Lucky Daye Gets Left “On Read”

Lucky Daye and the UK’s Tiana Major9 gift us with an exciting R&B single. Daye is one of the new faces of R&B, offering his sweet, sultry vocals to any song he blesses the track. Tiana Major9 is on her way to the top of everyone’s search bar. The 20 year-old hails from Newham, England and draws influence from Jazz music and Lauryn Hill. Check out her interview with Flaunt Mag here to learn about our good sis. On Read is the classic battle of the sexes record.

Fear the Black Swan, Angeles Delivers a Message

The Black Swan Phenomena:

is an unpredictable or unforeseen event that is beyond what is normally expected of a situation and has potentially severe consequences. Black swan events are characterized by their extreme rarity, severe impact, and the widespread insistence they were obvious in hindsight.

The reworked version of The Pharcyde’s Runnin’ beat is perfection. Angeles paints vivid imagery with his words. Too many bars to quote, I’d be writing the entire song in this article. He begins by declaring change is coming and makes you a believer by the end of the song. Black Swan is a double entrendre filled allegory. Angeles is simultaneously nostalgic and futuristic. He covers all of Hip-Hop’s bases. Paying homage to music that came before you, being inventive, and being yourself. In a world full of cookie cutter artists, Angeles is a promising breath of fresh air.

Check out Black Swan above and let me know if you’re feeling what I’m feeling below in the comments.

Flo Milli’s Millennial Knock to Misogyny

2020 breakout artist Flo Milli is putting on for ‘Bama, and not letting up! Quit witted bars run rampant in her arsenal. The 21-year old artist rips this Kenny Beats production.

“You can’t hate on pxssy if it rule the planet, I just came in the game and I’m doing damage.”

A bold declaration, that is 100% true. Flo Milli discusses double standards and patriarchy on “Roaring 20s“. This track is reminiscent of Beyoncé’sIf I Was a Boy” and Ciara’sLike a Boy,” not sonically, but in the message. All are women’s anthems to put the illogical actions of men on blast. Using typical male jargon to taunt our counterparts, Flo Milli is sure to hit a few nerves with this wrecking ball of a record.
