I have lived through and seen plenty of hurricanes in my 28 years on this planet. The destruction that these storm systems can leave behind is remarkable. Being in the United States for the past 7 years during the height of the Atlantic hurricane season. It has been easy for me to ignore the paths of named storms. Unless they were on their way to Bermuda of course.
Earlier this week Irma became the most catastrophic named storm to date. She wrecked havoc on lands of my Caribbean brothers and sisters. To those of Barbuda, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin, Anguilla and the Virgin Islands – you are in my prayers.
With limited connectivity and power for a mere 12 hours, I attempted to get updates on Irma via social media. Let’s say the enemy knows when and where to attack your spirit. It was a mere 5 minutes before I was reading complaints from Georgians about being without power.
I have been trying to find a way to talk about my 2017 vision board. Then BAE dropped her debut album, SweetSexySavage! And there it was. A way for me to talk about my 2017 vision board and do an album review on SweetSexySavage. #WINNING
My first official blog was then1989. It was a blog where I wrote about my love of Caribbean music. I had some personal posts on there, as well. All the personal posts now live here on T2K.com. But the music blog posts are in an XML document waiting to be loaded to my music blog. If I ever relaunch one!
Full disclosure. This blog post will not be your typical music review. I will not break down the nuances of the album, name drop producers. Nor will I even describe any of Kehlani’s visuals to you. I will link where appropriate.
But, in this blog post, I share my vision for 2017 and how Kehlani’s debut album speaks to it! If you are looking for a traditional album review of SweetSexySavage. I would recommend you read this post.
Now, let’s get to MY post!
