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).

I stumbled across this song on one of Spotify’s playlists last month and it’s stuck with me (I blame the piano bit in the chorus). Tucker is from LA and is preparing to release an EP titled All In soon. Just Wanna hit 1 million plays in under two months on Spotify. Check out the tune below and let us know if you agree that Tate Tucker is gonna blow up in 2017.

 

We didn’t get a post out in time for Black Beatles when it came out Sept 2016, which is now at a crazy 300+ million views on Youtube, so we’re making sure we’ve got Rae Sremmund’s follow up hit on here. 2016 was a breakout year for the two brothers, but before Black Beatles their previous 2 singles Now That I Know (too slow) and Shake it Fast (terrible video) were not nearly as good, here’s hoping they continues on this trend.

Krewella – Team

by

I’ve found Krewella have been hit or miss ever since their smash hit Alive back in 2013. They have explored different sounds and styles but seem to have found another great track with the release of Team. They are back in the studio working on new music for a potential new album. Hopefully it has more of the same sound as this single, we are really digging it.

 

DJ Snake’s new video The Half is riding off the success of his last month hit Let Me Love You ft. Justin Bieber. Previous to that, you probably recognize the french producer most famously for his hit with Lil Jon – Turn Down for WhatThe Half is DJ Snake’s 4th official single off his debut album Encore.

We can’t really consider this one as a “before the charts” post, but we still felt it was worthy of a write-up. Migos has the number one song on the Billboard top 100 charts this week with Bad and Bougie. The hype for the group and song has been helped by a ton of memes and a recent shoutout by Donald Glover at the Golden Globes who called Migos the “Beatles of our generation”. Their upcoming album Culture is set to drop on January 27th.

Today has been termed “Blue Monday” since it is the most depressing day of the year, so we couldn’t think of a better song to post for today. Hopefully this one gets you bobbing your head or puts a smile on your face 🙂

 

We are definitely late posting this one, but it’s still worthy of a post. Redbone is one of the standout tracks from Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino’s third studio album Awaken My Love! The whole album is a different experience and Gambino doesn’t rap at all on the whole album. It has a very jazz/funk/soul vibe to it, but is catchy as hell. Glover had a fantastic 2016 with his award winning show Atlanta on FX coming out to very positive reviews and then the release of this album. 2017 should be another big year for the multi-talented artist.

 

The Chainsmokers are back with another single, this time sans another artist lending their vocal talents. This one is a bit slower than their last few hits, but it is still catchy as hell and will be sure to blow up the radio across the world. Hit up the comments and let us know what you think of this one.

 

After taking a year off, Ed Sheeran is back with two new tracks from his upcoming album. After much teasing on social media he drops off Shape of You and Castle On The Hill. We definitely prefer the catchier Shape of You of the two releases and these songs are already starting to blow up on the radio across the world. 2017 should be a big year for Ed Sheeran!

 

 

Welcome back, it’s 2017! It’s kind of surprising but this is the first song on BTC from both Major Lazer and Showtek. “Believer” is a major (pun intended) release from Major Lazer’s upcoming album for January 2017 titled “Music Is The Weapon”. The single will be riding on the curtails of the radio overkill single off the album Cold Water (feat. Justin Bieber & MØ). The Jamaican-flavored beats should be catching on in the clubs for some time to come. There’s an official video, but although there’s a lot of meaning behind it there’s not much to it, so we decided to embed the the SoundcCoud below to focus on the song.
