Mistletoe Music: Feat. Ye Ali, Huey Draper & Jhené Aiko

By AJ - Host

This Christmas Eve special of Subhan, represents our final show of 2018 !!! I want to convey my best wishes to all of you during the holiday season, and hope you are able to spend time with those that you love.  I also want to take time to say a huge thank you to all the guests that have been a part of the show this year, all of them have amazing movements going on & if you did miss our conversations, you can listen to them via the following link: Listen to all of our interviews for 2018 here. 

 

 

This episode features a couple of my favourite Christmas throwbacks from the likes of Boyz II Men, R. Kelly & Keith Sweat. Amongst all the nostalgia, the mix also features new music from the likes of Eli Sostre, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Kodak Black, 21 Savage, Young Smoke & many others. 

I also premiere the latest single from up & coming Ottawa artist Huey Draper  during the show! His latest melodic offering "Dash" calls in the heavyweights with features from prominent members of the Ottawa scene JUWN & Chanksdaddy. Don't sleep and listen to the track below: 

 

With this being the last episode of 2018, it is only fitting that the show is concluded with my track of the year. The past 365 days has arguably been one of the best times in music with releases from all of your favourite artists. With that being said, Subhan's 2018 Track of the Year goes to Chicago's latest rising star, Polo G,  with his emotionally immersive track "Finer Things". The motivational anthem details the pain and struggles of the 19 year old's pursuit of a better life. Watch the video for his break out record below: 

 

Lastly, I want to express a huge amount of gratitude to all of you listeners and supporters of the show. Subhan has been on the airwaves since 2012, but 2018 represents the first year in which I have been more vulnerable and open with the show in its promotion. The goal with Subhan has always been to provide a platform for creatives & artists and to generally to show love to those who are doing amazing things. All the positive feedback has been immense, and I promise to take Subhan to the next level in the coming year.  Be safe this holiday season, and try your best to do better & be better in the new year & I will do the same <3 

Love Always, 

AJ
