WATCH IT | New Year Playlist: So Over You 2017

 

2017, we’re done with you. Don’t take it personally, but looking back just takes more energy than looking ahead. We’ve had our incredible moments with some real what-the-fresh-hell thrown in. And now, it’s time to make like Bernie in that iconic car burning scene from Waiting to Exhale, and let go. So we’ve put together a playlist of breakup songs by our favorite divas and their wise words—on rejection, regret, acceptance, perseverance, pride and and ultimately redemption—to help us walk into 2018 fiercely. 

MOMENTS | Best of: BAMIN’s Best Record of the Year Covers, Sam Smith “Stay With Me” Duet & Parody, Drake’s Mixtape x LP, Sergei Polunin x David LaChapelle x Hozier “Take Me To Church,” Future Islands x Collage

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

MOMENTS | Mash-up: Indulge Your Inner Romantic with Sam Smith & Mary J. Blige’s “Stay With Me” Duet, then Get Cynical with “Please Go Home” Parody

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

Pop-soul artist Sam Smith was nominated for six Grammy Awards and won four of them: Best New Artist, “Stay with Me” for Record of the YearSong of the Year, and In the Lonely Hour for Best Pop Vocal Album. In celebration of his well-deserved wins and because Valentine’s Day is coming up, we’re revisiting our favorite remixes of “Stay With Me.” Maybe you’ve got a sentimental heart, or maybe you’re more of a cynic—there’s a version of “Stay With Me” for every kind of romantic.
