Chaotic Reads | Audible Favorites

I have always been fond of reading, but as I’ve gotten older I have strayed away from actual books. I love the collection that I have that spans from my Harry Potter series to various motivational books and biographies/memoirs. I have found audiobooks very helpful. I listen to them throughout my work day and commute.

Empire Soundtrack

Empire_The-Soundtrack_FINALFox’s Empire has taken over and I’m clearly late to the party. In a little over two months, Empire has shut TV down on Wednesday nights and for those on Instagram the hashtags are always in full effect. I’ve caught up on the season and the two-hour finale airs tonight (3/18). In celebration of the finale and the success of the show, I wanted to share my favorites from the soundtrack.

The soundtrack was released last week (3/9) and features 18 tracks. It has topped the Billboard 200 surpassing Madonna ‘s latest, Rebel Heart. Its the first time a TV soundtrack has done this well since Glee had 3 top the charts in 2010. Of course Terrence Howard, Jussie Smolett (Jamal) and Yazz (Hakeem) are featured along with Jennifer Hudson, Estelle, Mary J. Blige, and others.

As for my favorites:

  • ‘Drip Drop’
  • ‘Good Enough’
  • ‘Conqueror’
  • ‘You’re So Beautiful’

‘Drip Drop’ is the track that really got me interested in the show. It’s so catchy and I find myself singing it random times of the day. I’m interested in seeing how the music will evolve over the next season and what other celeb will pop up.

Think Like a Man Too Soundtrack Tracklist

500_1401784801_think_like_a_man_too_91The soundtrack to Think Like a Man Too hits stores Tuesday, June 17th, and the movie hits theaters next Friday. This soundtrack has R&B queen, Mary J. Blige, all over it and from what I’ve heard thus far, I’ll  definitely be doing a ‘Top 5’. What I love about the concept of this soundtrack plus the original soundtrack is that it showcases one artist. The soundtrack for Think Like a Man featured John Legend’s track ‘Tonight (Best You Ever Had), but the rest of the album featured Future. This current soundtrack features songwriting from Pharrell, The-Dream, Jazmine Sullivan, and nearly a dozen others. Check out the track listing below and be sure to click links to hear what’s been released so far:

  1. A Night to Remember
  2. Vegas Nights‘ (feat. The-Dream)
  3. ‘Moment of Love’
  4. See That Boy Again‘ (feat. Pharrell Williams)
  5. ‘Wonderful’
  6. Kiss and Make Up
  7. ‘Cargo’
  8. Suitcase
  9. ‘I Want You’
  10. ‘Self Love’
  11. ‘Power Back’
  12. ‘All Fun and Games’
  13. ‘Better’
  14. Propose

From what I’ve heard I absolutely love this. Be on the lookout for a ‘My Top 5’ coming soon.
