Nothing short of wildly entertaining, Cardi B overcomes old guard hip-hop scepticism by delivering a flawed but funny debut album

Cardi B

Invasion of Privacy

★★★★☆

The success of Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow caused some consternation in hip-hop circles. Here was a track whose author blithely admitted was a facsimile of Kodak Black’s 2014 hit No Flockin. 998 more words

By the sounds of things, Young Fathers have tried to make their singular, experimental pop more straightforward on their third album. It hasn't worked, but it's fantastic listening nonetheless

Young Fathers

Cocoa Sugar

★★★★☆

“We’re game for trying anything,” said Young Fathers’ Graham “G” Hastings in an Observer interview last month. Stubbornly unclassifiable, the Edinburgh trio indeed have a habit of trying anything. 988 more words

Life in Trump's America seems to have prompted a career reassessment for Pharrell Williams: he's back with N.E.R.D and back on exhilarating form with their best album to date

N.E.R.D

No One Ever Really Dies

★★★★☆

Funny things can happen to recording artists when they approach middle age. There have been startling examples. Not long after he turned 40, David Bowie started Tin Machine, the curious hard rock band he later disowned. 1,063 more words
