Saturday (Aug. 25) marked the 17th death anniversary of Aaliyah and as usual, we saw tribute messages pouring in from fans and fellow artists for the late singer.
One of her producers has decided to unveil a previously unreleased song named ‘La La La’ for the fans. Rheji Burrell put out another song called ‘No Days Go By’ in the same YouTube clip but unlike ‘La La La’, this has been out before as a B-side to ‘Got To Give It Up’ from Aaliyah’s second album One in a Million.
Berner’s known for flooding the streets with music but he’s been relatively silent since the release of The Big Pescado. We could only assume he’s been locked in the studio and cooking up for his next release but fans have been eager to hear what he has up his sleeve. Thankfully, the wait is finally over and Berner is back with some new tunes. Today, he comes through with his latest track, “Light Show.”
Alex Da Kid shares an updated version of his single, “Go.”
Alex Da Kid’s made a name for himself as one of the hottest producers in the music industry. Over the course of his career, he’s worked with a diverse group of artists including U2, Christina Aguilera, Dr. Dre, Diddy, Nicki Minaj and more. The producer also launched his own record label, KIDinaKORNER in 2011. Whether he’s working on solo efforts or with others, he’s bound to produce heat. Back in May, he released his song, “Go” with H.E.R and Rapsody. Today, he comes through with an updated version of the track with one of U.K.’s most notable emerging artists.
Jorja Smith joins H.E.R and Rapsody on Alex Da Kid’s “Go 2.0.” The addition of Jorja Smith’s vocals bring a brand new dynamic to the track. The interesting part about this song is how the original came about. Instead of using the A&R method of bringing artists together, Alex Da Kid used a new technology called IBM Talent to help him uncover some talent he wasn’t familiar with before.
Jorja’s addition to the track makes the track even more solid. Smith’s been having a great year so far after releasing her debut album, Lost & Found. She’s bound to do some great things in the future so keep your eyes peeled for more moves from the U.K. songstress.
Atlanta’s own Blue Face Bally has been putting in work. Though only 19, the young rapper grew up as somewhat of an old soul, discovering hip-hop through East Coast legends like Mobb Deep, The Fugees, and A Tribe Called Quest. After his early music began gaining traction online, Bally decided it was time to dedicate himself to the craft full-time, eventually securing a deal with Dun Deal’s 4NXChange Records. After dropping his debut album Blue Face Trip, Bally has linked up with a prominent young Atlanta voice, Gunna.
Together, the pair have come through with Porshe, produced by the combined talents of Dun Deal, Fuse of 808 Mafia, and Blessed. Citing a desire to take fans on a “trippy hallucination through his mind,” Bally’s “Porshe” does exactly that, largely in part to the bouncy, hypnotic instrumental. After holding it down with an impressive opening verse, Gunna comes through with the finisher, laying down a melodic, subdued reflection.
Singer, songwriter and rapper Bobby Brackins has been behind the scenes for a long time, writing hits like Chris Brown’s ‘Loyal’, Tinashe’s ‘2 On’ and more.
The Oakland based artist is now working on To Kill For EP which will mark the second installment of his EP trilogy. Bobby shares the first single off the project today, ‘Big Film’ with guest appearances from Jeremih and fellow Bay Area artist G-Eazy.
Enjoy the new song and do let us know what you think.
