Video: Talib Kweli – “Outstanding” ft. Ryan Leslie


With a new album called Prisoner of Conscious coming soon, Talib Kweli recently released a video for his most recent single, “Outstanding” featuring Ryan Leslie both singing and rapping. The video for the pop-leaning tune shows the gentlemen living large and partying in a giant home nestled amongst the trees. With beautiful women, of course.

Video: Wild Belle – “Backslider”


Groovy new group Wild Belle releases a third track from their upcoming 2012 album, Isles. Won’t lie, the retro hipster aesthetic of this video has kinda stolen our hearts. The song is called “Backslider” and has a smooth retro-pop feel with tropical tinges. Their other singles, “Keep You” and “It’s Too Late” also hold a similar tropical thread, mixed in with reggae, jazz, and soul vibes as well. You can watch those videos after the jump. Love the lead singer’s honeyish voice.

Hop over to the NY Times blog to read an interview with the band.

And now, carry on with your hip twisting and what not.

New Track: Ayah – “Live The Life”


Oh em gee, squeeeaaalll! Love love love this new track by our gal Ayah. Taking us back to that true blue 90s R&B, giving us some Zhané vibes. Listen to “Live The Life” below and then join us in the incessant repeating spree. To note, Ayah recorded this back in 2007 but seemingly felt inspired to dig out and share something from the vaults – so awesome when artists decided to do that!
