One of my New Year’s resolutions, is to listen to more new music. I feel like ever so often, I tend to not branch out enough and listen to more things. So this year, I’m going to make a playlist every month of each new song I’ve heard in the month. New as in a song I’ve never heard before, not necessarily a new song that has come out. At the end of the year, I’ll make a master playlists of my favorite song from each month.
After The Storm – Kali Uchis ft. Tyler, the Creator & Bootsy Collins
When I first saw that this song was featuring Bootsy Collins, I smashed that play button. Collins is a funk master and Kali is my queen cause she’s a cancer like myself! I liked her before I found out she was a cancer, so when I found we were the same sign, I naturally became a stan. LOL. Tyler was great on this song too, but that’s no shock cause Tyler and Kali collabs are always a work of art. What I really like about the song is the message. There’s one part where Kali says “If you need a hero look in the mirror”.. That spoke volumes to me. I love that her songs are about positivity and being strong..she’s awesome and did not disappoint in After the Storm. Also, the music video was super cute!

B.A.M. – Schilly
As soon as this track starts, you can’t help to groove and dance. B.A.M. stands for bust a move, so the title is fitting for sure. Very refreshing, yet funky, just the way I like it! Schilly is an up and coming artists from Philly, can’t wait to see more from him in the future.

iShyne – Carnage
If anyone knows me, ya’ll know I can’t resist an EDM/rap combo. It’s my 2 fav music genres bundled into one!!! The best of both worlds ultimately. Although I’m not a big fan of DJ Carnage’s live performances (if you’re a raver you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about), I instantly liked this song. Sometimes it’s just nice to have a song to wild out with ya homies to, iShyne is one of those joints.

Fuck With Myself – Banks
Okay Banks snatched my wig with this one. Also this song is an ANTHEM… ya hear me??? A theme song. Like this track is how you need to feel about yourself 200% of the time. I found this song on accident when I was scrolling through my friend feed on Spotify, looking for something new to listen to. I’m so glad I came across this even though it’s an older song. What’s that saying? Better late than never…that definitely applies here! Check out the music video
god – lil minty
This dark introductory track from lil minty actually slaps. It’s def another song you can wild out with ya homies too. This song makes me excited for what more lil minty has in store for us. I won’t go into too much detail… just keep your eyes peeled for an artist interview from him!

My Way – One Bit ft Noah Cyrus
This upbeat dance track was instantly a personal favorite. Noah Cyrus has been collaborating with a lot of DJ’s lately and I’ve really been digging it. Her voice compliments the bouncy beat so well. This track is full of life, also check out the super dope music video!
Dirty Sexy Money – David Guetta & Afro Jack ft. Charli XCX & French Montana (Blvk Jvck Remix)
Funny story about this song: when I first heard it, I was unaware that this was a remix. I was so happy when I saw there was a music video for this song, and I eagerly watched only to be very confused as to why the song was so slow and the beat wasn’t hittin as hard as before. I legitimately thought I had gone crazy and vibed to a different chorus in my head on Spotify, LOL. Not to hate on the original song (this is not what this is about), I’m just saying I prefer this one. It’s a bit faster tempo and more upbeat.

Filthy – Justin Timberlake
So ya’ll know I like the EDM and ya’ll know I like the funk. Trust me when I say this, once the beat drops, you will not be able to stop swaying your hips. Don’t say Twerkita never warned you! This song is everything you’d expect from the Timberlake, sexy, funky, and cool. Who remembers Love Sex Magic by Ciara feat. Justin Timberlake, I feel like this is a sequel to that song.. If sequels to songs were things LOL. Check out the music video here.
Miss You – Cashmere Cat ft Major Lazer & Tory Lanez
This vibey dance hall track is a sweeet collab. I’m personally a fan of all 3 separate artists. Tory Lanez more or less, but his voice is amazing on this track, I’ll def be checking out more of his stuff. I’m really into Major Lazer (Diplo is DADDY), and they didn’t fail me.. Not that I ever doubted my zaddies. This song is very sweet, this the type of joint you throw on when ya tryna dutty wine with your boo.

KEKE – 6IX9INE ft Fetty Wap & A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie
Ok this song is probably my guilty pleasure of the month. Ya’ll this beat is GAS ⛽Also Fetty Wap!!! I missed him! But seriously this beat you can’t help but start dancing like them goth kids on vine. TURN THIS HOE UP. Let’s talk about how 6IX9INE is serving FACE on this album art tho!! Like that’s what forreal caught my attention and made me listen to this song in the first place. LOL.
