Migos Announce ‘Yung Rich Nation’ Tour

Riding high on the success of their recent trip to SXSW, Migos have unveiled plans to tour the United States with label mate OG Maco just in time for the release of their debut album.

Dubbed the Young Rich Nation Tour, the latest stateside run of shows from Migos will find the group criss-crossing the country over the course of four weeks. Along the way, the group will touch down in more than two dozen cities, including Boston, New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, New Orleans, and San Francisco. You can view the full routing, as well as the venues where …

Everclear-2015

Everclear Stream “American Monster”

It’s hard to believe that twenty years have passed since Everclear blessed us all with the release of Sparkle And Fade, but that is exactly the world we find ourselves in. Unfortunately, the band’s latest material doesn’t seem to possess the catchiness or immediate infectiousness found on that record, but they’re pushing forward regardless.

Today, the members of Everclear partnered with our pals at GuitarWorld to share the world premiere of a new song titled “American Monster.” It’s the second track to surface from the group’s forthcoming studio album, Black Is The New Black, and it just so …

Of Monsters And Men Announce New Album, Stream “Crystals”

Less than a week has passed since Mumford And Sons shared the first taste of their post-folk sound, and now it seems Of Monsters And Men want to prove they too have evolved since their debut. The band just announced a new album titled Beneath The Skin, and earlier today they shared a lyric video for the record’s first single.

I don’t know what I expected from “Crystals,” but I can promise you it wasn’t the song you’re about to hear. Of Monsters And Men have not completely abandoned the sound that made them top 40 mainstays, but like …

Kanye West 2014

So Help Us God: Kanye West Streams “Awesome”

Following the release of “All Day” just last week, Kanye West has shared a new song titled “Awesome.”

Allegedly an updated version of a song first premiered during a live performance nearly two years ago, “Awesome” is yet another vocoder-riddled track from Kanye West. It’s as if 808s And Heartbreaks happened all over again, only this time the lyrics speak to love (likely referencing wife Kim Kardashian) and lack the immediate catchiness of most the material contained on that album. That’s not to say the song is a waste of time altogether, but if you’re looking for the …

Jamie Foxx Shares “Pretty Young Thing” (Prod. By DJ Mustard)

Jamie Foxx is a jack of all trades when it comes to the world of entertainment. He sings, he dances, and he acts, though I’m not sure he’s ever successfully mixed all three outside of his performance in Ray, and it appears he will soon have a new album on shelves.

Rumors were persistent throughout 2014 that Foxx had been spending a lot of time working on new material in various recording studios around the globe. No album has surfaced as of yet, nor has any official announcement of one being planned been made, but in recent days a …

Stream Freddie Gibbs’ Surprise EP, ‘Pronto’

Freddie Gibbs made headlines around the globe last year for his genre-bending Pinata album, which was the result of a collaborative effort with Madlib. Those two are partnering again this summer for a series of high-profile festival appearances, but in the meantime Gibbs is focusing on his solo career, including the release of a surprise EP titled Pronto.

Released online late Sunday night, March 8, Freddie Gibbs’ latest solo offering is a three-track collection of new songs that bang hard and offer some of the better rap verses to hit the streets in 2015. It’s nothing too far outside …

Action Bronson and Chance The Rapper Share “Baby Blue”

The release of Action Bronson‘s long-awaited debut album is just weeks away, and earlier today the New York native shared a monstrous new single titled “Baby Blue.”

Co-written by Zane Lowe and produced by “Uptown Funk” creator Mark Ronson, the latest cut from Mr. Wonderful finds Action Bronson swapping bars with Chance The Rapper over a piano-heavy beat. It’s a lot lighter in tone than the title may lead you to believe, but there is a sense of heartache in several bars that is far too palpable to ignore. Bronson shines brightest, but Chance’s vocals on the hook …

Kanye West Shares Studio Version Of “All Day”

Following a live premiere during the BRIT awards last week, Kanye West has shared the studio version of “All Day.”

Rumored to be the latest single from West’s highly-anticipated new album, “All Day” is an high energy track that bangs even harder now than it did during its premiere (which came complete with flamethrowers). It’s an ego-fueled, give-no-fucks ode to the crazy level of success, fame, and sophistication Kanye believes to have achieved in his life. Theophilus London and newcomer Allan London help round out the hooks, but when all is said and done it’s only Kanye that people will …

Insurgent-Holes-In-The-Sky

M83 Stream “Holes In The Sky” Featuring HAIM

Whether or not you care about Insurgent, the fast-approaching sequel to the 2014 film Divergent, does not matter right now. The song you’re about to enjoy is taken from the film’s soundtrack, but your personal excitement (or lack thereof) for that particular feature should not impact how you view the song included in this post. It’s awesome, and it would be awesome regardless of how Insurgent performs. Good music is good music, plain and simple.

OKAY. Now that we have all that out of the way, I need to tell you about “Holes In The Sky.” Created by …

Carly-Rae-Jepsen-I-Really-Like-You

You’re Going To Really, Really, Really Like The New Carly Rae Jepson Single

Carly Rae Jepsen may have just done the impossible. Though many believed it could never be done, it seems the Canadian vocalist has finally recorded a song that may surpass the catchiness and lasting popularity of “Call Me Maybe.”

Earlier this morning, March 2, Carly Rae Jepsen shared a new song with the world titled “I Really Like You.” The sugar-coated pop anthem offers a high energy tale of love, or at least a crush, and the rush of excitement that follows that first encounter with someone special. The hook may be the simplest chorus of the last year, and …

Best-Coast-California-Nights-2015

Stream “California Nights” & Fall For Best Coast All Over Again

This may seem hard to believe, but Best Coast have not released an album since 2012. It’s not as if they have been hiding all this time, either. The duo has traveled the world at least once since their last record dropped, including dates at countless festivals around the globe. They also spent a lot of time finding a new sound, which they are now sharing with fans through the new single “California Nights.”

Taken from an album with the same name, which is set for release in early May, “California Nights” is a lush pop rock jam that takes …

Big-Sean-2015

Big Sean Stuns With “One Man Can Change The World”

With a week to go before Dark Sky Paradise hits, Big Sean has shared what may soon be considered a modern classic.

Built upon a steady piano accompaniment, “One Man Can Change The World” pairs Big Sean with Kanye West and John Legend for an ode to a child’s endless potential. Sean has always been one to speak of his ambition and how it lead him to turn his dreams into reality, but here he takes things to another level altogether. There’s always time spent paying tribute to Sean’s late grandmother, including a cell phone message. You can stream the …
