Afrojack – Wave Your Flag

That tweet says it all. Afrojack and Luis Fonsi put the power back in the hands of the people with their new release, “Wave Your Flag”.


Laidback Luke x Ralvero ft. Ina – XOXO

“Laidback Luke and Ralvero have teamed up for a stellar collaboration called ‘XOXO’. With delicate vocals by the talented Ina, this track stands out in quality and originality like no other. But there is more. ‘XOXO’ contains a special message Laidback Luke and Ralvero want to share with their fans, giving this release some serious substance.

Since music possesses the power to uplift people and transcend time and space boundaries, Laidback Luke & Ralvero felt ‘XOXO’ should represent something more than just a release. Ralvero/Luke: ‘With such a strong message in the vocals and deep feel to it, we knew we wanted to do something big with this one. In times where people are confronted with all sorts of uncertainties, we want XOXO to create a movement of love. We hope people can really come together and share their love for music and each other.'”

Deorro ft. Lesley Roy – Tell Me Lies

Originally releasing back in December via SoundCloud, Deorro’s “Tell Me Lies” has made its way to Spotify in February and should be added into your playlists. Together with the vocals of Lesley Roy, the track “offers up an emotive dance ballad that falls far outside his usual bounce work.” [2]


Rexx Life Raj ft. Russ – Waiting for You

Hitting a couple cities with Russ on his #RealFansTour, Rexx Life Raj and Russ found the right amount of time to collaborate on this new single from Rexx Life Raj.

“The process of making the songs with Russ was actually hella simple, which is why I knew it would come out clean,” Raj told Billboard in an email about the making of the track. “The vibe was there because we’re both on that melodic rap s–t, but we still have an emphasis on bars. The same vibe transitioned to the studio. The tracks we made were pure blap and it was effortless. The energy in the room was hella positive, so I knew something good would come out.” [3]


ALBUM: Stormzy – Gang Signs & Prayers

23-year-old grime & British hip-hop artist, Stormzy dropped Gang Signs & Prayer after a year long hiatus from social media. The new album has a couple features from the bay area’s Kehlani to MNEK and Raleigh Ritchie. Stormzy also received some love from Adele as she shared a good luck post on Instagram with the cover of his album:

This fine young man's album is out today. Good luck darling @stormzyofficial 👑 stormzy.com

ALBUM: José James – Love In A Time of Madness

“José James is reborn as a powerful voice in contemporary R&B on Love in a Time of Madness, his vibrant new album.” [1] Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, José James is known for blending modern jazz and hip-hop. His smooth vocals get laid down over both acoustic tracks with the soft melody of the guitar or piano to more bass boomin hip-hop beats.
