Six new hits in the chart today.
Juice Wrld – Robbery
I liked the last Juice Wrld track (Lucid Dreams) from the off, but this one’s more of a grower – I needed a couple of listens.
The video is a bizarre story about a drunk Juice Wrld setting fire to a goth wedding and nobody seeming to notice.
Wiley, Stefflon Don, Sean Paul and Idris Elba – Boasty
Apparently this first came out last year, but didn’t chart. It’s got a good rhythm, and Sean Paul’s reggae vocals are always good value.
I really like the video, which has lots of fab things like arcade games, retro mobile phones and Stefflon Don’s blue hair.
Billie Eilish – Wish You Were Gay
Acoustic-y opening, leading into a really interesting instrumental, and Billie Eilish’s vocals are always great.
There’s no video yet.
Dave and Burna Boy – Location
I like the atmosphere on the backing track, but it gets a bit repetitive after a while.
Again, we’re still waiting on a video for this one.
Dave – Streatham
Another good atmospheric backing track, and I like the lyrical content – it’s an ode to Dave’s home suburb. Also, is that a callback to Ramz’ Barking, one of my favourite songs of 2017? I do hope so.
There are a lot of cars in the (obviously) London-set video, but at least they’re mostly being driven around rather than randomly stood next to!
Dave and J Hus – Disaster
Yet another epic backing track, which is a bit of a theme with this new Dave album!
Another one with no video yet.
