Jake&Papa Release ‘All The Way’ Featuring AD

Jake&Papa are looking to take over the summer. The duo joins forces with West Coast rapper AD for a lit new song called “All the Way.”

With production led by Bankroll Got It, Hdezzzy & DJ Luney Tunez, the singing pair are pulling out all the stops to go ‘all the way’ with a special lady. AD states his interest claim as he raps and grunts like Rick Ross.

Jake&Papa revealed the writing motive behind their latest tune. “‘All the Way’ is about laying it all on the table and giving the person on the receiving end the chance to either take it or leave it,” they said in a joint statement. “Sometimes skating around subjects or playing hard to get is endangering the vibe. The feeling right here is simple & plain… there’s no point in going anywhere at all if we can’t go all the way.”

“All the Way” is the second release of the summer for Jake&Papa. The twosome just released “Back to the Future” featuring Quincy White. Jake&Papa promises to keep “giving you jams all summer.” Stay tuned.

VanJess put their man in the driver’s seat on their new song titled “Control Me.”

On the bass-heavy track, produced by IAMNOBODI, the sister duo experience conflicting feelings on whether to let their dude run the show or not.

“Control Me” comes behind a parade of previously released songs: “Through Enough,” featuring GoldLink, “Addicted” and “Touch the Floor” featuring Masego. All tracks will be featured on VanJess’ debut album, Silk Canvas, due on July 20 via Keep Cool.

The LP includes production credits from Kaytranada, Da-P, IAmNoBodi, Scribz Riley and Jay Kurzweil, to name a few.

Ciara Returns with Upbeat Single ‘Level Up’

Ciara is back! The 32-year-old singer has released her new single titled “Level Up,” which samples DJ Telly Tell’s “Fuck It Up Challenge.” Produced by J.R. Rotem, the uptempo record is about knowing your worth and never settling for less.

“I just keep elevating, no losses, just upgrading / My lessons, made blessings, I turned that into money / Thank God I never settled, this view is so much better / I’m chilling, I’m winning, like on another level,” Ciara sings in the first verse.

Along with her new song release, Ciara also premiered the official video. In the dance-heavy clip, choreographed by Parris Goebel, Ciara and her dancers (The Official Royal Family) bring their A-game as they perform intricate moves in a vacant building.

“Level Up” is the first single from Ciara’s upcoming seventh studio album that will release on Beauty Entertainment/Warner Bros. Records. The album is the follow-up to 2015’s Jackie, which included her platinum single “I Bet.”

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.
