Music You Should Know - Adding R&B into the Mix!

Driven by Napoli Motors

it was a big week for Hip Hop and R&B!

 

The Weeknd - Starboy

It's ABOUT TIME the Weeknd came out with something new and he brought Daft Punk with him!  But let's be real here... it's hard to understand what Starboy is even about!  But you know what, it doesn't really matter, because this song is catchy as heck. 

Starboy is the lead single off his new studio album under the same name, and it challenges everything we have come to expect from The Weeknd.  He challenges the celebrity lifestyle, the scandal, and grandeur of living everyting about yourself out in the limelight.  However, he also exposes just how fragile celebrities may be and how temporary the limelight can be.

 

 

Maroon 5 ft. Kendrick Lamar - Don't Wanna Know

If you weren't jumping for joy at the annoucement of new Maroon 5 music... we can't be friends.  I swear, these guys are like the human personification of fine wine - they only get better with age.  By constantly reinventing their sound and lyric progression, Maroon 5 continues to remain fresh in a industry that can grow stale very fast.

But these guys have figured out how to give their music lasting power without keeping to the same old song and dance.  These guys incorporated a "less is more" approach to this song, by subduing a lot of their vocal range to hit more staccato notes and leave plenty of room for Kendrick's freestyling.

 Also, they make fun of Pokemon Go in this song.  What's not to love about it?
