Weekend – [Ashley Mehta]

If Ashley Mehta has a million fans, then I am one of them. If Ashley has ten fans, then I am one of them. If Ashley has one fan, then I am THAT fan. If Ashley has no fans, that means I am dead. Though the world of TikTok singer/songwriters is filled with undeniable talent and people trying to stand apart from the crowd – nobody does it quite as well (or as effortlessly) as Ashley Mehta. This month our savior returns with “Weekend”, an energy-filled and optimistic anthem about romantic rumination and internal tension. Though Confucius said that desire is the root of all suffering, Ashley Mehta can’t help but “want it better than the weekend” – and I don’t blame her. Between an affinity for songwriting that is just as clever as it is understated, and a knack for vocal harmonies that could rival many of pop’s modern titans – Ashley Mehta is a powerhouse ready for pop music’s upper echelon. Preceded by July’s single “Facetime Freestyle”, I’m praying that “Weekend” is not just a banger primed for our weekly rotations, but also a harbinger of more music to come. Until the time for another new single comes, …

While there is no time for visuals, me and my team are avidly working on putting together a banger for all to enjoy in the near future.” he stated.

Get Refreshed: August ’22

“Get Refreshed” is a monthly column by Billie Bugara covering all things digital in the music world. Refresh yourself here. Mental Makes Music That Sounds Like Mental Mental’s career has been fascinating to follow. I found their music pretty much just like most other people in the grander “pandemic era” of Internet music – through our Discord/Twitter/Whatever communities. In 2020, Mental was an artist that I knew had a bright future ahead of them, and was someone I had so much faith in due to their organic approach to songwriting, styling, and behavior overall. Their attitude towards music is unlike anyone else’s; they are light, simple, and down to Earth. They’re just Mental… and you know what I’m talking about if you’ve heard the music and/or talked to them as a friend. Friend… I don’t think there’s single word that best describes everything Mental is about than that. Even if you don’t know them personally, Mental is a friend. Their music is friendly, and their artistic nature revolves around friendship. I’ve observed this throughout their lengthy career now, but that’s not what makes it so fascinating like I expressed before. What makes it that way is just how much they’ve worked to make …

Big Steppa – [Flo Milli]

I wanted to start out this article by saying how I feel like Flo Milli is a bit of an enigma, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that she is just herself, and all of the success she has experienced in the last couple of years is a part of a plan to take over the world, something she has been succeeding in doing consistently. She simply has this justly arrogant, confident aura that merges with an innocent, playful persona that I have no idea how she is able to pull off so effortlessly, but she makes it work better than anyone else ever could, and this has played a massive role in her blowing up to the levels of fame has reached today. Earlier this summer, Flo released her debut album You Still Here, Ho ?, a dominating 40+ minute project that features 17 songs and verses from Babyface Ray, Rico Nasty, and even Tiffany Pollard, and although I have admittedly not had an opportunity to really dive into this effort completely and appreciate it in its entirety, her Amber Park-directed music video for the project’s cut “Big Steppa” has me impatiently waiting for …
