The Common Tones Flawlessly Mix Rap & Soul To Create This Feel Good Friday Mashup
A laid back groove with silky harmonies on top of some chill but colorful vocalists...this is exactly the type of music that Fridays call for.
If you're not a fan of gospel rap or psychedelic soul music, The Common Tones of Boston College may have just enough swagger to convert you. In their mashup of Chance The Rapper's "Same Drugs" and Childish Gambino's "Redbone" the group creates a chill atmosphere that's inviting, soulful, warm and simply amazing.
For those who may be turned off by the title alone, "Same Drugs" is a song that focuses on coming of age and no longer being into those things ones younger self might have had an affinity for, with "Redbone" being about love. The Common Tones' arrangement makes it all feel light-hearted but it never loses the listener's interest.
Enjoy this Feel Good Friday track that's sure to lift your spirits.
