Offset, Gunna, YoungBoy Never Broke Again and More: Bangers This Week
Another week comes to a close. With that said, plenty of songs dropped this week and XXL put them in a nice little package. Enjoy this week's music roundup.
The mystery surrounding Offset's solo album is almost over, with it's official release scheduled for next Friday (Feb. 22). The first single is "Red Room," an intensely personal exploration of 'Set's life. In it, he talks about his scary car crash, his children, familial strife and more. The track is intense and refreshing, making good on Offset's insistence that his solo music would be more relatable.
Gunna is an artist who could fairly be described as the people's champ, both amongst fans and his peers. Drip Or Drown II is just a week away, but his second single "Speed It Up" is here right now. The song features Gunna showing off the style that got him to this spot in the first place; stop and go flows that fit perfectly on whatever beat he touches. "Speed It Up" is compact, as Gunna uses less bars than usual, still getting his point across.
Part of YoungBoy Never Broke Again's appeal is his honesty. His new song "Gangsta Fever" features the rapper talking about his relationship issues, struggling with self-confidence and seeking revenge. A flurry of emotions fit into a sub-three minute package, with a sung hook that's hard to forget. He got into some trouble this week and dropped this song, turning his focus back to music.
