K. Michelle Birthday

K. Michelle is finally back on the R&B scene with her bumpin’ new single “Birthday.” On the Hitmaka-produced cut, K is pulling out all of the stops for her man like it is birthday.

“It’s ya birthday, baby what you wanna do? / Got some b*tches, got some pretty bitches comin’ through / Know I said I’d never do it, but I guessed I lied / Roll a L, Pour a drank, fuck it, let’s get high,” she sings.

It’s been a long road for K. Michelle’s fourth album, tentatively titled The People I Used to Know. If you’ve been following her journey, K. Michelle has described this album as one of healing and cleansing from people that she felt like have wronged her in the past. You can read more about what this album means to K. Michelle below:

Really can’t explain the amount of overwhelming excitement that has takin place in the past 3 months. God needed to show me that certain people aren’t who they pretend to be. Certain people want certain things from you. I saw some people just want money, some people just want camera time, some people just want the shine. I watched how I was quietly getting myself together and people started to count me out one by one, because I wasnt of use to them(So they thought) I needed that. Everyday phone calls from every day friends became non existent because they felt I couldn’t do much for them anymore. So they thought. I really have my second business, my twins are FINALLY on the way, I really have a new tv show, a play, 2 TOURS,a top selling drink in over 14,000 stores and growing, and A BRAND NEW ALBUM. I needed them to count me out so I could CUT them out.

Earlier this week, K. Michelle revealed she was having trouble deciding on what song to release as a single. “The label wants me to pick ONE song out of 50 something songs,” she tweeted early Sunday morning. “It’s just way 2 much pressure. I just can’t do that right now.”

With that said, can probably expect another song to drop in the near future.

K. Roosevelt Shares New Song and Video, ‘Adrenaline’

With the ink now dry on his new Def Jam deal, K. Roosevelt is already getting to work. The Los Angeles native has released a brand new song titled “Adrenaline,” off his debut self-titled EP, due July 27.

Supported by outmoded synths and artful bassline, the R&B newcomer recalls fond moments and precious memories of a special gal. “Used to say she’d cut me loose / If I played you like a fool,” he coos on the peculiar number. “Either way I’ll come with you / Understand me, comprehend it / I just want to know the truth.”

Roosevelt also premiered the video for “Adrenaline,” which was directed by Sean Brown. The retro-themed video finds Roosevelt playing a blue electric guitar outside of a West Coast-styled home. He later joins friends at the poolside for laughs and vibes.

On July 20, Roosevelt will continue the EP rollout with “Blinding My Way,” the second single. He will premiere its accompanying visual, too.

Before signing to Def Jam, Roosevelt received artist nurturing from producer Hit-Boy under his Hits Since ’87 label.

Alex Da Kid Releases ‘Go 2.0’ Featuring Jorja Smith, H.E.R. and Rapsody

Alex Da Kid’s “Go” gets revamped. The Emmy and Grammy-winning producer has released a “2.0” version that features sultry vocals from Jorja Smith. Leaving the warm sounds of H.E.R. and beast mode rap stylings of Rapsody alone, Smith flawlessly inserts her calm voice on the third verse.

“I know I owe it to you / To speak the same way, I hate drinking,” she sings in a slow and deliberate tone. “It all pours out when I’m on my own / Dangerous alone, can you just take me home.”

The updated version comes from a joint deal Alex Da Kid sparked with IBM and Spotify. The original recording of “Go” hit online in mid-May and has gained a lot of attention for London-based producer Alex Da Kid.

Listen to The Internet’s Two New Songs: ‘Come Over’ and ‘La Di Da’

The Internet is back with a wave of new music. The Grammy-nominated band has released two new songs — “Come Over” and “La Di Da.”

Similar to an Ike and Tina Turner-esque song, “La Di Da” hears Syd leading the funk-inspired groove as star guitarist Steve Lacy inserts his frigid vocals during the hypnotic chorus.

“I’m draped in designer, wage with the lineup / Face it, I’m out of your league,” sings Syd on the dismissive track. “No, I’m right beside you, talk, I ain’t try’na / Get back, I’m rollin’ away.”

“Come Over,” which has an accompanying visual, expounds on someone who leaves their lover on read receipt after initiating a late night visit.

Syd commented on the driving force behind the song. “There’s a girl in L.A. That’s my homegirl. But she be acting like she don’t want me to come over sometimes and I be like, ‘Damn,'” she said to Genius.

“La Di Da” and “Come Over” will be featured on The Internet’s fourth album Hive Mind, a follow-up to 2015’s Ego Death. The band’s new album will be released on July 20.

Matt Martians, The Internet’s producer, coined the album title. “If you google what ‘hive mind’ means, it’s basically a collective ego, a collective mind,” he said on Sway in the Morning. “You know, when people are together they have a collective mindset. And I think when we’re together we all have a common goal, and we move in the same direction.”
