Thu, 13 Oct 2016 14:19:21
It was a stunning week when it came to new songs. There was a collaboration between Maroon 5 and Kendrick Lamar, and one between Robin Thicke & Nas, you don't get much bigger than those combos. Gucci Mane dug into Woptober with his new song "Icy Lil B****", and the release of his new mixtape is just around the corner, October 17th. Mary J. Blige release the first single, "Thick of It", from her just-announced record Strength of a Woman, which will be out later this year.
Cloud Nothings announced Life Without Sound, their follow up album to 2014's Here and Nowhere Else, and unveiled the first single "Modern Act". The Who are releasing a deluxe remastered version of their debut record, My Generation, in November. The album will come with three brand new tracks, and this week we got to hear "The Girls I Could've Had". And that was only the beginning for a week filled with stellar new songs.
Here are our favorites:
Maroon 5 - "Don't Wanna Know" [ft. Kendrick Lamar]
Up to a few weeks ago, a collaboration between Maroon 5 and Kendrick Lamar seemed like it would never happen, but how things change. "Don't Wanna Know" is just as catchy as it sounds, and is sure to blow up Top 40 radio stations across the nation.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - "Drug Dealer"
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis aimed their sights on Big Pharma on their newest track "Drug Dealer". We dug deeper into the new song earlier this week.
Robin Thicke & Nas - "Deep"
There's a new Robin Thicke single out, and it opens with a verse from Nas. "Deep" details conversations Nas has had with his son about police.
Foxygen - "America"
"America" was made with a 34-piece orchestra, and is a follow up to their 2015 track, "24 Hour Lover Man". The song is huge and sweeping, going from fast to slow in just mere moments, just like it's namesake.
