VIBE’s Daily Additions to the ‘Pod

1. Shanell – “Just For The Night”
This outer space synth-pop song isn’t bad while mingling at some fancy-shmancy lounge setting. Given the direction pop is going these days, we wouldn’t be surprised if this is a surprise hit.

2. Dom Kennedy – “Lately”
Troy Noka laces Dom on the production end with this one. This is simply something to knock to, on some chill shit. Oh, and word of advice: If you haven’t downloaded The Yellow Album yet, we’ll wait while you go do that immediately!

3. Sofi Green – “Freak”
Swizzy is helping curate another young talent by the name of Sofi Green. Feeling Freak?

4. Gunplay – “So Sophisticated (Remix)”
It’s still weird thinking about how this guy really sniffed cocaine on video a while back. Rock habit aside, this freestyle wasn’t a bad example of what we should expect from his Def Jam debut.

5. Ellie Goulding (feat. Tinie Tempah) – “Hanging On”
Ellie takes a soft approach at dubstep, and comes out with something that’s eerily trancing. Tinie comes through in the end to bring the song in full circle. Summed up, this is an interesting listen.
