Seeing Logic hop onto the official remix of Sam Smith’s sophomore hit, “Pray”, was surprising enough but we never expected it to get the video treatment. But here we are; it’s got a ton of eye catching imagery and a lavish color palette, and while we don’t think it’s as good as the original, it is a nice way to give the single second legs. Gallant must be preparing to drop his sophomore album, because the singles and videos keep coming. “Doesn’t Matter” is a smooth, more traditional R&B number, and the video, while nothing special, makes great use of contrasting colors. Chicago rapper, and Chance affiliate, Towkio literally(?) went to space to drop his last album and for his single, “Morning View”, he keeps the space themes going as he finds himself on the moon facetiming with someone that’s definitely not SZA. Still not sold on him as an artist though, it kind of sounds like a Post Malone throwaway.
Just as George Clinton announced his retirement from touring, we thought that might be the last we heard from his legendary group, Parliament, but surprise surprise. Not only are they back, but they’ve brought with them a new single in who knows how many years. It may feature Scarface and lambos, but the funk is still very much alive with this one and we’re glad to report that it’s actually much better than we thought a 2018 Parliament single ever could be. I feel like we haven’t heard that much from Tory Lanez since he dropped his sophomore effort, maybe due to touring, but he’s back with a video for “B.I.D.” And just as you could probably guess from the lyrics, the video is filled to the brim with gorgeous women at a car wash, a car hop, and at the beach playing volleyball – you do the math.
