NEW MUSIC: M.I.A – Bird Song (Diplo Remix)

mia-aim

M.I.A is pulling out all the stops for, what may be, her last album. She has given us the banger, “Go Off“, and now she tones it down with a Diplo Remix of the track,”Bird Song”.

Earlier this month, she released the Blaqstarr remix to this track, and now we have Diplo giving us his take on the kazoo filled track. If you didn’t know M.I.A and Diplo haven’t had the best track record with each other, but I’m glad they were able to settle their differences because I believe it is a pair that can’t be matched.

Take a listen to the Diplo remix below, and after the jump is the Blaqstarr remix!

NEW VIDEO: BANKS – Fuck With Myself

BANKS  has always been an interest to me with her quirky and soft spoken style. This time around she gives us “Fuck With Myself”, which falls into the category or recently released zero fucks anthems. I’m loving this track, and she even recently released another track “Gemini Feed” which you can peep the video for after the jump!

NEW EP: Stanaj – The Preview

Just days after we announced our Artist Spotlight for the month of August, he goes and announces his debut EP. Stanaj gives us The Preview, a short but epic EP of what is just a taste to come.

It features four very different tracks, one you may have heard from our feature, “Romantic”. The biggest standout for me is his obvious vocal talent, but don’t let that take away from the many other talents this guy has. The production, the lyrics, the flow, everything just fits perfectly to make some serious good R&B flavored vibes.

Go buy this, support some soon to be huge talent. It is even available for stream on Spotify.

It is finally time for our Artist Spotlight of the month! This month’s goes to the extremely soulful and smooth vocalist, Stanaj.

I stumbled on this guy about 2 years ago, because I came across his cover of Miguel’s “All I Want Is You”, which is one of my favorite tracks by him. I was instantly hooked on the vocals that Stanaj so effortlessly creates. With a limited number of videos of him I was at a standstill for quite some time.

He produced some short instagram videos and that was all I had to deal with as I tried to keep up with his career. Well now he is making some serious presence with an original and so many more covers.

I put the first video I found below, and after the jump you’ll find much more information on the talent that is, Stanaj!

NEW VIDEO: JoJo – Fuck Apologies [Ft. Wiz Khalifa]

Less than 24 hours after the surprise release of her debut single from her album, Mad Love, JoJo gives us the official visuals. The track is going to be huge, it is almost a grown up version of “Leave (Get Out)”, from the start of her career.

I can’t wait to hear Mad Love, because this girl knows exactly what she is doing musically in every way.

I am so here for this.

NEW MUSIC: JoJo – Fuck Apologies [Ft. Wiz Khalifa]

02-jojo-2.w529.h352

One of my favorites for quite some time, JoJo,  has just surprise dropped her next single off her upcoming album. After giving us her Tringle almost a year ago now, she finally gives us more life with new music. “Fuck Apologies” is right down the lane she has been paving for the last decade are so and I am so glad it is all coming together.

This track fuels JoJo’s zero fucks attitude that we have all fallen in love with recently, and the music that is coming from it is perfection. She has a raw emotion that can’t be matched by anyone right now.

In addition, JoJo has stated that her album, Mad Love, will be released on October 14th of this year, so even more to look forward to in addition to this track.

Take a listen below, and catch JoJo on tour with Fifth Harmony this summer on their 7/27 tour!!

NEW MUSIC: Major Lazer – Cold Water [Justin Bieber & MØ]

Major Lazer has given us yet another smash. They enlist superstar Justin Bieber and MØ, who was one of the talents on their previous smash, “Lean On”. “Cold Water” was written by Benny Blanco and Ed Sheeran and you can definitely hear their influences throughout the track.

We are all used to hearing Major Lazer with some hard hitting summer smashes, but they decide to tone it down with this one and I think it is perfection. While Justin Bieber sounds fantastic on this track, I believe that MØ stole the show on this one. Although her part is short, the quirky and unique vocals are perfectly fitting over this track.

“Cold Water” is a fresh and new take from what we have been hearing on the radio these days. Major Lazer has been churning out the bangers and whenever they decide to release their next album, I see great things happening for them.
