Love Hate Thing Ft. Sam Dew
Wale is steady on his grind for his upcoming third solo album The Gifted. While his infectious single “Bad” is still climbing the charts and staying on constant rotation on the radio, he takes to the webs this week to release a new track “LoveHate Thing”. The MMG rapper returns to the mellow vibe as he spits over a soulful Dew, Stokley, and Tone P. beat. Speaking on the trials of making it big and losing the ones you grew up with in your hometown to jealousy, Wale continues to show his vulnerable side with this latest release. This track is definitely another solid effort from the DC native and is sure to get him some placement on the charts. Wale’s The Gifted is set to drop on June 25th.

Young Niggas (feat. Juicy J)
Underground phenom Casey Veggies comes through this week with a new head banging, street-single titled “Young Niggas”. The new tune sounds very raw and Veggies takes to the mic to rep for the young generation on their grind.

The End is Near feat. Mac Miller
West coast emcee Ab-Soul has been on his grind lately with some dope new material. Taking to the inter webs today, he drops off a new musical gem titled “The End is Near”. Over this Larry Fisherman production, Soul delivers some intricate and thought provoking rhymes that will definitely have you hitting the replay button to process what he is exactly talking about. Bringing in Mac Miller for a quick but subtle verse, this TDE chill track has a hint of nostalgic old school rap.
Love Thy Will Be Done
Rising British songstress Jessie Ware takes listeners back in time with her latest single “Love…Thy Will Be Done”. The throwback track is a modern re-make of Martika‘s early 90′s hit of the same name (co-written by Prince). Driven by a subtle beat of synth rhythms, light guitars, and soft drums, this smooth tune allows the singer/songwriter to showcase the range of her vocal abilities. What could easily be mistaken as a “best of the 80s/90′s” romance tune, is given a new life with Ware’s impressively soothing vocals. Fans can hear more of her music on her excellent debut album, Devotion.
It has been sometime since we heard some new material from the eccentric artist Kelis, but today she breaks her musical silence and drops her latest single titled “Call on Me”. After a brief romance with electronic and heavy synth beats on her last album, Fleshtone, the talented singer experiments with a more organic sound on the TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek’s production. With some funky rhythms, horn and drum driven beat, Kelis brings some old school feel with a modern touch. Her melodic but varying vocals find a home on this smooth beat. Not known whether this is going to be the lead single of any upcoming effort, but take a listen to the upbeat track below.
