Middle Child – [J. Cole]

Yesterday Dreamville leader J. Cole blessed the world with his brand new offering titled “Middle Child”, and it’s easily the hottest record of 2019 so far. I’m not the only one that thinks that though obviously, if you check the numbers this song is going CRAZY, it’s been #1 trending on Youtube since it’s release and I don’t see it slowing down. You fill find Cole addressing his naysayers on this track as well as flexing his unmatched lyrical ability and foreshadowing what is to come in the near future, trust me when I say it’s an all around pleasing tune. Take a few minutes of your night to check out this brand new record below and if you enjoy it be sure to share it with a friend!

Church – [Samm Henshaw] ft. [EARTHGANG]

After the Revenge Of The Dreamers sessions, I’m anxious to get my hands on any and all Dreamville-related music I can. Today, that comes in the form of an EARTHGANG-assisted effort from Samm Henshaw entitled “Church.” It’s a fitting title for the Josh Grant-produced number, which, thanks to the anthemic clapping and energetic, choir-esque background vocals, has a vibrant, spiritual vibe. Henshaw kicks off the effort, showcasing his smooth, soulful vocals, and he knocks it out of the park on the crescendoing chorus that brings the energy to a fever pitch. As expected, EARTHGANG comes through with their signature bounce and personality, Venus & Dot sharing the back half of the track to deliver a non-denominationally spiritual message. A fun-loving, colorful effort comes equipped with a VHS-inspired lyric video guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

A collaboration I would have never thought about was Moneybagg Yo and J.

Cole. From the laundry mat to the local park Moneybagg Yo can be seen in his new video for “Say Nah” giving back and flexing at the same time as money falls wherever he walks.

Off Deez – [J.I.D] x [J. Cole]

J.I.D is a favorite here at Lyrical Lemonade and so is Dreamville leader J. Cole, so when I saw that they hooked up on a new track I stopped everything I was doing & gave it my upmost attention. As if this record couldn’t look any more appetizing the ChaseTheMoney production credit guaranteed that it was going to be a hit, but after listening to this one several times through I was truly stunned at just how well it turned out, it exceeded my already high standing expectations. To hear any artist out spit like this is just something you don’t see everyday, the way that they switched the pace of their flows back and forth throughout this track was very impressive, furthermore solidifying both of them as top tier emcees in the game. Stream this brand new offering below and if you like it be sure to follow J.I.D on Spotify & get in tune with his movement, I am sure this is not the last time we will hear about this song.
