*To be honest, I was hoping to find more discoveries in August. I’m not disappointed with what I found, but I wanted to discover more.
Aladdin (2019 Remake)
*I literally have no words to describe how much I love this remake. Everyone made a big deal about Will Smith being the genie, but the ENTIRE cast was phenomenal. The chemistry between Aladdin and Jasmine was just… perfection. I will be the first one in line to buy this when it comes out on DVD.
Mariah and Bailey’s Hip Hop Dance on So You Think You Can Dance
*I’m pretty sure I’ve watched this dance ten times in a row… twice a day… since the day I watched this on TV. They performed the dance to “Tempo” by Lizzo ft. Missy Elliott, and it was so freaking GOOOD. You have to watch it, even if you don’t like dance.
Blue Raspberry Lemonade from Applebee’s
*I’m not technically supposed to have lemonade, but once I saw the picture of the blue drink on the Applebee’s menu, I had to get it. It comes with a piece of rainbow candy in it, and it tastes so good. It’s definitely packed with sugar, but what else would you expect from a drink with a piece of candy in it? Twelve out of ten recommend.
“Get Your Freak On” by Missy Elliott
*This isn’t a new discovery, but I re-fell in love with this song after watching her VMA performance. Can we take a moment to talk about her VMA performance? Highlight of the whole freaking show!! I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched it. If you haven’t seen it yet, here you go:
“Graduation” by benny blanco, Juice WRLD
*To be honest, the only reason I really liked this music video is because of the cameos and the captions that went with everyone’s cameos, especially the sped up clips. It was like a super fun word search or something.
