Now Playing: Spotify Wrapped 2019

Happy Friday ya’ll!

If you’re an avid Spotify user like I am, you know that the end-of-the-year music round-up has been released and I must say that I’m not surprised with the results.

I’ve been sharing my results all over my socials, but I figured, why not share on my blog too!?

Top Artists

bfbb1037-dce4-49da-9a74-c21b56fe9d6c

 

  1. BLACKPINK – I became a fan in May 2019 and a stan July 2019. I didn’t know much about BP prior to their Coachella performance, but one day I was scrolling through Twitter and then I fell down the rabbit hole. From May to about September they were all I listened to. According to Spotify, I listened to them for a total of 292 hours. That doesn’t include YT streams or Apple Music. Mind you, I never obsessed about KPOP before them.
  2. Ariana Grande – We all know I love Ariana Grande. How can you not? Last year’s “Sweetener” was an amazing album with “God is a woman” and my personal faves, “everytime” and “breathin.”  Then her surprise drop of “thank u, next” had some memorable tracks. Both “7 Rings” and “thank u, next” were iconic. Now, I’m hoping for the AriPink collab to happen soon!
  3.  JENNIE (BLACKPINK) – She literally has one song and I guess I streamed it so many times, but I ain’t mad at this result. “SOLO” was released last year and it’s been doing so well in the charts as a solo KPOP artist. Jennie Kim is my bias and I’m pretty sure I’ll love her forever. One day I hope to see here “SOLO” stage live.
  4. Taylor Swift – I’ve been a fan of Taylor’s since her debut in country pop. But to be honest, I haven’t really enjoyed her past few albums. Then she came out with her “Lover” album and I felt like I was listening to the old Taylor that I loved. “Daylight” was the one song that I had on repeat this year.
  5. Alex Aiono – He’s one of my favorite YouTube artists of this decade. I remember the first video of his that I fell in love with, “One Dance/Hasta El Amanecer”. When he started to sing in Spanish, I literally fell in love and followed him since. Alex released some heartbreaking tracks this year and while I love them, I wonder who broke his heart.

 

World Citizen

According to Spotify, I’ve listened to artists from 32 different countries!

  1. BLACKPINK (South Korea)
  2. Ariana Grande (US)
  3. Shawn Mendes (Canada)
  4. Sam Smith (UK)
  5. NIKI (Indonesia)

I’m a bit bummed that artists from the Philippines didn’t make my top list since OPM is one of my top genres.

Top Songs of 2019

I’m not surprised with my top songs because most of them are by BLACKPINK. They only have about 13 recorded songs since their debut in 2016, and that is not including remixes and Japanese versions! But of course Ariana Grande made my top 5 with “7 rings” and “Hot Girl Summer” rounded out the top 10.

Music Monday: #OnRepeat

What’s up readers?!

Spotify is my best friend during my work day, my drive home, and when I’m relaxing in the comfort of my own room.

I love most genres of music and you can find me creating/adding different playists to my Spotify queue. I have one playlist in particular where I add newer songs that I can’t stop playing. It’s conveniently called “*****On Repeat.*****”. Note the stars in the name. They help me find the playlist easily when it’s not my Recently Played list.

Today I’d like to share the last six songs added to this list of mine.


“I’ll Find You” Lecrae feat. Tori Kelly

When I first heard this song on the “New Music Friday” playlist many weeks ago, I thought it was so beautiful. I’ve been a fan of Tori Kelly and her angelic voice since her YouTube days, so naturally I was curious to see what new music she had out. Despite not knowing who Lecrae was, I gave it a listen. Around the time this song was released, I was not feeling like myself. As I listened to the lyrics, I felt like it was very encouraging and hope. I felt like it was a reminder I needed. Also, the music video is heartbreaking.

“Attention – Acoustic Version” by Charlie Puth

The original version of this song was on my playlist after it was released in April, but if you know me, you know I’m a sucker for anything acoustic. I’m also a sucker for songs by Charlie Puth. In my opinion, he’s a great song writer and knows how to portray exactly what he’s feeling. Now when I first heard this song, I immediately though it was about his drama with Bella Thorne, bur he says it’s inspired by something he saw on IG. What a coincidence. Anyways, the song is super catchy and there’s so much shade.

“Hear Me” by DJ Luane & Mecha feat. Rhian Ramos

I have a love for Rhian Ramos, so naturally I’m here to support her. When this song was released I was super excited to hear it since it was Rhian’s first single. It was an unexpected release, but I knew she was working on something huge for herself and her fans. I was very proud of what I heard. Her voice suits this song and it’s much more sweeter knowing she’s worked hard to put some music out there. This song definitely has me bobbing my head and dancing a lot to it whenever it comes on. I can’t wait to hear what’s next.

“Wild Thoughts” by DJ Khaled feat. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller

I’m in love with this song. I love that DJ Khaled sampled the Santana song, “Maria Maria” because I fell in love to the sounds of the guitar played by Carlos Santana. The song is super sexy, I’m sure everyone has wild thoughts about it. Okay, I’ll stop. There was a week where this song was literally on repeat that I even browsed YouTube videos of choreography to this song.

“Nobody Has to Know” by Timeflies

This isn’t the only Timeflies song on this playlist, but it’s the latest. These guys know the way to my heart with the cutest lyrics. I’m sure they weren’t going for cute, but they got me feeling all kinds of butterflies. Apparently this song was released on their YouTube channel back in February just in time for the lovers on Valentine’s Day. But it was just released on Spotify last week! The piano & the beat are perfect since it’s not really a super sappy love song. Ya’ll have to know about this song!

“Back to You” by Louis Tomlinson feat. Bebe Rehxa & Cheat Codes

Soo if I had a favorite One Direction member it would have been Louis Tomlinson. Some people judge me for that, but I thought he was the cutest, plus I didn’t have to fight much with friends about it since they loved Harry or Zayn. Anyways, it’s great seeing them doing their own things. Louis wrote a lot of 1D songs and continues to write music. I think he’s so underrated. But then again I don’t know much about him. Honestly, I didn’t really care for his first song with Steve Aoki, but this song is fire. The beat is fun and upbeat, you almost forget that it’s about a toxic relationship. It was the latest song added to my playlist and it will be on repeat for the next few days/weeks!

Bonus round: A song that’s not on this playlist, but on repeat is “Two Less Lonely People in the World” by Air Supply. I don’t know how or why I had the urge to listen to Air Supply/this song, but I’ve been belting on car rides and in the shower. I don’t even have feelings right now, but it just keeps me on my toes. I even turned on my magic mic (karaoke) a few times just to sing about two less lonely people in the world.

What new songs are on your “on repeat” playlist?

Adele
