(365) Days of Favorites//5.7.22

Uh, I had a good girl in my room, no tats on her skin
I put work all in her purse, she got guilt all in her grin
And I swear it be the same, every fuckin’ where that I been
All you girls try to be saints, I’ll make you roll with a sinner
You can come to my hotel, you can bring me a friend
You can dress up like twins, I can teach you some French
Paper planes full of kush, a couple cups full of gin
Don’t know what city I’m in, wake up and do it again
And if you know me well, you know I don’t like to talk
But when I make a move, you know it’s loud as fuck
And if you wanna scream, get loud as fuck, baby

One of the most unique artists in popular music, and if she wanted to be as big as Taylor Swift she could be…she can craft a pop song as well as anyone…she just chooses to not play it straight.

It’s crazy to see an artist who has continually been atop the pop charts fooling the mass music listening audience into loving straight up f@$k music. The Weeknd is the modern master of baby making music. This is another vibed out track from the man who redefined today’s R&B landscape; examining fame, drugs, and the music industry as a whole.

Song of the summer (‘15) right here, love the homage to MJ. Almost sounds like ’83 Quincy Jones was in the studio. (bren)

I am still continually listening to Disclosure’s debut album Settle, but the brothers from across the pond didn’t fall into the sophomore slump with Caracal at all. This record is a more straightforward pop/dance record compared to the soulful house music we all came to know and love but I love it. Miguel is one of the better artists working in R&B today and he lends his voice to this moody dance track. With big collaborators like Sam Smith, Lorde, and The Weeknd,this track might get overlooked but it might be my personal fave from the album.

autreneveut-transparency

Fresh off his new Age of Transparency album, the follow up to his spectacular 2013 album Anxiety. “Panic Room” is an intense soul song with the same abstract production that we have come to know from Arthur Ashin. The Brooklyn producer also shares an incredibly awkward yet hilarious video for “Panic Room”.
