This EP completely caught me off guard. I wasn’t for sure what genre of music Lil Nas was going for, but I didn’t expect it to go so far away from country. He’s definitely a Hip-Hop artist that’s into Country, Pop, Rock, a lil’ Indie, Jazz and so on. Overall the album is FUN. It’s his first body of work so I can’t say what his sound is or isn’t but I can tell you he gives us a buffet worth of songs. A lil’ Chinese, with some crab legs, and a giant watermelon!

Lil Nas X Hey Mikey ATL

1.Old Town Road Remix feat. Billy Rae Cyrus

Is the longest running Billboard number 1 of all time. Catch the thousands of videos people have made singing and dancing to the original and remix. I know some of us have grown tired of listening to the hit but it has made its own history.

 

2. Panini 

The second song on the album is super catchy. It really showcases Lil Nas’s personality. Very electronic-based. The video has robots and is in the year 3000, very futuristic. LNX

 

3.F9mily (You & Me) & Travis Barker

The third track from “7” is rock-based. I was totally shocked to hear the guitar and drums in the background. Then I realized  Travis Barker is the same drummer from Blink 182. Very diverse. Would not think this was the same artist who made “Old Town Road”. Definitely a star who makes music for everyone. Lil Nas is NOT your typical Atlanta based artist.

4. Kick It

He obviously loves live instruments. The saxophone is instrumental. Song about “kick-n it” with a guy. The guy is obviously a known artist. He specifically states he replaced  the guy on billboard. That his sister loves and his uncle considers to be the G.O.A.T. Who could this be?

5. Rodeo feat. Cardi B

A mix between country and hip-hop. He definitely has a unique sound. Cardi B obviously brings the extra energy needed sense Lil Nas is speaking so monotone.

6. Bring You Down

So far he has his sound cemented. Not afraid to have live music. The iconic choruses remind me of the bands from the 90’s. Able to create a classic rock song others would enjoy.

7. C7osure (You Like)

Diversity. He’s giving me Maroon 5 vibes. Song is different from everything on the EP. Ifi was in year 2000 this song would be exactly what I expect a song in 2019 to sound like.

8. Old Town Road

The Original of the famous song. In case you don’t care for the remix this song gives you a foundation of the one everyone knows. Obviously just a catchy as the remix and the variations are the same.

 

Let me know what you guys think of “7”.

The world of rap and hip-hop will never end. This statement definitely rings true with the never ending indie rappers and artists it produces. However, here at HeyMikeyATL one of them is practically. November, one of Atlanta’s undiscovered treasures and a an equally amazing rapper, is back with new music and a new vision with “Inception!”

November has released some pretty dope tracks over the last few years, but this new track is by far our favorite. The melody, intro, and lyrics showcase that he has truly evolved as an artist. In fact it sounds like a song worthy enough to be on a movie like Queen & Slim–a mood setter. In a recent conversation with the rapper he tells us, “2020 is my year man. I’m coming for necks and making my own way. 2019 has been all about elevating and learning how to recognize good, genuine people who have your back…”

Inception is defined it layman’s terms as a starting point. For November this latest track may be a sign he is heading the right direction to an entirely different level. Check out “Inception” below!

November is really coming up in the world and we are super proud of his evolution and growth. What do you guys think of “Inception?” Sound off in the comments’ section below.

Usher is the highest grossing male R&B artist of all time with millions of records sold worldwide. His voice is a staple of the music world with fans young and old still in awe of his abilities. The R&B King is still churning out hits, ad has tapped Ella Mai for a duet on his latest single, “Don’t Waste My Time!”

The track is rumored to be from his forthcoming album which is also said to a sequel of sorts to his hit album, “Confessions” (2004), and is back in the studio with the likes of Lil Jon and Ludacris, both who were key players on hits like “Yeah” and “Lovers And Friends.”

We listened to “Don’t Waste My Time” and it is definitely a bop. Usher and Ella Mai are both saying they want more from each other in the same but in ways that really count, like good vibes, effort, and energy; not just sex. This is indeed a refreshing lesson that man can resonate with, especially in time when sex is so easy to get. Check out the single below:

Cute, right? We have no idea what the name of Usher’s forthcoming album will be, who else will be featured, or any of the producers, but if it is anything like “Confessions,” then we know it will be a doozy, or at the least controversial (Especially if he spokes on his recent divorce from Grace Miguel). What do you guys think of the single? Sound off in the comments section below! Happy listening!
