TOP 10 ALBUMS OF 2018

2018 has been another stellar year for music; we’ve had the slew of releases from G.O.O.D. Music that bought us ‘Kids See Ghosts’, ‘Ye’ and ‘DAYTONA’, as well as big releases from some of our favourite Brits like Wiley, Young Fathers and Novelist. It’s also been a year tinged by sadness as we say an…

MAC MILLER – SWIMMING

Mac Miller releases a fifth studio album in ‘Swimming’, his first since – and in many ways a counterpoint to – 2016’s ‘The Divine Feminine’.  Mac’s public break-up with singer  Ariana Grande is evidently a source of inspiration, but happily it’s self-love, healing, and psychological growth Mac dwells on, rather than wallowing in self-pity.  “Tell them they…

MAC MILLER – STAY [VIDEO]

Fresh off the back of’The Divine Feminine‘, Mac Miller returns to the project with a video for smooth album cut ‘Stay’.  It has to be said, this video would’t actually look out of place among the countless low budget UK Hip Hop video submissions we receive here at Province.  Here’s hoping he’s not pre-empting a curve.…

MAC MILLER – THE DIVINE FEMININE

Mac Miller’s ‘The Divine Feminine’ is the Pittsburgh MC’s fourth studio album.  For us, 2013’s ‘Watching Movies With The Sound Off‘ set a standard that last year’s ‘GO:OD AM‘ just couldn’t match.  The new album shoots for a completely different sound; it’s far mellower, with lush, natural-sounding instrumentation making for an altogether more “vibey” [shudders] release.…

MAC MILLER – MY FAVOURITE PART [FT. ARIANA GRANDE]

Mac Miller enlists the help of girlfriend Ariana Grande on a new track from his upcoming album ‘The Divine Feminine’ [September 16].  ‘My Favourite Part’ follows ‘Dang!‘ and ‘We‘ as the album’s third single, and while the cover art and feature might suggest something fairly saccharine, the collaboration has a surprisingly soulful, authentic feel.  Stream below via YouTube,…

MAC MILLER – WE

The second single to come from Mac Miller’s upcoming album ‘The Divine Feminine’ is ‘We’, a smooth cut featuring CeeLo Green.  Similarly to ‘Dang‘, it’s aimed directly at the mainstream which, when taken in conjunction with the fact that Ariana Grande will also feature on the album, hints at its tone.  Stream below via YouTube,…

MAC MILLER – DANG [VIDEO]

Having only just dropped the first single from upcoming album ‘The Divine Feminine’, Mac Miller wastes no time in accompanying ‘Dang‘ with a visual. Fans of Mac’s more mainstream output will delight in the uncomplicated, girl-chasing Anderson .Paak narrative which ensues, while fans of his more understated instrumentals may feel a slight disconnect.  Regardless, ‘The Divine…
