Although personal and interesting, the new Baby Keem album “The Melodic Blue” is consistently mediocre.
Featuring sounds ranging from hip-hop to R&B to traditional African music, “Black Panther: The Album” comes off a bold celebration of black culture.
It may not be a straightforward classic like “good kid, m.A.A.d city,” or sonically experimental like “To Pimp a Butterfly,” but it has mass appeal.
The Weeknd has created one of the most fun and hypnotizing albums of 2016. His themes of materialism and betrayal immerse listeners into “Starboy”.
The most captivating part of the album is not the rhymes, nor the blend of beats and verses. It’s a simple conversation between two great artists.
