The Weeknd‘s been posting teasers left and right to promote his upcoming compilation album, Trilogy, which will feature some of the spectacular songs made famous over the course of his mixtape series last year, along with some new treatd. Abel does not miss a beat on this brand new cut, bringing that same sultry voice and raw passion to his lyrics that should be all too familiar to his fans by now. While this particular song was not included on the tracklist for Trilogy, chances are that it’ll find its way into our hands sometime soon. In the meantime, make sure you pre-order Trilogy before it drops on November 13th.
After the recent announcement of his sophomore album, Hall of Fame: Memoirs of a Detroit Player, Big Sean decided to commemorate the declaration by dropping the album’s first single. With a tropical-trill vibe resonating throughout, Big Sean flaunts his newfound wealth and explains how he plans to spend it all, presumably while on fancy island resorts in Hawaii. Sean decides to take some time to recognize his haters on the track as well, dedicating the song’s chorus to all of his enemies and ex-girls. All and all, “Guap” is a pretty good party track and should help provide some warmth in the cold months to come.
On the other side of the coin, we have what may be another leak from Big Sean’s new album in “She” featuring former G.O.O.D. music associate Common, crafted by super-producer, No I.D, the mastermind behind the instrumentals for much of his debut.On this track, Sean enters some unfamiliar territory discussing the subject of fathering an illegitimate child. “She” is a bit more serious than what you’d normally expect from the young Detroit legend, but it’s a refreshing change of pace and step towards maturity as a musician for the young Big Sean.
Enjoy some quality hip-hop below and look out for his album, which will hit stores December 18th. With these strong releases, Big Sean’s second album might be shaping up to be something real special.

Having already sprinkled his glitchy, ambient magic over Bon Iver’s “Holocene”, Berlin based producer Kyson backs up the acclaimed remix with his own Blackstone EP, which hits record stores on October 29th via Moodgadget Records. The latest track to emerge from the EP, “Ocean Tides” sees Kyson’s melancholic vocals wash over a reflective soundscape that ebbs and flows with delicate piano lines and warm electronic textures.
Young UK electronic artist Louisa Rose Allen, who performs under the moniker Foxes, has been turning heads ever since dropping her debut LP Youth over a year ago and her Warrior EP just this past summer. Recently, she lent her bright vocals to “Clarity” a track by Music Ninja fave Zedd. Here, her latest single “Echo” gets tapped for remix treatment by Los Angeles-based producers FIXYN. It builds up, drops, pummels and twists in all the right places, like a sweet, earth-shattering remix should. It ain’t Friday yet, but with this blastin’ in the background, it sure feels like it. Download below!
When Bassnectar dropped this the other night at Bill Grahm Civic in San Francisco, everyone was raging face. The drop in this insane remix has a ground shaking bass line that rumbled throughout the entire venue. Hot off his releases of his Freestyle EP, Lorin doesn’t let up on this one, featuring a similar sound design to his track “Hexes” feat. Chino Moreno. This tune has all sorts of funky wobbles and synths sprinkled throughout and mixed with some ridiculous samples. The end result is pure mayhem, so turn up the volume. Cheers.
Lately you might’ve noticed a lot of Chad Valley chatter here on The Music Ninja, and that’s because the synth pop artist, who tore up CMJ last week and whose debut album Young Hunger comes out next Tuesday via Cascine Records, is pretty darn good at what he does. We brought you this single “Fall 4 U” feat. Glasser back in August and today we present its video directed by Franklyn Banks.
