“I Woke Up In a Car” by Something Corporate
“Time flies! This brings back those happy memories of seventh grade.”
“Cool for the Summer” by Demi Lovato
“I dig the ‘80s feel, and Demi is an inspiration. The girl can really sang!”
“Alright” by Kendrick Lamar
“It’s encouraging to hear a track where art imitates life. I can’t help but blast it as loud as possible in my car when it comes on.”
“Anyway” by Tori Kelly
“I’m loving this girl anthem about being yourself, no matter what. I’ve known Tori for years and she has always been a star! I am so proud of her!”
“Good Thing” by Sage the Gemini
“My love’s song! It makes me smile and think of summer romance.”
“You Know You Like It” by DJ Snake & AlunaGeorge
“The breakdown in this song makes me want to dance around my room! I love to dance, so any song that inspires me to jump to my feet ends up on heavy rotation! It’s also great exercise and you can’t help but feel exhilarated afterwards!”
“Right Here Right Now” by Jordin Sparks
“I am really proud of this song, and it’s also the title of my album. I really feel like I am coming into my own right here, right now! The song has a world feel and is my kind of sexy!”
