The Weeknd will release his Trilogy series and in recent weeks we've seen momentum growing with both videos and new tracks appearing online. To keep the flame well and truly alight he's now let loose a video for the Thursday featuring track "The Zone" along with a little help from Drake. The clip was directed by Abel himself and you can enjoy it up at the top.
Trilogy drops next week on the 13th of November and comes wrapped up with three brand new tracks. You can hear another new one titled "Valerie" over here (it leaked last night!), with the other new cuts available here.
Drake and The Weeknd's atmospheric track "Crew Love," with its sprawling wave synths and soulful piano notes, has been remixed by Manchester mastermind Star Slinger. The UK producer's take on the song is something far removed from the sound of the original, as the soulful soundscape has been swapped out for a more quick-paced rhythm and club-friendly percussion. Download and stream the remix below.
Earlier we threw up the download link for Rick Ross' new mixtape Rich Forever and now we have the official video for the track "Stay Schemin'" from aforementioned mixtape. The video sees cars I could only dream of owning taking centre stage as Drake and French Montana lend a helping hand to the Ross track. Peep the MMG men at the top doing their thing. Anyone wanna throw a Maybach my way? Drake? Ye? Anyone!?
We've had our fair share of Mixtapes already this year and we're only into week 2! Rick Ross just dropped his Rich Forever mix that features guest spots from Drake, Diddy, Nas and John Legend, nice. It will keep fans busy as we await the release of his delayed album God Forgives, I Don’t. You can download your own copy via LiveMixtapes. Happy Monday!
Ear Milk points towards a nice sounding Drake remix from Montreal-based duo Love Thy Brother. They've put their personal touch on the Take Care track "Crew Love" making it more than a little different upon first listen. See what you make of the throwback below.
Today, BBC Radio One held a special Florence & The Machine Live Lounge session in which she played a number of her hits but as we know by this point, the live lounge can result in some awesome covers. Today was no different and whilst in the studio Florence covered Drake's "Take Care" for the listeners and viewers who were watching online. The ever reliable Disco Naiveté was on hand to rip the performance and below you can stream her take on the Billboard topping track. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
UPDATE: After the jump you can watch Florence & The Machine doing this cover. The joys of the internet!
It's fair to say the internet has covered just about every base regarding Drake's album Take Care, not to mention his late night performances of this very track. This full band rendition of "Headlines" is a little different though and was part of the entertainment at this years American Music Awards. It's cool to see/hear the song in this light and I have to say, the album is growing on me day by day. Give the performance a watch for yourselves at the top to see it does the same for you.
