New Song: Jhené Aiko – ‘New Balance’

 

jhene10-elle

The last time we heard from Jhené Aiko, she was in a duo with Big Sean under the moniker Twenty88, crafting an album and short film under the same name. Aiko has decided to make a surprise return to making solo music with the release of a rough demo cut titled “New Balance.”

Opening with a beautiful and sorrowful piano intro, Aiko opens up to the world about how most people (and maybe even herself) are unbalanced but her lover brings her the clarity and balance she needed.

“Most of us are angry / Most of us are strangely, more alike than we liked to believe / Most of us are empty / Most of us are simply, more alive in the scenes of our dreams / Then there’s you,” she sings.

The song then picks up in the second half, introducing soft, mesmerizing guitars and muffled drums and bass to lighten the mood.

Aiko is currently on The High Road Tour with rappers Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa.

Daron Jones of 112 Releases New Song ‘Say Sum’

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.

Justin Timberlake Shares New Song and Video, ‘Supplies’

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.

Keke Palmer Gets ‘Bossy’ for FOX’s ‘Star’ Soundtrack

Keke palmer bossy

Kelis isn’t the only one that’s bossy; Keke Palmer is “Bossy” too on her new single.

On this trap banger, the 24-year-old triple threat sing-raps with swagger and confidence about how fine and fabulous she is.

“I’m independent got my own boo / And I can fuck some cash up if I want to / Fuck it up, body cold (frosty) / And I’m so (bossy) / Ain’t I so (saucy) / And my clothes (cost me),” she sings.

This song was written by K-So and A-Lex, who were writers on Keke’s last offering “Pregame.” Tasha Catour, who worked with her and Jane Handcock’s joint mixtape Keyana Nikole, is also credited as a writer and producer.

“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.
