2016 has been damn near magical when it comes to new music. here are a few new albums I’ve been listening to.
1. Kaytranada – 99.9%
I discovered this album during a solo road trip last weekend. Kaytranada blew my fucking mind. Released last week, his interstellar production mixed with so many amazing features serves as the album of the summer-(thank goodness it was released just as this Indiana weather decided to get it together.) And Craig David is featured on track 2!!!!
He dropped the video for the single, Lite Spots. Check it here.
2. Drake – Views
He’s back at it again. Drizzy dropped a new one on us-this time he’s on top. Views is Drake sittin’ pretty on top and watching his kingdom unfold. I love the dancehall style he’s working with on Views. And yes, I’m biased because I’ve loved him since Degrassi-but oh well.
My favorite tracks are “Controlla,” “Too Good,” feat Rihanna and “Grammys” feat. Future. (Only for Drake’s verses in that one. Future’s verses didn’t do it do me.)
3. Anderson.Paak – Malibu
I LOVE ANDERSON.PAAK! His voice ranging from rapping to crooning-he peaks interest of different genre lovers. I discovered this album on the same road trip as the Kaytranada album (see above) and it soothed me all the way back home.
Listen to these jams, y’all!
