  1. Nice choices, Stevenson! I also love Bruno Mars and Drake. A number of my friends are huge Drake fans because he was born and raised in Canada. He actually grew up not far from where my mom grew up. It's a small world, isn't it?!

    I really like that both artists write most of their own music and that they usually tour their new albums. It's nice to see them perform their music to a live studio audience. Do you enjoy going to concerts or watching live streams of festivals? I am actually planning to go to the WOMAD festival this year. It's in New Plymouth and there is a ska band coming from the UK that my partner (Andy) loves. They are called the 'Specials.'

    Nice work with your blog. I like the in-depth descriptions that you provided of Drake and Bruno's backgrounds along with your rationale for the choice of Justin Bieber songs. A number of people also chose 'Sorry' as their #1 song. It is my #1 as well because it is choreographed by a New Zealander from South Auckland named Parris Goebel. She's really making a name for herself in Hollywood. Cool 'eh?!
