Rich Brian, Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar and much more are back to bring some new heat for the new month and also for me to tell you what’s new on this week’s NMF!
Let’s talk about Rich Brian’s new album, Amen. The 18 year old’s debut album was released earlier tonight via 88Rising laced with 14 tracks in total. Amen was straight fire in my opinion, this is Rich Brian’s first debut since he announced his name being changed and has been hyping this album for a couple of months now. I have a few favourites like Amen, Attention (ft. Offset) and Trespass. Brian’s interview with HNHH last spring, he exclaimed that “There’s still going to be funny stuff. When you listen to it, you might still laugh and stuff, that’s cool. That’s what I’m going for, too. But it’s not a joke. When people listen to it, they’re going to be like, ‘It’s that real shit.’” And in my opinion, he really did show us what he’s capable of. Check out the debut project available on Spotify.
Next up, we have Chris Brown back with more music this week. This time, the R&B singer has comeback with “State of the Union” as he talks over a throwback beat about his opinion on the recent State of the Union speech that Donald Trump gave yesterday. Chris Brown gave a positive message towards his opinion as he wants to talk about social harmony. This song was sampled by “Goapele – “Closer” and personally that’s one of my favourite beats to even freestyle on. Chris Brown absolutely killed it with this one, check it out below on Soundcloud.
With the very anticipated soundtrack for the upcoming movie “Black Panther“, Kendrick Lamar & The Weeknd has teamed up once again to create “Pray For Me” for the upcoming release of the soundtrack next week. Many artists include Schoolboy Q, SZA, Future, Jorja Smith, Khalid, 2 Chainz, Vince Staples and more are also included on the movie’s soundtrack, check out the recent single below on Spotify.
Justin Timberlake is back after 5 years with a 16 laced up 5th studio album “Man of the Woods”. With some pre-singles already released, Justin Timberlake has not released a album since 2013 with his 20/20 Experience ⎯ Which my opinion, is one of my favourite albums by him, his latest album features 2 artists which are Alicia Keys and Chris Stapleton with production help from Timbaland, Pharrell, Danja, Max Martin, and more. The one song that got my attention was “Sauce”, I’m very well known for being lost in the sauce and so to have Justin Timberlake have that sample from the viral video from last year of the guy from Best Buy comparing juice and sauce made me laugh. Check out his new album below on Spotify.
