Fire Tunes Of The Day: Travis Scott – SICKO MODE Ft. Drake & YG- CANT GET IN KANADA

Today’s Fire tune servings are from two of my favourite rappers out; Travis Scott & YG!

Travis Scott – SICKO MODE Ft. Drake

Travis Scott finally dropped his long-awaited 3rd studio album ASTROWORLD to rave reviews this Friday. The album’s currently slated to move 400,000-500,000 stateside, which gives an indication of the commercial success of the album. Sonically, it’s also a masterpiece in my opinion & deciding on a fire tune to feature from the 17-track album was a bit of a challenge but it just had to be Sicko Mode featuring the 6 god. The tune has three different elements to it starting with a Drake intro & ending with a Tay Keith laced beat providing the backdrop for Drizzy & Travis Scott to go back-to-back and obliterate the record! Listen to the album here & peep the fire tune below

 

YG – CANT GET IN KANADA

YG also finally released his 3rd studio album STAY DANGEROUS after dropping two classics in My Krazy Life & Still Brazy within the past 5 years. It’s safe to say the Compton native did not disappoint with this project & I expect it to continue to grow in me with every additional listen.  CANT GET IN KANADA is my current favourite hence why it’s today’s featured fire tune. Listen to the album here and listen to the fire tune below

Fire Tune Of The Day: Bas – Boca Raton Ft. A$AP Ferg

Dreamville artist Bas released his first single of the year earlier in the summer titled Boca Raton. The record features A$AP Ferg & it’s a fire tune by all indications. It’s shot straight to the top of my personal playlist and has gotten me excited for Bas’ next project, which will be his first since dropping his criminally underrated Too High To Riot album in 2016. Listen to the fire tune below

Fire Tunes Of The Month

I know, I know, I know! I have disrespected this blog as it’s been over a month since my last month but in my defence, I’ve been ridiculously busy and the greatest show on Earth was on (the World Cup). However, to make up for it, I’m dropping a mega bumper post featuring my fave tunes over the past month, which are essential for your playlists rotation. Due to the sheer volume of the featured songs, I’ll try to keep the background on each song to one or two sentences. Enjoy and my your ears be happy!

Drake – In My Feelings x Mob Ties

Drizzy released his 5th studio album Scorpion earlier in the summer. In My Feelings has turned out to be the summer smash, while Mob Ties is my personal fave from Side A! Enjoy

 

 

 

The Carters – APESHIT

Beyonce & Jay-Z surprisingly released a 10 track collaborative album EVERYTHING IS LOVE earlier in the summer. APESHIT is my undeniable favourite & a certified summer banger

 

 

Mura Masa & Octavian – Move Me

London producer Mura Masa & young London MC Octavian collaborated on this absolutely fire record a few weeks ago. Hearing it live at Lovebox cemented it for me & its shot straight to the top of my personal playlist

 

 

Ambush Buzzworl – Jumpy Remix Ft. Chip & Skepta

I peeped the original song off a tweet earlier in the summer & the remix has just taken it to another level. Skepta & Chip came through with a pair of fire 16s for the remix & I hope Ambush can capitalise on the momentum over the coming months

 

 

DJ Snake & Niniola – Maradona Riddim

French producer DJ Snake jumped on Niniola’s smash afrobeat record Maradona. I like this remix cause the primary elements of the original song remain but DJ Snake’s beat adds another element to the song that can easily translate to the dance floors on this side of the world

 

MHD – Bella Ft. Wizkid

French afrotrap superstar MHD joined forces with the original Nigerian superstar starboy Wizkid and the resulting song is glorious. Listen below

 

 

Internet – It Gets Better (With Time)

The Internet dropped their 2nd studio album Hive Mind just over a week ago & It Gets Better is one of my standout songs from the dope LP

 

Chance The Rapper – I Might Need Security

Chance The Rapper simultaneously released 4 singles for our ears just over a week ago. I believe all 4 songs are fire but the ‘fuck you’ sample on I Might Need Security takes the cake!

 

Steel Banglez – Hot Steppa Ft. Loski

UK super producer Steel Banglez dropped his latest bop featuring young drill MC Loski Hot Steppa just over a week ago

 

 

Vegedream – Ramenez La Coupe À La Maison

Vegedream’s ode to the French national team on their win in Russia where he mentions all 23 members of the squad. I honestly learned about this song primarily through Pogba & Kimpembe’s instagram towards the latter stages of the World Cup and its super catchy

 

 

Childish Gambino – Summertime Magic

Childish Gambino dropped of a two song Summer Pack LP just before his Lovebox headlining set including Summertime Magic , which is my favourite of the two records. Listen below

 

BROCKHAMPTON – 1999 WILDFIRE

All Indications point to a new BROCKHAMPTON LP release in the horizon as they’ve dropped back-to-back-to-back singles over the past 3 Fridays. 1999 WILDFIRE was the first of the 3 releases & I honestly love this song so much

 

 

Avelino – Boasy Ft. Not3s

I initially slept on this when it was released but its probably currently my favourite record of the summer excluding all the Drizzy bangers. Not3s delivers a fire hook & 16 as expected and Avelino also shines on this one

 

 

Headie One – This Week Ft. Yxng Bane

UK rapper Headie One released his mixtape The One Two just over a fortnight ago & its an impressive body of work. This Week featuring Yxng Bane is the standout record for me by a country mile

 

 

Kida Kudz – Issa Vibe Remix Ft. Burna Boy & Geko

Kida Kudz summer bop Issa Vibe received a timely remix featuring afrobeat superstar Burna Boy & Manchester rapper Geko. Enjoy the vibe below

 

Skepta & Wizkid – Energy (Far Away) 

Two titans of their respective genres Skepta & Wizkid released their 2nd collaborative single Energy (Stay Far Away) earlier in the summer and its already ringing off in the clubs all over the world as expected.

 

Future – 31 Days

Super Future surprisingly released BEASTMODE2 just over a fortnight ago & 31 DAYS is my standout off the tape, which was executive produced by Zaytoven

 

Not3s – Tuggyszn (Interlude)

UK rapper/singer Not3s has been on an unprecedented wave for the best part of 18 months culminating in the release of Take Notes 2 a fortnight ago. I love all 9 songs off the LP so choosing a feature song was a difficult one but Tuggyszn is a worthy choice

 

AJ Tracey & Not3s – Butterflies

I initially slept on this record when it dropped earlier in the summer even though it was from two of my favourite musicians out. Thankfully, i’ve come round to it and I now love the record! Listen to the bop below

 

 

Ella Mai – Boo’d Up Remix Ft. Nicki Minaj & Quavo

Ella Mai’s smash record Boo’d Up got a superstar remix earlier in the summer from Nicki Minaj & one of my favourites Quavo. Listen below

 

Zion B & Ramz – Movin’

Zion B & Ramz came through with this summer bop, which is impossible to get out of your head once you hear it

 

 

Hardy Caprio – Best Life Ft. One Acen

Hardy Caprio & One Acen are shooting 100% from the field when it comes to collaborations between the pair and Best Life keeps the record firmly intact

 

 

Christina Aguilera – Like I Do Ft. Goldlink

I didn’t see this particular collab coming but I’m here for it. Goldlink delivers a special 16, which takes the record to the next level. Enjoy below

 

Justin Timberlake – SoulMate

Justin Timberlake’s latest album dropped earlier this year & it surprisingly flopped. However, he’s already on his bounce back vibe and SoulMate is a great start

 

Jaden Smith – GHOST Ft. Christian Rich 

Jaden Smith continues to flourish as time goes by & GHOST adds to his collection of fire records. The beat on this is something else & his flow just takes it home!

 

 

2 Chainz – Bigger Than You Ft. Drake & Quavo

One of my favourite rappers of the past 5/6 years 2 Chainz dropped the lead single Bigger Than You featuring my fellow faves Drake & Quavo and its one hell of a bop! The song’s currently slightly slept on in my opinion but I expect it to be a slow burner that eventually grows on everyone

 

Jeremih & Ty Dolla $ign – The Light

Two of the R&B gods out dropped the lead single off their soon-to-be-released collaborative mixtape and if its any indication off what to expect, there will be a lot of babies born in 9 months time

 

B Young – 079ME

B Young dropped the follow up to his smash record Jumanji and its a hell of a summer bop. Enjoy below

 

 

Chip – Dark Vader

Easily one of my favourite UK MCs out Chip dropped his first single since LOMO2 and he flexes his lyrical talent all over this one. Enjoy below

 

 

Young M.A – PettyWap

Young M.A might finally have her follow up smash to Oooouuuu with Pettywap. Enjoy the vibes below

Fire Tunes Of The Day Featuring Tory Lanez, Jorja Smith, One Acen, Future & KIDS SEE GHOSTS

Back with another round of the finest tunes that dropped over the past week!

Tory Lanez – Pa Mi (with Ozuna)

Clearly not content with the success of his 2018 sophomore album Memories Don’t Die, Tory Lanez is back with an absolute monster of a record featuring latin trap superstar Ozuna. I don’t know what it is but I’ve seen myself love latin records more & more with each listen (my parents say I’ve been fascinated by the language since I was 7 years old) and Pa Mi continues the trend nicely. The hook is really the winner here but its one hell of a fire tune that everyone needs to check out. Listen to the banger below

 

Jorja Smith – On Your Own

British singer Jorja Smith released her debut album Lost & Found this Friday to rave reviews so far. I know it’s early days but it’s easily one of my favourite LPs of the year & the record hasn’t even been out for a week. Deciding on a fire tune from the album was a job in itself as Wandering Romance & The One were also in contention but I decided to go with my current favourite On Your Own. I honestly have no words to describe how amazing the song is, so listen to the LP here &  press play on the FTOD below

 

One Acen – EIO Ft. Hardy Caprio

You know summer’s around the corner when there’s a new banger from One Acen & Hardy Caprio. Both artists have seen their stars steadily grow over the past two years with the constant release of fire tracks. EIO serves as yet another catchy banger, which I expect to translate nicely unto dance-floors throughout the summer & beyond. I’ve had a hard time getting it out of my head over the past few days for a reason; find out below

 

 

Future – Tie My Shoes Ft. Young Thug

The soundtrack album for the soon-to-be-released SUPERFLY movie dropped this past Friday & was curated by Atlanta superstar Future. The 13 track album sees Future feature on ten records & if you exclude the R&B records, it sounds like a dope Future mixtape in all honestly. My current favourite has to be Tie My Shoes featuring fellow sauce-god Young Thug. Check out the soundtrack album herelisten to the featured FTOD below

 

KIDS SEE GHOSTS (Kanye West & Kid Cudi) – 4th Dimension Ft. Louis Prima

Kanye West dropped off the latest 7-track album KIDS SEE GHOSTS from G.O.O.D Music this past Friday following Daytona & Ye. It’s the 2nd best project of the releases so far behind Daytona, which is in a league of its own. It’s a collaboration album between Kanye West & long-time collaborator/former signee/on-and-off friend Kid Cudi. The production on the record is phenomenal as we’ve seen on both previously released albums but the bars are good at best in my opinion. Either way, the standout record for me is 4th Dimension featuring Louis Prima, which is just an all-round great song to vibe to. Listen to the album here & check out the featured tune below

Fire Tune Of The Day: A Boogie Wit da Hoodie – Way Too Fly Ft. Davido

It’s officially been a year since I started the website & shoutout to every single soul who’s ever clicked unto the site and checked out the music! Without any further ado, today’s FTOD is this gem of a banger released by NY rapper A Boogie just under a fortnight ago and it features afrobeat superstar Davido. It’s an unexpected collaboration in all honesty but the chemistry of both artists on the song is undeniable and they perfectly complemented each other on Way Too Fly in my opinion. I hope this song gets the clout and airplay it deserves over the summer! Listen below

Fire Tunes Of The Day: J Hus – Dark Vader x Dancing Man

Big HUS is back and supplies today’s fire melodies for our listening pleasure! The London hitmaker released his Big Spang EP earlier today, which he’s been teasing for a while and stands as his first solo release since dropping his critically-acclaimed debut album Common Sensewhich was my no.1 album of 2017 bar none. All 3 tracks on the EP are wavy records but I can see Dark Vader Dancing Man ringing off at turn-up functions all summer long!  Listen to the 3 track EP here and check out the featured tunes below

Fire Tune Of The Day: Lady Leshurr – OMW

Today’s FTOD is this absolute gem of a fire tune from Birmingham native Lady Leshurr. It’s a departure from her usual hard-hitting sound, which has effectively made her career up until this point. It feels like a bit of a reach as she’s never made anything previously like this but who am I to frown on an artist for expanding her sound and using influences from her Caribbean roots to make a potential summer banger, which is exactly what this tune is. Honestly, it is a fucking fuego tune and I expect this to age extremely well as the summer comes & goes by. Listen to the record below

Anderson .Paak – Bubblin

Anderson .Paak’s finally dropped his first solo single since dropping 2016’s critically acclaimed Malibu album which catapulted him into superstardom. I’ve always been a huge fan and I honestly can’t get Bubblin out of my head. I’m expecting an album rollout to be announced soon but in the meantime, enjoy the fire tune below

 

 

 

J Balvin – Dóndo Estarás 

J Balvin released his latest single Dóndo Estarás off his forthcoming 4th studio album Vibras which drops this Friday. The album includes the global hit Mi Gente and if this latest single is any indication of what to expect then we are in for a treat! I’m fully on the J Balvin latin wave and I’m looking forward to the album dropping. Enjoy the fire single below in the meantime

 

 

Ebenezer – When I Call Em Ft. A Boogie Wit da Hoodie

UK artist Ebenezer released his latest single When I Call Em featuring New York emcee A Boogie Wit da Hoodie and it’s one hell of a vibe. I’ve previously paid attention to his earlier releases but none of them hit me quite like this record has. It’s a bop and a half and in all honesty, everyone needs to listen to this record. Listen to the fire tune below

 

Jay Rock – WIN

TDE rapper Jay Rock released his first solo single since releasing his sophomore album 90059 in 2015 called WIN and the record literally depicts its title. WIN features Kendrick on backing ad-lib duty and I can already seeing this being my good energy record of choice whenever I need to get amped up to do a task over the coming months! I’m sure an album is in the works but we’ll we wait for updates, enjoy the banger below!

Fire Tune Of The Day: Lil Baby – Yes Indeed Ft. Drake

You know it’s a great day when there’s a new Drizzy verse for our ears to get excited about and that is exactly what today is with Yes Indeed, which is the brand new record by Atlanta rapper Lil Baby. The GOAT himself Drizzy delivered yet another outstanding verse on here and I’ve honestly wheeled the record up at least 30 times in the past 24 hours! Listen to the song, which premiered on OVO Sound radio this past Saturday below

Fire Tune Of The Day: Ty Dolla $ign – Clout Ft. 21 Savage x BBK – Athlete Ft. Goldie1

Athlete was the original fire tune for the day but Ty Dolla $ign dropped a fuego tune earlier today so a double- serving is the order of the day

Ty Dolla $ign – Clout Ft. 21 Savage

Ty Dolla $ign finally released his first official solo single today titled Clout featuring 21 Savage. Over the years, I’ve come to appreciate Ty Dolla $ign especially for his ability to drop well-rounded LPs ($ign Language, Free TC, Beach House 3 to name a few) , that require no use of the skip button. However, this serves as his first release since dropping the well-received Beach House 3 late last year and points to another LP being in the works. 21 blessed Clout with a fire 16 and the result is one hell of a bop. Peep the fire tune below

 

 

BBK – Athlete Ft. Goldie1

Grime collective pioneers Boy Better Know released their surprise single Athlete over the weekend featuring the legendary Goldie1 on the hook. It’s a welcomed track and the first release as a group since dropping Detox on Skepta’s Mercury prize winning album KonnichiwaI personally love BBK and everything they stand for so it’s no surprise that this has been added to the playlist rotation. Listen to the fire tune below
