Monthly Music Mix: March Favorites

By Megan Barbera

Spring is almost here, and the music scene certainly isn’t slowing down. In March we saw fresh singles, albums and EPs.  As the weather gets warmer, the tracks are getting hotter; here are my favorites from the month of March.

My Life: Tame Impala ft. ZHU

Tame Impala released their first song of 2018, “My Life” featuring ZHU. This track stays true to the group’s classic EDM feel, and hopefully it foreshadows upcoming projects this year.

Diplo: California

Diplo brings major summer vibes with his newest EP, “California,” featuring artists like DRAM, Goldlink, Trippie Redd and more. The songs on the EP aren’t all as catchy as typical Diplo songs, as tracks like “Wish” featuring Trippie Redd and “Colorblind” featuring Lil Xan offer a more emotional sound.

Nevertheless, the Diplo’s signature sound shines through every track, and “Get it Right- Remix” with Goldlink and MØ brings it home with a happier feel.

The World is Yours: Rich the Kid

Rich the Kid’s debut album is making waves within the rap community — for good reasons. Rap fans will enjoy features from Future, Lil Wayne and Offset, but there is still a pop-inspired side to the album with tracks like “Too Gone” featuring Khalid.

OKRA: Tyler the Creator

Tyler the Creator continues to develop his distinctive sound with the release of new track “OKRA” on March 30. I can’t wait to see what is coming next from Tyler!
