Chanmina: ‘Chocolate’ – Album Review

Released: November 15, 2017 (Victor Entertainment) Aspiring Japanese rapper Chanmina made some waves last year with her debut effort Miseinen—a record boasting a fun blend of hip-hop and electronic sounds (I recommend her track "Over" from the album; it's pure fire).

Björk: ‘Utopia’ – Album Review
