Advertisements

Happy weekend, everyone. Welcome to New Music Friday. We’ve got a big week, including 2 out of 3 off of Drake‘s Scary Hours 2, Silk Sonic, Justin Bieber, and more.

Drake – What’s Next

This is probably my favorite track off of the 3-track EP, Scary Hours 2. Drake just doesn’t miss on this one. It’s 3 minutes and 20 seconds of straight fire.

When you put it that way…it really is a damn shame

Alright, we got the Twitter hype out of the way. Let’s get to the video!

I’m makin’ a change today
The liquor been takin’ the pain away
I heard you was givin’ your chain away
That’s kinda like givin’ your fame away

Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak) – Leave The Door Open

This…is the definition of baby makin’ music. They put the silky part of Silk Sonic in this one. Anderson .Paak is so underrated as an artist, and Bruno is an absolute legend. The vocals are so smooth. I love the vibe.

I can’t get past the fact that Anderson .Paak looks like a young Dave Chappelle on the drums. Bruno looks like he’s in a 70’s buddy cop movie. I love it.

Do your thing, young man. I love that attitude.
It really is, Kojo. It really is.
I ain’t playin’ no games
Every word that I say is coming straight from the heart
So if you tryna lay in these arms
I’ma leave the door open

Justin Bieber – Hold On

Honestly, this sounds like pretty much every other Justin Bieber song to come out in the last year or 2, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. His voice gets better with each track. And the lyrics have a great message, especially for the times we are living in right now.

Beliebers are losing their shit on Twitter

I don’t know why this tweet is so funny to me.
You’re not wrong, candy man.

Also, I think I’m hearing a little sampling from the synth in Bette Davis Eyes by Kim Carnes, as my buddy P just pointed it out.

Take my hand and hold on
Tell me everything that you need to say
‘Cause I know how it feels to be someone (Someone)
Feels to be someone who loses their way

Tate McRae – Slower

The Canadian artist of You Broke Me First fame released Slower this week, with the announcement of a new EP too young to be sad, which will be released March 26.

I like the song, but I have a feeling radio stations are going to play it to death and I’ll end up hating it in a few weeks.

Here’s Slower.

We could take it slower
Wait until we’re older
But I might be somebody
You might not even know her

Drake ft. Lil Baby – Wants and Needs

There’s a little bit of controversy going around with this track. Twitter has been blowing up since midnight about it.

Some lyrics in Wants and Needs slyly suggest a possible scandal including Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Have a listen and tell me your thoughts in the comments.

Forty-two millimeter, was made in Geneva
Yeah, I probably should go to Yeshiva, we went to Ibiza
Yeah, I probably should go link with Yeezy, I need me some Jesus
But soon as I started confessin’ my sins, he wouldn’t believe us

Conclusion

I’d say it’s a pretty damn good week for new music. Drake, Biebs, Bruno and Paak…good stuff.
