Coming down the track with new tracks...

Coming down the track with new tracks…

When it comes to executive orders to better the state of our music industry, I think we can sign off on getting all of you readers out in the blog world up-to-date with the latest releases. After all, it’s not a wall. Here are some of this week’s new album and singles:

TRAIN – a girl a bottle a boat (iTunes)
All aboard! The latest set from this San Francisco band features “Play That Song”, which recently went top ten on Hot AC radio. That sounds like some chart and soul to me! It also features a collaboration with Priscilla Renea, who hit the pop chart as an artist in 2009 with “Dollhouse”. Pat Monahan and crew have earned five top ten albums on the Billboard 200 since 2001, and the sixth could be on its way soon.

MIGOS – Culture (iTunes)
If you’re into raindrops and drop-tops, then you probably know the chart-topping song “Bad And Boujee” by this Georgia rap trio. As it ranks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, it’s also a top ten hit on the Rhythmic and Urban radio listings. This album will receive a large boost due to stream and track-equivalent units, which is not “Bad” at all when it comes to chart placement.

KEHLANI – SweetSexySavage (iTunes)
With cuts like “CRZY” and “Distraction” building up millions of plays at streaming services, the California performer is bound to find some nice support at those platforms for release week. It’s likely to perform much better than her last mixtape, You Should Be Here.

More albums out this week: Aquilo‘s Silhouettes (iTunes), Bell Biv Devoe‘s Three Stripes (iTunes), Brantley Gilbert‘s The Devil Don’t Sleep (iTunes), Erik Hassle‘s Innocence Lost (iTunes), Japandroids‘s Near To The Wild Heart Of Life (iTunes), Joshua Radin‘s The Fall (iTunes), Lauren Alaina‘s Road Less Traveled (iTunes), NOW That’s What I Call Music, Vol. 61 (iTunes)
