Little Bit is from her 2008 album Youth Novels. It is about being in a “friends with benefits” relationship. As it says in this lyric “And for you I keep my legs apart, and forget about my tainted heart”  She doesn’t want to be the first to admit that she is falling in love with that person. Lykke acknowledges in this song that she is just having sex with this person while trying to have no feelings involved. Being interested in someone but afraid to say it first for the fear of rejection is relatable to many people.

This video Gunshot is a song about dealing with an addiction to the point where it kills you, an addiction from love. This breakup ballad finds an anguished Lykke Li longing to get her lover back. This is also a moment in a relationship where you’ve fucked up knowing that some things you can never take back and it’s just gone forever.

FIRST LOOK: SMOOTH RHYTHM

SMOOTH BABY

Smooth; adjective smoother, smoothest.

Defining the word Smooth can have many different meanings. It could mean being easy going, having a way with words, to be extremely cool or just completing everything down the line with finesse. Smooth Rhythm, a singer/musician and a #SANDLOTCREW member, was born and raised on the northwest side of Chicago. Watching him play his guitar certifies he has the qualities of being smooth and the rhythm he brings with his talent will make people move out their seat.

Listen above to Smooth latest song titled “Wait A Minute” produced by Eric “MachoBeatz” Camacho also an #SANDLOTCREW affiliate. In this song Smooth expresses how he sees this pretty lady at a lounge where he had to stop and get those digits before she preceded to leave out the door with her friends. Smooth also encourages his fellow Men on his SoundCloud page with this statement, “To all my dudes get your game on and talk to that lady…” As you can see he’s definitely not afraid.

As a musician Smooth is a Universal Artist. There is no one genre he attaches himself with, he does it all. From Hip-hop, Spanish, Reggae, to R&B , thinking outside the box is more of his mechanism. Smooth not only enjoys listening to all different types of music genres, he is open to working on collaborations with other artist as he progressing with his own music career.

Smooth is currently performing his titled song “I wanna love you” which is inspired by the hit song made by Bob Marley. This version is transformed into his own style and lyrics. Log on to Facebook and Click This to see a live performance.

Ladies get ready to throw your sexy panties to the stage. Per a previous conversation I had with Smooth Rhythm, his music is for everyone all over the world to listen to, nevertheless, he is a Ladies Man. Possibly there will be special moments when he may even grab a special lady out of her seat to sing and dance with him on stage. Wouldn’t that be a treat? Not only does he sing good but from the looks above he may even be good with his hands. Which could lead to why he plays the guitar so passionately.

What’s Coming Up Next for Smooth Rhythm

Smooth Rhythm is presently performing at different Open Mics around the city of Chicago. He is writing, recording, making music with other artist and gearing up for a music video for his song “Wait A Minute” which will be featured this Summer.
