After my friend gave ASAP Rocky’s mixtape/album a glowing review, I decided to download it and see what all the hype was about.

The Zone – The Weeknd (feat. Drake)

19 Aug

Serious apologies about the lack of recent posting. I had to spend the night in the airport, Henry is travelling all over Asia, and Michael and Luke are also caught up. Here’s a treat for you though. Since I last wrote about The Weeknd, his popularity has increased by a huge amount. Drake also seems to have adopted him as a personal favorite. The Zone comes off of The Weeknd’s official mixtape release, entitled Thursday. Take a listen.

Drake’s latest releases (Marvin’s Room & Trust Issues) fit perfectly with the sound that The Weeknd has been producing all along, and in my opinion, the two voices blend together really well on this track. It’s a treat that the whole thing is being given away completely for free. Really brightened up my day, and hopefully it will do the same for you.

In The Dark – JoJo

13 Sep

Okay, before you close your window because you see a post about a song by JoJo, I think I at least deserve a chance to explain myself. Yes, when she was around thirteen years old I thought JoJo was awful. Both her self-titled album in 2004, and her second release, The High Road in 2006 were things I tried to stay as far away from as possible (which was hard- she sold a lot of albums). But, and it’s a big ‘but’, JoJo’s new mixtape has just been released, and we have to admit that this song demonstrates a totally different artist. It’s much less trashy, and actually pretty good in my opinion.

There’s a big beat in this song, and although I think perhaps she could have done a little bit better with the lyrics, I actually (and it’s hard to say this without imagining a lot of people laughing at me) like it. You can be a fan of hers or not, but there’s no denying that JoJo has a great voice. Make of it what you will, and download the whole mixtape from her bandcamp page here. Or just get the song here.
