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

Fire Tune Of The Day Featuring Anderson .Paak, J Balvin, Ebenezer & Jay Rock

Today’s bumper selection consists of all the recently released tunes from this past Friday that have gone straight into my playlist rotation! So let’s get into the fire tune asap!

 

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: 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

Fire Tune Of The Day: RAYE – Confidence Ft. Maleek Berry (Prod. by Nana Rogues)

Today’s FTOD is courtesy of RAYE, who dropped her incredible Side Tapes EP on Friday. The 6 track EP is littered with bangers, including previous hits Decline Ft. Mr Eazi & Cigarette Ft. Mabel & Stefflon DonThe EP saw her expand her sound even further and every track is literally a moment. Any song from the EP could’ve easily been today’s featured tune but I went for Confidence cause it just has that extra special sauce to it. Maleek Berry delivered a fire verse as we’ve come to expect & Nana Rogues continues to out-do himself in the production department. Listen to the EP here & peep the fire tune below

Fire Tunes Of The Day Featuring Ms Banks, Wiley, Davido, JMSN & Post Malone

Got another bumper FTOD post for your listening pleasure today; enjoy!

Ms Banks – Clap

London rapper Ms Banks dropped her latest LP The Coldest Winter Ever this past Friday and it’s filled with heaters while also showcasing her versatility as a musician with rap, grime & afrobeat influences littered all over the record. However, my favourite song off the tape is easily Clap, which is one hell of a bop. Check out the LP here & listen to the fire tune below

 

Wiley – Over It

Grime originator Wiley dropped his latest album The Godfather II on Friday and after listening over the weekend, I’ve concluded that I prefer it to the prequel The Godfather which dropped last year. The album fuses multiple genres and sees Wiley spitting on both grime & rap riddims. Over It is my standout record so far as I’ve been unable to get the hook out of my head and the artist with the uncredited vocals deserve a moment for what he did to the song. Listen to the album here and check out the FTOD below

 

Davido – Assurance

Afrobeat superstar Davido finally let go off his latest release Assurance earlier this week and I expect this to blow up just like the vast majority of his discography. Assurance sees OBO profess his love for the primary lady in his life, while providing assurance to her that he’s in it for the long run. Check out the FTOD below

 

JMSN – So Badly

I’ve always been a casual fan of JMSN but I got particularly blown away by So Badly after hearing it on Joe Budden’s podcast where it was featured as a sleeper tune of the week. Press play and enjoy the greatness

 

 

Post Malone – Spoil My Night Ft. Swae Lee

Post Malone released his sophomore album beerbongs & bentleys this past Friday and it’s currently scheduled to have the highest 2018 1st week sales in hip-hop stateside so far. I’m a casual fan of Posty and White Iverson’s probably still my favourite record of his but Spoil My Night featuring the yung god Swae Lee definitely goes super hard and is easily my standout from the album. Check out the album here and listen to the song below

Fire Tune Of The Day: Janelle Monáe – I Like That

Janelle Monáe dropped her third album Dirty Computer this past Friday to rave reviews so far and it also provides today’s FTOD selection. I Like That was released earlier in the week as the LP’s final promotional single and it’s a beauty to say the least. Check out the incredible album here & the featured tune below

 

 

Fire Tune Of The Day: The Internet – Roll (Burbank Funk)

 

Today’s FTOD is the brand spanking new single Roll (Burbank Funk) from LA collective The Internet. It is the band’s first release since their critically acclaimed 2015 album Ego Deathwhich featured the incredible GIRL produced by Kaytranada. New music from the group has been a long time coming as members Syd & Steve Lacy dropped solo projects last year, so I’m particularly excited by this release and how funky (I couldn’t resist) it sounds. Listen to the fire tune below

Fire Tunes Of The Day Featuring Nines, J. Cole, Ramz, Khalid & Young Thug

Today’s FTOD post is a heavy hitter and includes standout records from my top 2 LPs of 2018 so far – Nines’ Crop Circle J.Cole’s KOD, which both dropped last week Friday. Nines’ Crop Circle is a well-rounded body of work and is up there with the best UK Rap albums to drop in a minute. It’s easily my favourite album at the moment & the featured fire tune Rubber Bands is a particular standout with RAY BLK delivering a monstrous hook to go alongside Skrapz stellar guest verse.

As for J.Cole, KOD was a much better first-listen experience for me compared to 4 Your Eyez Only and I seem to enjoy the album more with every listen. Picking a standout record was difficult but Motiv8 just shades it for me.

UK rapper Ramz, released his third single titled Family Tree and it’s easily his best effort since his debut single Barking, which peaked at no 2 on the Official UK Singles Chart. The hook is almost impossible to get out of your head after 2 listens!

US teen superstar Khalid released his latest gem this past Friday OTW featuring fellow R&B heavyweights Ty Dolla $ign & 6LACK. Honestly, the song is incredible and that’s all that needs to be said!

Young Thug showcased his genius yet again with the infectious Anybody featuring Nicki Minaj. The release was part of a 3 track EP Hear No Evil but is the standout record for me and has been on constant rotation for a hot minute now.

 

Nines – Rubber Bands Featuring RAY BLK & Skrapz

 

J. Cole – Motiv8

 

Ramz – Family Tree

 

 

Khalid – OTW Ft. Ty Dolla $ign & 6LACK

 

Young Thug – Anybody Ft. Nicki Minaj

Fire Tune Of The Day: ZAYN – Let Me

Look, this new Zayn Malik single is straight flames! His music isn’t usually my go-to but as you all know, I appreciate a great song when I hear one & that is exactly what Let Me is. The record looks to be the beginning of his sophomore album roll out following his 2016 solo debut Mind Of Mine. If this is any indication of what to expect, then we’re in for a treat & I’ll definitely be checking out the album when it drops. In the meantime, peep the fire single below

 

Fire Tune Of The Day: Mut4y x Wizkid x Ceeza Milli – Commando (Prod. Spellz)

Today’s FTOD is courtesy of Wizkid’s music imprint Starboy titled Commando. The record continues Wizkid’s electric start to the New Year after assisting DJ Spinall on Nowo & introducing the world to his listen label acts on Socoincluding today’s other featured MC Ceeza Milli. The tune was produced by super producer Spellz and in all honesty, Mut4y (a producer & one half of Legendury Beatz) is also credited on the song, so I’m guessing he co-produced on the record too. Listen to the fire tune below
