  1. Hotel Costes
  2. Hit Me Up/ 3 A.M.
  3. Choices
  4. Rewind
  5. Not 4 Sale
  6. We Fcuk
  7. Summer’s Over

Hotel Costes seemed to me as if it can definitely be a radio hit, with a pop feel. Hit Me Up/3 A.M. sounds like a club song, synth pop feel mixed with R&B. Choices sounds like a song singer Bryson Tiller would make. Them two should definitely collab on a song. I would say them two together would blow the industry out of the park with their singing skills. Rewind, I loved the beat. It had like an old school early 2000’s beat to it. Kind of sounded as if it was a hint of a reggae beat. Not 4 Sale, I loved the words to the song and the meaning behind it.

‘Cause My Love ain’t for sale no more.

Take it how you want.

I use to think about you all the time

But now that shit is gone.
