It’s just one of those things where we’re not exactly sure what it is, but we still love it anyways. I’ve been waking up to this song for the last week and a half or so and only just added it to my Spotify playlists tonight. For the past few summers, my coworker and I are always trying to figure out what the song of the summer is going to be. I thought it was going to be “One Dance,” but this jam feels like a better fit maybe?
Which do we prefer… Tory or Drake?!
We call this the baby maker game changer because Miguel is one of our all-time favorite singers and his lyrics are so smooth and so very steamy. This track, in particular, is just everything you’ve ever wanted in a hook-up track. We got you. It’s a little different to be picking this song on a Sunday at 8AM, but we’ve been saving this one for ya!
So here’s the thing, when I first heard Selena Gomez’s single “Kill Em With Kindness,” I was pretty much over it. I couldn’t get into it, I didn’t want to listen to it on the radio, I never wanted to hear the song if it were up to me. But when I heard that River Tiber decided to remix it and slow it down a bit, I thought – maybeeeeee I can give this a try. Sure enough, it felt like a completely different song – one that I would actually like to listen to on the reg. I can’t embed it here, but you can listen to it over at The Fader.
We haven’t heard from Frank Ocean in awhile and the last time we did talk about him on Yow Yow! or our Twitter, it was because we wanted him to finish delivering on his album that he promised us. When I read this letter and I think about my thoughts towards that… it seems kind of selfish because this response that he wrote about Orlando is much more powerful and makes the need for his album feel small and significant. I’ve always admired Frank not only for his music, but because of how I felt his music spoke to us. His songs are still some of my favorites and this letter just solidifies how impactful his voice can be irl in addition to his lyrics. Thank you, Frank.
New York is getting another new music festival!
I discovered today that I actually haven’t listened to any music by Vince Staples, which is surprising to me because you would think that we would have crossed paths already. I’ve always loved The Fader though and actually most music publications for that matter because there are so many places that do artist profiles really well and they are definitely one of them. I was completely into this profile of Vince Staples and found myself enjoying it a lot – so much that I had to excessively tweet about it twice. Maybe a little overkill, but just trying to get a serious point across y’all! In addition to the content of this profile, the editorial spread is pretty good also so we’re going to include that for you today too.
This is the greatest thing that I’ve heard all week. That cover photo, that background music, the sax solo! If only we could go back in time…
I’ve listened to this song every morning for the past week on my commute to work and nothing gets me more fired up than listening to this bop right here.
