Music Review | Drake, Diddy, Ambré, Kay Flock, and Key Glock

New Music

Here’s this weeks’ rundown of new music from some of your favorite artists in the game.

Drake – Honestly, Nevermind

Drake quietly announced the release of his seventh studio album via Instagram, and Summer 2022 has officially started. The Grammy award-winning MC continues his prolific run in music, cementing his position as one of the most influential artists in the last decade. With Honestly, Nevermind, the Canadian rapper pivots into a musical direction that has gradually grown more nuanced, paying homage to the late Virgil Abloh through a score of House-tinged records. 

Diddy & Bryson Tiller Gotta Move On

Sean “Diddy” Combs makes his return to music with a Bryson Tiller-assisted single that empowers listeners. “Gotta Move On” is a constant reminder to power (on) through adversity, even if it hurts. Earlier this week, BET announced that the legendary mogul will be honored with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s “BET Awards.” With a new imprint, LOVE RECORDS, and LP due for release later this year, 2022 is making out to be another major turning point in Diddy’s genre-defying career.

Ambré – 3000°

Ambré‘s sophomore project feels like home. With 3000°, the critically-acclaimed singer, songwriter highlights the unique experiences of Nola’s black community. In addition to recruiting her mother to provide commentary between songs, 3000° features appearances from Masego, BEAM, Jvck James, Destin Conrad, and Jay Electronica. Through an introspective lens, the Grammy award-winning artist challenges the conventional means of expression, leaning on family and culture to honor her story.

Kay Flock – Make A Movie (feat. Fivio Foreign)

Kay Flock and Fivio Foreign “Make A Movie” in their latest collaboration. This track traverses NYC’s boroughs to bring drill to the forefront of rap in a cinematic way. Laced with spitfire rhymes and real in-your-face energy, “Make A Movie” accentuates Kay Flock’s guttural delivery and Fivio Foreign’s signature tough-talk.

Key Glock – 712AM

Key Glock starts his day with a trip to the bank at “712AM.” A cash-rich rendition of Future’s “712PM,” Glock is keeping momentum alive with more flex rap and moneyed mentions from the back of his trademark yellow Benz truck. The freestyle video arrives on the heels of what’s considered a breakout year for the Yellow Tape 2 composer, showing no signs of slowing down as he continues to mob with his Paper Route Empire team to the top.
