[Hip-Hop] Sahtyre – Prince Thunder

Prince Thunder

LA-based rapper Sahtyre first surfaced last April with his debut mixtape, LSD (Prelude), which featured electronic production largely courtesy ninja-favorites Hippie Sabotage accompanied by gritty, yet thoughtful, rhymes. After being relatively quite for the last few months, the talented emcee dropped off an an enormous new song a couple days ago.

“Prince Thunder” employs a haunting sample of Prince‘s “Thunder” in tandem with a heavy, hypnotizing backdrop. Sahtyre showcases his quick flow, and insightful lyricism, leaving the listener ready for another project, which we hope is on the way. This will do just fine, though, to hold us over in the meantime.

[Funk] Prince – Da Burgeoisie

Da Burgeoisie

Hit-maker and legendary musician Prince takes the time to drop an interesting post-breakup anthem. The singer has always been innovative and not afraid to push the boundaries and this track shows his eccentricity.  The new single “Da Burgeoisie” has the artist crooning about being dumped, but unlike any other generic end to a relationship, he sings about his former babe leaving him for the company of another woman. Sadly, this thought isn’t exactly comforting nor does it help stroke to a man’s ego. Although sad, the artist still keeps it funky and fresh with smooth guitar rips and drum work. Take a listen to the new song above.

[New] Jessie Ware – 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.
