Blood Orange


Blood Orange, H.E.R., The Internet, Ella Mai


There is so much new music out this summer it's hard to keep up! This week I've been listening to so much goodness. Blood Orange's new album "Negro Swan" is fantastic; I'm totally feeling the emphasis on self-awareness, which seems relevant for everyone right now. I also love the new album "I Used to Know Her: The Prelude" from H.E.R.— "Lost Souls" with D.J. Scratch is amazing, as is "Against Me" (the instrumentals remind me a lot of 6LACK). Also solid is her track with Bryson Tiller called "Could've Been."

Of course, The Internet's new album "Hive Mind" is just as amazing as their previous. I've had "Hold On" on repeat for the past two weeks— Syd's voice just floats.

If you haven't listened to her yet, Ella Mai is a queen and has had some lovely tracks the past couple of years. Check out "Trip," released earlier this month, or "Boo'd Up," "Naked," and 2016's "She Don't (feat Ty Dolla $Ign)." There's also a fun superbass remix of "Boo'd Up" with Nicki Minaj (yass!) and Quavo
