Month in Review – June 2018 (English Music)
OnRecord Staff · July 05, 2018 · 1 Minute Read
As summer became monsoon, the musical seasons began to change, too. Here are the songs, artists, and albums that rocked the English charts.
Maroon 5’s remix video for “Girls Like You,” featuring hip-hop superstar Cardi B, made waves across the Internet for its all-star female cast. The video’s success also translated to a huge boost in plays on Saavn. That’s no surprise — what’s not to love about the positive message, Adam Levine’s beautiful, sincere vocals, and Cardi B’s typically powerful verse?
The collaborative album between superstars Beyoncé and Jay-Z came out of nowhere to delight listeners for its maturity, honesty, and incredible songwriting. It’s their first album as partners, and comes as the third act to the couple’s ongoing love story. The entire world took notice as the saga began with Beyonce’s Lemonade, in 2016. Jay-Z’s apologetic 4:44 followed last year, and now EVERYTHING IS LOVE completes the trilogy. Props to Beyoncé and Jay-Z for expressing their troubles and triumphs through their art — and hopefully giving all of us the freedom we need to confront our own transgressions and celebrate our successes.
