2020 has not been a great year for most people, and the world has now seemingly come to a stand still of weird emotions and occurrences. Throughout this, it is sometimes hard to feel sane and stay in a happy place. While some music is made to simply get lit to or keep you sad, now is the time to calm yourself. Lately, I have listened to some amazing female artists that have made me feel empowered and peaceful even during the most unsettling times. Here are four of my favorite tracks as of late:
The last several weeks have seen countless discussions on the appropriateness of the Washington Redskins’ name and logo; after a thorough review, the team finally decided to change them.
Late Chicago rapper Juice WRLD’s first posthumous album “Legends Never Die” hit streaming services on July 10. Boasting a whopping 21 songs, fans were given a mixed bag of songs and interludes that ranged from melodramatic ballads to pop-punk rock songs. The album also features many popular artists like Halsey, Polo G, and Trippie Redd, all of who provide more depth and differing sounds.
While Summer Walker’s last full-length album was definitely “Deeper,” her new EP satisfies all moods with new sounds and styles. The extended play titled Life On Earth dropped this past Friday, July 10, and has brought varying reactions from fans.
As Covid-19 cases begin to rise again in Michigan and a fresh wave of restrictions seem imminent, my stress levels regarding the ongoing global pandemic have skyrocketed. And I’m certainly not alone. Almost everyone I’ve talked to in the last week has felt at least unsettled by the way cases are going up.
Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson made headlines earlier this month over his use of anti-semitic comments on his Instagram story. Jackson has since issued an apology and says that his comments were taken “the wrong way.” With the way race is being handled in the NFL at the moment, Jackson’s comments are a large step in the wrong direction.
As communities around the state, nation and world experience mixed success in their efforts to manage an ongoing pandemic, and the threat of spiking COVID-19 cases looms, EMU continues to move forward “cautiously but deliberately” with the university’s plan for classes and some other activities to return to campus this fall.
Lil Baby recently released a track titled The Bigger Picture. Many have called it a protest song, and I certainly would as well. That’s because the lyrics directly reference police brutality, COVID-19, race relations, a country divided, Lil Baby’s personal experience as a black man in America, and more.
Kanye West recently dropped a track featuring Travis Scott that’s named “Wash Us In The Blood”. It’s his first music release since "Jesus Is Born" was released last Christmas.
The past few years of my life, I have come to learn more about myself and what I believe in. More recently, I have gotten comfortable sticking up for those beliefs.
Over the course of the past few seasons, the Washington Redskins have faced scrutiny over the mascot of their team. So much so, in fact, that their stadium sponsor, FedEx, has asked them to change their mascot, and Nike has removed all Redskins gear from their website.
It has been a buzzworthy 2019-2020 court session. Chief Justice John Roberts became the deciding vote this week for striking down a Louisiana anti abortion law which closely mirrored a Texas law from 2016. The Texas law had been struck down by a deciding vote from since-retired Anthony Kennedy, who was often the swing justice on social issues like abortion and LGBTQ+ rights. Some suggest Roberts is taking up the mantle as a swing justice, pointing to recent cases regarding the census, gerrymandering, LGBTQ+ rights, and the recent abortion ruling.
"Search Party" originally aired on TBS from 2016-2017 to high praise for genre-bending storytelling that progresses each season. In 2018, it was renewed for two more seasons, but this time on a new network: HBO Max. After a long wait, the series premiered on the streaming service on June 25, 2020 - and it did not disappoint.
Hungry for some new music? Listen to 6LACK’s new "6pc Hot" EP to get a beautiful fill of good vibes and varying styles. The extended play is six tracks long, all of which discuss a multitude of topics from family to feelings to the saddening conditions of the current world.
Jack Harlow recently dropped a remix of “WHATS POPPIN”. It features him,Tory Lanez, DaBaby, and Lil Wayne. Initially, I was surprised by the big names Harlow was able to get to hop on the remix. But after thinking about it for a bit, it makes sense.
“The View” is not a show geared towards the college age audience, but it also doesn’t have the same “stay-at-home mom” feel it did when it started in 1997. My hope is that college students will watch a few episodes and form their own view of whether they should be watching it or not.
Jessie Reyez released her debut studio album "Before Love Came to Kill Us" earlier this year on March 27. Now, months later, she has created an animated music video for her track “Intruders,” a piece that has only added to the song's beauty.
Over the last week, swift action has been taken to oust Beth Bashert as mayor following a racially insensitive comment. In response to the knowledge that Bashert was being tracked on her decommissioning of Black Ypsilanti leaders and antagonism towards Black City Council members, she claimed she would be “crucified” if she were to vote “no” on the reinstatement of Ka’Ron Gaines to the Human Relations Commission - therefore voting “yes.” The City Council followed by voting “no,” pointing to issues of attendance and a lack of interest and devoting the rest of the meeting to calling Bashert out on her comment.
Ashnikko’s newest release displays her wide variety of talent between its unique sound, clever lyrics, and out-of-the-box music video. The new single “Cry” is one of two tracks so far that are said to be included on the artist's upcoming project.
Raury, a multi-genre 24 year old musical artist from Atlanta, recently released a single titled “Take Back The Power.” As America limps through the ongoing global pandemic and has a light shone on institutionalized racism, there’s more and more hurt to go around every day. While it is easy to wallow in these times, and let them drown you, there are better ways to react. Singer and rapper Raury Tullis (known professionally as Raury) provides a beautiful example of a better way to react- take back the power.
