Fifth Harmony, Harmonizers, Mixers, 5SOSFam, and Directioners confession
I am literally never going to buy 5H’s music. Not because they’re bad, but their fans are such bullies just because I’m a Mixer. Even if I am a Directioner & part of the 5SOSFam before, the Mixer fandom still welcomed me with open arms and wished me & my idols all the best. Maybe I got the worst of 5H stans, but a huge majority of them act that way. Only some are not hostile to other fandoms.
Ah, summer. It means a lot of different things to different people, and while sunny skies, lazy days, road trips to the beach, and BBBQs are all good and well, I’d like to think it’s not really summer without a mixtape full of effervescent, feel-good jams. This year, we’re providing that exuberant soundtrack to blast on your stereo / phone / apple watch while you’re out making your summer memories. Click here to download this mix or listen via Spotify.
This is a big summer for me because it’s the first I’ll spend in my new Austin home and the increased temperatures, abundance of swimming options and outdoor festival scene here begs for a mixtape full of exuberant, sun-kissed summer jams. Wherever you spend your summer days (and summer nights!!) we hope its soundtracked by our 7th volume of Summer (Or What It Sounds Like).
