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!
One of my favorite bands to come out of the past 5 years, has definitely been the trio Years & Years. With the song growing in popularity, it is only right that they bring in indie ‘it’ girl, Tove Lo, for the remix of ‘Desire’.
I really hope that his remix gives the push this gem needs to break the USA because they are such a talented band. The song didn’t need any help to begin with, it is a certified smash, but the addition of Tove Lo will give it some more credibility for sure.
If you remember correctly the music video was released in 2014, and they have just given it more life by adding a whole new spin. It follows the song lyrics more closely, almost portraying a giant orgy in a way. I feel like front man Olly Alexander had something to do with the concept of the new video. I love the song either way, and I seriously hope this band does well over here!
Now, I will just wait patiently for new Years & Years music.
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.
Now that fall has kicked in, I feel like the release of this track is just perfect. I have been a fan of both Rochelle Jordan and JMSN for quite some time now, both are huge talents in their own respects. So, needless to say, when the two join forces only perfection would come from it. ‘Lowkey’ is straight night time vibes, RoJo keeps it smooth with her vocals and later JMSN comes in and kills his verse and just adds to the flow of the track. These two fit perfectly together, even though separately their styles are quite different sounding.
These guys deserve so much credit because this track is definitely going to be on repeat for a while!
I have already expressed my love for this track in its original form, but now Maverick brings the raw talents of many UK artists. First, I am really happy to see Devlin back on tracks, he has been one of my favorites for a while now, I love his flow so much. While I’m not too familiar with George the Poet, both him and Chipmunk brought fire to this track. The features on this track gives the track a much different vibe than the original, and both will definitely be on repeat.
We have been getting hints at this collab for a little bit now, and it has finally dropped. I have to admit, this is fire! Beyonce and Nicki make a perfect team, I’m not sure why Beyonce hasn’t done too many features before, it definitely adds to her tracks. Nicki adds probably one of her best verses yet to the track, and while I haven’t heard her single ‘Anaconda’ yet, if she brings this much heat to a feature, lets hope she continues with it on her own solo stuff.
Beyonce also takes a quick second to kind of address the elevator incident that she kind of brushed off with her official statement. Anyway, I’m here for the track and not the drama.
Disclosure is one of my favorite artists to come out of the last couple of years, and they can do no wrong, and this track just proves that. While the original track was huge when it first came out, Disclosure adds a slight sooth dancefloor ready vibe to it, and it is fantastic! I would love to hear more remixes from these guys. I don’t know if they are in talks of a new album, since their first album is still churning out the tunes, but I have to say I’m ready for it!
