word on the street is that it’s 2016. somehow, we’re already a couple months in, which means it’s two in review time already.
the beginning of the year is typically a pretty slow time for music, but it certainly hasn’t been that way this year. i’m glad to report that there’s a lot of good new music and it’s reflected on this mix. there’s a little bit of everything, ranging from the new kanye to indie pop to the blossoming alt r&b genre.
with all that said, here’s the lineup for the january/february edition of two in review:
1. kanye west: famous (ft. rihanna) [from the life of pablo]
2. alunageorge: i’m in control (ft. popcaan) [from TBA]
