This flick's as hyped as Gatsby himself With the premiere date less than a month away, the anticipation keeps building as The Great Gatsby production keeps leaking new trailers and soundtrack clips. The latest teaser is Florence and the Machine’s contribution to the 1920s period piece, “Over the Love.” The UK band joins an already long list of lauded musicians, including Jack White, Beyoncé, André 3000, the xx, and Lana Del Rey, who all appear on the film’s soundtrack. For the exclusive track, Ms. Welch belts out a moody ballad, whose lyrics link back to the classic novel “I can see the green light/I can see it in your eyes.” Listen to Florence and the Machine’s song “Over the Love”, featured in The Great Gatbsy’s soundtrack.

Aubrey Graham speaks truth As you may have noticed, we have a certain fondness for Miss Carter. After promising new music earlier this week, Drake drops a new track entitled "Girls Love Beyonce," acknowledging the pandemic lady crush that we just can’t seem to shake. The R&B crooner enlisted Noah "40" Shebib to produce the song, and James Fauntleroy to sing the chorus, which samples Destiny’s Child ‘Say My Name’. Looks like tough guy Drizzy’s got a soft spot for our Queen Bey, too. Listen to Drake’s latest track "Girls Love Beyonce" below. Drake ~ Girls Love Beyonce Feat. James Fauntleroy by octobersveryown
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily Life is but a dream for singer Solana Rower or SZA who has been heralded as the R&B female equivalent of Frank Ocean. Her first EP, See.SZA.Run, dropped last year to much applause gaining clout and anticipation for S, her latest EP and creation. The mix features eight songs and is the first of three that the songstress plans to release over the next few months -- next comes Z and A in atypical order. The songs themselves prove SZA's unique sound and commitment to the atmospheric genre she uses as a tag on Soundcloud. With titles like The Odyssey, Wings and Pray, the easy listening tracks certainly take us somewhere else with a dreamy smooth voice as our guide. Check out SZA's new EP S below.
Bringing back gold hoops and lip gloss We don’t know what it takes to get on Jessie Ware’s party guest list, but we think it’s something worth pursuing. For her new dance-pop song “Imagine It Was Us,” Ware spends the night at a bumpin’ club, surrounded by Studio 54-type go-go dancers. As she hits up the dance floor in a halter-top and gold hoop earrings, Jessie’s got us grooving along to her pumped-up 90s beat. Watch Jessie Ware in her latest video for “Imagine It Was Us” below.
Just floatin' along the Brooklyn Bridge If we had a day off in the city, we would probably spend it exactly as Cat Power did in her new video for “Manhattan.” The track is on her latest album Sun. The clip, directed by Chan Marshall and Greg hunt, follows Marshall as she roams the hoods of New York. Sipping on coffee, street gazing from rooftops, shopping for old vinyl, wandering through Chinatown, and of course, ending the night with drinks. Yep, sounds pretty perfect. Watch Cat Power in her new video for “Manhattan” below.
That pretty mf-ing duet. In anticipation of Jessie Ware's official US release of her debut album Devotion (April 16th), Jessie has released the remix of her track "Wildest Moments" with pretty boy A$AP. Apparently, Pretty Flacko can't get enough of the pretty songstresses as this is his third collab with female artists (re: Florence Welch and Lana Del Rey). "Imagine it Was Us," a new song from the album has also dropped. A$AP's verses do much to enhance the ballad that became popular last year. If only the two would get together and make the world's second most talented couple. (Bey-Z takes one and Kimye is lacking talent on the Kim side). Apparently he's in love. Listen to A$AP's additions below. Found on Vibe
