The Weeknd Remixes Lorde's 'Royals'

Reblogged from

16-year-old New Zealander Lorde released The Love Club EP back in March. It's five incredibly catchy and original pop songs layered with her own vocal harmonies, that sounds more mature than her teen years. The LP's standout track "Royals" is even something Obama could get down with, as it smacks down the youth's obsession with wealth and celebrity while name checking Beyonce and Maybachs. "But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom," Lorde sings on the track. "Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room/We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams/ But everybody's like crystal, Maybach, diamonds on your time piece/ Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash/ We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair." The Weeknd was seemingly affected by the track's poignant delivery and decided to give it a remix. He mostly adds his R&B oohs and ahhs to the original plus some more dreamy production. Listen to the "Royals" remix below and be on the lookout for a rising star named Lorde. The Weeknd drops his debut studio album Kiss Land on Sept. 10.

Pioggia di nuove entrate nella USA Chart degli album, rinnovata quasi completamente. Nei singoli tripletta canadese, sale Drake ed entra Shawn Mendes.

I singoli più venduti negli Stati Uniti hanno sempre lo stesso re, ed è The Weeknd con The Hills: impossibile spodestarlo dalla numero uno, tanto che persino Justin Bieber con What Do You Mean resta placido alla numero due. Terzo, in risalita, è Drake con Hotline Bling, per una classifica che vede un interessante e inedito podio...

I can't believe this lineup exists

I only heard about CRSSD fest for the first time last week (actually second, long story) and booking a hotel in San Diego isn’t cheap. Plus flights are ungodly now, so Road Trip! I would’ve given up on this much hassle a long time ago (a week), but look at this lineup.

I’ve gone to a half dozen festivals this year and all of ’em combined don’t add up to what CRSSD has got. Zhu and Bonobo right there makes me there. It’s not really an option after that.

But if you’re not convinced of...

giovedì 8 ottobre 2015

Il singolo di The Weeknd è stato pubblicato lo scorso maggio ma solo ora è arrivato in cima alla classifica americana.

Quando si dice il diesel. The Hills, il primo estratto da Beauty Behind The Madness di The Weeknd, è stato pubblicato lo scorso maggio per promuovere l'album. Praticamente asfaltato dal grandissimo successo di Can't Feel My Face, hit che ci ha accompagnati tutta l'estate, The Hills è rimasto in secondo piano per sfogare tutta la sua potenza dopo la stagione calda: primo in classifica...
