The best and brightest of this past week in music, as well as a throwback track! Hopefully you can bump these tracks on your way to work to brighten up your Monday mornings. This week we have new music from Jaden Smith, Martin Garrix, Vic Mensa and more!
As a gift to fans for reaching 10 million likes on Facebook, EMD superstar Martin Garrix (‘Animals’) released his new track (and video to go with it), titled ‘Forbidden Voices’. Check out the track, and fans in Chicago should be sure to catch Martin performing at this year’s Spring Awakening Music Festival.
Check out Vic Mensa’s second new track this year with Electronic musician Kaytranada, this time led by friend and SAVEMONEY affiliate Towkio, titled ‘Involved’. If you like this one, definitely be sure to look out for Towkio’s upcoming debut, titled .wav Theory, which is expecting a April release with confirmed executive production by The Social Experiment’s Peter Cottontale. Stream the track above and also be on the look out for Vic’s upcoming 2015 projects Street Lights (EP) and Traffic.
After releasing a lot of new and unexpected music in 2014, Jaden Smith has continued this trend in 2015 by taking to Twitter to share a link for his new EP and his new track and video, ‘4 My 1’, produced by Daniel D’artiste. The This Is The Album EP has three tracks and includes ‘4 My 1’, ‘Scarface’, and ‘Weekend In Atlantis’ (all produced by D’artiste). Check out ‘4 My 1’ above.
Last winter Norwegian producer Cashmere Cat and DJ Mustard started working on this track, which now is conveniently titled ‘Ice Rink’. Listen to the collaboration above and be sure to catch him on tour with Ariana Grande (kicking off this month).
This week’s throwback throwback review was Pretty Ricky’s debut album Bluestars, a very underrated album that still gets plays a decade later. Get nostalgic with one of its standout tracks, ‘Your Body’.
“Top down blue star tag, Ol’ master bear skin rugs in the jag. Spectac with the bad chick in the back, tryin ta beat it up like an Everlast punching bag.”
