The ska-inflected Pharrell/Katy Perry/Big Sean throwdown gets a suitably colorful music video by Emil Nava, which features each of the key players vibing out in an island paradise. Perry is either rocking a wig for this one or it was filmed quite a while ago, before she chopped her hair off. Watch below, and as always, don’t be afraid to catch feels.
Unarguably one the biggest African tune in 2017 so far by Davido gets the much touted remix which features living legend R. Kelly and it’s awesome!!!!
Now Sometime last month, Sony Music act, Davido revealed that legendary American R&B singer, R. Kelly made a remix to his mega-smash, “IF“. The frenzy that ensued led to both camps going ahead to work on officially putting out the Kelz version as the official remix.
While Davido holds it down over a brief Lil Jon vocal sample, The R brings some raunchiness to the dance-ready track. “Would you come running for my needs on the double” he sings. “Come and bail me out when a ni**a get in trouble Give me that loving wherever we are Po-po-po-poke in the back of my car.”As his cameo continues, Kellz gets even more R-rated. “Baby, would you give me full control?” he asks. “Would you green light me, just let me go I’ll give you s*x never known before Brace yourself, girl, ’cause I’m dangerous.”.
This remix will remind you of R. Kelly’s song writing prowess just in case you forgot. His ability to flow and deliver all his lyrics in a seamless and impressive manner over this very afrobeat tune is nothing short of magical.

The producer/remixer masterfully crafts a blend of three tracks that are perfect alone, but work wonderfully together as well. Drake is still the hottest in the game, The Weeknd is on another stratosphere of success these days, and since the release of her acclaimed debut album, Ctrl, SZA has finally been receiving the praise that she deserves.
Jay uses a combination of their respective songs, “Teenage Fever,” “I Feel It Coming,” and “The Weekend” to create an incredibly smooth mashup titled, “Weeknd Fever.”

Dej drops new visuals for his latest single No Fear.
Dej Loaf is riding fearlessly in her new video. On a floating bed through the desert, Deja’s willing to risk it all in the name of love.
The summertime smash is given an appropriate visual treatment, finding the singer cruising atop a moving car beneath a pristine blue sky. Cruising as she kicks back on a mattress. While singing. Clearly, Loaf has many talents, including making a death defying feat look stress free.
Things get a little trippy around the halfway point, in which the video heads into psychedelic animated territory. One thing remains consistent, and that’s the desert landscape, as desolate as it is beautiful. Check out the latest from Dej Loaf now, and enjoy the summer vibes.
Veteran Rapper, musician and actor, Nel Ust Wyclef Jean, best known by his professional name Wyclef Jean, has released a new single dubbed “Fela Kuti prod. by Supah Mario” of his much awaited album [Carnival III: The Fall and Rise of a Refugee].
Carnival III, which is scheduled to drop this year in September, 15th to be precise, would be released under the Legacy Records platform. The Ready of Not singer, speaking to XXL also gave reasons why he named a track of his body work Fela Kuti as he liked Fela’s struggle to his own personal struggle.
In his words; I decided to name it Fela Kuti because for me, I feel like we be thinking of [Bob] Marley, we give a lot of people from our past props, so when the kids hear Fela Kuti, I really want them to Google it.
Fela Kuti studied jazz in England. Wyclef studied jazz at Vailsburg High School. Fela Kuti then went back to his country and tried to help his country by running for president. Wyclef, you know, did the same thing. Then, Fela, through all his obstacles and all that, his music is what pillared him right back to the top.
He understood the strongest way to help politically was to make sure the music was bangin. So for me, the same way kids can have songs called “Wyclef Jean” who are influenced by me, I want kids to know who Fela is and what he means.
Jean and other musicians formed a group in the 1980s under the name Tranzlator Crew. After they signed with Ruffhouse Records and Columbia Records in 1993, they renamed their group as Fugees and later released an album in 1994 dubbed Blunted on Reality.
In 1996, the Fugees released their second album, titled The Score. The album achieved significant commercial success in the United States, topping the US Billboard 200.
Jean announced plans to begin a solo career with 1997’s Wyclef Jean Presents the Carnival Featuring the Refugee All-Stars (generally called The Carnival). Released in 2000, Jean’s second solo album The Ecleftic: 2 Sides II a Book was recorded with guests including Youssou N’Dour, Earth, Wind & Fire, Kenny Rogers, The Rock, and Mary J. Blige.
Sean Kingston released another new song called “Fall” which brings his Vybz Kartel-assisted jam “Chance” to life in the Aaron Williams & Steven Benard-directed visual.

The single “Fall” will be featured on his upcoming Made In Jamaica album.Laced with a verse from currently incarcerated dancehall legend Vybz Kartel.
Sean Kingston. In fact, the last time he impacted our website was back in March when he shared the video for his January-release called “Chance” featuring Vybz Kartel, but thankfully that drought ends here today. With barely any warning, Sean decided to come out of nowhere late Monday night & liberate a new single called “Trust Me,” off his upcoming Made In Jamaica album.
T-Town Productions have gifted us a big surprise collabo, which previously wasn’t going to see the light of day.
The German production team worked on this record some years ago during the time when Chris Brown and Tyga were crafting their Fan of a Fan project. However, the rough cut of the track, which also features R&B King, R. Kelly, wasn’t chosen to be included on the album. And as it goes with many songs, they get put in the vault.
Fast forward to last month, and if you weren’t aware, a huge folder of unreleased Chris Brown songs and demos (46 tracks) was leaked online. Many of the records were very rough or unfinished, however some got attention among the internets and fan groups. When T-Town heard one of their songs was in the mix, they decided that since it found it’s way out, they would work on finishing it up and giving it a proper mix.
That they did, and with a thumping bounce with a heavy 808 that is primed for the club! Check out the surprise, unexpected collabo between Breezy, Kellz and Tyga below!
