[Songs of the Day] 2/12/14 (Feat. Common, HeadHunterz & #100Trill)

Hump Day was a slower day for a lot of big artists releasing content, allowing us to branch out a bit and see what was out there. RAC keeps things upbeat midweek with their delightfully bouncy, harmonic “Repeating Motion” featuring Karl Kling and HeadHunterz offered up a stadium-sized new track to get you out of bed in and into the polar vortex with their latest in “Breakout” with Audiofreq (“Weapons ready? Let’s dance”). Maya Vik gives us some 80s soul with her new song, “Totally Right”, MISUN keeps things tropical in the middle of the winter with “Travel With Me”. Wild Beasts tease their new album, Present Tense with a grooving, deep-bellied “Sweet Spot” while Mariah Carey adds Trey Songz to the remix of her latest hit “You’re Mine (Eternal)”.

Once again, this Midwest had a steady string of hip-hop hit the web today as well with Fred Santana strapping on an auto-tune jetpack on “It’s Only Right”, Lil Herb giving listeners some new with “Koolin” and Lyric teaming up with Caleb James for “Weekend”. The duo of #100Trill dropped the first single off their upcoming Muzik 2 Check Yo Bitch 2 EP, due out in time for Valentine’s Day with “Contemplating” and we get a new song from Frank Leone in “Night Brigade”.
