Nashville’s Johnny Phrank pays tribute to Michael Jackson in his latest release “Dirty Diana.” The crooner has been on our radar more than ever as he has consistently been releasing some pretty interesting tracks. Phrank’s Dirty Diana was produced by Grammy award-winning producer Willie B, who is most known for his production on Kendrick Lamar’s “Rigamortis.” Check the track out below.
After 3 years, the Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga collab has finally leaked…..and it’s nice. The track is said to have appeared on Lamar’s 2012 debut, good Kid, m.A.A.d city, but for whatever reason, didn’t make it. Gaga would have made 2 appearances on the album with “B-tch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” but after that version leaked, Lamar’s camp went the route we’re so familiar with today. Check out the track below and let us know what you think.
‘Can I’ by Drake ft. Beyoncé and Sal Houdini just leaked, and it might just be the summer season slow jam of 2015. This type of celebrity collaboration can’t be anything but steamy, and that’s exactly what it is. Although Beyoncé’s vocal majesty is sadly downplayed by just a few spoken “Can I’s” and “Baby’s”, this track is still smoldering with sex appeal and emotion. But then again, we wouldn’t expect anything less from these two.
Also featured is Sal Houdini. While he’s relatively new to the scene, the boy is singing like a pro. His vocals ooze sweetly over and in between Drake and Beyoncé’s energy to create a kind of feverish and sultry vibe that makes you savor a hot summer night.
Just listen, and you’ll know what we’re talking about..
Derek Minor is back with a new freestyle, and it is LIT. 2am In The Studio, which he actually recorded at 2 in the morning in his home studio, flows so heavy and so sweet with a classic boom bap beat, flared up by his naturally confident rhythm, and solid lyricism. The RMG MC, who’s last album, ‘Empire’, debuted at #1 on the iTunes hip-hop charts, has consistently released quality music, deepening his imprint and longevity in this industry. Minor is easily one of the “majors” we have here in Nashville, so if you don’t know him already, it’s time to get familiar.
IF YOU DON’T KNOW, NOW YOU KNOW.
