‘Him & I’ by G-Eazy & Halsey

According to Halsey, this song is inspired by the romantic relationship of the notorious criminal duo Bonnie & Clyde. G-Eazy also confirmed this by saying that he and Halsey are like them, that they are “crazy in love, like, we would kill for each other, we would die for each other kind of thing."
‘Homemade Dynamite (Remix)’ by Lorde ft. Khalid, Post Malone & SZA

‘Finesse (Remix)’ by Bruno Mars ft. Cardi B
- The opening drum pattern to this song takes direct inspiration from the intro to Bell Biv Devoe’s 1990 new jack swing classic “Poison.”
- If you are wondering what the word “finesse” means, it is a noun that describes the unique ability of an individual to move in a smooth manner.”
GOSSIP – CHARLI XCX
Yesterday, Charli XCX was included in a list of the “7 bands we took for granted in 2017”, an article published by Phoenix New Times.

The Times said that her album Pop 2, which includes the song ‘Babygirl’, “sounds like pop music beamed in from the future”.
