The Saturdays: ‘Disco Love’ Single Premiere!

Following their performance at this year’s V Festival over the weekend, The Saturdays premiere their brand-new single “Disco Love“! The track serves as the third official single off their upcoming fourth studio album, which is scheduled for release this Fall in the UK via Polydor Records. Written and produced by StopWaitGo, “Disco Love” is a pleasant little pop jam with a sparkling 80s dance vibe, a catchy hook, and a fantastic Britney Spears reference. While “Gentleman” may have not been the big hit the girls were hoping for, “Disco Love” has all the right ingredients to score them another #1 on the UK Singles Chart – I love it! What do you guys think?

This is a rare, private appearance for Drake. He recently shut down his hometown of Toronto for the fourth annual OVO Fest. Drake brought out Kanye, J. Cole, Diddy and Ma$ e among a slew of guests for the sold out concert. He spoke to MTV News about possibly signing Ma$ e one day to his new OVO Sounds label. “Funny enough, me and Ma$ e have just been talking about what the future holds, about what he wants to do,” Drake revealed. “And anything is possible man. I told Ma$ e, ‘You’re Ma$ e, at the end of the day so I don’t think you should end up on anybody else’s label.”

Ma$ e or not, Drake also is working on making Toronto a music destination with OVO Sounds. Oliver El-Khatib, Co-founder of OVO had this to say: “We’re proud to assist the city we love foster music talent and to promote Toronto as a premier music destination. The OVO Fest grows every year, and shows the potential of what’s possible for Toronto. This is an thrilling development and we’re thrilled to assist in every way we can.”

Big Daddy Kane Salutes Kendrick Lamar For ‘Control’ Verse

By Elijah Watson with reporting by Sway Calloway

Legendary MC Big Daddy Kane sat down on “RapFix Live” last week and shared his thoughts on Kendrick Lamar’s controversial verse on “Control.” As you’re probably aware of, Kendrick’s “Control” verse blew up after the rapper shouted out his peers J. Cole, Drake, A$ AP Rocky and many others, only to warn them that he’s, “trying to make sure your core fans never heard of you n—-s.”

Kane, whose been a part of the rap game long enough to see rappers like Kool Moe Dee and Busy B battle each other, was concerned that the verse would only lead to a “Twitter battle.” “I was basically trying to say to the MCs out there that really believe that they’re real MCs, and they’re in it for the sport, if you’re upset with what dude said then respond. That’s what an MC does,” Kane said.

Kane also reminisced about sharing raps with Kool G Rap at two in the morning, and being pitted against fellow legendary MC, Rakim. Although a mutual friendship with Eric B., Rakim’s longtime DJ and producer, stopped Kane from ever spitting at Rakim, a rap line written by the latter almost changed that.

“This girl gave me a photo–I remember it like it was yesterday–and it said, ‘Dear Kane, I wanna set it off and get R.A.W. Ain’t no half-steppin’ because I’m gonna break your wrath in half.’

So I handed the picture to my man Ant Live who’s Eric B.’s brother. And he asked her about it and she said, ‘Yeah, Rakim got this song called ‘Break The Wrath In Half.’ You ain’t heard it? Eric B. played it for me’…So, we laughing about it, but at that point Ant was like ‘Yo, this is just getting too out of hand man. Y’all really need to talk.’

So, Ant Live called Rakim and he told me that he had a line he was gonna put in a song, but he took it out. And I told him I had something that I was gonna put in a song, but you know I took it out. And we just squashed it and left it alone.”

Recently, the two MCs appeared together at a Summer Stage event celebrating Kool Herc’s 40th Anniversary in hip-hop.

Amelia Lily: ‘Truth or Dare’

It’s been a few months since we last heard from Amelia Lily but thanks to the internet, a brand-new track from X Factor UK alum titled “Truth or Dare” has found its way to us. The track is set to appear on her upcoming debut album Be A Fighter, which was set to be released in July but was after postponed in order to record some new material. “Over the last few months I’ve been writing loads of new material and I’ve now decided that I need to go back into the studio and spend some more time working on my debut album,” Amelia wrote on her Facebook in July. “I want it to be perfect for you all! I will update you all on my progress, stay tuned.” Sure the delay of the album is probably due more to the fact that singles “Shut Up” and “Party Over” underperformed in the UK, but at least it’s still coming at some point. “Truth or Dare” is quite the pop stomper and I just want more!

Drake And The Weeknd Reunite On ‘Live For’

kissland

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

The Weeknd and Drake reunite for the singer’s new track “Live For” from his upcoming debut Kiss Land  due out on Sept 10. The song celebrates the swift life and swift women that the two men “live for.”

“This the sh–  that I live for/This the sh– that I live for/This the sh– that I live for/It could be what I die for,” The Weeknd sings.

The Weeknd and Drake were thought by many, to be feuding as of late. The OVOXO duo put those rumors to rest with photos of them in the studio and a joint appearance at Drake’s OVO Fest in Toronto earlier this month where they performed “Crew Love.”

The Weeknd spoke to Complex about his relationship with his hometown friend and how not signing with Drake’s OVO Sounds was not a personal diss. “But it makes sense. The thing about Drake is I told him what my decisions were going to be and he was down with it from the beginning,” he explained.

Kiss Land’s official tracklist was released today. Vibe shares that the 10-track offering features songs like “Professional” and “Tears In The Rain.”
