The Weeknd Drops “The Hills”

The Weeknd may still be enjoying the success of his single “Earned It,” but he’s back today with a new single and video fans are sure to enjoy.

“The Hills” arrives online just two days after a number of unexpected leaks from The Weeknd hit the net (including the incredible “I Can’t Feel My Face“). Whether this release is a response to those leaks or an attempt to better control the conversation remains unclear, but the quality of this material is undeniable. There is very little to the song that is outside the typical sound of …

The New Sorority Noise Album Will Probably Change Our Lives

Anyone who is connected to the alternative and indie rock worlds with even the faintest of interest no doubt failed to make it out of 2014 without hearing The Hotelier‘s phenomenal album, Home Like NoPlace Is There. And that’s perfectly fine. It’s great, in fact. That album is incredible and it deserves to be heard by as many people with ears to hear that exist today, but as far as buzzworthy records go it’s high time a new king be crowned and Sorority Noise are currently making a damn strong argument that their upcoming release be next in …

We Came As Romans Stream “The World I Used To Know”

Michigan natives We Came As Romans continue their transformation from breakdown-loving bad boys to radio rock titans this afternoon with the premiere of “The World I Used To Know.”

It has been a minute since fans last heard from We Came As Romans, and in that time the band has spent a lot of time developing their skills as both songwriters and musicians. The band reportedly wrote forty songs for their upcoming self-titled album, but in the end decided that only ten of those tracks were good enough to make the actual record. “The World I Used To Know” was …

Rick Ross & Big Sean Remix Future’s “Commas”

Following a lackluster 2014, Future has spent the first half of 2015 reaffirming his positing amongst the hip-hop elite. His latest offering, “Commas,” boasts an ego-driven flow that has spent the past several weeks winning over rap fans coast to coast. The song hasn’t cracked the top of the charts as of yet, but a new remix making the rounds online this morning leads us to believe that will soon change.

Late last night, May 25, a new remix of “Commas” found its way online. The tracks strips all of Future’s verses from the original effort and replaces them with …

The Weeknd Shares “I Can’t Feel My Face”

With “Earned It” continuing to dominate the charts, The Weeknd has surprised fans once again with a surprise single release.

“I Can’t Feel My Face” appeared online late Monday night, May 25. The song boasts dance-ready production inspired by the heights of funk and soul. It’s the kind of endless groove that could play all night long, and Abel’s voice only serves to take the entire affair to the next level. The drug use alluded to in the title is not as present in the music as one might expect, but it’s implied nonetheless. You can stream the song below.…

New Music: Young Thug – “Spaghetti Factory” & “Scoop”

There have been so many quality Young Thug loosies dropping as of late I wouldn’t be surprised if the man behind Barter 6 had a new mixtape on the way. I don’t know if that is the plan or not, but I know our site certainly wouldn’t complain.

This weekend, while most of us were enjoying the kickoff to summer fun (a month before summer begins), unreleased material from Young Thug was hitting the net like surprise gifts from the music gods. The first, “Spaghetti Factory,” arrived early on Memorial Day boasting gothic production courtesy of Metro Booming. The second, …

SINGLE REVIEW: Luke Bryan – “Kick The Dust Up”

Artist: Luke Bryan
Song: “Kick The Dust Up”
Album: Kill The Lights

Two years after crashing the bro country party with an album chock full of future hit singles, Luke Bryan has kicked off the promotion for his latest release with an incredibly underwhelming ode to farm town parties.

“Kick The Dust Up” is the kind of song that wants to remind you of a time when country music was actually inspired by cornfields, dirt roads, and late nights spent with the farmer’s daughter, getting drunk alongside your best friends. If that is all you want from your music — …

A$AP Rocky Shares “Electric Body” Featuring Schoolboy Q

The hits just keep coming…

Just a few days after surprising everyone with the rock-driven vibes of “LSD,” A$AP Rocky has shared another exciting track off his upcoming sophomore release.

“Electric Body” is the kind of song that reminds you why you first fell in love with A$AP Rocky. Backed by unique production that toes the line between trap sensibilities and something a bit more futuristic, Rocky and longtime collaborator Schoolboy Q go in bar after bar with their signature tongue-tying flows. With the holiday weekend upon us, this is definitely the type of song you will want …

New Music: Drake & Beyonce – “Can I”

Earlier this year, music writer Ernest Baker had the opportunity to shadow Drake while working on a feature for the popular site FourPins. In the resulting article, Baker wrote that the Toronto native only had two songs completed for the long-awaited album Views From The Six, including one track that featured Beyonce and had been recorded some time prior to 2015. No one thought we would hear that song any time soon, but late last night a collaborative effort between Drake and Bey titled “Can I” found its way online.

Rolling Stone brought to our attention this morning, …

Migos Release “Origin” Music Video

Offset may still be behind bars, but that is not stopping the men of Migos from building hype for their upcoming debut album.

Today, less than a week after releasing their Still On Lock mixtape, Migos partnered with WorldStarHipHop to share their video for “Origin.” The song appears to be taken from Migos’ debut album, YRN, which is slated for release on June 16. Like “One Time,” the track is one of the more structured efforts in the group’s catalog, with each emcee taking a verse and making it their own. The hook talks about the origin of the …

Young Thug Drops “Destroyed” Featuring Birdman, Kevin Gates

Young Thug has been on new music spree since the release of Barter 6 back in April, and today he continues that trend by sharing a song about relationships called “Destroyed.”

Joined by Birdman and Kevin Gates, with just a little help from MPA Duke, Young Thug uses “Detroyed” to vent about relationship turned sour and the lasting impact that falling out had on Thugga Thugga’s heart. If that sounds a bit more emotionally involved for your typical star-studded rap collaborations that is because that is exactly what Young Thug wanted to accomplish with this track. Too many rappers …
