Circles’ by Mac Miller (2020)

The album, ‘Circles’ embodies the evolution of Mac Miller and his music. Miller started his music career with spunky, funny rap, this album has that along with his emotional vibe all in one. With the wild visuals to go along with the original sound, Mac Miller’s first album since his death with nothing short of an exclamation point to his short life. From subtle songs like “Circles,” to emotional, revealing songs such as “Once a Day,” Miller gives his listeners a variety of spunky lyrics to emotional verbage to embody his later years of life. I have been a fan of Mac Miller and his music since he began in the early 2010s, this album is the culmination of his evolution as an artist. My personal favorites from the album are, “Woods” and “Once a Day.” Each of these songs show a different style of the artist, Miller shows his rap skills in “Woods,” and his emotional hurting side in “Once a Day.” The whole album is a chill experience rather than some of his earlier work which has more of a true rap feel. I highly recommend this album and anything Mac Miller. Most dope forever! Available on all music streaming services.
