For the first episode of Season 3, the boys share their thoughts on Alex From Glasto's debut single and the implications of having a respected platform for Black British music like GRM Daily premiering the track.
Sope and Nic reflect on their time at the 2019 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans and recount their experiences watching legendary acts like Mary J. Blige, New Edition and Missy Elliott in addition to newer acts like Lucky Daye and Normani.
In light of Mel B's comments that Jessie J is "overrated", the boys put their two pence on the sentiment that the UK allegedly failed Jessie J's career.
Arguably the biggest topic of the week, Eden leads a discussion on A$AP Rocky officially being charged with aggravated assault and the complicated issue as to whether black people should be rallying for him in light of his problematic views on police brutality and black women.
Rounding things off is the boys evaluating why Tyler, The Creator deserved to beat DJ Khaled to the number one spot on Billboard.
