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!
