It’s been a while, but we’re back again with our #FireFridayPlaylist. Just in time for Fall. This week’s playlist is filled with nothing but straight heat…but do you expect anything less? Lil Uzi Vert’s Team Rocket gets a remix while Travis Scott finds his balance in “Through the Late Night”. Got any suggestions on what songs should be featured next week? Or do you simply want the chance to be featured? Tweet us at @AboveAverageHH, we’ll be sure to check out your link or suggestion!
Dread feat Eric Bellinger – Like Me
“Like Me” by artist Dread is simply infectious. Dread’s relaxed delivery is a nice contrast to the track’s up-tempo production. There’s no arguing that this record will keep your head bobbing throughout the song’s entirety.
Wil Akogu feat MikeWavvs – Fade To Black
Fade to Black is a little bit of everything – soul, rap, and even a little alternative rock. Akogu’s self-awareness is quite enviable at only 21 years old, and this awareness presents itself in his lyrics. MikeWavvs vocals on the outro has us wondering if there will be a continuation of “Fade To Black”…we certainly hope so.
TOKiMONSTA – Team Rocket (TOKiMONSTA Remix)
Lil Uzi Vert’s “Team Rocket” is transformed into a highly textured and layered production by L.A based producer TOkiMONSTA. From the very beginning, the bold production builds up in anticipation, becoming more bold and powerful as the song progresses. The only word to describe this song is just…insane.
Rascal – Lovely
Rascal proves himself to be a musical genius on “Lovely”. Rascal channels the essence of traditional R&B by sampling Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” yet remaining youthful and modern by intricate drum patterns and unexpected beat drops. In fact, we’re pretty sure this is what Heaven sounds like…or at least pretty close to it.
Travis Scott Feat Kid Cudi – Through The Late Night
Through the Late Night is arguably one of the best songs on Birds In the Trap Sing McKnight. The production exudes a certain darkness that almost feels tangible. Synths, drums, and distorted vocals intricately work together to create a truly brilliant masterpiece.
