Check out Mac Miller’s new album, The Divine Feminine, with features from artists like Ariana Grande and Ty Dolla $ign, and find out why it’s #MusicToObsessOver!
Hey guys! I’m back with another installment of Music To Obsess Over, and truly this album is worthy of obsessing over. Every time I try to listen to something else I somehow get pulled back in to Mac Miller’s new album “The Devine Feminine“, which debuted at number 2 on the Billboard Top 100. After being gone for what seemed like a long time, or at least gone from the mainstream scene, I was so excited to hear that he dropped a new album. I was certainly not disappointed.
What’s funny is, I was just questioning where the hell Mac Miller had fallen off the face of the Earth to. It seemed he was everywhere a few years ago and then disappeared, and sure enough he came back just in time to drop this fire album and melt hearts everywhere with his relationship with Ariana Grande. Which, like, finally! I’ve shipped them since they did The Way together. The first single off The Divine Feminine is called My Favorite Part, and of course features Ariana herself. The song is adorable, and her voice sounds really great with his. You can listen to the official audio below.
This is not a party album. Every track is slowed down and chilled out, and they all work perfectly together. The songs are sprinkled with features from artists like Cee Lo Green, Anderson .Paak, and Ty Dolla $ign. One of the stand outs, Planet God Damn has vocals from Njomza, and the song God Is Fair, Sexy Nasty is a beautiful track that ends with a 3-minute monologue from Mac’s own Grandmother about her relationship with his Grandfather. I remember feeling completely moved listening to her the first time, and thinking about my own Grandparents relationship (which, shout out, they’ll be married 70 years in just over a month!)
But Stay is by far my favorite track on the entire album. The lyrics are clever, the vibe is great, and the beat is great. This is bob your head and sing along music, and that’s the best kind in my opinion. Take a listen to the song below, and let us know what you think!
This was a very surprising album. The entire piece is about love, Cinderella has Mac singing over just a piano, and while it might not be all about Ariana it’s hard to not imagine that being the case. It’s very vulnerable and beautiful, and I’m super feeling it.
