Kehlani dons the cover of this week's playlist! Rightfully so, as she just announced her new album is coming this winter, named Blue Water Road. "ALTAR," the lead single off the album is featured on the playlist. The song is a beautiful expression of the words I could never say. She speaks about grief and loss in a way no one else can. Hear for yourself below and expect the tears to come out!
Opening song this week is "SAD GIRLZ LUV MONEY." The version I featured is a remix of the original by Amaarae (off her project & Moily, featuring Kali Uchis! Kali of course brought out her bilingual lyrics to seduce us into oblivion LOL:
"I walk like I know my pussy dangerous, Talk like my words are made of angel dust. When I whisper to you in a couple languages, Lo que quiero, papi, es besos en la espalda, pues.."
"Just Fine" is Kitty Ca$h's debut single featuring Kiana Lede. This is another bilingual song on my playlist, and I'm loving it! The LVRN (Love Renaissance) DJ Kitty Ca$h spoke about the single:
“‘Just Fine' is about that reassuring love. The love you can’t stop giving into. The love that stops time and the world around you and makes everything just fine. I hope this song evokes an effortless vibe of freedom and moves you to feel good. Whether you’re home with the fam or out with the girls I wanted to make a record that you could make memories of and dance to!”
Remy Ma is playing zero games with her new song "God Mother". The single is about how people call her "God Mother" as a homage to Griselda. The new mother dropped some gangsta mommy lyrics if you ask me!:
"Blew 60k at Neiman's, took the bulletproof vest off my chest cause I'm still breastfeedin' / got a forty-inch weave in / leave a muthafucka bleedin' / cause it's hot out this bitch, that's a good enough reason."
Tems has released her brand new debut EP, entitled If Orange Was A Place. The project consists of 5 songs with only 1 feature coming from R&B singer Brent Faiyaz on "Found". That is the song I decided to put on the playlist, it's easily one of my favorites. Be sure to check out the whole project now!
"Stuck" is Samaria's newest single. I am such a huge fan of hers, I have her last track "Out the Way" on daily rotation so you should check that out too if you haven't already. Timbaland recently shouted her out and I'm hoping they work together soon because all of her music reminds me of him x Aaliyah to be honest. On "Stuck" she sings about how she is always stuck in the middle:
"Like Lauryn once told us, 'You let go then I go' But what do I know?"
The OG original "Find A Way" is a track off H.E.R.'s album Back Of My Mind that came out in June 2021. She decided to add rappers Lil Baby & Lil Durk to the remix, and let's just say they gave what was needed to be given! PER USUAL OKAY, I just love Lil Baby and Durk on the same track - the chemistry is undeniable.
Lakeyah's latest song "313-414" is the lead single off her new project with DJ Drama, My Time (Gangsta Grillz: Special Edition). The song features Tee Grizzley, where the two rappers rep their hometowns (Detroit & Milwaukee). The project is dropping 9/24 and has other features that include Tyga, Moneybagg, and more. She raps:
"My family still amazed that all this money I done earned/ B*tch wanna burn that bridge, play that Usher, f*ck it let it burn"
