I’m back with another edition of Must Listen Music Mondays. Here to share some of the music I’ve been loving.
Must Listen Music Mondays: Episode 3
There has been a lot of great music being released lately, so I decided to dedicate this list to some of those newest releases.
J. Cole is back with a new album, “4 Your Eyez Only”. There have been a lot of people waiting in anticipation for his return. Especially after going double platinum with no features with his 2014 album, “2014 Forest Hills Drive”. This song was one of the first song releases that preceded his latest album. I love the beat on this song because it reminds me of some of the 90’s rappers my dad listened to while I was growing up.
2. Redbone – Childish Gambino
I have loved Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, for a while now. He’s multi-talented and excels in every single area he taps into. Whether it’s as a musical artist, actor (who else loved Troy on Community), writer (you might be familiar with his work on 30 Rock), and show creator (if you have not checked out Atlanta, you are clearly missing out). The sound of his latest album, “Awaken, My Love!” has a funkadelic vibe that is really unlike anything else right now and I’m totally vibing with it.
Bruno Mars is great at creating fun songs that have everyone singing along as soon as it comes on. This time around it’s “24K Magic” from his latest album of the same title. I really like the 90s R&B vibe that his latest album has and this song is one of my favorites from it.
4. Deja Vu – Post Malone feat. Justin Bieber
I haven’t listened to many songs from Post Malone, but I really liked White Iverson. Both songs are on his debut studio album that recently released, “Stoney”. I love the melody on the song and it’s so soothing that I could just play it on repeat.
5. Party Favors – Tinashe
So, Tinashe is someone I’ve been resisting to like but finally had to admit how much I really like her music. I was trying not to like her too much because I’m pretty sure bae has a crush on her (am I the only one who does that haha?) but I think I like her almost as much as he does. We saw her perform live and I was mesmerized by her dance moves and she’s gorgeous. I love the sexy beat of this song from her latest album, “Nightride”.
