The Weeknd ft. Drake – The Zone

This is one of the first songs posted on this blog over a year ago.  Now with the re-release of his mixtape trilogy, we finally get a visual for the song.  Smooth R&B at its finest with a Drake verse as a reward for hanging in there till the end.

Nicki Minaj – Champion (Feat. Nas, Drake & Young Jeezy)

I will give it to Nicki, after a horrid performance at the Grammy’s she has put out a great Sophomore album filled with every genre according to her personalities.  She has the pop records such as “Starships,” that make even the youngest of girls recite her lyrics and then she has songs like the one below that cater to her more adult audience.  “Champion,” has the laundry list of guest favorites and delivers.

Jeremih ft. Drake – I Get Lonely Too

We at AOS try to bring you only quality music, sub par just doesn’t cut it around here.  Lately we have been having a hard time finding new music deserving of our site.  So to keep your ears busy with new tracks i have decided to post some from the vault.  These are tracks that never got released and should be new to most of our visitors.  The first of these tracks is “I Get Lonely Too.”  This track was originally planned for Drake’s R&B mixtape that was supposed to be released after, Thank Me Later came out.  Unfortunately for his fans, Drake (aka his record label) decided to shop around these tracks to other artists.  Jeremih,  took on the track, added his vocals, and here is the result.  I added the original for comparison.  I actually dig them both, hear it for yourself.

Drake – We’ll Be Fine

After having Take Care for the past week, I am starting to hit the replay button on several tracks.  “We’ll Be Fine,” reminds me of “Uptown,” off of his So Far Gone mixtape.  Except for the uncalled ad libs of Cash Money’s CEO, Birdman, this song is one of my favorites.  I am still mad that he did not include “Club Paradise,” (previously posted on AOS) on the final album, but this is classic Drizzy.

Drake – Over My Dead Body

Take Care opens with ego filled bars over a simple beat with a nice female chorus.  “Over My Dead Body,” is one of the few rapping tracks, at least it seems, for an album that showcases more of an R&B side of the Toronto artist.  While it is still too soon for me to judge, I am divided at the moment in how much I like this album.  It has many highlights and I will post a full review soon.
