While his huge hit ‘I Don’t Fuck With You’, continues to rise on the charts, Big Sean releases another track from his upcoming album Dark Sky Paradise, due out Feb 24th. This track is basically everything you would expect from someone under the GOOD music label. Each one of them goes in on their verse, and I’m not the biggest fan of any of these three, but I have to say I love the vibe of this track. Everything I have heard from Big Sean’s new album, I have been a fan of. I think switching over to GOOD music was definitely a great move on his part, he is going to flourish this year!

NEW MUSIC: Jess Glynne – Hold My Hand

The talent behind Clean Bandit’s biggest track, ‘Rather Be’, continues her solo career with the release of ‘Hold My Hand’. She previously released a huge track last year titled ‘Right Here‘, and while this is less dance floor ready, it has summer vibes all over it and I love it. It’s catchy, it’s feel good, and Jess sounds fantastic! I have loved all her solo stuff she has put out so far, I’m looking forward to, what will hopefully be, a huge year for her.

NEW MUSIC: Rihanna – FourFiveSeconds [Ft. Paul McCartney & Kanye West]

The #R8 era begins!

I have been waiting quite a while for Rihanna to drop a track, after taking quite a long break from the scene, she gives us a huge surprise by dropping ‘FourFiveSeconds’. The very acoustic sounding track features huge legends, Kanye West and Paul McCartney, and I have to say that I absolutely love it. I don’t think Rihanna has sounded better on any of her tracks yet, I prefer this Rih over any of her dance tracks, but still love me some Rihanna anyway. I predict a huge album for her, she has been missed from the industry and she is going to come back stronger than ever.

watch out world!

ALBUM STREAM: Jazmine Sullivan – Reality Show

I haven’t heard this album as a whole just yet, but from what I have heard is fantastic. The music business was missing this lady, and I’m so glad she is back, her debut album back in 2008, Fearless, was fantastic. I expect nothing less from this album, soul and all. Get into the album below!

Also if you missed out on this soulful cover of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing‘, just listen to it.

NEW MUSIC: Jimmy Napes – Give It Up

The man behind some of 2014’s BIGGEST tracks, Jimmy Napes, gives us some fire with ‘Give It Up’. The man has been responsible for tracks with Disclosure and Sam Smith just to name a few big names, and now has stepped out on his own and definitely didn’t disappoint! ‘Give It Up’ is definitely not like his previous works, but it has its own flavor which will fit very well into the UK scene, maybe not so much over here in the US. Jimmy Napes has plans to release an EP titled The Making of Me around March, and I have to say if this is just the beginning, I’m really excited to hear what else this guy can churn out!

Support!

NEW MUSIC: N.E.R.D – Squeeze Me

Thanks to the upcoming movie, Sponge Out of Water, we get to hear N.E.R.D reunited, while it’s no ‘Lapdance’, or ‘Rockstar’, I have admit this is kind of a catchy tune. It is nice to hear the trio back together, and because this is just a track for a kids film, you can’t expect them to bring it like they usually do. I do have to admit the beat is quite sick, and you can definitely hear their classic sound. I can tell they haven’t lost any of their flavor, and let’s hope we hear from them in 2015, because I would love to have them back!
