And it is that time again! Once again, we are at the beginning of the week and it is time for me to bring some new music your way!
That being said, check out this new music:
Charlie XCX rolls out her new single “Break the Rules”.
Recently, Charli XCX unveiled her newest single “Break the Rules”. The new track serves to be a preview into the singer/songwriter’s upcoming, sophomore album (which will be titled Sucker). The track features the same kind of energy that made Charlie XCX’s collaboration with Iggy Azalea on “Fancy” so popular (though I absolutely detest that song, I agree that Charlie XCX was definitely the best part of it).
You can check out the single below:
Sucker will be hitting stores near you on October 21.
J. Cole Pays Tribute to Michael Brown in “Be Free”.
It’s been a week (and counting) since the death of Michael Brown brought a spotlight to Ferguson, Missouri and shined a light on some very real and present racial tensions in America. In addition to that, it has also shined a light on police brutality and the fact that police forces across the US are getting increasingly militarized, (which is something that should be a concern in itself).
That being said, rapper and artist J. Cole recently released a new song, “Be Free” as his own tribute to the slain teen (he also traveled to Ferguson to pay his respects). In the song, J. Cole doesn’t do as much rapping, but rather approaches the track in a “spoken word” type of way.
You can listen to the somber track below:
The tragedy also inspired the artist to tweet for the first time in awhile:
Cole also goes on to express his discontent with the entire situation on his blog, Dreamvillain:
There was a time in my life when I gave a f-ck. Every chance I got I was screaming about it. I was younger. It’s so easy to try to save the world when you’re in college. You got nothing but time and no responsibility. But soon life hits you. No more dorms, no more meal plan, no more refund check. N—a need a job. N—a got rent. Got car note. Cable bill. Girlfriend moves in and becomes wife. Baby on the way. Career advances. Instagram is poppin. Lebron leaves Miami. LIFE HITS. We become distracted. We become numb. I became numb. But not anymore. That coulda been me, easily. It could have been my best friend. I’m tired of being desensitized to the murder of black men. I don’t give a f-ck if it’s by police or peers. This shit is not normal.
I made a song. This is how we feel.
Ed Sheeran and Rick Ross team up for “Don’t” Remix.
As weird as it sounds, the two artists recently teamed up to remix Ed Sheeran’s track “Don’t”. The track comes from Sheeran’s latest album X and also allegedly continues to throw shade at Sheeran’s ex, Ellie Goulding.
You can check out the new remix below:
