3 great songs to stream this week: Lil Nas X, Post Malone, Kygo

Newsday - 07-08


So many singles, so little time. Here are three songs to stream right away:. Will Lil Nas X’s new single “Panini” (Columbia) be the song to finally dethrone “Old Town Road” on the pop charts? It could be. The follow-up is a clever bit of pop-leaning hip-hop that clocks in under two minutes to maximize its streaming numbers and shows that Lil Nas X knows exactly what he’s doing. It’s more fun than the other hip-pop sure thing this week, Post Malone’s angry “Goodbyes” (Republic) with Young Thug, which is heavy on the processed vocals and the straightforward lyrics, “I want you out of my head, I want you out of my bedroom tonight.”
