Let’s have a conversation…..i’ll start first, the title, i’ve never been to one of these things before until today, i’ve heard about them, but never actually attended one, that was before I learned Alexz Johnson was hosting one around the afternoon time of earlier today, found that out last night before heading to sleep…..I don’t know if any of you have ever been to a listening party before, but the anticipation for it is….how can I describe it……it’s like a concert in a way, but not a concert……if you’ve never been to one before
To give you some insight on it, you’re pretty much listening to an artists album before it’s released!! Pretty cool actually makes you feel like you’re apart of something, even though you weren’t there to see the process for it, but it’s nice, I mean you’re being shown something that is like a secret, but also not a secret at the same time……does that make any sense!?
I don’t know, speaking of that, I didn’t even know Alexz finished an album, yet alone known it was going to be released really soon, next month to be exact, oh and did I mention it’s a day before my birthday!? No, well now we both know!! No, but that’s insane, I was going to write about the album, you know like review it, but I decided i’m actually going to wait until the album comes out to discuss my thoughts on it,
Even though i’ve already heard the songs, I haven’t quite been able to wrap my head around it just yet and also I just feel waiting until it comes out to review it will be better, instead of expressing about what songs are on the album, I have to really hear it to talk about it properly, plus I don’t want to ruin the big impact that the album has to it, so i’m going to respect it and wait until release date to truly express on it.
What I will say is that the listening party for the album was pretty great, again i’ve never joined one of those before, it’s crazy because I actually don’t like parties much, but I enjoyed this one, I mean I got to watch my favorite artist talk so deeply about her upcoming album and the back story of it, as well as listen to that album alongside her with of course a lot of other people, but beside that, it was a good day, I don’t know if I can express it any better than that…….there was so much to take in during the listen,
That’s why I won’t review it just yet, 1. because it’s still not out, 2. I need to re listen to it to actually grasp a thought on it and 3. I want to respect the album and everything that was poured into it!! Yes it’s for pre order now, but until I see it on Spotify or when I get the album, i’m not going to talk about it further than the fact that
I went to my very first listening party hosted by one of my all time favorite artists, I can guess you can say I saw her a third time!? I don’t count it, but I kinda do a little, it wasn’t a concert though, I mean she did sing a little something off her album, just a few lines, other than that I don’t think i’d really count it…..but yeah, it was fun, even though I didn’t say much in the chat, didn’t say anything at all actually…….but still I had a good time!!
The album sounded amazing, Alexz is probably one of the best people i’ve ever met, she’s funny and just full of personality, it’s great!! I’m looking forward to getting this album, once it’s released and then sharing my thoughts on it properly after i’ve had a re listen to it so…..yeah, that’s all I have, nothing else….sorry if this is quite long, I guess I had a bit to say, I hope you’re all doing well in this time and are staying safe and enjoying your day in whatever way you’re enjoying it!!
Have any of you ever been to a listening party before hosted by a favorite artists of yours!? If so, do you remember the first one you attended, what are your thoughts on them!?
All The Love ❤ ❤
