Now that the plans to release ‘Screw You’ with Cheryl have been shelved, (let’s face it, it wasn’t such a great track in the first place) Wretch 32 is releasing what we call one of his finest tracks to date, in early February, entitled ‘Pop?’
Highly addictive, fast bass line, impressive lyrics. You have it all there. This is going to be an absolutely banger. And it’s to be released on February 10, so mark the date in your diary.
But there’s more. ‘Pop’? has also received the remix treatment by no one else but Mele, and while it’s completely different from its original, it’s a given that Wretch is on his way to raise the roof of every party/club in the coming months. Check out for yourself below.
Whether the remix will be included with the single edit is not yet known. Stay tuned for more info. Pop by Wretch 32 is released February 10.
It’s not exactly been the best day in the life of Azealia Banks if we’re being honest. The enfant terrible of the rap/Hip Hop scene seems to be getting herself into a bit of mischief but leaving that aside the release of her debut album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ is getting really close. So in order to build up the anticipation, miss Banks unveiled two brand new tracks.
The brand new track ‘BBD’ was released on January 1st and is produced by Sup Doodle and Apple Juice Kid, whose previous credits include Wale and MC Lyte. Listen to the track below
The other track Banks unveiled last night is called ‘No Problems’ which was produced by Machinedrum. The track is aimed as a diss track for Angel Haze.
Leaving the dissing aside, Banks shows she’s still the bomb when she mixes her rap style with incredible music melodies.
The more we hear, the more we get excited for ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’. The release of both tracks is said to warm the audience up for the announcement of Azealia’s official lead single ‘Miss Amor’. Watch this space!
Believe it or not, but here in the UK retailers are already gearing up for Christmas, and by the looks of it the music industry is doing exactly the same with its first Christmas and repackage/Deluxe Edition album announcements.
Jumping on the same bandwagon is Nicki Minaj. The US rapper/Hip Hop artist has released a brand new track, called ‘The Boys’ featuring R&B singer Cassie. The new track is featured on a repackaged edition of the singer’s latest album ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’. The new album entitled ‘Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-up’ is expected November 5 and will feature new tracks, of which a duet with fellow rapper Lil’Wayne.
As for ‘The Boys’ itself, Minaj continues to focus on ‘fun music’. Bringing a big fat beat with her, and a brilliant mix of rapping versus singing (in this case done by Cassie) it’s less poppier than previous singles but extremely exciting to see in the charts. And it leaves us intrigued to find out what the rest of the new tracks will look like.
Despite being busy making appearances on festivals in both Europe and the UK, there’s nothing stopping Example from releasing the video for his new single ‘Say Nothing’. The new single which is out on September 16, succeeds the recent collaboration of Example and Calvin Harris.
The video, which was shot in Spain, is predominantly in a light blue colour, following Example in a deserted place. In all honesty, we’re not quite sure yet about the track, as you can read in our findings here, but given it’s example and he’ll get loads of radio play, this is surely going to be another massive hit for him.
‘Say Nothing’ is taken from the new album ‘The Evolution of Man’ – due for release later in 2012, and produced by Dirty South.
Elliot Gleave, better known under his stage name Example, already teased in several interviews his new album would have a more rocky edge to it but a first preview of what that might sound like is now available to hear , in the form of the singer/rapper’s new single ‘Say Nothing’.
Example, who’s currently featuring on the Calvin Harris collaboration ‘We’ll Be Coming back’ nicely continues with the style of dance music since his debut album ‘Playing In The Shadows’. But while he’s previous singles had a much more catchy chorus to sing along, the Dirty South produced track ‘Say Nothing’ makes up more than well for its stadium feeling, a hooky guitar riff and signature Example lyrical prowess. With the new collaboration already on its way to the number 1 midweek charts, looks like Example is yet again set to dominate the radio and charts with the release of the new track.
‘Say Nothing’ succeeds the number 1 hit singles ‘Changed the Way You Kiss Me’ and ‘Stay Awake’ and will be available on September 16 through Ministry of Sound. Example’s third album is expected for a late 2012, early 2013 launch.
