Future, The Weeknd, And More Friday Releases You Need To Hear

Here are the songs you should be listening to. 

New year, new music. Artists are kicking off 2019 with some new jams that you definitely need to hear. From Future to The Weeknd and Nomarni, here are the Friday music drops you should be listening to.

Future – "Jump on a Jet"

Future is pumping out the hits in 2019. The rapper recently dropped his latest single, "Jumping on a Jet" in preparation for his upcoming album.

Hendrixx announced that he would be releasing his new LP, THE WIZRD, which is slated to drop on Jan. 18. The album will also be accompanied by a documentary of the same name, which will likely chronicle his creative process.

Gesaffelstein ft. The Weeknd – "Lost in the Fire"

The Weeknd has joined forces with French producer Gesaffelstein for their new single "Lost in the Fire."

The song began gaining attention on the Internet after some fans suspected that The Weeknd was taking shots at Drake. "And I just want a baby with the right one/‘Cause I would never be the one to hide one," The Weeknd sings. It was assumed that the line was referring to Drake's son Adonis.

According to the lyrics on Apple Music, however, the line is actually: “I would never be the one to hurt one.”

Normani & Sam Smith – "Dancing With A Stranger"

Normani is gearing up for a pop takeover. The former Fifth Harmony member teamed up with Sam Smith for their new collaboration "Dancing With A Stranger." The smoky ballad perfectly pairs Sam's commanding vocals with Normani's lustful energy.

According to Normani, the collaboration occurred after the two just so happened to be working next to each other in a studio in Los Angeles. Of the song, Smith said that "it bottles everything I was feeling whilst juggling my personal life and touring.  It is also such a beautiful moment for me as I’m a huge, huge fan of Normani and everything she is. I’m so excited to watch her light shine."

Khlaid & Kane Brown – "Saturday Nights (Remix)"

Khalid enlists country musician and songwriter Kane Brown for the remix to his Suncity standout, “Saturday Nights.” Fans of the original song will be glad to know that the original arrangement hasn’t been touched, however, Brown tells his story in the song’s second verse, which deals with a story of a starry-eyed woman.

The El Paso, TX native released his follow-up to American Teen in October 2018, and Brown has steadily been on the rise as one to watch on the country scene.

Boogie – "Silent Ride"

Boogie is back with a new track. The Compton native recently dropped "Silent Ride." The song appears on his upcoming project, Everything's For Sale, which is slated to drop on Jan. 25.

The slow-burning track sounds like the perfect background tunes to ride down the street with. I know I'm wrong but let me slide / Uh, Yes I ain't right before I ride / Just tell the world but I'm dead inside / The ride was long, I slept for five / She got my phone, I'm petrified/ She read my text, I read her mind," he spits.

Kemba – "Deadass"

New York City’s Kemba is back from a quiet time away from the scene with his declaration of his devotion to the Big Apple, the boom-baptic “Deadass.” Introduced by Ebro who played it on his Beats 1 show, Kemba could potentially be taking this and other hits on the road during his upcoming Vibrant Tour. It kicks off on Jan. 30 in Boston, and concludes in Denver on Mar. 9.

Lil Duval is taking his newfound music fame seriously and included heavyweight Ty Dolla $ign in his new track “Pull Up.” The feel-good track is sure to get people moving, and joins “Smile” as another certified bop from the comedian. Back in December, the two teased the potential track via social media. “We just vibing to this new sh*t,” Duval said during an Instagram Live session with Ty back in December. “You already know what the f*ck going on.”

Watch Taraji P. Henson Bring The Party To The 2020 American Music Awards

What can't Taraji P. Henson do? The actress, philanthropist, and new podcast series host kicked off the American Music Awards 2020 with an energetic opening number many of us didn't know we needed. Live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Henson hit the stage with The Wiz's "A Brand New Day" and danced through other classics like Prince's "Let's Go Crazy," Jay-Z's "Dirt Off Your Shoulder, and Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage."

By the end of Cardi B's "W.A.P.," Henson's outfit changes a gold bodysuit and a slew of masked dancers by her side, let's just say Ms. Henson did that as this year's host of the annual music award show. After completing her performance before America (and a small socially distanced audience), she got powdered up and got right into it. Alright, Taraji!

Sizzla Sings From The Heart In His "Without You" Music Video

"Righteousness will always get a fight," Sizzla Kalonji once told me, "and that is only to make you stronger." That conversation took place in 1997, he year Sizzla electrified lovers of reggae and dancehall music with two landmark albums, Praise Ye Jah and Black Woman & Child. Sizzla has gone on to become one of the most prolific artists of his generation, releasing his most recent album, Million Times in September—a collection of 12 sweet love songs, touching on the sounds that made songs like "Just One of Those Days" and "Give Me A Try" so legendary.

"Beautiful people want to listen to the beautiful reggae music," Sizzla told me. "And you know reggae bashes against corruption. It’s not just a music to sing spirituality only and to make you feel good and sing love songs, conscious songs. And it’s good for social commentary, a very good music to be used for social commentary. And any little thing happen to the poor people, we’re quick to express ourselves on dancehall riddims and on the one-drop roots rock reggae riddim. And what we’re explaining and expressing is the total truth. It’s a music that can be used for expressing our innermost feelings and thoughts."

Today, VIBE and Boomshots proudly premiere the new music video from the album "Without You." Big Up Kalonji every time.

Million Times is out now on all music streaming platforms.
