Back in May, Donald Glover premiered a striking Childish Gambino music video for his new song, “This Is America.” It was an exciting teaser for a pair of lukewarm tracks that he shared in July, “Summertime Magic” and “Feels Like Summer.” My colleague Chris DeVille titled his The Week In Pop … More »
Earlier this year, ZHU and Tame Impala released “My Life,” one of the most anticipated and acclaimed collaborations of 2018. Looking to add even more intrigue to the psychedelic track, the artists have now released a stunning music video featuring none other than Willow Smith.
The video begins with Smith at the scene of a fatal car accident before flashing back to the story of her relationship with the victim. A picturesque tale of two romances unfolds, leading the timeline back to just moments before the crash.
The emotional video comes at the same time as an seven-track remix album for the heartfelt song, featuring Kyle Watson‘s dark house take on the collaboration. Artists like Just A Gent and KRANE each give the song an energetic electronic flair with their remixes, while Klangstof brings a subtle indie vibe into the mix.

Trump’s Twitter presence is … More »
Kid Cudi recently checked himself into rehab for depression and suicidal urges.

Willow Smith has been sporadically releasing music since her surprise debut Ardipithecus last year. She’s been quiet for a few months since the puzzling Michael Cera-produced one-off “twentyfortyeight 2.0,” but as pretty much everyone else who was shocked by Donald Trump becoming president-elect, she couldn’t stay quiet.

Kid Cudi has made two promises since he checked into rehab. The first was a promise that the rollout for Passion, Pain, and Demon Slayin’ would go on as planned while he was away thanks to his manager and label. The second was a vow to Drake that he would be out soon, … More »
