New Alicia!!! It was 2012 since Mrs. Swizz Beats last released her own album, she's had a couple features here and there but she's been relatively quiet for awhile. Alicia debuted "In Common" on last weekend's SNL. More and more we hear more of the Dancehall infusion in to pop and mainstream, "In Common" follows that tropical vibe. A little different from what we are used to hearing, doesn't showcase her voice too much, she's in a falsetto for most of the song, and not much piano, but the song is fire! New song and a new album has been confirmed for later this year. What do you think?
Major Lazer team up with Grandtheft to bring life to a 1985 dancehall classic from Johnny Osbourne. "Buddy Bye" gets a modern trap and hardstyle facelift. Free download too! Get it while it lasts.
It's been awhile since we heard the London duo. They've been quietly preparing for their second album which hopefully be released this spring. We have a new single "I'm in Control" featuring Jamaican artist Popcaan, thus having a nice dancefloor vibe to the new track. Hopefully this is just the first of more new music from AlunaGeorge.
