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.

“***Flawless” by Beyoncé


One day I will devote the time it will take to write about why I love Beyoncé so much.  In the meantime, let us celebrate her genius through videos.  ***Flawless is one of my favorite songs on this album.

First off, the hip-hop rappin Girls Tyme.  Second, this video is DOPE.  Third, the message of this song is awesome.  Beyoncé has given us so many anthems and/or all-time phrases.  And here she is again, just GIVING us like three more.  Tell me you haven’t used/heard the terms – Flawless, I woke up like dis, or bow down, bitches – in the last year.  Why?  Because it’s awesome.  Do it.  Shake your hands in front of your face and say “I woke up like dis!”  And then strike a pose and say “we flawless.”  Now tell me you’re not feelin’ yourself right now.  Fourth, Skeleton Crew.

Bow down, bitches.

PVOTD: “One Man Can Change the World” by Big Sean


Two things: I love Big Sean and I love my grandma.  This song about how much Big Sean loves his grandma kills me.  Add John Legend and Yeezy singing, and I need like five minutes to recover.

Ain’t nothin sweeter than a boy who loves his gramma.

PVOTD: “Beat Down” by Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas Feat. Iggy Azalea

“There’s a party on your face, and I’m about to dance on it.  Bout to dance on it.  Bout to dance on it.”

This is two years old, but it’s new to me.  I love it so much.  It’s hard to pick favorites with Iggy, but this is a contender.
