Friday Heat Check: Maria Isabel, Van Buren Records, JAWNY, & More


Love Song by Maria Isabel

Maria Isabel has been in my rotation since the release of her last EP, Stuck in the Sky. To say the least, I was waiting for new music from Maria and “Love Song” is the answer I was looking for. This is an intimate track where she uses her songwriting abilities to describe the feeling of love poetically! This is already one of my favorite records by her! 

Medic by Van Buren Records

Van Buren Records is back and ready to take over. “Medic” off their new project Bad For Press is easily one of my favorite songs from the project! The record starts with an intoxicating verse from SAINT LYOR that creates momentum from the jump. Then the rest of the roster comes to push the narrative forward; Jiles and Meech also had some very expressive verses. 

Best Thing by JAWNY 

You’re going to love this record; if you don’t, you’re just no fun. JAWNY gives us a fun, upbeat single with “Best Thing”. The falsetto hook will be stuck in your head halfway through the track, and not to mention he gives a solid verse. Stepping away from singing and hitting us with a smooth rap verse, what can’t this guy do! I love this song!


IDK links up with OFFSET for an upbeat heater. Where both of these rappers talk about times, they shot before they were up. We get to see how success changed the way women perceived IDK and that circumstances do change. Check it out below!

Karma & Friends by Cautious Clay

Cautious Clay can never do wrong and especially on “Karma & Friends”. This is a smooth R&B record with over-the-top production. Clay‘s rich vocal tone is like a warm hug and complaints the record so well. Give this a try, and I will be surprised if you don’t like it!
