KEVIN ABSTRACT RELEASES ARIZONA BABY
While we wait for new releases from Brockhampton, the boyband’s mastermind, Kevin Abstract, dropped a short EP. At just under nine minutes, ARIZONA Baby is a blend of Kevin’s influences. Experimental at times, the project explores hip-hop, indie rock, pop, jazz and rock. According to his Instagram, the rest of the project will come in the following weeks. With more on the way, we’ll see where Kevin takes his musical endeavors.
THE OXNARD FOLLOW-UP IS HERE
MAXO KREAM’S “MEET AGAIN”
While he’s been quiet for most of 2019, it by no means is a sign of him slowing down. The Houston native steps up his visual game to deliver a quality video for his quality song, “Meet Again.” As far as tracks go, it is a bit more sentimental than a track like “Big Worm,” but it definitely isn’t one to sleep on.
JADEN SMITH DROPS “SOHO”
Jaden Smith is a name that if you looked back in 2012 at, you’d probably laugh at when thinking about it being in hip-hop. However, times have changed and he has managed to become a name that represents the youth in the genre. Although, Jaden’s integration into hip-hop has been one without bumps. His new track, “SOHO,” is proof that he is an acquired taste, but is that good or bad? Well, that is something for you as the listener to decide. The video isn’t that impressive, but if Jaden is how you get by, feel free to get your fix below.
LIL NAS X’S “OLD TOWN ROAD” IS BIGGER THAN YOU THINK
You thought On Wax was going to let this go? Nope. Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” is apparently on a collision course with Drake’s single-week streaming record. Originally for Drake’s “God’s Plan” with 127,000, Lil Nas X is creeping up with 125,000. Get your popcorn cause this might be something you don’t want to miss.
In addition, Genius dropped the lyrics that are verified for this track.
SNOW THA PRODUCT’S “SAY BITCH”
In an era where female artists are coming for the thrown, names besides Cardi B — like Rico Nasty, Queen Key, and Saweetie — this female artist, Snow Tha Product, has arrived ready to snatch the crown. Her track, “Say Bitch,” isn’t entirely fresh, but the energy for it is something that you cannot ignore.
070 SHAKE DROPS 2 SINGLES
