This week’s new music releases had quite the BOOM! factor while turning back the clock, but which one absolutely blew you away?
BTS finally lit up this Friday (Aug. 20) like “Dynamite,” the group’s highly-anticipated English single with a “little funk and soul” that’s bound to get you off your feet with a chorus that only gains more fuel and speed.
While the K-pop boy band contributes to the disco-pop revival, Mariah Carey throws it back to ’90s R&B by dusting off her previously written, yet newly recorded collaboration with Lauryn Hill “Save The Day.” Off her B-sides album The Rarities, “Save The Day” samples Ms. Hill’s vocals from the Fugees hit “Killing Me Softly” for an immaculate instant classic.
Speaking of powerhouse collabs, Pharell Williams teams up with Jay-Z for “Entrepreneur,” which was released as part of a TIME cover package titled The New American Revolution and focuses on how Black business owners, from Tyler, the Creator to Issa Rae, who make cameos in the celebratory music video, can help erode systemic racism.
