New Michael Jackson mix by Mark Ronson. Although you can't pack all of MJ's hits in 5 minutes this one does a pretty good job:
I've been a big fan of RnB vibes since I can remember. I've been following Ella Mai for quite some time and she had a big hit with "Boo'd Up". Last month, she released "Trip" her new single before her upcoming tour. At the time I saw this song published on August 2nd, 2018 it was at 100K views on youtube and now exactly one month later it's at 19M+!
Check them out below:
Childish Gambino released two new tracks called "Feels Like Summer" and "Summertime Magic". These feel good vibes are generic, poppy, and lyrically there's not much depth compared to his earlier "This is America" track he released two months ago. But that's exactly what I believe he was going for and there's nothing wrong with that. It's just two summer songs that he wants to persist in the moment. I do think Summertime Magic's beat carries the song more than his lyrics. Overall, I'm a big fan how he tries to stretch himself to try different things when it comes to his music.
Here are the three songs below:
Marc E. Bassy is one of those RnB / Pop artists who I think is underrated. Give his latest songs over the last few months a listen below:
Here are 2 songs by Camila Cabello:
This weekend while I was at the gym I opened Spotify to get some tunes going for my workout and Spotify suggested I should listen to Macklemore's new album GEMINI that came out on this past Friday. I heard a lot of buzz about this album so I went ahead and listened to the entire album during my workout.
Overall I like his new style and vibe that he's going for on this album. I respect artists who push themselves to try new things with their voice, beats, and general direction of their songs and Macklemore did just that. The songs in this album are much more fun and feel good with a few songs that have heavy lyrics. You can tell Macklemore wasn't as serious in his lyrics like his past songs and that is just fine. In a Rolling Stone interview with Macklemore he said just that, "It's not extremely politically motivated or heavily subject- or concept-oriented. I think it's mostly the music that I wanted to hear. It's the music that I wanted to go get into my car and listen to. I wanted it to be fun."
I've listed my favorite songs from the album below:
