Passion Pit (feat. Juicy J) – Constant Conversations (Remix)

You read the title correctly. For some untold reason, indie rock band Passion Pit has linked up with Mr. Trippy himself, Juicy J, for the remix to popular track Constant Conversations. The original song appears off their 2012 album, Gossamer, and honestly the track should have remained that way. Read the rest of this entry »


Wolf, the Creator

Okay, I know that I’m pretty late covering these things, but didn’t really have time since I’ve been celebrating my birthday. However, for those of you who don’t know, Tyler, the Creator has finally released information (and quite a lot at once may I add) regarding his second studio album. Wolf will come complete with a nice 18 song track list, three rather unique album covers, and all is set to release on April 2.

Flog Gnaw.

I Will Not Be Covering Gucci Mane’s Trap God 2 Release

Sorry not sorry.

J Cole Releases Truly Yours EP

Although Miss America essentially went unnoticed, it should be noted that it was strictly used as a promo single. Not sure that buzz was actually gained from the single compared to the viral trailer, but after disappointing fans with his sophomore album, Born Sinner, suffering a pushback, Cole attempts to repair that damage with a collection of free songs.

Lets hope it does just that and the same hype for his debut album returns. Regardless, I’m pretty sure the album will be a good one! Read the rest of this entry »

James Blake Announces New Album

Hear ye! Hear ye! London producer, singer/songwriter James Blake has finally released information regarding his sophomore release. This is quite funny as I was just playing his self-titled debut out the other day at Starbucks and thought: “man, he really needs to come out with a second release.” Well, he is doing just that and has even graced listeners with an official single and music video.

It’s like Christmas all over again! Read the rest of this entry »

The-Dream Announces Album Title Change, Beyoncé & Kanye West

First and foremost, Terius “The-Dream” Nash, never gets his respect although many of the people bashing him are fans of pretty much all the artists he writes/produces for. But regardless, anyone who remembers that The-Dream was supposed to release his fourth album, The Love IV, can scratch that off their list. The new title pays homage to R. Kelly’s 12 Play as The-Dream respectively titles it Fourplay.

Justin Timberlake Releases New Single

Justin is wasting no time gearing up for his comeback. Fresh off his Grammy performance, Timberlake took to iTunes to release the second single off his upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience. Produced strictly by Timbaland, the single clocks in at just over 8 minutes long, which should put all the crying to sleep over his “lacking” track list count. Read here.

The album will also feature a deluxe edition that will be available exclusively via Target. The deluxe edition will feature two other songs titled Dress On and Body Count.

The album can now be pre-ordered via iTunes here and you get the second single for download that will go to your final purchase when the album is released March 19. But for now, check the 9th song on the album out below. The second half gets two thumbs up from this guy!


Drake Announces New Album Title

The Young Money Cash Money rapper hasn’t really “wowed” with previous album titles and his junior album doesn’t quite change that. Titled Nothing Was the Same, the album has spawned the first single Started From the Bottom. Honestly, I think this should have followed his debut Thank Me Later or replaced it. Seems like the album will influence a more hip-hop Drake instead of his 2011 release, Take Care, and it’s heavy R&B-esque vibe.

We all know why we love and hate Drake, but honestly the softer side of him keeps listeners wanting more. Reminiscent of his heavily popular sophomore mixtape So Far Gone, Take Care, which granted him the Best Rap Album award at tonight’s Grammys, wowed fans with a return to his emotional side. However, with an Over-sounding single, I don’t think Nothing Was the Same is the right move, but we will be patiently waiting to see.

No release date quite yet, but stay tuned for more info.


Kilo Kish – k+ (Mixtape)

Sorry guys, meant to post this earlier, but got caught up in class about Islam vs. Christianity. Actually a very interesting conversation, but besides the point, Kilo Kish makes a return. That is, her second official mixtape, k+, has been released and to a happy listener from over here might I add. Yeah yeah! Read the rest of this entry »
