With Friday being the universal music release day, a good amount of fire tunes were released yesterday and I’ve decided to highlight a few absolute bangers that dropped both yesterday & recently in general. So here are my picks for today.
Calvin Harris Ft. Future & Khalid – Rollin
So Calvin Harris recently announced the release of his 5th studio album ‘Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1, which will be released on June 30th via his label Fly Eye Records and Columbia Records. He’s already released the sure fire summer banger ‘Slide’ featuring Migos & Frank Ocean and ‘Heatstroke’ featuring Young Thug, Pharrell Williams & Ariana Grande. The DJ/Producer finally released the 3rd single of the album yesterday; ‘Rollin’ and it sounds like a potential summer banger. The song features 19 year old rave of the moment singer Khalid & one of my favourite rappers out, Future. Listen to the song below
J Hus – Spirit & Fisherman Ft. Mist & Mo Stack
Mr. Ugly finally released his debut album ‘Common Sense’ yesterday and it definitely matched my high expectations. J Hus has carved out his own sound & lane in the UK rap music landscape, with his unique fusion of hip hop, reggae, afrobeats & grime. I’d even go as far as saying that J Hus has his own unique genre. Check out the new album here & listen to two of my standout tunes ‘Spirit’ and ‘Fisherman’ below.
Runtown – For Life
Nigerian afrobeats star Runtown, dropped arguably the biggest afrobeat song of 2016 with ‘Mad Over You’. The song ruled the airwaves in Nigeria & Africa in general in the 2nd half of 2016 and it was impossible to avoid. I personally found the song inescapable when I was in Nigeria over Christmas last year. The artist finally dropped his first release of 2017 yesterday and it sounds absolutely glorious. Check out the record below.
