On his new album Honestly, Nevermind he’s most at ease on “Falling Back,” where his rapturing falsetto is catchy and the delicate, ambient aura of the beat attaches you like smelling a really promising food cooking.
Can Arthur Miguel step up to the plate and he belongs with the city pop princes of the moment? Only time will tell, but this track is a solid way to zag while everybody's zigging.
Has that Baz Luhrman Romeo+Juliet and "Lovefool" by The Cardigans vibes. The chorus is exquisitely funky and dancey. Rico Blanco did an incredible job producing and arranging this, but our prom queen Maris shines through on this track the most.
The massive passion we’ve always come to expect of Calum’s vocals is back for this splendid track.
“Show me the ways to explore / Every day wanting more...” The jazzy, R&B-flavored track was produced by Ryan Tedder, Steven Franks, Lindgren, and Tommy Brown. When I played the intro, for a split second I thought I was listening to a Wu-Tang joint, sick af!

Here's a perfectly-executed and exquisite neo-soul and folk lullaby and love song.
A folky and sage-y rap song about the social injustices and ills around us. And that fiery blues-y guitar solos are fire too!
Lua$ is optimistic about the future, and seeing the infectious and foreboding beats on this one, we can understand why.
This is the track from Drake's latest album Honestly, Nevermind that has a collaborator, Atlanta-based rapper 21 Savage, and shifts the musical direction towards more sinister, jazz-influenced hip-hop.
You can consider this FKA twigs’ gift to sorrowful bad-asses.
