Songs of the Week 79: September 18 – September 24

raine#5. Raine – My Dreams

soundcloud.com/raine

A lovely melody carries My Dreams to the 5 spot this week. Can’t say I know much about Raine, but with just three tracks to her name (on Soundcloud anyway), all released in the past 2.5 months… I expect we’ll be hearing from her again soon.


moonzz#4. MOONzz & Melvv – Goodbye

soundcloud.com/imoonzz // soundcloud.com/itsmelvv

Another MOONZz track because, well… why not? Her recent EP release was amazing. Here she combines with Melvv for some more electronica goodness.


vincent#3. Kehlani – Gangsta (Vincent Remix)

soundcloud.com/vincent_official // soundcloud.com/kehlanimusic

Remix, Flip, whatever.. it’s all the same thing to me. I already adore Kehlani, and Vincent turns her lucious Gangsta into a banger dubstep track that is made for the club. Also loving the warped vocals.


meadowlark#2. Meadowlark – Headlights

This one is all chorus. I’ve had it spinning in my head ever since it first graced my ears, and I find myself constantly humming “oh my oh my god” without even thinking about it. Never underestimate the power of a catchy chorus.


frank-ocean#1. Frank Ocean (Feat. Beyonce) – Pink + White

Up until a few days ago there was a Youtube link for this one (obviously fan-uploaded illegally), and I’m super bummed out that it got taken down. The video chosen to accompany what is EASILY my favorite track from Frank Ocean’s latest was an anime clip (I cannot remember the show), and well… it just went perfectly with the song. I don’t watch anime, but now I can’t listen to this song without picturing this clip from the video. So sad that I can’t share it. Regardless, beautiful track.
