Back again with a big FTOD drop after going ghost for the past few days!

BlocBoy JB – Look Alive Ft. Drake

Memphis native BlocBoy JB dropped his first official single since signing to OVO Sound this Friday featuring his new label boss Drake. It’s the first song I’ve ever heard from the rapper & I’m eager to hear what’s to come from him as Drake easily overshadowed him on his debut by shining on the hook & dropping another verse from the Drizzy stimulus package arsenal on the record. Peep the visuals & record below

 

 

Calvin Harris – Nuh Ready Nuh Ready Ft. PARTYNEXTDOOR

Calvin Harris released his first single of 2018 on Thursday. The record features R&B crooner PARTYNEXTDOOR & it’s a sizzler to say the least! I already expect this to do damage to both the charts & clubs over the course of the year. Listen below

 

Mist – Wish Me  Well Ft. Jessie Ware x Display Skills Ft. Mr Eazi & Fekky

Birmingham MC Mist finally released his hotly anticipated Diamond In The Dirt EP on Friday. The 25-minute project showcases the great chemistry of the rapper & his go-to producer Steel Banglez in a concise but hard-hitting way on the tape. Choosing a standout song was a challenge so I’ve opted to highlight two songs from the tape. Wish Me Well is a surprisingly welcome collaboration with singer Jessie Ware, while Display Skills features Mr Eazi on the hook & Fekky, who came through with a decent 16 for good measure. Check out the project here listen to the featured tunes below

 

Zacari – Redemption with Babes Wodumo

The Black Panther soundtrack also dropped on Friday ahead of the film’s worldwide release this week. The 14 track album was curated by Kendrick Lamar & Top Dawg Entertainment with many of the label’s acts featuring on the project too. It’s a befitting body of work for the movie but lacks the overall cohesion you would usually expect from a traditional music album. However, there are still a number of gems on it including Redemption by Zacari who featured on LOVE. off Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN album. Check out the soundtrack album here & listen to the FTOD below

Dr Sid – Open & Close

Afrobeats veteran Dr Sid recently released his first single of 2018 Open & Close & it’s one hell of a bop. Listen to the song below
