New Music Friday!

I know I apologized for this last week, and here we are again. I haven’t been able to post much lately, as I took on another job at Estabrook Road Records and I have been studying music business online. But it’s the weekend and I cannot miss New Music Friday! I also have 2 great interviews coming up this week with Cat Thompson and L’Marco, so follow us for updates!

Doja Cat ft. SZA – Kiss Me More

I feel like I’ve heard this song somewhere. Doja definitely sampled from Olivia Newton John‘s hit, Physical. Kiss Me More is a catchy-ass tune and the music video is visually stunning.

Can you kiss me more?
We’re so young, boy, we ain’t got nothin’ to lose, uh-oh
It’s just principle
Baby, hold me ’cause I like the way you move, uh-oh

Twenty One Pilots – Shy Away

Along with this single, Twenty One Pilots announced their upcoming album Scaled and Icy which will be released May 21. At 8:00 pm EST on that day, the duo will also hold a live-streamed concert. For tickets, hit up live.twentyonepilots.com.

In the meantime, check out their new single, Shy Away.

When I get home
You better not be there
We’re placin’ bets you won’t

Polo G – Rapstar

This track is a whole vibe and I am feeling it. I don’t have much to say about it, really. Just listen to it. Several times.

Seriously, if you don’t know who Polo G is…you will. This track is straight up fire. Check it out here.

Uh, copped a BMW, new deposit, I picked up another bag
Like fuck it, I’ma count while I’m in it
I hear planes flyin’, crowds screamin’, money counters, chains clangin’
Shit, I guess that’s how it sound when you winnin’

Estabrook Road Records

There are a few other decent releases this week, but I want to talk a little about the little guys. It’s not a bias thing. I really do enjoy listening to tracks from these smaller labels. Estabrook Road has put out some fire tracks recently with C. Lacy and Jane Handcock. We have 5 new releases this week and a great one coming next week. I’ll post the pre-save links below so you can check them out on whichever platform you prefer.

DMX – Slippin’

As a bonus track, and a tribute to DMX, who passed away this afternoon at 50-years-old after a drug overdose, here is his 1998 hit Slippin’

X recently told Uproxx about the origin of his addiction to crack cocaine, claiming his mentor passed him a blunt that he didn’t know was laced with liquid crack…at 14-years-old. “A monster was born” he said. Here’s the full interview. Warning, this shit is heartbreaking.

RIP Earl Simmons (DMX)

New Music Friday!

Welcome once again to another edition of New Music Friday here on Le Café Music Blog. It’s been a bit of a hectic week, so I haven’t posted since last Friday. I will definitely have more for you guys this week!

Now let’s get to the music!

Olivia Rodigo – Deja Vu

Olivia burst onto the scene with her debut track Drivers License, so it’s going to be hard to top that on her second shot.

This song seems to be a follow up about the blonde girl that always made her pout. This time, she wasn’t driving through the suburbs. She started this song with a car ride to Malibu.

Let’s see what Twitter had to say about this track.

That certainly escalated quickly.
You learn something new every day

Let’s get to the video.

So when you gonna tell her
That we did that too
She thinks it’s special
But it’s all reused

Demi Lovato – Dancing With The Devil

Demi Lovato makes her emotional return after her 2018 near-death experience after an overdose. Dancing With The Devil...The Art Of Starting Over is Demi’s first album since 2017.

Lovato has been through hell and back. I won’t get into those details out of respect for her. She lays a lot of it out in this recent documentary, so have a watch if you’re interested. Just a warning…it’s a lot to take in.

Here is the title track from her new album, Dancing With The Devil.

It’s just a little white line, I’ll be fine
But soon, that little white line is a little glass pipe
Tinfoil remedy almost got the best of me
I keep praying I don’t reach the end of my lifetime

BTS – (방탄소년단) Film out 

Their first single after smashing the charts with their hit Dynamite, the South Korean boy band is back. This time, they are not singing in English…or Korean. Film Out is sung in Japanese.

The upcoming BTS album, which includes Film Out, expected to be released on June 16…is entirely in Japanese.

I’d say that’s…not bad.

Here is the K-Pop Japanese track, Film Out

(Romanized)
Tantan to furitsumotta kioku no naka de
Kimi dake wo hiroi atsumete tsunagete
Heya juu ni utsushite nagame nagara
Komiageru itami de kimi wo tashikamete iru

Iggy Azalea, Tyga – Sip It

Yup, Iggy is back and she’s teaming up with Tyga on her newest release. I’m not gonna lie to you guys. This song is f*cking horrible. It’s like a Walmart brand of WAP. Iggy, you went away for a while…what made you think this was the song to come back with? Straight up trash.

Blonde, blonde, blonde, blonde, blonde, Richard on my arm
Rappers in my phone, in my DM, won’t leave me alone
Blonde, blonde, blonde, blonde, hair thirty inches long
Boys on my d*ck, sip this p*ssy like it’s Styrofoam, ayy

Jane Handcock – Forgive Them

Sorry, Jane. I can’t forgive Iggy for that sack of sh*t she just dropped. But this song right here…is fire. This is Jane’s second release with Estabrook Road Records and this woman deserves more recognition in the R&B world.

Conclusion

Iggy Azalea still sucks.

There is much better music out there, so have a listen to Spotify’s weekly New Music Friday playlist right here:

New Music Friday!

Time to clock out for the weekend because it’s New Music Friday! We’ve got chart-topping stars AND indie/small label artists today!

Classic. Don’t do caffeine pills, kids.

Ariana Grande – Test Drive

Test Drive comes off of Ariana Grande‘s Positions Deluxe edition. It’s 1 of 5 new tracks on the album, and it stays with that promiscuous theme.

Sex. It is most definitely about sex.

As you could imagine, Ari stans are losing their minds on social media.

It’s even killing people with Asthma

Let’s go ahead and listen to what all the chaos is about.

Pull up, pull up on me, ayy-ayy
Might just recline the seat when I want it
Give you a set of keys ’cause you own it
Pull up, pull up on me, ayy-ayy
No second-guessing, checking the rearview
Ain’t looking back unless it’s right at you

The Fiasco – Played Me At My Own Game

In our latest Indie Artist Interview, I talked to Adam and Tim of The Fiasco ahead of their newest release. The 4-man alt-rock band from England gives off that original Warped Tour vibe, and I am here for it. Influenced by bands like The Offspring and All Time Low, you can understand why.

Played Me At My Own Game will smack you in the face with nostalgia. Be sure to check out the interview and follow these guys before they blow up.

You changed up all the rules
To make me the fool
And god knows
I had a close escape

24kGoldn – 3,2,1

Only 20-years-old, Golden Landis Von Jones has himself another hit. Coming off the massive success of his last chart-topping single, Mood, 24kGoldn might be trending on TikTok again soon.

TikTok and Mood gave us this gem from @jrzl: Asian Mood.

The young 24kGoldn has a bright future ahead of him. Here’s his new single, 3,2,1.

3 sides to the story
Yours and mine and the god damn truth girl
2 lies that you told me
Said you love then you hate me I don’t know what to do girl
But 1 thang for sure
You can back that ass up n baby I want more

Trippie Redd, Travis Barker, Machine Gun Kelly, blackbear – PILL BREAKER 

This is an interesting collaboration that is blending the genres of hip-hop and rock together. Trippie Redd teamed up with former Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker, to produce this fusion album, NEON SHARK vs Pegasus.

Redd’s new album features collaborations with Chino Moreno of the Deftones, MGK, blackbear, Scarlrxd, and Zillakami.

This drug-infused love song slaps, and honestly…I’m digging the whole 40-track album so far.

There’s purple in my 7up
I’m hurtin’ this is not enough (I’m hurtin’ I can’t fix it though)
I ate a Percocet for lunch (pop that perky yea)
I’m in heaven off this angel dust

Jane Handcock – Ion Like Dat

Introducing: Estabrook Road Records artist, Jane Handcock. The Oakland-born R&B singer-songwriter is coming in hot and she’s ready to make herself known. She has worked with some big names as a songwriter, including Kelly Rowland (who also has a new track out today,) Dr Dre, Ma$e, and producer Teddy Riley.

Jason Payne, CEO of Estabrook Road Records is putting Jane in the spotlight with her new single, Ion Like Dat.

“We just dropped Jane Handcock’s first single with us and I have to say, there’s a lot of excitement and buzz going on with this track. Jane is definitely a new artist on the rise and we are grateful to be apart of this journey with her.” Payne said.

Ion Like Dat is now available on all streaming platforms, and she will surely be hitting radio stations near you very soon!

That’ll do it for this week’s New Music Friday! For more new music from Chris Brown, Conan Gray, Lil Yachty, Luis Fonsi, and much more, listen to Spotify‘s New Music Friday playlist right here.
