I remember 2013-2014 when there was a release each week that had a new track that was 100% made to be a "banger" and nothing else. Like the tracks stated in the subtitle, all of these (and more), were dropped in a period where everyone wanted to take the #1 radio spot.
I believe this is the period when hip hop really rose to be the biggest genre in the world (but now declining in popularity slowly). Previously all the radio played were Taylor Swift or Swedish House Mafia-type-house. Then these tracks came and they all worked out well to be the tracks to play at the gym, but probably most importantly at parties where the people wanted high energy music, and previously it had been house, but with all these high energy hip hop tracks, they could play them instead, and word got around.
I wouldn't complain if we entered another one of these eras, where all the artists made two or three singles each with this type of energy. Some do, and one of the forefathers for this was and is Future, who released an album today.
On the brink of R&B and hip hop, we also have Toro Y Moi who dropped an album today. The whole album is pure quality content, so I couldn't resist to include one of his as well. And there's more!
Have a nice weekend,
Til' next time!
