Boosie Badazz feat Keyshia Cole & J Cole "Black Heaven"
With Touchdown 2 Cause Hell just a week away, Boosie Badazz releases one of the most highly anticipated tracks off the album entitled "Black Heaven". The song features Keyshia Cole on the hook and a deep verse from J.Cole. Badazz is clearly the star of the track despite having the two big name features. His verses reference several famous blacks that have passed and he touches on what he imagines they are doing in "Black Heaven".
#TD2CH has gotten better and better with every track released by Badazz. The album is becoming one of the most anticipated rap LPs of the year. Fans have been waiting for this album since Boosie's release from prison. While the Life After Deathrow mixtape was a great holdover, #TD2CH is what they have really been waiting for. The album is now available for pre-order and you get several songs instantly (including "Black Heaven") when you order. Touchdown 2 Cause Hell touches down on May 26th.
Taylor Swift feat Kendrick Lamar "Bad Blood (Remix)"
Taylor Swift should just change her "Number 1". Everything she puts out, from albums to single, goes straight to the top. The girl is killing this game; who else you know sells a million copies in their first week with damn near every album? Nobody but Ms. Swift.
While racking up a plethora of awards at the Billboard Music Awards, Swift also premiered the video for her latest single "Bad Blood (Remix)". The remix features two verses from Kendrick Lamar and the video is star-studded with female celebrities. With her first two singles reaching #1 on the Billboard Top 100, she looks to reclaim that spot with her fourth single. "Bad Blood (Remix)" is already #1 on the iTunes. Check out the cinematic video below.
Sidenote: Taylor Swift will be in Baton Rouge Friday performing in Tiger Stadium for her 1989 World Tour.
Meghan Trainor feat John Legend "Like I'm Gonna Lose You"
If you recall back when "All About That Bass" dropped, TheMindOfMyron.com was one of the first to give it praise. The song eventually blew up and artist Meghan Trainor has received multiple accolades for it including a Billboard Music Award for Top Hot 100 Song.
With a successful album and several hit songs, Trainor has decided to slow it down a bit for her fourth single. The song is called "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" featuring John Legend (one of my favorite tracks this week). I heard the song for the first time when the two performed it at the Billboard Music Awards and instantly fell in love with it. I even bought it on iTunes (yes, I said bought). While it is a different for Trainor, I think the ballad will be successful. The song is beautiful and Trainor and Legend has great chemistry. Check it out below.
Trey Songz "About You"
Trey Songz released Trigga in 2014. Though many considered it Songz's best album since Ready, Trigga did not get the recognition that he felt it deserved (he should have been nominated for a Grammy). Despite being busy touring around the world with Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj (separate tours), Songz has been hard at work on new material.
The R&B singer has now reup'd his arsenal and is gearing up to release a brand new album entitled Trigga Reloaded. While the album's first single "Slow Motion" is still in heavy rotation, Trigga decided to drop a new single called "About You". This song is dedicated to the ladies. Trigga Reloaded drops June 23rd. However if you can't wait that long, Songz just released Intermission 1 & 2 to iTunes featuring 11 tracks (6 new ones).
Tyga "Hollywood N*ggaz"
Where can we start with Tyga? Seems like he has been in the news for nothing but negativity as of late. From the backlash of dating the 17 year old Kylie Jenner, to issues with his child's mother Blac Chyna, to being served papers at a sneaker signing, Tyga has not been winning as of late.
Tyga is now working on getting his career back on track. He has a new MTV 2 show in the works and his new album "The Gold Album" finally looks like it's ago. Despite issues with his label and multiple album setbacks, Tyga has finally released a new single from the album called "Hollywood N*ggaz". The song is HOT! This is a different Tyga. I never heard him flow this way or rap on this type of style of production. The Gold Album might just shape up to be something special.
Ray J feat Lil Wayne "Brown Sugar"
If Ray J had one wish, it would probably be to get Kim K back. Or maybe it would be for another hit single. While the first of the two is impossible, the latter may just be obtained. Ray J is back with a new single called "Brown Sugar featuring Lil Wayne. The song is actually pretty cool. Wayne has been on a roll with the features this year and does not disappoint with this one. Check it out below.
K. Michelle "Hard To Do"
While the world has been focused on both Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" and Nicki Minaj and Beyonce's "Feeling Myself" videos, K.Michelle new video has flew under the radar. That needs to change. K.Michelle dropped a video for her new single "Hard To Do". The song is dope but the video puts the icing on the cake. Expect to see a lot of that cake in the video too as K shows off a variety of styles as well her body. Peep the thirst trap video below.
Monica feat Lil Wayne " Just Right For Me"
Monica has been working on a new album and now we have its first offering. Her new single "Just Right For Me" is the first off her upcoming Code Red album and features Lil Wayne who delivers another hot verse. Expect Code Red to drop this summer and Monica will be in Baton Rouge on June 12th at Allure.
Kevin Gates "Khaza"
Not sure where this new Gates track will end up but I am really feeling it. The song is entitled "Khaza" named after his son but do not expect a soft ode to the young boy. Gates is spitting as vicious as ever on this track. I really love the flow he uses as well. Peep the track below.
