Drake - "Nice For What"
I have been bumpin' this song since it came out last week. I put it on as soon as I get out of work, as soon as I leave my apartment, and pretty much on repeat for the entire subway ride. It's just such a good pump up song that makes you want to shake your booty, throw your fist up in the air, and scream "YES I DID IT!!!" even though you didn't do anything.
Superorganism - "Everybody Wants To Be Famous"
I slept on Superorganism for a bit I'll admit, but I'm so happy I stopped. They are so good.
Cardi B ft. Kehlani - "Ring"
Everyone's listening to Invasion Of Privacy...
but this song in particular is a winner. Kehlani's hook straight fire.
Lizzo - "Truth Hurts"
It's very likely any song that deals with femme empowerment will probably win me over. I don't usually listen to what Lizzo describes herself as, "feel good music." However, I've been yelling these catchy lyrics at all my friends, "I got boy problems that's the human in me / Bling bling then I solve them that's the human in me." Lizzo is the soundtrack of for anyone who is looking to work on their own self acceptance. Lizzo is on tour with HAIM right now and will be visiting New York May 4 and 5.
Lucy Dacus - "Night Shift"
Dacus creates beautiful images with her entire new album. "Night Shift" kicks off the album and describes love and heartbreak in a very intimate way. Her warm voice is inviting and pulls you into her story.
The Walters - "I Love You So"
This song has this nice floaty vibe to it - it truly captures being in love with someone while simultaneously wishing you could get as far away from them as possible. The relationship is toxic, but you can't help saying, "I love you so."
Kali Uchis - "Tomorrow"
My girl gets funky as heck in "Tomorrow." Kali's dreamy vocals alone will take you back in time. But, the rhythm of the percussion will make you feel like you've been transported back to the 70's.
Piers Baron - "Leap Of Faith"
I heard this track for the first time the other day when it was featured as a Baeble First Play
on the site. Clearly I am not thinking in the present this week as this track is blatantly influenced by the 80's. Anyone who knows me knows I love a good 80's synth track.
Empress Of - "Trust Me Baby"
We also featured Empress Of's two newly released tracks
"Trust Me Baby", and "In Dreams" a couple days ago, and I just loved them both. "Trust Me Baby" switches back and forth from Spanish to English. The track sparkles and shimmers electro-pop, which will have you bobbing your head at your desk while trying to get some work done on this fine Friday.
