Jack White is the king of today’s music. No one is such a genius, and so creative like he is. He has already formed 3 bands, and is always collaborating with other musicians. He is always busy with projects, and still finds time to focus on his talen: playing the guitar and singing. And he never fails. He gets better and better in everything he is doing. Here is an example
Other Songs I like: Sixteen Saltines, Freedom at 21, Love is Blindness, Love Interruption, Blunderbuss,…

Jay-Z is like the King of all the rappers of our time. He is the best role model of today’s Hip Hop music. I first noticed him together with Linkin Park. He was one of the Hip Hop artists I liked a lot, since he was collaborating with one of my favorite bands. However, after that, he seemed to have gone for a few years, but returned soon again. And his albums kept getting better. Another collaboration album, Watch the Throne, is one of the best albums of the year 2011!!!! The King!!! Nothing to say against Jay-Z, guys. And now, an example in which you can also hear Jim Morrison’s voice <3
Other Songs I like: Izzo, Jigga that N***a, hola hovito, 99 Problems, Niggas in Paris (feat. Kanye West)…
3) Jhene Aiko:
Birth Name: Jhene Aiko Efuru Chilombo
Born: March 16, 1988. Los Angeles, California, USA
Genre(s): R&B, Soul
Discography: Sail Out (2013)
As you can see, she is quite a newcomer. And you also might have noticed that she is of mixed race since her name sounds somehow Japanese, but also African as well. Her father is Japanese obviously. And this mixed ethnicity makes itself felt not only at her good looks, but also voice. It is so wonderful! I want to get lost in it. And her lyrics are heartbreaking! Here is one example:
Other songs I like: The Worst, 3:16am, Drinking and Driving,…
So, we have finished another day of the challenge with a letter that contains my favorites of the favorites.
