For many artists, there comes a time where they want to go outside of their comfort zone and try something new. But sometimes, trying too hard can lead to a complete disaster. For electronic music, this can be a particularly risky endeavor because the genre is so broad and there are so many artists doing different things. As listeners, we’re so used to hearing the same thing over and over again that when someone breaks out of the mold, we either love it or hate it. This article will focus on the tracks that didn’t quite hit the radio but should have for a number of reasons.

It’s unfortunate that these tracks didn’t hit the radio because they all have such great potential. They show off a side of their respective artists that we haven’t seen before and they also show us what they could do if they pushed themselves even further in the future.

The music industry has changed a lot over the past decade with the steady decline of physical albums and the rise of digital music. But even with these changes, it’s still a tough world out there for new artists trying to make it. Working your way up into the charts is no easy task, and the most popular songs get played to death on radio stations across the country.

Here are ten songs from well-known artists that didn’t make it big in the US, but should have been. These songs didn’t get the airplay they deserved, or were only played on alternative radio stations like Sirius XM Alt Nation. If you love rock and electronic music, give them a listen!

The list of songs I am about to describe to you are all by big named artists, and for some reason never got the shine that they so rightfully deserve. This is a list of songs I feel everyone should hear at least once in their lives.

The first song on this list is by the hip hop group Mobb Deep called “Hey Luv (Anything)” featuring 112. This song was never released as a single, but it was on the album Infamy. The song starts off with a smooth piano sample, followed by Havoc’s signature deep voice rapping “I keep in touch with your mind, you keep in touch with mine” giving it that classic Mobb Deep vibe that we all love. After the first verse ends, it goes into a very well sung chorus by Daron Jones of 112. Then Prodigy comes in with his fast flow and carries the second verse through to completion. This song has a very laid back instrumental, but also has that hard hitting baseline that Mobb Deep is known for. All in all this song is amazing and I feel like it should’ve gotten more play than it did when it was released back in 2001.

Secondly I have another Mobb Deep track for you guys called

It’s not that this song wasn’t famous. It was definitely popular, but it just never reached the radio. If you’ve ever listened to this song, you would agree that it’s a shame it didn’t reach the radio. Whack World is the debut mixtape by Tierra Whack. It features 15 tracks, each one minute long. Whack World is a solid project, and “Pet Cemetery” is one of the highlights. The track has an experimental trap sound, with an eerie opening and lyrics about her relationship with her ex.

Thoughts: I really enjoy this song. It’s a different side of Tierra Whack that we haven’t seen before, which I love because she has so much versatility in her music!
