Q3: Say lil bih….

  1. The Story of O.J. | Jay-Z killed his ego and brought us Shawn Carter on 4:44 – the vulnerable, imperfect husband and father. Never before had we heard him being so honest.
  2. $lay | Meek Mill ft. A&AP Ferg
  3. Magnolia | Playboi Carti
  4. Bodak Yellow | We met Cardi B. via Mona Scott. The instant reality star soon realized Love & Hip-Hop’s true potential, and catapulted off that success. Years later her song is #2 on the Billboard charts.
  5. Good Drank | 2 Chainz ft. Gucci Mane & Quavo
  6. Family Feud | Jay-Z ft. Beyoncé
  7. Party | The artist we love to hate dropped another meaningless single — but it knocks. I can’t sing a single verse, but as soon as the chorus hits:Smary Guy
  8. Bring Dem Things | French Montana ft. Pharrell
  9. Hands | Father
  10. BAM | Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley
  11. ELEMENT. | Kendrick Lamar
  12. Sorry Not Sorry | Demi consistently improves as the Christina of this generation’s Disney divas. While Selena meddles in whispers, and Miley in whiteness, Demi gives us vocals and seasoning.
  13. Midnight | Jessie Ware
  14. Careless | Daley ft. Chiiild
  15. Want You Back | HAIM
  16. Late Nights & Heartbreak | Hannah Williams & The Affirmations dropped this album last year. 4:44 put me on the soulful force as the basis for the title track. Hannah sings down. 
  17. RAF | A$AP Mob ft. A$AP Rocky, Playboi Carti, Quavo, Lil Uzi Vert & Frank Ocean
  18. do re mi | blackbear ft. Gucci Mane
  19. Heat | Aaron Camper
  20. What They Say | The gem that gave us “Truffle Butter.” And for THAT, Maya Jane Coles, I say your name.
  21. Sky Walker | Miguel ft. Travis Scott
  22. Stingy | Elijah Blake
  23. No Limit | G-Eazy ft. A$SAP Rocky & Cardi B
  24. Love So Soft | The ORIGINAL American Idol has always delivered. And she’s back on a new label with a sound honoring R&B tendencies of 90s legend. A class Kelly can easily be associated with vocally.
  25. Through Enough | VanJess ft. GoldLink
  26. Attitude | Leikeli47
  27. Think Bout That | A searingly personal song from UK import Jessie J has to be her best single. Ever. I was always aware of her talent, but something was missing before.
  28. Hello | Ledisi
  29. Dive | Tiffany Gouche will take her sensual R&B on tour with Daley as an artist who isn’t leaving her sexuality out of her art.
