After having released 4 songs late last year for free which included the track "I Don't F*ck With You" which turned into a radio hit, Big Sean has built the buzz for his forthcoming studio album to an all time high.
Today we get the album's next single, "One Man Can Change The World" which is a collaboration with label head himself Kanye West and one of the smoothest voices in the game, John Legend. The three join forces for an unexpected uplifting ballad where both Sean and Kanye still manage to deliver solid verses. The song shows a different side we didn't see coming which is all tied together by John's heavenly chorus. It's looking like this album Dark Sky Paradise from Sean is sure to cause some damage when it finally drops on Feb 24th. Enjoy!

Out of nowhere, Djemba Djemba has taken the Drake approach unleashing 13 unreleased tracks as an incredible Soundcloud set titled “If you’re listening to this it’s Leftover Beats.”
All 13 tracks are amazing in their own way, with each being uniquely different from the others. Djemba Djemba, who's been known to frequently collaborate with everyone ranging from Diplo to Ailson Wonderland, displays his experimental tendencies as he incorporates elements of future bass, trap, hip-hop, jungle and more while with tha tracks themselves range from complete songs to cool sounding loops or beats. Standout tracks include all 3 of his collabs with Mr Carmack ("Money 2-2 ft. Penthouse Penthouse", "DARKERNATURE", "Iris v2") along with “Fashunweek,” “plum blossom,” and “Motherfuckers Ride Up,” but every song is definitely worth listening to. Enjoy!

To hold us over until the release of Action Bronson’s major label debut album Sincerely, Mr Wonderful due March 24th, he has shared a new single titled “Terry”. Bronson is right at home on this track as the production is a luscious, scattered boom-bap styled beat with minimal scratches and an atmospheric vibe, but takes an unexpected melodic twist at the end. This track serves as a strong follow up to previous singles "Easy Rider" and "Actin Crazy" as excitement continues to build for the full release. Action also just released a remix of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" that you can listen to here. Sit back and enjoy some signature Bronson vibes.

Mysterious producer KSHMR has still not let his identity surface, more than a year after turning out tunes like "No Heroes" with Firebeatz, "Burn" and others. But this has not prevented the artist from making quite a name for himself leading us to two of his biggest tracks to date. Today, we get his collaboration alongside powerhouse Dillon Francis, "Clouds."
The high energy anthem goes back to Dillon's earlier Moombahton roots in terms of style, but brings a new, 2015, powerful edge that is ready to ignite the largest of festival crowds. The song also features singing from Becky G, a budding pop star who brings a polished, yet youthful twist to the song with her vocals. We are excited to bring you guys the premiere on this one and even an exclusive download for our readers. KSHMR also has a collaboration with Tiesto set to release next month, so watch out for the masked producer as 2015 is set to be his true breakout year. Enjoy!

This is going to be released on Madonna's forthcoming album Rebel Heart due March 10th.

Drake just exploded the internet with the release of his unexpected album / mixtape If You're Reading this It's Too Late, featuring like likes of Lil Wayne, Travis Scott and PARTYNEXTDOOR. Today, Big Sean has released a track that is supposedly his lost verse on the song "Used To." The song made the album, but without Big Sean, Lil Wayne was on the track instead. Maybe it came down to differences between having both Big Sean, Drake, and Lil Wayne on the same track. Whatever it was, now Big Sean's shared the verse and damn is it hot. Listen to the new verse here, and listen to the version of "Used To" that made the album with Lil Wanye. Who delivered the hottest verse?
