Thru Your Phone By Cardi B (available through amazon.com)
‘Thru your phone’ is the second to the last track of Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy album. In this track she combines two different modes of tender vulnerability and righteous invincibility. This is a song about infidelity and unfaithfulness that shows the mixed emotion of betrayal. In one of the verses she is threatening to call your mum, smash your TV from Best Buy, and “make a bowl of cereal with a teaspoon of bleach”. But in the chorus she uses a more melancholy tone saying “she went through your, discovered you were unfaithful and how it is killing her”.
Made Men By Migos (available through amazon.com)
On the anniversary of their groundbreaking major label debut they released ‘Culture II’. They didn’t hold back anything releasing this album. The album comprises of massive 24 songs, but the obvious standout tracks are ‘Stir Fry’ which came out last year and ‘Made Men’. The beat in Made Men is a glittering and classic late night boast. They make use of some phrases from the classic American mafia, they brag in the first verse, “Not Toby, but we slave for it, No Kunta Kinte, but we slave for it and I waited some days for it” in a radiant Roots reference.
Logout By Saba Feat. Chance The Rapper (available through amazon.com)
Chicago rapper Saba and Chance the Rapper have previously worked together on Saba’s Social Experiment album in which he featured Chance on almost all the tracks. The two great artists come together again on this soulful slice criticizing the use of social media. This should be a good song for those who recently deleted Facebook. Saba sings with the lyrics “I don’t want no autograph, I just want a follow back” mocking the obsession about the present selfie culture. This did not exactly paint the picture of the subject, but the approach they used in the song makes the track go down easy.
Bad Bad News By Leon Bridges (available through amazon.com)
In this track Leon Bridges reminds us of jazz, R and B, and Blues greats. He is establishing himself as a artist with the modern voice. He is not only in touch with past, but also with what is happening right now. This track is great blend of throwback vibes and present classics. ‘Bad Bad News’ is a combination of a lounge, a big bang number, with shouts and tender guitar solos. The track comes with message that you can get through anything if you have style and grace.

This didn’t stop there, as he continues to appear on more than a dozen tracks since the release of his album. Paak has now return with ‘Til It’s Over’, this is his first solo track since the release of Malibu. This track is a trippy and relaxed jam which contemplates originality and mortality.
