No genre, no rules. Songs we love that you will too.
“No Dancing” // Knox Fortune: The first song on Knox Fortune’s new album Paradise, “No Dancing” creates a groovy contrast between upbeat drums and slow, basic chords. The Chicago native received great notoriety for his feature on Chance the Rapper’s hit, “All Night.”
“Sativa” // Jhene Aiko (ft. Swae Lee): The latest from R&B MVP Jhene Aiko, “Sativa” is one of the standout tracks off of her new project Trip. The track is smooth, with luscious harmonies projected by both Aiko and the versatile Swae Lee.
“Liger” // Young Thug, Carnage: In “Liger,” Young Thug preaches about his main mission in his career: to be different from everyone else. The track is a product of a 4-song EP released by EDM trap figurehead Carnage and Atlanta native Young Thug, a more chill (but not too chill) release for the duo.
“Dawsin’s Break” // Ty Dolla $ign (ft. Jeremih): Produced by hall of famer Mike Will Made It, “Dawsin’s Break” is a down-tempo, song that features the veteran Jeremih- it will be sure to have you nodding your head.
“24/7” // The Neighbourhood: After two years of stark inactivity, The Neighbourhood is back with highly anticipated, highly satisfying music. The Hard - EP features 5 tracks that sustain their west coast, independent story, but progress into some electronic elements they have yet to touch on. “24/7,” an up-tempo, lucious track, is the perfect example of just that.
“Bodak Yellow” // Cardi B (ft. Kodak Black): “Bodak Yellow,” one of the Summer’s biggest anthems, has been re-released, this time featuring a verse by the rapper tied in with the title, Kodak Black.
“end” // Jeremy Zucker: “end” is a dramatic, lyrical song from the New Jersey native Jeremy Zucker. His second release off of Republic Records, is a song that strongly showcases his brand as an artist.
“Good Old Days” // Macklemore (ft. Kesha): This past Friday, Macklemore put out his first solo album since 2005. Gemini highlights his great versatility and lyricism, and a strong list of features- “Good Old Days” is no exception. Kesha sings a passionate call to youth as Macklemore raps reminiscent and descriptive verses.
“A Different Way” // DJ Snake (ft. Lauv): Coming off an outstanding Summer, Lauv is teamed up with international superstar producer DJ Snake with a song ready for the club. The song features a dramatic, heartfelt vocal that leads into a groovy, reggaeton drop that definitely slaps.
“One Foot” // WALK THE MOON: WALK THE MOON is back with new music, and it’s irresistible. With electronic elements and catchy songwriting, packaged with the electric energy of Cincinnati band, this song is sure to move your feet. Expect to hear “One Foot” on the airwaves all semester.
“Hi Bich” // Bhad Bhabie: Back from Internet fame boasting a huge recording contract with Atlantic Records, the “cash-me-outside” girl is providing us some heat for our speakers. The ethical content? Questionable. The heat? Undeniable.
