Music discovery & rediscovery. Playlist ammunition.

7 years ago today, Drake released arguably his best album Take Care. It featured artists such as The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, Lil Wayne, Andre 3000, and Rihanna. Production for the album came from Drake and 40 who executive produced the record with also some placements by notable names such as frequent collaborator Boi-1da, T-Minus, and Just Blaze to name a few. Take Care went on to sell 631,000 copies in the first week and hit #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. At the 2013 Grammy’s he picked up his first award for Take Care being recognized as Best Rap Album. What is you favorite track? .

Bathe is a duo from Brooklyn, New York consisting of members Corey Smith-West and Devin Hobdy. The self proclaimed “Surf R&B” artists debut single explores concepts of toxic masculinity and it’s impact on black men. Although this is our first peek into their world, something tells me that they’ll be here to stay. Swipe to check out a snippet of their single “Sure Shot” @batheboys .

2 years ago today Frank Ocean released his third studio album Blond. It followed the release of his visual album Endless the day prior. Blond debuted at number one in the US selling 232k copies first week. Since then the album has gained platinum status and become somewhat of a cultural artifact. For more about the album tune into @dissectpodcast as Cole Cuchna breaks down every song on the project and gives valuable insight on Frank’s creative process. .
