#NewMusicMondays May 1 2017

At the top of this week we have Wale in with his new album “Shine”. Folarin has in the past been mentioned alongside Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Drake, Big Sean etc. and with all four having pretty recent albums that did well (Sales/reviews/impact), we hope the album is of a similar ilk. Either way, Wale always brings that creativity and this should be a good listen.

Young M.A. in as the second recommendation with “Herstory”. The rather short project seems promising given the life she’s lived and things she’s faced. Based on “oouuuuuu” (not sure that’s spelt right) we know she can make a hit, it eould be great to see if she packs in more substance in here!!

Finly MJB is back. I mean, she’s never really left but by all accounts this is ger returning to the soulful Mary J who skirts soulfully between RnB and hip-hop. Not a rap album yet again but her catalogue means she can do what she wants!!!
