WALE SHARES NEW SINGLE + ANNOUNCES FOLARIN 2
“Down South” looks back to some of Southern rap’s most memorable hits, repurposing a sample of Mike Jones’ “Still Tippin’” while interpolating UGK’s Master P and Fiend-assisted “Slangin.” Wale uses this canvas to dispel glamorous images of street life as he spits about the downsides of life as a trapper: “In the ’90s, a traffic stop get you tickets, a joke/Now they find you at traffic stops you get riddled with holes.” Beezy and Maxo take a street-level approach to, the former evoking pure menace and the latter oscillating between aggression and reflection. Maxo concludes his verse with a chilling observation: “Ever since my bro got killed, I can’t trust shit, I can’t trust nothing/Can’t even trust my Crips, because a Crip killed Nipsey Hussle.”

LITANY SHARES THE NEW SINGLE ‘ADULT MOVIES’ FROM THE ‘ADULT MOVIES’ EP WHICH IS OUT NOW
Produced by Fyfe and co-written with James New, Litany has a gift for painting specific memories as if she’s commenting on them live, which makes ‘Adult Movies’ engaging from its very first line. Two friends are drunk, high and watching adult movies ironically, which inevitably leads to more intimacy than either of them had planned. And then lust leads to love in the most unexpected of ways. It’s a song that feels like the story to ‘Sleepover’ told from a different perspective.

Veronica Fusaro – Beach (Acoustic) out now!
With her versatility, Veronica Fusaro has already convinced Dire Straits legend Mark Knopfler, amongst others, with whom she performed together in the amphitheater in Nîmes. Among the 350 concerts she has already played, including Glastonbury and Eurosonic, she has also supported the likes of Ibeyi and Eagle-Eye Cherry.
But live shows became a rare thing during the pandemic – which is why the acoustic re-release of “Beach” has a special meaning for Fusaro. “Because of Corona, there were basically no band shows. ‘I have been performing alone with my guitar and my loop station for years but since then the instrument has grown even closer to my heart. People responded so intensely to the live version of Beach that I really wanted to re-record the song!”
