Editors’ Notes At a mere minute and a half, “Vanilla”—this week’s headlining track on Northern Touch—shows that Rexdale MC Pilla B can get in, get the job done, and get out in no time flat. “Shout out Fivio Foreign for the flow,” Pilla tells Apple Music of his recent inspiration. “I was trying something new and turnt up for the city.” Produced by Burd & Keyz, the song rips by quickly but still manages to pack in a fair number of braggadocious threats—whether about stealing girlfriends or sending folks to the morgue. Hear it now and check back often as we track the dynamic figures at the vanguard of Canadian rap and R&B’s new golden era. We update this playlist with new music every week—if you like a track, add it to your library.
