Every week we wait patiently for that fresh batch of new tunes from our favorite rising artists. Whether it’s Airplane James, Floyd Miles, Jordano, or Booney, we want to dig in and get our dose of brand-new music. Here are this week’s picks for the best new songs.
Airplane James — FTN
South Central’s Airplane James’ new 8-song project Apology Accepted, is a project that’s bound to catch you by surprise. The standout track, “FTN,” is a chill/wavy record laced with some of the most laidback flows. What I like most about this sonically diverse project is that it builds off of the iconic West Coast melodic delivery pioneered by Nate Dogg, and Airplane James takes it to another level.
Floyd Miles — Too Much to Ask
“Too Much to Ask” presents a mesmerizing blend of soul, house, and disco genres, crafting a sonic journey that resonates with raw emotion. The song’s lyrics delve into the complexities of love and vulnerability, posing questions that many can relate to. This release marks another milestone in Floyd Miles’ musical journey, inviting listeners to dance, reflect, and connect on a profound level.
Jordano — Make Me Bleed
If you’re looking for a fresh face in the alt-scene, check out Pennsylvania-based singer Jordano. With only a handful of releases under her belt, her newest track, “Make Me Bleed,” packs a big punch. Her vocals, combined with the song’s delicate instrumental, are a complete recipe for success. The song’s passionate lyrics and slow tempo were designed to put you in your feelings.
Booney — Bottomless Mimosas
It’s less than likely that Atlanta native Booney plans on letting his foot off the gas pedal. Undoubtedly, his newly-released debut project, “Cheap Liquor,” has the power to redefine his legacy, as it perfectly showcases his well-rounded skillset and be more than just a lyrical rapper. The lead single, “Bottomless Mimosas,” shows Booney’s lyrical and storytelling abilities. Matched with a graceful instrumental, Booney exemplifies a level of vulnerability that’s missing from rap right now.
