First Listen: Nicki Minaj Releases A New Song Titled ‘All Things Go’

"Life is a movie / But there'll never be a sequel"

A couple of days ago, Nicki Minaj released the tracklisting for her upcoming new album The Pink Print and today she is letting us hear one of the new songs on her album in full. All Things Go has been released for our listening pleasure and as you can hear below, it is one of the slower, more introspective songs on the album. Nicki rap/sings about quite a few serious and important subjects on the track, including family, fame, money. I’m guessing there will be quite a few club bangers on the album but as you can hear below, The Pink Print will also include prettier slow jams, too. More »

From the new album 'VS. (Other People’s Heartache Pt. III)'
VS.

Bastille are readying the release of a new album and today we get to hear the collab with did with HAIM titled Bite Down. In all honesty, even tho I like some of their songs, I’m not the biggest fan of either Bastille or HAIM. BUT, I do like this new track … and it does make me want to hear more from both bands. My friend Darion attended the recent Bastille concert here in LA and he raved about the show. If they continue to put out music like this, I’m bound to become a full fledged fan. Have a listen above of Bite Down (Bastille vs. HAIM) and see if you love it.

Holiday Cheer
"Don't make me fall in love again"

Last week we got to hear a tiny snippet of Ariana Grande‘s new holiday single Santa Tell Me and today we get to hear the song in full. I must admit that I wasn’t too terribly impressed with the clip that we previewed last week but I think the song works better when you hear it in full. It’s a cute song, nothing too monumentally extraordinary … but I think it’s a nice little song that might be a welcome addition to your holiday party playlist. Have a listen, see what you think. Are you feeling Ariana‘s holiday jam?
