A$AP ROcky feat. 2 CHainz & Drake
”F—in’ Problems”
”I have to listen to the clean version if my daughter or my mom is with me in the car, but I just love that beat so much!”

Rihanna
”Diamonds”
”It’s such a smash. When I wrote ‘Unpretty,’ I knew that I had that perfect single, and this is that one for [”songwriter”] Sia. It’s such a dope song. Songs like ‘Diamonds’ will last — you’ll hear it in elevators and while you’re on hold. That’s what ‘Waterfalls’ was like. Sometimes I go into IKEA and I’m still that kid who’s like, ‘They’re playing my song!”’

Jill Scott
”Crown Royal”
”I’m into lyrical content, because I think there’s less of a focus on that these days. It’s not even about a deep lyric — sometimes it’s just about getting a feeling. I don’t drink, but the metaphors Jill Scott uses in this are just so dope.”

Kendrick Lamar
”Swimming Pools (Drank)”
”Like I said, I don’t even drink, but this is just good music. His conscience starts talking to him in this song — I love that.”

Prince
”The Ballad of Dorothy Parker”
”A lot of people don’t know it, but it’s such a great arrangement. The melody is so great, and the way he talks through it is just so slick — it’s like a sexy way of pimping.”
