Ahead of the release of The Weeknd's highly anticipated forthcoming album Beauty Behind The Madness, one of the most hyped tracks off the project has surfaced on the internet! “Prisoner” features none other than Lana Del Rey, and just as we hoped, these two crooners have an unreal level of chemistry as their duet brings a female perspective on the otherwise all-male album. The track starts off slow and builds to a catchy, yet sorrowful and heartfelt hook with the typical menacing, eerie production going back to the sound from Abel's mixtape days. The two sadly reflect on their lifestyle in this track and Lana comes in and offers her slick falsetto vocals to round out the track and it ends with Lana’s spoken word putting the song in perspective. Stream the song below and enjoy.

Today we have a perfect lazy Sunday, feel good jam for your listening pleasure by Soulection’s Stwo. Ta-Ku recently enlisted the dreamy vocal talents of Alina Baraz on “Down For You," and now we see that she has the perfect voice to remix as Stwo takes on her collaborative track alongside Galimatias titled “Maybe” off their Urban Flora EP. This talented Soulection producer brings a sultry, atmospheric vibe that is a perfect rainy day tune as background rain and vinyl crackles set the mood for slow, melodic synths underneath some minimalist percussion and he even throws in a gong sample to round it out. Enjoy
