Every week we get a new list of music you should know about. In our next installment, Oliver Wang from Soul-sides.com offers his take on three new singles. Here are his picks.
Kendrick Lamar and SZA
Song: Al the Stars
Recently it was announced that Kendrick Lamar will be helming the soundtrack for one of the most anticipated movies of the year, Marvel’s Black Panther.
The first single, All the Stars, is a collaboration between Lamar and his TDE label mate SZA.
He's also a major center of the “Bad Rap” documentary, directed by filmmaker Salima Koroma, and featuring commentary by Take Two contributor Oliver Wang. The documentary follows the lives of Asian-American hip-hop artists like Dumbfounddead and their struggle to garner credibility in the American hip-hop industry.
The Kids Are Alright
From youtube videos to a budding music and T.V. stars, this L.A. duo of sisters (20 and 18 respectively) have a knack for cross-harmonization. “The Kids Are Alright” is their new single, just came out, and could be the prelude to their debut LP on Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment label.
