TGIF: Cure Your Heartbreak with Tunes from Paloma Ford and Tayla Parx
Love is not a game.
Summer love is fun but fleeting and it seems like heartbreak is inevitable even for the most seasoned players. For this week’s music roundup we’ve curated music from women that are creating soundtracks for the everyday girl weaving her way through love’s maze. Paloma Ford leads this week’s list, dropping a seductive visual for her “Waves” track featuring Harlem heartthrob Dave East. With just one look East is enchanted by Ford and for the rest of the video, he is firmly under her sultry spell. If only she could teach us her ways.
Tayla Parx has released an anthem for women with their heads on straight. She sings a song of being distracted by someone that doesn’t live up to her standards. She confirms that her mother raised her better than that and she won’t fall victim to an undeserving love. “Mama Ain’t Raise No Bitch” is a final declaration of her independence.
a l l i e serenades the “broken-hearted babies” struggling to get their minds off of a love gone bad. Her “Bad Habits” track is a soulful story of an unsatisfying relationship retold to a slow groove. This song comes ahead of her debut album Nightshade, which is sure to be an experience. Ladies, heed the advice of this Toronto native.
