“Something New” – Girls Aloud
Girls Aloud came together a decade on the UK TV show Popstars The Rivals. To commemorate their 10 year anniversary, the girls will release a greatest hits album, “Ten,” which will include the brand new track “Something New.” In the video, the girls strut their stuff in some fierce orange dresses and matching hair buns, reminding everyone that they run the show. It’s flashy, it’s sexy, and 10 years later, the girls definitely still know how to work their assets. Catch Girls Aloud’s greatest hits album, “Ten” on Nov. 26.
“Swimming Pools” (Black Hippy remix) – Kendrick Lamar
Kendrick Lamar’s highly anticipated debut album “good kid, m.A.A.d city” is out now, and he enlisted the help of his Black Hippy crew to remix the lead single “Swimming Pools.” The track doesn’t change much except when Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, and ScHoolboy Q add their own verses to the track giving it a different spin than the solo Lamar version. Pour yourself a drank, sit back, and enjoy.
Believe It – Meek Mill ft. Rick Ross
With Meek Mill’s newcomer counterpart Kendrick Lamar dominating headlines, Meek has some stiff competition with his own debut. Lucky for him, Rick Ross is right by his side to help him out. Meek and Rozay collaborate on the new single Believe It, rapping about their over flowing bank accounts, new phones, and all around great lives. I’m not one to decipher the elaborate metaphors some rappers think of, but I heard the Rozay drop the words Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus in the track and that’s good enough for me! Meek Mill’s debut album Dreams and Nightmares is out Oct. 30.

Meek Mill fittingly released the video for his song “Amen” on Sunday, which is a day of worship for many people. The song has been so controversial that a pastor in Philadelphia named Rev. Jomo K. Johnson called for a boycott and Mill accused him of “trying to get famous.”
Meanwhile, the rapper went ahead and released his video for “Amen” yesterday, in which he reminisces about female conquests and magnum bottles. “Lord forgive me for my sins/ I’m just tryna win and shit/ Devil a dress but if she knock I let her in,” he raps.
The video, directed by DRE Films, is set in Mill’s hometown Philadelphia, and we even get a glimpse of the city’s Museum of Art, where Sylvestor Stallone ran in the movie Rocky.
The track features Canadian rapper Drake but we also get cameos in the video from J. Cole, Fat Joe, Travis Porter and Waka Flocka Flame. Meek’s debut album Dreams and Nightmares will be out on Aug. 28.
