Video: Jhene Aiko “Comfort Inn Ending (Freestyle)”

Jhene Aiko drops a visual for her no-good, low down cheating man in “Comfort Inn Ending (Freestyle).” I’ve loved this track since it popped up last year. When the beat drops between part 1 and part 2? Swooon.


Good music: Drake “Draft Day”

Drake has a crush on Jennifer Lawrence and throws shots at Chance The Rapper (and maybe Jay Z)? The rapper drops an unexpected joint called “Draft Day” fresh off his European tour. I still have no clue who Johnny Manziel is.


Good music: Float away with Jhene Aiko’s “My Afternoon Dream”

Happy birthday Jhene Aiko! My super talented girl crush drops this laid-back song as a gift to her fans. Isn’t she the bestest?

Good music: Diplo, Frank Ocean and The Clash hook up with Converse for “Hero”

Brands partner with musicians all the time but Converse has been killing it with their releases as of late (and I’m not just saying that because I live in Chucks). For the ninth installment of its Three Artists. One Song campaign, Cons hooks up Frank Ocean, Diplo and Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of The Clash for “Hero.” I’m officially obsessed with this cut, that blends doo-wop, punk and R&B seamlessly. Each artist has his chance to shine without disrupting the flow of the overall song.

I attended the exclusive press-launch for the song at Converse’s Rubbertracks studio in Brooklyn. There, Diplo, Mick and Paul spoke about the collaboration process. Frank was unfortunately M.I.A. due to scheduling conflicts. Working with Mick and Paul was a dream come true, add in Frank, it got even better,” said Diplo at the event hosted by Sway of MTV and SiriusXM. “The experience was just totally awesome.”
