New Music: Ty Dolla $ign feat. Damian Marley & Skrillex – ‘So Am I’

In anticipation of Beach House 3, Ty Dolla $ign drops “So Am I,” a collaboration with Damian Marley and Skrillex, which blends their varied musical styles into one banger.

“Girl, you’re looking for somebody you can call on,” sings Dolla. “Call on when you need it done right, if you’re looking for a real one, so am I.”

Over the reggae-tinged track, Marley — who recently released Stony Hill — delivers his own verse about his quest for a partner. “If you’re searching for the truth, but you’re so smart, that you always know a lie, baby, so am I,” he sings. “You’re sick and tired of a lover who do wrong even though they know the right, baby, so am I.”

This is just the latest glimpse into what Dolla is cooking up for Beach House 3, due this fall. Earlier this year, the raunchy-but-soulful crooner also released the Lil Wayne and The-Dream-assisted single “Love U Better.”

Back in 2012, Dolla unleashed the original Beach House mixtape. The following year, he delivered Beach House 2 and in 2014, he dropped the Beach House EP. Right as Dolla was releasing the inaugural BH, Skrillex and Damian Marley were also teaming up for 2012’s “Make It Bun Dem.”

OVO Sound’s PLAZA Gets ‘Personal’ in New Video

When OVO Sound’s PLAZA first signed with the label back in June, the Toronto native surprised fans by immediately releasing his SHADOW EP. Today, the soulful crooner delivers the project’s first moody visual in the form of “Personal.”

Directed by Nina Djacic, the gloomy visual finds PLAZA in the backseat of a sleek ride with his bra-wearing girl on his lap. While things get hot and heavy, the crooner looks somber as he stares into the camera.

“I told her we don’t gotta know nothing personal,” he sings. “They don’t gotta know nothing at all / If you wanna fuck with me, I told her we don’t gotta know nothing personal.”

Soon, PLAZA is riding around town with his girl beside him. However, as the mysterious video continues, the R&B singer is no longer behind the wheel and his girl finds herself in a room filled with other women who look just like her while the car continues rolling on without a driver.

“‘Personal’ was recorded right around the time I released the first EP, ONE,” PLAZA told The FADER. “It talks about being at a point where you feel you don’t have much to offer emotionally to a partner. Whether you’d like to or not. It’s all lust, and that can be exciting and it can be dark.”

New Music: Sammie feat. Rick Ross – ‘Good Life’

Welcome to the “Good Life.”

Shortly after premiering “Too Long” with Rap-Up, Sammie proves that he’s living the “Good Life” on his collaboration with Rick Ross.

The smooth R&B track plays like a mellow remix to Shy Glizzy’s “So Awesome” and Kanye West’s “Good Life” with Sammie’s soothing crooning. “I’m so awesome,” he sings. “I’m so awesome / Money over everything, yeah, that’s the motto / Welcome to the good life.”

Meanwhile, Renzel delivers a boastful verse, referencing surgically-enhanced bodies, championship rings, and a new lover. “Shoutout Dr. Miami, he keeps the ass the softest,” he raps. “Rings on every finger, Fat Boy the new Tom Brady / Had her move in with me, now the roommates be hating.”

“Good Life” and “Too Long” appear on Sammie’s Coming of Age. Due Sept. 15, the project is also set to feature an appearance from Eric Bellinger (“Show and Tell”).

Chloe x Halle Join Cast of ‘black-ish’ Spinoff ‘grown-ish’

Beyoncé protégées Chloe x Halle have just landed a role in Freeform’s “black-ish” spinoff “grown-ish.”

TV Insider reports that the series, which is set to star Yara Shahidi, will also feature Francia Raisa (Bring It On: All or Nothing) and newcomer Jordan Buhat.

The show is slated to take place at Southern California University, where Chloe x Halle will co-star as twin track stars named Sky and Jazz. Deon Cole, Chris Parnell, Emily Arlook, and Trevor Jackson round out the show’s cast.

Originally set to be titled “College-ish,” the series follows Shahidi’s “black-ish” character Zoey Johnson as she heads off to SCU.

Cole, who co-stars as Charlie on “black-ish,” plays the same character on “grown-ish,” however he is also an adjunct marketing professor in the new series. Freeform nabbed the show after ABC initially passed, according to Variety.

Freeform’s EVP of programming and development, Karey Burke, celebrated the move back in May. “Our goal at Freeform is to celebrate the power, possibility, and inclusivity of youth culture through our shows,” said Burke. “[‘black-ish’ creator] Kenya Barris blazes new trails in the funniest way possible with ‘College-ish’ and we can’t wait to get schooled by the incredibly talented Yara Shahidi, who is the perfect addition to our Freeform family.”

Freeform has thus far ordered 13 episodes of the show, which is scheduled to premiere in early 2018.
