The Best Songs of 2012 (Part 2)

Darq E Freaker – “Blueberry (Pills & Cocaine)” F. Danny Brown

This year’s MVP teams up with grime producer Darq E Freaker to create auditory party drugs.

Kool AD & Bill Ding – “Hypersensitive Jester”

Groovy guitar lines wrap themselves around Kool A.D. and Bill Ding’s gut-busting punchlines and braggadocio.

Jessie Ware – “Wildest Moments”

Arena-filling vocals from U.K. songbird Jessie Ware drift over percussive production.

Jeremih – “Fuck U All The Time” F. Natasha Mosley

The “Birthday Sex” dude gets an artsy R&B makeover and mellows out with guest vocalist Natasha Mosley.

Dirty Projectors – “Gun Has No Trigger”

David Longstreth curves his vocals around a chilling female chorus and minimalist percussion.

Toro Y Moi – “So Many Details”

Toro y Moi dives headfirst into pop music on the lead single off his upcoming third album.

Jay Ant & Iamsu “On My Mind” F. Mike-Dash-E

Bay Area duo Jay Ant + Iamsu! blend hyphy and soul-sampling boom-bap with killer results.

Blu – “Rap Dope”

Storytelling Blu is great and all, but when did snaps, he snaps. Like on this dreamy, Bombay-produced banger.

Robert Glasper Experiment – “Afro Blue” F. Erykah Badu

Mongo Santamaría’s jazz standard receives a soulful, stunning makeover.

ScHoolboy Q – “There He Go”

Freewheeling bravado from Black Hippy’s wildest member, who talks his shit with some help from Sounwave’s funky canvas of Menomena and Monk Higgins samples.
