DJ Khaled has definitely given us a song for the summer with this one! “I’m the One” is star studded giving us verses from Quavo from Migos, Wayne, the legendary Chance the Rapper, and Justin Bieber smashing the hook!
The video is pretty basic, but it definitely sets the scene for the track for sure. Summer vibes all around on this one, and it is an absolute banger! DJ Khaled has given us some pretty amazing tracks this year, and only more to come! Rumor has it he has a Rihanna collab coming titled, “Grateful”, so be on the lookout for that soon!
“Light My Body Up” is definitely going to be a song for the summer, and features two huge names. I was hesitant on the Lil Wayne feature because I was expecting a pop anthem that we are used to from Guetta, but this is just perfection. Guetta tones it down and gives us something more bass heavy and basically it all just fits together perfectly.
I have been a huge fan of THEY. for quite some time, and I now realize that I haven’t shown them any love on the blog. What a perfect way to start off by introducing you to THEY. with their super dope visuals for “What You Want”. THEY. have taken the dying art of a music video and done something completely unusual and well, trippy.
If you are fan of “What You Want”, I’ll include a link to stream their newest album after the jump! I highly recommend you check it out!
Lorde has finally made her long awaited comeback dropping a new track and visuals for her return! “Green Light” is definitely something very unexpected that we are used to hearing from the quirky songstress.
Lorde gives us an almost brighter sound with production that could easily be fit for Taylor Swift or Coldplay, and while that isn’t the worst comparison, it is for Lorde. Her 2013 album, Pure Heroin, broke boundaries and changed the music game giving life to artists like Flume and Kiiara. “Green Light” just kind of falls flat for me, and there is nothing there to stand out.
In addition, she has given us the title of her upcoming album, Melodrama, which she says is inspired by David Bowie. I’m still slightly interested in hearing it, so hopefully her next single will change the game again.
Bruno Mars just killed the visuals for this track. 24k Magic is still on repeat, even at 9 tracks long, the album is legendary. He did something completely different from this video. No big productions like his previous track “24k Magic“, no fancy sets, just him and some seriously cool drawings to match the lyrics.
Dua Lipa has been slowly on the rise for the past year now. She was one of our Artists To Watch of 2016, and with 2017 coming to a start she gives us the visuals from what may be one of my favorite tracks from her. “Thinking ‘Bout You’ is so simple yet gives us so much.
Dua’s vocals are absolutely unreal on this track which is what instantly draws me. The video is simple, giving us Dua in her minimal form, but that allows the track to speak for itself. Just watch it, you won’t be disappointed.
For those that don’t know, I discovered the legend that is Ed Sheeran from SB.TV 7 years ago from their A64 sessions. With the 10 year reunion of their amazing website being today, they bring it back to artists that started it all. We have Ed Sheeran giving us a little F64 of a track from his newest album Divide, “Eraser”.
After the jump, I included the video that started it all for me. I highly recommend you check it out!
