It’s never a surprise to hear great new music from Alicia Keys. It’s actually expected at this point but with the release of Girl On Fire she’s set the bar even higher. The way she stretches sonically (When It’s All Over) and continues to share from the deepest place just keeps getting more inspirational (Brand New Me). Collaborating with people like Maxwell, Jamie xx and Miguel definitely doesn’t hurt but it’s clear that Alicia is always at the core of the songs on this new album. Her point of view seems to seep from every note and now we love her even more because of it.
Another incredible video for his latest album Looking 4 Myself.
Colin’s been quiet for 4 years but thankfully he’s reemerging now. Nobody makes music quite like Mr. Munroe, it’s soulful and extremely fresh. He’s brought along some interesting co-stars for this free album too. Unsung Hero features talent like Kendrick Lamar, RZA and Pusha T. Catch his video for the 1st track off it below and download Unsung Hero here.
This is why singers should have their actual girlfriends starring in their videos with them. Miguel and his girl Nazanin Mandi’s chemistry is incredible. Kaleidoscope Dream is out now!
Jeff just seems to be getting better. On this mixtape he features some of the hottest new songs along with classics from back in the day and it all seems to make sense together the way he mixes them. Shout out to LRG and Complex for sponsoring it.
