“Nights Like This” – Kehlani ft. Ty Dolla $ign

We like this. It’s Kehlani doing what Kehlani does: serving us melodies, harmonies, and a relatable subject matter. Ty Dolla $ign is always a welcome addition.

Maybe there’s a brilliant… Continue Reading →

“Damn Good Liar” – Emily Burns

Issabop writer 1: “OMG I love the Emily Burns song.” Issabop writer 2: “Emily Burns is crap. It’s dumb and so simple and safe and we’ve literally heard everything in it somewhere before, in bad safe boring pop songs… that were also flops.” Let us know what you think of this song in the comments!… Continue Reading →
