Music Discovery: May 2020

Hi, my name is Brittany Ward and I’m a Music Supervisor at PlayNetwork. My job requires an eclectic music taste, but my personal tastes range from hip-hop to country with everything in between. I love discovering new music and my favorite sounds to listen to have a blend of multiple genres. Below, are some of my crossover songs I’ve been listening to lately.


Artist: Parisalexa

Track: Chocolate

Hailing from the Seattle area, Parisalexa had a busy last year appearing on the TV show Songland to perform a song she wrote in front of Charlie Puth and other judges who gave her the praise all of us in the Northwest knew she deserved. She’s been on my radar for quite some time but her new music is making a leap into a new level of R&B pop music.


Artist: Margo Price

Track: Twinkle Twinkle

Twitter: @MissMargoPrice

Margo Price has been one of my new favorites in the country music genre and now she is taking a turn into the rock realm with her new album dropping May 8th, produced by Sturgill Simpson. It still sounds country and this song is a perfect example of what blends of sounds are to come from her.


Artist: Thundercat

Track: Fair Chance (feat. Ty Dolla $ign & Lil B)

Twitter: @Thundercat

One of the most versatile artists of the current time, Thundercat not only makes incredible albums, but he also has probably played instruments on your favorite artists’ songs. Not so much a crossover track as just a diverse alternative R&B sound throughout all his new album It Is What It Is. This song is about Mac Miller who passed away in 2018 and who was close friends with all the artists on this song.
