  • Charts Don’t Lie: August 10
    This week we see one new entry below, belonging to October's Very Own's PARTYNEXTDOOR. The r'n'b singer is relatively new, having released his first official mixtape PARTYNEXTDOOR just last summer. Nonetheless, he's already developed quite the loyal following, undoubtedly due (in part) to his affiliation with Drizzy. The Toronto singer has been able to move a solid 15k, almost 16k, since his...

Either way, sports and...

I also could never put Aaliyah’s entire legacy and everything she’s worth to my generation into a nice, neat, compartmented box. But beyond the fact that they both have consistently made incredible music; there are so many various ways that...
