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.
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.
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.
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.
Cami – Like The Wolves
Peter Runks – Here We Come
SanJardo B – After Hours
Tio – Live For The Moment
AOB Savage – 2 Times
Envee – Their Whispers
Jane Handcock – Forgive Them (Radio Edit)
Kloud X – Sanity
Glokkspinna – Mask On
Kidd Atari – Diva
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)
