Gold - M.I.A.

M.I.A. teams up with the Dutch DJ team, Partysquad for this new sound. It’s everything and more that we could expect from the electronic rave rapper: horns, whistles, and fast verses.

Turn Up: Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj - Bang Bang

Yesterday, powerhouses Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj released the audio for their collaboration “Bang Bang.”

The song has been teased for awhile. In an interview we posted earlier this month, Savan Kotecha, mentioned the collaboration and the Moulin Rouge/Lady Marmalade vibe he was going for. The lady combine in a tour-de-force, triumvirate— three powerhouse vocalists whose harmonies are just as sick as their solos. 

What I love about the song is how, like Moulin Rouge, it drips in modern day nostalgia. The back beat reminds you of 1960s go-go soul, there’s a vibe of Lauryn Hill’s Miseducation but it fully embraces our current era of pop-rap. What emerges is a head-bopping-bad-ass-bitches anthem.

Beggin For Thread - BANKS

BANKS comes out swinging with this single, leading up to her first album, Goddess. Her voice is smoky and her music is almost reminiscent of Fiona Apple, but with a bit more energy in her step. Her lyrics and voice leave her exposed and vulnerable, and that chorus will leave you bobbing your head all day as you leave the song on repeat.

We think BANKS will be big, so keep an eye out for her. She’s dark and emotional, but she takes all of this brooding material inside her and fashions a beautiful song with depth. Her album is intended to drop September 5th, 2014. For additional fun, check out “Drowning.”
