It’s an absolute debacle that this song wasn’t nominated for a Grammy. I think it’ll stand as The Weeknd’s biggest and best single, which is saying a lot because “The Hills” and “Starboy” were crazy af. Trust me, I know that electro-pop style of music is passé. But man. This is a mind-blowing song that will actually be very memorable as years pass. This comment sums it up perfectly:
I don’t care about the Grammys. But they are what they are. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of the underrated gems I’ve picked here was nominated for a Grammy. I held out on posting for a while, and this is one of the few great songs I’ve discovered and wanted to share from Spotify’s weekly New Music Friday playlist. Even without a video for it. Just a little proof that you can be sure to only find songs a cut above the rest here! Congratulations to this talented artist.
What a super smooth eclectic electronic R&B vibe. Superb musicianship by this newly-discovered artist, Phoenix Troy. I really enjoyed this song. Another hidden gem courtesy of Kitsuné Musique, one of the very best indie labels in the world.
These guys said it perfectly: Another French Club Banger. Impressed that Spotify added this to the American New Music Friday playlist. Been featuring select “Pop Urbaine” and French Trap hits here since ’17. And she is a superstar.
In all my years of listening to hundreds of thousands of songs, I have never heard anything like this. As described here, it’s Opera blended into Deep House. Majestic. Epic. Masterful… all are apt descriptions for this gem.
Birdman’s been good for a quality single every year or two for the past 20 years. I like his style. He’s not gonna out-rap anybody. But he doesn’t need to. He has one of the best ears for music in the history of Hip Hop. This is a dope chill low-key vibe.
