On first listen, New York rapper SquidNice's "Everywhere I Go" sounded to me like a solid but lackadaisical take on the ominous, melodic style of rap so common these days. A couple of days later, I found myself humming that chorus and wanting to hear it again. Within a week, "Everywhere I Go" was in regular rotation. The song is hypnotic but still hits, and SquidNice has the confidence, charisma, and voice to pull it off.
