NEW SONG & VIDEO: Kali Uchis- “Tyrant”

ATTENTION! PSA! Kali Uchis will be releasing her debut studio album very soon! I repeat! Kali Uchis will be… yeah she just released her first single from her debut album.

As of right now, there is no album title or release date for Kali Uchis’ debut album but what I do know is that the album is coming soon. Last year, Kali released a song called “Only Girl” featuring Steve Lacy and that song lead many of us to believe the album was on the way… not quite. Kali released that song April of 2016 and we are now at the end of May 2017. That’s not the point though… the album is near this time, I know it and she starts this Untitled album era off right with the song “Tyrant”. “Tyrant” features British singer Jorja Smith (who was featured on Drake’s album More Life) and this song is wow. First, I must ask… has Kali Uchis missed yet? No. Second, I’m so happy she put Jorja on this song, she’s sooo dope to me.

“Tyrant” has so many different flavors. It is dancehall-like, but Kali is also singing in Spanish at various parts in the song. It’s just a song that instantly makes you want to dance. Kali and Jorja are both singing about a love that they never want to let go of and I guess the title comes from the lyrics basically saying that neither wants to let the other have control of the relationship.  Oh yeah, I love Jorja’s voice, I’m ready for her solo project. She was great on “Get It Together” with Drake and she makes another strong case for herself with “Tyrant”. Two amazingly dope female artists. #GirlPower

There is no album title or release date for Kali Uchis but I will make sure to post about it when it is released or whatever. If you haven’t already, listen to Kali’s solo project that “put her on the map” if you will, it’s called Por Vida. It’s on every music outlet so go listen, you won’t be disappointed.

NEW SONG: Kodie Shane- “Can You Handle It”

I can’t say this song is new, but it’s pretty new to me so just go with it.

There is a new artist on the horizon and her name is Kodie Shane. She is an 18 year old rapper/singer from Atlanta and she is creating her own lane. Kodie has this Pop-R&B sound while rapping/singing over trap beats that no one is really doing right now. Her soft voice also makes for a good pop sound so I think she has a future. Kodie has a song out called “Can You Handle It” and it’s a young love, you’re my boyfriend-type song.

NEW SONG: Njomza- “sad for you”

I’ve been trying to revert back to some of my old ways, by listening to music regardless of familiarity with the artist. All I do now is listen to the same songs, same artists, and doing that keeps me from listening to new music. So, I went out on a whim (sort of) and listened to Njomza’s new project called Sad for You. To be honest, I’m familiar with Njomza because of all of her music with Mac Miller (one of my favorite rappers), so I can’t say I just listened to some random artist for the first time… but I do my best.

NEW SONG: Kari Faux- “Night Time”

It’s been a year since Kari Faux released her first album Lost En Los Angeles, so to celebrate she drops a new song on Soundcloud. The song is called “Night Time” and it’s fireeee. When it began, I was a little apprehensive because she was singing but I should’ve known the song would be good because she ALWAYS delivers. The song is produced by herself and her partner bLAck pARty and the beat is very futuristic but also sounds like music from the 70’s… with some bass guitar integrated, so good. Kari said “tell them bitches catch my faaade, since they got so much to say”, she sang that part as well so it just made that line even better. She never disappoints. Love you Kari ❤

ALBUM REVIEW: ‘More Life’

morelife

I am going to try my hardest not to make this review too long but I can’t make any promises.

Drake released his latest project, which he so selectively called a “playlist”, on March 18th titled More Life. After many release delays, Drake finally released the anticipated project and of course shortly after the release, everyone turned into a rap critic. It’s something about Drake, for some reason he’s the one that is doing things that have never been done in this current music world that we live in and it’s like, people don’t like him for it. I’ll get to all this later on. Continue reading ALBUM REVIEW: ‘More Life’

REVIEW: Steve Lacy’s Demo

No matter how much I tell myself basically every day that I need to write something new, I somehow never do. I think I need more alone time but anyways, here’s something new.

My dad told me I’m obsessed with 70’s music. Music from the 70’s had this sound that I can’t really describe, I just know that it’s easy on the ears and the sound reminds me of a pretty day at the beach. Well, it just so happened that there are a handful of artists today that are inspired by such sound. Thundercat is leading the pack with the 70’s-esque music but there is a newcomer who is making a strong case for a future Best New Artist award and he goes by the name of Steve Lacy.
