VOLUME 8 HAS ARRIVED!!!! This week's list is on the short side, but don't be alarmed it's still full of gems. Sit back, light one, and enjoy!
Tayla Parx "Dance Alone" - This is the first single off Parx's second album, Coping Mechanisms. She spoke about the single: "'Dance Alone’ is about that deep desire to connect with someone in order to cope. We all have that special someone who makes us feel things where we literally ache for them or feel for them."
DaniLeigh & Fivio Foreign "Dominican Mami" - DaniLeigh has tapped in with Fivio for her newest song. This track is one of DaniLeigh's typical songs that make you have to get up and groove to it! Be on the lookout for the music video, since we know she was in DR claiming to be filming a video recently. It would make sense it was for this song....
Jessie Reyez "COFFIN" (ACOUSTIC) - Fans should already know this track since it was on her album, Before Love Came To Kill Us. This is the acoustic version she just released, without Eminem who is on the original track. In this version her voice sounds even better, let us know what you think!
Melli & Smoove'L "BDE" - NEW YORK STAND UP! Brooklyn meets Harlem in this new track called "BDE". Melli brings her bars per usual in both Spanish and English, showing us nothing can stop her talent. Get ready to blast this one and turn up in your living room!
Justine Skye "No Option" - Justine has just dropped off "No Option," which is the first single off her upcoming album, Bare With Me. If you're going through or have went through a toxic relationship, this track will sing to your heart.
Kaash Paige "Frank Ocean" - Can you believe it's been eight years since Frank dropped "Thinking Bout You"?! Kaash decided to pay homage to the goat in this track titled after him. This is her first song to come out in 2020, and it seems only right. She sings "You know I think about you/But do you think about me?/Like Frank Ocean"
Alex Mali "I Know" - Brooklyn's very own Alex Mali has released "I Know," which is the second single off her upcoming highly anticipated EP, ‘Phenom’. If you've been feeling down during quarantine, this track is sure to give you some confidence and motivation.
Rosalia & Travis Scott "TKN" - Rosalia has Travis Scott singing in Spanish on the track, talk about girl power! They also dropped the music video which shows them in LA. She spoke about "TKN": "I hope “TKN” gives you energy, makes you dance, and gives you strength if you’re going through difficult times."
Young Dolph & Megan Thee Stallion " RNB" - Young Dolph recruited Meg Thee Stallion for his newest track "RNB". Meg brings the heat per usual, "I just blew a bag on an all black Birkin/I think that I might be way too real of a b*tch/Told me watch my mouth, I told him watch his kids!"
