Best Songs of the Week Featuring CyHi the Prynce, Robin Thicke and Warren G
It’s been a long seven days and you know what that means: a new edition of Songs of the Week. Our previous edition featured a few solid tracks ranging from Alicia Keys’ new single, “28 Thousand Days” to Bridget Kelly’s latest Mack Wilds-assisted tune, “Act Like That,” which has gotten its fair share of spins around The Boombox office.
Last week may have been light on music releases, but this week has been the opposite and several artists have liberated new tracks for your listening pleasure. After mulling through the possible picks we managed to narrow it down to three winners.
Did your favorite tune make the cut? Check it out below.
“Elephant in the Room”
G.O.O.D. Music is loaded with a roster of prominent talent that includes Kanye West, Big Sean, Travi$ Scott, Common and Pusha T among others. But one name that often gets lost in the shuffle is that of CyHi the Prynce. After catching the attention of Kanye West, the Georgia rapper joined the label and made his presence felt on West’s G.O.O.D. Fridays series and his fifth studio-album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. But nearly five years later, there’s no CyHi album and the rapper is fed up.
On his satirical diss track “Elephant in the Room,” CyHi kidnaps Yeezy and expresses his frustrations of being overlooked. This is a brilliant diss song and has us wondering if or when CyHi may actually drop a new full-length project.
The last time we heard from Robin Thicke, he was trying to save his marriage to his now ex-wife Paula Patton. He even went so far as to name his last album Paula in an attempt to steal back her heart. While the plan ultimately failed, the soulful crooner has bounced back with a new girlfriend as well as a potential hit song with “Back Together” featuring Nicki Minaj. The song is an uptempo selection that is sure to be the mood music for various shindigs in the coming months.
“Keep On Hustlin'”
Veteran producer Warren G has returned with his latest EP, Regulate… G Funk Era, Pt. 2, his first musical project in six years. To promote his new effort, the “Regulate” rapper dropped one of the week’s finest bangers, “Keep On Hustlin'” featuring Jeezy, Bun B, & a pothsumous appearance by Nate Dogg. The audio equivalent of a cruise down Sunset Blvd., the track sees Warren G serving up game alongside a few rap homies and sending a nod to the most beloved hook king of all-time. Rest in Peace, Nate Dogg.
