And we’re back for week two of our new daily feature on the site, “Songs of the Day”. Starting February off on the right foot, we have a banger from Atlanta’s Young Thug who demonstrates why he has the like of Kanye West raving about him, teaming up with Future and Rich Homie Quan for “Out My Face”. We get a healthy dose of remixes once again, with re-workings of James Blake’s “Life Round Here” from Ellie Goulding and Angel Haze, Rico Love showed off a packed lineup on his “They Don’t Know” remix which features the likes of Ludacris, Trey Songz, Tiara Thomas, T.I. and Emjay. Robbie Brundell also tacks on his own rendition of Drake and Jhene Aiko‘s hit, “From Time”. Australian EDM artist Will Sparks also delivers the first single off his upcoming, debut album in “Catch”.
Hottest track of the day: Yasiin Bey, better known to the larger world as Mos Def, teamed up with a posthumous Marvin Gaye for what he calls “Yasiin Gaye” on this mash-up remix of Bey’s 1997 track “Travelin’ Man” and Gaye’s 1971 hit “Inner City Blues” by producer Amerigo Gazaway. The track is infectiously soulful from beginning to end, making it our hottest track of the day.
