music monday: unbreakable smile - tori kelly

official music video.

first off, can we take a moment to celebrate my being DONE SCHOOL FOREVERRRRRRRRR!!
let's be real - i'll sign myself back up for something at some point because i'm a masochist...
but yes, your girl wrote her final exam last friday and survived the nightmare that was 8 final exams in 9 days.
special shout out to whoever placed two finals back to back - one at 9:00 am followed by another at 11:30 am.

anywhooo, if you've been a follower of my blog, you'll know i love me some tori kelly.
(see herehere andddddddd here.)
i just find something about her so endearing and home girl can sannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng.

though she's released albums in the past, her first full fledged album drops this june.
if you've listened to the radio in the last little while, i'm sure you've heard "nobody love" by now.
it's a great song but my heart rejoiced the moment i head the first notes of the title track "unbreakable smile".

this song is basically tori's response to anyone who doubts that a wholesome girl, like herself, can hold her own in the world of half-dressed, tone deaf/auto-tuned singers with no integrity. 
the first time i listened to the track, i was getting straight lauryn hill vibes.
i also nearly dropped my phone a couple of times as some of the lines were just, simply put, fire.
"but baby who knows, maybe i can sell out shows without taking off my clothes.
God made me sexy, i don't care if only i know."

though the produced version is amazing, i'm a fan of tori when she sings her songs stripped down and unplugged (see below).

anyways, back to work i go.
don't let anyone break those smiles, y'all.



  1. I love tori kelly, this song is really good! And oh gosh i remember when i was at school and i finished i felt so bloody amazing!

  2. yes! I love me some TK as well! I follow her on SnapChat and she just seems like such a sweetheart, which makes me love her even more. Just raw talent, even untouched she has the voice of angels. I can't wait to hear her new album! xo
