Every Friday, we gather the best new tracks of the week for your listening pleasure.
Some fun stuff came out this week with Lil Yachty and 03 Greedo albums, and plenty of singles to go around.
Let’s jump into it.
Lil Yachty – “66” (ft. Trippie Red)
Lil Boat dropped Lil Boat 2 and it’s fire.
I can’t lie, it’d been kind of a worrisome run with some lackluster verses for the Quality Control signee since Yachty debuted with Lil Boat, but he’s back to his best on 2.
“66” with Trippie Redd is great.
Beach House – “Dive”
Baltimore ambient dream pop duo Beach House came through with another single off their upcoming album 7 and it’s beautiful.
“Dive” starts off slow but unfolds into a driving, swirling powerhouse, like a deep dive into water.
7 is due in May. I know, I don’t have the time to wait either.
03 Greedo -“If I Wasn’t Rappin'”
03 Greedo is one of the wildest rappers out right now.
On his highly anticipated The Wolf of Grape Street album, Greedo shows why people can’t get enough of his bizarre screech-rapping style. Dude is nice.
Young Fathers – “Wow”
Edinburgh, Scotland 3-piece Young Fathers released their third studio album Cocoa Sugar today.
Young Fathers have a pretty interesting sound, a mix of hip-hip, indie rock, and dance music. On “Wow”, there’s some serious TV On The Radio vibes.
This record is well worth a listen.
Jeremih – “Forever I’m Ready”
Chicago R&B crooner Jeremih dropped a little 4-track EP The Chocolate Box, full of some great intimate tunes for your weekend of lovin’.
The H-Town “Knockin’ Da Boots” sample on “Forever I’m Ready” is quite exceptional.
Vince Staples – “Get The Fuck Off My Dick”
We’re still only a couple of months into the year, but Vince Staples’ “Get The Fuck Off My Dick” is far and away the best song title of 2018. “GTFOMD” came complete with a GoFundMe page.
If Vince’s haters can fill the goal of $2 million, he’ll go away forever. Amazing.
Brodinski, Lil Reek – “Rock Out”
After releasing a collaborative mixtape with HoodRich Pablo Juan a couple weeks ago, French house producer Brodinski teams up with young (like really young) ATL rapper Lil Reek for the post-apocalyptic “Rock Out.”
I would like to be brutally murdered to this song. The video, directed by French director Kim Chapiron, is insane.
Wet – “There’s a Reason”
Brooklyn trio Wet’s easygoing but emotive sound made their debut album Don’t You one of the best pop releases of 2016.
Wet has much the same formula on “There’s a Reason”, it’s just some nice ass listening.
Sango – “Khlorine” (ft. Smino)
Soulection producer Sango enlists St. Louis rapper Smino for the smooth as hell “Khlorine.”
After “Sweet Holy Honey” with Xavier Omar a couple of weeks ago, Sango may be building up to a larger project.
Sango makes bops.
Anderson .Paak – “‘Til It’s Over”
The wonderful Anderson .Paak’s new song “‘Til It’s Over” first appeared in the new Apple advertisement for their HomePod product with FKA Twigs dancing along to Paak’s song.
The production is more glitchy and out there than the funky style .Paak is known for, but it’s a pretty exciting preview of what could be to come from the Cali crooner.
It's Friday. Avoid the bookings beloved.
