When life gives Yoncé lemons…

hello
When life gives Yoncé lemons…
She makes Lemonade!

By now you all know Beyoncé dropped “Lemonade” as her 6th solo album on April 23.
She dropped the visuals and album on Tidal and immediately this album was the only thing everyone was talking about! The surprise-factor & the dark undertone in the visuals/music and lyrics made lovers and haters speculate…
“Are Jay-Z and Beyoncé splitting up?” – “Did Jay-Z cheat on her?” –
“Has this anything to do with the fit Solange threw in the elevator?”
Personally I think B is just a smart businesswoman, because she always kept her personal life very private. Which for me means that this album is supposed to create fuss, make people speculate so that everyone wants to hear it. Even if you’re not a fan… pretty smart don’t you think? 😉

I for one am a big fan of Queen B so I was very excited to receive this album in my mailbox!
Thank you x 1000 sweethearts at Walkie Talkie! ❤
So about Lemonade; I really love this album!!!
I have it on repeat almost everyday since I got it, and I can’t get enough.

“You can taste the disonesty, it’s all over your breath”

“What’s worse, lookin’ jealous or crazy?”

“Who the fuck do you think I am? You ain’t married to no average b*tch boy!”

“Ten times out of nine, I know you’re lying”
Emotional breakdown (?) – songs:

“Dishes smashed on my counter from our last encounter”

“Go back to your sleep in your favorite spot just next to me”
– All Night
“Give you some time to prove that I can trust you again”
Nobody messes with Queen B – songs:

And that’s how you make Lemonade 😉 I can’t tell you which songs are my favorite because I love all of them! Each song has such strong lyrics and contribution to this album.
Anyway, it’s safe to say Beyoncé always remains Queen B. Whether these rumors about her and Jay-Z are true or not, she is a true powerwoman.
She’ll be performing these songs in her Formation Wold Tour, and she’s coming to Belgium as well!
Sadly enough I don’t have tickets to go 😦 so y’all better send me video’s or something 😉
I’ll be enjoying me another Lemonade… 😉

PS: Who has this album (and what do you think of it?) and/or is going to her concert?

can’t stop the feeling!

helloMy all-time favorite artist is back!
Justin Timberlake is a voice-actor in the new DreamWorks Animation’s “Trolls“.
Can’t stop the feeling is the soundtrack for this movie and already is a number one hit here in Belgium!
This song has the ultimate summer-vibe and makes you just want to dance, dance, dance 😉
I’m waking up happy every morning since this song came out, I just put it on repeat every morning when I wake up and while I get ready for work! #instanthappyvibes
Today the official music video came out and I’m already practicing that dance routine 😉

Thank you Justin, for making me smile and dance, dance, dance…
Because really… I can’t stop the feeling! 😉

As a bonus you should really watch this live performance of True Colors at the Cannes film festival.
Anna Kendrick, who’s also starring in Trolls, and Justin‘s performance is just mesmerizing!

 

Sia – This is acting

helloI think everyone knows Sia… or her music at least!
Sia is known for her amazing voice and not showing her face during performances.
She says it’s about the music and the feeling the music gives you, not about the artist itself.
And as much as I like to drool over Justin, Timberlake or Bieber (whatever you like 😉 ), I can understand what she means. She’s also a talented song-writer and wrote hits like Diamonds performed by Rihanna. Sia says she has seen what being a celebrity has done to other artists and that she wants to remain a certain sense of just being “normal”. By creating this mystery she can still go to the supermarket without people recognizing her.
Instead she created a brand. The blond wig is very recognizable and it can be used in many different ways… on an other woman, a man even a dog if it has to 😉
Kinda smart, don’t you think?

Shut up and dance with me!

hellolast Saturday I was invited to go to the Walk The Moon concert at Trix (Antwerp)!
“Oh don’t you dare look back, just keep your eyes on me, I said you’re holding back,
she said SHUT UP AND DANCE WITH ME!”

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had this song on repeat! 😀
So of course needless to say I was really excited about this invitation! To be honest I didn’t know any other songs of them… I decided I wanted to be surprised and so I didn’t go through YouTube researching. 😉

#SonyMusicSanta – Get Weird!

hello

This past holiday season Sony Music had something really fun in store for us bloggers!
#SonyMusicSanta was like an estafette, 30 albums were ready to be given away. But they weren’t just going to be handed out… One blogger got an album and had to choose one to give to another blogger, something like secret Santa 😉

Lucky me was surprised by the lovely miss Elfi de Bruyn from Glam At Heart!
She chose Little Mix – Get Weird for me, how did she now I LOVE Little Mix?!
I think the message behind this was pretty clear: get weird, stay weird 😉
I love Elfi and her happy vibes, she always manages to make me smile 🙂 So thanks again for this wonderful present babe!

the voice

hello

Yesterday was a really exciting day! I’ll tell you why 😉

My colleagues have signed me up for auditions for “The Voice”.
You can imagine my surprise when I opened my mailbox last week to find I had an invitation for the first audition-round for the new season!
They invited me to the Medialaan headquarters. I had to be there may 20th at 6 pm and I had to prepare a song. (duration: 60 sec)

For me this instantly meant: STRESS! 🙂 Of course I love to sing, and I would really want to make it to the blind auditions but… am I good enough? To find me a song to sing didn’t take really long. Not only do I love to sing, I also love to rap! (yeah that’s right : RAP! 😉 )
So I chose to do Billionaire by Bruno Mars ft. Travie McCoy.
This is one of my all time favorites: the perfect combination of both singing and rapping. And it’s a fun and happy song! I’ve been singing this one for a while now, and I kinda made my own rendition of Travie’s rap.

Of course it also meant: what am I going to wear? It were only first auditions, but I knew they would be taped and I wanted to look nice! (you never know if it maybe affects my audition 😉 ) I put some thought into it, and I decided to wear all black. Not also is this always a good choice, it’s also slimming… that’s always good, right? 😉
(the camera always adds 10 pounds they say… I can’t really afford that haha!)
I found this beautiful top at ZEB by Astrid Black Label, sleeveless and with a leather collar.
Simple yet fashionable!
I combined it with my black skinny jeans and of course my Chucks. Continue reading
