In My Feelings
This week's playlist spans a variety of genres but really is an ode to hip hop, R&B and tropical dance music, which feels apropos for the middle of July. Anchoring the playlist is Drake's "In My Feelings," one of his finest offerings from his largely lackluster Scorpion. It's an example of how great sample can really transform a song into a surefire summer hit. Other standouts include BROCKHAMPTON's turn to a more fully fleshed, expansive R&B sound, which is a welcome trajectory in my opinion. Finally, I can't help but gravitate toward Gaika's ode to immigrants that is particularly timely.
