We have been waiting for a Rihanna album for a lot longer this time around, she has decided to take about a 2 year break opposed to the album every year stance. After releasing the hugely successful ‘FourFiveSeconds’ she has teased about the release of ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ for it’s release today, and here it finally is. Upon hearing the title I imagined something quite more ratchet and hard. I guess, I am a little disappointed, but I feel like this track will definitely grow on me seeing as I have missed the Rihanna tracks as of late. I am definitely getting some Drake vibes on this track with all her rapping and stuff. This will for sure be an anthem for some and maybe even me at some point, but hey, she will definitely chart because she is Rihanna.
Also, no, I don’t understand the eyebrows.
Enjoy the edited version below!
The very talented Brayton Bowman gives us more life with his track “Skin Deep” which is about having nothing in common with someone except your looks. He has collaborated with the equally talented MNEK, who previously just released his EP Small Talk. The collaboration between the two is immaculate and I really hope the two collaborate more in the future because everything they both do is just plain right. If you haven’t checked out Brayton’s debut EP, you need to!
I can’t wait to hear what he has in store for us next, this is just the beginning!
If you don’t know the talent that is Jody Brock by now, I highly suggest you dive in right now!
I have been following his career for quite sometime now, and I am highly impressed with everything has put out. After what feels like forever, we finally get an EP that was definitely worth the wait titled ‘Phoenix’. The one word I would use to describe Jody Brock and this whole EP is “Raw”. His sound is verging on rock with a soul which is definitely a sound we don’t have anywhere right now. If I had to compare it something, it would definitely be The Black Keys, but don’t let that get stuck in your head, because Jody adds so much more to that sound. Each track has a very distinct sound but keeps a very rock vibe going for it. I can’t even begin to describe the vocals on this EP, I thought I had heard it all, vocally, from him but he continues to impress.
Although I love the EP as a whole, I have to admit ‘User’ is definitely a standout track for me, so much depth and meaning behind every word in that song. I have posted the video for the song after the jump, which I highly suggest you watch right now!
Thank you Jody Brock for creating this, and I definitely hope this gives him enough momentum to cross over and play some shows in the USA here soon!
After falling in love with his talent, go buy the EP right here —–> Phoenix EP
This is the song he performed at the Brits earlier this week, and now we get an almost final version of the song. I have to say, I have been a fan of Ye’s tracks spawning out of this album, I’m not the biggest fan of this track just yet, I think I just need to hear it in full quality. I do like that kanye is giving Grime a small boost with this track.
Anyway, take a listen below!
Nick Jonas is definitely stepping out of his previous identity with this album. First collaborating with Tinashe, now with Jhene Aiko, I have to give the guy props. I really love his album too, it is definitely a solid crossover album filled with huge tracks. Now he has been remixing a lot of his tracks, and this ‘Chains’ remix is definitely one to keep. Jhene Aiko’s sexy, smooth vocals fit perfectly with Nick’s equally raw vocals. Everything about this track is great, it all just fits together so perfectly, Nick definitely knows what he is doing this time around and is going to get mad airplay on every airwave with this track.
After hearing the Missy cut from the much anticipated Jack U album, we get another taste with this Justin Bieber collaboration. It is a very strange collaboration, but I have to say it works quite well, Justin pours his heart out on an almost hypnotizing beat and it works great. After hearing both cuts from the album, I am pretty excited to hear this in whole, I have been a fan of both Skrillex and Diplo for quite some time so I don’t think they will disappoint with this one!
Jody Brock finally gives us a taste of his EP, Phoenix. I have been waiting for this EP for so long, and it is right around the corner. All we had before was a couple of acoustic performances of this song, which were fantastic, but I have to say the final version of this song is way better than anything I was expecting! It is weird hearing this song in final stage, because I have been listening to the acoustic version for so long now, but I can’t complain at all. It has a very big band sound and old school vibe, he is definitely doing something different with this and I love it. I don’t even know where to start with Brock’s vocals, no words for how amazing they are. Loving everything about this track, and I can’t wait till the entire EP gets released!
