New Music Roundup: Kehlani, DJ Snake & Yella Beezy
Anticipated returns and collabos.
“I got it, I got it, I got it, and you gon’ respect it,” Kehlani sings on a new banger that is all about owning your power and being confident. She teamed up with songwriter/production duo Novawav for this trap ‘n’ B song, which will make you believe in girl power while you nod your head and turn up. If this is her new direction, the swag is on 100, and we can’t wait hear what the rest of her upcoming album has in store.—Driadonna Roland
DJ Snake, “Ocho Cinco”
DJ Snake kicks off our weekend with his newest track “Ocho Cinco,” a collabo with Yellow muthaf—kin’ Claw. Finally! Fans have been waiting for the release of this mix since Ultra Music Festival back in March. On the song, the four keep us alive with an electric Bollywood feel. The storytelling behind the hard-sounding kick drum and dissonant synth will mesmerize you, but also make you want to show off your best hardstyle moves. The track is already getting feedback like “Best Collab of 2016,” “dammnnn hard AF” and so much more.—Selena Valencia
Yella Beezy, “Trap In Designer”
Yella Beezy’s traction has shot up thanks to the Internet and radio-successful single “Trap In Designer.” After receiving over 82K listens, Beezy wasted no time dropping the song’s music video. And even that has over 400,000 views. The summertime song is off of his Lite Work project so if you are looking to hear a club banger, hit the play button above!—Erin Ashley Simon
