elton john the lockdown sessions cover

Elton John went deep in his Hip-Hop bag for his new album, The Lockdown Sessions. The 16-track release features Young Thug, Nicki Minaj, Dua Lipa, 6lack, Charlie Puth, and more.

Created during quarantine, Elton John reveals making an album wasn’t at the forefront of his mind.

“The last thing I expected to do during lockdown was make an album,” Elton shared. “But, as the pandemic went on, one‐off projects kept cropping up and I’ve ended with a selection of really interesting and diverse stuff that was completely different to anything I’m known for, stuff that took me out of my comfort zone into completely new territory.

“And I realized tehre was something weirldy familiar about working like this. At the start of my career, in the late 60s, I worked as a session musician. Working with different artists during lockdown reminded me of that. I’d come full circle: I was a session musician again. And it was still a blast.”

YOu can tape into the new release below.

Maxo Kream Releases His Latest Album ‘Weight of the World’

unnamed 6

Maxo Kream has officially released his new album Weight of the World. The album is available via Big Persona/88 Classic/RCA Records. The album brings in features from Tyler, the Creator, Monaleo, A$AP Rocky, Freddie Gibbs, and Don Toliver.

“I was trying to work on the album right before pandemic hit,” Maxo Kream said to Apple Music. “I’m on tour, I’m in the UK, I just did Brandon Banks, I had a lot of s**t on. Between the pandemic, the birth of my daughter, and the death of my brother, it gave me something to rap about. It gave me another story.

“I’m a big storyteller, and sometimes it might take me a year and a half, two years, ‘cause I gotta go through shit, I gotta live life, so I can come back and give y’all folks my goddamn experience. The second day after my brother died, I was in the studio. I feel like I had to get this shit off. I don’t do internet, I don’t got no diary, so the closest thing I got to vent, or like for therapy is the booth.”

Maxo also revealed he met Tyler, the Creator at Yams Day in 2020. “He said he fucked with me, he said he heard Brandon Banks, he was in the UK with Rick Rubin, and then Rick was just jammin my shit. Tyler told me that and I was like damn, Rick Rubin fuck with my shit? We exchanged numbers, when he got to LA he told me to pull up to the studio, and the rest is just history. Me and Tyler got like five or six tracks, but that “Big Persona” was that one.”

You can hear the new album below.

Kelis Releases First Solo Single Since 2014 “Midnight Snacks”

Kelis Releases First Solo Single Since 2014 "Midnight Snacks"

Kelis is officially marking her return with the single “Midnight Snacks.” The song is the first release from the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef since her 2014 album Soul Food.

“Midnight Snacks” is a throwback to Kelis’ early career, bringing in a stripped-back, slinky sound that was first heard on her Kaleidoscope album.

A video for “Midnight Snacks” was directed by photographer/director Adrienne Raquel (Travis Scott, Rihanna, Selena Gomez); the visual came to life in a futuristic, yet retro dreamscape – a world where Black beauty, fashion, and decadence collide, inspired by the allure of the 1990s and paired with the glamour of the 1970s.

You can see and hear the new release below.

I was gonna talk about some stuff on the red carpet, so I decided to pull up anyway and let you guys know some things.”

Prior to his Roddy Ricch-assisted release, Bino Rideaux teamed up with King Combs last month for “No Makeup.” Earlier in the week, he launched his “On My Soul” Tour with two sold out shows in Los Angeles, on Friday, Oct. 1 and Saturday, Oct. 2.

As for Ricch, it has been a relatively quiet year following his hot streak during the first half of 2020. His debut album, Please Excuse Me For Being Anti-Social, was named Apple Music’s album of the year, in addition to “The Box’s,” Song of the Year award from the same streaming platform. The track also topped Billboard’s Hot 100 charts for 11 weeks.

Check out Bino & Roddy’s latest collaboration, “LEMME FIND OUT.” Bino’s upcoming album, 100 Roses, is set to drop on Nov. 5.
