The Lion King: “Spirit” by Beyoncé

As you may already be aware, The Lion King has made headlines and has garnered great attention nationwide. As a blogger, I feel an inclination to address this hype not only because I have seen the news all over my feed these past weeks, but mostly because I feel as though I am seeing a merge of the mainstream pop culture and old time Disney. Sometimes I forget it is 2019, approaching 2020, so times are changing. When I was younger, celebrity icons and Disney were totally two separate entities, but now we see how celebrities are using their fame as a platform to further promote big brands such as Disney to bring its brand to new heights, or as I see it “revive” itself. Not to mention incorporating the representation of black culture, which I am all in for (don’t get me wrong). However, it’s hard to predict whether The Lion King would have had the same outcome if it were not for Beyonce, or whether Little Mermaid would have the same outcome if it were not for Halle Bailey. This piques my interest only because I hope this same social/ racial issue would also be addressed towards other cultures who are getting overshadowed in the mix in the notion of “black vs. white” (i.e. the asian community, etc.). While I am excited for this new movement of the century, I also anticipate it will pave the way for other cultures as well.

With all that said, the making of the video/ movie (& wardrobe) is absolutely stunning.

Never Knew Love Like This Before by Stephanie Mills

As someone growing up in today’s auto-tuned music, I miss the genuine wholesome vibes of old-school music. 80’s music back then was on a whole other level. This is the type of music I wish we can bring back today, but unfortunately many might see that it is not suited for today’s type of music. Music has changed so much, it makes me miss a time I wasn’t even born in. Here’s to bringing the good ol’ funk back.

♪ I never knew love like this before
Now I’m lonely never more
Since you came into my life
Cause I never knew love like this before
Opened my eyes
Cause I never knew love like this before
What a surprise ♪
Song Title: Never Knew Love Like This Before
Artist: Stephanie Mills
Release Date: June 26, 1989
Record Label: 20th Century - Fox Records

Singing Group, The Walls Group

The Walls Group is a singing group who, to my knowledge, have been in the game for a while (almost a decade) and I have mad respect for their hustle, grind, and gift. Ya’ll know how much I love soul music, and lately I’ve getting into gospel music. I love the idea of singing/ serving God through music and being able to touch others or get through to others through the gift of singing. In their interview with Terrell in his show Song Association On The Blue Wall, he asks the group “How do you know if God is real?” and his response that “Just the fact you have breathe in your lungs, that’s God; God is life” really struck a chord for me. As a little girl, I remember I always being fond of church choir that their new found presence within the music industry feels almost like nostalgia for me. The Walls Group, take a moment to check em out if you can and let me know what ya’ll thoughts are.

Peace & love.
