The best and brightest of this past week in music, as well as a throwback track! Hopefully you can bump these tracks on your way to work to brighten up your Monday mornings. This week we have new music from Big Sean, Travis Scott, Meek Mill and more!
After announcing the release of his upcoming album, Big Sean just shocked the world- twice. After teasing the release on on his Snapchat, Sean dropped the second single for Dark Sky Paradise, ‘Blessings’, following his hit single ‘IDFWU’. The track features Drake on hook and guest verse duty with production from OVO power producers Boi-1da and Vinlyz. And to surprise us all, Kanye appears unexpectedly at the end to drop a verse, with topics ranging from him sending Snapchat pictures to his daughter being homeschooled.
Listen to Meek Mill’s new Big Sean and A$AP Ferg collaboration titled ‘B-Boy’. This song and video were both recorded last year, but now we finally have them both.
About an hour after his new tour dates with Young Thug and Metro Boomin were revealed, G.O.O.D.
