I’ve took some time to really register all of the events that have taken place. Now finally as a black man, I can speak out on this subject and give my opinion.
This past Friday on April 17th, Rapper Dababy dropped his third studio album, Blame it on Baby. Just after 7 months of releasing his commercial successful second studio album, KIRK, he returns with another album during our current COVID-19 pandemic.
Music has been one of the biggest forms of communication since forever. We as music listeners , listen everyday to different songs that relate and talk about different themes, lessons and challenges of life. This has been common for a long time as I started to notice a pattern for this. These are mostly common in hip-hop or pop songs on the radio. There are many songs that we love to sing that have one common theme that is always brought up in these songs: Drugs. Some won’t bother to say it because of how good the song is, we do not care what it is truly about. We will still listen and praise the artist and song. I believe that music artist should stop talking about Drugs in their songs and start doing something about it.
Well, it was an another exciting weekend for music again. Philadelphia Native Rapper Lil Uzi Vert dropped his long awaited album, Eternal Atake this past Friday at midnight.
It has been three long awaited years and I think it is time to ask the question: Where is The Weeknd? We all remember him 3 or 4 years ago as the man who dropped classic hits like “Can’t Feel My Face,” “Often,” and “The Hills.” The Weeknd was at the top of the charts as being an original R&B/Pop singer from Toronto, so what changed in the last few years and what has he been doing since then?
