This week’s selection is from the new albums on my listening rotation.
1. John Legend – Who Do We Think We Are
One of my favourite songs on the album. Despite the perspective the video (and my subsequent re-listening to the lyrics) presents, I will continue to maintain that this song is about the pseudo-arrogance of falling/growing/staying in love in the face of everything that’s wrong with this world and the number of times other people (and even you) have gotten it wrong.
2. Drake – Too Much ft Sampha
Probably my absolute favourite on the album. Maybe the one song I’m not ashamed to like. I enjoy Sampha a lot on this track; also I really think Drake is at his best when he’s in his vulnerable, reflective, personal storyteller persona.
3. Janelle Monae – Primetime ft Miguel
Happy Hump Day!
