Summer starts now….or does it?
Memorial Day weekend is upon us and what is traditionally a time to honor the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military also carries a dual meaning of indulging in cold brews, nutcrackers, seafood boil, drunk uncles on the grill, everyone’s favorite auntie on the dance floor, and the oldest and latest tunes blaring at ignorant volumes from our speakers. AH! The signs of summer are upon us, so where’s the summer anthem(s)?
It’s been a fairly slow year for music in comparison to 2018 and usually, by this time a summer anthem would be building up steam on the radio and the lyrics would transform to Instagram captions for the masses.
Last Friday, May 17th DJ Khaled released his 11th studio album, “Father of Ashad” announcing “The Summer Starts Now”. Known as the King of Anthem’s Khaled’s latest album has 2 vibes on it that I think can be major players for Summer 2019, “You Stay” and “Wish Wish”.
I also think Megan The Stallion has a few tricks up her sleeves for the Hotties with the release of her project “Fever” and rapper DaBaby has been catching everyone’s attention as of late, so you never know.
As of right now the summer is still up for grabs, but let’s see if something catches fire during memorial day weekend.
