[Songs of the Day] 2/17/14 (Feat. Beyonce, Kanye West, PARTYNEXTDOOR & More)

There was a huge influx of new music over the weekend, and we’re here to round it all up, organize it, and make it a little easier to sift through it all. Unless your head has been firmly buried in sand somewhere, you may have heard Beyonce dropped an unexpected album, the lead single of which (“Drunk In Love“) has been burning up the radio waves and Internet. Everyone and their mother seemed to get on a remix of the Jay Z/Beyonce track as Diplo, Kanye West, T.I. & The Weeknd all highlighted a heavy dose of Bey. Weathering the “Drunk In Love” storm was Canadian product and OVO signne PARTYNEXTDOOR, who dropped off a new song in “Persian Rugs” and Trinidad Jame$, who celebrated Valentine’s Day the way only he can, with a new record in “EtheREAL”. Jeremih & Shlomo‘s latest track, “No More” got a remix from Boots and some EDM from Jr. Hi, who got Childish Gambino on “Trillion Girls” and Ellie Goulding who unveiled a new Skrillex track on her latest mix for BBC Radio 1. Kanye West made the list twice, with producer Hudson Mohawke leaking the original cut of “Bound 2” featuring Tyler, The Creator in Leeds over the weekend, Big Boi continued his series of “Mash-Up Mondays” with a new track in “Damaged World Mash-Up” which comes complete with animated visuals and Trash Talk & Flatbush Zombies got together for “97.92”. From Honduras we got a fresh song in, “Ace” and The Trouble With Templeton showed up with “Soldiers”.
