DJ Khaled has definitely given us a song for the summer with this one! “I’m the One” is star studded giving us verses from Quavo from Migos, Wayne, the legendary Chance the Rapper, and Justin Bieber smashing the hook!
The video is pretty basic, but it definitely sets the scene for the track for sure. Summer vibes all around on this one, and it is an absolute banger! DJ Khaled has given us some pretty amazing tracks this year, and only more to come! Rumor has it he has a Rihanna collab coming titled, “Grateful”, so be on the lookout for that soon!
Kygo has had quite the success since the “Firestone” days, and now he releases one of my favorite collaborations so far. This time he gives us a much anticipated track with the amazing, Ellie Goulding!
“The First Time” is mostly anticipated for the return of Ellie Goulding, who hasn’t dropped any solo material since her 2015 album, Delirium.
After taking quite the hiatus, Katy Perry has finally returned!
She first gave us the politically charged disco anthem, “Chained to the Rhythm” which I have to admit is still on heavy rotation. Now she gives us the Migos assisted track which she has been teasing all week, “Bon Appetit”.
The track definitely has a different vibe from “Chained” but I have to admit I’m definitely feeling it way more upon first few listens. The track is kind of a giant build-up, with each chorus giving us more and more until Migos jumps in right before the last synth-pop heavy chorus.
This track will definitely take over the airwaves with the catchy lyrics and heavy pop influenced beat.
“Quit” is exactly what we would expect from the pair. Ariana adds the sultry vocals, while Cashmere gives us some serious productions. He holds back during the verses and let’s Ariana’s signature vocals shine, then it all comes together perfectly on the hook to deliver an absolute smash.
9 is out now, and you can hear it after the jump via spotify!
To those of you that are a stranger to Whethan, I’ll give you a quick rundown. At just 17 years old, this Chicago native DJ is the talent behind some huge tracks featuring some quite amazing talent. One of my favorites being “Savage” featuring MAX and Flux Pavilion. Another notable track is Ashe assisted single, “Can’t Hide“.
That brings us to his newest banger, assisted by the ever so talented Charli XCX, “Love Gang”. Charli XCX’s vocals sooth over the signature heavy production of Whethan delivering a perfect summer anthem.
Whethan doesn’t have any news on an album just yet, but I can assure you, once it drops that it will be an absolute smash!
This track isn’t quite “new”, but has been given it’s official release as of yesterday! It has been floating around the internet for about a year now, and with Mura Masa dropping his self-titled debut on July 14th, we get the official sound.
Mura Masa has made quite the name for himself as of late with features coming from A$AP Rocky and Charlie XCX. He now features one of my favorites, NAO, on the track “Firefly”. This track is definitely built for the summer, as is his entire album. The light xylophone sounding beat gives NAO room to shine.
His debut album has some quite heavy features on it including Desiigner, A.K Paul, and Gorillaz own, Damon Albarn.
Take a listen below, and watch out come July 14th, this debut is going to be a smash!
“Lust for Life” is absolutely everything we could ever hope for in a collaboration with The Weeknd and Lana. The duo has previously worked together on two tracks for The Weeknd, and now it is Lana’s turn. We enjoyed the duo together because they just fit so smoothly vocally and their styles just pair perfectly.
“Lust for Life” is everything we could ever want from the duo. It oozes sexy, and just the perfect track to get summer started.
