The teen group Chloe X Halle from Grown-ish has their first studio release, "The kids are alright." We discuss the easy going production and the great harmonization between the young ladies.  Its surprising that these young ladies had their hands on so much of this album.  From writing, producing and singing all through this release.  It sounded like much more seasoned artists. The ladies created a very enjoyable album that we didn't expect.

Part two of our music review is our Canadian addition, Tory Lanez.  Which as a new listener to his complete album I had a different outlook about this guy.  The R&B/ rap artist we add our view and perspective of a release that is totally reminicent of his fellowcanadian counterparts.  This is a something Tory should be proud of.

This week we drop in on two artist we felt was worthy of being highlighted with their new releases. Tory Lanez and xxxtentacion.   The release I personally was looking forward to is the XXXtentacion new release. With our previous review of his "Debut release 17" we didn't know what we were going to get especially after the SYRE release by Jaden Smith. And by the way, he's number 1 on the billboard chart.    Then we get into the Tory Larenz.
