Need some new bops? Thanks to UU, you will listening to these hits on repeat!
Way to the Show // Solange
The fourth studio album from R&B artist Solange is more than a record, but an oath to the powerful memories that take us back home. The album titled, When I Get Home, explores the upbringing Solange experienced in the city she claims with pride, Houston. She claims to consider this album a return, not only to her native Houston, but to the spotlight as she has remained low-key since her previous album, A Seat at the Table. The complex, incomparable sounds mixed with her sultry voice leave listeners with a sense of understanding and homecoming.

What You Heard // Sonder
Even though this group has been gone for a while, they have picked up where they left off. Sonder consists of Grammy-nominated R&B singer, Brent Faiyaz, along with his two producer friends, Atu and Dpat. This trio knows how to get you deep in your bag and makes you reminisce on the love you never had. While they have only released one EP as a group, be sure to check out Faiyaz’s solo projects and what the group has in store.
Drunk // Dijon
Ashamed // Omar Apollo
Did you really think we weren’t going to include 2018 Juice Jam performer Omar Apollo? Yeah right. This psychedelically, soulful singer-songwriter from Indiana has the ability to take you on a trip with his lyrics and melodies. Apollo recently signed a global recording deal with AWAL and is set to embark on a 2019 world tour, so quit sleepin on him.
Girls Need Love (feat. Drake) // Summer Walker
Are you telling me that you’ve never listened to Summer Walker before? Get it together! The soulful, raw energy that springs out of her audio is refreshing for this generation of music lovers. Girl Need Love, which can be found on her latest album Last Day of Summer, pulls you into the absorbing, complex mind of a woman. While she may get you feeling emotions you try to shut off, Drake’s additional lyrics won’t let you stop thinking.
Good Time // Ocean Park Standoff
It’s Only Right // Wallows
Pull It Together // The Greeting Committee
wish you were gay // Billie Eilish
In a recent video, Eilish explains the meaning of the song saying, “I wrote this song about a guy that really was not interested in me and it made me feel horrible.” As a part of her new campaign for the single, Eilish announced that a portion of all proceeds from her BLOHSH apparel line will be donated to The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide and crisis prevention program for at-risk LGBTQ youth. Her illuminating ideas paired with her advocacy makes her anticipated album, worth the wait.
