Fire Tunes Of The Day Featuring The Weeknd, Tinashe, Mike Will Made It, Ne-Yo, Smokepurpp and Murda Beatz, Preme & Octavian

With all the new music dropping today, it’s only right that I run through the best drops over the past week. Enjoy the fire below

The Weeknd – Wasted Times

The Weeknd shocked fans with the release of his latest EP My Dear Melancholy last week Friday & it took me right back to Trilogy Abel vibes,. Hopefully  he continues releasing music in this vein cause it’s fucking incredible. The 6 track EP was clearly motivated by ex relationships, most notably Selena Gomez, who I never assumed to have the sauce that strongly, but the EP boderline made me change my mind on that opinion. It’s a beautiful body of work and the standouts in my opinion are Call Out My Name & today’s featured tune Wasted Times, which I’ve been absolutely obsessed with since it dropped. Listen to the EP here and listen to the fire tune below

 

Tinashe – Me So Bad Ft. Ty Dolla $ign & French Montana

It’s been over 2 years since Tinashe announced the release of Joyride but it looks like the album will finally drop next week, which is rather exciting. I’ve been a fan of the LA native since she released her self-written mixtapes Reverie & Black Water back in 2012 and 2013 respectively. She gained mainstream clout with 2013’s 2 On featuring Schoolboy Q but it’s always been clear that she’s destined for great things. I noticed a change in her music output once she singed to RCA Records, which is expected as you get more label involvement in your recording process. However, I have high expectations for Joyride when it drops next week, especially after listening to Me So Bad featuring Ty Dolla $ign & French Montana, which is a certified banger. This album has been a long time coming,  so make sure you check it out next week but enjoy her latest single in the meantime below

 

 

Mike Will Made It – Aries (YuGo) Part 2 Ft. Rae Sremmurd, Pharrell, Quavo & Big Sean

Super producer Mike Will Made It premiered the remix of his Ransom 2 hosted single Aries last week featuring Rae Sremmurd, Pharrell, Quavo & Big Sean and it’s a super banger to say the least. The USP of this banger lies in the infectious hook vocalised by music legend Pharrell and Lord knows I’m on my way to being the nigga with the bag! Enjoy the banger below

 

 

Ne-Yo – Push Back Ft. Bebe Rexha & Stefflon Don

Ne-Yo released his latest single in forever last week & it’s a smash in all honesty. Yes, it’s very pop-oriented but a banger is a banger and that is exactly what Push Back is. Bebe Rexha & the UK’s Stefflon Don perfectly complemented the R&B legend on this record. Peep the tune below

 

Smokepurpp & Murda Beatz – Do Not Disturb Ft. Offset & Lil Yatchy

Florida rapper Smokepurpp & super producer Murda Beatz released a joint single last week featuring Quality Control’s Lil Yachty & Offset. The result is a banger and a half, which I’ve struggled to get out of my head, especially the hook. Listen to the banger below

 

Preme – Hot Boy Ft. Lil Wayne

Canadian artist & OVO signee Preme formerly known as P. Reign, released his first single in over a year last week titled Hot Boy featuring one of the GOATs Weezy and it’s a heater! Listen to the fire below

 

 

Octavian – Hands

London rapper & new wave connoisseur Octavian released his latest single Hands last week Friday to rave reviews within the UK scene. Octavian’s a breath of fresh air with his unique take on rap, which blends in elements of dance and house music like nothing I’ve previously heard. After gaining acclaim from his debut single Party Herethe young MC now has the eyes of the world on him and on further evidence, we’ll be doing just that going forward. He’s straight up special and Hands is a straight up banger. Peep the record and visuals below
