88rising are continuing their quest for world domination with the release of sultry anthem “lowkey” from Indonesian artist NIKI. The track deals with the theme of fleeting love set against a backdrop of neon-lit r’n’b.

“lowkey” is produced by NIKI alongside Z3N, a twice-over platinum producer who’s worked with top-tier rap artists such as Lil Wayne, Tory Lanez, Lil Baby and YNM Melly.

French rap duo PNL should rightfully be considered the rap kings of France, they just dropped their fourth album “Deux Frères” (translates to “two brothers”) and it’s the perfect follow up to their internationally acclaimed 2016 album “Dans La Légende”.

The album is spearheaded by single “Au DD” (the visual for the track is said to be the first music video to be filmed inside of the Eiffel Tower and has already amassed 45+ million views on YouTube). The new album marks a progression in their sound, a sound that’s taken them from rapping about selling drugs in Paris to a deeper, more brooding soundscape on the new album. A soundscape that is now laced with a melodic flow and contains darker lyrics dealing with themes such as loss, loneliness, resentment, anger, and revenge.

There are not many artists that come across my radar that I truly get excited for new releases. Anuka has been one of my favorites ever since I first discovered her. She has to be one of the most talented and well-rounded singer, song-writers.

Her latest single ‘The Change’ is just one piece of an absolutely amazing album she released today, “Rebound”. The single is an empowering piece featuring two of her good friends AMAYA and Emelie, that is full of emotion and depth. Each artist provides a call and response to one another celebrating friendship, love and the evolution that comes with these big themes of life. Check out the visual compliment the three created.
