Try a new genre

Music speaks

I love music. I don’t care who it comes from; if it’s good, it’s good.

If you are nodding your head in agreement in the glow of your computer screen then listen to Kendrick Lamar’s new album right meow.

Will the boss yell at me for promoting a rapper?  Maybe ….  But alternative music is literally the alternative sound to a regular genre and he has U2 featured on a track called ‘XXX’ and it’s pretty fire, so I’ll consider that cross over the basis for arguing why his new album is so relevant and why our audience would care.

Listen to ‘Humble’ and tell me those lyrics aren’t delivering a strong message about owning your uniqueness and speaking up when fake people push their agenda’s

The entire album is reminiscent of the protesting U2,  the anti-commercialism pleas from Nirvana, the rebellious nature of Green Day – it’s just daymn good and why not expand your horizons a little.

Just a tiny bit.

Just to see how it feels.
