No stranger to cross-genre creation, Guetta has a new collaboration with Nick Minaj and brought in Lil Wayne as well to make it a Young Money duo. For both Guetta and Minaj being in two different genres of music, it’s kind of surprising but this is the fourth single they’ve released together. Previous singles being Where Them Girls At (2007), Turn Me On (2012), and Hey Mama (2015). This track will almost certainly lead to another Hot 100 entry for Guetta and Minaj. Minaj’s verses definitely remind me of her “Beez in the Trap” style rapping. While Lil Wayne only gets a single verse, heavily auto-tuned, reminding us of his hit Lollipop, it definitely leaves us wishing he had another verse on here.
After a cryptic Instagram on Thursday morning, Kendrick unleashed a brand new track last night titled The Heart Part 4. This is a continuation of the long-running The Heart series and is the first solo music we’ve heard from the rapper since 2016’s untitled unmastered. On the new track he takes shots at Donald Trump and proclaims himself the best rapper alive. At the end of the song, he hints that a new album could be dropping as early as April.

Pitbull aka Mr. Worldwide aka Mr. 305 is back with another album, this one hilariously titled Climate Change. The pop hit maker’s album is loaded with guests including Flo Rida, J-Lo, Enrique Iglesias, and Robin Thicke. Better on Me is one of the many dance songs that could be another radio hit. Feel free to check out the full album.
Nicki Minaj dropped a Remy Ma diss track featuring Drake and Lil Wayne on Friday. It was a rare Young Money reunion for the trio and is definitely more of a hit track than a diss track as it has already reached number one on iTunes in less than 24 hours. The track will apparently be on Nicki’s new album coming out later this year.
Jason Derulo drops a banging new single called Swalla feature two rap stars in Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign. This song is expected to be on an upcoming Derulo project. Derulo stated on the Grammy’s red carpet that there’s “nothing that sounds like it” on the radio right now. Do you agree?
It’s definitely a unique sound, we are loving the beat and both guest features do a great job on the track.
Calvin Harris has been teasing this track for awhile now on his social media and thankfully he has released “Slide” to the masses. The track features Frank Ocean and Migos. The track marks the first new piece of music from Ocean since the release of his album Blonde last year, while 2017 is shaping up to be the year of Migos. The single is expected to be on Harris’ upcoming album due out later this year. It’s a pretty chill and funky vibe but we think it definitely has hit potential – what do y’all think?
The Chainsmokers have recruited Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for their newest single titled Something Just Like This. This song has just leaked online and looks like it will be from the Chainsmokers’ debut LP, Memories…Do Not Open. Can’t wait for this album and it’s a pretty great tune!

After weeks (maybe months) of teasing, Linkin Park finally releases their debut single “Heavy” from their seventh studio album, One More Light. The new album will be released on May 19. The new single features guest vocals from Gold hitmaker Kiiara. The band has once again switched their style for the new album. Guest female vocals is something rare for LP, but this song has a great feel to it and is definitely a mainstream radio and pop friendly song, so it should be a huge hit. It’s a different sound, but we couldn’t be more excited for new music and a new album from Linkin Park!
DJ Khaled dropped a surprise track featuring Queen B and Jay right after the Grammy awards on Sunday night. The song is the first single off Khaled’s upcoming album. This is the first song the couple has appeared on together since 2013’s Drunk In Love. The cover art for the song also features Khaled’s son Ashad all dressed up.

Vice’s music channel Noisey just released Atlanta 2 on YouTube; the full 45 minute documentary where they explore the origins of the Trap music scene. They basically get the whitest-looking interviewers to interview the rappers, which somehow makes it even more entertaining. They interview Migos, Young Thug and several others. If you haven’t watched the first series from 2015 which was 10 episodes (each roughly 10 minutes long) you can watch the entire Noisey Atlanta Series 1 on Youtube. The first season included interviews with Gucci Mane, Young Jeezy, 2 Chains and many more.
