Our third student playlist of the year comes from Kylie Andrews.
1. Where are you from?
St Pete, FL
2. What year/what do you study?
3. Why do you like what you study?
SO many reasons. The main one is it makes you look at the world critically, question the things you take for granted, and expand your horizons.
4. What was the first album you bought?
ughhh, either the Jonas Brothers or Hannah Montana or Lil Wayne.
But as a kid it was mostly ABBA, Queen, Sir Mix-a-lot and that Jock Jams CD.
5. Who has most influenced your music taste and why?
My friends. All my friends listen to different genres and its through them that I am exposed to music I would not have found on my own, but also I just stalk them on Spotify etc. OH and Insecure, the playlist of all the songs played on the show.
6. What was the last song you listened to?
“Carried Away” by H.E.R.
7. Are there any new artists/tracks you have come across that you would recommend?
Yes, all on the playlist. I realised a few years ago that my music was comprised of a lot of men and not a ton of women featured unless it was pop. So I have been slowly changing that over the years, and it makes music so much more enjoyable when its an empowering female artist telling you that you are amazing the way you are.
8. Do you have an absolute favourite, go-to song that you listen to, and if so, what is it and why is it your favourite?
“You Rock my World” by Michael Jackson. It’s an amazing beat and just overall care-free/ happy song. It can make my good moods better and my bad moods go away.
