Richest Tracks of the Week (May 28)

“Need It” – Migos, YoungBoy Never Broke Again

There is a first for everything, and this is genuinely the first positive I have ever given any song with YoungBoy Never Broke Again on it. I love the throwback Southern hip-hop flare going on, and the seamless transition between YoungBoy and all three members of Migos. It’s a really catchy track.

“CUTIE PIE!” – JPEGMAFIA

Peggy has been on fire ever since 2018’s Veteran. There has really been a track that dissatisfies me. The singles that he has released so far in 2020 have all been killers, and “CUTIE PIE!” is no different. I love the fast-paced boom bap instrumental. While he is monotone on the track, there is something so captivating and interesting about his flow that it makes up for it.

“This Is What They Say” – Carly Rae Jepsen

Welcome back Carly Rae Jepsen into my music-listening catalog. I tuned her out awhile back because “Call Me Maybe” is one of my least favorite songs of the 2010s, but I am always willing to give an artist a second try if they give me a reason. Jepsen did here, and I really love this piece of synth-pop.

“Can’t Fight” – Lianne La Havas

Lianne is not missing with her teaser tracks to her self-titled record coming out soon. I cannot stress how excited I am to review this project. It’s groovier than “Paper Thin”, but still has the sweet, soulful bliss that comes with what one would expect with her music.

“Cut Me” – Moses Sumney

Sumney is one of the more interesting and unique soul artists out there. The registers where he can take his voice are just incredible. I love the deep synths and the horns that carry the instrumentals on this track. I plan on reviewing his recently released album soon.
