JMSN- "Cruel Intentions (Remix) (feat. Snoh Aalegra)"

JMSN's most recent single, "Cruel Intentions" is fire all on its own, but he just added an amazing artist to the remix. Snoh Aalegra, a Swedish artist and No I.D.'s current protégé, has been added to the song and she absolutely kills it. She's a great addition and takes the song to the next level. Her mini-album—Don't Explain— is set to drop on April 8th while JMSN's album—It Is.— will be released on May 6th.

J. Cole & Kendrick Lamar Release Black Friday Remixes Of Each Other's Songs

We have a lot to be thankful for lol. J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar have just blessed us with new music. They celebrated Black Friday by remixing each other's songs. Cole delivered a remix of "Alright" while Kendrick released a remix of "Tale Of 2 Citiez." Both rappers absolutely murdered their verses and this only increases anticipation for their rumored collaborative album. In Cole's remix, he alluded to some new music being released in February. This could be a new Cole album or this K.Dot-Cole album. Either way, I can't wait.

Cozz- "Knock Tha Hustle (Remix) (feat. J. Cole)" (Music Video)

I just recently finished listening to Cozz's album—Cozz & Effect— and it was not quite what I expected. I'd heard J. Cole's co-sign of the album on the last track of his latest album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, and figured it was finally time to move this album up in my Spotify queue. After listening to the album, it's easy to see why J. Cole signed him to Dreamville Records. Stylistically, Cozz fits in with their sound; he brings a much harder style of lyricism to their sound but yet he seems to mesh with their message in general. I'm interested to see where he goes from here. Check out the music video for the remix to Cozz's "Knock Tha Hustle" with J. Cole above. Enjoy.

Alicia Keys- "If I Ain't Got You (Kanye Remix)"

December 2nd was the 11 year anniversary of Alicia Keys' second studio album, The Diary of Alicia Keys. In honor of the anniversary, she has released a track from her vault– "If I Ain't Got You (Kanye Remix)." Kanye produced his own version of the track and it's pretty amazing. I still like the original better, but this is a great complement. Kanye did some production on the album so it's no surprise that they worked together. Head here to listen to the track; you will probably have to register for her vault. Enjoy.

Jessie Ware- "Kind Of...Sometimes...Maybe (Remix) (feat. J. Cole)"

Jessie Ware's newest album, Tough Love, was released on Tuesday and it's amazing; it's much better than her debut, Devotion, in my opinion and that album was great. Go out and get it if you're a fan of soulful, R&B music. She recently released the remix to her sultry, Tough Love song, "Kinda...Sometimes...Maybe." J. Cole adds a fitting verse to the beginning and then the song continues as normal. Check it out above and enjoy.

Rae Sremmurd- "No Flex Zone Remix (feat. Nicki Minaj & Pusha T)"

We frequently encounter those songs that we know we shouldn't like, but it's one of the catchiest things we've heard in a while. That's what "No Flex Zone" is for me, as I'm sure it is for a lot of you. The song is mad catchy and I find myself singing it all the time. Well Rae Sremmurd stuck to the script and remixed their hit to make it even hotter. Check out the remix featuring verses from Nicki Minaj and Pusha T above. Enjoy.

Beyoncé treated the world last night when she unveiled her remix to “Flawless.” The remix features a verse from Nicki Minaj, a collaboration I never thought I’d see. The song features a new verse from Bey (where she addresses the elevator incident) and a monster verse from Nicki. It was everything a remix should be. They killed it. Enjoy.

"Life Round Here (Remix)"- James Blake (feat. Chance The Rapper)

Musical collaborations are an interesting thing. A lot of artists nowadays use features simply because of the featured artist’s celebrity and what they can do for their project. But, there are times when artists collaborate just to make good music and that is what James Blake and Chance The Rapper have done here. Chance The Rapper hopped on a remix of James Blake’s ‘Life Round Here” off of his album, Overgrown. The two artists sound great together and I’d love to hear more music from them. Enjoy.
