The Spotifive: New Hip Hop Singles From Major Lazer, Meek Mill, Yo Gotti & Nicki and More…(June 5-12)

Major Lazer featuring Travis Scott, Camila Cabello, and Quavo “Know No Better”

This is the title track on Major Lazer’s EP, Know No Better. We have heard Travis Scott and Migos together, “Kelly Price” from the Migos’ album, Culture, but we have never heard Camila Cabello solo with any other rapper than MGK and none of them have worked with Major Lazer previously. Everyone blended their individual sounds perfectly with this song which has the potential to be a radio hit.

Meek Mill featuring Chris Brown and Ty Dolla Sign “Whatever You Need”

This is the single from Meek’s upcoming third studio album, Dreams and Nightmares 2: Wins and Losses and this is the hit Meek Mill needs right now. “All Eyes On You,” a single by Meek Mill featuring Chris Brown and ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj, was his highest charting song to date, so it only makes sense he would call on Chris Brown, paired with the incredibly talented Ty Dolla $ign to deliver another catchy hook. Produced by DJ Mustard this song could be Meek Mill’s next highest charting single.

Yo Gotti featuring Nicki Minaj “Rake It Up”

This is a song on the Yo Gotti and Mike Will Made It collaborative Tidal and Vevo exclusive album, Gotti Made-It. We haven’t heard Nicki Minaj and Yo Gotti together since “Down In The DM Remix” last year, (and “5 Star Remix” in 2012 and Gucci Mane’s “Coca Coca” in 2010). Yo Gotti and Nicki are rapping about their lifestyles and their rules when it comes to rap beefs. Nicki isn’t spitting the greatest bars in this song, but it’s always good to hear her and Yo Gotti together.

Rendezvous

This is the last song from PartyNextDoor’s EP he dropped, much to everyone’s surprise and delight, and talks about, of course, a girl he wants. With the mesmerizing beat and Party’s melodic vocals, this song could be the single from this EP and get some radio play.

Love N Hennessy

This is a single from upcoming artist, A.CHAL, off his mixtape “ON GAZ”. This song, including several phrases in Spanish, is about how Hennessy mixes in with his relationships. This song was produced by FKi 1st, known for his work with Post Malone, 2 Chainz, and Diplo, and it was also produced by DJ Spinz, known for his work with Future, Ty Dolla $ign, Young Thug, and Metro Boomin. Zane Lowe debuted this song on Beats 1.
