In every livestream I do, I know I’m going to be asked certain questions.
“How old are you?”
“Where are you from?”
Pretty standard right? Another question I’m regularly asked is, can you guess ??
“What sort of music are you into?”
Apparently the playlist of tunes I have playing in the background of each stream doesn’t give away the answer. To put it in simple terms I listen to a real mix. Pop, pop rock, dance, edm, drum and bass, jazz. There’s probably a little something that fits into every genre on my Spotify.
For today’s post, in order to satisfy everyone’s curiosity, I thought I’d share five of my favourite tracks to listen to right now.
For some reason the original version of this song is everywhere right now. I assume it was featured in a film recently or something. I love this remix. It’s more of a dance / club vibe and a lot more lively than the original. I dread to think how many ‘sexytime’ playlists the original is on. If you hear it next time you’re at your latest tinder dates house. You know it’s going down.
I’d never heard of Phil Good and if I’m honest I haven’t listened to any of his other music. I first heard this playing in the background of a Nikki Blacketter workout video and immediately fell in love. An under rated track for sure and I’d deffo recommend checking it out. An ideal tune for blasting whilst getting over a break up. You know, after you’ve done the crying your eyes out thing.
Cardi B is taking the rap world by storm. This is catchy as fuck. Wether she’s a one hit wonder or carries on running the scene I’m here for it. I watched her perform this on the Wendy Williams Show and she certainly knows how to rock the stage. You know how some people sound amazing in recordings and then you see them live and it’s just a mess. Yeah, that’s not the case here.
Trisha Paytas is my guilty pleasure. I’ve been following her for years and could quite happily bing watch her YouTube channel for hours. She’s certainly more well known / mainstream since her stint on Celebrity Big Brother UK and it’s great to see her success. Some of her music can be seen as trolling or taking the mick other tracks like Phoenix, Freaky and Warrior are genuine tunes worthy of radio play. Trisha isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re a fan of her videos her music is worth checking out.
Another track I fell in love with after hearing it in the background of a vlog. It’s not just giving off LA Vibes but summer vibes too. A chilled out chorus and upbeat verse, I could quite happily play this on repeat for hours at a time. I haven’t checked out any other tracks from Abstract but feel like maybe I should. Possibly the most ‘mainstream’ track on this list. It wouldn’t be out of place in the top 40. I imagine Abstract would be a great band to see live. I could see them being popular on the festival scene. Of all the songs mentioned in this post, this is the one I’d recommend you go listen too first. You’ll love it. I know I do.
I hope this post gives you a better idea of what music I like. No doubt if you join one of my live broadcasts you’ll hear one or two of them in the background. I play a mix because I truly listen to a real mix. It also keeps the audience happy. I don’t think anyone would be happy if I just played one artist throughout.
