This remix 'Who's Gonna' from his album 'Royalty' see's C Breezy sample Keith Sweet's 90s classic 'Nobody'. Singing, “Tell me who gon’ love you like me? Who gon’ touch you like me,” this is another baby-making tune.
This is the first collaboration between the two great rappers, Kanye West & Kendrick Lamar, is off 'Ye's upcoming album, 'WAVES'. Both spit mad bars over the same Ghostface Killah sample 'Ye used for 'New God Flow'.
Sigala has followed up, 'Sweet Lovin' with Dance anthem 'Say You Do' featuring DJ Fresh and singer Imani. Due to be released in March the track is a different sound than we're used to from the House Producer, sampling 'Always Be My Baby' Mariah Carey, it's guaranteed to be a big hit.

DJ Riton has paired up with singer Kah Lo to make this electronic banger. 'Rinse & Repeat' is Riton's first track since his 'Bad Guy RiRi' EP in 2014 and is a track to literally, rinse and keep on repeat.
ASAP Rocky has remixed Drake's 2013 track 'Wu Tang Forever' from the 'Nothing Was The Same' album. The rapper is also recording his next project ‘Cosy Tapes’, which is inspired by his late mentor and friend ASAP Yams.
