“Chewing Gum” by Blood Orange
In Blood Orange’s latest laid back album, “Negro Swan,” one of the more lively songs “Chewing Gum” is all about being tired. Devonte Hynes spends most of the song repeatedly asking “what do you want from me?” as if someone is constantly asking hims for more and more stuff that he’s just tired of supplying. A$AP Rocky contributes nicely with a Frank Ocean esque feature that’s just catchy as hell.
“breathin” by Ariana Grande
In another run of the mill pop ballad filled Ariana album, “breathin” is one of the most attention demanding songs. In what seems like a note to self song about staying calm and bringing one’s self back down to earth, Ariana vocally seems near the edge of a break down during the delivery of the track’s hook. It’s a much welcomed fresh track that is sure to control the radio waves in the coming fall months.
