You Won't Believe This Co-Headlining Tour

You may have seen it on social media, but there are two popular groups that are co-headlining a tour. What might those two groups be? Blink-182 and Lil Wayne. I had to check the date to make sure it wasn't an April Fool's joke, but let's dive into this.

Why this DOESN'T make ANY sense:
Need I say more? Lil Wayne and Blink-182 make completely different music. You have a rapper and then a rock/punk band. Besides Lil Wayne releasing Tha Carter V last year, both Lil Wayne and Blink-182 have been hiding in the shadows in recent years. I doubt this will be a major comeback for either of them, but it will be an interesting combination.

Why this DOES make sense:
Anyone that was born in the 90s and remembers late 90s/early 2000s music knows who these people are. You grew up on the music, you probably heard them on the radio, your friends might have talked about them, etc. If you ask anyone on the street who these people are, chances are they know who Lil Wayne and Blink-182 are.
Also, concerts don't always feature bands of the same genre. A lot of the opening acts usually differ from the genre of the headliner. Sometimes it might be a different subgenre and other times it might be a completely different genre (IE: space rock and vaporwave).

All in all, it will be interesting to see how this tour plans out. If you have the chance to go to one of the shows, let me know how it goes.

Thanks for visiting and remember to jam on!

The boy band who swept a lot of people off their feet back in 2017 are back with their fifth studio album, GINGER. Brockhampton is a boy band originally formed in San Marcos, Texas. The group eventually moved to Los Angeles and grew in popularity.

The first track off the album is NO HALO. Compared to all of the other Brockhampton albums, this is a mellow opener. It starts off with a guitar and high pitched vocals. Throughout the track, members of the group talk about their imperfections and some of the issues they have faced. The title of the track, NO HALO, probably refers to the fact that they aren't perfect people. Merlyn stood out most on this track since …

Album Review: Happiness Begins by Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers are a pop/rock band that formed back in 2005. After nearly a 6 year hiatus, they have released their fifth studio album, Happiness Begins.

Sucker was the first single released for the album. After hearing this song, I was actually excited about the Jonas Brothers reuniting. I was never a fan of them when I was in middle school and high school, but I knew I had to give this new album a listen. I actually really enjoyed the first track and it hooked me into the album right away. It's a high energy pop song, something that will definitely gather some air time on the radio. This is a typical love song, where this person loves someone else greatly, and they would do anything for them. The Jonas Brothers might be referring to their wives since all three of them are married.

Cool was the second single released for the album. This song wasn't one of my favorite when first released, but it is growing on me. It opens up with a slow acoustic guitar, and then a drum beat…

Bandana is a collaborative project between American rapper Freddie Gibbs and American producer Madlib. This is their second collaboration together, with PiƱata being the first project back in 2014. Judging by the album, these two artists work really well together and have dropped a solid album this year.

The first track is Obrigado and it is an introduction track. The first part is a small clip from Freddie Gibb's uncle. The second part took me some time to actually realize the speaker was speaking English. Obrigado is Portuguese for "thank you." The title of the track could also be a play on words of the Japanese word…
