Sky Box Sounds vol. 22 | Musical Year in Review 2015

In keeping with tradition, the time has finally arrived for the annual Musical Year in Review, where I summarize the year in music to the best of my ability. It's been a pleasure compiling these year end play list. When the music scene is as explosive as it has been, it's always hard to narrow down my favorites and never feels complete, but I've invested a lot of time and effort towards documenting the run down of the music I've been loving in 2015.

Let's begin with... 

Best Videos of 2015:

  1. WTF (Where They From) - Missy Elliot, Pharrell Williams 
    • Let me just put it out there and say the news of this particular collaboration made me incredibly happy. Both the song and the video were even more DOPE than I expected them to be.
