Music: Luke James – Stay With Me (Sam Smith Cover)

Grammy-nominated and Beyoncé-approved soul star, Luke James knew full damn well that a cover of Sam Smith’s R&B hit “Stay With Me,” was going to give me life! He knew it! The New Orleans singer has his own single “Options,” on iTunes now and you can pre-order his self-titled debut coming later this year. [...]

Music: SOPHIE – Hard

Music: SOPHIE – Hard

UK producer SOPHIE released his record “Lemonade” this past week and today I was blessed with the full version of the B-side track, “Hard.” Here we basically a high-energy electronic frenzy with a killer bass and no clear direction. It feels like what would happen if Sonic the Hedgehog threw a party at Ultra Music [...]

Music: Laura Mvula – Make Me Lovely (w/ The Metropole Orkest.)

Soul musician, Laura Mvula, has been shining over the past year with her brilliant debut album, Sing to the Moon. She easily dove right into my heart joining some other favorites including Erykah Badu, Shingai Shoniwa and Ella Fitzgerald. In March, the British singer-songwriter re-recorded Sing to the Moon with all 52 members of the Metropole Orchestra. The [...]

Music: Jon Bellion – Munny Right

Music: Jon Bellion – Munny Right

Jon Bellion has been one of my favorite (relatively) new artists ever since lending his pen to Eminem and Rihanna’s “Monster.” Well that particular song didn’t really move me, but his own album, The Separation, is superb. I have loads of respect for artists that can blend genres without it feeling forced or disingenuous. Jon [...]

Music: Nyemiah Supreme – No Questions (feat. K Camp)

It’s been a pretty great week for women in Hip-Hop. Nicki Minaj has appeared on two huge records, including an official remix to Beyoncé’s “Flawless,” Azealia Banks released a long-awaited new single and Remy Ma has been released from prison and also dropped new heat. Now my girl, Nyemiah Supreme, has given fans the full [...]

Music: Brandy + India Shawn – Magic (Coldplay Cover)

Music: Brandy + India Shawn – Magic (Coldplay Cover)

My ears were doubly blessed this week when R&B queens Brandy and India Shawn both dropped covers to Coldplay’s Ghost Stories gem, “Magic.” A perfectly synthy record complimented by smooth vocals from both ladies. It’s great to hear Brandy on a new track, even if it is a cover. Hopefully another single can follow soon [...]

Music: Jazmine Sullivan – Dumb (feat. Meek Mill)

Here we go, people! Today officially marks the day of Jazmine Sullivan’s musical return with the release of her new single, “Dumb.” The singer-songwriter teams up with her fellow Philly star, Meek Mill, for this seething record. The production here is wonderful and the vocals are everything I needed. I’ll definitely have my player on [...]

The Intros: Saint – Tamagotchi Remix (feat. Dai Burger)

The Intros: Saint – Tamagotchi Remix (feat. Dai Burger)

In further celebration of #FreakThatShitFriday, I’d like to give special attention to another intro song from The Read. This aggressive track is called “Tamagotchi” and it comes from LA-based DJ/producer, Saint. The heavy bass, perfectly timed snaps and goon ass “aye” chants are enough to make DJ Mustard shed a tear. Add in the extra-cocky rhymes [...]

Music: Naughty Boy – La La La (feat. Sam Smith) [Tim Dolla & K Millz Remix]

By now you may have heard British DJ/producer Naughty Boy’s single “La La La” which features vocals by Sam Smith. However with today being #FreakThatShitFriday, it’s only right to do something special for my fellow twerkers. DJs Tim Dolla and K Millz have added some ass-shaking appeal to this smooth pop tune, so all of [...]

Music: Allie X – BITCH

Music: Allie X – BITCH

Allie X is still a bit of a mystery to me, but I’m sure that I like the few tracks she’s got out right now. The Toronta/LA singer-songwriter released a synthy new tune simply titled “Bitch” last week, and it has stuck to me since. I don’t find it as strong as the formerly released [...]
