The Songs I Have On Repeat Right Now

Hello, my sweet friends!

It’s been almost 3 months since I’ve done a playlist post – and that’s way too long. I’ve been listening to music as much as I always do, and I’ve discovered some great tunes and artists.

This playlist is pretty all over the place, but that’s quite an accurate description of my musical taste. This playlist includes anything from hip hop, to flamenco, to reggaeton, to top 40 pop, to alternative rock, to rumba Catalana, to indie-folk. There are songs here in English, Spanish, Catalan, and Gallego. The release date of these records are as recent as this month, or as far back as 60 years ago. It’s an interesting medley, to say the least.

Here’s what I’ve been loving during the past few months.

March Playlist


This urban-flamenco powerhouse has been my go-to these past few months. I’ve always loved flamenco, but Rosalía’s unique twist on the art form has sparked a new kind of enjoyment in the genre for me. I wrote about her a few weeks ago in my Rosalía’s Redefinition of Flamenco Is A Stunning Creative Endeavor post, so definitely go give that a read after this!

“Malamente” by Rosalía

“Que No Salga La Luna” by Rosalía

“Pienso En Tu Mirá” by Rosalía

Bagdad” by Rosalía

Di Mi Nombre” by Rosalía

A Ningún Hombre” by Rosalía

Brillo” by J Balvin feat. Rosalía


N.C. Palma

Not only in N.C. Palma an up-and-coming hip-hop artist with a great voice and super relatable lyrics, but he is a classmate of mine at UIUC! His 7001 EP is full of bangers, and definitely worth checking out. Here are my favorite tracks from the EP.

Icarus” by N.C. Palma

Champaign” by N.C. Palma

Down The Block” by N. C. Palma


Alfred García

I went to Alfred’s album signing in Madrid in December when he released his “1016″ album, and it was such a cool experience (it was my first time doing anything like that). This man is the definition of a person with a musician’s soul – he writes all of his songs, he sings in 3 languages, and he plays guitar, piano, drums, and trombone on the album. His lyrics are so heartfelt and genuine, and that’s no surprise based off of his public stances on topics like men in feminism, and the way that he supports all of his fellow OT alum and brings them on stage at all of his concerts. His album isn’t on Spotify in the US, so I listen to his music on YouTube or on the signed cd that I have from December. Only the first two songs listed here will be on the playlist, but the rest I will link you to the YouTube videos!

I’ve always been a fan of a good throwback. They just bring people together. One of the most hyped up crowds of people that I’ve ever seen was a few weeks ago at a party when “Spice Up Your Life” came on. I was definitely screaming every word without any shame.

If you’ve read any of my other music posts (see The Soundtrack Of 2018 In My LifeThe Songs That Empower Me Every Day, or 22 Fantastic Albums Worth Giving A Full Listen To if you haven’t), you’ll know that music is something that I turn to when I need strength, whether it be a pep-talk or a boost of energy.

Songs You Have To Scream At The Top Of Your Lungs

Honestly, who doesn’t love belting out their favorite tunes in the shower when they’re home alone? I do it way too often. Lately, I’ve had a couple of favorites. One that I s.c.r.e.a.m. is “Amorfoda,” because that one is such an anthem for when you get screwed over by someone. I’m considering writing a full post on that song. You know how even if you really can’t sing and know you’d absolutely never do it, you always have a song in mind that you’d sing to audition for The Voice? Mine is “La Llorona,” which is my go to shower song. I’ve also been absolutely obsessed with “Suncity,” lately

Ever since OT’s Eurovision gala to select the representative for Spain for this year, I’ve been loving the soundtrack of the songs that were candidates. I think that “La Venda” will represent Spain super well (I think we can definitely win this thing with my dude Miki), but I’ve still been jamming to some of the other songs that weren’t selected. Also, I hated on “Toy” a lot last year because I was salty that “Tu Canción” didn’t do as well as I had hoped (we’ve established that I love Alfred a ton), but the song is actually super catchy.

La Venda” by Miki Nuñez

Muérdeme” by María Villar

Todo Bien” by Marilia Monzón

Toy” by Netta
