Veteran R&B songstress Mary J. Blige has a few poignant words for any woman (or man) going through relationship struggles in her new song “Love Yourself” featuring Kanye West. Blige, who has recently spilt from her longtime husband, most likely has gained an infinite amount of wisdom through her experience. The track’s hook revolves around the concept of self-love, and coupled with Yeezy’s contribution, it’s got a little something for everyone. The track comes from her upcoming album, Strength of a Woman, which can be pre-ordered here. Listen to the single above.

calvin harris f. Young Thug & Pharrell – “Heatstroke”

Following “Slide,” Calvin Harris has dropped another massive single, “Heatstroke,” which finds the star power of Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande and Young Thug offering up their own contributions to the upbeat vibe of the track. Co-produced by Pharrell, it’s definitely more pop than Hip Hop, but nonetheless will most likely suck people in with the giant features.
