After unveiling “Lens” and the “Lens” remix featuring Travis Scott on his Blonded Radio show on Beats 1, crooner Frank Ocean has come through with another single in the form of “Slide On Me,” this time with Young Thug.

Various artists – “Grow House Soundtrack”
DJ Pooh’s new movie, Grow House, has a who’s who of Hip Hop artists contributing to its soundtrack, including Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Xzibit and Devin The Dude. One of the project’s standouts, “420 (Blaze Up),” finds two of Hip Hop’s most proficient smokers, Devin The Dude and Snoop Dogg, putting their signature vocals on the bass-heavy beat.
Desiigner – “bill nye the science guy interview”
Desiigner somehow ended up on the Netflix series Bill Nye Saves The World, with Bill Nye the Science Guy, where he was schooled on climate change and global warming. Alongside model Karlie Kloss, the G.O.O.D. Music artist learned more than he probably expected.
Young thug – “All the time”
Although it’s unclear where the song comes from, Young Thug has dropped a new track called “All The Time” in visual form. Directed by Daps, the video is complete with the usual suspects — scantily-clad women, stacks of money, a mansion and even an exotic pet.
gorillaz – “The apprentice”
British supergroup Gorillaz is four days away from releasing its fifth studio album, Humanz, which is expected to arrive on Friday (April 28). The masterminds behind the band — Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn — have shared the seventh single from the project, “The Apprentice,” a funked-out track featuring Rag‘n’Bone Man, Zebra Katz and RAY BLK.
offset – “monday”
Migos rapper Offset has broken from his pack to drop a new single, “Monday,” which is produced by OG Parker and Deko. It could be a sign of what’s to come as Offset jumps on more and more tracks on his own.
t.i. – “us or else (Trailer)”
phlow – “mp3”
Nigerian MC Phlow has resurfaced with a new video for “MP3,” which also finds Mz Kiss, Pryse and Pasha throwing in their two cents. Produced by Teck-Zilla, the Hip Hop offering has a hint of Caribbean flavor and soulful jazz elements. The RCube-directed video is apparently inspired by the legendary Chuck D’s quote, “The Super MC is the one that can spit in more than two languages,” according to a press release.
Demrick f. euroz – “Still movin”
Demrick has continued his weekly series with the next installment, “Still Movin,” which also features Euroz. Produced by Reezy, the track is intended to serve as part of a summer soundtrack.
