Here Is What Every Music Lover Should Watch On Netflix
Netflix is known for giving us something to do on our lazy weekdays and weekends. It’s is kind of like Lay’s potato chips: I betcha can’t watch just one. Who can blame us? With choices like Chewing Gum, Grace & Frankie, and The Seven Deadly Sins (those are original series by they way), it’s way too easy to fall in love with a new show. In addition to its original series, Netflix has a ton of options in case you find yourself mourning the loss of your 7 season escapade. If you want to watch something involving a tune or two, try these out:
Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids
If you remember in 2013, Justin TImberlake blessed us with his third album, The 20/20 Experience. After his decision to split from his boy band roots and start a solo career, he effortlessly crooned his way to our hearts. JT has blessed us with R&B hits since that day. This documentary lets viewers in on some behind the scenes footage on the last tour stop for the 20/20 Experience.
Pentatonix: On My Way Home
You may know Pentatonix from their popular covers of hit songs, their fun 6 Vine videos (RIP Vine), or their fantastic Christmas albums. They’re a Grammy award winning a capella group sings houses, theaters, and arenas all the way down. This documentary shows the ups and downs of being musical artists: tour struggles, creating and perfecting original songs, and conducting business with a team.
This movie swept audiences by storm summer 2015. It’s a coming of age story with nods to 90’s nostalgia and all avenues of black nerd culture. With help from well-known names like Rick Famuyiwa and Pharrell Williams, Dope is sure to ignite the music lover in you. If that’s not enough, big names like A$AP Rocky, Chanel Iman, Zoe Kravitz, and Kimberly Elise should reel you right in! Get it? Reel? *slaps knee*
The Get Down
If you’re a fan of disco, suspense, and shows about hip-hop then this show is for you. Baz Luhrmann does a great job of accurately depicting 1970’s NYC culture while telling the story of hip-hop’s rise to fame. It’s easy to fall in love with The Get Down Brothers while you sit on the edge of your seat to see what happens next. I binge watched both seasons in one sitting on their release date. Do yourself a favor and get into this one.
