After a great 12 months of music, 2015 has come to a close. To celebrate, here's the top ten best songs of the year in no particular order. Enjoy more after the jump...
All My Friends - Snakehips feat. Tinashe, Chance the Rapper
British production duo Snakehips brought us this gem late into the year. With a mellow ambiance and silky vocals from Tinashe, this banger demanded to be sung-along-to with its anthemic chorus. Raise a glass to Snakehips for making loneliness sound like a good time. This song hasn't broken the Hot 100 quite yet, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't at the top of your playlist.
These trippy visuals are appropriately mesmerizing...but where's Chance?!
Well, Grammys 2015 has officially wrapped. The Sunday night (02/08) ceremony honoring achievements in music featured a surprising amount of ballads. From Madonna to Ed Sheeran, almost everybody who's anybody in music was there. Missed the show? Don't worry, I've got ya covered. Check out my recap of some highlights below:
With winter winding down, college students everywhere are about to enter the dreaded “spring slump” - that uneventful season when summer seems out of reach. Below is a compilation of the top ten songs (in no particular order) that’ll help you power through school by singing about it.
School Spirit - Kanye West
How can you go wrong with Yeezus? With The College Dropout, Late Registration, and Graduation, it’s clear Mr. West has an affinity for college themes. The “Runaway” rapper relates personal stories of growth by relating himself to students like us. We can always count on Yeezy when we’re feeling misunderstood.
On Thursday Night (01/25), Lady Gaga posted new images on Instagram of herself in the studio with Cash Money producer RedOne. Yep, the same RedOne behind the success of smashes like "Starships" and "Dance Again". Peep the list below for four reasons why you should be excited that these two hit-makers are back at it in the studio.
Upcoming "Fancy" rapper Iggy Azalea and R&B singer Keyshia Cole released their version of Diana Ross's 'I'm Coming Out" in honor of "The Other Woman", a Nick Cassavetes film due out in April. Fans got a taste of the track 3 weeks ago when producer Irving Lorenzo (more famously known as Irv Gotti) gave his Instagram followers a sneak preview at the track being mixed in-studio.
"The Other Woman", starring Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann, seems to be banking on an appeal to an urban music audience to fill theater seats. Added in with the fact that Nicki Minaj is poised to make her on-screen debut as a minor character in the film, it's clear that big names and star-power is the key to "The Other Woman"'s marketing campaign. Check out Keyshia and "I-G-G-Y"'s lady anthem below.
UPDATE: The track seems has been taken offline. Seems as though the song didn't do as well as hoped, so it was scrapped as a single for the two altogether.
