Need It (single) Migos
Per Rap Up:
Offset, Quavo, and Takeoff kick off Memorial Day weekend with their new single “Need It.” The Atlanta trio calls on YoungBoy Never Broke Again for the BuddahBlessThisBeat-produced track, which samples “Get In My Car” off 50 Cent’s 2005 album The Massacre.
Rain On Me (single) Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande
Per Rolling Stone:
On the new track the pair take turns with their verses along with a call-and-response exchange during the track. Lady Gaga sets the tone. “I never asked for the rainfall,” she sings, but still, “It’s coming down on me.” Both singers tout the rejuvenating aspects of the situation, despite the metaphorical bad weather sentiments. “Gotta live my truth, Not keep it bottled in/So I don’t lose my mind, baby,” Grande sings over handclapped beats. After exchanging lines, the pair euphorically sing together: “I’ll never be troubled/At least I’m alive/Rain on me, rain, rain/Rain on me.”
6 Pack – Florida Georgia Line
Per The Music Universe:
Tapping a refreshing sense of in-the-moment optimism despite uncertain times, FGL teamed up with co-producer Corey Crowder for a variety of new country jams. The duo matches trailblazing sonics with uplifting themes and acclaimed lyrical prowess, as they begin their next creative chapter. From party-thumping anthems filled with cans-up twang, to gratitude-building ballads, its assortment of flavors is perfect for summer and served up with an edgy, carpe diem-style twist.
No Dream – Jeff Rosenstock
The album is Rosenstock’s fourth as a solo artist. He recorded it in February 2020 at Atomic Garden Recording Studios in Oakland. Jack Shirley produced ‘NO DREAM,’ as he has for all of Rosenstock’s studio albums. Rosenstock recorded the album with his long-serving backing band, Death Rosenstock.
