Only a few days into 2018, and some major announcements have already been made in the realm of hip-hop. Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s latest collaborative effort, “All The Stars” is set to be featured on the soundtrack for the highly anticipated Black Panther film. Kendrick and Top Dawg are producing the entire soundtrack. Yes. Excitement . . .
Back in August, we found out that Sza commissioned Solange to direct the music video for her hit single “The Weekend.” Then last month, she teased with a very short teaser of the finished product on her Instagram account. She finally released the video at midnight and it’s about as abstract as one would expect . . .
It’s a great time to be dvsn. Riding the success of their Morning After album, the smooth duo released a trio of remixes to ensure that their name remains at the top of everyone’s list. They chopped up SZA‘s “The Weekend,” Justin Bieber‘s “Friends,” and their own Roy Wood$-featuring single – “Don’t Choose.” Stream all three . . .
Maroon 5 has a rich collaborative history – they’ve already worked with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Future, and Wiz Khalifa. Their latest drop, “What Lovers Do,” features vocals from SZA, who’ll be riding the success of her Ctrl album for months to come. Stream “What Lovers Do” below.
It’s here! TDE songstress, SZA, drops her heavily anticipated CTRL album. The 14-song LP includes features from Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, James Fauntleroy, and Isaiah Rashad. Related: SZA serves looks that kill in “Love Galore” ft. Travis Scott Stream CTRL below and get the album on iTunes.
CTRL is definitely on the way! No official release date has been dropped but we have word that we’ll receive it this summer via RCA and Top Dawg Entertainment. On the way, TDE’s SZA unleashes her new single, “Love Galore” featuring the everlastingly lit Travis Scott. SZA gives behind the scenes looks as ‘CTRL’ nears . . .
SZA and Los Angeles-based producer Kingdom are a succulent match on their ethereal new groove, “What Is Love.” Featuring rich melodies and the upper register of SZA’s vocal range, the song is based around the real life application of love. Look for this to appear on Kingdom’s full-length debut album, Tears in the Club, which . . .
SZA recently dropped “Drew Barrymore” for the first release from her upcoming project, CTRL. Today, fans can go a little deeper behind the behind the scenes of what she has been up to. There is still no official release date for CTRL, but you know we got you when there is. Watch the behind the scenes . . .
It’s been long awaited, but SZA gives fans her first single of 2017. “Drew Barrymore” will reside on forthcoming CTRL Music which follows her 2014 release, Z. Listen to the Scum and Carter Lang-produced single below and grab it on iTunes.
Childish Major partied like it was his birthday yesterday, because it was. The Atlanta native connected with Isaiah Rashad and SZA to craft the smooth vibes of “Happy Birthday.” Not a bad way to bring in 25 years of life. He’s been on the scene for years, but this serves as his first official single. . . .
SZA is the latest to put her own spin on PARTYNEXTDOOR’s “Come And See Me.” Her version, “twoAM,” feels a bit more expressive than the original. The song concludes with a teaser for a different, unreleased song with a much brighter vibe. Stream “twoAM” below.
TDE’s SZA shows off her versatility by linking with well-known EDM DJ, Felix Snow. The two collaborate for the club ready “Lies.” It’s a pop banger that makes me wonder what more can SZA really do and which other artists outside of his direct circuit would Felix Snow be interested in working with? “Lies” will . . .
D.R.A.M. made waves with his solo appearance on “Caretaker,” which many considered a highlight of Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiments‘s Surf album. D.R.A.M. followed that back up with a longer version of “Caretaker,” featuring a guest appearance from SZA. Today, that song is brought to life once more via an intimate video featuring live . . .
Jay Rock collects guest features from fellow TDE representers Kendrick Lamar and SZA for “Traffic Jam,” a newly released remix of 90059 standout track “Easy Bake.” The highlight of the new version is more bars from Kendrick, and a new instrumental that gives everything a new feel. Production comes courtesy of Antydote, thankgod4cody & Chris Calor. Stream . . .
Joey Bada$$‘s Caribbean roots shine through via the art of dance in the official video for “Teach Me” ft. Kiesza. The premiere from MTV Jams mixed with the song’s innate catchiness might be what it needs to push into the mainstream realm. “Teach Me” is upbeat, fun, and energetic. It is definitely one of those . . .
