We've come to the end on Komments from Karly's second anniversary! You can check out my new blog site, which will go live tomorrow! If Republican politics aren't your thing, that's totally understandable too, but give my posts a try now and then. After all, different opinions are how we grow as people and develop our own views. Hopefully, I'll even surprise you, and you'll agree with me now and then. So, for the last time, happy kommenting :)
Even though Komments from Karly will only be updated one more day, the site won’t be going away, and you can always go back and read the archives.
Feel free to explore all the different categories and dates, but I also compiled a list of my favorite posts, posts that really mean something to me. After two years, I’ve written blog posts upon blog posts, yet there are still some that really stick out to me. Check them out!
Like I said, continue to browse through the many categories and posts I created over the past two years, but definitely give these a read because they’re my favorites. I’ll miss writing about entertainment for sure, but with this many posts, we’ll have no problem reminiscing. Happy kommenting :)
Well, here we are! It’s the last top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 for June of 2016. These monthly posts are always fun because we get to see what’s happening in the music industry. This month, we have some familiar faces leading up the top 20, which we’ve been jamming to for the past couple weeks. For the last time, let’s recap:
1. One Dance (Drake feat. WizKid & Kyla)- I think this song has a nice beat, but for me, the lyrics are really lacking. Drake is one of the only rappers I enjoy, but this song just really doesn’t do it for me at all. I never thought I’d say this, but I miss “Hotline Bling.”
2. Can’t Stop the Feeling! (Justin Timberlake)- This fun, feel-good tune is perfect for the white-hot summer we have ahead of us! It’s been all over the place since its recent release, so it’s not a surprise that the track has been climbing the charts this rapidly.
3. Panda (Desiigner)- Although (as we know) this song isn’t my style, I think it’s a good song mainly in rhythm for its genre, and it rose to popularity pretty quickly, which is definitely impressive.
4. Don’t Let Me Down (The Chainsmokers feat. Daya)- This electronic dance song is really fun and has amazing rhythms woven into its track. The artists did a great job at mixing lyrics and rhythm together in one single song.
5. Work From Home (Fifth Harmony feat. Ty Dolla $ign)- I really am not a fan of the direction Fifth Harmony turned because I liked them as cute little pop stars on X-Factor, but now I feel like the girls are just trying way too hard to be provocative and sexy. All of them are extremely beautiful, but I just don’t like how they promote themselves.
6. This Is What You Came For (Calvin Harris feat. Rihanna)- Like I said only a few tracks up, I love Rihanna’s voice, and with that said, I love this song. I love the atmosphere that Calvin Harris creates with his DJ-ing, and I love Rihanna’s voice in these really smart lyrics.
7. Needed Me (Rihanna)- I love Rihanna’s voice when she really sings, really opens her mouth and wails out meaningful lyrics, but unfortunately, I don’t feel like she does that often. This track is yet another that she uses profanity and obscene language that I just don’t think does her talent justice.
8. Cheap Thrills (Sia feat. Sean Paul)- Even though Sia’s style is a bit weird, she has some serious pipes, and this is another example of her masterful lyrics and talent. I don’t necessary like watching her performances, but just listening to her music is always enjoyable.
9. I Took a Pill in Ibiza (Mike Posner)- I really appreciate the interesting rhythms and remixed sounds woven into the tune in a way that made me dance in my seat a little bit. Also, upon further listening, I found a lot of really impactful words that Posner shares in this song.
10. Don’t Mind (Kent Jones)- A new artist on the scene, Kent Jones is having a great success with this track, and even though I don’t like that type of music, I can respect his style.
11. 7 Years (Lukas Graham)- A song that’s more of a story than anyone, this tune had me enraptured and listening. I loved how Graham described his life through a series of his ages in which something serious or influential happened to him. I really appreciated him sharing his story in this song.
12. Just Like Fire (P!nk)- Written for the new Alice movie, this song is powerful and intense, just like everything the wonderful P!nk does. I love watching her perform this song with all the acrobatics, and I think her track is simply great.
13. Ride (Twenty-One Pilots)- This group’s alternative style is really interesting, and all its songs are different enough to give the group credibility. I like the whole vibe the band creates, and I don’t think it’s any wonder the band has been so popular.
14. Close (Nick Jonas feat. Tove Lo)- One of the most popular spring/summer songs, this track is a great first single of Jonas’s new album. I love the beat drop and the lyrics, and surprisingly, I like the combination of Nick and Tove Lo.
15. Dangerous Woman (Ariana Grande)- I love Ari’s new album, and this song is exactly why. Grande’s voice is one of the best of my generation, and I think her theme for the album is all about being powerful and beautiful. On a side note, did anyone see her episode of SNL?
16. Work (Rihanna feat. Drake)- I’m glad to see Rihanna, who I really respect and think is really talented, back on the charts. I missed her at the Grammys, where she had to cancel due to an illness. I hope we see more of her again soon.
17. H.O.L.Y. (Florida Georgia Line)- I think Florida Georgia Line is a great country duo, and this song is well put-together, and I (embarrassingly) like to sing along to it… loudly and badly. Of course, country music isn’t for everyone – like rap isn’t for me – so it’s a polarizing song.
18. Me Too (Meghan Trainor)- This confidence-boosting song is probably the best on Trainor’s album, and I love singing along to it. Trainor really is a great influence on young girls who need to work on their self-confidence, and I have a really strong love for her.
19. Love Yourself (Justin Bieber)- Although it seems that JB is subtweeting himself in this song because we all know (whether you love him or not) that he has a huge ego, and oftentimes, he comes off like a spoiled brat. And, that’s coming from a fan. Yet, if you get over that irony, this song is the realest thing to come out of Bieber ever.
20. Send My Love [To Your New Lover] (Adele)- Adele is the queen of the music industry right now – yes, move over Beyoncé – and this song is one of my favorites off of 25. The music video is well-edited and interesting, and I’m so excited for Adele’s success.
There are only two more days of Komments from Karly, which is bittersweet, but it’s been a great ride! Happy kommenting :)
