New Music Friday 4/17: Da Baby, DVSN, The Dream, Kelly Rowland, 21 Savage featuring Summer

This past Friday was packed with new music. I guess these artists decided to release some anticipated music for us during this quarantine. 

Da Baby- Blame It on Baby

Da Baby released his 3rd album Blame It On Baby, with some nice features such as Roddy Rich, Quavo, A Boogie, Meg Thee Stallion and Ashanti. He’s known for having the same sound and flow but he switched it up some on this album.

The Dream – Sextape 4

This is his 7th album and he is usually lowkey with his drops these days. He only has one feature on this album, which is Jhene Aiko; how could you resist putting her on an album. If you’re already a Dream fan, then you’;ll easily vibe to this but if you’re a distant fan, it’ll take you longer to get into this album.

Dvsn- A Muse in her Feelings

They dropped their 3rd album and per the norm, it has a sexy sultry sound. They can’t do wrong honestly, especially with the features they have on the album like PARTYNEXTDOOR, Jessie Reyez and the lovely Snoh Aalegra. This, to me, is considered a full album; it has 16 songs, an array of features and a little kick to it.

Kelly Rowland- “Coffee”

Kelly has popped back on the scene with this sexy single “Coffee” which coincidentally mimics her poppin melanin. The cover art is dope and hopefully we’ll be getting an album from her by the end of the year. She’s been dropping singles for the past two years but her last album was Talk A Good Game in 2013. Come on Kelly, we waiting for an album!!

21 Savage featuring Summer Walker- “Secret”

This was a different collaboration but needed. This pair decided to sample Xscape’s “Little Secret” and it doesn’t sound bad. Honestly, it’s starting to become a trend for Summer to sample 90’s hit like “Come Thru” featuring Usher, which was sampled from his song “You Make Me Wanna.” Another is “Summer Reign”, which was Rick Ross song she was featured on, that sampled “Rain” by SWV. Summer isn’t making it sound bad, but let’s hope it doesn’t become her “thing”. Granted, she has more non-sampled songs than sampled songs so let’s keep it at that.

What did you think of these drops over the weekend? Comment below and let me know!
