Issa Rae announced a few weeks ago that season two of “Insecure” will be premiering on July 23. The show’s soundtrack was one of the main reasons for why I fell in love with the show. Solange was the show’s music consultant, which makes sense for it’s perfection. I’m not sure if she will have that same position for the new season, but I have potential tracks that may be featured.
“New LA” – SiR Ft. Anderson .Paak & King Mez
Rae is an L.A. girl and one of the show’s locations, so the track is beyond fitting for the soundtrack. SiR and Paak are both from California and multiple California natives were featured last season: Kendrick Lamar, The Internet, KING.
“Get You” – Daniel Caesar Ft. Kali Uchis
Caesar is an R&B artist that is on the rise and “Get You” continues to gain popularity. Rae is a fan of Sampha, who is an alternative R&B artist like Caesar; they share a similar refreshing sound.
“Passionfruit” – Drake
Rae is one of Drake’s biggest fans; she calls him her “sensitive bae”. The first episode of the series featured his track “Feel No Ways” from “Views”. If it’s not specifically “Passionfruit”, then it will be another song from the “More Life” tracklist.
“Lick” – Cardi B Ft. Offset
Everyone has their ratchet side and Rae has proven that she’s guilty of having one. “Lick” could possibly be played when Rae is turning up and moving on from Lawrence.
The countdown until the season two premiere starts now!
