Iggy Azalea - Fancy feat. Reba McEntire
The song of summer 2014 gets a fresh coat of paint via a Dan Chamberlain mashup which teams Azalea with the one and only Lord Reba Nell McEntire.
Death From Above 1979 - Trainwreck 1979
NEW DFA 1979! NEW DFA 1979! Off their forthcoming album, due on 9/9. Heads up: The Canadian duo will be playing at The Riviera on November 25th. Tickets go on-sale Friday, July 11th at this link.
Maddie & Tae - Girl In A Country Song
These two 18-year-olds have had enough with the cliched narratives permeating through the current country music scene and wrote a scathing response to artists like Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton who have been accused of crafting lazy and formulaic songs about the same themes like girls, trucks, and uh...girls in trucks. Both funny and neccessary, this is like the country music version of "Roxanne's Revenge."
Kailo. - Need Ya feat. Aela Kae
Put this on any/all playlists you make from now until Thanksgiving. This Australian producer hit the mark with this one, a piece of pure concentrated summer pop with obvious '90s influences.
Nicki Minaj featuring Soulja Boy - Yass Bitch
This one is just Nicki being Nicki.
Mzwetwo - Michael Jackson
With an aggressive lo-fi sound and hazy but thumping bass, this 19-year-old is definitely one to watch going forward.
Poter Elvinger - Ghosts
Just a heads up: Don't be surprised when a big name rapper jumps on this instrumental.
Migos - Fight Night
The Atlanta rap trio has seen equal shares of hate and love since releasing their "Y.R.N." mixtape last year. This is easily the biggest hit off of their most recent release "No Label II" which debuted back in February but is still gaining traction.
White Denim - A Place To Start (Jamie Lidell remix)
Soul singer Jamie Lidell transforming this slow rocking tune from the band's 2013's album "Corsicana Lemonade" into a sparse, emotional number that sounds like it just jumped out of the DeLorean from 1989.
G-Unit - They Talked About Jesus
They're baaaaack! 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, Young Buck and Lloyd Banks on one song in 2014 is a beautiful thing. Buck sounds hungrier than ever on this one.
Because time is everything, all of these songs have been compiled into one easy playlist below. I also added some bonus jams including my favorite song from the newest Alex Wiley tape that I couldn't embed for some reason.
