Yeezus season is quickly approaching! Along with “Only One” and Rihanna’s “FourFiveSeconds”comes a new track titled “All Day”. Last summer, Kanye fans a snippet of the track hit the web exciting fans for what was to come! Unlike his latest hit “Only One”, “All Day” is an upbeat, stadium-filling. post-Yeezus track featuring Allan Kingdom & Theophilus London! “I think just my usual pattern is like that. It’s like a pendulum. The pendulum gains momentum by swinging in the other direction. Even lyrically, I think about certain lines that I say on my new single, which is called ‘All Day,’ that usually Jay would say, but Jay’s not on there,” he explained upon the track in an interview with ‘GQ Magazine’ last summer.

After teaming up with boyfriend Lil Wayne for tracks like “Start A Fire” and “Drunk In Love (Remix)” Christina Milian makes her return to music with her new single “Rebel”. The smooth, baby-making track is about making love to someone that you you care about. “Let’s get it on tonight! It’s only me and you”, she croons over the seductive production.
