I've been obsessed with about three songs this year so far: Justin Timberlake's "Strawberry Bubblegum", Solange's "Locked in Closets" and as of right now (like seriously, right now listening for probably the 98th time today) Mikky Ekko's "Pull Me Down".
"Pull Me Down" came out late last year and while I remember liking it upon hearing it, for some reason it didn't hit me like it hit me today. I wrote about Ekko earlier today on a local blog I created because he's from Nashville and is currently on Jessie Ware's tour which stopped here on Tuesday (incredible show by the way). You know how songs sometimes just grow on you? Well this song has grown on me, is permanently attached to me and basically we go together now. It is gorgeous and I am currently playing the snot out of it. I've been familiar with Mikky Ekko's music for years but a lot of you may have first heard of him on Rihanna's number one song "Stay" which he sings with her and also wrote.
