It’s finally here! Monsters around the world are relishing in Lady Gaga’s sixth studio album Chromatica. Featuring K-pop collective BLACKPINK, the legendary Elton John and our favourite weather girl Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga displays soaring vocals with electronic productions for a fun-filled album. Standout tune “Sour Candy” featuring BLACKPINK, transports us to club quarantine and we’re obsessed.
Stormzy, Rosalía and Lady Gaga bring the heat to this week’s playlist.
Lady Gaga – Chromatica
Rosalía ft Travis Scott – “TKN”
After her highly addictive remix for “Highest In The Room”, Spanish queen Rosalía joins forces yet again with ASTROWORLD rapper Travis Scott. Sung both in English and Spanish, the reggaeton-infused tune has us moving our hips in ways we didn’t know possible and learning the infectious dance routine. The collaboration is just what we needed to get us in the mood for the weekend.
Tion Wayne X Dutchavelli X Stormzy – “I Dunno”
Stormzy is back with a bang! Joining forces with “Keisha Becky” rapper Tion Wayne and Steff London’s younger brother and rising star Dutchavelli, the trio go bar for bar in this drill hit with fierce wordplay and punching metaphors. This is the first time all three artists have jumped on a track together and we need more.
Juls + Sango – “Angele Ni Fie”
One of Afrobeat’s most prolific creatives joins forces with eclectic DJ Sango for a feel-good record. With playful vocal samples and elements of Amapiano, Juls and Sango blend both of their musical influences for a timeless tune – perfect to sit out in the sun and relax with.
Ora Violet – “Feel The Same”
Delivering fresh rock’n’roll is multi-instrumentalist production duo Ora Violet. The modern-day rock production duo consisting of Black Tiles and guitarist Nick Ferman, take us back to the days of Guns N’ Roses and The Rolling Stones with this punk tune, delivering epic guitar rhythms and intense drums. Plug in your headphones and rock out.
Baker Grace – “Bottle of Wine”
The song title already had us sold on the tune. Giving us Lana Del Rey vibes is 19-year-old singer-songwriter, Baker Grace. With a reggae-influenced production, “Bottle Of Wine” has us in love with Grace’s sugary sweet vocals and dreamy vibe. The tune is a first from her upcoming sophomore EP “Yourz Truly” and we can’t wait to hear more.
Saint Reymond – “Right Way Round”
Sweeping our speakers with instant hot weather vibes to match the sunshine outside is Nottingham singer-songwriter Saint Raymond with his latest track “Right Way Round”. Trickling with uplifting synths and a catchy hook, the indie-pop bop explores those all too familiar feelings of self-doubt and anxiety that we all experience.
Speaking on the track, Saint Raymond explains: “‘Right Way Round’ is about feeling like you’re on the outside, like you’re floating through life and it’s making you feel alone. But the more you scratch the surface and look around you, realise that there’s a load of us who feel like we’re different, on the outside and unsure of the future and that there’s beauty in that.”
