Toronto, ON – Toronto artist Jordan Solomon just dropped a brand new summer island jam titled “Piña Colada.”
“Piña Colada” is an upbeat, low-key booty bounce song about summer love and catching feels. It so perfectly captures the vibes of summer romance, because love is basically just one big Piña Colada: it’ll cure your thirst, it’ll give you all sweetness you can handle, and then it’ll get you tipsy AF.
The song is so catchy that I can’t stop replaying this right now. The beat is such necessary island vibes. That, and Jordon also throws a few great little one-liners into his verses. Like when he drops the Derrick Rose bar: “Like I’m Derrick Rose/ Baby I don’t play.”
Toronto, ON – Toronto artists Dutch Revz and Stevie Davis recently got together to release this brand new collaboration titled “Link Up.” The track was executively produced by Kevin Rolly and Dutch Revz, and produced by Yonas-K.
“Link Up” is a summer vibes anthem anchored by tropical, downtempo production and bouncy drum line. It’s a song for all those times you want to hit someone with the “WYA?” text and link up. And the other person might not be as into the idea as you are. But you got liquor and the vibes are right, and you know what’s about to happen.
Basically, this track is the predecessor for everything that’s about to go down for the night after you slide into the DMs: “It’s been a while/ Baby I miss ya/ Let’s celebrate/ I got some liquor/ I said oh baby girl let’s link up.”
Brampton, ON – Earlier this weekend, Brampton R&B artist K. Forest dropped a brand new single titled “Reverse” (produced by dF).
“Reverse” is a downtempo summer anthem that’s intended as a double entendre. It’s a track about both love-making and regrets: “I want you to reverse/ I want you to reverse/ Slow/ Let’s see what we can earn / Make sure that we take it slow.”
On the one hand, it’s a song for anyone caught up in regrets. It’s a track for all the moments when you wish you could just press a rewind button and take things back a few steps. But it’s also an incredibly intimate song about the heat-of-the-moment when you know if you touch a female’s button the right kind of way, she’ll back it up and reverse it on you.
This track comes to us as the third official K. Forest single release since the Eyes Of Taiga album dropped six months ago. Two months ago, K. Forest released “Low Low” and “On Deck” as a double release, and now he’s back at it again. Check it out below.
