Ohio native LuvAbstract first delighted listeners this past Spring with ‘Risk’, a track that emanated a full-blown YOLO mentality. His latest single ‘Driveway’ tells the personal tale of a goodbye that perhaps was a little too premature; something which everyone can indeed relate to. It’s an uplifting song that communicates the innocence of such a powerful moment.

Both ‘Risk’ and ‘Driveway’ comes off LuvAbstract’s forthcoming EP, which is due out next month. Before then, we asked him to share some of his current favorite tracks. Listen in below.

Jon Bellion – Luxury

“This was the first song I heard from Jon a few years ago. The emotion of the music and the lyrics resonated with me.”

Jessie Reyez – Kiddo

“This song talks about certain parts of the industry that need to be addressed. As long as we keep quiet, things will never change for the better.”

Raf Riley – Summer

“The way I took this song is, ‘Don’t wait for the perfect time. Just go for it.’ Whatever your ‘it’ is, stop waiting for the perfect storm to come. Because it won’t. Just go for it!”

LuvAbstract – Lost Girls

“I’ve been making music for years now. This was the first song that got international attention. This was the first time I told a real story and opened up. I am forever grateful to this song.”

Amine – Spice Girl

“I love the playful yet intricate lyrics and the effortless yet powerful vocals. Amine truly understands how to make a song.”

Kyle – Don’t Wanna Fall In Love

“I love love songs and break up songs. Kyle makes the perfect breakup song while using a Jane Child sample.”

Halsey – Control

“The lyrics of the hook are powerful and motivating. ‘I’m bigger than my body…. I’m meaner than my demons…Who is in control’ However the music behind the lyrics suggests a sad tone to those lyrics. So she basically is trying to convince herself that she is in control. I love the layers of meaning in this song.”

Melanie Martinez – Dollhouse

“Melanie is a conceptual artist. The message behind this song is beautiful. And the way she personified the message was amazing.”

Kehlani – Down For You (feat. BJ the Chicago Kid)

“I absolutely love duets and Kehlani and BJ perfectly executed this one.”

6lack – That Far

“I miss the good ol’ days where hip-hop artist made music when they were feuding. This song is clearly a diss song to someone. Rather than going to social media and yelling, he stuck to his true guns, Music. Not only is it honorable to leave it in the music, but if you take out the concept of the beef, this is still a great song.”
