NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: SHAWN MENDES, KANYE, JON BELLION

Currently experiencing mad anxiety about how many new songs came out today. Every time I refreshed Twitter, something new showed up in my feed. I’m not saying I’m mad about it, but I guess there’s something about June 3rd.

“Champions” – Kanye West feat. Travis, Quavo, Big Sean, Yo Gotti, Gucci, 2 Chainz, and Desiigner

The newest Kanye track is a preview of his upcoming Cruel Winter album, a follow up to G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer. The track features a heavy chunk of the G.O.O.D. Music crew, including Gucci Mane (fresh out of prison), and Kanye’s newest signee, Desiigner. This album has been on and off since 2012, but it looks like it’s back on track. Complex wrote a good piece about it here.

“Maybe IDK” – Jon Bellion

Rapper and singer-songwrite Jon Bellion writes about accepting the unknown in his newest track, “Maybe IDK.” The track is another single from his upcoming album, The Human Condition, set to be released June 10th. It is Bellion’s first studio album after a series of four mixtapes, and it has generated a lot of internet hype because of it’s interesting artwork and upbeat vibe.

“Treat You Better” – Shawn Mendes

The first single from Mendes’ sophomore album released at midnight last night and immediately scaled to number one in the iTunes charts.

“Bacon” – Nick Jonas

Ah, a single man’s anthem. Jonas released “Bacon,” which I think is about enjoying being single, but this Verve article made me question everything. Is it about sex? Knowing Nick, probably.

“Talk” – DJ Snake & George Maple

DJ Snake, who I’m sure you’ve heard of (he’s responsible for all of the songs that get stuck in your head, i.e: “Middle”, “Lean On”, “Turn Down For What”, and “You Know You Like It”), released
“Talk,” featuring George Maple, this morning. It’s a tropical feeling, bop, and once again – it’s stuck in my head.

And finally, the one thing not on this list is FRANK OCEAN’S ALBUM. Which we thought would drop today. There’s still time left. Holding a prayer circle at my desk in five.
