Last week I picked three songs from Tyler Creator’s “Igor” album and I have a new favourite. “New Magic Wand” feat. Santigold & A$AP Rocky is hypnotising and erratically produced. It matches the song’s subject matter, making it a perfect example of Tyler’s artistry.
J. Cole continues with his winning streak with features on two fire songs: “The London” by Young Thug that also features Travis Scott and “Purple Emoji” by Ty Dolla $ign. I love both songs, even though I feel like I need a small break from Travis Scott (lol). Also, I’m disappointed that Ty’s lead single is so short & doesn’t actually feature very much of him. Side note: Even though Cole is collaborating with a variety of rappers now, I never thought he’d ever work with Young Thug. It was a nice surprise & I can’t wait to see if any other unexpected features drop this year.
Emotional Oranges are next up this year & I first heard about them via Rory from The Joe Budden Podcast. The mysterious duo are making waves, especially after dropping their debut project “The Juice: Vol. 1”. The project has a mellow sound that reminds me of 90s R&B and “Built That Way” is a pure example of that.
