Fire Tunes Of The Day Featuring Huncho Jack, Cardi B, Bruno Mars, Lil Uzi Vert, Kendrick Lamar, SZA & Justin Timberlake

Happy New Year to everyone who comes across this post. It’s my first official post of the year as I was in turn up mode in Lagos, Nigeria over the past few weeks but I’m back to supply the necessary fire to start the year off right. I’ve got 6 tracks for your listening pleasure today, which consists of recent releases & tunes I expected to share over the Christmas period. So without any further ado, let’s get into it!

Huncho Jack (Travis Scott & Quavo) – Go

Two of my favourite rappers out Travis Scott & Quavo, surprisingly released their long-awaited collaborative LP Huncho Jack just before Christmas on December 21st under the moniker Huncho Jack, which alludes to their respective nicknames (Travis Scott – Cactus Jack & Quavo – Huncho). The 13-track album showcases elements of both artists that we’ve come to love & has garnered relatively positive reviews so far. With both rappers prepping studio albums in 2018, the LP feels like it lacked the missing X-factor which both artists usually bring to their records & it felt like a collection of their favourite collaborative songs, which were dope but not quite right for their respective individual albums, so they decided to treat the fans. I personally like the album & there are 3/4 songs on it that automatically get me into turn up mode including the featured fire tune Go. All in all, it’s great to see artists collaborate together but I’m now looking forward to Astroworld & Culture II from Travis Scott and Quavo respectively because I expect both projects to be better produced & curated in comparison to this. It’s still an enjoyable listen, so check out the album here & listen to the fire tune below

 

Cardi B – Bartier Cardi Ft. 21 Savage

No one arguably had a better 2017 than Cardi B, who shot from Instagram/LHH fame to no.1 on the US Billboard charts, with the unmissable Bodak YellowThe music world’s been ready for the follow up to the monster jam & Cardi did not disappoint with the aptly titled sequel Bartier Cardi featuring the one & only 21 Savage. The Bronx native is definitely no one hit wonder & the record serves as ample proof. I fully expect the song to do damage in the clubs this year. Enjoy the record below

 

Bruno Mars – Finesse Remix Ft. Cardi B

Bruno Mars premiered the remix to Finesse off his 24k Magic album a few days ago featuring rave of the moment Cardi B. The track is a major nod to Cardi B whose recent but swift ascent in the music game has been nothing short of phenomenal & having a premiere artist like Bruno Mars request your vocals on a standout record remix is a major look, whichever you look at it. Listen to the fire tune below

 

Lil Uzi Vert – 20 Min

Lil Uzi Vert released the Deluxe version of his smash debut album Luv Is Rage 2 album towards the end of 2017, which included 4 additional songs including the featured tune 20 Min. Lil Uzi Vert had as good of a year as anyone last year, especially with XO Tour Llif3 turning into a smash hit by any measure. I like all the additional records but 20 Min just stood out a bit more for me. Enjoy the record below

 

Kendrick Lamar & SZA – All The Stars

Kendrick Lamar & Top Dawg are curating the official soundtrack to Black Panther & All The Stars serves as the first official single off the soon-to-be-released LP for the movie. In true TDE fashion, both artists brought their A game on this one & it proves to be yet another strong collaboration from the two artists, joining a list of Babylon & Doves In The Wind as certified classics in my personal music library. Look out for the movie & accompanying soundtrack when they’re both released but enjoy the lead single below in the meantime

 

Justin Timberlake – Filthy

Justin Timberlake announced his 5th studio album Man Of The Woods earlier in the week & let go of the lead single Filthy on Friday. It’s a refreshing & welcome return from one of Pop/R&B’s true greats & the album will serve as his first official release since 2013’s The 20/20 Experience double album. Man Of The Woods drops on February 2nd & I’m excited to hear what Mr. Timberlake has in stock for us. Enjoy the lead single below
