Black Summer Nights

I haven’t been able to post lately; the month of August was an eventful month. My friend was visiting from Saudi Arabia, so I was busy showing her around, I was also trying to soak up as much sun as I can get before the summer departs. So I spent most of my spare time outdoors.

I kicked off  August, by going to a  concert by one of my favorite artists, so far it’s been the highlight of my year. When I was 15, I also attended a concert by the same artist, I still remember the dress I wore, my fashion sense was a little questionable at the time. For those R&B old school lovers, I went to see Joe Thomas. Better known as just Joe. Here is a snippet from the concert.

If you know me in any capacity you probably know that I breathe music. Music is like food to my soul, when I hear a good song,  it moves something inside of me and I’m automatically transported to a beautiful mystical place.   Music replenishes your heart, it soothes your mind, it nourishes your soul, whether you are having a good or bad day it can alter your mood, it can let you escape . Unconsciously, when you turn on the radio and you are on your way to school or work,  a good song can help shape your day, it can boost your energy or it can help you relax when you’re feeling anxious.Ticket

I believe that one of the most powerful instruments that can help unite human being is music.   Have you heard a song in a different language  and instantly  felt a connection without even  understanding the words?  It is because  music is a universal language we can all speak.   When all fails, music will bring us together.

I probably know the lyrics to every R&B song out there (O.K. so,  I am exaggerating a bit) but I am definitely a music addict. I’m always jamming to something even when I am getting dressed and its 6 am. Maybe in my past life I might have been a musician or a DJ. Below I have compiled a list of my favorite summer jams and I also want to introduce you to some Arabic music, so I have posted  one of my favorite Arabic music videos, as of lately, I think it’s a pretty creative music video.
