PAUSE Picks: New Music Friday

By July 24, 2020Fashion News, Music

Happy Friday! It's your chance to deep dive into our freshest selection of new music this Friday as we offer you the latest tracks you need in your rotation.

J COLE – THE CLIMB BACK

He’s back! This time, J Cole delivers a double-whammy of releases titled ‘Lion King on Ice’ and this self-produced cut ‘The Climb Back’. Taken from his upcoming album ‘The Fall Off’ – teased from his ‘1985’ track off his album prior – is set to release sometime in the future.

Securing the beat so effortlessly, Cole also lumbers into a more melodic tone as he approaches the chorus. The two singles feature on his latest EP ‘Lewis Street’.

HEADIE ONE X DRAKE – ONLY YOU FREESTYLE

Told you so! The gift that keeps on giving is Drake. This time, tapping in Tottenham drill artist Headie One, the transatlantic collaboration remains on British turf as Drake utilises both a Drill, Grime and bilingual tone in their new freestyle ‘Only You’.

Drake comes clean with the bars, majestically displaying his musical dexterity through his use of different dialects and flows in order to match up to Headie’s monarchial stance in the drill scene.

THE WEEKND – SNOWCHILD

It’s almost as if we’ve travelled back in time, retracing our steps into the ‘House Of Balloons’ era. The Weeknd delivers nostalgic animated visuals for his latest offering titled ‘Snowchild’.

Revisiting his past of alcohol, drugs and women, it’s not only experiences he is familiarised with, it’s himself. The four-minute video transforms into each persona he’s portrayed throughout his life as an artist, a beautifully, wistful evolution.

TOLANI – BADMAN

Rising Nigerian singer Tolani offers a bubbling afro-pop single titled ‘Badman’.

Inspired by her multicultural upbringing, the Lagos-born, London-bred artist laces together an effortless flow infused with a mellow RnB and Afrobeat production. Following up from her previous single ‘Ba Mi Lo’, which racked up an impressive amount of streams, she is eager to make summer hers.

GEOVARN – STILL MEAN

Employing a smooth, old-school, RnB feel to his latest instalment, British singer, writer and producer Geovarn comes through with his debut release of the year ‘Still Mean’.

Sampling Dr. Dre-sampling instrumental courtesy of London producer Happi, the combination of playful punchlines and smooth production underpins his mark in music.

BLUEFACE ft. SNOOP DOGG – RESPECT MY CRYPPIN (REMIX)

Kicking things off with ‘Respect My Cryppin’ remix video with Snoop Dogg, ahead of the release of his album ‘Famous Cryp Reloaded’, LA rapper Blueface continues his impeccable work rate with an animated cut.

Rising to the scene in 2018 with smash hit ‘Thotiana’, his recent ventures also include collaborations with Moneybagg Yo, YG, Cardi B and A Boogie wit Da Hoodie.

LOSKI x MIZORMAC – ON ME

Harlem Spartans’ Loski and Mizormac reunite for their latest track ‘On Me’.

Articulating street tales utilising their distinctive flow as they do so well, the drill-duo go back to back over a recurring pattern, boasting artistic visuals, accredited to Stefano Moses.

Rigel Gemini, Plastique Tiara, Heidi N Closet and Ocean Kelly – Gorgeois

An opulently star-studded line up sees Rigel Gemini, Plastique Tiara, Heidi N Closet and Ocean Kelly join forces for truly ‘Gorgeois’ visual treatment.

Serving looks, vibes and all things jaw-dropping, you don’t want to miss out on what is considered a ‘fashion fantasy’ of a music video.
