Petite Meller’s “Baby Love” Video Reminds Us Of Wes Anderson

We love great pop music around UTG, but truth be told coming across that kind of material is often a near impossible task. There is so much disposable music made for clubs and radio today that sifting through long enough to find something worthy of more than five replays is often a daunting proposition. Fortunately for you, such work is what we love to do, and today we have yet another promising young act to share.

Petite Meller is a name many don’t know yet, but it is only a matter of time before her latest single, “Baby Love,” finds …

Meek Mill Shares “B-Boy” Video Featuring Big Sean & A$AP Ferg

Having dropped a number of freestyles in celebration of his release from incarceration earlier this year, Meek Mill cements his return to the top of the rap echelon with the official video for “B-Boy.”

Oh, you haven’t heard “B-Boy”? That isn’t hard to understand seeing as the song was quietly released at the beginning of the week. Initially we didn’t understand this marketing move, but now that a video has been revealed everything is starting to make sense. “B-Boy” bangs without any additional help, but the video certainly takes the whole affair to a new level. It’s a 90s style …

Big Sean Drops “Blessings” Featuring Drake & Kanye West

Detroit native Big Sean recently announced plans to title his new album Dark Sky Paradise, and late last night he revealed the album’s latest single. The song, which features appearances from both Drake and Kanye West is titled “Blessings.” You can stream the track, in full at the end of this post.

Any time three powerhouse rappers get on a track together there is bound to be some debate over who rode the beat best, and anyone familiar with Big Sean’s catalog knows his guests often bring the heat (Kendrick‘s “Control” verse proved that). Sean holds his …

UTG PREMIERE: Pete RG – “Let It All Go” (Lyric Video)

We are addicted to new music. I know that sounds cute and/or akin to something a teenager who just discovered that music exists beyond the radio, but it’s absolutely true. We spend hours every week sifting through the unknown talents of the world, and every so often we find one we cannot deny. This week that talent is Pete RG, and today we have a killer lyric video to share with all of you.

If you are not familiar with the work of Pete RG yet, don’t fret. His talent is one the world is still very much discovering, and …

Rocky Votolato Shares “The Hereafter”

Just a short time after announcing his decision to sign with No Sleep Records, Rocky Votolato has released the first single off his highly-anticipated new album.

Premiering on Stereogum earlier today, “The Hereafter” is a song that could only be written by someone whose led a truly interesting life. It oozes with a lifetime’s worth of experience having been boiled down to a four-minute song in the best possible way, with images of broken teeth, scraped hands, and weary eyes littered throughout. If Rocky were to try and encapsulate his career with a single song, this would no doubt be …

Kanye West Drops “Only One” Video

Kanye West has shared two new songs so far in 2015, and both have showcased surprisingly new sides of his dynamic persona. One of those songs now has a video, and earlier this week Ellen helped Yeezus share those visuals with the world.

It’s hard to believe anyone who cares about Kanye West has yet to hear “Only One.” The song, which was released at the the top of the new year, is written by West from the perspective of his deceased mother. It’s a ballad of sorts, with Beatles member Paul McCartney playing keys to accompany Kanye’s soft croon. …

Death Cab for Cutie Release “Black Sun” Lyric Video, Announce Tour

Death Cab For Cutie have shared the lyric video for “Black Sun,” the first single off their highly-anticipated new album, Kintsugi, and also the first track to surface from the band since the departure of longtime guitarist, Chris Walla.

It’s hard to go into a new song from someone like Death Cab For Cutie without having some type of expectation for the material on deck. Death Cab have carved a beautifully dynamic niche for themselves in the world of music up to this point, and “Black Sun” certainly does not disappoint. That said, it also doesn’t sound all that …

UTG PREMIERE: Marco Featuring Keano Spitta – “WITIT”

We have been featuring a lot of new talent as of late, but the amount of fresh hip-hop appearing on UTG has admittedly been low. We aim to change that this afternoon, however, and we’ve recruited some of our favorite young talents to help make that happen.

Kicking off 2015 with a bang, WFFW member Marco is back at it with the uptempo ride-out anthem titled “WITIT.” This is the third single from his anticipated mixtape, “$tudio Night$,” and in our opinion it’s one of his best tracks to date. Produced by Tay on the Beat, the song features Marco …

Motley Crue Stream Final Single (Ever), “All Bad Things”

Motley Crue made headlines earlier this week when they revealed a slew of new tour dates that will extend their final tour as a band until New Year’s Eve 2015. Last night, they took the hype surrounding their final bow one step further by sharing the video for their final single ever. Much to our surprise, it kind of rocks.

“All Bad Things” is a track born out of the singles that made Motley Crue a household name. It’s a fun, riff-heavy rock thrill ride that boasts a catchy chorus even your grandmother could learn in a single refrain. On …

Meek Mill Drops “Monster” & Reaffirms His Hip-Hop Dominance

Meek Mill spent a good portion of 2014 incarcerated, and it was because of that time away that his long-awaited Sophomore album was pushed from September to the new year. We still don’t know when Dreams Worth More Than Money will arrive, but late last night we got a new track that has put the entire rap community on its head.

“Monster” is the full-length version of “The Get Back,” a freestyle that surfaced earlier in the month. The track finds Meek Mill going in over a Jahill Beats production with the wit, speed, and intelligence that has become his …

Young Thug And Rich Homie Quan Collaborate On “In The Game”

I’m starting to believe we’re not allowed to move from one week to the next unless Rich Homie Quan and/or Young Thug share new material. The two Atlanta natives, both of whom have been on the radar of every urban music writer for well over a year, have continued their long-running streak of sharing new material by dropping a collaborative effort titled “In The Game.”

You know how this works by now: Thugga Thugga and Rich Homie Quan seem to spend every minute of free time working on new material, and with each passing week one or three tracks find …

A$AP Rocky Drops “Pretty Flacko 2″

Almost exactly two years have passed since A$AP Rocky turned hip-hop upside down with the release of Live.Long.Asap. Rocky’s output has been slacking over the last year or so, but last night he welcomed the new year by providing a sneak peak at what he’s got in store for fans in 2015.

“Pretty Flacko 2″ plays like a trailer for whatever album/mixtape the A$AP Mob ringleader is currently preparing to share with the world. The two-minute track features bars on bars on bars, all delivered through Rocky’s signature rhyme-heavy flow. You can stream the song below:…
