Though it has been extremely hot the last few weeks, this week marked the first official week of summer. That being said, there was a ton of solid releases from Vory’s Lost Souls project to Drake Honestly, Nevermind dropping a house album last week. This weekend looks to end on bit of a high note with releases from Chris Brown, Lupe Fiasco, and French Montana.
Chris Brown – Breezy
It has been three years since Chris Brown released an album. Well the wait is over as Chris Brown has release a 24 track album titled Breezy. The star studded album features Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Ella Mai, Bryson Tiller, Blxst, WizKid, and several others.
Breezy cements Chris Brown legacy and dominance as the most consistent hitmaker in the R&B genre for the last decade. There are plenty of songs on the album that should have you ready to hit the dance floor from “Need You Right Here,” “C.A.B. (Catch A Body),” “Call Me Every Day,” and “Closure”. It i
Lupe Fiasco – Drill
In a year that has seen several emcees drop projects, Lupe Fiasco steps back until the spotlight with his latest album Drill Music In Zion. The 10 song project which Lupe has stated is his Illmatic will have hip hop heads in the community listening attentively to the Chicago emcees lyrical word play. I must say that after my first listen that Drill Music in Zion will be a contender for one of the best hip hop albums this year.
Lupe has proven with his latest release that you should not leave him out of the subject of best emcees. With songs like “Kiosk”, “Naomi,” and “Ms Mural” Lupe shows his lyrical word play has not diminished. Whether you a fan of Lupe or not this album is going to be talked about amongst the talking heads the rest of the year.
Giveon – Give or Take
Giveon’s voice has caught the world by storm over the last few years. The Long Beach crooner whose stock rose with the releases of When It’s All Said and Done (2021) and Take Time (2020), which featured his popular hit “Heart Break Anniversary” has released his debut album Give or Take. The album is 15 tracks and comes in around 45 minutes of play time explores Giveon’s journeys of love and heartbreak.
If you are a fan of Giveon’s prior work then you will enjoy his latest release. From the boisterous voice of Giveon to top notch production on the album, Give or Take is album you will enjoy. My favorite songs on the album include, “Lost Me,” “Scarred,” and “For Tonight”.
French Montana & Harry Fraud
French Montana and producer Harry Fraud have teamed up for a collaboration project Montega. Fraud who has worked with Curren$y, Benny The Butcher should bring some good production to match French Montana style. Guest on the album include Rick Ross, Jadakiss, EST Gee, Quavo Benny the Butcher and more. Notable tracks to check out include “Bricks & Bags,” “Kind of Girl,” and Drunk Words, Sober Thoughts”.
