DIFFERENT KITCHEN’S FAVORITE SONGS OF 2017

Let’s face it, in 2017 it was Cardi‘s world (salute, Belcalis), we were just living in it. I was late on it (thanks, C and Ice for the heads up) but I still ended up being the only Hype Machine blog on “Bodak Yellow”, a song that ended up being the biggest one of the year by a country mile. What does that say about the state of blogging in 2017??! I can’t call it except to say that’s what we do and have done for 15 years now here at The Kitchen: champion the music we think is fiya and deserves acclaim regardless of where it comes from and who releases it, indie, regional, major label, hard rock street or candy pop commercial, if we f-cks with it, we f-cks with it and want to tell the world how we feel. And while “Bodak Yellow” was the best song in our (and many others’) estimation, there were lots of other great songs. Our favorites are all listed below but the rest of the tracks we loved the most in 2017 that we couldn’t put on our Pazz and Jop ballot* are in the Spotify playlist embedded below. Here go….

THE BEST:
Cardi BBodak Yellow
Big ShaqMan’s Not Hot
