PVOTD: “Mr. Watson” by Cruel Youth


Most people have their short list of artists who make them feel all the feels and can pretty much do no wrong.  This girl is on my list.  Teddy Sinclair gives me chills and I could watch her do her thing forever.  After being pushed to the section of pop culture reserved for Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriends, Teddy rose out of the shit like a dark, sexy phoenix.  Every time I saw an Instagram of Teddy and Willy Moon mixing in a shitty hotel room, I felt like a kid at Christmas.  After all the waiting, this is what we got – an all female trio called Cruel Youth, fronted by Teddy.  This video for their first single joins a long line of previous videos by Teddy that are better than most award-winning short films.

I could not feel more #blessed with this one.

PVOTD: “Who I Be” by Nova Rockafeller ft. Hot Karl

Jimmy and I discovered this girl last year thanks to Spotify.  Usually when that happens, the awesome artist/group has already been buried and have a good real estate business or something.  Not only is Nova Rockafeller still putting out music, it’s disgustingly good.

Female rappers FTW.

ANTI – Rihanna


“let me cover your shit in glitter, I can make it gold”

Is this album real?  Like, is this really happening?  It’s a good thing Jimmy loves it too, otherwise I would have to find my headphones.  Can’t stop, won’t stop.  Every song is so different in the most amazing way.  You can feel everything that went into making this album and it’s beautiful.  I’ve been riding the Team Rihanna train since ‘Pon the Replay, and through 7 albums, I’ve never been disappointed.  This is album #8.  Eight!  Rihanna is 28 years old.  No wonder lil mama always being hospitalized for exhaustion.

I’m mesmerized by this album.  Gurl, you done goooooood.  Also with this album comes a big moment in my girl Teddy Sinclair’s life.  She co-wrote “Kiss It Better” which I absolutely LOVE.  Teddy is one of the best songwriters I’ve ever come across and it warms my heart to see her spreading her magic.

PS: Rihanna + Drake = Dream Team.  I love the love between those two.
