April 2013 Playlist

This is new monthly post that I thought would be nice to start up.
Call me weird or call me a genius, but I like to organize my playlists on iTunes by the month and year. I’m someone who tends to listen to the same couple of songs for a good while, and they usually tend to last a month. So last year I shifted from categorizing my playlists by genre, to monthly mixes that feature a variety of artists. And from now on, I’ll share it with you all. I hope that at least one song will please your ears, because I literally listen to everything so I should have a good variety! Not all songs are going to be brand new, or chart toppers, there will be some way back playbacks.

Now for April’s playlist:

I Want Crazy – Hunter Hayes

Alive – Krewella

Pretty Brown Eyes – Cody Simpson

Girls Love Beyonce – Drake

Man on the Moon – Phillip Phillips

Can’t Hold Us – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Ft. Ray Dalton)

This Is What It Feels Like – Armin van Buuren (Ft. Trevor Guthrie)

Let me know if you enjoyed any of the songs, and what music is on your current playlist! Always love listening to new artists! :)

MuchMusic VJ Search has a WILDE ending

On April 26, I covered the MuchMusic VJ Search finale live in Toronto. After an entire month that consisted of a crazy roadtrip and camping out in the Much headquarters, it all came to an end, with Montreal’s Chloe  Wilde claiming the coveted title of the newest Much VJ!

There’s nothing like experiencing such a heart stopping, nail-biting, edge of your seat moment in person. It was an extremely exciting time for Chloe who repeatedly said, “I feel like I’m in a dream” during the following moments after she won. She’ll definitely have to get use to this, because as host Lauren said, “Chloe’s life is going to change dramatically”.

You can check out my article on faze.ca for the full story and interviews with Chloe, her mentor Liz and the show’s host Lauren. But I’ll leave you with my favourite quote of the night from Liz Trinnear:

“When they said Chloe’s name, I relived all of the emotions I had when I won the VJ search. Because I know exactly what it means to be announced as the next MuchMusic VJ. It’s one of those things that change your world, but in all the best ways. Chloe’s worked so hard, showed us she’s professional, she’s sophisticated, yet so quirky and bubbly and great on air, she definitely deserves this. She took my advice but ultimately it was Chloe who got herself the job.”

Liz is such a sweetheart! In the meantime check out my photos from the exciting day:
