CAMILLE STORM PRES. THE PLAYLIST

the-playlist-1

Hey guys,  so as you guys may have noticed I’ve written extensively about #NuNairobi( the artistic revolution currently occurring in my city)- on this blog and on other publications as well. Well a few months ago I was approached with the idea to curate an event based on the #NuNairobi scene as it blows up and continues to manifest itself to the world . I was really skeptical because let’s be honest, I’m a lot of things but  I wasn’t an event organizer; but after a period of thought I decided to give it a go!

ALBUM REVIEW: THE WEEKND – BEAUTY BEHIND THE MADNESS

So I’m doing a first listen review for this. Which means basically I’m writing this as I listen to the album. I might start doing this more often because sometimes I’m just too lazy to describe everything in depth and I just wanna write like a fan!

Beauty Behind the Madness is The Weeknd’s sophomore album which is actually being released tomorrow(Aug 28) lol. I’m just always on top of things like that! The album has a powerful start with the stunning ballad , “Real life” which captures your heart immediately  with it’s sincere lyrics and aggressive beats.
