These Are Our Not-So-Favorite May Tracks

As we know, Music Daily is all about showing great music from worldwide-known artists up to amazing breakout artists the world needs to know about.

Unfortunately, there is also music that we didn’t fall in love with, so today we’re presenting you our new website segment: Scraps. What are scraps exactly? The songs we thought were not too great but from artists that have other songs worth listening to. Here is our list for the month of May.

May Scraps: Max Leone “Untitled”

The acoustic-driven ‘Untitled’ is the latest in a string of singles from the pop artist. The song is part of Leone’s forthcoming debut EP Malleable.

In a press release, Leone spoke of the background to the cathartic offering. “Writing ‘untitled’ felt like unloading all these little weights I had been carrying around with me. When a song feels like a relief, that’s a pretty good indicator it’s something special.”

Afrojack & David Guetta “Hero”

‘Hero’ is produced by Valerie Bush, Vertel Scott, and Jared Shelton. It’s directed by Tomas Whitmore.

Baby Keem & Travis Scott “Durag Activity”

“Durag Activity” is Baby Keem’s third single from his debut album “The Melodic Blue,” following “Hooligan” and ” No Sense.” Unlike his previous releases, however, the new song features a guest verse from Travis Scott — this the first time Baby Keem has ever collaborated with a fellow rapper.

The Black Keys “Going Down South”

The Band recently played this cover of the classic R.L Burnside tune on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday night. The Late Show posted the band’s performance of “Going Down South” on their YouTube channel.

Jake Bugg “Lost”

“The song is inspired by everyone who felt lost and parted from loved ones during the pandemic.” Bugg explained the intention behind ‘Lost’. “The sun’s coming out, summer is on the way and this is the tune for it.”

Marc E. Bassy “Trouble”

“Trouble” is the latest track to come from Bassy. In late April, he broke his music silence with a pair of songs: “Atmosphere” and “Zone.” Both tracks marked his first release since “Cold” from December 2020.

Sam Feldt & Sam Fischer “Pick Me Up”

Sam Fischer shared to Rav Jungle, “I’m stoked to be joining forces with Sam Feldt for ‘Pick Me Up’. He says ‘two Sams are better than one and I couldn’t agree more. Sam’s made people dance and brought joy to so many summers for years now, while I’ve been more in the business of making tears with my music. I’m excited to jump on his train, especially as life begins to start up again because who doesn’t need a Pick Me Up right now!”

Let us know in the comments if you agree or disagree with this list, or if you have a favorite song by any of these artists. We’ll be on the lookout for their next projects!
