City Girls & Cardi B “Twerk”
Miami-based duo City Girls has been featured on StripJoints before with “Take Yo Man.” The group is back at it as we flip the calendar with “Twerk”. What’s more, City Girls has brought in the talents of one Cardi B, who helped “Twerk” break into the Billboard Hot 100 in November 2018. “Twerk” starts fast and furious with the bass dropped low, making it the ideal opening for a club banger. Sandwiched in between J.T. and Yung Miami, Cardi B makes her presence felt while the two Miami rappers more than carry their weight lyrically for this fun-charged rap tune.
Quavo “Workin Me”
As one of the members of Migos, Quavo is no stranger to musical success. It’s no surprise to see him (and the other members of the group) branch out. For Quavo, that has taken the form of “Workin Me”, a single off his debut album “Quavo Huncho”. In “Workin Me”, Quavo never overexerts himself and instead lets the rap come out naturally. The end result is a track that Migos fans should enjoy and Quavo fans will devour. In other words, this one merits a lot of airplay thanks to its laidback vibe coupled with Quavo’s polished skillset.
Lil Peep “Racks on Racks”
Lil Pump is a Miami-based rapper, who has already rubbed elbows with the likes of Kanye and Hollywood (he’ll be featured on the soundtrack for Deadpool 2). Having appeared on the mainstream consciousness with his song “Gucci Gang,” Lil Pump dropped “Racks on Racks” in anticipation of his album “Harvard Dropout” due out in late February. With “Racks on Racks” Lil Pump is dishing out the soulful flavor that has endeared him to millions already. Spitting quickly, Lil Pump is clearly a showman like his collab partner, Kanye (though not on the same level, yet).
