Prince had us grooving last week with the first single “Clouds“, but today the Purple One releases the piano driven medley for the last release “U Know”. Do remember Prince is releasing a brand new album on September 30th, titled Art Official Age as well was an album with 3rd Eye Girl called PLECTRUMELECTRUM.

Maroon 5′s latest single “Maps” is currently tearing up the charts peaking at #6 on Billboard. The “Sunday Morning” rock collective has enlisted Big Sean for the official remix, which is just as great as the original. Glad to see Maroon 5 still create magic.
Been awhile since we’ve heard music from singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and arranger Lenny Kravitz. A very long time, I still go back and listen to his classic albums from time to time. On September 23rd, 2014, Lenny will be releasing his upcoming tenth album titled, Strut via Roxie Records, Inc. Here’s the first single amply titled “Sex”, and is very Lenny Kravitz. By that I mean, guitar driven, and loud drums. Also check the very unsafe for a man’s eyes artwork after the break.
Check out the single after the break. Pre-order here.
Being a big John Mayer fan, why wouldn’t I post his music on the site. After covering this track during his international tour this past spring, John Mayer releases the official studio version of The Dream penned “XO”. First time hearing this, and i’m impressed with this one, I might like it better than Bey’s version.
Check out the acoustic version of “XO” after the break.
Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has been nabbling in the hip hop scene, first with Lupe Fiasco and now he’s working with the likes of Pharrell. He debuts the first single which is produced by Pharrell titled “Sing”. The British singer currently working on a brand new album, X which will be released in June. I think this is a great record, and great choice for a first single.
