Marvin's Room with Amanda Parris on CBC Radio

Check out Tanika Live at CBC Music.
What kind of posters did you put up in your room when you were younger? It could have been posters of different movies you liked, artists you admired and of course celebrity crushes who you dreamed would spot you one day in the crowd and realize that you were the one they had been waiting for. They adorned your walls, your lockers and your notebooks. I recently learned that today’s teenagers aren’t big on posters. Apparently they’ve replaced them with screen-savers, avatars, Tumblr pages and desktop wallpaper. I guess it’s more environmentally friendly, but still seems a little half-hearted if you ask me. 23-year old Bryson Tiller is the rising star of the trapsoul sound and there are countless Tumblr pages dedicated to him created by the thousands of teenage fans apparently daydreaming over him. Here he is with his hit single “Don’t.” (The song contains strong language)
Tanika Charles - Money
Melanie Fiona - Like I Love You
Drake f/ PartyNextDoor - With You
Bryson Tiller - Don’t
D’Angelo - Lady
Al Green - Tired of Being Alone
Tamia - Tell Me Who
The Internet f/ Kaytranada - Girl
Zaki Ibrahim - Lost in You
Jamila Woods - Blk Girl Soldier
Marvin Gaye - Inner City Blues
