11 Songs, 33 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

East London MC Jay Prince perfects a smooth, sweltering vibe on the aptly named Late Summers, one that feels miles removed from the chipped-brick-and-concrete grays and hammering pulse of the grime scene. His lithe, genial, and melodic flow (not to mention the big-brotherly positivity of songs like "I Believe in You") owes a little something to Chance the Rapper, with whom he toured. The drowsy head-knock of "Anthem" and "Vice" feel equally suited for convertible cruises and pensive bedroom window-gazing: Jay Prince’s music is expansive, and emotionally generous enough to fit into your life however you need.
