BTS “MIC DROP” Remix with Steve Aoki Featuring Desiigner

First off the remix beat that Steve created for perfectly complements the original beat. I am obsessed with it because it resembles an alarm sound presenting a warning to everyone that BTS is here! Then traditions to the original beat of “MIC DROP”. You can see the fusion between artists.

The Lyrics.

I was not prepared for more English lyrics. The boys are killing it and serving us a full course meal. We hear all the boys sing English verses. With the infusion of Korean words that we are used to singing. Though I must admit, I would catch myself singing the original Korean lyrics.

BTS “MIC DROP” Remix Music Video

The music video has everything the beat, the cinematography, the dancing, and killer lyrics. I am sorry, but this music video just set the bar so high for all music videos. I love the transition of each frame went with the beat.

Someone give the editor of this video a dang Oscar and a raise!

My overall opinion on “MIC DROP” Remix and music video.

BTS raised the bar so high! Not to let my fangirl self out but BTS is letting the haters know “yeah keep talking while we keep topping charts.” It’s proud moment to see BTS break boundaries and staying true to themselves.

Mic Drop was already a bop before the remix with their 90’s hip-hop influence. The mix of this beat just elevated even higher. Desiigners’ flow matches beat of the song. Though my favorite thing about this remix is they didn’t go full English lyrics. I love the Korean lyrics because that how I discovered them.

The music video was a bang! I also loved the symbolism. We have the representation of the Armies, the press, and burning the past. The choreography was slick and amazing. The part that stood out was when Yoongi is rapping his verse, and he is in the dark room with Jimin and Jungkook. That slow motion of Jimin and Jungkook, while Yoongi is rapping, is so furious. The whole visual of this music video is jaw-dropping.

Tell me what your favorite part of the music video was down below. Make sure to stream and buy “MIC DROP” Remix with Steve Okai featuring Desiigner .

Declan Mckenna “What Do You Think About the Car?” | Album Review

Declan Mckenna is an 18-year old that screams talent. At the age of 16, he already had a hit song “Brazil” that won awards. He released his first full album titled “What do you think about the car?”

“What do you think about the car?” overall album sound.

This album’s overall sound is more indie pop with a hint of techno sounds if that makes sense. Declan Mckenna established is signature sound where we can identify this is a Mckenna song. He stays very true to his style as he started, which is why we fans keep going for more. The melodies of his songs start out more clam then transform into these catchy pop tunes.

“What do you think about the car?” album overall message.

“What do you think about the car?” album message is very simple; it’s a message to the whole world. It’s awake up call to the world to start paying attention to the world problems from politics, relationships, corruption to friendships. It’s clear what kind of Mckenna wants to do, and that’s precisely what he should do.

Favorite songs from the album.

As you might know by now, my favorite songs honestly change my time and mood. However, there is one particular song that caught my attention has to be “Make me your queen.” I feel in love with the melody, but I stayed in love with it for its lyrics. They are a statement about being in an abusive relationship. He makes the statement that abusive relationships are about power and control with his lyrics. It’s something our generation needs to hear and prevent.

My other favorite songs have to be “Humongous” because of its melody transitions and amazing vocals. It’s a strong and bold way to start the album, not to mention the cute intro between him and his sister. “Brazil” is another favorite of mine because this song is simply a classic. I also appreciate “I am everyone else” for its catchy guitar solo and message about shady friends.

My overall opinion on “What do you think about the car?” album.

I give this album a four out five stars. This album isn’t just a beautifully composed album with catchy melodies but an album with a statement! There nothing more inspirational than hearing an artist take a stand to social problems like relationships, corruption, and politics. Declan Mckenna is on my list to see live one day. Nothing but pure talent.

My final thoughts about the Dirty Little Secret Eyeshadow Crayon.

I loved how easy it was to apply the Dirty Little Secret Eyeshadow Crayon. It’s one of those products you can just swipe on when you are in a hurry in the morning and leaving you looking like you spent hours on your makeup.

Another of my favorite features is that this eyeshadow crayon blends amazingly with other eyeshadows. If you are looking for an excellent base to blend other eyeshadows and had depth and color, this is it! You can blend it with neutral browns, red and even pinks.

PLUS this product is CRUELTY-FREE! and donates to important issues.

The only con about this product is that it did not last all day test. At the end of day, it started to just look as pigments as it did at the end of the day. You would have to retouch between the day.

Overall I would give the Dirty Little Secret Eyeshadow Crayon 3.5 out five stars. This product would make great stocking stuffers for the holidays or even little birthday gifts for your friends.
