New Music Monday: Juicy J, AC/DC, Jhené Aiko and more

"New Music Mondays" is a column that highlights recently dropped music from prominent artists.

Although there's nothing that extremely stands-out, this week’s New Music Monday features a handful of releases from popular artists, ranging from Juicy J to AC/DC. 

To hear more from previous New Music Mondays and more of this week’s feature releases, check out the Kansan’s New Music Monday playlist on Spotify.

“Load it up” by Juicy J featuring NLE Choppa

The Three-6 Mafia rapper is back with a new single. Revisiting his signature, southern hip-hop sound, “Load it up” is reminiscent of the “I’m So High” and some of the trio’s other hits.

Despite a catchy instrumental and some solid lyricism from Juicy J, NLE Choppa’s presence waters down the song instead of being an addition. 

“Dinner Party” by Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper, 9th Wonder and Kamasi Washington

This Jazz infused R&B album successfully fuses musical legends with some up-and-coming artists.

With production and basslines from Terrace Martin and Kamasi Washington, rapper Phoelix is able to capitalize on his soothing vocals to create a successful run of songs.

Joining Phoelix on the final track, Snoop Dogg’s presence on “LUV U” brings out the best in this medley of artists.

“Vote” by Jhené Aiko

This call to action from Jhené Aiko can be found on a recent episode of the hit sitcom, “Blackish.” That said, the track is pretty forgettable, despite Aiko’s angelic voice.

Nevertheless, listeners should take her advice and make sure to vote this November.

"Shot in the Dark" by AC/DC

The historic rock band released a new single this weekend, and it did not disappoint.

With similar riffs to what you’d hear on “Highway to Hell” or “You Shook Me All Night Long,” the group stuck to what they’re known for. “Shot in the Dark” is definitely a welcome addition to AC/DC’s arsenal.
