MAJOR LAZER!!! Finally Major Lazer released a new album! The new album Peace Is The Mission was released a while ago now, and I have just been really lazy about writing a review on it. This album is great all the way through from beginning to end. I love this album a lot, and I love the Cartoon that premiers on FXX as well. Most of these songs I heard on the show and was dying to get a hold of them. Now that I have them I can’t stop listening to them! My favorite songs are “Powerful”, “Lean On”, and “Night Riders”.
“Powerful” when I first heard this song On Major Lazer on FXX I fell in love. It was the song the episode titled ” Vampire Weekend”. When I heard this song it had the lead singer from the band Vampire weekend on it and not Tarrus. But Tarrus Riley does a great job on the song too. This song has Ellie Goulding singing for most of the track, and she does a great job. The beat and the lyrics are so good on this track. It’s an addicting song that you can’t stop listening; I can see this being a summer anthem of 2015.
“Lean On” is the first song I heard from this album. After one listen I couldn’t stop listening to it, I may have burned out on this song but I keep coming back to it because it’s such a chill and fun song to listen to. It’s a great song to listen to on the way to the beach or at the beach. It’s a great song all around. MØ and Dj Snake do a great job on the song as well, MØ are perfect on this track in my opinion.
“Night Riders” was the second single I believe that was released. Whatever it was I loved it too, and got me even more pumped for the album after hearing it. All the rappers on this track add a great verse to the track. Not one slacked on their part on this song; this song is a banger and could be a club anthem for sure.
This is a great album from Major Lazer in my opinion. If you haven’t heard of Major Lazer before this is a great album to start with. Every track is great, and will get you going, it will have you singing the songs out loud at the top of your lungs. I look forward to seeing Major Lazer on the list at Coachella 2015, keeping my fingers crossed!
Tyga released his third album this past week The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. The album had a ton of delays because of the feud with his Birdman and the Cash Money Label. It appears that he partnered with Spotify for a surprise release though. The album is a good album it didn’t blow me away at first, but then Tyga surprised me a bit. One thing is for sure on this album though; Tyga sounds hungry and sounds like he wants to show people his rapping chops. He goes hard on some these tracks; the production is great as well on this album too. My favorite songs on this album are “Shaka Zulu”, “God Talk”, and “Muh Fucka”.
“Shaka Zulu” is a great track with a great beat. I love Tyga’s flow on this song; it goes perfect with the beat. The sound affects on this track are on point as well; Tyga’s lyrics on this are on point as well too. This song goes hard too; it’s a banger for sure. It is perfect song to bump with friends; I don’t really see this going on in a club or anything though.
“God Talk” this song sounds like a pump jam to me. It has Tyga from beginning to end go off, he puts his all on this track. I can see this song being on someone’s gym playlist for sure, it gets you motivated and gets you going. When the beat starts it automatically lets you know that this song is about to be pump up jam it just has that feel to it.
“Muh Fucka” is a song that sounds like Tyga would be on. This song Tyga changed his flow on this track and it really caught me by surprise. He sounds great when he isn’t doing the same thing over and over again. Tyga sounds angry on this track especially when he says ” Feel like Pac on hit em up”. Whoever has him angry, he should thank him because he sounds pretty dope when he is angry on a track.
This album is pretty good; I was pretty impressed with Tyga on this album. It didn’t sound like the same Tyga that I have been hearing since his first studio album. The album has a lot of good songs but some I couldn’t really get into, and that’s okay. But as was writing this album review it looks like spotify pulled Tyga’s album off. At the moment I am not sure why they pulled it off, maybe Cash Money got a hold of them and forced them to take it down. As well he didn’t release for iTunes, he wanted to give it away for free and let people stream the album. Whenever the album gets back on spotify I suggest giving it a listen.
