New to our Notion Now playlist this week, fresh cuts from Connie Constance, Gorillaz, Jelani Blackman, Fireboy DML, Rose Gray and more.
"Kamikaze" by Connie Constance
Watford’s finest, indie queen Connie Constance is back with this track from her aptly named ‘Miss Power’ album, giving us a dose of anthemic feminist rage just in time for the weekend. Perfect for grabbing a wine and shouting about your ex.
"Baby Queen" by Gorillaz
From their ‘Cracker Island’ album, Mr Albarn told the LA Times that the subject of this song is the queen of Thailand. Inspired by meeting the crown princess in the late 90s, she watched them perform none other than “Song 2”. Visiting Damon in a dream recently, the princess clearly made an impression.
"Sleepless Freestyle" by Jelani Blackman
Notion 91 star Jelani has followed his afrobeats inspired carni release with this darker freestyle.
"Coming Back for You" by Fireboy DML
The Wakanda Forever soundtrack seems to be the gift that keeps on giving, as Fireboy DML joins Rihanna on the album's current lineup.
"Promise Me" by Rose Gray
Dance-pop icon in waiting Rose Gray has released her latest banger, this time about giving someone one more chance.
"Warm" by K-Trap and Skepta
Two rap heavyweights not often sharing a bill, and with fashion collabs and recent shows between them - the grind doesn't stop for K-Trap and Skepta.
"No Confusion" by Ezra Collective
Our favourite jazzy outfit, you can rely on Ezra Collection to provide the dance ready harmony-heavy tunes. This one won't let you down.
"Carry It Well" by Sam Fischer
Another Notion 91 Magazine star, Sam's latest release is set to add to his billion streams and counting (not that he needs it). Focussing on mental health, "Carry It Well" is already a TikTok hit.
"Grime" by Louis Culture
Announcing a new EP alongside releasing fresh visuals to match (think retro Pharrell in the 90s), the Elevation Meditation collective member is definitely one to watch for 2023.
