Well since there are no signs of Beyoncé releasing anything new from her upcoming album we must take whatever we can get at this point. Beyoncé has recorded an original song set to appear on the soundtrack for her new animation movie, Epic. The song is titled “Raise Up” and was written by King Bey herself and Sia who wrote Rihanna’s“Diamonds.”Hit-Boy and Chase N. Cashe produced the song. Beyoncé’s label, Columbia Records will release the song later this month.
I’m not 100% on when Beyoncé plans to drop her 1st single, but my only guess is when she wraps up the UK leg of her Mrs. Carter World Tour June 1st. That leaves the entire month of June open till she kicks off the US leg of her tour June 28th during BET’s “The BET Experience” leading into the 2013 BET Awards airing live July 1st.
In the meantime, The-Dream has recently revealed a very exciting song set to appear on his new album, IV Play. The song is titled “Turnt” and it features Beyoncé and 2 Chainz. Due to clearance issue with a sample used, The-Dream has removed his original song with Beyoncé “Fi (Fire),” which has been described as a very sexual track off the album. Well that sucks! Hopefully Dream releases the song for free so I can enjoy it or the sample gets cleared.
Gotta hand it to these two... I'm not really a fan of Wiz or 2 Chainz, but they come together for a motivational anthem off the upcoming Fast & The Furious 6 Soundtrack with "We Own It". The production helps with the build-ups creating the canvas for Wiz & Chainz to rhyme about more than weed. Wiz on the chorus sounds great and lyrically leaves us with some themes to relate to about owning the moment. Good track and a surprising *Tibs Fav. for me to start the morning.
Here's a radio rip of the new single that Robin Thicke premiered on Sway In The Morning. The song features 2 Chainz and my all time favortie, Kendrick Lamar. The will.i.am produced track has a club feel to it which will have the ladies dancing and hitting falsettos. Check it out.
One of the two trending tracks off J. Cole's new Truly Yours 2 EP. I was wondering why "Chris Tucker" was trending — I was hoping it was confirmed news of a Rush Hour 4 but a new track from J. Cole will do.
