Looking for a new vibe? Here’s the weekly UU finds.
Got Muscle // Goldlink feat. Peewee Longway & Wave IQ
7 Rings — Remix // Ariana Grande feat. 2 Chainz
In the past two months, Ariana Grande has pushed out two new albums, both of which bear her soul, in two completely different elements. The album “thank you, next” brings to life the attitude of a scorned young woman, finding her place within herself and her society. Grande released “7 Rings” as a single and with this remix we get a new taste of Ariana’s girl-power anthems. If you’re looking to change your accessories up, go straight to 7 Rings featuring 2 Chainz.
Locationships // TBN Cordae
Leisure // Elujay
Master P // Choker
Only a year ago, at the peak of 21, did Choker release his first album “Peak” from the confines of his mother’s basement. He has since put out “Honeybloom” and three EP’s — one of which was released this month. “Dog Candy,” Choker’s most recent production, was an experimental project of mixing weird chords together. Choker craftily combines the use of escalation and a time-keeping to put us on edge, but wait a minute — this song will put in an atmospheric dancing mood.
Roof // Rico Nasty
Rico Nasty, everyone’s favorite up-and-coming female rapper, released an attitude-filled anthem. The music video combines glitchy aesthetics with a sci-fi fantasy exemplifying that with this punk-like record, she’s still at the peak of being a highly-proclaimed artist in 2018.
Addicted 2 (Keep Cool Remix) // Vanjess feat. Bas
Vanjess, an angelic sister duo, uses sultry defined lyrics and bouncy instrumental to keep us wanting more. After putting out the original track “Addicted,” the pair employed rapper, Bas, to be featured on the “Addicted 2” track. With the usage of 90’s R&B elements, accompanied by lush lyrics, this song provides a certain level of nostalgia and yearning for 90’s rhythm and blues.
6’s to 9’s // Big Wild feat. Rationale
Talk // Khalid & Disclosure
La Vie En Rose // Lucy Dacus
Lucy Dacus employs her art pop genre to give this soulful classic an indie rock twist. Dacus reconfigures the song to capture both the French and English translations of the original — creating versatility for a song about love that’s sung in the language of love. This track was released just before Valentine’s Day, as this is one of many singles Dacus will be putting out that will capture important holidays within the calendar year.
One Call // Gunna
“One Call:” Gunna’s released single to tease his upcoming album “Drip or Drown 2.” Employed with instrumentals that invite an underwater experience, Gunna throws his rapid, freestyle verses to provide us with an experience of floating. His never-ending aqueous metaphor keeps us swimming for more and in expectation for his upcoming album.
Ready To Let Go // Cage The Elephant
Rendezvous // Miss Benny
Facts // Chantel Jeffries feat. YG, Rich The Kid & BIA
