November Releases: Jams That Should Be in Your Playlist
WHO THE HELL does he think he is?

Migos, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B - MotorSport - Single

Released: October 27

Migos’ “Culture 2” is on its way and our first preview of the album is “MotorSport.” The track is a perfect musical cocktail, combing big-name rappers, excellent production and controversy.

Lil Xan - Far - Single

Released: October 31

Lil Xan has only been making music for about a year but has managed to amass a pretty large following, 680 thousand Instagram followers to be exact. “Far” isn’t a very special song, simple lyrics describing elicit activity over a nice beat. Despite this, the song still bangs.

Xan hasn’t made an official statement about releasing a new album or mixtape even though he’s been consistently releasing singles, this tells us that Xanarchy is near.

Rina Sawayama - RINA

Released: October 27

Rina Sawayama’s music is like a mixture of early 2000s R&B with Japanese bubblegum pop. When you listen to “RINA” your clothes will automatically get swapped for a blue Juicy Couture tracksuit and a pair of frameless tinted glasses. It will make you miss dial-up internet and playing Snake on your Nokia. You'll love every second of it.

Majid Jordan - The Space Between

Released: October 27

“The Space Between” is OVO Sound’s fourth release of the year following Drake’s “More Life,” PARTYNEXTDOOR’s “Seven Days” and dvsn’s “Morning After.” It does a great job at creating a relaxed atmosphere and is quintessential vibe music. This album is loaded with sharp and modern beats that still manage to sound like something from the past.

N.E.R.D. and Rihanna - Lemon - Single

Released: November 1

“Lemon” is a record that can’t really be described, you have to hear it to really get it. It’s like N.E.R.D. wants to give us something to dance to, but is also trying to send a message. Their forthcoming album “No_One Ever Really Dies” doesn’t have an official release date yet but is rumoured to be arriving soon.

Big Sean & Metro Boomin - Pull Up N Wreck (feat. 21 Savage) - Single

Released: November 3

“Fuck the professor, I'm too professional,” this track is the definition of fighting words. With the help of Metro Boomin's production skills and 21 Savage's bars, Big Sean is able to convince listeners into believing that he's actually "about that life."

yaeji - EP2

Released: November 3

“EP2” features five tracks that consist of baby soft vocals layered over New York house beats. It’s a little slow at first but speeds up quickly with “raingurl”, where yaeji sing/raps in Korean and English.

J.Robb - Soulection White Label - J. Robb

Released: November 3

Before getting into the tracks it’s important to understand who and what’s behind this EP. According to their website, Soulection is a music label, radio show and a collective of artists and creators who are attempting to increase the visibility of “meaningful music.” The “White Label” portion of the title signifies that the EP is a part of Soulection’s White Label series, a collection of EPs that each feature a different producer. In this edition, the producer of choice is J.Robb, a Baltimore based producer.

Maroon 5 - Red Pill Blues

Released: November 3

A lot has changed since Maroon 5 released their iconic genre-bending album “Songs About Jane.” Since then, the band has taken on three new members and has been primarily making radio-friendly pop music. “Red Pill Blues” follows the mainstream hit formula but somehow contains elements of old Maroon 5, which for this reason alone shows that it's deserving of being on your fall playlist.

Sam Smith - The Thrill of It All

Released: November 3

Waiting for Sam Smith to release this felt like forever, but it’s only been three years since his debut album. All 14 tracks of "The Thrill of it All” are laden with amazing vocals and intense emotion. Smith’s lead single, “Too good At Goodbyes,” embodies the album’s central themes: love, fear of vulnerability, and breakups.

Wiz Khalifa - Laugh Now, Fly Later

Expected release: November 10

Last month Wiz Khalifa tweeted about his upcoming project "Laugh Now, Fly Later," giving fans the title and release date. On Monday he posted the cover art on Instagram, confirming that the mixtape is still on schedule.

Eminem - Revival

Expected release: November 17

Besides the Cypher that he did for the BET Hip Hop Awards this October, Eminem has been keeping a low profile. But rumour has it that the rapper is planning on releasing new music pretty soon. Fans should be on the lookout for a surprise performance this Sunday at the MTV Europe Music Awards.

blackbear - cybersex

Expected release: November 27

blackbear’s mixtape “cybersex” is expected to drop towards the end of November, but he has already released serval songs from the mixtape as singles. The first single was released in October and the latest, “santa monica & la brea” was released on November 2. So far "cybersex” is coming in strong with its catchy chorus’ and inclusion of noteworthy artists like Tinashe and Cam’Ron.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

The beaches are starting to open up. At least in Cape Cod, where my family and I were able to vacation this week. Near our house, we have a bit of a private beach, which is great.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.
