“Right Now” – Cam Be x Neak x Sam Trump
defeated “Welcome To The Future” by Baby FuzZ in the Round of 32.
defeated “Ferris Wheels” by Canyon City in the Sweet Sixteen.
defeated “Next Time We’re Flying” by Landon Sears x Bren Joy in the Elite Eight.
defeated “Soothsayer” by Haunted Like Human in the Final Four.
“Right Now” is the sixth track from Chicago-based artist Cam Be‘s 2020 album “Summer in September.” Bolstered by a bouncing bass line and garnished with a lavish arrangement of horns — which particularly spotlight Sam Trump‘s chops on trumpet — the song carries the heart of a 70’s soul song, offered through the musical lens of a jazzier Mac Miller track. Neak also comes to the table with a nice verse that acts as a perfect musical counterweight to Cam Be’s more mellow vocals.

“Superglue” – Lil Late
defeated “Explore You” by Herschel Lamont x Romario in the Round of 32.
defeated “Losing Sleep” by Dylan Fraser in the Sweet Sixteen.
defeated “Tiny Whale” by Nathan-Paul in the Elite Eight.
defeated “Laela” by Owen St in the Final Four.
Los Angeles rapper/vocalist Lil Late released his third single of 2020, “Superglue,” on December 1st. Melodic and brooding, it borrows elements of downtempo emo and hip-hop. Lyrically, the song centers around someone so stuck in Lil Late’s head that they’re “superglued in (his) mind.” The beat is ambient and spacey, and the overall vibe and feel of the track calls to mind artists like Post Malone or BROCKHAMPTON‘s bearface.
