As well as some seriously heavy tunes, one of the most highly anticipated albums of the last couple of years dropped this month. Check out what’s been keeping our ear drums busy for the past 30 days:
Kaytranada – GLOWED UP
We’ve been big fans of Kaytranada since he first released his At All/Hilarity Duff EP back in 2015. Since working with The Internet and Freddie Gibbs, the young Canadian producer has quickly gone from zero to one hundred, performing at festivals all over the world and announcing a debut album, 99.9%.
Taken from the upcoming LP and featuring Anderson Paak on vocals, ‘GLOWED UP’ is a catchy tune that’s guaranteed to make your summer evenings playlist.
Skepta – Man
Skepta’s debut, Konnichiwa, has been spoken about for as long as most of us can remember, but it’s only just recently that it’s started to become a reality. April saw Skeppy release the artwork and tracklist for Konnichiwa, along with an all new track, ‘Man’.
Featuring a Queens Of The Stone Age sample and the already legendary line “I don’t know why man’s calling me family all of a sudden. My mum don’t know your mum, stop telling man you’re my cousin!”, ‘Man’ is everything we’ve come to expect from the grand master of grime.
Stormzy - Scary
Landing just towards the end of the month, we were all over ‘Scary’ the second it dropped. With a video featuring some seriously dark imagery, ‘Scary’ lives up to its name, seeing Stormzy spit some angry bars over an appropriately spooky beat.
With hints at his upcoming debut album, ‘Scary’ is bound to get fans of Big Mike pumped for what’s next.
Drake – Views From The 6
You’ve gotta save the best ‘til last, so we’ll end this month’s Low Jams on the massively hyped fourth studio album from the one and only Drake.
A 20 track LP, it’s more of a chilled direction than we were expecting, toning things down from the high energy of If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, with Drizzy swapping rapping for singing more than we’re used to. Just like Nothing Was The Same, Views From The 6 has some weighty features including Rihanna, Jay Z, Kanye West and Future, with ‘One Dance’, ‘Grammys’ and ‘Controlla’ being standout tracks.
