Fire Tune Of The Day: Ty Dolla $ign – Purple Emoji Ft. J Cole

R&B gawd & feature king Ty Dolla $ign provides today’s fire tune of the day selection! He recently let go of his new single Purple Emoji featuring J Cole just in time for the summer. This one gives me straight 90’s vibes with a super stripped down instrumental & a fire ‘More Than Ever’ sample for good measure. Cole continues his streak of dropping fire guest verses as expected on this one too. I’m expecting this to lead to a project at some point this year but in the meantime, enjoy the fire tune below

May’s been one hell of a month for new music! Initially starting off with super saiyan fire singles dropping right, left and centre and then topping it off with over 6 top tier albums dropping over the past fortnight from Santi, Megan The Stallion, Khaled, Slowthai, Leven Kali to Tyler The Creator! Let’s just say music fans have been eating all month & there’s no sign of things slowing down.  Here are 17 of the finest selections to have dropped throughout the month.


Santi – Maria Ft. Goldlink

Unbelievable tune featuring the Maryland MC taken off Santi’s recently released Mandy & The Jungle album


Tyler The Creator – EARFQUAKE

One of the standouts off Tyler’s excellent 5th studio album IGOR


Megan Thee Stallion – Simon Says Ft. Juicy J

2019’s sensation & Southern rapper Megan The Stallion came through major on her latest LP Fever, which includes the featured standout Simon Says


slowthai – Inglorious Ft. Skepta

One of the standouts of slowthai’s fire & politically charged new album Nothing Great About Britain. Who the fuck pissed off Skepta this year by the way cause he is bodied every single verse he’s laid on wax this year


DJ Khaled – Higher Feat. Nipsey Hussle & John Legend

A tear dropper from DJ Khaled featuring the late Nipsey Hussle & John Legend, who came through with a hook for the ages. Taken off his latest album Father of Asahd


Leven Kali – Cassandra

Low Tide’s easily one of my favourite albums of the year so far with numerous standouts to choose from including the catchy Cassandra. I guarantee you won’t be able to get the hook out of your head


Flying Lotus – More

The production on this is just plain nuts and Anderson Paak does it justice!


Jamila Woods

One hell of a tune from the Chicago singer


Goldlink – Zulu Screams Ft. Maleek Berry

I was pleasantly surprised by this collaboration, which has resulted in one of the potential tunes of the summer in my opinion


WSTRN – Medusa Feat. Unknown T

Do WSTRN ever miss? Their current run of hits is honestly unprecedented since the group were forced to turn solo and Medusa cements that for the foreseeable future.


Skepta – Greaze Mode Ft. Nafe Smallz

Earlier in the month, Skepta announced his surprise album Ignorance in Bliss, which is slated for release in just over a week on the 31st and premiered two new singles including the hard hitting Greaze Mode


Ari Lennox – Speak To Me

Ari Lennox dropped one hell of a stellar debut album in Shea Butter Baby with Speak To Me being one of my absolute faves


Jhene Aiko – Triggered (freestyle)

Jhene took us right back with a stunning vocal performance on this relatable masterpiece


Jaykae & Aitch – On The Way Home Feat. Bowzer Boss

Brum & Liverpool collide on this refreshing tune. Turn this up!


Ambush Buzzworl – Dem Man

Ambush delivers yet again with a tune in time for the summer


Headie One – All Day

Headie’s having one hell of a 2019 dropping 18HUNNA, following that up with the impressive Drillers x Trappers II and maintaining that streak with All Day


Jae Stephens – got it like that

Enjoy this fire tune from the Texas native

Fire Tune Of The Day: MoStack – Wild


Today’s FTOD is by one of my favourite rappers from the UK; MoStack. The London MC recently announced the release of his debut album Stacko, which drops on June 7th with Wild serving as the first official single and boy did he deliver on this! MoStack has a penchant for dropping summer-ready party bangers with catchy hooks that immediately make you move ( Explore Ya, Ussy Ussy & Let It Ring to name a few). Wild builds on the incredible momentum Stack’s currently on this year following his critically acclaimed Daily DuppyEnjoy the fire tune below & make sure you check out Stacko when it’s released in just over a month!

Gimme marks a welcome return from the LA native as it’s her first release since 2017’s Underdog and potentially points towards an album release later this year, which would be her first since 2016’s The Altar.

Long time no post but here’s a bumper playlist of all the fire tunes released over spring. In a nutshell, I’ve got you covered to the tune of over 90 songs in the updated Official Vibes Patron playlist covering the latest releases in chronological order. Enjoy the Apple Music version here or the Spotify version below

It’s been way longer than anticipated since my last post, so I’ve counted up the days and I’ve got 21 fire tunes for your ears to make up for the time & in respect to Mr Savage. Every tune on here’s very deserving of its spot and they’re all currently on rotation in my personal February flames list! Enjoy the selections below!

Khalid – Talk

Khalid surprised the world this past Friday with this absolute gem of a tune! I mean he’s pretty much  been a fixture in the music world for the past two years since his debut single Location exploded. He’s followed it up with banger after banger, with OTW & Better serving as particular standouts for me. Talk might be my favourite song from the genius himself & my excitement ramped up even more prior to my first listen when I heard that Disclosure (also faves) produced the track. It’s shot up to no. 1 on my personal playlist and will probably stay there for the foreseeable future cause it’s honestly that good! In fact, it might be my favourite record of the year so far. Enjoy the fire tune below



Ariana Grande –  Break Up With Your Boyfriend, I’m Bored

My long-time guilty pleasure music-wise Ariana Grande has done it again. I’ve been a fan since I heard Baby I off her debut album Yours Truly & she’s just dropped her impressive 4th studio album Thank u, next on Friday to rave reviews so far. The making of the album was therapeutic for the superstar according to Apple Music following the death of her ex-boyfrind Mac Miller & the subsequent break up of her engagement to Pete Davidson. It’s safe to say she channeled a lot of her energy into this album and the 13 track album is honestly a great body of work. My personal favourite has to be the featured tune although it was a close call against Bloodline. Make sure you check out the album here and enjoy the banger below



AJ Tracey – Nothing But Net Ft. Giggs

Ladbroke Grove native & blog favourite AJ Tracey dropped his debut album this Friday and its safe to say he delivered big time on this one in my opinion. It continues to grow on me with every listen and Rina or Wifey Riddim Pt. 3 could have easily ended up as the featured track but I’ve opted for Nothing But Net due to Giggs’ stellar 16. Peep the album here and check out the fire tune below


Odunsi (The Engine) – Tipsy Ft. RAYE

Odunsi’s released the first follow up single since he dropped his stellar debut album RARE in the 4th quarter of 2018, which I immensely enjoyed and would put in my personal top 20 of the year. I also recently attended his sold out show at the Garage in North London & its safe to say The Engine’s star is firmly on the rise! Tipsy premiered on Beats 1 last week Wednesday following the sold out show & it features RAYE who added the missing fung-shway to the record! Peep the record below


Ramz – Hold You Down

Ramz released his first single of 2019 Hold You Down following his breakthrough 2018, where his debut single Barking peaked at number 2 on the UK charts. He’s followed that up with numerous bangers including personal fave Family Tree and Hold You Down shows that he will be here for a very long time as he’s got a particular penchant for catchy melodies,which can only be a good thing for his career. Enjoy the bop below



Mahalia –  Do Not Disturb

Mahalia’s steadily on the rise in the UK R&B scene and Do Not Disturb has to be my favourite record from her in a minute. I expect this to gain serious traction, so enjoy the fire tune below



Skepta – Wish You Were Here

Wiley kept taking subtle shots at Skepta & here’s the resulting dub, which i love way more than I should considering its a diss track & I’ve got love for Wiley. Honestly, it goes so hard and we all know Skepta’s flow is second to none on this side of the pond & here’s yet another exhibit. Enjoy the dub below


Trey Songz – Chi Chi Ft. Chris Brown

R&B crooners Trey Songz & Chris Brown teamed up for the former’s first release of 2019 Chi Chi. As it’s expected, its a tune and a half & I’m eager to see if this translates to the clubs over the next few months. I have a feeling Trey Songz might be prepping an album for this year but until there’s an official confirmation, enjoy the catchy tune below



Jevon – Lingo Ft. Kida Kudz & Diggy Simmons

UK rapper Jevon released this catchy bop of a record just under a fortnight ago featuring rave of the moment Kida Kudz & an impressive 16 from Diggy Simmons. Enjoy the resulting fire record below


Lil Skies – Name In The Sand

I personally usually shirk at the thought of listening to yet another ‘Lil’ and the jury was out for me on Lil Skies but after hearing his fire feature on Gucci’s Mad Russian last year, I began to warm towards the Pennsylvania rapper and Name In The Sand definitely serves as the sealer for me. I absolutely love this record and I think you would too. Listen below



Yung Fume – Islands

I honestly had never listened to a Yung Fume record prior to me hearing Islands just over a fortnight ago & Lord knows I’ll be checking on every subsequent release cause this right here is a vibe! Listen below



Dua Lipa – Swan Song (From Alita: Battle Angel)

Another one of my music guilty-pleasures Dua Lipa’s back again with yet another fire record! Honestly she can do no wrong in my eyes (Apart from performing lol) and Swan Song adds to her legend. It’s just a beautiful beautiful song! Enjoy below



Jay Prince – BLESSED NOW

Safe to say Jay Prince’s January EP WONDER meet & exceeded my expectations following my earlier post in the year highlighting BEAMLIGHT. BLESSED NOW easily surpassed BEAMLIGHT in my opinion once the album dropped and I believe everyone needs to hear this song! It’s that fire!


Tiggs Da Author – KINSHASA RIDDIM Ft. Blade Brown

Never listened to a Tiggs Da Author record before but this right here is a masterclass on how you get people to listen to your record with a monster hook. The hook on this sounds like nothing I’ve ever heard before and I’ve had it stuck in my head practically everyday since. Safe to say I’ll be checking for him going forward! Enjoy the song below



Loyle Carner – You Don’t Know Ft. Rebel Kleff & Kiko Bun

Loyle Carner has carved a special unwavering lane for himself in the UK rap scene & he’s going nowhere anytime soon. Following the immense success of his debut album Yesterday’s Gone in 2017, the London MC has spent subsequent time touring with new single releases few and far between. However, earlier this year, he surprised fans with his new single You Don’t Know which I’m a big fan of and its his first release since last year’s Ottolenghi featuring Jordan Rakei!  Enjoy the tune below




Jermaine Cole’s been busy in 2019 working on the 3rd installment of his Dreamville label’s Revenge of The Dreamers compilation series, which took the hip-hop world by storm due to the unique yellow invitations made for the 10 day sessions, which culminated in all invitees posting their invitation across social media. He preceded the year by bodying any & every feature verse in 2018 ending with alot off 21 Savage’s stellar 3rd studio album. MIDDLE CHILD served as his first single of the year and also sees the return of legendary Toronto producer T-Minus who had been on a multi-year hiatus. Enjoy the fire tune below


James Blake – Mile High Ft. Travis Scott & Metro Boomin

James Blake took the world by storm earlier in the year with the release of his 4th studio album Assume Form. It’s a good body of work although other people seem to enjoy it more compared to myself but there’s one record I can’t get out of my head; Mile High featuring Travis Scott & Metro Boomin. La Flame particularly shines on this with a ridiculously catchy bridge. Enjoy the tune below



Blueface – Thotiana

I stumbled across Blueface while catching up on Everyday Struggle earlier this year, with DJ Akademiks predicting he was on the verge of a big year as Thotiana was gaining traction in certain quarters stateside. It’s safe to say the record is well and truly on its way to being a global banger! Peep the tune below


Burna Boy x Zlatan – Killin Dem

Burna Boy & Zlatan premiered this absolote banger Killin Dem at the former’s sold out Boxing Day concert in Lagos. The song was subsequently released a few days after and gained traction immediately. However, the video premiered  fortnight ago and Killin Dem has graduated to become the go-to afrobeat hit record at the moment & I expect this to be in rotation throughout 2019 especially with the notoriously long shelf-life off afrobeat hits!



Russ – Gun Lean Remix Ft. Taze, LD, Digga D, Ms Banks & Lethal Bizzle

Drill MC Russ released arguably the song of the year Gun Lean late last year along with the viral dance that has quite on like a wildfire all over the UK. He followed it up earlier this year with a stellar remix line up and its safe to say, no one let themselves down on here. Listen below!



Little Simz – Selfish Ft. Cleo Sol

Little Simz is gearing up to release her 3rd studio album Grey AREA and her first full length release since 2016’s Stillness in Wonderland. Selfish serves as the lead single for the project and if this is any indication, then we’re aim for experimental greatness from the North London MC. It just might be my favourite ever record from the rapper and I’m super excited to hear the full album once its released later this year. Enjoy the record below

Fire Tunes Of The Day Featuring Future, DMW, LION BABE, Casanova & Jay Prince

Last week’s New Music Friday served up a treat with loads of fire tunes to chose from. Here are 5 of my current faves constantly on rotation right now

Future – Unicorn Purp Ft. Young Thug & Gunna

Future just dropped his album The WIZRD this past Friday to rave reviews on the twitter streets and from critics alike. I personally love it & I honestly can’t get enough of it right now so I expect it to be on rotation for a while. Choosing a tune from the album was a tough one cause it’s littered with bangers but the fire features from Young Thug & Gunna swung it in the end for Unicorn Purp. Listen to the fire tune below and be sure to check out Future’s latest album here


DMW, Davido & Zlatan – Bum Bum

DMW head honcho Davido & afrobeat rave of the moment Zlatan connected so seamlessly on this record. It’s a bop and a half & I expect this to translate to the dancefloors of Lagos and London asap. Enjoy the latest song to perfect your zanku moves to below


LION BABE – The Wave feat. Leikeli47

New York city duo dropped off this absolute worldy of a tune this past Friday featuring Leikeli47. It’s clear the duo are prepping an album for later this year and if this is any indication then we’re in for a treat. Enjoy the fire tune below


Casanova – 2AM Ft. Tory Lanez & Davido

Roc Nation artist & New York native Casanova premiered his first release of the year 2AM last week and it’s a groovy one. Tory Lanez provides a stellar hook and verse on this while Davido also shines on the record. Listen below



Jay Prince – BEAMLIGHT

Jay Prince premiered the lead single BEAMLIGHT off his forthcoming WONDER EP on Friday. The record shows growth in his artistry and I’m excited to hear the final body of work once the EP drops this Friday. Enjoy the record below

Fire Tune Of The Day: A Boogie wit da Hoodie – Beasty

New York native A Boogie provides today’s FTOD Beasty via his 2nd studio album Hoodie SZN which dropped on the final music release Friday of 2018. He’s on course to spend a 2nd consecutive week at no.1 on the Billboard 200 and I’m personally beginning to appreciate his music a lot more. Beasty’s my favourite song off the album so far but that could change at any moment cause the album is honestly that fire. Peep the fire tune below

Fire Tune Of The Day: Melii – HML Ft. A Boogie wit da Hoodie

Today’s FTOD is courtesy of bilingual afro-latina rapper & Harlem native Melli who I first came across on Wit The Shits (W.T.S) off Meek Mill’s recently released 3rd studio album ChampionshipsIt’s safe to say I was pleasantly surprised as she absolutely body bagged the record with her sensual & hard-hitting bilingual verse. HML serves as her first release of the year and it features A Boogie, whose album Hoodie SZN will peak at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week. Going by this song, I’ll definitely be following her career keenly as I expect a few more singles from her to follow later this year and an EP potentially. Listen to the fire tune below

Fire Tune Of The Day: Kehlani – Nights Like This Ft. Ty Dolla $ign

New Music Friday definitely served up a treat today. Superstar R&B singer Kehlani surprised fans with a new single today titled Nights Like This featuring my personal favourite R&B artist of the past 5 years Ty Dolla $ign. It serves as her first release of any kind since last year’s non-album single AgainIt’s been almost 2 years since she released her awesome debut album SweetSexySavage and she followed the release up with the below tweet so it’s safe to say I expect a sophomore album later in the year. Enjoy the fire tune below
