EDITORS’ NOTES

French Montana doesn’t have much of a singing voice, but what he hasn’t got in pipes, he makes up for in knowing his audience (along with plenty of Auto-Tune). Jungle Rules comes four years after the Bronx native’s debut and is heavy on longing, loving, and leaning in to the notion that pop melody is integral for rap albums. The task is outsourced occasionally (Marc E. Bassy on “She Workin,” Swae Lee on “Unforgettable”) but falls on French for the most part, the rapper using Ben Billions and Harry Fraud to push his voice to new heights.
