[Commercials with Great Music] [Electronic/Bass:] Men$a – Nothing Like This (feat. Love Lola Love) // Sofi Tukker – Awoo (feat. Betta Lemme)


[Electronic & Bass:] Men$a – Nothing Like This (feat. Love Lola Love)

You never seen nothing, like this………DEM NEVA SEEN NOTHING LIKE DIS

Today’s featured track is EDM producer and DJ Men$a’s “Nothing Like This.” The song is a high-energy dance number that features heavy bass over a fairly fast BPM. Reggae dancehall samples, “Dem neva seen nothing like dis,” mix very well with the British-accented Love Lola Love‘s vocals. Her style on this track is very reminiscent of Santigold or M.I.A. The synth-break/drop is not entirely unpredictable, however the track is funky and very different nonetheless. I had heard of Men$a before but never checked out his music, if this is an indicator of his tracks I will be listening to much more Men$a from now on 🙂

Men$a’s “Nothing Like This” featured in the latest Old Navy commerical (as of mid-August 2017)

The song, released 6 days ago is featured in a new Old Navy commercial that was released 3 days ago. This likely means the song was made in conjunction with the commercial (to be released/used by Old Navy very quickly) or was made for the commercial. Typically songs made just for commercials are not released to the public (ex: Arby’s “Triple Thick Trap Remix”, most of Scion’s commercial music, etc.) The only exception’s have been songs so popular in commercials the original artist ending up having to release it or extend it (that trap number that was in Mountain Dew’s “Puppy Monkey Baby” campaign with the dancing Asian guy, ended up actually being released.)

Old Navy had another commercial this summer with some banger music. Their “Hi-Light” commercial featuring a bunch of friends hopping out of their cars at a red light and dancing til the light turns green had some notable music. Sofi Tukker’s “Awoo” was featured in the ad and is quite the spicy latin-flavored pop number itself. Be sure to check it out.

I know, I did, not raise a wrist
I know, I did, not capture it
It came (it came), it went (it went), it conquered quick
I was there, and then, I quit…
