7 Songs, 33 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Beach House takes all the darkest celebrations of trap rap—drugs, guns, sex—and filters them through the vulnerable croon of Ty Dolla $ign. The results are fantastic because of that juxtaposition. Even when Ty is exploring something sinister, his tone makes it impossible not to be drawn in. Produced by Ty’s constant partner DJ Mustard, “Paranoid” and “Or Nah” are no-brainers; with just the right mix of simplicity and eccentricity, these songs will still get play in 50 years. It's the slow, slippery “Work,” though, that is the album’s sleeper gem.
