Reviews of the latest songs from Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, and Kanye West

Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, ”Feel Like a Rock Star”
In preparation for their upcoming Brothers of the Sun coheadlining summer tour, the country titans team up on this upbeat party anthem, in which Chesney leaves behind his beachside cabana and re-embraces the rocking sound of earlier hits like ”Young” and ”Big Star.” B+Grady Smith

Kanye West, ”Theraflu” and ”Mercy”
Only ‘Ye could konfess his love for Kim Kardashian on a DJ Khaled banger one day and go full-on Halloween the next. The boastful bounce of ”Theraflu” works great for mixtapes and headlines, but it can’t compete with superb collab ”Mercy,” haunted by icy hooks, a horror-rave breakdown, and a wailing dancehall ghost. ”Theraflu”: B ”Mercy”: A-Ray Rahman
