Welcome back lovelies! The past week has been filled with a roller coaster of emotions. The world mourned Prince – who transitioned last Thursday, after bringing us decades of timeless music and an unmatched influence on pop culture. His death left a sour taste in the mouths of generations who have worshipped his music, but he leaves a legacy for today’s artists like Justin Timberlake and Miguel.
A couple days later, Beyoncé released her much anticipated visual album, #LEMONADE, reminding us of her own legacy she continues to wow us with. We talk about her perfectly crafted artistic videos that grabbed our attention the most.
The album was filled with an overflow of emotional expression – emotions that many Millennials are often too busy to address within themselves. We discuss how we each emotionally detox, and the importance of taking a moment to re-focus.
This is The Millennial Hour.

#TMH Tune of the Week: Prince & Beyonce // Purple Rain, The 46th Grammy Awards
As summer is wrapping up, I (Steph) decided to check one more thing off my bucket list and attend a full-fledged music festival. Here are my top five best, and worst, moments during my experience at Jay Z’s Made in America Festival 2015.
- WORST: Overcrowding.
Jay Z, you sold wayyyyy too many tickets to this event. There were entirely too many people, which took away from the experience.
- BEST: Getting almost front row views of The Weeknd’s performance.
It definitely took standing in the hot sun all day, but it was worth every minute.
- WORST: Smells.
Which for the most part were disgusting and unidentifiable.
- BEST: Meek Mill bringing his boo Nicki on stage.
From what I heard, Nicki was the best part of the Meek Mill performance.
- WORST: Food.
The food was horrible, but then again, it’s a festival soooooo I can’t complain too much.
- BEST: Staying in downtown Philly.
This was by far the best decision I could have made location-wise. Staying close to the venue and train station was a life saver after long festival days. Not to mention we got upgraded to a suite room!!
- WORST: The nightlife scene.
It was kinda weak. Even being in the heart of downtown Philly. But for all my Ohio State friends, I found another Insomnia Cookies!
- BEST: Making new friends.
When your 2 inches away from the people around you for 6+ hours, you’re bound to make a couple of friends! Here’s to all of you who sustained my armpit sweat.
1.WORST: Closing Headlining with The Weeknd rather than Beyoncé
Beyoncé should have ended the concert. Reason? Because she is Beyoncé. Who better to end a festival?
- BEST: BEYONCE!!
Her performance was flawless. All hail Queen Bey!! And not to mention her man Jay Z was supporting in the crowd.
