Need a new playlist now that the summer is winding down? Or to get you through that last week of your internship? Look no further.
“Charcoal Baby”// Blood Orange: Blood Orange has given us the perfect song to end the summer with. An emotional and powerful message paired with a beautifully smooth sound.
“Noid”// Yves Tumor: This track is the upbeat sound we didn’t know we needed. The song becomes more complex the longer you listen and it is different from anything you may have heard in a while.
“Imma Be”// Tatiana Hazel: Sung by the Chicago-born Mexican-American singer with an electric-blue mullet, this song will definitely make you feel better about the bad decisions you made this weekend.
“No Brainer”// Dj Khaled [ft. Justin Bieber. Chance the Rapper & Quavo]: If “I’m the One” was your summer jam last year, then this is just the reunion you’ve been looking for. Dj Khaled and the same team have released another summer bop, just as fun and catchy as we hoped.
“Light Me Up”// RL Grime (ft. Miguel & Julia Michaels): Just the beginning of this track will mesmerize you. We found your new favorite “ride in the car with the top down song,” with a beat drop that’ll make you want to keep it on repeat.
BLACK BALLOONS// Denzel Curry: This track on Curry’s album TA13OO is a laid back, funky tune emanating the perfect summer vibe.
“Hot Summer”// DJ Durel & Migos: What better way to get hyped up for the trio’s upcoming tour than a new summer classic? DJ Durel has been part of the Migos family for a while, but “Hot Summer” marks the first single where he’s credited as the lead artist.
Handgun// YG and A$AP Rocky: Despite the title, we can always count on A$AP Rocky to come through for us. YG’s new track featuring A$AP Rocky is here, alongside his new album, Stay Dangerous, so you know we’ll be listening.
1997 DIANA// BROCKHAMPTON: BROCKHAMPTON came out with a new track and we are HERE for it. This new song is just as amazing as we hoped and it’s only making us want more.
Whatthegirlmuthafuckinwannado// The Coup (ft. Janelle Monae): One of many from Boots Riley’s movie soundtrack “Sorry to Bother You,” this song features the one and only, Janelle Monae. With a mix of hip hop, indie rock and pop, what could be better than that?
