Drake, "Wu-Tang Forever"
Drake pays homage to the iconic rap group on this latest leak from his upcoming album, Nothing Was the Same. Heavy on the lethargic synths and smug lyrics that have become a staple for the artist, “WTF” hypnotizes with its haunting simplicity. Though disjointed at times, this track will certainly leave Drake fans satisfied and nostalgic for So Far Gone days.
Keith Urban feat. Miranda Lambert, "We Were Us"
One-third country twang (forged in the backwoods of…New Zealand), one-third infectious chorus, and one-third Miranda Lambert, this new single from Keith Urban’s latest album is about as uplifting a country jam as you will find out there today. The vocal chemistry between Lambert and Urban is undeniable. Expect to hear this song at most tailgates from here on out.
Britney Spears, "Work Bitch"
Britney’s back again, but based on her new single “Work Bitch,” it’s not clear that’s a good thing. Spears continues to mask her lack of vocal ability with a faux British accent in this EDM-esque ode to hard work. If nothing else, as one iTunes commenter noted, “Work Bitch” is “a great song for working out!”
