Hi.

Welcome to Make 1,2 - a space for reviews about albums, songs and artists who are changing the way we think about society today.

Queen

Queen

This week admittedly didn't have a theme or concept for the playlist. Inadvertently, however, many of my favorite musicians released singles, which everything work despite my initial hesitations. What I found to be helpful in putting everything together this week was paying attention to where individual songs should be placed and how that made sense in the context of the playlist's energy. Initially, things really petered off in the second half but after I injected some life from MNEK's sure-to-be-summer bop "Tongue" (which will get you to the dance floor) and Sofi Tukker's bright and playful "Baby I'm A Queen," everything seemed to fall into place. I included Kylie Minogue's controversial turn to country-pop because I feel it best embodies a Dolly Parton-esque approach to country that works. And the rest: welcome back good rap singles and a host of great lyricism.
