If you’re looking for a great selection of the freshest up-and-coming artists, look no further than the Monday To Monday playlist, curated by Mike Boyd Jr and Gary Vaynerchuk. Updated weekly, they include a culmination of hip-hop, pop, Latin, and the most memorable songs. This week’s curation features Fresco Trey, Millie Go Lightly, Satomaa, and more. Be sure to tune in below!

One song that stands out right away is Millie Go Lightly’s new release with “2 Girls, 1 Saloon.” Just coming off her last single release a few weeks ago, the British Barbie comes back with this fun, uptempo track. While the song has a short run time under one minute and thirty seconds, it has high replay value thanks to its catchy bars and mixture of unique elements. 

The song opens with a fast guitar sample on the high-end of the frequency. Then, Millie quickly hops on, delivering quick bars, something impressive as she is known for her singing abilities. Then on the chorus, Millie provides a unique, hybrid style, as she is delivering in a culmination of both rapping and singing. She delivers her ad-libs in singing to make it all the more impressive, although she may be rapping. Furthermore, even on her vibrato on rapping, she closes it with intoning components of her singing range. If you haven’t listened to it yet, be sure to check it out below!
