Even when time is flying by a little too quickly, you can count on better weather, the final stretch of the semester and tons of new music to hold us over until summer. Here’s what was hot last month.
Sheck Wes has created a name for himself by offering the kind of bangers that people simply love. Songs like “Mo Bamba” and “Live Sheck Wes Die Sheck Wes” have lead him to affiliations with G.O.O.D Music and signing with Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Records. With “Do That” the Harlem rapper continues his hot streak.
From his latest full length offering “In The Comfort Of,” “On Me,” is a sultry combination of Sango’s genius production and the raw harmonies of alternative r&b vocalist Jon Bap.

“Movin on Up,” is an affirmation of the undisputed talent that is Azealia Banks. As rumors of her second studio album are spiraling more than ever, Banks seems to have tailored her hip-hop dance fusion style perfectly. If tracks like “Movin on Up,” and “Anna Wintour” are indicative of what she has up her sleeve, be prepared for Banks to take over the world.
This month, The Weeknd returned from his hiatus with a surprise EP in “My Dear Melancholy.” “Wasted Times” is a pleasant retreat from pop fueled records that decorated his 2016 album, “Starboy,” back to the more chilling, stratospheric sounds of “Trilogy.”
Appearing on his debut EP “GOOD Job, You Found Me,” “Miami” is pure flex music. Valee trades braggadocious verses with G.O.O.D Music rapper, Pusha T on the song, referencing designer sneakers, expensive clothes and push to start cars as products of his new found success. With Kanye West executively producing his entire project, there’s frankly no one in more of a position to swag out like Valee.
