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.
Black History month has been lit y’all!!! We got lots of new music, Black Panther, and Popeye’s brought back the $5 Big Box 🙌 My February has been amazing!! So let’s get down to the tunes I peeped this month⏬
Plug Walk – Rich the Kid
This jawn makes me wanna crip walk LMAO. I haven’t really listened to Rich the Kid except for that one song he did with Diplo. This track definitely has my ears open for him 👂 I love the dope vibe of this track like you can’t help but to just jam to this joint.

Look Alive – BlocBoy JB ft. Drake
6 God has been so good to us this black history month family. Even though Drake is featured on this song, let’s be real, Drake made this song. It makes me chuckle every time I hear BlocBoy rhymed “bih come through” “you and you” LMAOO 😂 Sound like he wrote that bar with his fist balled up with a crayon. Nonetheless, still a banger tbh
Mirage – Trip Rexx and Chaz Ultra
I love this track because it’s groovy and dreamy☁️ If you like the sound of Dejv Ju by Post Malone, you’ll love this song. In my opinion, Mirage is even better! Make sure to check out Trip Rexx and Chaz Ultra’s new EP Outlaws, they’ve got more than a few bangers on there 🔥

T’ed Up – Rae Sremmurd
I’m a fan of Rae Sremmud because I Iove how their music is generally positive vibes. Their music is mostly turn up hits and T’d Up did not disappoint!

Make Luv – Brent Faiyaz
Faiyaz did an amazing job on this song. His voice is sooo smooth and nostalgic. Like that 1990’s RnB smooth. He makes the kind of songs that you can’t wait to say to your kids “ya’ll don’t know nothing bout this” Make Luv is that why you only want me now that I’m poppin type of song. 10 out of 10 bump this🔊

Love Lies – Khalid and Normani
This sultry duet is beautiful yet intense at the same time. I’m not a big 5H fan, so I wasn’t aware Normani was gonna snatch my edges like that 🤷 The first time I listened, I instantly loved this. They are a beautiful duo, their voices compliment each other so well, I hope to see more collabs from them. Check out the music video here
Faded Love – Tinashe ft. Feature
One time I read in an interview that Tinashe is self-taught and produces her music. I was very impressed and I’ve listened to her ever since cause girl power🌸♀️💕Also, I feel Tinashe doesn’t get the recognition she deserves! Ya’ll need to support my girl!! She has been working so hard! I’m proud of the 2 singles she’s put out so far, Faded Love and No Drama. It’s dope that she got Offset and Future on those songs. The future is looking pretty bright for Tinashe🌟 Check out the music video here
2 Da Moon – Towkio Ft Teddy Jackson and Grace Weber
I don’t know if ya’ll have ever heard Hot Shit by Towkio, but as I soon as I heard that song I instantly craved more from him, and I was stoked when he dropped this new song. It’s on par with Hot Shit, still super groovy, and I dig it! If you’ve never heard of Towkio, he’s definitely up and coming, and you should listen to his music right now. Check out his music video for Hot Shit.

My Crew – Kevin Geroge
This reminds me of a baby Travis Scott song if that makes sense. Once you hear the ad-libs, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Kevin George also made the beat for this, I really dig the beat in this track, and that’s why it made the cut.

I Heard You Got Too Litt Last Night – SAINt JHN
This is the track you add to your playlist that’s got Marvin’s Room on it. Yeah, it’s one of those crying the club joints. But ain’t nothing wrong with dancing with tears in your eyes! We all do, that’s why there’s music for that. This is the first SAINt JHN song I’ve heard and it surely will have me peeping out some of his other stuff 👀

Those are a few of the new digs I’ve heard this month. Let me know if you add any to your playlists or if you have any tracks you wanna send my way!
