New Music: Kevin Cossom – Prove Nothin’


Singer-songwriter Kevin Cossom is slowly delivering tracks for us to dive into.

While there has really been no word on his next project, we’re hoping that it’s coming soon. Holding out on fans since the release of 2012’s Hook Vs. Bridge 2, the talented crooner has delivered a few tracks here and there, but nothing has seemed to give us a filling like the aforementioned and its initial installment, Hook Vs. Bridge. Perhaps because we’re waiting on another full project to hit us at once?

Well anyway! KC has decided to drop a new track titled “Prove Nothin,” to let everyone know that there’s nothing he really has to prove to anyone. Singing out, “F*ck these n*ggas, I ain’t gotta prove nothin’ / N*ggas talk like b*tches, neva do nothin,” we’re hoping Kev is setting us up for the big release next.

New Music: Sebastian Mikael – DOH

Sebastian Mikael DOH

Sebastian Mikael seems to be experimenting with sound a lot these days. Following two solid releases with the loosie tracks “Money” and “As Low As Me,” the Swedish bred singer/songwriter returns to his Euro roots a bit on the new electro-infused track “DOH.”

Chime-like synths open the track, which lead into pulsating percussion and dance floor rhythm, as Sebastian attempts to woo a lady his way.

“Come through, I want to know what makes you moan / Rendevous in my backseat, I want to lay here until the morning,” he sings.

New Music: DJ Cassidy feat. Chromeo & Wale – Future Is Mine (Remix)

Future Is Mine Remix

DJ Cassidy has been working hard making retro modern with his anticipated debut album Paradise Royale.  His latest single “Future Is Mine” featuring Chromeo is one of the best grooves of the year, and he turns it up a notch adding Wale to the official remix.

The feel-good funky vibes of the track were created by iconic musicians from the late 1970s and early 1980s, including Rufus’ John “JR” Robinson and Bobby Watson, guitarist Wah Wah Watson, “Forget Me Nots” composer/vocalist Patrice Rushen, and Michael Jackson horn and string arranger Jerry Hey.

“From the moment I first heard Chromeo’s music years ago, I knew we shared similar sources of inspiration,” Cassidy explains. “As we became friends, they proved me right. Dave and Pee bring the funk to everything they touch. They literally took the groove to the future…pun intended.”

Wale adds a nice touch with his slick verse, boasting “baby I’m Top 5, but never been Top 40.” We think that might soon change with this one!

CeeLo searches for meaning in today’s music and culture, singing: “If only music would help us understand / That’s why sometimes I hear a ghost on the radio / I went from station to station searching for someone safe to call.”

New Music: August Alsina feat. Lil Wayne – Why I Do It

August Alsina Lil Wayne

August Alsina is back and he’s setting all the doubters straight on the brand new single “Why I Do It” featuring Lil Wayne.

Over a pulsating beat, the New Orleans native gives listeners a taste of what his life is like today, and why he doesn’t need to explain himself. Wayne comes through with two slick, boastful verses claiming to be d’ing down your chick and calls himself KG (Kush God).

“I ain’t stopping until I got it all, and I’m winning until there ain’t no room for losing,” sings Alsina.

August is currently working on his currently untitled sophomore album, which is expected to drop later this year.

French admits money hasn’t changed him, and promises to call his girl on Facetime when he’s overseas touring.

New Music: Mario feat. Rick Ross – Forever


Early this year, Mario released the new single “Fireball,” which was a sort of comeback, buzz track to announce his forthcoming album, and first as an independent artist.

In June, producer Scott Storch revealed that he had signed Mario to his burgeoning new label, and they were working on his new album together.  Today, we get to hear the first taste of their work with the brand new single “Forever” featuring Rick Ross.

The track feels very much like the sound we’ve come to know Mario for most recently, R&B strings with pop synths, accompanied by some heavy percussion. He’s not letting go of that, and he’s not letting go of his lady, as he sings about wanting an everlasting love.

“I want this forever, I want you forever,” he sings on the chorus, adding: “Stay here with me, baby / I just want to love you till you scream.”

Mario’s first album in six years is titled Never 2 Late, and it is scheduled to be released on November 27.
