In my ear: Valerie June, Lorde and Allie.

It’s been a while since I’ve done an “In my ear” post and that’s mainly because I haven’t been putting much effort into looking for new interesting artists. I’ve been consumed by commercially successful artists like Drake, Eminem and recently Beyonce. However I still love the “underdog”-using quotations since some of these underdogs now have…

Rih x We in JHB! (Diamonds World Tour)

Whitney Houston (Aug 9, 1963 – Feb 11, 2012)
