Disco, love making and a touch of classic songwriting - this week took things back to basics.
Justice - Randy
Following Safe And Sound, Justice have dropped another new track and finally let us know that they're delivering a new album this year. The album is called Woman, the new song is called Randy and quite frankly, we're shaking with excitement. Randy is a beefy, sparkly, disco tuuuuunnnnnneeee that proves Justice are bringing their A game once again. Once you start grooving to this, you'll barely notice nearly seven minutes have passed when it ends.
Mac Miller - God Is Fair, Sexy, Nasty
Mac Miller's The Divine Feminine is out today and he's hooked up once again with Kendrick Lamar for the final track on the album God Is Fair, Sexy, Nasty. In line with the rest of the album it's a sensual song complete with a perfect Lamar hook and some pretty sexy piano work. Dang! Who knew that Mac was the ultimate Mr. lover lover?
Jessie Reyez - Figures
Here's a new artist for you to get around. Toronto singer Jessie Reyez dropped Figures this week and it's going to be the song that brings her to the masses. Occupying the same sort of raw, R&B space as Bibi Bourelley and Kehlani, Reyez has a voice that could cut through a brick and a feel for personal lyrics like no other.
Raury - Butterfly
Raury's latest material is some of his most personal work ever and this latest drop Butterfly is no different. It's a solemn song that deals with lonliness and depression mixing Raury's unique voice with his soft but potent bars. There seems to be a depth to Raury's work now that he has missing in the past and everything coming out right now is captivating.
Tobias Jesso Jr. - Don't
Tobias Jesso Jr. released his debut album early last year and then penned Adele's When We Were Young, meaning he's a bit of a big deal right now. This one Don't is an unreleased track with rough around the edges production but Tobias' feel for a good ol' fashion melody shines through and his voice sounds rad. You don't find many class songwriter like Tobias around anymore which is why he's cutting through - eloquent, simple and pure.
