So here it is….My last mix of the year. I have to tell the truth..I’m not sorry to see 2009 go..
Here are my favorite tracks of 2009. Some hip hop..some R&B..a lot of Diva…I even provided my commentary!
Have a blessed and safe New Year and see you on the other side of 10 🙂
This week’s mix is some of the best of Timberland. Timberland is one of the best R&B producers I know. Yeah, I know he does rap too but his hiphop beats always appeals to these R&B ears of mine. He has the ability to make the hardest MCs sound danceable! Timberland is a genius. His beats always leave you slightly off kilter, slightly off beat with enough break for grinding. Yeah…I spent a lot of time grinding to Tim. Don’t let the lights go dim on some Aaliyah…don’t let the lights go dim and I owed somebody like Nas…Enough reminiscing…

Mellow May – This mix was requested by my best friend Tutu. Yeah she’s my best friend. Divaliscious is my sister and Tutu is my best friend. She requested this mix for her b’day back in April and although I was still going to class at Scratch, I put this together for her. I used some of songs I was listening to in April and may…with some of the songs i used for my final at the Scratch Academy…with some of the songs I heard during Tutu’s birthday weekend…
I Love R&B. I mean really really love it! The new artists coming out really don’t have that soul that I’m looking for…or the longevity factor…
Not John Legend!!!! Whether he’s singing about cheating on you, leaving you or loving you…his sultry, raspy growl will have you straining to get every last lick and lyric coming out of his mouth. Not to mention his piano skills which leave me absolutely breathless! ( and I thought only Prince could do that!LOL)
It’s my birthday this week so I guess I had to treat myself right? So for my Mixtape present to myself I compiled all of my John Legend favorites…i hope I included yours!
