Fire Tunes Of The Day Featuring Tory Lanez, J Balvin & Beyonce, Krept & Konan + Banks

by Olu

New music Friday definitely served up a treat this past Friday. I intended to post all featured tunes below individually but since I didn’t get round to posting any of them, here’s a full serving for your ears! I’ve also updated the FTOD playlists with the below tunes, which you can find and follow here (Apple Music) or here (Spotify).

Tory Lanez – Skrt Skrt

I know Tory Lanez was featured in my last post but he proved my inhibitions right by dropping another brand new single the very next day (this past Friday) titled Skrt Skrt. The sexy Caribbean-influenced single will definitely keep the ladies happy & adds to Tory’s growing catalogue of hits, which will only further raise expectations for his sophomore album. The Canadian native also announced that he’ll be releasing his next single Real Thing featuring Future this Friday, which I’m super excited about. Peep the absolutely fire tune below



Krept & Konan – For Me

Krept & Konan came back with a bang this past Friday with the release of two singles Wo Wo Wo & For Me which will feature on their upcoming mixtapes 7 Days & 7 Nights respectively. Both mixtapes drop in just over 2 weeks on October 20th & I am excited to say the least. Krept & Konan are cult heros in the UK rap game & have been moving the culture from time with classics like Don’t Waste My Time & Freak Of The Week which peaked at no.9 on the Official Top 40 back in 2015. The new singles serve as the duo’s first set of official releases via Virgin EMI since the release of their no.2 album The Long Way HomeHowever, the duo have kept their core fanbase happy with street acclaimed releases such as Last Night In Lagos & Last Night In LA plus stellar features on Abra Cadabra’s Robbery Remix to name a few.  For Me is my favourite of the new singles released & I expect it to ring off in the clubs over the coming months. Listen below & be sure to check out both mixtapes on the 20th



J Balvin & Willy Willian – Mi Gente Ft. Beyoncé

Colombian reggaeton superstar J Balvin & Willy Willian’s latest single Mi Gente has already enjoyed massive global success since it’s release in June peaking at no.19 on the Billboard 100, no.2 on the US Latin charts and no.1 in Colombia. However, the Queen Bee herself Beyoncé surprisingly hopped on the official remix & the resulting tune is glorious. Without losing any of the original song’s elements, Bey added a seductive verse while contributing to the remix’s hook. Listen to the anthem below


BANKS – Underdog

One of my favourite artists out BANKS, also surprisingly released a new single Underdog this past Friday & the song might be one of her finest releases yet; it’s really that good. It’s been just over a year since the California native released her successful sophomore album The Altarwhich spawned records such as Fuck With Myself & Mind GamesHer 2014 debut album Goddess brought her international fame & BANKS has managed to elevate her sound while maintaining its distinctness. This latest single suggests that she’s on the cusp of getting even better & delivering her finest work yet, which would hopefully be in the form of her 3rd album. Listen to the stellar song below
