Music Mondays: Too Sweet, Feuds, and Ranking SNL Acts

 Back Again!

Hey, three times! This truly is a recurring segment and I should revisit some of my other segments that haven't popped up for a bit as this one is doing pretty well!

Music Info and Opinions

Hozier's song, "Take Me to Church," was alright but kind of grated on my nerves after awhile because of how dramatic and over-the-top it could get. That said, his new hit single, "Too Sweet," is really catchy and I like hearing it anytime the ditty pops on the radio.

Billie Eilish dropped her newest LP, "Hit Me Hard and Soft," to a lot of positive reviews. I used to not like her music then came around on it a good deal. I'll give the newest album a listen.

Vince Staples just announced a new album titled, "Dark Times," is on the way. Staples is a talented guy so I'm excited!

Kendrick Lamar and Drake had quite the feud, but I think we can all agree after songs like, "Euphoria," "Meet the Garhams," and, "Not Like Us," that Kendrick won. It seems apparent Drake is ready to move on from this (understandably after the licks he ended up taking) and Lamar has some top streaming hits from the whole fiasco.

I previously mentioned enjoying some K-Pop tunes, and another that's been in heavy rotation on my playlist is, "Magnetic," by the group, "Illit." It's extremely fast-paced, poppy, and catchy.

Lastly, "Saturday Night Live," just finished its 49th season. NPR has rated all the music acts from worst to best. I mostly agree with the list but would have ranked Bad Bunny a bit higher and not had Boygenuis as the best (they were solid, but not amazing).
