Released as part of Bieber’s Journals collection this past Monday, the singer revealed the R&B laced track, “Backpack,” with guest vocals from Lil Wayne. It’s weird and seemingly about aliens, yet it has that classic Bieber vibe that Beliebers go mental over. Also appearing on Journals are tracks featuring Future and Big Sean.

Fall Out Boy Release "The Mighty Fall" Music Video

We are all familiar with horror films that feature people running for their lives through wooded areas in the dead of night. The entity chasing these protagonists are often a maniacal killer or never-before-seen creature, but in the latest from Fall Out Boy, the band of baddies are of a much smaller variety.

Throughout 2013, Fall Out Boy have been releasing music videos for their album Save Rock And Roll that carries a fluid theme of violence and danger. Chapter 5 of this series, otherwise known as “The Mighty Fall,” finds the members of FOB being chased through a roadside forest by a band of mischievous teens armed with deadly weapons. They get separated, as all frightened groups at night do, and one by one fall victim to the villainous teens. You can view the video below.

If you pay close attention to the second half of “The Mighty Fall,” you’ll notice a reference to Michael Jackson‘s “Thriller” that may hold a clue to what fans can expect in Chapter 6.

Save Rock And Roll is available now. (more…)

Big Sean Releases "Beware" Video

Just a little under a week ahead of his new album hitting stores, Detroit native Big Sean has released the official video for his latest single, “Beware.”

The third Hall Of Fame single to surface ahead of the album’s August 27 street date, “Beware” pairs Big Sean with frequent collaborators Lil Wayne and Jhene Aiko. The video throws most of the song’s lyrical themes to the side in favor of a more psychedelic, performance-based clip, filled with vibrant colors and creative editing. We’re not complaining, as the final results are certainly mesmerizing in their own way, though it does feel like a bit of a wasted opportunity for storytelling. You can view the clip below.

Big Sean is rumored to be prepping another video release in the immediate future. After his record is in stores he will be popping up around the country for spot dates and eventually announcing his fall tour. Stay tuned for additional details in the coming weeks. (more…)

Drake Takes Credit For His Own Success With "All Me"

Canadian superstar Drake has released a new song patting himself on the back for all he has been able to accomplished in life so far.

Partnering with hip-hop heavyweights 2 Chainz and Big Sean, Drake surprised the Internet in the early hours of today by releasing a new song (and free download). The track, titled “All Me,” is a celebration of getting yourself to the place you want to be. Throughout the verses and hook all three emcees review their achievements and drive home the idea that none of it would have been possible without one thing: themselves. You can stream and download the track on Soundcloud.

While it may seem like we’re giving Drake a hard time for patting himself on the back with “All Me,” it would be hard to argue that he is wrong. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on this latest material.

Big Sean Streams "Beware"

Detroit native Big Sean has released a stream of a new single entitled, “Beware.”

The first new song to surface from Big Sean since “Switch Up” made a splash back in March, “Beware” is a quasi-love song chock so full of attitude even the toughest of hearts will be compelled to bob their heads to the beat. Lil Wayne and newcomer Jhene Aiko guest, but there’s no question who the star of the show turns out to be. You can stream “Beware” below.

It is unclear at this time whether or not “Beware” will appear on Big Sean’s new album, Hall Of Fame. Either way, we’re already sold on buying the record when it hits shelves August 27. How about you? (more…)
