By Alexis Arambula October 11, 2019
Happy Friday! This week we’re back with a brand new hip-hop drop from a reunited trio, a new album from BABYMETAL and much more. As always, theres a genre that’ll cater to anyone. Trust us, these artists definitely brought the heat this week.
Curren$y, Trademark Da Skydriver, Young Roddy -Plan of Attack (Babygrande Records Inc)
This New Orleans hip-hop trio releases their long awaited full-length album, Plan of Attack courtesy of Babygrande Records Inc. Fans across the globe have been eager to listen to this collaboration from the three core members of Jet Life. It’s an exciting time for the fans since the trio’s previous union years ago was brief and ultimately each member pursued solo projects. Now, close to 5 years later, they’re back and better than ever with their new album and title track, “Plan of Attack.” Curren$y tells Hotnewhiphop, “It’s long overdue yet it’s right on time, absence makes the heart grow fonder.”
Not only do fans get an album, but they can also expect an upcoming 20-city nationwide tour with dates to be announced soon. Rejoice and listen to Plan of Attack here!
Fuerza Nueva – Fuerza Nueva (Musica Solar)
Ever wonder what a combination of punk-rock, poetry, minimalism and electronics would sound like? Fuerza Nueva, the project formulated by Los Planetas and Niño de Elche, are exactly what you’ve been looking for. The self-titled album Fuerza Nueva from the Musica Solar group combines Los Planetas, a legendary indie rock band from Spain, and flamenco singer, Niño de Elche. They’ve joined forces to create a music landscape that that blending everything from indie to flamenco, to pop and even art and film. In regards to the album described as ‘more poetic than political’ album, the group told Jnsp, it’s “possibly the most experimental album we have ever made.”
Fuerza Nueva is set to perform a sold out concert in Madrid on October 16th with all members of Los Planetas and Niño De Elche. Don’t let FOMO get the best of you, you can still stream their album all day long!
BABYMETAL – Metal Galaxy (Cooking Vinyl)
Japanese kawaii metal band, BABYMETAL release their album Metal Galaxy (Cooking Vinyl). Suzuka Nakamoto (Sumetal), Moa Kikuchi (Moametal), and former member, Yui Mizuno (Yuimetal) were inspired by the “Fox God” which they often represent in their performances, photos, and this new album. BABYMETAL really began to kick off back in 2014, touring with Guns N’ Roses and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their hit song, “Gimme Chocolate!!” received a lot of attention and drew a large fanbase from all around the world. This album includes some songs that have an electronic vibe along with their original, classic BABYMETAL metal sound.
The group is currently headlining their very first U.S. tour, making stops at iconic venues, like The Forum in Inglewood, CA. This show is bound to be one for the books. Get tickets here!
