[Songs of the Day] 2/20/14 (Feat. Ashanti, Frank Ocean, Jagwar Ma & More)

Things were a little late on Thursday for releases over the Internet, but we got a resurgence from a familiar name, a re-hashing of a track, and some freshness from around the web. Taking us back to 2002 for a moment, Ashanti dropped a single from her upcoming album, BraveHeart, due out on March 14. The song is called “First Real Love” and features ‘King of the Dance Hall” Beenie Man. Long Beach, Calif., product Vince Staples dropped “Nate” featuring James Fauntleroy while Blue Sky Black Death released a way late remix of Frank Ocean‘s track “Pyramids” off his last project, Channel Orange. Jagwar Ma also received a remix, this one by MssngNo for the track, “Uncertainty” and the consonant-heavy artist Nguzunguzu gave listeners a dance track to sleep to in “The Perfect Lullaby Vol. II”. Check out all of the tracks, streaming below.
