Dido “End of Night” (Cedric Gervais remix)

Haim “Falling” (Leonard Friend Remix)
R&B/synthpop wunderkind Leonard Friend gives us the ultimate rewind remix with his 80’s infused revamp of Haim’s “Falling”. On top of the fresh new sound, the accompanying video is a must-see showcasing our favorite action stars in the most flexible (dance) positions. Own it.

Blaxx “Sex & Drugs”
Sex, drugs, and EDM make up the holy trinity for the modern day raver, and Italian producer Blaxx delivers that package in his recent mix, boasting a funkalicious beat with synth-laden lounge melodies. Own it.

Keys N Krates “Treat Me Right” (Thugli Remix)
If you were out enjoying the summer rays on Friday, then you might’ve missed this fresh, new remix Dim Mak dropped last Friday. The fast trending Keys N Krates track “Treat Me Right” gets a rough n’ dirty makeover from THUGLI, tricked up with a higher BPM rate and bass claps.

Kennedy Jones “Came To Party”
Coming out your speakers is the latest trap attack from Mad Decent in the form of DJ Kennedy Jones. His new bass heavy single “Came To Party” is so manic, it even sports its own genre dubbed ‘rodeo donk trap’ so be sure to strap in for this bumpy ride.

Slam Skillet “Rachis (Mixtape)”
Better than a track, we've got a mixtape this week. After premiering his new EP Rachis, Slam Skillet serves up a DJZ.com mixtape that explores the vast range of musical influences found in the EP, proving that trap is still the reigning genre in the EDM realm.

Dizzee Rascal “Goin’ Crazy” feat. Robbie Williams
If you thought Macklemore rocked vintage swag in “Thrift Shop”, then check out what they have going on across the pond with British rapper Dizzee Rascal and his new video “Goin’ Crazy”. These guys not only look incredible in your grandpa’s clothes, but they rock a supped up scooter on top of it. The video is too good to pass up on this one. Own it.

Usher Releases "Peace Sign" Video Off Of 'A' Project

Given Monday's (Dec. 10) debate about who's the king of R&B, one of the names that steadily popped up in the conversation has stepped onto the scene. In a visual promotion for his A soundscape, Usher released the video for "Peace Sign" alongside producer Zaytoven.

Previously, the pair hit the studio for an eight-track project that pays respect to their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. It was surprise-released in October and effortlessly fuses ATL's aura on the soundscape. Now, the "Peace Sign" video puts that decision into cinematic motion.

"Atlanta offers a certain attitude and a sauce that I can't explain, and it is a little bit in 'No Limit,' it is a little bit in 'TNT.' I'm literally talking sh*t, man," he said in an interview with The Fader. "I'm popping sh*t that I haven't popped, like really ever. And that's what being in the moment creates. When you have months and months to think about it and you begin to analyze all the people who you need to think of and what you want this entire project to work out, you'll lose certain elements of your spontaneity an incredible culture that just happens in the moment. I didn't give that space. I really was honest with the feelings, I was honest with the conversation and I was really in the moment. And I thank Zay for that."

T.I. Releases Short Film For "The Amazing Mr. F**k Up"

T.I. keeps himself accountable for his wrongdoings in the cinematic visual for "The Amazing Mr. F**k Up."

Premiered Monday (Dec. 10) on his series T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, the track featuring singer-songwriter Victoria Monet, is flipped into a 10-minute-short film. Directed by Mike Ho, the short film stars comedienne Britney Elena, Colombus Short, Woody McClain and model Denise Rodriguez.

Starting at a fancy dinner gathering among friends, things take a turn for the worst when the rapper's other partner invades the feast. On the Dime Trap cut, T.I. calls out himself for his past mistakes and deviances with acknowledgment on how he needs to do better.

"It's amazing all the sh*t I done / Such examples I've been setting for my son / All she did was stay down and have my kid / All the time just to realize I ain't sh*t," T.I. spits. In addition to the rapper flexing his acting chops, the album version of the song includes the infamous scene in ATL between Tip and Lauren London, where his character snatches a necklace he gifted for New New.

The rapper is currently closing out the year on an impressive note as it was revealed that his music has been streamed 276 million times on the music streaming service Spotify. "A modest flex to end my 18th year in this sh*t!!!! Multitudes of Gratitude!!! #NextYearWeGoBigger!!!!," the Grand Hustle emcee tweeted on Saturday (Dec. 8).

Meek Mill Is Surrounded By His Day Ones In Visual For "Intro"

Self-proclaimed "Champion of the United States" and Philadelphia-bred rapper Meek Mill delivers the official music video for "Intro" on Monday (Dec. 10).

Directed by Kid Art, the three-minute visual frames Meek's mental state as he re-enters the rap game as he continues to battle the justice system as a young, black man. Presumably surrounded by those he considers family, "Intro" retrospectively takes a look at the 31-year-old's come up as a notable rapper out of North Philly.

Juxtaposing his current lifestyle with not-so-distant memories of the trenches, the video shuffles scenes of club confetti, bullet holes, poured out bottles of Ace of Spades and dirt bikes– a presumed nod to Meek's unjust jail sentence.

"Pouring champagne 'cause all my n***s dead/ If they ain't in the graveyard, then they in the feds/ I give a f**k if that crown heavy, put it on my head" spits Meek over the instrumental to Phil Collins' "In The Air."

Last week (Dec. 2) music engineers Young Guru and Anthony Cruz spoke to VIBE about Meek's choice to sample Collins' "In The Air Tonight" on the track, stating that "Meek had this vision" to flip the classic track since he first heard it in Paid In Full and was glad to finally make it happen in a standout fashion on "Intro."

If you haven't already, be sure to take a look at the official music video for "Intro" up top.
