Mariah is actually my favorite singer so of course she’s on the list! I love this song specifically because of just how honest and descriptive the lyrics are. I’ve always loved her writing style but on this song she really really outdid herself. The sultry and romantic feel of the song is just so amazing and she also produced it herself meaning this song is all Mariah. Her bringing in gangsta rap duo, Mobb Deep balances out the song perfectly. To me it’s one of her most underrated songs but I know there’s many who loved it the moment they heard it , just like me. But most of the songs from her 1997 LP “Butterfly” are literally classics anyway, that album was pure magic.
Mick Jenkins is a Chicago Emcee who received national attention last year with his 4th mixtape ‘The Water[s]’. The project contained heavy imagery of water, using it as a symbol for many different concepts and social issues. The Water[s] also impressed with it’s sonic consistency. Murky sub bass, heavy snare and high hats, and beautiful synths to add a watery atmosphere make up most of the tracklist. The project as a whole made the listener feel submerged in the deep, dark ocean.
Justin is back!!!! Oh man it’s been so long. For the past month we’ve been counting down the days to the release of his new single and it’s finally here. What Do You Mean? is the first single from Justin’s upcoming album which will be released later this year. I’ve been a belieber since I was 15 and my love for this talented Canadian has only been reaffirmed by this single.
So I’m doing a first listen review for this. Which means basically I’m writing this as I listen to the album. I might start doing this more often because sometimes I’m just too lazy to describe everything in depth and I just wanna write like a fan!
Beauty Behind the Madness is The Weeknd’s sophomore album which is actually being released tomorrow(Aug 28) lol. I’m just always on top of things like that! The album has a powerful start with the stunning ballad , “Real life” which captures your heart immediately with it’s sincere lyrics and aggressive beats.
Just in case y’all didn’t know ,the best music isn’t on your radio, it’s on SOUNDCLOUD. When you hear Australian rapper you might automatically think about Iggy Azalea, but fuck that. There’s some youngins coming out of Australia with mad bars and one of them is BARO. The 18 year old rapper impressed me with his blunt lyrics and the gorgeous vibe that his music carries.
It’s a groove ting.
