India Arie – That Magic

Since it’s Movember, we decided to go with a song that pays homage to our fellow brother. In this song, India Arie speaks about a man who has “that” magic, but he describes him in such a respectful way.

It definitely has a feel-good vibe to it, but at the same time, it evokes a certain appreciation of the men in our lives.

I’m certain you’re going to love this song, any song that you want to dedicate to the important men in your life? Do it in the comment box below. 🙂 Next week we continue with content that is Movember related.

Tori Kelly – Don’t You Worry ’bout A Thing

This song was submitted by our favourite writer, Simanye Sam. It is originally by Stevie Wonder. Tori Kelly did a remake of this song and performed it as a soundtrack for the movie, SING.

It’s another feel-good song with a very old-school feel and it’s about just owning your being just as you are.

Smiley Faces – Gnarles Barkley

The first time I heard this song was on Dancing With The Stars South Africa, where Zola Nombona and her partner, Tebogo, did the Jive. I remember rewinding the performance, just to catch the lyrics so that I could Google them and I’m just glad I did that.

Everything about this song says SMILE! DANCE! LIVE! It’s such a fun song and an old one at that but I can’t fight how current it feels and how it just brightens the current state that we find ourselves in.

There’s something about music being timeless, here’s a piece that I feel everyone needs on their phones, and in their cars. This song is such a mood lifter.

OSHUN – Me (Explicit)

It’s Friday, and you know what that means, it’s Music Day. I came across this track on my playlist and I fell in love with the message.

Never mind the fact that the beat is totally crazy and has an old school feel to it, which I totally love, the power in the lyrics is overwhelmingly beautiful. If this song was mainstream, it would definitely pass as an anthem for women.

It talks about trusting your purpose and always staying true to who you are amidst everything that you’re going through. It’s also about regaining in confidence in yourself and depending on yourself to change the world around you.

Jamila Woods – Holy (Reprise)

Singer, songwriter and poet, Jamila Woods gave us this beautiful song in 2017 on her album HEAVN. Holy is a personal favourite of mine especially considering the fact that it’s about not depending on anyone or anything else for your happiness but yourself.

It’s one of those songs that you can pop on in the morning either as you drive to work or take a shower. A definite mood lifter with a powerful message. Listen to it here:

KWAN – Ain’t No Doubt About It

We’re all about music that makes you feel good and oozes undertones of positivity because that is what we are about.

In the song Ain’t No Doubt About It, South Africa’s next biggest rapper/crooner, KWAN, gets comfortable with sharing parts of himself that have made him the man that he is today. In the same breath, he manages to pick up the overall mood whilst reminding us that as much as life can be a struggle, we WILL still shine.
