Drake Removes Some Lyrics

I don’t normally post on huge famous artists but I thought this was a great move.  Drake recently released an album of his hit songs and one of them is “Jodeci Freestyle” that he did with J. Cole.  In that track, J. Cole says:

Go check the numbers dummy, that’s just me gettin’ started
I’m artistic, you n—as is autistic, retarded

Well Drake wasn’t having it and removed the lyric.  They even had to have a joint press release!  Cole apologized for being insensitive and all is safe and great in the world!

Steve Perry New Single?

Steve Perry, most known for being the lead singer of Journey, is releasing a new single. It’s off his first solo album in 25 years and the track is called ‘Sun Shines Gray’. I’ve always loved his voice and this song just makes me happy for some reason. Last year the first song off the album titled ‘Traces’ debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200.

Here’s the video for Sun Shines Gray

CW Allen – Bad Dreams

Independent Music Promotions sent me over an Artist I haven’t heard before and I have to say, I’m really enjoying his music.  This first track titled ‘Bad Dreams’ by CW Allen sounds like you are in a dream and CW is your soundtrack.  The track is from the upcoming album titled ‘The Dream Baby 2’ which is coming out on August 2, 2019.  CW says

“Bad Dreams was written right after I found out my 19 year old cousin was murdered.  I just felt like I was in a bad dream that I couldn’t wake up from.  Unfortunately this is very common reality in Chicago and my hometown Cleveland.”

I had the chance to listen to all 5 tracks and they are all worth listening to, several times.   Take a listen

OK Computer – 18 Hours of Unreleased Music

So I read in the news that someone was ransoming 18 hours of previously unreleased material from Radioheads OK Computer album. It was all recorded by Thom Yorke and the ransom was upwards of $150,000. Well nobody paid the ransom so the 18 hours of music has been released….somewhere out there (I didn’t search but it’s apparently out there).

The leaked material includes previously unreleased live-only tracks as well as short riffs and ambient snippets that never evolved into full songs.

B Boys New Song

I have to admit, I haven’t heard much of B Boys but I will now.  I like their new song ‘I Want’ and according to their press release:

“‘I Want’ was inspired by the frustration of having to demand for the things you innately deserve.  It’s about over-consumption and dissatisfaction, as well as the infinite process of personal improvement.”

Their sophomore album that this song is taken from is titled ‘DuDu’ will be released July 26, 2019
