First up this week is a stream of Second Sight, the latest record from Hey Rosetta! Still full of the group's soaring, anthemic rock cuts, the record also finds the band exploring their bouncy, pop-friendly side. Take a listen to the new record before it arrives tomorrow (October 21) through Sonic Records/Warner Music Canada.
South Park recently gave viewers a laugh by revealing that New Zealand pop star Lorde is actually the show's middle-aged geologist, Randy Marsh, in drag. While the accompanying parody single "Push (Feeling Good on a Wednesday)" sounds like the young vocalist, the song was reportedly sung by Sia. Full of big beats and synthesizers, you can hear the humorous cut by clicking the link above.
Chicago rap figure Young Chop unleashed details for his upcoming debut solo record Still, alongside an AutoTune-slathered track called "Valley," featuring his old pal Chief Keef. Of course, Keef is still steadily releasing his own new material as well, most recently premiering "How It Went" from his upcoming Mansion Musick mixtape.
The latest single from YMCMB's Rich Gang banner sees Young Thug and Lil Wayne join forces. Sharing a similar raspy vocal delivery, the two sound right at home together on "Take Kare," featuring piano-heavy production from London On Da Track.
Finally, the Weeknd's track "Often" has been given the remix treatment, featuring a couple of the biggest names in the rap game. While not sounding incredibly different from the original, the slow and sultry jam sees the Weeknd's vocals interspersed by particularly raunchy verses from Schoolboy Q and Rick Ross.
