On Replay - My Top 3

Photo Courtesy:

I am absolutely a music head! I LOVE music!!! It is the soundtrack to my life.  Luckily for me, my daughter, Cierra Brianna, aka "Ce Ce Momma" or "Princess Cierra," is probably more of a music buff than I'll ever be.  It's perfect because we share our musical loves and discoveries all the time, which is our little unique bonding thing.   Ya mean??!  And now that I think of it, my BFF, Shan, and I also have a musical thing going on!  Anyways, I tend to be a little obsessive (Aries trait) with songs and certain artists (aka Rick Ross, Kanye West and allllll dem) and replay the same songs over and over and over again when I'm loving it.  Here are my current top 3 songs, w/accompanying YouTube links and lyrics, I play (I can't sing but guess what, I don't care one bit.  Aries trait. I will squeal  sanggggg you right under the table without any guilt or shame) on repeat!! Let me know what you honeeyz and guys are listening to lately!! What's on your iPod, in your CD changer, etc..?? What artists are you digging on lately?  How do you feel about my top 3?? Did you fall in love or what!??

#1 Bruno Mars- It Will Rain

Ok so this song is totally blowing my mind right now!! I listened to it on repeat ALL day today. No exaggerating.  Not only can dude blow and got a cute little look going on (the dimples and the hair are adorable), but the lyrics to this song are crazy.  And it definitely does not hurt that the song is from the Twilight: Breaking Dawn soundtrack... OMG Like DUHHH!  Anywho,when I fall in love (LOLOL at the thought. Darn I'm mean and difficult at times), this is the kinda love I need to have!  Please watch the video (I included the official video and a video of him singing live and sounding better than the recording version...talent), listen to the song, and  check out the lyrics in the intro verse!! OMG! Powerful. That's that real for real all the way live kinda love! Right tho!

"If you ever leave me baby, leave some morphine at my door cause it would take a lot of medication to realize what we used to have, we don't have it anymore. 
There's no religion that could save me, no matter how long my knees are on the floor, ohhhhh.... 
So keep in mind all the sacrifices I'm making to keep you by my side and keep you by my side and keep you from walking out the door.
Cause there'll be no sunlight if I lose you baby; There'll be no clear skies If I lose you baby; Just like the clouds, my eyes will do the same if you walk away. Everyday it will rain, rain, rainnnnn..."

#2 Drake - Take a Shot For Me

Aside from the fact that Drizzy Drake is my boy (Cierra thinks she is literally a friend of his so I don't got nothing on that relationship) and his sophomore album, Take Care, is on repeat as  a collective whole, and therefore, all the songs are on repeat at this moment, especially "The Motto," "Look What You've Done," "Crew Love," and "The Ride" (that's like the whole album right???), the lyrics to "Take a Shot" are my absolute favorite and actually make me laugh to myself.  With that being said, I'll dedicate the intro verse to my "little homie" from the past b/c I know deep down inside despite all the fronting, this is how he's feeling.  Sorry dude.  Oh yea, and I had to adjust the lyrics (pronouns and such) to fit the fact that this is from me to my "little homie!" LOL.  Enjoy.  Oh, and take care! 

"I can see it in your eyes, you're angry.  Regret got sh#t on what you're feeling now.  Mad cause [she] aint like me. Oh you mad cause nobody ever did it like me.  All the care I would take, all the love that we made, now you're trying to find somebody to replace what I gave to you.  It's a shame you didn't keep it, [Johny], [Billy], I know you gon' hear this.  I'm the mannn.  Yeah I said it, [nigg@], don't you forget it!  
The way you walk, that's me.  The way you talk, that's me.  The way you got your hair [cut], did you forget that's me? And the voice in your ear, that's me.  Can't you see that I made it? Yeah I made it.  First I made you who you are, then I made it.... take a shot for me....oooooooh ooooohhhh!" 

#3 Frank Ocean - If I'm in Love

Frank Ocean got next!!! This young dude is killing it on the low but soon enough you will all hear and know what it's really hitting for.  Underground and real music heads already know and he has a cult following.  Right now, he's better known for being an amazing song writer (he wrote Beyonce's "Missing You" and a few other hot tracks out there) and very well known for being not only 1 of 2 collaborators on the Watch the Throne CD (ummm not only did he get a rare spot on the CD but he was on 3 different songs on the CD... amazing), but singing/writing  the best hook of 2011 "Sweet Baby Jesus...We Made it in Americaaaaaaa."  He's been releasing music via the web b/c he doesn't even have an album out as of yet.  He did release the single "Novacane" last summer but only to luke warm reviews and from what I understand, he had a deal to release a full album but it somehow got pushed.  Anyways, I'm in love with his song "If I'm In Love" (oh the irony!!) and Frank.  This particular song is an ode to some of the greatest musical romanticists of our time: John Legend, Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and Prince.  Enjoy! He's all over YouTube so be sure to check him out!


  1. My daughter who's name is Brianna aka breezy aka breezy Mac LOVES music just as much as I do, lately she has been into j cole HEAVY, im actually proud of her music choices (a keys, bobby Valentino, rihanna). Lately Drakes "practice" has been on repeat in my car on my iPod and on my iPhone o_o but I LOVE all music

    1. Hey honeey!! I'm cracking up at all your daughter's aliases! And of course I love that the fact that her name is Brianna, which is my daughter's middle name. She must be the cutest little thing! :-) My daughter finally accepted the fact that J.Cole is good enough to like (according to her, "he has a good heart"...not sure how she would know this but this is what she has concluded). She was having a hard time earlier on b/c she felt as though he was encroaching on Drake's territory and she was soooo not having that! LOL.

  2. Loved your looks as a Fashion Bomb and now I've fallen in love with your blog! As a recent college grad *proud smile*, I've been searching for a blog that will help me grow professionally & socially>>>>>> Milk and Honey is giving me life! Thankx for pushing balance, because it can be a struggle at times.

    Take a Shot for Me is constantly on repeat in my world <3 and I agree with everything you said about Frank Ocean. He's a hidden treasure in the music world, but I'm happy to see him get the credit he deserves. We can't forget about the fabulous Adele! I've been a fan since she was an "Artist to Know" on Vh1 lol!

    Keep up the Great Work!

    1. Hey Honeey!! Welcome to Milk and Honeeyz and congratulations on your recent graduation!! It's so exciting and scary all at the same time but you've positioned yourself to take over the world (yea, I think real extra and real so be sure to be more excited than scared!!! :-)

      I can not even begin to tell you my love for Adele. She has been one of my favorite since forever too!!! My daughter is beyond in love with Adele and she is in he #5 slot of my cd player and has never left. My daughter will not even allow the thought of it! Please keep coming back to visit us!!!
