PARTYNEXTDOOR - Don’t Do It For You No More

PartyNextDoor is getting ready to release his highly anticipated P3 album next Friday (August 12), but before he does so the Mississauga crooner decides to share another presumed leak for us in the meantime called “Don’t Do It For You No More.”

Over production from Bizness Boi, Soufwest, and TH3ORY, PND croons to his lady about mending their relationship, while delivering some feel-good vibes in the process. Serving as the follow up to “Not Nice,” the track is another strong addition to PND’s steady growing catalog of hits, and all the more reason to get excited for P3 to arrive. Preorders available now on iTunes.

Saba - Symmetry

One of the most intriguing prospects out of Chicago, Saba has been active with the features but has kept a moderately low profile since he dropped ComfortZone in 2014. Today he began the rollout of his upcoming project Bucket List by premiering its lead single, "Symmetry," on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show.

 

“‘Symmetry’ is about finding your other half, or better half, even,” Saba told NYLON of the song. “They say the most beautiful people have symmetrical features, and that that’s what beauty is. I tried to take that concept and expand on it to say that symmetry in life is when everything lines up, things just start to make sense.”

 

The single is consistent with Saba's conceptual style of hip hop. It unravels over the course of several or more listens.

Phonte & Eric Roberson - It’s So Easy

Only July 22, Phonte and Eric Roberson will join to release Tigallerro — one of a couple projects we hope to get from the Greensboro rapper/singer this year. And for the first taste, 'Te and Roberson unveil the project's first single, "It's So Easy."

If you need a jolt of happiness and glee in your life — which, on weeks like this one, we all could — "It's So Easy" can be that spark. The two trade verses both singing and rapping as they speak on life's joys from their children to being able to independently release music.

If Tigallerro can bring half bliss "It's So Easy" does, July 22 and the days following will be happy times.

Tinashe - Superlove

Get ready for some “Superlove” from Tinashe.

 

The R&B songstress is still crafting her sophomore album Joyride, but in an interview with Tampa Bay radio station 95.7 The Beat, she announced that her next single “Superlove” could be out in “a few weeks.”

 

“I have new music coming too that I’m so excited about,” she said. “I’ve been working on it for awhile. The album is called Joyride. I’ve got a new single called ‘Superlove’ and I’m so excited to get it out there. I’ve been working, putting my heart and soul into this new stuff.”

 

As fans know all too well, Tinashe has been crafting Joyride for quite some time. Earlier this year, she also postponed her “Joyride World Tour” in order to finish the LP.

 

“I will be wrapping up the finishing touches on Joyride by the end of May, and will be back on the road shortly thereafter to see all of you,” she wrote in a letter about the tour postponement. “If you know anything about me, you know this was the last thing I would ever want to do.”

 

Joyride, the follow-up to her 2014 debut Aquarius, doesn’t have a release date, but Tinashe promises that it’s coming “soon.”

Cousin Stizz - Where I Came From

Cousin Stizz is just two days away from releasing his new album, MONDA. The Boston native made a name for himself last year, off the strength of his debut project Suffolk County (which if you never heard, you can download here), and it sounds like he's picking up right where he left off with this dope new leak/visual "Where I Came From."

 

The title says it all-- if you're wondering where Stizz came from or how he grew up, this video should do the trick, from drug deals to robbery. The song is just as dope as the visual component, with haunting production from Tedd Boyd to pair with Stizz's revealing bars.

 

Be on the look out for MONDA to impact July 14th. 

 

Quotable Lyrics:

I knew that one day my day'd come

How 'bout you see where I came from

Nothing on nothing I came from

Problems on problems, I ain't run

Smino - Kajun ft. Jean Deaux & Phoelix

Soulection's favorite singin'-ass rapper Smino returned this week with "Kajun," a new fried chicken-inspired track produced by his right-hand man Monte Booker that features Jean Deaux and Phoelix.. Organized around a smooth electric piano vamp, the song is warm and tender, like a juicy fried chicken wing. 

 

"Because we all kould use some good ass wings in times like these," Smino wrote of the track. "Wings what you get when you decide to rise above ya situations... how i felt the whole time writing this song."
