Joelle James' Apply Pressure

Joelle James has new music out now and it's all anyone can talk about!

Joelle James' Apply Pressure

Joelle James was born in Southern California and started singing when she was five years old and did all types of engagements. She sang loads of of national anthems, she did musical theater, and she vividly remembers auditioning for The Cheetah Girls when she was younger. She ended up going to Berklee College of Music and from Boston, she went on to create YouTube videos and do covers. Youtube is where the infamous, Chris Brown discovered her and this led her to her first record deal at Interscope Records.

She's discovered her talents at song writing, which led her to her Grammy for writing her song, "Boo'd Up."

She is currently signed to 12Tone and has created her own MultiMedia Company, VNLLAFCTRY. Through VNLLAFCTRY and 12Tone, she's released many different singles like 'Heart Can't Take it' and her most recent single, 'Apply Pressure.'

Apply Pressure is a song Joelle wrote about perseverance and actually wrote this song back when she wrote Boo'd Up which was released back in 2018. The song was written with her struggles within the music industry in mind. She had always felt like no one believed in her and all the set backs she's had were eventually going to catch up to her. However, by applying pressure, you can create diamonds and that's where she's heading instead.

She most recently released her lyric video for 'Apply Pressure' which you can find here.

Be on the lookout for more music from Joelle James coming later this summer!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
