HNHH’S TIDAL WAVE Returns: Big Week For Denzel Curry & Skepta


It’s been a minute, but HNHH is back with another update of the Tidal Wave playlist. Should you be lacking, the basic premise is as follows: we amass a collection of our favorite recent bangers, and present it to you as accordingly. While our other ongoing series, the longstanding staple “Fire Emoji,” features a broader look at the hottest songs in the game, Tidal Wave centers around the taste of individuals. To be specific, our writing team – which is to say myself, Aron, two Alexes, Rose, Devin, Aida, and Chantilly – and sales team, herein represented by the trusted Paul. 

Given that the past week or so has yielded some of the years strongest albums, it’s no surprise to see a particularly stacked effort. Denzel Curry’s ZUU is well represented, with “CAROLMART” emerging as a clear favorite. Skepta’s Ignorance Is Bliss also proved to be a strong effort from the London Legend, winning the hearts of the “old head energy” trifecta. There seemed to be a certain universality about Thugger, Cole, and Travis’ “The London,” perhaps triggered by the unlikely alliance forged between our very eyes. Tyler, The Creator‘s IGOR appeared to speak deeply to Chantilly, while Aida held it down with support for Megan Thee Stallion and some international vibes from Aya Nakamura.

Be sure to check out this week’s TIDAL WAVE, and subscribe to stay in touch with what we’re feeling at the time.
