#5. Nilo Blues – She Like It
I don’t feel like I should like this track, but yet here we are. There’s some real goodness in that the post-chorus hook, and you can really hear the Drake influences.
#4. Innr Circle – Waves
Discovery of last week who I think is going to go onto big things. Got a really cool sound, and while the song itself is not blowing my mind I am so into the potential.
#3. Zhao Feat. Annabelle Marginnis & Def Sound & Tolliver – Recollection
I kinda feel like Zhao is a sneaky music mastermind. His tracks are so unique and quirky, yet incredibly accessible.
#2. Be No Rain – All Night, Right?
I am so so so into this song and I don’t know why. There’s something about it that tickles my ears in a very nice way.
#1. Dornik Feat. Skripture – Hang On
The last of the Dornik train, which makes me kinda sad. Another top quality track from Limboland. Dude is too good at music.
#5. Lady Gaga – Enigma
Ultimately, I think there is only so much Gaga I can take in at any one point in time. I’ve currently hit my limit. Between Engima and Stupid Love a few weeks ago, I’m probably set for the next year or so.
#4. Boston Manor – Plasticine Dreams
I could throw this song into any grunge mix of the 90s/early 2000s and it wouldn’t be out of place at all. Treble Charger, Sum 41, Boston Manor, Bush… it fits perfectly.
#3. Jayee – Lie To You
Top three tracks this week are all tied for #1. Too close to call. Starting with Jaycee’s rnb banger that has one hell of a post-chorus-pre-verse… hook? I don’t really know what to call that.
#2. Mariah The Scientist – RIP
This one completely came out of nowhere. I think it was retweeted by an artist I follow on Soundcloud. The new Kehlani (which isn’t even fair to Kehlani… she’s still in her prime!). Excited to see where Mariah The Scientest goes.
#1. Dornik Feat. Taylor Graves – You Got It
More Dornik because that’s what everyone needs in their life right now. Smooth, ear-pleasing R&B jams. His newest album is so so good. He best not take another five years to give us new music after this drop!! Can’t wait that long again.
