Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber Partner Up For Their Catchy Pop Jam “I Don’t Care”
The pair sing about how invaluable their wives are.
Bieber also mentions his struggle with anxiety in his lyrics as he sings about attending a social function while “crippled with anxiety.” He’s spoken openly about his mental health battles, even last week sharing a lengthy encouraging message on social media. “Don’t stop fighting the battle has already won,” he wrote. “Fight for what you love and who you love don’t let fear and anxiety win.”
Both Sheeran and Bieber know the formula to penning a chart-topping hit, so undoubtedly “I Don’t Care” will be a summer single that will be around long after the sunshine months are gone.
We at a party we don’t wanna be at
Tryna talk, but we can’t hear ourselves
Press your lips, I’d rather kiss ’em right back
With all these people all around
I’m crippled with anxiety
Ciara & Kelly Rowland Link Up For “Girl Gang” Anthem
The pair deliver a chanting girl power anthem.
In a recent sit down with iHeartRadio, Ciara explains that she purposefully kept Beauty Marksuptempo throughout. “In that moment it kind of felt like [being a single mother who was trying to figure out life] was a scar, but ultimately it was a beautiful thing, because I gained wisdom from it, I grew from it,” adding “My mission for my project is to inspire the world, to inject love, and make the world dance. That’s all I want to do. So, there’s a few slow songs, like two, but the rest of it, you’re moving nonstop.”
Girls just wanna have fun
No, they wanna have funds, stackin’ up revenue (Yeah)
Tryna hit it, no commitment, tell ’em hell no
He ask your favorite position, tell him CEO
Buju Banton Drops “Country For Sale,” His First Single Returning From Prison
The saga continues, Buju Banton’s “Country For Sale” applied with ease like a seasoned “Champion.”
Check the records: it’s taken Buju Banton nearly half a year to get his footing. The 45-year old reggae/dancehall artist was sentenced to 8 years for drug trafficking, without recourse. Within that period, the rare Buju bootleg would manifest itself, prolonging the anticipation for a good comeback narrative in the coming months or years.
Ironically, Buju’s successor in terms of popularity (Vybz Kartel) was also incarcerated, several years later. With two of their idols behind bars, Jamaicans certainly they were robbed of many good years of service. In truth, Buju Banton’s incarceration was in some way fortuitous characters, filling the void made by his absence. Now that he’s been returned to the Jamaican public, and Vybz is seemingly finding a way to publish material despite the circumstances of his life imprisonment, the Dancehall scene might just be entering a brand new era of prosperity. Check out “Country For Sale” and hit us with your thoughts.

Oh yeah with the right connections
You can have anything that you like
Alright then you can have anything
The Lox Rides Again On Sheek Louch’s “On That Sh*t”
Thirty years deep, The Lox is still standing as a united front.
“On That Shit” finds the Lox taking to a dark yet anthemic instrumental, Sheek sets it off with a noted sense of hunger. “I’m grown as shit, now everything I do I want some ownership,” he growls, before passing the mic to Styles P. How the Ghost still has verses in the cut remains unknown, given that he’s been delivering heat on a yearly basis. Mr. Raspy himself comes through to close it out, keeping his voice slightly restrained as he rides the instrumental; there’s a certain tension in his cadence, as if he’s about to snap at the slightest provocation. Check this one out now, especially if you’re still riding the wave of Old Head Energy from Beast Coast’s Basement Cypher.
I’m grown as shit, now everything I do I want some ownership
Fu*k chillin, you ain’t on my page I ain’t condoning it
I’m on that shit, I don’t want your bitch I just want guap
