Having recently released his new album, Scorpion, Drake has made a huge impact once again, this time by using an unreleased Michael Jackson sample on track, ‘Don’t Matter To Me’.

The critical reception for the track has been great and it has been hailed as one of the standout songs on the album. It has a distinctly stripped-back, R&B flavour to it with Drake singing rather than rapping and falsetto vocals from MJ on the chorus.

The posthumous vocals from Michael Jackson are taken from part of a unreleased session between Jackson and Canadian singer-songwriter, Paul Anka in 1983.

The track has reached Number 2 in the UK Charts, making it Drake‘s 15th UK Top 10 and Michael Jackson‘s 44th! A remarkable collaboration, in our opinion and it’s great to still hear something new from the King Of Pop!

No music video has been released for this track yet.

After releasing an open letter to fans, in which Ryan Tedder reveals that he nearly suffered a nervous breakdown and pulled the plug on the band, he informed fans that OneRepublic were changing!

From now on, the band are planning to release new music as and whenever they can – no album cycles, just new music! This is a refreshing outlook for a band and means that they won’t be bound by recording albums in the same way any more.

As such, the first single the band have released (after pretty much abandoning promotion of the uber diverse record, Oh My My) is their new track, ‘No Vacancy’ and my word is it a summer banger!

The track has hints at the current tropical house trend yet still retains that iconic OneRepublic sound – the track is an instant hit and just reinforces the golden nuggets they can produce!

No music video’s been released but the lyric video is below – check it out!

Maroon 5 – ‘Don’t Wanna Know’ featuring Kendrick Lamar

Maroon 5 have made a huge comeback with this fantastic new track, ‘Don’t Wanna Know’. The song is heavily influenced by current tropical house trends and features guest vocals from Kendrick Lamar.

The video is hilarious too as it features various people dressed in Pokemon-style outfits and sees people trying to catch them.

A great song, from a great band, with a great video!


‘Don’t Wanna Know’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/dont-wanna-know-feat.-kendrick/id1163369446?i=1163369683



Little Mix – ‘Shout Out To My Ex’

Little Mix have also just released their first track from their new album, ‘Shout Out To My Ex’.

The group first performed their new song on X Factor with a brilliant reception! The song has possible underlying connections to Zayn Malik‘s relationship to Perrie? Either way, it’s a monstrous new song from the band!

No video has been released as of yet, but we’ll update you on this – for now, watch their awesome X Factor performance below.
