Mixtape Monday: We'll do it live
This week's staff picks include Girl's Day, NBA YoungBoy, and two in-concert recordings.
It’s time for yet another edition of Mixtape Monday, where Activision Blizzard King employees share what they’re listening to while they’re creating the games you know and love.
Last week’s picks leaned toward the loud; this week, we lean toward the live—two of our five recommendations were recorded in front of real audiences.
Oh, and one more thing: You asked us for listening links to more music services, and we have provided them. Enjoy.
Without further ado:
Evanescence, “Bring Me to Life (Live from Le Zénith).” On the 20th anniversary of the radio hit, a live version with Amy Lee and co. at the height of their powers. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube. (Recommended by Adrian Ledda, head of inclusive game design, Toys for Bob)
YoungBoy Never Broke Again, “WTF (feat. Nicki Minaj).” A surprisingly pensive record from the rapid-fire rapper. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube. (Recommended by Irene Sizemore, associate test analyst, Blizzard)
Erykah Badu, “Tyrone (live).” Getting a talking to from Ms. Badu never felt so good. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube. (Recommended by Marques Edge, editor, Activision Blizzard King)
That’s it for this week!
