Don’t turn your noses up because it’s The Sats, these girls DO have talent and it’s proven here. Yesterday they graced the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge with a live version of their current banger Disco Love and a cover, a bloody brilliant cover.
Usually bands/ artists do one cover in the Live Lounge, well not The Sats. They started off with Drake’s Hold On, We’re Going Home, into TLC No Scrubs, and finished off with the classic Survivor from Destiny’s Child.
This is so so good!

Who doesn’t wanna hear Ricky Rozay do his thing over Drakes oh so sweet Hold On, We’re Going Home? Well me actually.
Ross gets all sweet boy on us and talks about how he does girls, fast cars etc etc, naw.

Nothing Was The Same has had music fans, Drake fans and Rap fans around the world going mental. It’s a solid listen. There is however the one track which really stands out, it’s called From Time and features the amazing vocal of Jhene Aiko. I made this my fave record in the world right now for the simple reason that it’s beautiful!
The soulful duo Atu & Sango have made this down beat rap track even more so in their 7 minute re edit.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted up my fave record in the world right now, the usual excuses apply – fear not, it’s back and in full effect!
So Drake has released the highly anticipated album Nothing Was The Same – Hip Hop/ Drake/ R&B fans go crazy around the world, girls dump their boyfriends because let’s be real, they aren’t Drake etc. etc.
I found people went crazy because it was Drake, forget the music, people love the man and the music second (mostly girls). After listening to the album though it’s impossible not to love the music, this is probably his finest piece of work yet aside from the debut mixtape.
From Time was the record which stood out to me from the first, second and third listen, there’s something so beautiful about it, it’s so calming and the vocal of Jhene Aiko will send chills down your spine. Listen for yourself to my fave record in the world right now from the man they call Drake.

During Podcast 153 I admitted that The Weeknd’s latest album Kiss Land has failed to ‘wow’ me. I don’t know what it is, but I hasn’t blown me away like I wanted it to.
This is the next official single featuring Drizzy called Live For.

Drake has let us hear two pieces of new music. Wu-Tang Forever and Too Much, both of which are getting me amped for the forthcoming album Nothing Was The Same.
You can download Wu-Tang Forever for free when you pre-order the album on iTunes.

The Weeknds new 10 track album Kiss Land is dropping on September 10th. On that album will be this, Live For featuring Drake. Crew Love is still one of my favourite records of recent times, well, this is no Crew Love BUT, you know this is still another special hook up…

I won’t lie to you guys, this week has been a little slow on the new music front. There is of course always new music coming into me everyday, the quality of it however is a different subject. Despite this fact, I’ve managed to find my 110th favourite record in the world right now.
This weeks track comes from Drake with his new single Hold On, We’re Going Home. This record showcases the sides I love most about Drake – emotion and a sick R&B hook. This is a catchy number, bring on the album next month!
