Music Monday – Tori Kelly

Tori Kelly

I have been bopping away to the musical stylings of Tori Kelly recently and wanted to share some of my favourite songs with you guys. So, here goes:

This song, Unbreakable Smile, never fails to put a smile on my face! The tune itself just gets you moving, but if you really listen to the words, they have a great message that a lot of people (especially those in the lime-light) should really listen to. She is promising to stay strong and not become one of those singers who follows what she is told to do just to get more press/album sales/etc. And I especially like where she says “And baby who knows maybe I can sell out shows without taking off my clothes, God made me sexy I don’t care if only I know”, this is definitely something that everyone needs to hear – we don’t need to go around wearing little to no clothing to be sexy, we can be more gorgeous/handsome by wearing slightly more modest clothing.

You are sure to have a boogie to this one, I even dance a little sat at my desk at my day job when I listen to this one. Love it!

I like this song as well, Dear No One, because it has a great message like Unbreakable Smile. It’s about being okay with not having an other half, but not completely giving up hope that you’re going to be single forever. She sings “I’m done lookin’, for my future someone, Cause when the time is right, You’ll be here”. Yes, its leaving it up to ‘fate’ or whatever, but you often do find the person who is right for you out of the blue and when you least anticipate it, it’s not about searching for them.

I love Tori’s voice in this song, I feel it really showcases her voice. Have a listen to the power in some of her notes, and in contrast how gently she can sing some sections. True artist in my eyes.

I love when artists collaborate on songs, and this one with the mix of Tori and Ed Sheeran is just beautiful! A bit more acoustic than some of their songs, but it is a perfect blend for them.

 

I’m going to end this post with another collab that Tori Kelly has done, this time with Professor Green. This is a beautiful song, and I often have it on repeat. Have a listen for me, and just enjoy the contrast of Tori’s sweet voice with Prof Green’s rapping.
