Bey dawg dropped a new video last night for new single 7/11 and both the song and the vid are absolute foolishness…in the best way possible!!! Who doesn’t wanna spill alcohol with Bey, get that azz slapped by Bey, shake it off with Bey???
I love that the vid cost next to no dollas! Living!!! This bish is like Christmas morning, only with her you don’t know it’s coming.
I wonder how many vid-a-likes we’re going to see crop up!
How long has it been now since Azealia Banks has been releasing her debut album BROKE WITH EXPENSIVE TASTE? Well it’s finally here, she dropped it last night and it’s already in the UK iTunes top 10 and climbing. See the track listing and download link below.
This week’s Monday Mix is full of remixs and re-fixs. Featuring tracks from – Gorgon City, a new one from Wiz Khalifa, a Jess Glynne fave, Tokimonsta remix of Tinashe and Schoolboy Q, and a deep remix of James Blake fave Retrograde from DJ Shash’u!
Dizzee Rascal has dropped the teaser trailer for his new video “Couple of Stacks”, the teaser looks like a good old fashioned horror movie, and when I say old fashioned I mean late 80s, early 90s. Every thing is happy-go-lucky til the rubber-handed man shows up and puts the phone down!
November 16th sees the return of Wretch 32 with his brand new single ‘6 Words’ taken from his upcoming new album due early next year.
Hello! The first beat had us foot tapping, the second had the head and arms getting involved. Mashing the blissful hooks of Bipolar Sunshine and fast emotive raps of Goldlink of course is the absolute most. Bipolar Sunshine and producer Jazz Purple have put down another super catchy slice of soulful pop with DMV based Goldlink flowing oh so gracefully over the top. Listen to the track below!
Britain’s premier electronic music tastemaker Annie Mac returns with her definitive selection of the year’s biggest tracks; Annie Mac Presents 2014. If the mini mix teaser (below) is anything to go by, this one is a must!
