Who doesn’t love them some Gunna at this point right? The man’s ability to make a catchy hook and ride his beats all the way through is always a great vibe. This song is no different. If you’re getting ready for a night out this surely be somewhere on your playlist.

So, I’ve been a super fan of Eric Bellinger for quite some time even though he hasn’t really made it mainstream just yet. A song that you might be familiar with of his is his hit single “G.O.A.T.” featuring Wale. Seriously this guy doesn’t make a bad song! He’s written for dozens of your favorite artist and is really beginning to push his own music more. This song is yet another feel good song for us ladies. It’s a song praising the beauty of woman and the layers of harmonizing will absolutely make you fall in love. You’ll thank me later.
“Love Supreme” x Nao

Yet another artist who hasn’t quite made there mark on the mainstream charts, but she’s certainly on her way. Her voice will honestly give you chills and her mix of contemporary soul is such a vibe. This song is more of an uptempo feel good tune that should definitely be in rotation. It’s about making mistakes and letting them go because it’s just a part of life and eventually we all grow from those things. It’s the perfect beach day song with your friends.
