Richest Tracks of the Week (May 14th)

“Stuck with U” – Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber

Look, this is as corny as corny songs can get, but it is definitely a guilty pleasure. While quarantine pop hasn’t been as bloated as I thought it would be, which is good, there have been a plethora that have sucked. However, that is not the case with this track. Bieber’s feature is fine, and I love Grande’s voice when its mixed with a minimalist, soft instrumental.

“Righteous” – Juice WRLD

Finally getting to write about this song after it has been out for a couple of weeks. Easily, one of the better songs in his discography, and it is damn shame that he has left us. I’ve said before that Juice WRLD had one of the standout voices in mainstream rap, but tragically, we won’t be able to witness the potential growth.

“CRUMPY” – Nick Hakim

As simple as R&B needs to be. The genre doesn’t need artists having these compressed to hell, trap instrumentals when the songs should be slow and sensual. This track is easy on the ear with a sweet instrumental and intimate vocals from Hakim.

“Lose Your Love” – Dirty Projectors

Fun, upbeat little track right here. Love the vocal layering, and the piano chords strung across the track.

“Paper Thin” – Lianne La Havas

For the same reasons that I like the Nick Hakim song, its an intimate and soft piece of R&B music. Lianne’s vocals are beautiful, and the acoustic instrumentals are magnificent.
