This month is about vacations, flight taking, train-catching. A wave of excitement surges through my body as I think of what’s to come. Birthday celebrations abroad, attending well-being events and a whole lot of self-care.
Every month has a soundtrack, October is no exception. A mix of genres, depending on what the mood requires. It’s time for celebration, upbeat, fast tempos and feel-good music is on the horizon. When it comes to music, what makes you feel confident, sexy and empowered? These three words are what I’m channelling this month, especially as I’m turning twenty-five.
Here’s a snippet of my October playlist. As it’s only the beginning of the month and knowing new releases are due to come out. I didn’t want to share too many singles. I’ll keep you updated about what I’m listening to this month. Simply follow me on Instagram and Twitter.
Music has the ability to increase our confidence, excitement and playfulness. We play music whilst getting ready, before an important event and to uplift our mood. Marketing suggests sex sells; can you guess what subject matter these artists are speaking about?
- South of the Border (feat. Camila Cabello & Cardi B) – Ed Sheeran
- Be Honest (feat. Burna Boy) – Jorja Smith
- Good Love (feat. Tory Lanez) – Nafe Smalls
- Shameless – Camila Cabello
When I need feel-good vibes, afrobeats is my first choice. The instrumentals instantly make me want to dance around the house. It’s the type of music that you can’t help but blast through your speakers. It doesn’t get better than that. The popular artists I tend to turn to are Wizkid, Burna Boy and Reekado Banks.
- Joro – Wizkid
- Give Dem – Yemi Alada
- Ifesinachi – DNA
- Hit (feat. Tekno & Teni) – Krizbeatz
I’m close to my roots, I’ll always represent my culture. Whether that’s through styling choices or playlist selection. No matter the subject matter, Punjabi music has a way of uplifting whilst sharing its message. Tommy and Muchh are light-hearted songs about style. In comparison to Sat Sri Akal and I Think Delhi, where they’re sharing their dilemmas in love.
- Sat Sri Akal – G Sidhu
- I Think Delhi – The Landers
- Tommy – Raj Ranjodh
- Muchh – Diljit Dosanjh
And after all of that, no place does it like my home, so take me back to London. Before you leave, don’t forget to share on Pinterest. Continue the conversation by letting me know what’s on your October playlist.
