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!
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!
After her iconic Superbowl performance, Missy Elliott might actually be making the comeback we have been waiting for. She teased us with a comeback a couple of years ago, and never dropped anything after that. She has been previewing pictures of her and Timbaland in the studio, and now she features on this Jack Ü track, which is definitely a hard hitter. I have been waiting to hear what Missy does in this day in music. I love this track, and I have been looking forward to this Jack Ü collaboration for a while now, this is just the beginning.
