Anne-Marie – Ciao Adios
With up to 111 million views on Youtube, this song is definitely worth talking about!
Anne-Marie released the music video back in March 2017 and the views have racked up ever since.
Anne-Marie also did an acoustic version with none other than Ed Sheeran in May 2017 which was sonically impressive.
Anne-Marie has other notable songs such as ‘Alarm’, which was released in 2016 and ‘Then’ released last year.

This 2 part mixtape from, the Croydon based rap duo, Krept & Konan gives listeners a choice of the vibe they want to be in.
7 Days side gives us raw bars and ‘metafives’ throughout. The 7 Day side is definitely for when you are about to go raving and need to hype yourself up or just motivational music for the gym. The 7 nights side is for when you want to netflix and chill with bae or just have some calm songs for a long drive. Both sides has something for every one and the double sided mixtape was a intelligent move by the rap duo as it provides them with a choice of music for whichever type of crowd they perform for.
This should be the type of mixtape the duo should release now and then.
The mixtape has notable bangers such as ‘For Me’, ‘Wo Wo Wo’, ‘Khalas’, and ‘Ask Flipz’.
We will definitely be looking forward to more music videos and hopefully a bonus track from them this year.

The album name was also painted on top of the pink ‘trap’ house. The trap house has become a well-known location for hip hop and rap fans in South Atlanta. Almost like a museum or a chill out spot.
Previous albums from 2 Chainz are based on a T.R.U story (B.O.A.T. S), B.O.A.T.S 2: Me Time, ColleGrove
2 Chainz has other mixtapes such as Daniel Son: Necklace Don, Trap-A-Velli and T.R.U REALigion.

The visuals to the track 4:44 certainly tells a story with a beautiful ending featuring Jay Z and wife Beyoncé. They are shown performing on stage together followed by a shot of their daughter Blue Ivy.
In the ultimate lemonade response, Jay Z admits to the cheating as he states “If my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do / If they ain’t look at me the same, I would prolly die with all the shame / You did what with who? What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate, you risked that for Blue?”
The song sheds some light on how there were cracks in their marriage whilst at the same time showcasing footages of some of the issues in the state regarding African Americans.

This 50 cent throwback is not a very long throw back. The original ‘Im The Man’ track came out in 2015 with Sonny Digital on it with 50. The song was released as part of the Kenan mixtape. The mixtape was part of the character promotion for 50 cents TV show Power, which he produced.
The ‘Im the Man’ track was re-released with Chris Brown on this version, a video was also released. The song has become more popular due to the addition of Chris Brown vocals and his verse.
The track is arguably 50 cents best release in 2016/17. We definitely hope to hear more club bangers and hits from 50. He hasn’t stated that he is officially retiring from releasing music.
