Lukas Graham

             Out of all the artists I have done a blog on, I have to say Lukas Graham has to be the one I'm most excited to blog about. His music means so much to me and I'm pretty sure to millions of others.
He might not be as big or worshipped like other artist but his music outweighs the fame of it all. Lukas Graham is a lyrical genius. If you just set aside the music and REALLY capture the lyrics and comprehend it, Lukas Graham will become everything you never knew you needed. He's a Danish pop singer, with lots of soul. Lukas is like a mixture of Andy Grammer and Ed Sheeran but better.
You might have heard his song (7 years) which debuted at number 1 might I add ! His first tour sold over 30,000 tickets without his album even being released yet.
        Lukas knew he was meant for so much greater and he worked hard. The biggest blow for him was the passing of his father, whom he based his album on. On the alvum he mourned his fathers death, cherished his parents advice and speaks about how he wants to be as good as a man as his father was to his own children one day.

Prince



The musical legend, the guitar hero, a true ICON. Prince was able to turn rain purple I mean who could do what prince did? That was a rhetorical question so don't bother answering it. PRINCE was untouchable and his music touched millions. Prince had many great qualities but one thing is for sure he was unique. He spoke his mind and never held his tongue for nobody. I'm pretty much an old soul so I listen to music before my time and when I tell you prince makes you feel so unapologetic. *laughing emoji* Lets not talk about his style....... he had his own walk and talk. That’s what made prince so iconic.







His death left the world is sorrow but he left this world with a beautiful gift .His music and memories. When a legend like this passes we mourn but with each generation we carry on his name with other musical legends like Michael Jackson and David Bowie. Music is a universal form of communication and prince mastered it !

Beyonce (lemonade)

First Beyonc√© had us drinking watermelon now she has us drinking lemonade. Maybe she hasn't picked her favorite flavor. Either way she dropped some atomic bombs with her new visual album release that aired on HBO.  Bey opened with her sold out show with a solo while kneeling on a stage, dressed in black like the mafia with a head wrap before she began to sing from her single "Pray You Catch Me". The first thing that caught everyone’s attention is the lyrics "You can taste the dishonesty, it's all over your breath." *inserts shocked emoji* *inserts eyes emoji* in that moment I was blessed to NOT be jay-z. Can you imagine having one of the most successful women on the planet as your wife and STILL manage to be unfaithful. The bey hive is FURIOUS. Beyonc√© also let jay-z know she carried hot sauce in her bag......Before you ask what does that have to do with his unfaithfulness, hot sauce...wait for it......IS A BAT *laughing while crying emoji x5*. she was basically letting him know you cheat again something’s coming in hot.
Beyonce will most likel win an oscar AND a grammy .The visual album/movie was amazing and well worth the mixed signals.

Sam Smith

    Let's talk about the man version of Adele . Sam smith has some vocal chords on him *inserts hand clap emoji*. From pop to down right soul music there isn't any song that Sam smith can put out and it Don't go number 1.Sam smith rose to fame back in October 2012 , when he was featured on Disclosure's breakthrough single "latch" . yes, I'm talking about that song you just couldn't get out your head. The one where as soon as you hear the melody you start screaming the lyrics *im that annoying friend who does that* .from the "NOW I GOT YOUUUUUU IN MY SPACE , O WONT LET GO OF YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU" he should have one every Grammy catoforized just for that song I don't what anyone says . 
   That's that face you make when you know from now on nobody's gonna win an award if they are ever in the same catagory you.With four Grammys and no care in the world, sam smith most defiantly has no competion.

Zayn Malik

    From One Direction to going his OWN direction , Zayn Malik has proven himself to be a successful solo artist. Although he might be the Wal-Mart version of both  Justin Timberlake and Nick Jonas, he also has a passion for soul music and wanting to reinvent his image. His album Mind of Mine was released on march 25, and went to number 1 on iTunes. Coming from a very successful boy band, Zayn wanted to venture out and he stated  “I genuinely enjoyed [the band] and did whatever I could to be myself within that, but it’s just not where I sit as a musician,” he says. “The other boys’ taste was generally indie rock. It’s good music, but I don’t f--- with it. That was never cool where I was from.”
Although Zayn gained worldwide stardom from 1D he is most defiantly doing all he has to make sure he is no longer catoforized with the same group .Maybe JUST maybe he will be able to obtain the same amount of stardom as a solo artist this time around.

john mayer

  SWOON!! thats the first thing that comes to my mind when i hear John Mayer sings. He has a mix of Stevie wonder soul and James Morrison raspy voice. John mayer is a very unique artist, although you may not hear his songs on the radio everyday his music is very well known and respected. Songs like "your body is a wonderland" "comfortable" and my all time favorite "gravity". The thing that makes John mayer so unique compared to other musicians is the amount of failed surgeries he underwent to repair a granuloma in his throat. Although adele had surgery and feared her vocals wouldn't be the same either john on the other hand was told by his doctor that it could be years until he could sing again or he may never sing again. finally, in 2012 the surgery went just as planned and blessed the world with his amazing vocals again.

Over the years john has won 7 Grammys and nominated over 8 times. In February 2015, Mayer performed alongside Ed Sheeran at the Grammy awards As of march, He was working on a "deeply personal new album". There is no denying I am super excited for his new upcoming album.
