Billie Eilish - Happier Than Ever

Billie Eilish delivered more mature and introspective themes on Happier Than Ever, her second studio album following WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP WHERE DO WE GO?The young star reflects on her life after the release of her debut record in 2019, stating in a Rolling Stone interview, “I don’t know how to explain this, but all the songs on the album feel like a specific time, because they feel like when I wrote them and made them. It’s so funny that to the rest of the world it’s going to feel like a certain moment for them, and it’s going to be so different than mine. That’s such a weird, weird thing to wrap my head around. And I will f*cking love it. I love it. That’s the reason you do this. It’s for that.”

Skepta - All In

Skepta teamed up with J Balvin, Kid Cudi and Teezee on All In, a five-track EP largely produced by the English artist himself alongside JAE5, Ragz Originale and Josh Faulkner. The tracks were created before lockdown, Skepta revealed in a statement, but waited for the right moment to release them. With live shows slowly resuming, however, it seemed like it was time. “This music isn’t for people to download and discuss. It’s music to feel when I perform it live, music for people to celebrate with their friends,” he said.
