Aston Fenly - Pop & Reload feat. Paris Shadows

Not too long ago, Matthew Belter asked me to check out one of Ashton Fenly's songs and at the time I was really getting into the emo rap genre of music. I'm really impressed with this song and video. I was excited to review the new video for pop and a reload because I knew it was going to be good. As a film grad, I am impressed with the way they include very avent-garde type film elements. It really does the song well. Not to mention the words he is singing mesh so well with what you see. Additionally, the Paris Shadows feature was sick.

Ashton has a talent for keeping things interesting from what I've seen and heard. There is a mystery here and he wants us to try to figure it out for ourselves. It's unique and will set him apart from the rest. Really excited about this release and can't wait to jam this song on repeat, as I have been since first hearing it. Keep it up Aston, you're going places! Hunnypot approved!

    Zeus Rebel Waters - "LUV" I have a soft spot in my heart for women on the pole, but an even softer spot for Zeus Rebel Waters. Tuning his usual rasp toward the traditional trap beat, the one word that can describe his 2020 single “Luv” love is, “classic”. The simplicity of the song’s intention… Read more

  • SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX"
    SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX" Country has long been a polarizing, impenetrable genre subjugated to the “but..” of the sentence, “I listen to everything,”. In a time where cross-pollination is the only way to stay current, it's also a genre that has maintained its air of sovereignty, managing to slyly subvert the popsphere by pivoting… Read more

    MILA SMITH - LIARS & FAKES It can take some people a lifetime to learn how to spot the fakers, but at only sixteen Mila Smith has turned her bad friend blues into a banger. “Liars & Fakes”, the debut single from the South African songstress, is a soulful bop descended from disco edits of yore,… Read more

    XHAANIA - PULL UP The last party you attended may feel like a midday dream from a far off time when feeling yourself included nails done, hair done and everything did.
