Whether you need a weekend turn up anthem or a smooth jam for a kickback, this series will highlight the week’s hottest song to add in your collection. Vibe out and enjoy! #MelodyPutYouOn

If there’s one thing fans can count on with Migos, it’s the group’s ability to release an anthem. From hits like “Bad and Boujee” to “MotorSport” to “Stir Fry,” the Atlanta trappers are batting a thousand on each single. Migos is back with its second single of 2019, “Position To Win.” The track first appeared in a Mountain Dew commercial in January and now that the full song is out, there’s a strong possibility it will be featured on the group’s upcoming album Culture III. Quavo begins the track in motivation mode as he says “Steppin’ up, always take the risk / Livin’ life, go hard and don’t quit.” The song beams with similar lyrics of inspiration that could be used in any walks of life, but it could also be an essential theme for sports fans and athletes everywhere.

This week in sports has been one for the books. A lackluster Super Bowl...  well unless you’re a New England Patriots fan. A Super Bowl halftime show in which fans were more excited to see Spongebob Squarepants perform “Sweet Victory” than they were to see Maroon 5. Woj bombs filling up the Twitter timeline with NBA trade news, along with Kevin Durant growing tired of reporters asking him about free agency.

Well after the sports world took over this first week in February, “Position To Win” is the perfect song as fans gear up for NBA All-Star Weekend and see if their team will be in a position to make the NBA playoffs over the remainder of the season.
