“Rollin” by Calvin Harris feat. Future and Khalid
The hit “Rollin” consists of soulful singing and auto tuned rap to compose a good vibe song. Piano notes followed by a persistent rhythmic beat compliments the catchy chorus as contrasting voices of the artists creates a harmonizing dynamic. These parts unify to create lively tones throughout the song.
“The Race” by Tay-k
Tay k’s song the race was released this past June the day he was caught by police for capital murder and other charges. He is a 17 year old newly popular rapper, and I like this song because of the catchy chorus.
“Tsunami” by Russ
“Tsunami” is a well produced song, with complex lyrics and a catchy beat. The artist uses powerful lyrics and combines pop music and hip hop in this song that is perfect for any occasion.
