Now we’re in one of my favorite places! Have you ever felt homesick for a place you’ve never been? Well, I have and my heart belongs in England, mainly London! The music in this post is all over the place really, we have a lot of pop but in different ranges! All three artists have been featured on the Billboard Charts!
The first is Dido and I am REALLY hoping that I have not talked about her yet. My gut is telling me that I have either wanted to mention her or the possibly is this will be a repeat of an older post, who knows! I love Dido though! We tend to believe that this trend of chilled, dark, pop/alternative/indie music is new but it’s not and Dido should be the mother of it! After hearing her song “Thank You” and “White Flag” years ago, I have had this love of a somber vibe in music! She’s the reason why I’m obsessed with Banks! They have such similar sounds, it’s so good!
Second will probably shock you and/or make you remember the year 2004, whether or not that was a happy year for you is another thing altogether! Mis-Teeq is an all girl group consisting of Sabrina Washington, Alesha Dixon, and Su-Elise Nash. Does the song “Scandalous” ring any bells? It does for me, between my mom and I, we were obsessed with it. We tend to do that with girl groups for some odd reason! One movie that I love is Catwoman, I’m like the 1% of the population who loved it I guess! If I could find the soundtrack or score, I’d be a happy camper because they basically helped with it.
Last one is Dua Lipa, she’s our new artist! Of course, I did not think she was British until I looked her up and was amazed but was also very happy too because then I could include her with this year’s lineup since she’s been featuring practically everywhere! You might’ve saw her all over YouTube last year towards the summer, she was the featured artist on there! She’s recently released a new track with Miguel called “Lost In Your Light” but you might be more familiar on Martin Garrix newest single “Scared Of Being Lonely”. I’m still obsessed with this sucker!
So what do you think? I’m looking for more British music, so if you would like for me to talk about someone just let me know!
