Teyana Taylor feat. Pusha T, Yo Gotti “Maybe”
Teyana Taylor is all grown up and she’s proving it on her new track “Maybe,” which features Pusha T and Yo Gotti. With tight, sexy vocals over a hot trap beat Taylor is ready to take over the clubs with this single.
112 may have just released their comeback album, Q Mike Slim Daron, last fall, but that is not stopping member Daron Jones from sharing new music. The singer/songwriter/producer just dropped an upbeat track titled “Say Sum.”
On the breezy tune, Jones sings about breaking his silence to compliment a woman’s beauty. “Girl you look so good / I had to say sum / And you just so fly / I had to say sum,” he sings.
There is no word if “Say Sum” will appear on a future project or if it’s just a promotional track for fans — either way, it’s still fire.
After dropping his “Filthy” track two weeks ago, Justin Timberlake follows-up with a new song called “Supplies.” On The Neptunes-produced track, Timberlake tells his woman that even in an apocalypse, his love enough for survival.
“‘Cause I’ll be the light when you can’t see / I’ll be the wood when you need heat / I’ll be the generator, turn me on when you need electricity / Some shit’s ’bout to go down / I’ll be the one with the level head / The world could end now / Baby, we’ll be living in The Walking Dead,” sings Timberlake.
Timberlake also premiered the video for “Supplies,” which was directed by Dave Meyers. The politically-charged video opens with Timberlake sitting in front of a stack of television screens consuming visuals a lot of issues that are happening in this country — from the #MeToo movement to police brutality.
From the looks of the video, Timberlake wants the world to know how ‘woke’ he is. But is he? We’ll leave that up to you to decide.
On Feb. 2, he will release his fifth album, Man of the Woods, on RCA Records. On Feb. 4, he will take center stage as the headlining act of Super Bowl Halftime Show presented by Pepsi.
“Bossy” is Ms. Palmer’s first official single since the Quavo-featured “Wind Up,” and is her first contribution to the soundtrack for FOX’s Star. Keke recurs on the Lee Daniels drama as Gigi Nixon, who is a feisty label mate of the show’s protagonist characters.
