Beyonce – Drunk In Love (Diplo)

I admit to also encourage people to check out the Weeknd’s version as well, but Diplo goes off on this one.  I highly recommend the play button on this one.

Avicii – Wake Me Up

No, not a Chris Brown cover, but Avicii follows an amazing two years with his new folk concept album.  “Wake Me Up,” is the first single and reminds me of when Pretty Lights remixed John Denver.  This definitely has some potential.

Solange – Losing You (Cyril Hahn Remix)

Having the most famous R&B singer for a sister can’t be that awful, but when you are in the same business, I can how that can overshadow your own career.  Solange has been at it for awhile now, and she seems to steer clear of regular pop and r&b and make her own imprint with her music.  Cyril Hahn takes her current hit “Losing You,” turns the vocals monotone and puts an eerie electric feel to it.  The result: something you should listen to immediately.

Avicii – Stay With You feat. Mike Posner

The road from underground electronic DJ to the mainstream can be extremely difficult for anyone trying to make that transition (even though it seems like anyone with a Macbook can be considered a “DJ” these days).  That is of course, unless you’re Avicii, and you step onto the scene creating that one song every artist works their whole life to create. Avicii is  now following in the footsteps of those before him, and crossing over into the pop scene.  Here he collaborates with SF artist, Mike Posner, for a track that may not quite be “Levels” caliber, but sure to be heard in every club you go.

Calvin Harris ft. Florence Welch – Sweet Nothing

What a year for Calvin Harris.  “Feel So Close,” was the first song posted here on Always On Shuffle, and also the first time I ever heard of him.  Numerous hit singles and awards later, he is one of the top producers in music.  Here he partners up with the lead singer of Florence and the Machine.  Get ready to dance around the 1:01 mark.
