Review: Singles for the week 4/5

Kiss Me More (feat. SZA) - song by Doja Cat, SZA | SpotifyKiss Me More

Doja Cat, SZA

Release date: April

Record label: Kemosabe Records/RCA Records

“Kiss Me More” features the sugary vocals of Doja Cat complemented by SZA’s signature raspy, raw tone. The track is a bubbly, candycoated pop hit, but without the feature from SZA, “Kiss Me More” would sound exactly like the rest of Doja Cat’s discography, specifically her 2019 album, “Hot Pink.”

 

Tierra Whack – Link Lyrics | Genius LyricsLink

Tierra Whack 

Release date: April 6

Record label: Interscope Records

“Link” has a childlike feel with a sample that mimics the sounds of popping bubble wrap and a synth line resembling that of a xylophone. Surprisingly, this youthful tone works well with Whack’s vocals, as her unique flow is essentially just a nasaly rambling mumble. 

 

RITT MOMNEY RELEASES NEW SONG “SET THE TABLE” FEATURING CLAUD – Sony Music  CanadaSet The Table 

Ritt Momney, Claud

Release date: April 9

Record label: Disruptor Records/Columbia 

Ritt Momney collaborates with upandcoming alternative artist Claud for a change of pace compared to the rest of his discography. The electric guitar riffs featured in the track give “Set The Table” a harsher sound.

 

Wave of You 

Surfaces

Release date: April 8

Record label: Surfaces Music/10K Projects 

The aptly named “Wave of You” sounds like a sunny day at the beach. Similar to the rest of Surfaces’ music, the track is filled with bright instrumentals, a simple beat and feel-good lyrics. If you’re looking for an addition to your summer playlist, “Wave of You” is perfect.
