Lil Nas X is a star.

Not only is this a great pop rap album with some fantastic highlights, but it’s such a monumental and important moment and I’m so happy for Lil Nas X. He has proven himself to be more than a meme and a one-hit wonder, and has fully cemented himself in the music industry and it’s amazing to see.

Lil Nas X has had a great past few years, and I’ve been ridiculously excited for his debut album. Aside from his music, I think he’s one of the ... read more

While I do enjoy a lot of aspects of this album, and I do think it’s decent, it’s just not executed as well as it could be and ends up being kinda forgettable as a result.

Coming into this album, I had seen people say great things about her music, and I watched her win the Grammy for Album Of The Year, but I had never actually heard any of Kacey Musgraves’s music before. So while I wasn’t expecting this to be my favorite album of the year or anything, my expectations ... read more

The Melodic Blue is an incredibly flawed album, but I find Baby Keem and the music on here to be so entertaining, catchy, and personality-filled that it mostly makes up for it.

Baby Keem, Kendrick Lamar’s cousin, has been an artist I’ve been excited about for a while now. I really enjoyed his “DIE FOR MY BITCH” project, and I’ve liked a lot of his singles since. A few of them were pretty one dimensional however, and I felt that they showed some limitations ... read more

“Said that you a lesbian, girl me too, ayy” - Aubrey Drake Graham

Certified Lover Boy somehow manages to be 1 hour and 27 minutes of Drake’s most boring, lazy, and least interesting music ever. And unlike his other albums, there are like virtually no highlights that I can see myself going back to that make this listening experience any better.

I’m not like a big Drake fan or anything, but even in his lesser projects I usually find some enjoyment in them. But on ... read more

It’s so cool to see an album this universally loved and appreciated, and it’s definitely well deserved for Little Simz because this album is absolutely fantastic.

On “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert”, Little Simz comes through with one of the most cinematic and grand rap albums I’ve ever heard with some great performances from Simz and some insane production. No joke, the production on here is some of the best I’ve ever heard. It’s sometimes grand and ... read more

While I have never really been a Halsey fan, If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power has surprised me and is a really good change of pace that feels like the beginning of a new direction for Halsey and their artistry.

Coming into this I had only heard one full project from Halsey, which was the underwhelming “Manic”, but I had heard many of her popular songs over the years and just have never really been impressed with her music. But when they announced this album and I saw that Trent ... read more

This is actually pretty decent and enjoyable, but Belly just leaves so much to be desired as a rapper that this ends up being kinda carried by the production and the features.

The Weeknd is one of my favorite artists, but the artists signed to his label just don’t really impress me and I wish I liked them more. Belly doesn’t impress me, Black Atlass hasn’t impressed me all that much, and NAV is…NAV. The only artist on XO that I really liked was 88GLAM, and now they ... read more

Donda is a mess of an album with many flaws, and in many ways it feels less like of a cohesive album and more like a compilation, but the many great highlights and features mostly make up for these flaws and help make this a pretty great listening experience regardless.

THIS WAS FANTASTIC

This has everything I want from a Baby Keem song: insane production, multiple beat switches, and an absurd amount of personality and energy. Kendrick matches the energy and absolutely kills this as well. The music video is great too and fits the vibe perfectly. This is definitely the best Baby Keem song that I’ve heard, and it has me ridiculously excited for his upcoming project, and also obviously ridiculously excited for whatever Kendrick does next (even though I ... read more

This song is fantastic. The beat is great, Thug brings a lot of energy and personality, and the flows and the hook are ridiculously catchy. If Punk is as good as this and his NPR performance, it has the potential to be Thugger’s best album yet.

Solar Power is not a flashy and attention-demanding return for Lorde, but it is a mature and subtle one, and I think it’s the subtlety and the growth shown that’s really connecting with me. And I’m really glad I like it this much, as I was nervous I’d be disappointed because the early response was not as positive as I’d hoped. But I do really love Solar Power, and it definitely exceeded my expectations.

Despite it being a little long and one-dimensional, this is actually a pretty enjoyable project and probably Trippie’s best project in a while.

In the past I have liked some of Trippie’s music and thought he had potential, but he is usually pretty inconsistent and his recent projects have not been good. But after hearing the two singles for this album, I was fairly excited. “Miss The Rage” with Carti was a much better track, but both were in the same style and I was ... read more

Edit: I cant stop playing this. This is so good. Score moved up from 80 to 85.

On 333, Tinashe shows that she can sound great while doing a variety of different styles, and she provides some solid production, great vocals, and catchy hooks along the way.

I’ve really liked Tinashe’s music for a while now and thought she was was incredibly underrated, as she’s released many singles and projects that I’ve enjoyed over the years. But even though I have liked a lot of her ... read more

It’s not his best song or anything, but it is really catchy and enjoyable. I love the instrumental, and both Kevin & Ryan Beatty do a good job with it.

While Glaive still shows some potential on this project, the bland songwriting and overproduction cancels out his personality and talent.

I didn’t love “cypress grove”, but I saw Glaive’s potential on that project and really wanted to like his music going forward. I saw what he was doing on that project as a way to bring hyperpop into the mainstream in an interesting way and was excited to see what he would do next. And while this project may be trying very hard to make ... read more

Kings Disease II doesn’t blow me away or anything, but it is pretty great and arguably better than the first one, which is pretty impressive considering how soon this has come out after the first one.

I liked Kings Disease 1 a lot, but it was just a little forgettable. It had solid production from Hit-Boy, some great features, and solid performances from Nas, but I never really found myself returning to it. So news of a second Kings Disease coming out so soon after had me worried. But ... read more

While this didn’t immediately grab me, after multiple listens I can say that I do really like this a lot. It’s really catchy, and I really like what she’s saying in the song. I’m not sure whether I like it more than Solar Power, but it definitely is on that level and has made me even more excited for the album.

I do like the song, but I am pretty disappointed with this one.

I really enjoyed both Lizzo & Cardi B’s last albums, but this song just Isn’t hitting me like their best tracks have. Their personalities basically save this song because it’s really not all that interesting otherwise. The production is pretty solid, and Cardi B has a great verse, but the song just isn’t the smash I hoped it could be
