Now let’s get into the new music that I didn’t cover this week.
With all the police brutality happening across the country lately, there have been countless artists to voice their frustration through their music. There’s been Elle Varner’s, ‘One Love’; J. Cole, ‘Be Free’; Lauryn Hill, ‘Black Rage’; B.o.B., ‘New Black‘; and other celebrities that have shown their support via various social media outlets. T.I. has released a track titled ‘New National Anthem’. He teams up with Skylar Grey and gives his take on everything that’s going on and contradicting what we are told are rights as people opposed to the hand that’s actually dealt.
I absolutely love the track from beginning to end. I hope this makes the cut for his new album, just because. Take a listen below:
Switching gears, Tinashe has released a new single featuring A$AP Rocky, ‘Pretend’. This is much slower than her radio smash, ‘2 On’, but similar to her other track she’s teaming with another rapper. I’m not sure how this would do on urban radio, but it could make it’s way to like 92.3 or Z100. This track definitely show that her label doesn’t want to just keep her in the R&B box and trying to merge Pop into this project. I think the sound of ‘2 On’ was a great intro to her musicality, but we all know Pop wins in this day in age. I would like to hear more music from her without any hip hop features. Her debut album, Âquarius, will hit stores October 17th.
Check out the track below:
Teyana Taylor has released the visual to ‘Maybe’ off her long-awaited debut album, VII. The track features Pusha T and Yo Gotti. The video is like a comic strip as she’s in three different personas. The black curly hair is Teyana Taylor, the red hair is Jacqueline Mercury, and the platinum grey Marilyn Monroe hair is Greyla Greenhouse. Interesting visual she displayed.
I would love to hear a upbeat track from her with a bomb visual being that she’s an amazing dancer. Hopefully she’ll drop one before her album drops.Her debut is set to be released October 21st. via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam. Check out the video below:
Juicy J is back with another strip club track, ‘Low’, featuring Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby, and Young Thug. The video is what I would expect from Juicy. Girls dancing around this time they’re just dancing around cars and motorcycles. It wouldn’t be a Juicy video without some twerking. Check out the video below:
