You Need These Five Artists on Your Playlists This June
This year, the month of June may be confusing for some or most of you. Some of you may have already just ended your classes, while others may still may still be following the same academic calendar. Whatever your situation may be, updating your playlists is necessary so it can keep up with whatever activity you're busy with. If you want to update your playlists with something you'll surely love, go over this list first. We're sure you'd love these female artists on your music players.
1 Emily Kinney
You know her as Beth Greene from AMC's hit TV series The Walking Dead, but did you know that Emily is also a profesh singer and songwriter? In the same year that she scored the role on TWD, Emily also released her debut EP Toothbrush. She's shown her singing skills on the show sometimes too along with actress Lauren Cohan by singing the Scottish song "The Parting Glass." In 2013, she released her second EP Expired Love.
2 Mollee Gray
Why does she look so familiar? It's because you've seen her on the Disney Channel original film Teen Beach Movie. She's reprising her role as Giggles in the sequel set for release this year, too. Mollee is a triple threat—she can sing, dance, and act—but tells us that it'll be difficult for her to choose if she only needs to do one. "I love them all in very different ways," she said. "Right now, my acting career is taking off more than my music, so I am focused on that right now. But I am still writing everyday and taking dance classes when I have free time!" So brace yourselves because after releasing two singles, Mollee will be giving us more of her music soon.
This trio of wonderful ladies from Brisbane, Australia are relatively new to the music scene but their songs are guaranteed to make you want to just sit back and relax after a long busy day with your books. Give their charming music a spin on your way home, especially their single "Can't Get You Off My Mind" from their debut album In Your Arms I Found My Secret that's set for release this month.
4 Rabbit Island
Amber Fresh and the gang, collectively known as Rabbit Island, will surely make you want to not take things seriously. Their kind of music is dreamy and relaxing and will make you reminisce those times when you're out on a trip to the mountains or the beach. Make sure to have your own copy of Rabbit Island's album O God, Come Quick which includes one of their popular tracks "My Own Private."
5 Asia Monet Ray
This 9-year-old performer has already a lot going for her. She's an actress, dancer, singer, and TV personality. Did you know she's had her very own relaity TV series called Raising Asia? But in case she looks super familiar, you might have already seen her on Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition where she made it to the top three as well as Dance Moms. Plus, we're super proud of her because she's got Filipino blood running through her veins because her mom is part Filipina. If you want to make it as an artist just like her, she has these words for you: "My advice is pretty simple. Never give up! Believe in your dreams and yourself. Lastly, make sure you love what you do and work hard because hard work won't let you down."

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
