1 These Walls – Kendrick Lamar f/ Bilal, Anna Wise & Thundercat

発売ホヤホヤのKendrick Lamarのアルバム To Pimp a Butterfly から。アルバムは 全体的にいい感じ、おしゃれ度アップ、ネオソウルぽい、渋いです。ドロドロHip Hop命 ヘネシー大好きお兄さん達がクラブで喜びそうかはわからないけど、そんなお兄さん達も絶対車運転中に聞くのは好きでしょう。初めてKendrick…を聞いた時から思ったんですが、曲によっては Outkast に似てるなぁ(トラックとか) と思います。みんなも大好きですよね、Outkast。なんだか 懐かしい感じのするこの曲。ネオソウル代表者 Bilalも入ってます。生ギター、シンセ.. 生バンドでのパフォーマンスみたいです!

The first one I picked is this song from Kendrick Lamar’s brandnew album “To Pimp a Butterfly”. It is a ‘90s neo-soul throwback and may not satisfy hardcore Hennessy loving Hip Hop heads at clubs but I bet they enjoy listening to the album in the car. My first impression on Kendrick back then was that he sounded so much like Outkast on some tracks. We love Outkast, don’t we? Featuring vocals by neo-soul King, Bilal and acoustic guitar, synthesizer and other instruments “These Walls” brings back old soul music

1- All Day – Kanye West f/ Theophilus & Allan Kingdom

キム・カダーシアンと結婚してから、色々言われてますが……….。この曲はかっこいいです。ミュージック・ビデオも有名な Director Steve McQueenが作って 白黒フィルムでとっても渋い仕上がり。

So much attention he’s getting ever since he got married to Kim Kardashian……….but in my opinion Kanye’s latest single “All Day” is real cool. Watch out the Steve McQueen (director of 12 Years A Slave) music clip, a pretty minimal black and white stylish visual.

2- Five More Hours – Deorro & Chris Brown

去年ヒットした プロデューサー Deorroの Five Hoursって曲の、ボーカル入りバージョン。Chris Brownが歌ってます。Yeah x3 みたいにノリがいい ポップ・ダンスミュージックです。クラブでかけたら絶対ウケるの間違いなしです。ダンスミュージックだけど、Chris Brownはヒップホップ・ファンから絶大な人気なんで、みんなに通用するありがたい一曲になります。

Originally released on Avicii’s label, “Five Hours” by Deorro was given a pop makeover from mega-star Chris Brown changing the title to “Five More Hours”. Just like “Yeah x 3” it is a strong pop dance song and a great club banger. This pleases both EDM and Hip-Hop fans. Thanks to CB’s crossover appeal.

3-m.A.A.d city – Kendrick Lamar f/ MC Eiht

彼のラストアルバムが出たのはもう2年前になるのですね。時間が経つの早いですね!彼を一躍スターにした大ヒット・アルバムの中でも人気のこの曲、結構時間経ってるのに、この曲 やたらと今でもクラブで耳にします。同じコンプトン出身ラッパー、レジェンド MC Eihtがフューチャーリングされてるところが また渋いです。

This song from his second album was released more than 2 years ago as Lamar’s major label debut and still being played at clubs all over the place. One thing I love about this song is that it’s featuring his fellow Compton rapper, legendary MC Eiht.
