Blackbear’s a divisive character amongst the RnB and hip-hop crowd. Seems you either hate him or love him. I’m firmly a fence sitter in the battle, but I did enjoy Pink Rolex from his recent album drop.
Yep. The wtr track last week had me re-visiting DGAF and made me realize I never did give the tack a proper shot. Been addicted ever since. I’m now down a Noah Slee wormhole and all the glory that exists in his musical catalogue.
It’s legitimately a challenge to keep up with how much music Teflon Sega releases. While I’m finding a lot of his tracks are starting to sound the same, Damage has got some uniqueness to it. Just wish the dude would start uploading his tracks to Spotify again!!
Owners of the coolest header image I think I’ve used for any blog post, Kilian & Jo’s debut single is a uplifting indie pop song with some catchy warped vocals that will remain stuck with you well after you first listen.
#4. Snakeships Feat. Tinashe & Chance the Rapper – All My Friends (PREP Remix)
Seems to be me that Snakeships is remixed more than most artists. This one, by PREP, takes an already summer-ready track and adds some more summer. I’m not the biggest fan of Chance, but Tinashe sounds fantastic as usual.
Totally cheating this week. I actually considered this song for last week’s list, but decided it just couldn’t make the cut and beat out anyone else. Since then, I’ve fallen in love with Intimacy and the nostalgic feeling it gives me of 1990s angsty teen rock. Sometimes songs just need a little marinating.
#1. Hoodie Allen Feat. Blackbear and KYLE – Champagne and Pools
As with every Hoodie Allen song I have posted, I feel dirty. They all feel like guilty pleasure songs. I cannot, however, pretend that this chorus hasn’t been stuck in my head all week. Or that I haven’t been walking to work singing this for the entire way (it’s only a 5 minute walk). I am a huge fan of KYLE, and while I don’t know much about Blackbear I believe this is the second or third time he’s been featured in a song in one of my top 5 lists.
