The Weeknd has been fairly quiet since the release of his first true radio breakout “Earned It,” which was originally for the 50 Shades Of Grey soundtrack. Abel has now unleashed a brand new track titled “The Hills” alongside a music video that has been previously performed live, and was thought to be titled “Mood Music.”
The Weeknd never fails to deliver captivating music videos and this latest video is no exception. Eerie, dark visuals set the tone perfectly for the song. Abel emerges from a car crash, which then engulfs in a fiery explosion while he walks away from the crash as he offers his explicit, sensual crooning until he ultimately ends up in a strange bedroom with multiple women. Enjoy.
The anticipation for Hudson Mowhawke’s sophomore album Lantern builds a little bit further with the release of his newest single "Scud Books" which is an instrumental track that is accompanied by a video. The music video is very unique like HudMo panning between slow motion explosions of Orchids blossoming and him turning up at live shows for an interesting combination to say the least. “Scud Books” feels like the first all out party starter of the album in the vein of his past supergroup TNGHT.

Eryn Allen Kane is an incredibly promising new female singer out of Chicago who has been featured on various songs with fellow Chicago artists like Chance the Rapper's infamous "Arthur's Song" or Towkio & Chance's "Heaven Only Knows." Well the young songstress has decided to break out on her own with her debut single "Have Mercy" which comes complete with a complimenting music video. The song is incredibly raw, filled with a minimalstic beat and a chorus of acapellas which sound like they could be her voice. We hear her impressive vocals range and truly feel the raw emotion she conveys. The song will most likely give you chills, also paired alongside a very gifting video focused around her in a dark room that adds an even more raw layer to the whole thing. I would expect to hear a lot more from this budding new singer. Enjoy!

It’s typical for rap producers to sample classic tunes on their new productions, but it’s not so common for a rapper to simply use an original song to just rap on top of. That is exactly what we have here with Wiz Khalifa’s new track “Good For Us” which was released via video where he spits fresh bars over Marvin Gaye’s classic cut “Sexual Healing.” This timeless soul song actually provides for a wonderfully smooth rap beat in which Wiz comes in with a solid verse that will surely get you in summertime mood. Kick back, roll one up, and enjoy!
