Honorable mentions from mainstream music this week are 21 Savage’s I AM> I WAS and The-Dream’s three-sided Ménage à Trois. The-Dream’s album is centered around physical intimacy, while 21’s album is more personal in the aspect that the rappers speaks on experiences that inspired his growth in certain area in life, while choosing to remain true in other areas— necessarily so.Both albums are pretty diverse in sound, 21’s album being more so trap and The-Dream’s RnB.

Days ago, on the 19th, Travis Scott released the official video for his single "SICKO MODE" which features Drake. Like the song , the visual is full of effects. This is the second ASTROWORLD visual, the first being "STOP TRYING TO BE GOD".
On the 17th, Joyner Lucas released his new single "I Love". This year the rapper has released a few singles and collaborative work with artists like Eminem and Chris Brown.

On the 20th, upcoming rap artist, Pardison Fontaine released a song and video for his single "Backin' It Up" which features megastar Cardi B. Formally speaking, the song speaks on seeing things through and it's release could easily be a public relations clean-up for Cardi B and Nicki's public altercation earlier this month, or merely a coincidence. Whatever the case may be, its release serves as a win-win with the song being Mr. Fontaine's first mainstream hit since starting his career a little over 5 years ago.
 
On the 19th, the visual for 2 Chainz's "Bigger Than You" visual featuring Quavo and Drake went viral. The song will most likely appear on the rappers album in the works, Rap Or Go To The League(TBA). The visual pays homage to the rappers present day through the depiction of themselves in grade school.
