DJ Snake & AlunaGeorge – You Know You Like It

Posted on: April 3rd, 2015 by Tina

DJ Snake & AlunaGeorge - You Know You Like It

 

“You Know You Like It” is a song from London-based electronic duo AlunaGeorge that was remixed by DJ Snake sometime last year and has been gaining momentum ever since.

 

Vocalist Aluna Francis [guess what the other guy’s name is] sings the chorus, “You know you like it but it drives you insane, You know you like it but it drives you insane…” so I assume this song is about Beyoncé’s Instagram.

David Guetta & Afrojack ft. Nicki Minaj – Hey Mama

David Guetta & Afrojack ft. Nicki Minaj - Hey Mama

 

Off David Guetta’s latest album, “Hey Mama” features Nicki Minaj and was co-produced with Afrojack. The track is the fourth single off Listen, and is the third collaboration between David Guetta and Nicki Minaj, after “Where Them Girls At” and “Turn Me On”.

 

Nicki raps the verses and sings along with Bebe Rexha on the chorus, who co-wrote the song. The fact that Bebe Rexha is uncredited on this track is unforgivable, not unlike the time my high school yearbook “forgot” to credit me in the Senior Superlatives with “Most Attractive.”

 

…they did forget, right?

Zedd ft. Selena Gomez – I Want You To Know

Zedd ft. Selena Gomez - I Want You To Know

 

“I Want You to Know” is the first single off Zedd’s sophomore album, True Colors, and was co-written by Ryan Tedder with vocals by Selena Gomez.

 

The track stays true to Zedd’s EDM roots, featuring his signature glitchy-elements and pulsating drops while Selena sings, “I want you to know that it’s our time, You and me bleed the same light.”

 

My cousin had that same light-bleeding condition, and, with medication, it’s a completely manageable disease.

 

…except for that unfortunate incident when the power went out while he was shopping for steak knives.

R3hab & NERVO ft. Ayah Marar – Ready For The Weekend

R3hab & NERVO ft. Ayah Marar - Ready For The Weekend

 

On R3hab & NERVO’s latest banger, Ayah Marar sings, “If you’re ready for the weekend, You gotta let yourself go,” which I would argue is not the best way to prepare yourself for the weekend. Monday through Friday you gotta eat right and work out if you wanna be able to pick up dudes on the weekend, and by that I mean literally pick up dudes and put them back down. How else are you going to be able to do that without hitting the gym a few times a week?

Dirty South ft. Sam Martin – Unbreakable

Dirty South ft. Sam Martin - Unbreakable

 

This song is infinitely better if you change the chorus to “Where we’re going? We don’t know, Like tomatoes, we will grow.” What’s better than song about gardening?

 

“Unbreakable” is the lead single from Dirty South’s upcoming sophomore album, With You, out November 4.

David Guetta ft. Sam Martin - Dangerous

 

David Guetta recently released the lead single from his upcoming album, Listen, out November 24th. “Dangerous” features Sam Martin (also the vocalist on Guetta’s “Lovers on the Sun“) and a wide range of instrumentation: piano, strings, and orchestral effects. In an interview with Billboard, Guetta gushed about his new hairstyle saying, “it’s completely different from anything I’ve done before.”

 

No? That’s about the direction of his new album? Oh.
I assumed he was speaking about his sassy ombre locks.

Calvin Harris ft. John Newman – Blame

Calvin Harris ft. John Newman - Blame

 

Calvin Harris teams up with John Newman to release the second single from Harris’ upcoming fourth studio album. “Blame” finds the two artists attributing their bad decisions to the nighttime, “So blame it on the night – Don’t blame it on me.”

 

Where does this new rationale leave Jamie Foxx? I’ve been following his teachings for the past five years. Do you know how much money I’ve spent on goose and patron trying to justify waking up in a puddle of vomit next to a stranger? Ugh, now you tell me…

Alesso-Ft.-Tove-Lo-Heroes

 

Alesso debuted “Heroes” yesterday, his latest single featuring fellow Swede, Tove Lo on vocals.

 

While the following has nothing to do with Swedish dance music, the above song title has inspired today’s PSA:

 

Hero: potato :: heroes : potatoes

 

Same goes for “tomato.”
Thank you.

Steve Angello recently released new music featuring the Temper Trap’s Dougy. “Wasted Love” is the lead single from Angello’s debut album Wild Youth, out later this year.

 

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Angello said of working with Dougy Mandagi, “We just wanted to have a song where our worlds collided a little bit, something that speaks to all of us, and something that teaches us how to dougy”

David Guetta ft. Sam Martin – Lovers on the Sun

David Guetta ft. Sam Martin - Lovers on the Sun

 

“Lovers on the Sun” is David Guetta’s latest single, off of his Lovers on the Sun EP. The song is co-produced by Avicii and features his signature country/folk-infused EDM.

 

I wonder if they call people who get married outdoors in Texas during summertime “lovers on the sun”?

 

…no, probably just “dummies.”
