Featuring an incredible Drunk In Love remix from The Weeknd, new Martin Garrix, plus a hook up from Major Lazer and Sean Paul, these are the five biggest new tunes from the week.
Warning: Some of these songs contain language that some people may find offensive.
The remix, dropped to celebrate his 24th birthday, sees The Weeknd go in dark and heavy on Beyonce's recent single thanks to some very spacious synths, and sees him singing about just wanting to go on tour and drop albums.
Following a one-minute teaser video that dropped a few weeks back, Martin Garrix and Holland based duo Firebeatz have released the original mix for their new track 'Helicopter.' In less than 24 hours the follow up track to the 17-year-old DJ/ producer's number one hit 'Animals' racked up an impressive 220,000 views on YouTube.
The German house auteur's take on the track doesn't stray too far from the original but he adds a heavy bassline to the already infectious track that makes it even more dance-floor ready. It's one for a big weekend.
Major Lazer have hooked up with Sean Paul for their latest musical offering. Come On The Me is everything you would expect of a song from the trio's forthcoming album - the perfect mix of dance and reggae, resulting in a dancehall anthem. The single with feature onMajor Lazers new EP Apocalypse Soon, out 25h February.
Rick Ross has dropped a new single off his forthcoming album 'Mastermind,' making an unexpected move in song choice. Da Boss has put his own stamp on the late Notorious B.I.G's You're Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You) from his 1997 Life After Death album. Listen to Nobody below and let us know if you think Rick Ross does Biggie justice
