Beyoncé's hot new single "Drunk In Love continues to stay on our radar with potentially the best rendition of the song yet with a surprising remix / cover from The Weekend complete with free download. The Weeknd breaks down the song and reconstructs it from the hot new background production to his completely new verses while still keeping the original hook lyrics in place. He manages to slip in some of his signature over the top lyrics like "the pussy's got some superpowers" and "I fuck my enemies" throughout. This is a complete change of pace from the recent festival remix of the song from Diplo from a couple days ago. Enjoy!

English angel Ellie Goulding linked up with Brooklyn rapper Angel Haze for an beautiful cover of James Blake's "Life Round Here". We essentially have a female version of the succesful remix of the song featuring Chance the Rapper, with Angel Haze taking over his spot on the song while Ellie manages to fill James Blake's chorus and verse. The combination of the two is nothing short of incredible as they leave listeners with quite the uplifting ballad of a cover. We can only hope this leads to future work between the two talented female vocalists. Enjoy.

Seven Lions recently announce a contest to remix his “Days to Come” song, and Coyote Kisses to a stab at it.. and created something incredible. As the description states “Decided to take a break from finishing up all our originals and try something we’ve never done before, incorporating more “live” instrumentation. The result is something more rock & roll/different. Enjoy :]” Listen and you will understand. They fuse live instrumentation with electronic elements like I never thought possible. The result is really something ground breaking, and I really hope to hear more songs in this fashion from Coyote Kisses. Besides incorporating live instruments the song maintains a great blend of the sweet melodies and just the right amount of smooth bass. You can vote for this song here. Enjoy!

Mac Miller just did a completely unexpected cover of indie / folk artist Bright Eyes. He covered one of my favorite tracks sung by Coner Oberst aka Bright Eyes, “First Day Of My Life”. Mac didn’t turn it into a hip-hop remix sampling the beat, he covered it. Never heard Mac sing like this. And that’s Mac playing the guitar, complete with random solo at the end. Chill out, enjoy!
