SUMMER SOUNDS

Where did Summer go?

We’re about three weeks away from the Fall season and I wanted to share my favorite songs of the Summer. I love music – all music – and I thought I’d share my favorites from the last 3 months. I heard the VMAs we’re on last night? How did I miss that?!

This has been such an incredible Summer for me and I love having a soundtrack to my life…so thank you Spotify for keeping all of my playlists in order! I narrowed it down to 12 songs – and I love ALL of them. There are so many more songs (many personal ones that probably aren’t that popular, that I decided to keep off the list) but I am pretty sure everyone has heard these 12!

Click below to listen to my favorites of the season. XO

  1. Wild Thoughts
  2. Unforgettable
  3. Magnolia
  4. Despacito
  5. It Ain’t Me
  6. Crying in the Club
  7. First Day Out
  8. Redbone
  9. Signs
  10. Blem
  11. Mask Off
  12. LOVE

FAVORITE SONGS THIS MONTH

Hey everyone,

For some reason I’ve decided against hitting the “MAKE PUBLIC” button on my April Spotify Playlist this month; probably because half the songs on it are old anyways. 🙂 January, February, and March are free to look through though!

I did, however, want to share some of my favorite songs this month. Feel free to listen to some of my favorites linked below (some old, some new):

Beyonce – Shining

ShaboozeY – Winning Streak

Shoffy – Different Skies

Lana Del Rey – Love

The Revivalists – Wish I Knew You

Gorgon City – Real

Future – Mask Off

Travis Scott – Nightcrawler

Have an amazing weekend!

PS: LA peeps, it’s going to be HOT this weekend. I am SO excited. Enjoy babies. XO

HAPPY MARCH! (PLAYLIST)

HAPPY MARCH! (PLAYLIST)

Can you believe it? We are now starting Month 3 of 2017. I am so excited for this month. I finally feel like things are starting to settle down and I am finding my groove. With that being said, I thought I’d get a head start on my March playlist. I have been getting messages from people like “LOL I forgot about this song.” Like I’ve said before, I have no direction when it comes to music – new, old, hip hop, house, you name it. Below are the songs that are currently on my March 2017 playlist that you can find on Spotify by searching for “natashatadros” in the search bar. It’s not finished yet so check back in mid-month 🙂

Enjoy!

BRAND NEW MONTH – BRAND NEW PLAYLIST

BRAND NEW MONTH – BRAND NEW PLAYLIST

Happy February! I seriously hope you’re all enjoying 2017 so far. Many changes are in store for me this year…it’s all pretty crazy. At the same time though, it’s all very exciting. I have been creating my new February playlist and I wanted to share some of my favorite songs so far. Like I’ve said before, to say my music taste is eclectic would be an understatement. I love J.Cole just as much as I love Chet Faker. I love The Weeknd just as much as I love Mura Masa. I wanted to share 5 of my favorite songs right now, my Spotify playlist is very short for now and I am sure throughout the month it will grow and grow! 🙂

  1. Mura Masa/ A$AP Rocky – Love$ick
  2. Chet Faker – Talk Is Cheap
  3. J.Cole – Deja Vu
  4. Sean Paul/Torey Lanez – Tek Weh Yuh Heart (one of my favorites – and to properly translate: Talk With Your Heart LOL)
  5. Ed Sheeran – Shape of You

XO.

NAMASTE PLAYLIST

NAMASTE PLAYLIST

The weather outside is so beyond beautiful today my heart is literally bursting. LOL. I wanted to share another MUSIC post today. Lately, I’ve spent a lot of time at the yoga studio, taking different classes with different instructors. Needless to say, my favorite class is anything Victoria (one of my good friends) teaches. With that being said, the best part of yoga for me is the music. I happen to be so lucky when it comes to the instructors I pick…they all have bomb playlists. I compiled a list on Spotify called “YOGA 2017” – you can find me by searching for “natashatadros.” Feel free to check out all the amazing songs on that specific playlist. It’s a compilation of songs from July 2015-until now. (Side note: I started yoga back in July of 2015 and I haven’t looked back).

My favorite songs are usually the ones that remind me of Victoria’s classes, mainly because she’s the greatest instructor of all time. LOL. Feel free to add some of these songs to your workout playlist for a good warm up/cool down. Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Bonobo – Kerala
  2. Chet Faker – No Diggity
  3. Aaliyah – Back & Forth
  4. Saje – Lost Tonight
  5. ODESZA – How Did I Get Here
  6. Marian Hill – Breathe Into Me  (Victoria’s warm up song)
  7. ODESZA – Say My Name (Victoria’s song choice when I’m about to die 🙂 )
  8. Gorgon City – Imagination (One of my favorites that Victoria plays for the ABS segment LOL)
  9. Beyonce – XO (Victoria’s cool down song)

I hope you all have an AMAZING week filled with lots of light and laughter. XO

MY FAVORITE SONGS OF 2017…SO FAR.

MY FAVORITE SONGS OF 2017…SO FAR.

Happy Tuesday! I wanted to write a quick post on my favorite songs at the moment. It’s funny how I have a MUSIC tab on my blog yet barely post about it. Music is 90% of my life so I find it interesting how I manage to always have a song in my ear yet barely take enough time to share my favorite songs with you all. Read along to hear about some of my favorites!

I like to categorize my Spotify playlists by month and year. The main reason for this is to reflect back on where I was at that time, remember how much I loved a song, etc. I am someone who has ZERO direction when it comes to music. I like Hip Hop, R&B, House, basically anything. Everything kind of flows together for me depending on my mood. I have a couple of SERIOUS favorites that I will make note of now. Lately, my two favorite songs are: Niia – Body and Redondo – Every Single Piece (LVNDSCAPE Remix). I will probably spend more time on certain songs explaining why they’re my favorites but I highly suggest you check all of them out. I promise, when it comes to music, I wont disappoint you!

For starters, Niia’s “Body touches my soul. LOL. There’s no other way to put it. The way she says “It’s my love for you” is honestly half the reason I listen to this song on repeat. I am currently listening to it right now, and I listen to it about 7 times a day…everyday. The song’s meaning isn’t what gets me, it’s the way she actually talks about how its her love for a person that keeps them alive.

My next favorite is Redondo’s Every Single Piece (LVNDSCAPE Remix). I spent SERIOUS time looking for this exact song. Every single time (pun intended) I play this for someone, whether it’s my dad, a cousin, a friend…they stop and tell me how much they like the song. It’s one of those feel good songs. I genuinely can’t wait to be on a beach this year, drink in hand, blasting this song. It’s just good feels all around.

Here are some other favorites and why I like them:

Childish Gambino – LES // It’s not just the hook, the hook is a given. It’s the bridge. Childish Gambino takes a second and reflects on the relations he had with a girl he once considered to be the “baddest.” He ends it by sharing his hurt feelings and stating:

“Ooh girl, I wanna try
I’m an awful guy and I’m always away
And I’m tryin’ to say
I’m a piece of shit
Believe in this
I’m tellin’ you
Cause we barely knew, what we had
I’m not that bad, the fun we had
Ooh”

Gucci Mane feat. Drake – Both // Let me preface this with saying I am not a Gucci Mane fan. On that note though, I am definitely a Drake fan…ALWAYS. It’s one of those songs that clearly let’s you know that when a song says “feat. Drake” it usually means “This is Drake’s song now.”

Zimmer feat. Emilie Adams – Escape // This is another feel good song. A Friday night song. A song to get you through traffic and actually enjoy yourself while doing so. My favorite line, one that seems to be rather profound, is when she says “Tell me to breathe, yet you take my oxygen.” She talks about escaping something much bigger than herself.

Big Sean – Bounce Back // If you know me, then you know exactly why I even like this song! It’s one of those — WINDOWS DOWN, MUSIC BLASTING kind of songs 🙂 The main reason why I like this song is because he states that people change more than wishing wells – their allegiance constantly switches and they can’t remain loyal to one side. He let’s it be known that karma will come around and he wishes them well when it does. BEST LINE.

Last, but definitely not least…one of my all time favorite songs EVER…

Manila Killa feat. Satica – Youth // It’s special to me for so many reasons. Don’t let the lyrics throw you, this is honestly just one of my favorite songs of all time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I hope you all take the time to either add all of these songs to one of your Spotify playlists or at least check them out. Each of these songs are currently in my JANUARY 2017 Playlist and may even make it on to the February 2017 Playlist if I don’t play them out by the month’s end. If you choose to listen to 3 of the 7 songs I just mentioned, please choose:

Niia – Body

Redondo – Every Single Piece (LVNDSCAPE Remix)

Manila Killa feat. Satica – Youth

Are there any songs you’d like to share? I am ALWAYS interested in new music! XO

 

Playlist for August 2016

Playlist for August 2016

Hi everyone, I hope the month of August is off to a great start for you. As you know, I am a huge fan of all genres of music. I love hip hop, deep house, pop, R&B…you name it–I like it. I do not discriminate when it comes to music. I am a huge Spotify junkie who spends time putting my playlists together. One of my favorite things to do is name my playlists by month and year, for example, “AUGUST 2016.” The main reason for this is because I find myself reminiscing about certain times, months or seasons in my life and I consider Spotify to basically be the soundtrack to my life 🙂 With that being said, I wanted to share with you my favorite songs that I have added to this month’s playlist. My top 5 favorite songs right now are: Continue reading “Playlist for August 2016”

Concerts on a Monday night? NO THANK YOU. Unless you are dvsn—my god, what a performance. My weekends have been exhausting lately: weddings, graduation parties, family events and bbq’s…I have found that I catch up on sleep during the week! Go figure. So as I sip my Tazo Awake tea, I can’t help but think of my Monday night. I am currently listening to Try/Effortless as I type this short post. I am for sure that dvsn is the next Weeknd. The concert was at the Roxy. The concert was epic. The concert, some may say, was legendary.

Cut to scene 1—I am surrounded by many different people—18 year olds fresh out of the movie DOPE. 30 year olds talking about the Alchemist. Drinks are flowing. Diddy passes me with heavy security in tow. Diddy’s here?
