Six new hits in the chart this week.
Kehlani and Ty Dolla Sign – Nights Like This
It’s very generic, but at least there’s some melody.
The video, however, is great! It’s got an actual story, with a sort of robot-Frankenstein-betrayal thing going on (and Kehlani and Ty Dolla Sign actually playing characters in the story). So much better than dancing in clubs or standing around next to expensive cars!
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and 6ix9ine – Swervin’
I like the atmosphere and the bass-heavy backing track. On the whole, though, it’s not exciting enough for me.
There’s no video yet.
Little Mix and Ty Dolla Sign – Think About Us
Good beat, good pop tune. I quite like this one.
Again, no video for this one yet.
Yungen and Dappy – Comfortable
Really like the Caribbean sound on the backing track – it provides a great atmosphere. There’s not much of a hook though.
The video is a bit of a ‘standing around next to cars’ video, but there’s some interesting stuff going on with colour.
Dua Lipa – Swan Song
The instrumentals on the intro are quite interesting, and the atmosphere’s good (it’s from a film soundtrack so it’s appropriately epic), but the vocal’s not interesting enough for me.
The video ties in with the film, so it’s all very dusty and apocalyptic.
J Cole – Middle Child
Jarring instrumentals, repetitive rap. Not my thing.
No video yet for this track.
