IndieRotation Chart: Ro James, Nina Sky, Asia Shabazz, Dawn Richard, More

Singersroom’s “IndieRotation” is a weekly evaluation of the latest singles, leaks and releases from independent artists. Each week we will deliver a list that showcases the week’s hottest records based on our editorial staff, listeners feedback and spins.

Ro James stands on top for the second consecutive week, leading a legion of listeners to “Pledge Allegiance” with arms cross over their hearts.

New additions on this week’s chart are Nina Sky in second place and Asia Shabazz in the third position. Nina Sky battled their record label to be released from their contract and move forward with their creativity. Now, the independent duo are making a living in nightclubs with pounding bass drums with records like “Day Dreaming” and “Heartbeat.”

L.A. based newcomer Asia Shabazz’s “Like the Radio” is an uptempo record that allows her to live by her words, “born to sing & live to dance.” The dance ready cut vary in melodies to carry ears throughout the length of the song.

Cheri Coke and Melo-X dropped their first collaborative project ‘X/Coke’ this week. The project is a free download of a nu wave trill sex experience, evident on “The Garden of Eden.”
