[Chill] Chrisette Michelle – Charades ft 2 Chainz

Chrisette Michelle has coined the title of this modern-day pre- and post-break-up songstress in the game. From her debut smash hit “Be Ok” to her equally successful single “Epiphany(I’m Leaving)” ft Drake, her repertoire of hits is very reminiscent of 90′s Mary J.Blige R&B with a more classic jazz/hip-hop sound. With her latest single “Charades”, she croons about the hesistation to get to know someone on a romantic level after being burned in the past. The Wizzy Wow produced track gives off a mellow vibe with some synth beats and soft, vulnerable vocals from the songstress. Unexpectedly, 2 Chainz joins the singer as the dude whose intentions are in question. The single can be heard on Michelle’s latest free mixtape An Audiovisual Presentation of Audrey Hepburn, available here.

[Mega Playlist] Ultra 2013 Preview

Dillon Francis – Bootleg Fireworks (The Rebirth) [Trap VIP]

Yes you are reading correctly, Dillon Francis dropped a Trap VIP of his massive tune “Bootleg Fireworks”. This was ripped from Rinse FM yesterday, and features an incredible re-work of an already amazing track, “Bootleg Fireworks”. We covered Dillon’s first Rebirth of “Masta Blasta” and this one might be even more hectic. Featuring some incredible chopping and splicing, tweaking this massive track in all the right ways. No new on the release date yet, Cheers.

[Hip-Hop] Joey Bada$$ – Unorthodox (Prod. DJ Premier)

Mountain Dew’s Green Label Sound has brought together a dream duo with Joey Bada$$ and DJ Premier. With Joey’s Brooklyn twang and old school flow over Premo’s patented spins, it feels like the track was pulled straight out of 1995 (the year he was born in case you wanted a fun fact). As he’s been doing for the past few months, the young New Yorker delivers lyrical complexity far beyond his years, leaving us to wonder just how potent he can be as an emcee.

[NEW] Iron and Wine – Lovers’ Revolution

Sam Beam, aka Iron and Wine, has been known for his delicate folk rock and heart-wrenching tales — my personal LP favorites being 2002′s The Creek Drank The Cradle and and 2004′s Our Endless Numbered Days — nearly leading and inspiring that niche corner of music for good chunks of time. But on his newest song, “Lovers’ Revolution,” he shifts away from that sound, instead dabbling in brass-heavy arrangements perfect for a free-form night at the local jazz club. It’s an interesting change, and one that longtime fans might have to get used to, but it shows that Beam hasn’t lost one drop of that creative blood that propelled his career in the first place. Listen in below.

Lovers Revolution

Iron and Wine’s fifth album, Ghost on Ghost, comes out April 16th on Nonesuch Records.
