The best and brightest of this past week in music, as well as a throwback track! Hopefully you can bump these on the way to work to brighten up your Monday mornings.
Fans who tuned-in to The Colbert Report this week were given a treat as Kendrick Lamar performed a never-before-heard and untitled track. While this one may not be as radio friendly as his recent single ‘i’, this powerful performance should get any rap fan excited for Kendrick’s upcoming sophomore album. Still no word as to when we can expect the project, but certainly be on the look out real soon. Check out a rip of the audio above.
With just a few days until Christmas, Miguel has given fans a new three-song EP. The project includes the songs ‘nwa’ featuring the legendary MC Kurupt, ‘hollywood dreams’ and ‘coffee’, which was partly leaked earlier this year. Check out the EP’s most anticipated track, ‘coffee’.
Listen to Chief Keef’s new song ‘Nobody’ featuring Kanye West. The ’12 Million’ produced track features auto-tuned background vocals from Kanye and may have a familiar sounding beat for many hip-hop fans. The track, which samples Willie Hutch’s ‘Brother’s Gonna Work It Out’, sounds very similar to another recent Chicago rap track which samples the Hutch song in almost the same way, Chance The Rapper’s ‘Lost’.
‘Swerve’, appearing ILOVEMAKONNEN’s new self titled OVO released EP, may be the song ILOVEMAKONNEN needs. While enjoying his newfound success by way of a hit single (and powerful Drake stimulus), Makonnen has already expressed that he wants recognition for other songs. ‘Swerve’ is already getting a great response from fans. Hear it for yourself above.
If Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny’s Space Jam wasn’t part of your childhood, you are either too young or something is wrong with you. Not only did the movie deliver on the silver screen, but it provided a great soundtrack as well. Part of that great soundtrack is R. Kelly’s arguably biggest hit “I Believe I Can Fly”. Check out the video below!
