New Music Monday 12/5 – The Round-Up

Music

After holidays & finals, I find my way back to Monday. Thank goodness the show doesn’t stop & new music is constantly making it’s way out. The exciting part about this new week is that it also a new month… the last one of the year at that! Not only do we get to gear up for round 2 of holiday season, but we also can start rounding up the year. No better way to kick off the week with a hot new playlist. Considering I didn’t curate a playlist the last couple of weeks, I doubled back to a few new singles that dropped before turkey day, all while including a few hot new releases.

There’s truly been so much great music being released, it’s hard to sit still. Be sure to check out a couple of albums also kept in rotation; from Quin’s fantasy soul-tastic “Galactica”, to “Free 6lack” evoking “ex problems”, and the latest from mutifaceted Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, “Awaken, My Love!”

New Music Monday: 4/25

Music

Happy Monday! I know most of us are riding the somber waves of weekend, due to the passing of legendary artist Prince as well as a couple of other great prominent names. ( Wrestler-Chyna aka Joan Laurer & beloved mom from ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ Doris Roberts).

Aside from constant replaying of Purple rain & everything else Prince, I found time to bring you a few new tracks to get you through the week. This weeks playlist features a 420 release from none other than Ms. Erykah Badu herself with “I’ Been Goin Thru It All”, not to mention a smooth sound from a Raleigh, NC native CJ-Allen. I’ve also added the new EP “Drink Bleach” from LA artist Blackbear.

Dive in & get to vibin! Also, I’d be wrong if I didn’t direct you to check out Beyonce’s surprise release “Lemonade”. (Sorry is my JAM!) The surprise drop followed the premier of her HBO special that highlights beautiful visuals that you can find in the full length visual album. Head over to TIDAL to stream and/or download “Lemonade”. You can also purchase on iTunes.
