I don’t know much about the newly formed group Dead Times, except they describe themselves as alternative R n’B.    I have never heard that description of a group before but after listening to “Feel” I am definitely looking forward to future music.


Rihanna- “Diamonds”

With speculation on the actual title of her next album, Rihanna has given us the first song, “Diamonds”. 7 Wonders may be the title of the album, but for now who cares… we know that she has an album in progress and we got some new material, what else can we ask for?!? And watch for tour dates soon, for next years tour. Listen to the gorgeous Rihanna’s new one below.

Lana Del Rey- “Ride”

November 13, Lana Del Rey will release her debut album in a deluxe package called Born To Die: The Paradise Edition, 11/13. “Ride” is an amazing song, from the album, that we first got to hear today, produced by Rick Rubin. Hoping to see and hear much more of Lana in this next year. Do yourself a favor and listen to “Ride” below.

Phonte- “Gonna Be A Beautiful Night” Feat. Carlitta Durand (Video)

Some great vocals here from Phonte, that features Carlitta Durand on “Gonna Be A Beautiful Night”. It’s not often that you get two amazing talents on one track. Can’t wait to hear some more stuff in the near future…

Frank Ocean- “Pyramids” (video)

Definitely check out the new Frank Ocean video for “Pyramids”. It’s probably going to be one of the best directed videos this year with some of the best effects and editing out there. Keep watching, because you’re going to run into John Mayer eventually. Enjoy!

Wild Belle- “It’s Too Late”

What an amazing sound these two have created… that’s Elliot and Natalie Bergman of Wild Belle whom I was referring to. You can hear quite the combination of genres mixed together in this one song. Seems like they’d be great to see live, and I can only imagine that everyone’s off their seats, dancing away… Keep an eye open for more good music from Wild Belle, since they just signed a 3-album contract with Columbia Records.
