Sail Out- Jhene Aiko- Def Jam- 8/10
Favorite Tracks: ‘Bed Peace,’ ‘WTH,’ ‘Stay Ready,’ ‘The Worst’
I have been very excited about the release of Jhene’s new EP, Sail Out for months. Once I heard her single, ‘Bed Peace,’ I was sure the EP would be a hit. I was a little disappointed in the execution of the music video, but I still had hope for the extended play. Although, Jhene’s EP is not as pulsating as her mixtape was, it still does not disappoint.
I chose to do a cover song of Cameo Lover by Kimbra because I think Kimbra has a really interesting sound. This song in particular is something I really vibed with and I thought it would be great if I could record it too. I even put my own spin on the lyrics.
You can check the video out here. I hope all of you enjoy.

Tomorrow night, I will post the video to my cover song of Cameo Lover by Kimbra. I put my own spin on it that’s a bit different from the original, so stay tuned to find out!

These are some great shots that were taken in Piscataway, NJ. This was actually my first photo shoot from about 2 1/2 years ago. I thought since it’s #throwbackthursday, it would be a fun shoot to post. The first photo is so telling actually because after every take, I was just laughing. To this day, standing in front of a camera without breaking out into my normal huge smile makes me laugh.
I like this outfit because minus the shoes it’s a great update on the traditional work ensemble. A lot of times, business attire is not the most exciting attire and I dread the official day I start in the workforce because I don’t want to be stuck wearing grey on grey on boring. Why not change it up? Going to a place where you spend most of your time should represent you in some way. For me, a blue pencil skirt and a polka dot blazer makes going to work just a bit more colorful and creative.
