What we’re blasting in the workspace.
By Yuna Oh Yuna, how you make Malaysia proud! The songstress has worked with some of the biggest names in music and continues to do so with style. Her latest release,
Nocturnal, features producers like Tomas Barfod and Jeppe Kjellberg of Who Made Who, Grammy-winning Om’mas Keith, Pharrell Williams, Michael Einziger, and plenty more. We love “Falling” while “Mountains” and “Call Everyone” show off Yuna’s soulful vocals.
The biggest surprise for 2013? When Queen B dropped a 14-track visual album (she even had a music video for every single song) on iTunes without so much of a hint of it being in the works! Featuring Frank Ocean, husband Jay Z, and even baby Blue Ivy, every single track is as catchy as the next. The songs are revealing and raunchy but romantically so. It’s on this masterpiece that Beyoncé gives you an insight to her life as a wife and mother.
TRACES OF YOU By Anoushka Shankar
Anoushka Shankar, daughter of the late legendary Indian classical musician Ravi Shankar, pays tribute to her father with her seventh album, Traces of You. She approached half-sister Norah Jones to sing on “The Sun Won’t Set”, “Unsaid” and the album’s title track, “Traces of You”, which proved to be beautiful and heartfelt. Anoushka showcases her talent not only as a musician but also as a composer and songwriter.
