Whilst driving home, we were listening to old songs from 2011 and so on. “Lord Knows” by Drake featuring Rick Ross came on and it took me back to late 2011 & early 2012. I was so young (still am), a recent graduate & figuring out life. I just love how music can take you to certain moments. Anyway, that song is one of my faves from Drake’s 2011 sophomore album “Take Care”. Produced by the legendary Just Blaze, it’s signature Just Blaze - loud, an anthem & unforgettable. Obviously Drake and Ross did the damn thing but that production is lit.
This made me think about another classic collaboration between these two rappers, which also features Chrisette Michele on the hook - “Aston Martin Music”. The song is on Ross’ 2010 “Teflon Don” album and was produced by the legendary Justice League. Last but not least, Cardi B just released her first single, “Press”, for her upcoming new album. We heard a snippet of this song via Cardi’s Instagram on 19.12.18 and I knew it would be banger; I was right! Cardi addresses the gossip blogs and drama that’s surrounded her over the past 12 months alone. She talks her shit all over this record and it’s lit. It’s definitely a good record to start the new promo run for her sophomore album and I can’t wait hear what’s coming next.
