Listen: The Best of April – Top 12 Records

The Best-of-April-Image

Last month, we missed doing a monthly recap list, but it was mostly because March wasn’t too great with the singles that were released. However, April started off strong making up for it with the major comeback of Maxwell, and plenty more solid records from established stars and newcomers.

Chris Brown was pissing people off on social media, but on the music tip he surprised us all dropping the anticipated 2nd and 3rd star-studded remixes to his single “Back To Sleep.”

Rising artists like Ro James and Rush Davis had us in our feelings, T-Pain called out all the Instagram vixens who don’t even speak in their selfie vids, and Mary J slayed while reuniting with British hitmaker ROMANS.

Enough chat though, check out our list for The Best of April – Top 12 Records below!

New Music: Chris Brown feat. August Alsina, Miguel & Trey Songz – Back To Sleep (Remix)

The time is finally here!

After teasing us back in February with the news that there would be multiple remixes to his single “Back To Sleep,” and releasing the first part which featured Usher and Zayn Malik, Chris Brown has finally given us the second round (or third, if you include the original).

Featuring August Alsina, Miguel, and Trey Songz, Breezy lets his brothers take over the first few verses to the track while he takes on the chorus to the sexual seduction. Sending out a tweet to fans with the message, “I come baring gifts,” we’re hopeful that the new remix will shed light on what we love Chris for – the music – and take all the focus off of his recent comments about former collaborators.

Though we were waiting on this remix, there’s still one left that we’re on the lookout for that features Bryson Tiller, Tyrese, and Tank.

Until we get it though, take a listen to the new all-star remix below:

So it all comes together now. After covering the song at SXSW in Austin last week, Miguel reveals and teases his official remix to Rihanna‘s popular song, “Kiss It Better,” off her ANTI album.

Miguel previewed a snippet of the remix on Instagram, along with a nearly NSFW pic of a woman holding the Rolling Stones logo. RiRi shows up on the remix too, as the duo harmonizes perfectly.

Miguel Covers Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” at SXSW


The SXSW week is already in full swing, and Miguel got an early start on the festivities performing at the Spotify House on Monday.

While his set was in typical Miguel form, including favorites off his latest album Wildheart, the R&B maverick gave the crowd a treat by covering Rihanna’s popular song, “Kiss It Better,” off her new album ANTI.

The two recently shared a fun-filled duet of “My Girl” at his Wildheart Motel pop-up in Los Angeles, but the singer also recently spoke with TMZ about her ANTI smash hit “Work.”

“I don’t know [what she’s saying],” he told a cameraman. “That sh*t sounds amazing though. Work, work, work, work, work. That’s all you need to know.”

Watch a portion of his performance below.

Video: Miguel feat. Kacey Musgraves – waves (Remix)


Miguel is still riding the “waves.” After releasing the videos for his Travis Scott-assisted remix, and the Tame Impala version, the R&B star is back with another. This time, he releases visuals for the version with singer Kacey Musgraves.

Of course, the steamy clip, which clocks in at under a minute, also has a beach theme. The twosome share some fun in the sun while scenes of Miguel in a convertible flash in and out of a dream-like sequence.

“I feel like it’s gonna be a good, summer, slow, chill jam,” Musgraves told Elle. “It was a challenge. It was different figuring out, ‘How am I going to make this song me?’ I didn’t want it to sound like I’m just covering a Miguel song. I wanted it to sound like me.”

But she also enjoyed something that may be surprising to her fans. “I like that the bridge is sort of aggressively sexual,” she explained. “You don’t normally hear a female singing something like that.”

All five remixes to “waves” can be found on Miguel’s Rogue Waves EP. Check out the visual below.
