No genre, no rules. Songs we love that we think you will too.
“Yeah Right” / Vince Staples: With what may be both Vince Staples most experimental and most effective album to date, Big Fish Theory pushes boundaries lyrically and technically that other artists aren't even close to approaching. “Yeah Right,” produced by the legendary Flume, features a killer verse from King Kendrick and production that makes it seem as if Yeezus just barely tapped into industrial rap. You're going to want to blast this heater- but not too loud, it might break your speakers...seriously.
“Little of Your Love” / HAIM: It is honestly difficult to not enjoy this new HAIM song. The three sisters have yet to fail in putting together feel good records, and this is no compromise. It’s reminiscent of west coast pop-rock and calls for a day by the pool.
“Don't Choose” / dvsn: The Canadian duo certainly represent their loyalty to the OVO brand in this new song. Vocalist Daniel Daley mourns a relationship in shambles on the powerful new track.
“Signs” / Drake: In the More Life hit “Gyalchester,” Drizzy says, plain and simply, “I don't take naps.” Coming off a handful of platinum records and highly charting hits, the 6-God is back with a song that channels energy and influence from OVO label signee PARTYNEXTDOOR. This song is a sure club hit, perfect for any and all late nights to come.
“I Promise” / Radiohead: “I Promise” is one of a handful of unreleased songs from 1997’s OK Computer that has made its’ way to the public ear this month, via the legendary group's’ latest project OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997-2017. A compilation of reproduced, remastered, and unreleased songs, this album is just one of Radiohead’s countless and successful efforts to traverse time and stay relevant without changing their image and purpose. The regretful ballad calls for remorse and reflection over lost love.
“Start Over” / Imagine Dragons: Imagine Dragons has made a name for themselves with their innate ability to crossover between genres to create a variation of signature sounds. “Start Over,” a standout track from their recently released record Evolve, bears big percussion, catchy flute melodies, and a crooning Dan Reynolds asking for another shot at love.
“No Complaints” / Metro Boomin, Offset, & Drake: Migos, Metro, & Drake- what more can we ask for? Offset steps away from partners Takeoff & Quavo to deliver us a huge song that's all about success. This track is a banger, case and point.
“Ooo” / Croosh: If you haven't heard of him yet, you will soon; Croosh is an L.A. based rapper and singer that seamlessly blends rap/hip-hop with an easy-going California vibe. Ooo is one of his most promising tracks yet, a catchy, minimalist vibe.
“Don’t Quit” / DJ Khaled, Calvin Harris, & Travis Scott: Summer anthem specialists DJ Khaled and Calvin Harris have come together to create a song that is sure to play at every pool party for a very, very long time. While this may not be the Travis Scott we saw at Block Party just a couple of months ago, his energy is undeniable and is sure to make you move.
“I Like Me Better” / Lauv: “I Like Me Better” by up-and-comer Lauv is an uplifting song with a soft, contagious beat. The hook “I like me better when I'm with you” is dangerously catchy, and calls for nothing but a good atmosphere.
