Hey, hey, hey. No, it's not Fat Albert, but it is another article pertaining to some noteworthy artists/bands worth listening to this week.

This article looks to uncover the soothing sounds of a few underrated (and not so underrated) musicians through good old-fashioned literature. So, grab a cold beverage with some popcorn on the side, and let's get started!

Lil Baby - Merch Madness

Sometimes, he makes records for partying to; on other occasions, Lil Baby has shown his skill of taking a more continuous rap approach. His hit record The Bigger Picture is a shining example of this very fact. More recently, his recent single Merch Madness further illustrates the point. 

The song touches on being an inspiration for the next-gen and those that follow. Moreover, it serves as a great message for not forgetting where you came from and being willing to give back to the community that helped make you.

Snoh Aalegra - Find Someone Like You

Well, we're far off from Valentine's Day, but this one is bound to make you feel it's here regardless of the season. Snoh Aalegra has the kind of voice that makes you want to grab your significant other, cuddle up to them ever so slightly, and fade away into a deep, uncontrollably warm spiral of bliss.

Though she's made a multitude of tear jerking compositions in her day, Find Someone Like You stands out as one her best tracks yet. It's best suited for a casual date night just as much as it'd be for your wedding day.

Billie Eilish - What Was I Made For?

She might be just 21 years of age, but it truly is astonishing to think about the impact that Billie Eilish has made in the music industry in such a short time frame. If you haven't checked out one of her latest records titled, What Was I Made For? off the Barbie movie soundtrack; it's strongly advised that you do so.

The song starts with Eilish singing ever so angelically with nothing but the sound of a piano accompanying her vocals. Eventually, the piano solo transitions into a more fleshed-out melody as the song progresses.

All in all, it's a somber tune infused with a beautiful sound. Eilish relays a relatable message about the questioning of one's own purpose and identity through the introspective lens of a Barbie doll.
