We discovered Kiana from when she toured with Jessie J, and we immediately fell in love! She has just released a 6-track EP titled Myself, and that is exactly what the project is covering.
Kiana’s vocals soar while she covers her struggles with anxiety and relationships on “Heavy“, then flips it around and gives us a light hearted, upbeat track like “Bouncin”. There was some hard work put into this project and every second of it shows!
We are going to have this on rotation for quite some time! We showcased the video to one of our favorites off the EP below, “Bouncin” which features Offset!

This is the moment we have been waiting for. While we loved Fifth Harmony, we always kept an eye on Normani. When the group announced they were taking a hiatus to work on solo projects, we got even more excited. Normani stunned us with her feature on Khalid’s “Love Lies“, and not to mention THAT performance!
Normani finally drops her first 2 solo tracks in a collaboration with Calvin Harris. They both have such a different feel, but they both absolutely work for her. “Slow Down” give us “Slide” vibes, but fit for the winter. “Checklist” is definitely more the island vibe, which we are already ready to see the video for!
We can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us to end out the year! Normani has a huge 2019 headed her way!!

Becky Hill is one of those artists which makes me wonder why she isn’t a huge talent yet. She has all the makings for superstar status, but just hasn’t had her break just yet. I have loved every single track she has put out so far, and with “Unpredictable” being the last track from her independent label EKO, she is about to move on to bigger things with Polydor Records! (James Blake & Kendrick Lamar)
Congrats to Becky Hill for being signed, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this amazing talent!! Hopefully it brings a USA tour, because we have been patiently waiting for one!
Take a listen to “Unpredictable” below, and after the jump check out her final independent EP, EKO!
I have been waiting to hear Daley‘s vocals for so long now. He has finally graced us with this amazing collaboration with Swindle. I am not familiar with Swindle right now, but after hearing this greatness I will definitely do some back-tracking.
This track is all funk with a very Prince inspired sound, if you can’t already tell from the cover art of the EP. Purple Walls is a short four track EP that will be released in February. For now we have the Daley assisted track in all its greatness to tide us over. Take a listen to the track below!
Stanaj was our Artist Spotlight a few months back, and now he gives us his debut music video off his fantastic EP, The Preview. “Ain’t Love Strange” is my favorite track off the EP, and the video is perfection. The visuals are basically an artsy representation of the lyrics which I think fits perfectly.
Stanaj is scheduled to perform this track on Jimmy Fallon tonight, and we have so much love for this talent. He will get his, much deserved, big break very soon.
Been a big supporter of M.O for quite some time now, and they have finally given us some new music in the form of the Good Friends EP.
M.O has been slowly improving their craft and finding exactly where they fit in, and this EP is everything we needed in the industry. There are times where it sounds like a modern version of Destiny’s Child, the harmonies are just fantastic.
The EP has everything from slow jams to some serious bangers, all the while keeping a very 90’s vibe. There is a huge standout on this EP, and that comes with the title track, “Good Friends”. There is some serious production going on there, and we have to shout out to Bless Beats for that. I’m not taking anything away from the EP has a whole though, it is fantastic from beginning to end.
Take a listen below!
Yeah, this is real life.
Surprising every single person on the internet, the great Jai Paul treats us with what could be one of the best mixtapes of the year. Giving us 16 untitled tracks, some of which include the incredible ‘Jasmine’ and BTSTU’, Jai Paul gives us everything we have been waiting for the past 6 years. There isn’t much else to say, just listen to it, and buy it because it is DEFINITELY worth the money.
Listen to the mixtape here!
R&B Singer, Miguel has released a short 3 track EP for FREE. His sound is definitely evolving to a more current R&B sound, and it sounds perfect. The short EP features the song ‘Adore’ for which he dropped a video for earlier this year. The other 2 tracks also have the same feel encompassing old school vibes, mixed with a more futuristic R&B sound. All 3 tracks on this EP are definitely pure fire, and best of all, its all free!
Miguel is set to drop an album this year, and judging by the way all of this is sounding, it definitely could be a winner.

This isn’t an official The Weeknd mixtape, but rather a remixed version by Chi Duly, of some of his biggest tracks from previous mixtapes. It adds a more trance/house kind of feel to most of the tracks, taking away the R&B side of it and giving it a little more beat and bass. I haven’t heard the whole thing through yet, but from what I have heard its definitely not as good as the originals, but it doesn’t disappoint either. Anyway decide for yourself!
Also if you haven’t heard of The Weeknd, ‘House of Balloons‘ is still on HEAVY rotation
Thanks to Pinboard for the EP
