We open the #10TRACKS with a thumbtack of Italy, inside the new of Iggy Azalea “LOLA”. The Australian rapper resumes “Mambo Italiano” (1954) and chooses the emerging English Alice Chater to sing the refrain.
From the beginnings as an indie in 2016 to the unhoped-for success thanks to “ROXANNE”, a track loved by social TikTok users for their videos. It’s the case of Arizona Zervas that will arrive within a few weeks in the top5 USA and UK.
The emo-trap dream team comes together in one track. They are Triple Redd, Juice WRLD and YNW Melly with “6 KISS”.
We remain in the field of sentimental and post-adolescent torment with the emerging Trevor Daniel and a piece from the debut EP “Homesick”. – “FALLING”
A committed and provocative rapper, Puerto Rican American-born Princess Nokia is about to release her fourth album “Curveball” preceded by “BALENCIAGA”.
Among the collaborations that recur over the years, there is the all-Canadian one between PARTYNEXTDOOR and Drake, here in afrobeat version. – “LOYAL”
It will be released on December 13 “Heavy Is The Head”, the highly anticipated second album by the British Stormzy that brings together Burna Boy and a certain Ed Sheeran in “OWN IT”.
We stay in the UK with Fredo up to #13 on the English chart with “NETFLIX & CHILL”.
RAY BLK, 26 years old born in Nigeria but now Londoner by adoption, has not yet emerged fully but is constantly in “ACTION” to achieve it.
Let’s close the #10TRACKS with the single debut of Skye, a young American who was about to sign with the XXXTENTACION label just before his death. A posthumous collaboration (and a nice sample of Blink 182) seems like a nice way to remember it.
