Music Collective: vol. 64 {Nice for What}

There are so many things I love about this song and its stellar visual component. With the fusion of Lauryn Hill's "Ex-Factor" and classic NOLA bounce, 'Nice for What' is a feel good song from start to finish. In typical Drake motive operation, he focused in on what is likely his largest demographic: women. Once again, all summer long Instagram will be oozing with Drake lyrics as captions. 

Directed by Karena Evans, this video spotlights some of Hollywood's most notable women, including a few of my personal role models, such as Yara Shahidi , Misty Copeland, Issa Rae, and Tracee Ellis-Ross. The other phenomenal figures featured in the video were as follows: Olivia Wilde, Letitia Wright, Zoe Saldana, Rashida Jones, Jourdan Dunn, Tiffany Haddish, Syd (from The Internet) Elizabeth and Victoria Lejonhjarta, Bria Vinaite, Emma Roberts, and Michelle Rodriguez. What better way to celebrate women worldwide than to hire someone who is a woman herself? Smart move, Aubrey...smart move.

Reminiscing on some of the best years of my life, Drake has always dropped feel good anthems just in time to show up on playlist curated especially for day parties and road trips. Naturally, the team behind him has found a way to tap into his audience extremely well. Whether it's a marketing ploy or not, every year since '07, Drake has given the ladies something to relate to. It's no mistake that his latest release, 'Nice for What' follows suit.

♡ In Love with: my life at the moment; peaceful, calm, creativity over-flowing, and drama/stress-free

♡ Working On: content for The Sky Box Suite; writing a business plan for my side hustle; filling out the FASFA + preparing myself to continue my education (again). There seems to be so much going on right now, but it honestly doesn't feel like chaos. I wouldn't trade what is happening in this moment for the world.

♡ Favorite Visual: I'm rarely able to capture a mood, but I believe I was able to do so quite beautifully in the photo below. I felt so vulnerable, so full of life and ideas, yet incredibly calm. I wanted to see if I could possibly translate that in a photo. Took a few shots, but I did it and loved it.

♡ Music [favorite sounds]:
  • Talk to Me - July 7
  • Django Jane - Janelle Monae
  • Love Lies - Khalid & Normani
  • I Like You - Childish Major ft. Dram & 6Lack

♡ Anticipating : the things I have lined up for the weekend in my attempt to be a little less anti-social, as well as what is about to take place circa August 2018. I've adapted the "move in silence" mantra for a while now, so I'm keeping things under wraps for the time being. Just know, many major things are on the way!

♡ Reading : Hustle: The Power to Charge Your Life with Money, Meaning, and Momentum by: Neil Patel, Patrick Vlaskovitz, and Jonas Koffler

♡ Watching: Spike Lee's 'She's Gotta Have It'

♡ Favorite Words: "...deep in my heart, the answer, it was in me / and I've made up my mind to define my own destiny..." -lyrics from 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill'

♡ Thinking about: the possibilities of the future and the opportunities that exist right now

Loving: who I am in this exact moment, knowing I'm only getting better. Also loving life at the moment, because life is good, even on days it could be better.

♡ Dreaming of: a creating a life that is both abundant and fulfilling; adventurous and balanced; moving intentionally, but still allowing life to unfold naturally
