GIMMELUV MIXFebruary 14, 2016 by gimmemar
Can’t love anyone or give love until you really love yourself.
I woke up today and decided to mix this compilation of love songs for Valentines Day. No particular order – just things I felt a vibe for. Everything from soul/R&B to disco/house and some rap too. New and old.
Shout out to ASAP FERG’s beauty intro (taken from his interview with NPR Microphone check . I love what he said. Be you, love you. Originally, I had this audio clip of A$AP FERG and I didn’t quite know where I could use it. Then, Valentines Day came along and I decided to record a mix. Then, Kanye’s THE LIFE OF PABLO dropped, and I had to wait until he released all his music to record my shit. I love the cover art – straight to the point – kind of like Drake’s “Nothing Was the Same” by Jim Joe. Anyway, I was inspired by the cover obviously.
The theme of this mix is about loving yourself. This world is filled with confusing standards that shouldn’t mean shit to you.
Let’s just have fun, enjoy and love ourselves.
