Premiere: Anthony Flammia Drops New Single "Top Of My Lungs"

The pain-filled R&B track is set to lead Flammia's upcoming album F.L.A.M.M.

After a fizzled partnership back in 2010, R&B singer Anthony Flammia has re-linked with Solomon Sobande to begin working on the rollout for his debut album, F.L.A.M.M. Today, Flammia joins VIBE to premiere his new single "Top Of My Lungs" to promote the upcoming record.

"Top Of My Lungs" is a pained-filled track that follows the R&B singer's effort to navigate the multitude of emotions that come with a toxic relationship. With his relationship crumbling to pieces, Flammia bares all on the 808-laden track, acknowledging his faulty participation in the two-way partnership.

"It seems like every time I come I end up leaving screaming at the top of my lungs/ and my heart can't take it anymore/ I keep on leaving screaming at the top of my lungs," Flammia sings on the hook.

Flammia has been in the music scene since 2015 when his project The Looper landed him a string of features including his verse on "A Spike Lee Joint" off Flatbush Zombies' 2016 release, 3001:A Laced Odyssey. Having met Sobande eight years prior, it wasn't until the emo-rap manager launched a joint label deal with Republic Records in April to create Sounds Music Group that he signed Flammia and restored the partnership the two first started back in 2010.

“At the time, right when X and Ski Mask were blowing up, I got Flammia a deal at E1 just because I felt like I needed to do something for him,” Sobande tells Billboard. “But it wasn’t the right deal. I ended up giving them back their money, and basically just buying him out of the deal. As soon as I could, I signed him to Sounds Music Group.”

Anthony Flammia is the first R&B signee on Sounds Music Group. Congratulations are definitely in order. Check out "Top Of My Lungs" below.

Family Ties: Skip Marley Links With Damian Marley In Visuals For "That's Not True"

Skip Marley blends family and his passion for music in the video for "That's Not True," taking fans on an organic journey throughout Miami's Little Haiti area.

Directed by Andrew Sandler (Chris Brown, Ella Mai), the 22-year-old drives through his city while chatting with locals as some take part in slamming dominoes and others simply living life. Released last month, "That's Not True," keeps true to the 22-year-old's mission of love and understanding as the song highlights strife and disasters that have become normal in society. From infidelities to self-doubt, the grandson of Bob Marley reminds us all to move with love and grace.

Marley's uncle and Grammy-winning artist Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley drops his poignant verse, with the two splitting the screen showing just how well they're carrying out the Marley legacy.

The younger Marley has steadily generated heat for himself. After scoring a major hit with Katy Perry for "Chained To Rhythm," in 2017,  Marley released the critically acclaimed single "Lions." He's also paid homage to his grandfather with a touching cover of "Johnny Was" for the Idris Elba film, Yardie.

Marley has been keeping himself busy, exploring all aspects of his artistry from shooting the clip for this song, to most recently performing at the Kaya Fest on April 20.

There's no telling what else Marley has up his sleeve, but it's safe to say that the reggae genre is in good hands.

Wu-Tang Clan To Drop EP Inspired By Documentary

On Friday (May 10), Wu-Tang Clan fans were treated to a gift from the iconic rap group in the form of their new docu-series, Of Mics and Men. Now, Wu-Tang lovers will be getting even more from the '90s group but this time it'll be new music. The collective took to their Twitter account to announce the release of their upcoming EP, Of Mics and Men, inspired by the docuseries.

"You've seen episode 1/Wu documentary by now (and if you haven't, what were you doing last weekend), now listen to the music inspired by the series. On Friday, we're coming with a new Wu-Tang EP from @36ChambersALC and Mass Appeal, so let your boss know you'll be in late to work."

You've seen episode 1/ Wu documentary by now (and if you haven't, what were you doing last weekend), now listen to the music inspired by the series. On Friday, we're coming with a new Wu-Tang EP from @36ChambersALC and Mass Appeal, so let your boss know you'll be in late to work.

— Wu Tang Clan (@WuTangClan) May 14, 2019

The EP should fit nicely with Wu-Tang's four-part docuseries. The last time the group dropped a project was in 2017 with the release of The Saga Continues. In 2019, the rap group has already released their docuseries, their EP drops this Friday, but they also have a 10-episode Hulu series inspired by them on the way, with rapper Dave East portraying a character similar to Method Man.

YG, Eminem, PnB Rock, And More Friday Releases You Need To Hear

Spring is here, and with May showers comes a boatload of new music releases. From YG to Eminem, Logic, and Pnb Rock, we've compiled a list of the best Friday releases you have to stream. Check them out below.

PnB Rock – TrapStar Turnt PopStar

After months of hints, PnB Rock has finally released his sophomore project, TrapStar Turnt PopStar. The album is a double-disc project, consisting of 18 songs and features guest appearances by Tory Lanez, Diplo, Lil Skies, A Boogie, Lil Durk, Tee Grizzley, and the late XXXTentacion.

In a recent interview on "The Cruz Show," PnB discussed the differences between a trap star and a pop star. He suggests  the "trap star side," which occupies half of the album's focus, is about "pain and struggle." By contrast, he said "the popstar side is me having fun. I'm not stressing out, I'm waking up in foreign places."

Listen to TrapStar Turnt PopStar below.

YG Ft. Tyga & Jon Z  – "Go Loko"

As the due date for his forthcoming album approaches, YG joined forces with Tyga and Puerto Rican artist Jon Z for their new collaboration, " Go Loko." The song arrives just one week after his controversial music video for "Stop Snitchin'," which depicted YG as a slave.

"Go Loko" is likely a single from YG's forthcoming album, 4REAL 4REAL. The album was originally scheduled to drop in April 2019, but was pushed back in the wake of Nipsey Hussle's death.

Listen to "Go Loko" below.


Logic & Eminem – "Homicide"

Logic and Eminem teamed up for their new single, "Homicide." Logic and Em push each other on their first song together, trading double-time flows and boastful multisyllabic rhymes. The sparse, straightforward beat was produced by Bregma and Shroom. The song ends with audio of comedian Chris D'Elia's hilarious impersonation of Eminem's rapping, which went viral in early 2019.

The single arrives three months after Logic opened up Eminem's concert at Aloha Stadium. The song is the third release from Logic's Confessions of a Dangerous Mind project, following the album's title track and "Keanu Reeves."

Listen to "Homicide" below.

Iggy Azalea – "Started"

Iggy Azalea is back with a new single. "Started" is the second track to be released off of her long-awaited sophomore album, In My Defense.  In preparation for the new music drop, Iggy teased a series of stills and video clips of her dressed in outrageously luxurious ensembles. In My Defense serves as a follow-up to 2014's The New Classic.

Listen to "Started" below.

Bhad Bhabie Ft. Megan The Stallion  – "Bestie (Remix)"

Bhabie Bhabie has enlisted Megan The Stallion for the "Bestie (Remix)," and it sounds like a banger. The song originally featured Kodak Black, but Meg definitely put some much-needed, H-town flare on the track. A music video for the version Kodak was on was also released in Mar. 2019, which included a cameo from DMX.

Listen to "Bestie (Remix) below.
