It’s Friday. There’s new music. You know the deal. Let’s get you caught up to speed. I missed a week last week over the holidays so this will be a double dose of tunes for your head tops. Enjoy!
Chance the Rapper – My Own Thing (ft. Joey Purp)
Brand new Chance the Rapper? You bet. I don’t think I really need to type much when new Chance is released, other than go and listen to that shit so you’re not left out. “My Own Thing” features fellow Chicago native Joey Purp over top of that classic, happy-go-luck Chance The Rapper production.
Meek Mill – Going Bad (ft. Drake)
Drake and Meek beef equals squashed, right? I think so. Meek Mill drops Championships this Friday. With features from Cardi B, Fabolous, Ella Mai, Drake, this is another all-star cast of features for the Philly native.
Mark Ronson – Nothing Breaks Like a Heart (ft. Miley Cyrus)
Mark Ronson and Miley Cirus. After a successful summer of dropping singles with Diplo, the duo teamed up to come up with the mantra Silk City. Ronson is known to push the boundaries of his music and experiment with all sorts of sounds. Throw in a little 2018 Miley Cyrus and you have their newest single “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart”.
Travis Scott – Sicko Mode (Skrillex Remix)
Sicko Mode was the song of the summer this year by a landslide. I mean I’d be offended if this song wasn’t remixed. But who better to remix it than Skrillex, right? Right. Strap in for this one.
Benny Blanco – Better To Lie (ft. Jesse & Swae Lee)
Benny knocked it out of the park this past summer with the single “Eastside” featuring household names Khalid and Halsey. Will “Better to Lie” top that? I’m gonna go with probably not but this is still good enough for you throw on a playlist.
J.I.D – Westbrook (ft. A$AP Ferg)
I know I posted about J.I.D. on a previous FMR but his album deserves to get re-posted. Particularly because I absolutely love this track off the album. His flow and ability to fit the amount of words that he does on this beat is bananas.
KAYTRANADA – Nothin Like U (ft. Ty Dolla Sign)
KAYTRANADA, one of my favorite DJs out of Canada put a short EP with five tracks (two of those being instrumentals) that features Ty Dolla Sign and Shay Lia. You can expect vibrant, bouncy bass, as is standard from KAYTRA, on this short EP.
