Asian Discrimination Within the Music Industry

As someone who is a part of the Asian community and enjoys the different Asian cultures, it has been a tough time knowing that people are so cruel in this world. It has also been tough knowing that the celebrities I often turn to have been struggling, but still put on a happy face to make their fans smile. So for today’s post, I really wanted to talk about how Asian artists in the music industry have shared their story and spoken up about the #StopAsianHate movement.

My Spotify Playlists Were Robbed?

Imagine waking up one morning to find your playlists decreased by over 100 songs. Well, that was the case for thousands of International K-Pop fans, including myself. On March 1st, we woke up to the removal of over 100 songs by various Korean artists under the company of Kakao M – a company that runs the biggest streaming platform in Korea called Melon.

4 Genres of Music That Help With Studying

Midterm season has arrived and I know how difficult studying can get, especially when we are stuck at home where there are so many distractions around us. Having said this, I am here to suggest four different genres that you can listen to while studying.  Now, there is no scientific research that proves that genres like classical music or lo-fi music help improve studying skills but, after doing some research there are a lot of people who have seemed to study better with these genres.

Listening to My Followers Song Recommendations for 2 Hours

As a music lover, I constantly get song recommendations from friends that I tend to add to my playlist and forget about until days later! So, I decided to make a playlist curated by my Instagram followers song recommendations and to my surprise, the playlist was 4 minutes under 2 hours long! With all these songs, I listened to the full playlist and definitely found myself gravitating towards certain songs mainly in my fave genres of R&B, Indie-Pop/Rock and K-Pop.

Endlessly scrolling on TikTok for hours resulted in my head being a radio where I just had a bunch of songs stuck in my head on rotation. Personally, there are a lot of songs that were too cringey or too much for me on TikTok but there are a few songs that blew up on TikTok that I have found myself to be listening to regularly and outside of TikTok. The first song that I absolutely love even if it has been overplayed is… #1 Mariposa by Peach Tree Rascals Image Credit: Spotify You cannot listen to this song and […]

Staying Connected Through Music During Quarantine

2020 may be the worst year of your life, but at least we can rely on one great thing; music. On one end, musicians have been able to put out new music and even do virtual concerts during this pandemic. And on the other end, many fandoms have enjoyed staying connected to their favourite artists through their music. I have had the pleasure to be on both ends and it has been a great experience. For the last 7 years, I have been producing covers on YouTube but I never had a posting schedule until this year. Being at home […]
