Here's the best track I've heard all day — Kenna's new single release with RJD2 off the new Imitation Is Suicide, Chapter 3 collab project (available today in full). The beat and Kenna's first verse create a rise that when the chorus hits a little after the 45 second mark, you're moved. At least I was. I'll have this heavy in the rotation, which is still possessing all of Chapter 2's songs.
“How Will It End’ is the culmination of Imitation is Suicide.” says Kenna. “This is probably the most innovative song in the series, and in order to make that kind of music you have to work with someone like RJ. He and I make alien waveforms. It’s just wherever our imagination takes us.”
“Working with Kenna on ‘How Will it End’ was like it should be – easy going, with great results,” adds RJD2. “I was surprised at first that he picked that track, cause it’s got a strange change-up halfway through, but after the fact, I realize it’s kinda right up his alley. I’m excited for folks to hear the EP, and to get some more music going in the future with him.”
It's been a great week or so of new music videos starting with the talk of em so far this week: Drake's short film for "Worst Behavior". ICYMI, the video is 10 minutes long and the song is spliced by a 5 minute comedy skit that has received quite the polarizing reaction (it is Drake, of course). While I think the skit is funny and has that dry sense of humor I enjoy, it's so long that it throws off the whole song (usually 30 seconds of something like this is ok) and is not really rewatchable. The only scene I really enjoyed in the video was the Beale Street takeover by Drake and his crew. Could have been better in my opinion, but hey, it got people talking. What did you think?
Here are a few other videos, starting below with Jhene Aiko's "The Worst". This has a dark storyline and embodies Jhene Aiko Week, as all her big-name collabs were previewed before the EP dropped yesterday. Be sure to check it out.
Future's spacey video for "Real And True" with Miley Cyrus & Mr. Hudson also premiered. And lastly, I want to close it out with Kenna's new video for "Love Is Still Alive" — that's on top of the new video set to premiere today with Childish Gambino. Browse the continually updated Videos section (as well as the Songs section) for your daily new music and keep it locked for another edition of ICYMI later today...

Childish Gambino adds a fresh verse to the already fresh "Relations", Kenna's single produced by Chad Hugo. This is the official remix with a music video on the way. Love all parties involved on this one — their sounds mix effortlessly.
I just bought Land 2 Air Chronicles II: Imitation is Suicide and it's real smooth. Cop that as well!
