Check out this brand new mash-up made by JayBeatz. Mixing together Drake’s “The Real Her” and The Weeknd’s “Thursday,” for a new melodic remix titled “Thursday, It Goes Down.” Sounds pretty good to me. I liked how he added in the little “I’m so proud of you” vocal too. The official version of “The Real Her” will appear on Drakes new album Take Care, and features Lil’ Wayne, and I just heard a rumor they are trying to get Andre 3000 on it too.

Fresh from her European tour, Keri Hilson made a stop at “106 & Park,” where she was recognized for her work to help improve kids’ lives through education with the Get Schooled campaign.
“That’s so special,” said the blonde bombshell upon receiving the “Get Schooled” award. “It’s not that I feel obligated, but these are things that I love to do. I come from a family of educators. It means a lot for me to be able to do it. It’s like works of the heart.”
Miss Keri also revealed that she’s back in the studio working on her third album. “There’s some people in the world that aren’t gon’ like this album coming from me,” she warned. “As I was experiencing the world, there were things that I was also experiencing on a personal front, and in my music it’s coming out. There’s a specific few people who ain’t gon’ like to listen to this album. Very emotional, I’ll say that.”
The album is awaiting a release date while she decides whether to release another single off her current project. “You guys let me know whether you want to see another single off of No Boys Allowed,” she told the audience. “We’re still trying to figure out ‘All the Boys,’ ‘Buyou’… We’re trying to figure out if we want to release another single or move on to the third, but I’m always in the studio.”
