Blxst, "I Need Your Love" f/Ty Dolla $ign
R&B phenom Blxst's wildly anticipated debut full-length release, I'll Always Come Find You (Red Bull Records/EVGLE), brings back the concept album. The 20-track set, exec-produced by Sounwave, is a four-part narrative composed of songs, skits and vignettes; in addition to Ty, it boasts such esteemed guests as Snoop Dogg, E-40, Anderson .Paak, Feid and Becky G. The overarching tale follows young Birdie, who inherits a limo from his chauffeur father; his adventures on (and off) the road make up the album's saga. Hop in and let's go.
