Music Monday - The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar, Madlib
We have lots to peak your interest this music Monday with news of Canadian RnB crooner The Weeknd's new LP entitled Beauty Behind The Madness, the video for Kendrick Lamar's stellar tune Alright and a link to stream Madlib's Mind Fusion: African Earwax (Mixtape).
The Weeknd: Announces New Album - 'Beauty Behind The Madness'With "Can't Feel My Face" continuing ascension up the charts, RnB star The Weeknd took to Twitter last week to officially announce the release of his long awaited LP entitled Beauty Behind The Madness. The album follows his 2013 full-length debut Kiss Land and any long time fans can except more forlorn lyrics and RnB hooks from the Canadian singer. Still no word yet on the full track list but we do know the LP will drop on August 28 via XO and Republic.
Kendrick Lamar: Alright - Music VideoKendrick Lamar has dropped the accompanying video to his song Alright, one of the definite highlights of the triumphant To Pimp a Butterfly. We looked at his politically charged performance of the song at the 2015 BET Award last week and the video directed by Colin Tilley is just as hard hitting. Check out the video below:
Madlib: Mind Fusion: African Earwax (Mixtape)Madlib dropped a new mixtape titled Mind Fusion: African Earwax earlier this month. The exclusive release was limited to only 30 physical copies pressed onto CD, which were then sold at the recent MF Doom x Jason Jagel "Doomsday Show" held at Rappcats in Los Angeles. Each CD was accompanied by a hand-drawn cover designed by Jagel himself showing just how exclusive the project was. Following this Madlib has dropped a mixtape which you can stream here.
