To the average watcher, one might assume that the music that was to come out of the speakers was going to be run-of-the-mill or even downright unimpressive. There’s savagery in the swamp. There is something all-enveloping and homey about the harmonies that let me know that everything was going to be okay. I mean. Songs landed on this list for my appreciation of their musicality, and/or their entertainment value, and/or their relations to strong memories of mine from 2016. I can’t even talk about the Grammys…it was unfair that Bey did not take home Best Album. And the wordsmithing! Lil’ Wayne) – Ariana Grande.

I have been attacked. I really tried to get into this original song but couldn’t until I heard this remix. I am a gay black man. Thread starter sɐǝɹpu∀ Start date Dec 31, 2016; sɐǝɹpu∀ riverrun. ( Log Out /  West was interviewed saying that Life of Pablo was a gospel album (I think this is a bit of a stretch, as I’ve never heard a gospel song with lyrics about “bleached a**holes” like one of the songs on this album…), but this song definitely sits firmly in the gospel tradition while at the same pulling in elements from electronic and hip-hop. I liked the concept of seeing Luke literally through the eyes of the girl is wooing and talking to. Thanks for the tune, and helping to make my year special. Never been crazy about Lorde, but this pairing was to die for. I know this song was a commercial hit. I also LOVE the arm-back-and-forth-in-the-air-hand-waving dance move (best embodied at 3:03). Brian Anderson and Jim Thiebaud are no strangers to SOTY parties, Mike bro management: Sieben, Gilbert and Burnett, Matt B and Clive DDave and Jerome behind the scenes making dreams come true, From SOTY trophy to photographer, Big Ern's got us covered, Ryan Lovell, Grant Hatfield and Elijah Berle, Don't fight the feeling it's time to unwind. The video is also bomb. While Luke Christopher is not the best rapper I have ever heard, he does the song justice. The name of the song comes from an experience that the Apostle Paul (where the “Pablo” in Life of Pablo comes from) has while heading to Damascus in the Book of Acts in the bible. What is the Meaning of Pride for this Gay Black Man?

In the song, Kanye is discussing that divine connection in his work and in what drives him. It has got a robust big band feel and perfectly merges it with electro-funk.

The visual album definitely helped elevate the themes and mystique of this piece of art. This song though, I thought, was a dazzling love song.

Niels Bennett, Rob Wootton, Blake Carpenter and a roster of all-time Florida figures wreck the streets and creeks on Evan Smith’s hammer-filled expedition. She is also a brilliant arranger. Hands down. She is also a self-proclaimed synesthetic, combining colors and visuals in her music. The top 8 who have put their bodies on the line for SOTY 2016 are here and need you help to help them gain the precedent they wish for! Let’s be real though, Chance’s verse is really the highlight of this song.

Lyrically, the verse is top notch and may be one of the best he has ever done. Check it out for some additional vocals.

Simple and repetitive even, but the groove is sold, like its name. It’s much more interesting to hear about music that you wouldn’t regularly be exposed to. What can I say?


Some argue that he has mental health problems. Last year, a video featuring a somewhat downplayed and soft spoken young woman stepping up to present her music to Pharrell Williams in a master’s class at NYU Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music went viral. SOTY 2016. Congrats to the finalists, Elijah Berle, Kyle Walker, Justin ‘Figgy’ Figueroa, Aaron ‘Jaws’ Homoki, Tiago Lemos, Evan Smith, Dennis Busenitz & Daan Van Der Linden. While she is an incredible vocalist, overall I wasn’t impressed by this album. Grant and Tom Taylor’s part will warm your cold heart. I also find him adorable (and yes, I know he’s only like 23…). The Industry’s Vermin is a Hip-Hop track about the way the Industry, we all know to be corrupt, treats Definitely one to add to your “chill” playlist. Kill A Punk For Rock & Roll, Danava and Rappin 4-Tay took the stage and blasted some 'drums, Phelper hyped the crowd and Kyle Walker (and his parents) took home the only trophy that matters. The ultralight beam, then, is a direct line from God to man on earth. Kill A Punk For Rock & Roll, Danava and Rappin 4-Tay took the stage and blasted some 'drums, Phelper hyped the crowd and Kyle Walker (and his parents) took home the only trophy that matters. The Text Widget allows you to add text or HTML to your sidebar. And the chord progression of the piano and vocals from “my lonely ear” to the finish of “walls of your world” (here starting at 0:36) may be one of the most beautiful things I’ve heard in music in a nice long while. I started this in late 2015, so for this year I have detailed information. GT, Brock, Clark, Plunkett, T Gloves and a pack of ATL heavy hitters build up the ‘crete and tear down the street. A guiding light. The song is what it claims to be—gooey. Edit them in the Widget section of the, SOTW: Hump Day Encouragement from a Divine Singing Voice, Resting Before “the Next Deaths Come”: A Reflection on Ahmaud Arbery. He went on to describe her music as nothing he had heard before. Thanks to Monster and everybody that came out, watched the vids or read the mag in '16. Raney barrels through pool crust and dirty ditches like a runaway train. The 2016 SOTY party was a major rager!

Almost in a fever dream, Kanye stayed up all hours pulling in artists (everyone from Kirk Franklin and The-Dream to Donnie Trumpet), with the help of Bentley (some fun facts include (1) Justin Bieber actually sang for the track but his portion was not included (2) Kelly Price’s portion was written by her and recorded in a studio across the country in a manner of hours and appears just as it was sent to the team (3) the song was originally intended to be the album’s outro).

Jennifer Hartswick) – Big Gigantic. ( Log Out /  ( Log Out /  I said in a previous post that if Chance wasn’t nominated for Best New Artist, this guy would have taken it hands down. I am not sure how I discovered Eryn Allen Kane but I need her to immediately drop a full album. ( Log Out /  While I said that “Gold” by Kiiara was the best song of the summer, this definitely was THE song of the summer. This song is also fantastic for exercise…particularly if you are running late and need to get somewhere in a hurry. Brilliant. Spotify (unavailable) / YouTube (there is not a high quality version available, unfortunately). Haim) – Calvin Harris.

Raney pays tribute to the bowl burners and trailblazers that inspire his constant carnage. They even included the blinks! I am not lying. The song was co-written by Beyoncé, Kevin Garrett, and the incredibly talented James Blake (who sings on “Forward”) and I definitely attribute some of the musical complexity and elegance of this song to Blake. First and foremost, my list is biased to my preference in music. ( Log Out /  Future) – Chance the Rapper. I loved the use of the motif of hand games rhymes to be a backbone of the song. The simple snapping and piano as a backdrop leading up to the huge chords at the end of the track. There also something about Kane’s articulation of “Lies like spring water you drink from every night” with that guitar at 2:06 that gives goosebumps every time. It builds with reigned intensity, starting with sweet harmonies and a bassline through to 1:24 when you hear the horns come in full force and take over. PANGEA.

I have a tendency to relegate the people I date to a particular song because of events related to the boy and the song. Read on to see him skate fast and honor the past in our November '20 issue. The visual at the end of the video where all of the dancers are in all white and the group slows down to half time for a bit is pretty sweet. You can use a text widget to display text, links, images, HTML, or a combination of these. I loved your album. References to bible verses, Harriet Tubman, the show Martin and Arthur, Sia…fam, he rhymes with Pangea. Congrats Kyle and thanks to everyone who was a part of making this happen.

Parameters for my Songs of the Year list: I contend that this was the best song of last year. George Bush doesn’t care about black people. Maybe it’s “ocean” in the title, but this song screams “get to the beach and dance in the sun, NOW”, Looking forward to more from GTA. This song was my favorite by far. I played the life out of this song. Brook brings out the best in everyone.

The beat and overall tone of the song is so funky and slick and…well…gooey (to be clear, I am describing the song, not the boy). Maggie Rogers describes her music as an influence of folk and electronic, fusing together sounds that she likes and hears every day. It has got horns, cowbell, strong bass, and synths and it bounces between this very stripped down R&B to what sounds like the intro to “Strawberry Letter 22” and then settles into the chilliest groove in the chorus. From the moment that I started the album and heard this, I knew that we were in for a more honest and vulnerable Beyoncé, who has always been known for keeping her personal life personal.

Rogers EP, Now that the Light is Fading, comes out this Thursday.

Additionally, “Truth being told, we used to movies and bowl / We used to Netflix and roll” is one of my favorite lyrics of the year. “Dangerous Woman” may be the best song that Ariana has created, but this was my real jam off this album. The story behind the song, told in most depth by longtime friend, producer, and “butler” Fonzworth Bentley, is compelling in and of itself. I don’t know how I found this song, but I am so glad that I did.
