Our top TV song last week is Make It by Pyrex, which closed out last week’s episode of Ballers on HBO.
A rapper turned vocalist from Toronto, this choice featured sync in Ballers is the first major placement for Pyrex. Noisey calls this song “a deeply thoughtful reflection of having friends incarcerated and the life that leads to that kind of separation.”
Featuring new music and emerging artists is a point of pride for Music Supervisor Scott Vener, who built up a track record of doing this on shows like Entourage and How to Make It in America. Vener has told his Twitter followers to keep an ear open for more new artists that will be featured during the end credits of this season of Ballers. Want more new music tips from Vener? Check out his Beats1 radio show OTHERtone, which he co-hosts with Pharrell.
