Zayn has definitely carved a lane of his own since his One Direction departure, and now he gives us some new music featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR, “Still Got Time”.
“Still Got Time” is definitely made for the summer with the heavy drum production and almost tropical feel. It is the perfect track for him, but I don’t see it doing wonders like “Pillowtalk” did. I was expecting a little bit more since I feel like these two artists are the perfect blend, but I’ll take it.
I’ll jam to it, but it’s not life changing. Who knows, it definitely has potential to grow on me for sure.
Calvin Harris has been killing the game lately, from releasing to the smash of last year “This is What You Came For” to now releasing the track of the summer, “Slide”. I was a bit hesitant when I heard that Migos was an added feature, but I have to say they killed it.
Frank ocean smoothly coasts over the disco fused production. This track is easily the perfect recipe for a chart takeover. Calvin Harris recently put out a statement to say that uplifting music is missing from the world, and vows to bring it back. “Slide” being the perfect example of that.
Sia, receiving a slow burning chart topper with “Cheap Thrills”, has just graced us with another smash. “The greatest” is another self-empowerment track that we are used to hearing from the songstress. While the streaming version features the amazing Kendrick Lamar, the music video does not include him.
The video is a very powerful tribute to the victims in he Orlando shooting as you see them dropping at the end with what looks like bullet holes in the background, with a very eerie silence.
I much prefer the Kendrick version ,which I have included after the jump, but for radio purposes I see why she has released two separate versions. Sia definitely has another hit on her hands with “The Greatest”.
I actually have no clue who Skizzy Mars, but everyone knows I’m here for anything JoJo related. This track definitely has me intrigued to check out Skizzy, he has a very smooth and chill vibe to him that works perfectly for the summer.
“Recognize” is almost a futuristic hip-hop vibe that I’m loving at the moment, while JoJo adds the perfect chorus to tie the song together. Take a listen to the track below, I’m going to look deeper into Skizzy Mars to see what other gems I find!
Patiently waiting for JoJo to drop that album in the meantime.
While his huge hit ‘I Don’t Fuck With You’, continues to rise on the charts, Big Sean releases another track from his upcoming album Dark Sky Paradise, due out Feb 24th. This track is basically everything you would expect from someone under the GOOD music label. Each one of them goes in on their verse, and I’m not the biggest fan of any of these three, but I have to say I love the vibe of this track. Everything I have heard from Big Sean’s new album, I have been a fan of. I think switching over to GOOD music was definitely a great move on his part, he is going to flourish this year!
