“November” Album Review

One year after SiR officially signed to Top Dawg Entertainment, November has arrived.

 

The album is already receiving praise from TDE fans and critics alike. The 31-year-old Inglewood artist, SiR, blends aspects of soul and r&b with a modern, dark twist. Other than two features from ScHoolboy Q and Etta Bond, November is SiR’s project which allows the listener to really become acquainted with the artist.

 

Even if you’re not a big r&b fan, November is definitely worth checking out. Any fan of TDE would appreciate the album’s complexity.

New Drake EP

Last night, Drizzy Drake released an EP, Scary Hours, which comprises of two tracks.

 

The first song, “God’s Plan,” has all the aspects of a Drake song that you’d expect. The second, “Diplomatic Immunity,” has more of an orchestral vibe to it. I’m not a huge fan of Drake because he usually doesn’t put much thought into his lyrics, but “Diplomatic Immunity” pleasantly surprised me. It’s basically four and a half minutes of Drake venting over a well-made instrumental.

“Oblivion” Album Review

I love T-Pain…

Unlike the movie Oblivion, T-Pain’s Oblivion was awesome.

 

He’s one of the few artists that doesn’t change his sound too drastically. If it isn’t broke don’t fix it. Everything you want from a T-Pain project is present in Oblivion.

  • Smooth melodies, catchy hooks, and clever lyrics? CHECK
  • Humorous lines? CHECK
  • A Chris Brown feature? CHECK

Oblivion is exactly what I’d hope to get from the Autotune King. Standout tracks include “Cee Cee From DC”, “2 Fine”, “Second Chance”, “Who Died” (just to name a few).

T-Pain Announces New Album “Oblivion”

It’s been more than five years since the release of T-Pain’s last full-length album, Revolver, so the public is in need of some Pain. As a huge fan of the autotune legend, news of an upcoming project made my day.

 

Titled OBLiViON, the new album will be arriving on November 17th. T-Pain made this announcement in an Instagram post describing a conversation that supposedly happened between him and a passenger on a plane.

Most of the details of the album have been kept under wraps but his two recent tracks, “F.B.G.M” featuring Young M.A. and “Goal Line” with Blac Youngsta will probably be included in the tracklist.

 

In the past, T-pain’s never failed to deliver some incredible radio hits but I’m excited to see the artistic direction he takes with OBLiViON. His acoustic appearance on NPR Tiny Desk Concert was wildly popular and became the most viewed episode of the series. The video was so successful that the artist returned a year later to deliver a 27-minute concert for NPR Front Row in the same style. In August of this year, Pain even announced an Acoustic tour.

Does this mean that OBLiViON will be less dependent on vocal effects or will he continue the tried-and-true formula that made him a star? I guess we’ll find out in September.

#TBT: “Yo (Excuse Me Miss)” (by Chris Brown)

Another classic from C-Breezy in honor of #ThrowbackThursday. I miss the days when music videos had impressive choreography and synchronized background dancers.
