Jamal Science – The Heavens

Jamal Science wrote this one for the culture, for Chicago. As much as I hate that the circumstances that contribute to this kind of police misconduct still exist, I’m so glad we have voices like Jamal’s to express how we’re all feeling. 

Manny Torres – I Still Stand

Manny Torres, if you’re reading this, thank you. I needed this message today. It’s been a rough one, but the reminder to get back up again is much appreciated. This song has a very movie soundtrack feel. It wants to be in the trailer to the Denzel Washington/John David Washington film I’ve been hoping Spike Lee would make for a long time. 

Sadé Eboné – Heading 

Nothing but good vibes here. A slice of bright, danceable optimism from a singer who has just as bright a future. If the Dora Milaje had a mixtape they played getting right for battle, this would definitely be Track 1. 

Andreaus Haley – Love Me

There are a couple of feet of snow out there, so tell me why this song makes me want to get into a drop top and cruise Lake Shore Drive? The sample, the beat, the bars, all tough. I will still love this song when my summer jam playlist gets made, I’ll tell you that right now.
