This track isn’t quite “new”, but has been given it’s official release as of yesterday! It has been floating around the internet for about a year now, and with Mura Masa dropping his self-titled debut on July 14th, we get the official sound.
Mura Masa has made quite the name for himself as of late with features coming from A$AP Rocky and Charlie XCX. He now features one of my favorites, NAO, on the track “Firefly”. This track is definitely built for the summer, as is his entire album. The light xylophone sounding beat gives NAO room to shine.
His debut album has some quite heavy features on it including Desiigner, A.K Paul, and Gorillaz own, Damon Albarn.
Take a listen below, and watch out come July 14th, this debut is going to be a smash!
Lana Del Rey has officially returned with a sexy comeback!!
“Lust for Life” is absolutely everything we could ever hope for in a collaboration with The Weeknd and Lana. The duo has previously worked together on two tracks for The Weeknd, and now it is Lana’s turn. We enjoyed the duo together because they just fit so smoothly vocally and their styles just pair perfectly.
“Lust for Life” is everything we could ever want from the duo. It oozes sexy, and just the perfect track to get summer started.
Zayn has definitely carved a lane of his own since his One Direction departure, and now he gives us some new music featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR, “Still Got Time”.
“Still Got Time” is definitely made for the summer with the heavy drum production and almost tropical feel. It is the perfect track for him, but I don’t see it doing wonders like “Pillowtalk” did. I was expecting a little bit more since I feel like these two artists are the perfect blend, but I’ll take it.
I’ll jam to it, but it’s not life changing. Who knows, it definitely has potential to grow on me for sure.
David Guetta has come up with another smash!
“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.
Lorde tries to gain more momentum after releasing the Taylor Swift B-side, “Green Light“, giving us a softer side on “Liability”. The track is under 3 minutes, and actually isn’t terrible. It is a pretty basic track overall, but it gives a chance to listen to Lorde’s actual vocals without all that production behind it.
“Liability” is beautiful to an extent, it is definitely not the trademark Lorde sound that I’m waiting to hear, but it is a step in the right direction. That being said, I don’t find myself coming back to this track anytime soon, and my excitement for Melodrama is slowly fading.
Lorde’s “comeback” album, Melodrama, is due out June 16th. So far, definitely not worth the money.
In honor of the talents, MiC Lowry, dropping their next single “Whiskey Kisses” at midnight, we give you a little acoustic session from them. The amazingly talented five-some has done some serious work since being featured in our Artist Spotlight series last year, and now gives Anita Baker some “Sweet Love”.
MiC Lowry has toured with Justin Bieber, and has massive success with their smash “Oh Lord“. They just made their debut television performance of “Oh Lord” on the Wendy Williams show yesterday.
We can’t wait to hear their new single tonight, and everything else this group has to offer!
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!
