It’s always interesting when the most popular rapper from a group goes solo for their first album. Quavo does just that with his new Quavo Huncho album you’re probably already spinning this weekend. I skipped ahead to the Drake feature (solid) and the Kid Cudi conclusion. As the bigger fan of Cudi amongst all the artists mentioned, I enjoyed his lyrics the most but the heavy autotune reminded me of Travis Scott (when usually when I listen to Travis, it’s the other way around.)
And oh yeah, that Madonna and Cardi B feature. Well, the “Champagne Rose” sample on the hook is kinda cool. Probs not for me but that song will appeal to the masses.
Majid Jordan release the new visuals for their Drake assisted single that dropped back in July. “My Love” has been heavy in my R&B rotation since then and I’m sure with the cool, colorful video above (featuring plenty of ladies too) there will be more people doing the same. I was waiting for a next-level concept with the video but it didn’t totally arrive, though I did like the revelatory zoom-out at the end. Definitely worth your eyes and ears all the way through so press play above as I continue to anticipate the OVO duo’s debut album.
Last night, Drake AND Jay Z were surprise guests for the last stop of J. Cole’s Forest Hills Tour. One video that’s sweeping the web today is a high quality capture of Drake’s cameo that featured “Know Yourself”, a small new set of bars spit a capella, and “Back 2 Back”. Diggin’ the energy and some of the creative, and personal lines telling more about what Drizzy is going through. I can’t relate, but dang, can only imagine, haha: “Paternity tests are from women I never slept with. I’m legally obligated if they request it.”
I mentioned Jay Z… just photos but here’s him on stage with both Cole and Big Sean.
