New Hits Friday: 8th February 2019

Four new hits in the chart today!

Lauv and Troye Sivan – I’m So Tired

Well, at least there’s a tune to it, and I quite like the electro-tinged backing track. It’s not hugely exciting though.

There’s no video for this yet.

21 Savage and J Cole – A Lot

The lyrical content of the rap is a lot cleverer than most stuff out nowadays, and I quite like the soul singing in the background.

The video, which compares the fronts people put on in public to the realities of their lives, features a lot of 20th century trappings like vinyl records, flashbulb photography, and classic dishes, so I’m all about it.

Fredo and Dave – All I Ever Wanted

Great epic electro atmosphere on the backing track, and the rhythm of the rap is quite nice. I’ve not been keen on Fredo’s previous stuff, but I quite like this one.

The video’s a fairly standard London rap video – urban setting, lots of weed – but at least there’s a semi-story going on.

Billie Eilish – Bury A Friend

Great beat, interesting and unusual vocals. Nice to have something different in the chart.

The video is suitably haunting and full of horror imagery, which I really, really like!
