So I’ve been out of the loop for music of late, but two artists have come back on my (and the world’s) radar, Lady GaGa and JoJo. Both of them have been out of the spotlight for years. Lady Gaga hasn’t been seen since 2013 and JoJo hasn’t had a new single for almost a decade.
Lady Gaga’s newest single is called, “Til It Happens to You” about her story of being sexually assaulted. Just hearing her song, brought shivers to my skin. She’s an incredible artist and for her to speak her story ,I can only imagine how hard that must’ve been. But I think it sends a positive message to men and women alike that it can happen to anyone. What need from each other is to be more understanding, compassionate, and kind to one another. Have a listen and be prepared to think about life for a while after.
On a lighter note, JoJo has reemerged from a long hiatus, and she still sounds great. Three of her new songs have been released, and are totally worth hearing. They’ve moved away from the pop songs and more into a deep ballad about love. I love her choices for musical instruments and her vocals still blow me away.
So have some headphones ready!
