking about just wanting to spend time with that person, it's relatable because we’ve all liked someone to the extent of doing everything you could to spend time with them. I liked the happy vibe of this song because it is the type of song that could put you in a happy mood with the happy toned acoustic guitar and his typical soft vocals, with more singing rather than his typical spoken word/rap style. It also has a happier tone in lyrics because he's just gushing about how much he wants to leave and just spend time with her, a very heartwarming type of song.

The most played song off of this album is a song called “Feelings fade” with 2,900,271 streams being his number six most streamed on Spotify. The overall understanding of what he’s talking about is directly said “feelings fade when people change”. This is a theme that is very relatable because it's talking about realizing the one person that you truly believed was “the one” really wasn't the one. He talks about how fake friends and fake love are a waste of time/life which is something I think a lot of people can agree with. He also acknowledges the fact that there is a fear that exists about being able to handle being without that one person whom you believed at one point was the one for you, and a fear about not being okay.

The thing I love about Gnash is that he is very blunt and open lyrically, and for me the things he talks about are so relatable. The thing that makes him unique is he’s able to talk about these topics in his songs without coming off as depressing, he hits it in a way that is still calming and catchy. If I was to have to put a label on the type of music he’s producing I’d say it was a mixture of R&B, rap, and pop. if you enjoy indie music, with such a unique sound such as Troye Sivan, Alessia Cara, Hoodie Allen, etc. you’ll like Gnash! I highly recommend listening to this album even if you’re not usually into rap because it's much different than rap.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!?

Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
