Chris Brown’s “Indigo” Is Already The Album Of The Summer

Cover

The singer never disappoints.

The hype around Chris Brown’s Indigo began way back in January of this year when the singer dropped the first single from the record titled “Undecided.” Fans were waiting for news of his ninth studio album, and even before they received any details of features or even the title of the record, they were convinced that it would be a smash hit.

The 30-year-old Virginia native certainly hasn’t disappointed as he’s reunited with longtime collaborators on his latest effort to deliver a chart-worthy, dance-heavy, R&B-jamming record that will have you both in your feelings and on the dancefloor. Indigo boasts a slew of collaborations as Brown has called on some heavy-hitters to help his craft what he hopes to be the album of the summer, if not the album of the year. The two-disc project includes features by Nicki Minaj, H.E.R., Lil Jon, Juicy J, Juvenile, Tyga, G-Eazy, Lil Wayne, Joyner LucasGunna, Drake, Ink, Justin Bieber, Tory Lanez, Trey Songz, and Tank.

A few standouts are obviously the singles he’s already released including “Wobble Up” with Nicki Minaj and G-Eazy, “No Guidance” with Drake, and “Need A Stack” with Lil Wayne and Joyner Lucas.However, make sure you give other notables like “Temporary Lover” and “Girl of My Dreams” a spin as well.

J Balvin & Bad Bunny Surprise Fans With “OASIS” Project

The pair drop off a Latin, Caribbean, urban album.

They are undeniably two of the largest music artists in the world, and now J Balvin and Bad Bunny have surprised their millions of fans by releasing their collaborative project OASIS. The eight-track release contains features by Mr. Eazi and https://www.hotnewhiphop.com/full-list-of-latin-grammy-nominations-j-balvin-rules-supreme-news.60317.html of Enanitos Verdes and arrives with a simultaneous video release for the first single “Qué Pretendes.”

The two artists have bonded to the point of creating a brotherhood, and as Colombia’s ‘Global Ambassador of Reggaeton’ and Puerto Rico’s ‘Leader of the Latin Trap explosion,’ J Balvin and Bad Bunny have led the way to move Latin Urban music into unchartered territory—and with OASIS, the pair are “[making] waves with a fresh Caribbean flow.”

“Oasis is a transcendental and refreshing album; it is a rescue, a relief,” says Bad Bunny. “An Oasis helps you to supply yourself with what you’re missing and to find what you lack spiritually; this is what this album represents. We have been working on it for a long time, and finally, we found its moment. Working with J Balvin has undoubtedly been an unparalleled experience, I have always admired and respected him a lot and we have had an excellent vibe throughout this whole process.”

J Balvin adds, “I am proud to say I LOVE Bad Bunny; we always seem to be on the same wavelength, as he likes what I like. He is also all about celebrating our culture, while remaining super humble. Working with Benito again has been a musical joy. I am blessed to not only call him my brother, but now a partner on an album that has even become a personal Oasis. I’ve been traveling all over the world the last few months, and anytime it started to feel overwhelming, I’ve been able to listen to the tracks we created, and instantly return ‘Home’ to our own musical paradise. I’m so glad the time has arrived where fans can now share those same new vibes with us.”

Tracklist

1. MOJAITA
2. YO LE LLEGO

The refreshing R&B record is a vibe.

In the hype of Friday’s hip hop releases including Chris Brown‘s Indigo and Mustard’s Perfect Ten, singer Daniel Caesar delivers his R&B album CASE STUDY 01. Just a few months ago, Caesar found himself at the center of controversy after a video circulated online where he called out black people for being mean to his friend YesJulz who had been accused of being a “culture vulture.” Many didn’t appreciate his comments, but he soon issued an apology. “I expressed my opinion in a very pretentious…I was talking down to you guys,” he said. “I apologize for how I expressed my idea because that is where I went wrong. I believe in what I said. A real man can admit when he’s wrong. I can admit when I’m wrong.”

Since that time, Caesar has kept himself away from social media scandals and has pretty much laid low as he’s crafted his latest project. Controversies aside, CASE STUDY 01 is a calming record that can be played from beginning to end as its laid back, unwinding vibe is captivating. Caesar brings in a handful of features with some recognizable names including BrandyPharrell Williams, Sean Leon, Jacob Collier, and John Mayer. Give it a spin and let us know what you think.
