There have been a lot of new releases from some of my favorites recently. For this week’s Must Listen Music Mondays Episode 8, I’m sharing some hot new music releases.
There have been a lot of new music releases in 2017, just in the past week alone! There have been recent releases from Sampha, SZA, Syd, and more. I’m featuring some of my top pics of recent releases.
Must Listen Music Mondays Episode 8
1. Run Up – Major Lazer feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj
Major Lazer is a musical trio that produces electronic, dancehall, and reggae fusion music. The group consists of Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire. As I mentioned on a previous episode of Must Listen Music Mondays, I love PARTYNEXTDOOR. He’s definitely one of my favorite artists. I’m also a huge fan of Major Lazer and the songs they produce. So, when the two came together, it was a definite hit for me.
2. All About Me – Syd
Syd is an alternative R&B singer/songwriter, producer, DJ, and audio engineer. You might recognize her as the lead singer of the group The Internet, who were featured on a previous episode. All of the members of the group are releasing solo projects and this is the first single from her debut solo album, Fin. I just love her voice and sound, it has such a smooth and sexy vibe.
3. Drew Barrymore – SZA
I just mentioned anxiously awaiting new music from SZA and it seems like that wish was granted as she recently released a new album, Drew Barrymore. This song is the debut single from her new album.
4. Blood On Me – Sampha
Sampha is a British singer, songwriter, and producer. He has such a unique sound and soulful voice that I love. He could sing me lullabies to sleep anytime he wants. This song is on his latest album, Process.
5. I Think Of You – Jeremih feat. Chris Brown and Big Sean
Jeremih is a singer-songwriter from Chicago. You might know him from singing the hook on some of your favorite songs. I really like Jeremih and have seen him perform several times. He has so many hits! I’m sure this new one will be a hit too.
