New Music: Justine Skye – ‘Woosah’

Justine Skye pours her heart out on her newest song “Woosah,” which allows her to vent recent frustrations over soothing production.

Vowing not to cry over a broken relationship, Justine explains why the situation has to come to an end and why she’s ready to move on from her ex.

“Now I regret you, how did I let you play me like a fool?” she asks. “Can’t believe I didn’t know / That’s why I resent you / Tried to forget you / I’ll be better on my own / Time for you to hit the road.”

Taking to Twitter, the R&B songstress revealed that it was an autobiographical track. “This song perfectly describes how I’ve been feeling for a while now,” she tweeted. “So I just had to share it with you. Woosah.”

“Woosah” follows recent Justine Skye releases, such as “Lost Me” with Vory and “Back for More” featuring Jeremih, which arrive ahead of her upcoming debut album.

New Music: Big K.R.I.T. – ‘Confetti’

Big K.R.I.T. lets the “Confetti” fall with his first track of 2017 and his first solo release since last year’s triumphant “Free Agent.”

Over electric guitars and booming percussion, Young Krizzle raps about the state of hip-hop, balling all summer, flexing on Christmas, and having a crib on Mt. Olympus.

“Got the win, I want the record, ni**a,” he raps. “What’s a crown if you don’t protect it, ni**a? / What’s a name, if they don’t respect it, ni**a?”

Along with “Confetti,” K.R.I.T. unleashes a new trailer, in which he shoots down and buries himself, as a symbolic gesture. The brooding Motion Family-directed visual is accompanied by another new track, in which he reflects on the future.

“Hard times will come again,” he raps. “I set aside a book of rhymes that will pave the way for now and then / I know forever is a mighty long time, so where should we begin?”


A$AP Rocky Brings ‘New Swag’ to Upcoming Album

After helping A$AP Mob drop Cozy Tapes, Vol. 2: Too Cozy last month, A$AP Rocky is hard at work on his third major label album, the follow-up to 2015’s At.Long.Last.A$AP..

Pulling inspiration overseas, Flacko has reportedly crafted some parts of the album in London, according to an interview he recently conducted with the Evening Standard. “I’ve been in the studio, just that, nothing else,” he said.

Why London? “It’s just special to me for some reason,” he explained. “I express myself way better when I’m in an environment that allows me to be. When I’m here, for the most part, I’m in a peaceful, creative environment and I’m testing the waters and making new music, messing around with new sounds and anything that’s innovative.”

According to Rocky, who’s reportedly collaborated with Skepta, the new album will be another step in his artistic evolution. “This new album is just basically like all my albums: evolved,” he said. “They’ve been missing me, they’ve been waiting for me, they need some new music, they need some new sounds, new waves, new swag, new everything. And who’s the man you go to for that? Yours truly. So I’m back, like I never left.”

Aside from working on his new album and marketing plans for his various entities, Rocky was also in London for the opening of an exclusive bodega-inspired pop-up shop with Selfridges.

Rocky is currently on tour with A$AP Mob in support of Cozy Tapes, Vol. 2: Too Cozy. Featuring Playboi Carti on select dates, the trek is set to run through Nov. 3. Meanwhile, Flacko’s third album is due later this year.


New Music: Demi Lovato feat. Lil Wayne – ‘Lonely’

In an effort to make music that’s more true to herself, Demi Lovato taps Lil Wayne for “Lonely,” a soulful cut off her just-released sixth album, Tell Me You Love Me.

Over DJ Mustard’s spacious and melodic production, Demi sings about heartache and loneliness. “I always needed saving,” she sings. “But now I’m fuckin’ lonely and you didn’t want me.”

An Auto-Tuned Weezy joins the heartbreak with harmonies about his own disappointments. “Bitch can’t even say ‘I miss you back’ over the fuckin’ texts,” he raps. “Every time you slept over my pad, you over fuckin’ slept.”

This isn’t the first time that Lovato has collaborated with a rapper. In the past, she’s also worked with Missy Elliott and Iggy Azalea, and has even covered Lil Wayne’s “How to Love.”

Tell Me You Love Me also includes “Sorry Not Sorry,” which beat out the album’s title track as the first single, in part thanks to one of her mentors, JAY-Z.

“I played JAY-Z both songs,” she told Noisey. “He said ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ because it was lighthearted. He was like, ‘A lot of people see you do the emotional thing all the time, but they don’t see you have fun!’ And I was like, ‘That’s such a good point.’ And [his opinion] kind of persuaded other people, too.”

Much like “Sorry Not Sorry,” Tell Me You Love Me is meant to be a reflection of her true personality, whether it’s fun or emotional. This is a departure from her past work, according to the star herself.

“When I went on tour and I sang all pop stuff,” she said. “It just wasn’t fun for me. It wasn’t soulful; I wasn’t getting into the songs. It was just kind of going through the motions. And when I came off tour, I was like, ‘You know what, I want to write music that’s going to be fun for me to sing every night.’”
