Willow Drops Another Great Album With The Punk-Focused "lately I feel EVERYTHING"
Whenever an artist announces an album that marks a significant stylistic shift from their previous work, it's easy for their fans to immediately give them the side-eye. The Hip-Hop community has seen it time and time again, from Lil Wayne's rap-rock follow-up to Tha Carter 3 in 2010 to Kid Cudi's heavily scrutinized rock project Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven in 2015.
Thankfully, Willow's fourth studio album is not in the same realm as either of those aforementioned records. Titled lately I feel EVERYTHING, the project serves as Willow's unapologetic foray into the pop-punk and alternative rock genres, and it comes stacked with features from Travis Barker, Avril Lavigne, Tierra Whack, Ayla Tesler-Mabe, and Cherry Glazerr.
Opened by the previously released "t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l," lately I feel EVERYTHING is a lean 26-minute offering of angsty, passionate, and sonically impressive music, and it makes for a commanding and entertaining listen from the Paramore-esque opener to Willow's interpolation of Kanye West's "Power" on the album closer "¡BREAKOUT!"
