Another Friday and another batch of new music has arrived. Tonight we have a great mix of genres and moods so let’s not waste any time.
Indigo – Chris Brown
This project has 32 tracks and 16 features. Whew. If you love Chris I’m sure you’re overjoyed or pleasantly overwhelmed. I’m sure there’s a Song of the Summer contender on here but personally I won’t be listening to find out.
CASE STUDY 01 – Daniel Caesar
This project was a surprise release with most of us not finding out about it until Thursday afternoon. Daniel has already taken his place among the next generation of R&B artists and he looks to continue his success with this project. With features from Pharrell, Brandy and John Mayer this one will truly be something special.
Bandanna – Freddie Gibbs x Madlib
The last collab project from these two was on everyone’s AOTY list in 2014 and may very well be one of the few releases of this decade to actually deserve the “classic” classification. They’re looking to continue the legacy with this project. With features from Black Thought, Pusha T, Yasiin Bey and Black Thought you already know this one is straight hip hop. And with Madlib on production you know the samples will be wonderfully perfect.

Once you’re done head nodding and making the stank face while listening to Bandanna you can slide over to Perfect 10 to get your fix of fun tracks.

The clear standouts on this one would have to be “Surface” which features Ty Dolla $ign and Ella Mai, “Woah Woah’ with Young Thug and Gunna and of course “Perfect 10” which features Nipsey Hussle. A$AP Rocky and Ferg, Playboi Carti, Young Thug, Meek Mill and more also appear on the project.
Three Point Stance – Juicy J feat. City Girls and Megan Thee Stallion
This song sounds exactly how you’d imagine it would sound. However, Juicy J does hit us with the whispering technique on the hook which was unexpected. Megan and Yung Miami drop a verse about their most powerful asset and Juicy J shares his appreciation for this asset. I don’t see one available right now but a clean version of this song would be absolutely hilarious because…
