No Doubt front woman, Gwen Stefani, returns to the scene with her new solo-single, “Baby Don’t Lie”. Unlike Gwen’s previous pop tracks such as “Hollaback Girl” and “Sweet Escape”, “Baby Don’t Lie” is a smooth pop track showcasing Gwen’s growth as an artist. “Baby don’t lie! I need a love that stronger. If you ever give up, we’re gonna die. Baby, don’t lie!” she sings over the smooth bass lines. A video to the new track is set for release tomorrow! Do you think this ‘The Voice’ coach has what it takes to return to the pop scene? Check out Gwen Stefani’s “Baby Don’t Lie” below!
Drake makes his way to the scene with a leaked track titled “How About Now”. “How About Now” is a smooth track exploring Drake’s favorite themes of relationships and rich and famous lifestyles. The song, rumored to be off of Drizzy’s forthcoming album Views From The Six, samples Jodeci’s 1993 hit “My Heart Belongs To You”. “You probably don’t remember half the sh*t a nigga did for you. You didn’t really fuck with me way back then, how ’bout now? Cause I’m up right now and you suck right now”, Drake spits. Critics have already trashed the track saying it feels like a Nothing Was The Same cut. What do you think? Drake is currently working on his fourth studio album Views From The Six due early 2015!

Just a day after releasing “P*syy Overrated” featuring Wiz Khalifa & Future, producer Mike WiLL Made-It brings Riff Raff and “Tuesday” crooner ILoveMakonnen together for “Syrup In My Soda”. On the track, the two underrated rappers deliver interesting verses about their favorite turn-up beverage. While the lyrics aren’t the best, the production sounds great; reminiscent of Mike Will’s skills during DJ Mustard’s current reign. I’m looking forward to more music from Mike-Will! He’s a great producer! Mike Will’s upcoming mixtape Ransom is due for release soon! Check out Mike Will Made-It’s “Syrup In My Soda” ft. Riff Raff & ILoveMakonnen below!

Justin Bieber makes his return to music with a remix of Meghan Trainor’s #1 hit “All About That Bass”. On the remix, Beiber teams up with hit-making producer Maejor Ali to turn-up the old school-felt pop track. “I’m excited to bring a hood yet house twist to such a catchy song. I first put this song out as a production remix on my own. Not soon after it went out Meghan heard it, then Justin heard it, and shortly after they asked me to pull my version down so that the collaboration could happen. And that’s the dopest part”, Ali explained to Billboard. While Megan Trainor revealed the follow-up single “Lips Are Movin“, we’re still anticipating Bieber’s new work. Hopefully, this remix will put the Journals singer back on the map! Check out the “All About That Bass (Remix)” ft. Justin Bieber below!
