Halsey – Alone ft. Big Sean, Stefflon Don (Music Video)

Halsey keeps her eyes wide open in the candy colored video for “Alone.” The singer arrives ready for some underground exploration at the party dubbed “A Celebration of Death” in the visually stunning clip for the remix of the song from her Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, featuring Big Sean and Stefflon Don. Both guests make appearances in the piece which is co-directed by the singer and Hannah Lux Davis, and finds Halsey strutting into frame in a golden-glittered body suit as she heads to a masquerade ball. Halsey tackles the first verse with a cinematic flair while pursuing a past lover from her “Now or Never” music video.

Surrounded by guests in flashy costumes with questionable motives, Halsey croons her way through the eclectic crowd until she spots the angelic man in the balcony. When she notices her winged ex-lover being caressed by another woman (who also has blue hair as Halsey did in the previous video,) she’s overwhelmed with emotion, and runs to a fountain to vomit. Halsey later explains via Twitter that she is “purging herself of Solis,” which is the mans name. Luckily, Big Sean is there to console her. “Let’s hit the Maldives and hide behind palm trees, little red wine, weed and a calm breeze,” the rapper spits to Halsey. “Cuz baby you’ve been living life inside a bubble…when the last time you had somebody love you?”

For the final verse, the beat breaks down and allows Stefflon to add her Jamaican flare. “You always tell me say me full of attitude, and you don’t like mi friend ‘cause she rude,” she pens to an ex-lover of her own. “Still I pull up in the Benz with tha all gold ting.” The clip ends with Halsey smiling in a rain of confetti as the lover is left puzzling over a cryptic note she’s left behind.

Snakehips – For the F^_^k Of It (Stay Home Tapes – Act 2) ft. Jeremih, Aminé

UK production duo Snakehips have quite the list of collaborators. They recruited Tinashe and Chance The Rapper for “All My Friends,” Anderson .Paak for “Money On Me,” and just last year, they teamed up with Danish pop star MØ on the emotional rollercoaster that is “Don’t Leave Me.”

Their third EP, Stay Home Tapes, drops next month and in the meantime, we have the YOLO-endorsing “For The Fuck Of It” to heighten the anticipation. The track features two more big-name vocalists, Aminé and Jeremih, who in turn drop some even more recognizable monikers including MC Hammer, Queen Vashti, Ernest Hemingway, and Tia and Tamera Mowry. Quite the crew!

The song’s music video is actually the second installment in a trilogy that began with the St Rulez collab “Cruzin.” Directed by Can Evgin, it tracks, according to Snakehips, “an Asian woman’s journey through some incredibly trippy shit.” Here’s the duo’s full explainer:

The EP is a bunch of tunes that we made after a crazy few years of touring and travelling the world. We called it Stay Home as a kinda jokey way to express all the mad stuff you experience and the bizarre characters you meet along the way, and throughout that trying to stay true to yourself. The video goes with this idea too. It’s a crazy narrative that we cooked up with director Can Evgin based on an Asian woman’s journey through some incredibly trippy shit!.

Watch it Up, let’s say, for the fuck of it.  This article originally appeared in Stereo Gum

Alison Wonderland – High ft. Trippie Redd (Music Video)

With less than three weeks to go until the release of Alison Wonderland’s new album, AWAKE, comes the ambient single “High” featuring Ohio rapper Trippie Redd. The track is accompanied by a mood-enhancing video featuring Wonderland and Trippie Redd and animation by Jayme Lemperle and Evan Red Borja.  It was self-directed by Alison Wonderland, with cinematography from Jeffrey Zoss.

Wonderland says, “It was a real pleasure to work with Trippie. It is important to vibe with an artist before we collaborate. When he heard this song, it was very organic, and he jumped in the booth and we walked out feeling that we had something special. I felt like this song had a certain spirit and wanted people to feel like they were going on a journey with us….just like when watching the music video.”

With two U.S. Gold singles already under his belt, 18-year-old Trippie Redd has been described by XXL, Mass Appeal, Pigeons and Planes, hnhh and Noisey as “rap’s next rock star.” His debut mixtape, A Love Letter to You, launched a series of viral hits: “Love Scars” surpassed 16.1 million plays on SoundCloud and 11.9 million Spotify streams in addition to appearing on playlists such as RapCaviar, Most Necessary and Liit. “Romeo & Juliet” generated 6.6 million plays on SoundCloud and 3.5 million Spotify streams. Noisey observed, “While most of his contemporaries produce gritty, bass-driven bangers, Trippie toys with melody and adds a softer element that sets him apart from the pack.”  The New York Times praised his “deep-haze vocals, ambling emotions, and slow-fade resolution” and FADER said that his “hook-making abilities and confessional writing…immediately stand out.”  This article originally appeared in Astral Werks

Sean Paul, David Guetta – Mad Love ft. Becky G (Music Video)

The talents of Sean Paul and David Guetta came together to launch “Mad Love” which also features the voice of the female revelation of 2017, Becky G.

At the beginning of the production, the subject was contemplated so that Shakira interpreted it and not the singer of Mexican descent, nevertheless, informative means assured that the pair of Piqué rejected the collaboration.

It’s been a long time since we heard anything new from Sean Paul, who has had great successes and a good number of collaborations throughout his career, and with the arrival of this theme, he paints to be a good year for his return. This article originally appeared in TeleHit

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike vs Quintino ft. Boef, Ronnie Flex, Ali B, I am Aisha – Slow Down [Official Music Video]

Supplying a second soundtrack score for one of this year’s most hotly-anticipated Belgian films – ‘Patser’, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike along with studio compadre Quintino have crafted a reggaeton infused, Dutch hip hop track that seamlessly fits the movie’s gangster narrative. Already proving to be popular across charts in Belgium and the Netherlands, ‘Slow Down’ is gathering impressive fan support and drawing on a new audience for Belgian and Dutch DJ stars.

Waxing lyrical on the hip hop cut are Dutch rappers Ronnie Flex, Ali B, Boef and I Am Aisha, who alongside the production talents of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Quintino, combine to deliver a club-jacking record. Featuring in a key segment of the movie, ‘Slow Down’ makes a distinctive soundtrack appearance in the new and third feature film from directors Adil El Arbi & Bilall Falah.

Since its release back at the end of January, ‘Slow Down’ has accumulated more than 9,5 million Spotify streams and been shazamed more than 80,000 times and these numbers continue to grow at a rapid rate!

Besides providing the soundtrack to ‘Patser’ (meaning Gangsta), brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike making an acting appearance in the movie, further extending their filmography with previous on-screen outings such as ‘Safety First: The Movie’. Recent movie news saw the announcement that Dimitri will appear in the upcoming Jean Claude Van Damme led ‘The Bouncer’, as well as George C. Romero’s ‘Rise Of The Living Dead’ – the follow up to cult-horror ‘Night Of The Living Dead’. Together, however, the brothers are no strangers to soundtracking feature-lengths either, famously remixing the original Hans Zimmer theme ‘He’s A Pirate’, which appeared as an official remix in the form of a bonus digital track on the recent ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge’ movie.

As ‘Patser’ continues to gain momentum with movie going fans, Adil & Bilall have themselves seen momentum coming from some Hollywood’s biggest studio houses which has led to the emerging Directors being signed up by Sony Pictures to oversee the third chapter in the much-loved cop film franchise Bad Boys 3 movie; which will also reunite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence on the big screen!
