This week we have MY FAVOURITE BAND and confirmation that this year we are all dying our hair black and writing our own blink-182 songs. 2007 called, and my release radar answered.
Artists that obviously grew up listening to blink: 6
Blatant emo references: 2
Faith in music this year: infinite
Missing You - girlfriends - GIRLFRIENDS IS THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD. girlfriends is my favourite band. girlfriends can do so wrong. They are so good that this isn't even the best song they released this week.
Sledgehammer - nothing,nowhere. - This is exactly what I want from nothing,nowhere. Wasn't feeling the last track that much, but I love this one. Big fan.
Sunshine Men - Remastered 2021 - Freestyle Fellowship - Love the track, hate that it's a Release Radar threepeat.
He's My Demon - Head Smashed, The Offspring, Sum 41, Bad Religion - haha wow this is bad. Is that beat ever going to drop? Gonna have to ask someone that listened past 50 SECONDS!!! CMON DUDES!!!
C' Est Paé Je Suis Fort - Black Star - hidden
Emo Love - YoungBoy Never Broke Again - I like YoungBoy NBA. Interesting that emo is getting referenced into trap/pop/hiphop. I'm here for it.
BAND$ - Arizona Zervas - Big Arizona Zervas fan. This track delivered. Last track was sick too. Check out his cameo video on Sueco's tiktok feed.
emo girl (feat. WILLOW) - Machine Gun Kelly, WILLOW - Could have been the main event but this week is too stacked. Wouldn't be surprised if this track didn't make the record, but this feels like an obvious case of building the hype for a record without burning a marquee single.
Cigarettes - Juice WRLD - I pay attention to Juice WRLD but I wouldn't say I'm a big, big fan. Never gonna skip it tho. Vibing.
Scared Money - YG, J. Cole, Moneybagg Yo - Hard beat, feeling it.
Don't Play That - E King Von, 21 Savage - I couldn't remember this song on the second listen.
HANDSOMER - Russ - I mean, tell me the lie in these lyrics.
Tomorrow - John Legend, Nas, Florian Picasso - Skip. Wasn't sure where this was going and wasn't sticking around to find out.
Do We Have A Problem? - Nicki Minaj, Lil Baby - The kind of stuff I'm zoning out on but not skipping.
a woman is a god - BIA Remix - Tommy Genesis, BIA - Maybe the original is good? This remix isn't.
Showgirls - 12AM, Tyla Yaweh, Pressa - 808 hit hard. That's not difficult to do. Nicest thing I can say about this track.
Doja - $NOT, A$AP Rocky - Generally like A$AP. My takeaway from this is holy fuck has doja cat ever made its way into the zeitgeist.
I HATE ME TOO - AS IT IS - So we're all just writing our own blink-182 songs for 2022? I'm here for it.
life is underrated - Jeris Johnson - this song is not underrated.
abcdefu - Our Last Night - Token pseudo-metalcore cover of a pop song. If you're gonna use that much riffage, why not just change the lyrics and have your own song? Cause then I would have never gotten it on my release radar? Oh.
Freaks & Geeks - Oliver Tree - Where does spotify get off thinking I'm the type of lame indie kid that would accept this song?
Neighbors Know My Name - 2 Chainz - #gangsta
she's all i wanna be - Tate McRae - ...when you get a blackbear feature, you get on my release radar.
Gave Up On Love - YSN Fab - not a skipper but not a saver
Better Days (NEIKED x Mae Muller x J B..) - NEIKED, Mae Muller, J Balvin, Polo G - Needs more features.
FWMGAB (Remix) (feat. Moneybagg Yo) - French Montana, Moneybagg Yo - Damn, a filter sweep to start the song? Still innovating music in 2022.
Trap Phone - NLE Choppa - Big 2015 vibes.
Everything Relates - Comeback Kid, JJ - RR threepeat.
Political Fight Music - THE 7/777 PROJECT, Public Enemy, Anlive - Another RR threepeat (I think?) Sucks to end on a skip.
