This is the first song on my I Was Born for Thisplaylist! I remember hearing this when it was first released in 2016, when I was conceptualising IWBFT, and thinking – this is it. This is the exact sound of I Was Born for This. And while the lyrics don’t really reflect what happens in the book, some of the imagery used definitely draws comparisons to The Ark’s decadent, if somewhat tainted, lifestyle as international celebrities. “Valentino summers and wave runners”.
Today on the blog I welcome Alice Oseman with the start of her blog tour for “I Was Born For This”. As a special treat, Alice is posting a song a day that relate to this new book and they can then be compiled into one great, big YA playlist. As a bonus, each hosting blogger will add a song of their own to the list that they love or think is fitting too for this YA playlist. Double Bubble! I Was Born For This is out now and is published by Harper Collins.
First up is Alice with her choice:
Drug Dealers Anonymous – Pusha T and JAY Z
