Banks – Goddess.

R&B singer Banks’ debut album, Goddess, was released this week to much anticipation. We’ve been fans of Banks for a while, along with the rest of the internet, due to her soulful covers of The Weeknd and Aaliyah. “Beggin for Thread” and “Alibi” are newer tracks to note although the parts..

The Weeknd – Often.

The Weeknd’s new joint isn’t the sordid epic that was “Kiss Land” but it’s a spicy one.

KD Young Cocky – Bad Bitches.

Another gem from the ChiLanta tape is Chicago songwriter KD Young Cocky’s moonlight serenade to the bad bitches in his life. Pour another glass of champagne and hold her close, but maybe don’t play this for her. Sphere: Related Content

The Weeknd – Drunk in Love (Remix).

The only regret that we have about this cover is that it took us 10 days to hear about it. As much as we love Queen Bey (and don’t we all worship at the altar of Bey?), we might love The Weeknd’s take on “Drunk in Love” even more. Can we say that? Too late...
