Staff Picks: Top Songs of the Month (March 2018)

March was undoubtedly the busiest month for new music so far in 2018. From XXXTentacion’s chart-topping album ? to Rich The Kid’s highly-anticipated debut project The World Is Yours, it was pretty well close to impossible to keep up. Luckily, the LL writing team has helped put together another Top Songs list that features tracks that may have gone under the radar throughout the past 31 days. Check them out below and here’s hoping April brings much of the same heat!

_ – Get Up With Me

One of the undisputed highlights from the beginning of this month was latest effort in Get Up With Me. Featuring production from BLKYTH, the vicious instrumental and high-octane lyricism was yet another hype setting record for his forthcoming Chest Pains album in which assured in the description that its release is ‘soon.’ Let’s hope that day isn’t too far away, but for now, don’t slip-up on one of his most impressive tracks to date.


Bernard Jabs – End Goal

Georgia rapper Bernard Jabs is somewhat of a newcomer on our pages, and he very well could have been on a number of these Top Songs lists in the past. Enter his latest joint End GoalAs soon as the SIDEPCE instrumental set the tone for Bernard’s in-your-delivery on counting hunnit’s and stealing your girl, it was all over from that point on. Best believe you’ll see a lot more of Jabs on our platform moving forward, but first, get familiar with End Goal at the link below.


Ron$oCold Ft. Comethazine – Big Bank

Ron$oCold & Comethazine’s first collab in Big Bank was an instant addition to any respectable playlist, and hopefully a sign of things to come. The pair of recent Alamo Records signees took turns murdering the bouncy production from Pi’erre Bourne who is a regular credit found in $oCold’s musical catalog (check out Designer Shit & dothamost!)If you’re fairly new to Comethazine like myself, it probably didn’t take you too long to realize that the Illinois-based artist is destined to keep adding to his already-massive splash, but I’ll let the music do the talk. Let loose this impressive offering from two of Alamo’s finest up-and-comers.


16yrdold Ft. DSavage & Chxpo – Goin Brazy

16yrold has quickly proved to be a sought-after producer out of Ohio, and this month he shared a must-listen track with DSavage & Chxpo titled Goin Brazy. With additional production from Eerie, the colorful production was a change of pace for the dynamic duo of Savage & Chxpo who traded off with laid-back verses on getting ‘guala’ and simply going crazy in the process. DSavage also came through with a pair of loosies in What You Want & Lately a few days ago, so after pressing play on this can’t miss record, go find those on his SoundCloud right here.


Stan Sono Ft. Ricky P – Westside 

If you haven’t been put on Chicago lyricist Stan Sono just yet, be prepared to have another artist to keep on your radar. This month, he connected with Ricky P for a smooth offering in Westside following up his previous record Change My Mind that easily could have made the cut on the Top Songs list from February. Produced by Sono himself, the mesmerizing keys were the foundation for a pleasant, on-the-beach vibe that demands a repeat immediately after the first listen. Let’s not forget to give credit to Ricky P as well, whose dripping autotune verse was the last piece of the puzzle for this catchy tune that instantly ran up numbers on SoundCloud. To put in simpler terms, do not sleep on Stan Sono & his counterpart.


Yung Bans Ft. Lil Xan – Yung Xan 

It could be argued that Yung Bans fourth chapter in his self-titled EP series could have made this list in its entirety. Including the pre-project single with Yachty in Different Colors, the sparkling 6-track effort also featured a Bans/ Lil Xan connection titled Yung Xan that instantly caught my attention after the first listen. With BrentRambo aka Brent Noir behind the keys, both Bans & Xan were in their bag with their charismatic energy & smooth-sounding lyricism that has undoubtedly helped push them to star status in such a short amount of time. With Yung Bans being a regular on our pages, this probably doesn’t need too much gassing up. Check this one out immediately and, if you know what’s best for you, stream Yung Bans Vol.4 here.


Gnar Ft. Night Lovell & Joji – FeelTheRage 

Arguably the most unexpected song this past month hit our pages a matter of days ago, that could also make its case for the hottest song on this month’s list. Taking a new persona as “Gnar,” the bubbling artist tapped Ottawa-based rapper Night Lovell and viral sensation-turned-R&B star Joji for an insane collab titled FeelTheRage. As soon as the sinister acoustic guitar opens-up the track, the rage is certainly felt right away as Gnar comes in with his demonizing vocals that will stay stuck in your head for days on end. Both Lovell & Joji followed-up with impressive verses, respectably; but it was simply impossible to get over Gnar’s bone-chilling hook. Prepare to be haunted by this one streaming below.


Young Lungs – Drunk Dial 

Hailing from Waterloo, Ontario, Young Lungs unloaded his latest work with Cian P titled Drunk Dial, and much like the rest of this list, you simply can’t sleep. Taking a trip into his feelings, the promising 20-year-old artist blessed the drippy Cian P-production with his mellow bars on late-night thoughts and drunk dialing his women. After hearing his musical talents for the first time, you’ll instantly feel compelled to go back and scroll through his past releases as well including WRAITH with Pollari & Net Nobody, Paranoia with Lancey Foux and even the LocateEmilio and Johnny Drama-assisted joint titled Last Winter can be found on his latest full-length project This Time Last Winter. Take my word for it and get familiar with Young Lungs before it’s too late!
