With the New Year arriving tomorrow I could not leave you all without naming the rest of my top 10  songs that made my musical journey this year. If you missed part one check it out here.

1. Jazmine Sullivan – Mascara
When Jazmine Sullivan announced that she would be returning back to music, I couldn’t have been more excited. The Philly Songstress first came back on the scene with her Meek Mill, assisted single “Dumb,” Jazmine then continued to release music leading up to the release of her anticipated 3rd album. One song that really caught my attention that Jazmine Sullivan released was Mascara. While the song was inspired by how most women we see on instagram are consumed with the superficiality of their looks, Jazmine uses her sweet mesmerizing vocal range to make you even forget she’s preaching to young women in the song. Mascara is definitely one of my favorite songs on Jazmine’s 3rd LP Reality Show that will never get old.

2. Aleesia Cara- Here
Canada shows that it has no signs of stopping to produce some of today’s hottest new talent and Aleesia Cara definitely made her mark this year when she dropped the anti party anthem Here. While most people her age who love to go out and Turn up 24/7 Aleesia Cara was the voice for the people who rather enjoy a nice night at home rather than the club. What stood out most to me about this song was the fact that this young girl was able to create such a great song and not afraid of saying I rather stay home than go out, while we are used to hearing songs about turning up in the club and flossing our bands, it was great to finally hear somebody sing about something else for a change. The song was able to set Aleesia in the right direction in her career, as Here became her first top 10 single on the chart, and she even joined Taylor Swift onstage as a surprise guest at the 1989 World Tour in Tampa, Florida. If you enjoyed Here, you should definitely check out Four Pink Walls, Overdose and Outlaws.

3. The Weeknd – Go Tell Your Friends
Now I will be the first to admit I was not here for The Weeknd when I first heard about him in his mixtape days in my opinion his songs were long as hell and something you needed to be high for. Even when he announced his first major LP I still was not interested. As time moved on and The Weeknd’s sound began to evolve I became a little more interested in his music. Being the music lover that I am, I decided to check out The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind The Madness I was pleasantly surprised at how much I have grown to like The Weeknd’s music, and one song I will say is my favorite from his sophomore album is Go Tell Your Friends. Something about this Kanye West produced track embodies everything about the word smooth.

4. Tamar Braxton – If I Don’t Have You
With Love and War being such a huge success Tamar Braxton really had a lot of pressure when creating the follow up album. Tamar first tested her fans reaction when she released Let Me Know Featuring Future; which received a lukewarm response. Then a few months later Tamar came back stronger with her official lead single If I Don’t have You from her 3rd studio album Calling All Lovers. The song was a huge success for Tamar as it scored her another Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance. Tamar Braxton really put in a lot of hard work this year and it is definitely paying off.

5. Trey Songz – Slow Motion
One thing I can really appreciate from Trey Songz is that he will defiantly deliver a hot R&B song, which he did with his single Slow Motion, the lead single for his Re-released album Trigga. The song earned Trey another top 10 hit on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts coming in at #9. The song was a great summer sexy R&B song that had a lot of people saying, “We can take, we can take, we can take our time, baby in slow motion.”
