Yes it’s a cliche to pole to a song from 50 Shades Darker (Grey? Grai? Whatever, it’s technically from the “Darker” film anyway).
Cliches exist for a reason, and as shitty as these movies are, the soundtracks are pretty on point. Exhibit A is “Not Afraid Anymore” which is dark, moody, dangerous, and… hot.
Yes, I’m still listening to Journals, LET ME LIIIIIIVE.
Okay as much as I hated that Chrissy Teigen wedding song (but don’t get it twisted, I love Chrissy)… I have a lot of love for O.G. John Legend.
Even his song in Lalaland was good? (And lawd knows I have as much hate for that movie as for the Chrissy Teigen wedding song).
P.D.A. (We Just Don’t Care)
Sexy, happy, fun, upbeat… a great feelgood freestyle song.
I mean come on. Same as above. Fun, cute, sessy… you know the deal.
PS. Here’s John Legend without a shirt. YOU’RE WELCOME.
No one seems to ever know this song?!! But it’s so chill and sexy. It’s been on my playlist for a good 8 years now. We’re talking OG iPod Mini status.
Heaven Only Knows
Good upbeat lyrical fodder.
Overload (feat. Miguel)
Lyricallllll girl, get it. Love the raw, emotional quality of his voice here.
Marching into the Dark
Funky, lyrical… cool.
Fun warmup song! How good does Brandy sound on here?!
Open Your Eyes
I love his version of this, omg. (I love the original too, PS). This is lyrical all the way.
Am I missing anything??? Do you also hate “All of Me“? Seriously, fuck that song.
You may have seen me do a Pole’ography routine to this a few years ago (if you could make it out in the crappy light). It’s been on my playlist ever since and I just rediscovered it. #goosebumps
Shamelessly stealing this from my teacher Emily who plays this for freestyles in our floorwork class and it’s perrrrrrfect.
This song plays in all my flex classes and it took me SO long to track it down. This gives me such a hopeful adolescent feeling? Into it.
