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.
Imagine Dragons drops a powerful new track called Believer. Safe to assume this one is a solid warmup for their upcoming third studio album release. You’ll also be able to hear this one during the Superbowl as it will be featured on Nintendo Switch’s ad during the big game.
Syd aka “Syd Tha Kyd” (not to be confused with Sid the Kid) is previously known for being a member of the band The Internet who’s genre is classified as neo soul. Syd’s music had previously gone unnoticed to me because of her genre but this new single’s synth sounds and drum kicks brings it into our wheelhouse of music taste. Her debut solo album, Fin, is out today February 3.

I always enjoy seeing DJ/music producers who use their influence to promote up-and-coming artists. Ben Maxwell takes the new pop track by XYLØ and ever so gently twists it into the dance track he sees potential in. This one begs to be turned up on your sound system 🔊.
If trap/electronic isn’t your scene, the original track stands up on it’s own, the official music video below:

In December, Kid Cudi released his sixth album, Passion, Pain and Demon Slayin. One of the standout tracks that didn’t previously leak was By Design featuring the great Andre 3000. The album was hit or miss, with some solid tracks where he sounded like the classic Kid Cudi that made him rise to popularity, but then other tracks where he continues to mumble and do his annoying auto-tune “singing”. Check out this track and let us know what you think.
I know it’s been less than 2 weeks since we posted about Ed Sheeren – Shape of You (post updated with new Castle On The Hill music video released today) but this remix by BKAYE is worth it. Prior to this, BKAYE had several remixes over the last year on both Youtube and SoundCloud teetering on the million listen mark so keep an eye on them.
For #throwbackthursday we’ve got our latest addition in our In Case You Missed It series. We’re jumping back to June last year when Hippie Sabotage dropped this gem High Enough on SoundCloud, a “flip” (aka remix) of Halsey‘s 2015 smash hit Gasoline. Embedded below is an unofficial video by Nato Gogichashvili which has far surpassed the listen count on SoundCloud and now has over 8 million views. High Enough turned into their followup hit to when the Sacramento brothers first broke onto the music scene in 2014, when their Tove Lo – Habits (Stay High) Remix was picked up by Tove Lo as an official single on her Truth Serum (EP).
