This week sees releases from Jason Derulo, Billie Eilish, DJ Khaled, and more
This week, we have a selection of dope new music. It ranges from Hip Hop, Pop, to House, and all over. We cover the bases with artists like Smino, Jason Derulo, Trez Bell, and DJ Khaled. Give these singles a listen this weekend.
Smino – MLK DR
Kal Banx and Phoelix cook up a nice Hip Hop jam for Smino called “MLK DR.” Released in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, he shares that unique swag that only he can deliver. “I just seen a Martian right on Martin Luther King,” he raps.
Make sure you check out the new music video animated by Oliver Fredericksen with creative direction from Brick & Smino.
Macklemore – “Trump’s Over Freestyle”
Macklemore is still tired of your Ex-President and he gives him an ill final goodbye on “Trump’s Over Freestyle.” He doesn’t hold back as we usher in a new White House administration.
Jason Derulo – Lifestyle ft. Adam Levine
Jason Derulo and Adam Levine link up for “Lifestyle.” He pulls out all the dance moves for the music video. The song features Adam Levine, but he does not appear in the video.
S/o to Rice N’ Peas on this beat. The production has a lot of character. It’s pretty chill up until the boom of the hook. The brass sounds and ear candy throughout give it a theatrical appeal that fits Jason’s style well.
Silk City & Ellie Goulding – New Love ft. Diplo & Mark Ronson
Silk City is a duo made up of music producers Mark Ronson and Diplo. They collaborate with Ellie Goulding for “New Love.” Ellie is the queen of this scene with her shining vocals and stage presence. Shoutout to the essential workers.
Billie Eilish & ROSALÍA – Lo Vas A Olvidar
We got a slow-burning, bilingual jam on “Lo Vas A Olvidar.” Billie Eilish & ROSALÍA connect for this song which features in the episode “Part 2: Jules” of Euphoria.
Trez Bell – No Fun
Bounce Gvng’s Trez Bell drops off a killer R&B joint on “No Fun.” This Alyx directed music video is also one of the best independent visuals I’ve seen in a while.
Fat Joe, DJ Khaled, Amorphous – Sunshine (The Light)
A big shoutout to Bounce Gvng’s Shawn Hibbler who additional drums and bass to give the song it’s well rounded low end. “Shoutout to Cool. He could have done it on his own, but he called on me,” Shawn states.
