More great music from across the board, including:
The Lion King (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
As you probably know, the super-updated version of the classic film The Lion King is set to hit theaters next
Friday Thursday (July 18th). Today, fans get to check out the official soundtrack, features some sangin’ actors and a score courtesy of Hans Zimmer. Included in the 19-track offering: an original cut by Beyoncé titled “Spirit,” and re-imaginings of childhood favorites like “Hakuna Matata” and “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” (random but necessary shout-out to Elton John).
Check out the new soundtrack below.
Big K.R.I.T. – K.R.I.T. IZ HERE
I can’t believe that it’s been almost a decade since the release of the groundbreaking K.R.I.T. Wuz Here. This weekend, Big K.R.I.T. decided to provide a proper sequel (?) for that project titled K.R.I.T. IZ HERE — a 19-track body of work that also sees additional appearances from J. Cole, Yella Beezy, Lil Wayne, Saweetie, Rico Love and more. Check it out below.
Blood Orange – Angel’s Pulse
This weekend, Dev Hynes somewhat surprises his fans with a follow-up to the still-rotating Negro Swan. Check out Angel’s Pulse, a 14-track offering with additional appearances from Toro y Moi, Project Pat, Gangsta Boo, Tinashe, Justine Skye and more. He explains:
“My new record is called ‘Angel’s Pulse’ and I performed, produced and mixed the entire thing myself… I’m calling it a mixtape. I have a habit through the years of making records that I just give to friends, or on tape to people on the street, or no one. Usually this material is made directly after the album I’ve just put out. Somewhat of an epilogue to the thing I’ve made before. This time.. I decided to release it… I put as much work and care into it as I do with the albums I’ve released, but for some reason trained myself into not releasing things the rate at which I make them. I’m older now though, and life is unpredictable and terrifying… so here you go mates.”

Ed Sheeran – No.6 Collaborations Project
“Before I was signed in 2011, I made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project. Since then, I’ve always wanted to do another, so I started No.6 on my laptop when I was on tour last year… I’m a huge fan of all the artists I’ve collaborated with and it’s been a lot of fun to make.”
You heard the man. Below, Ed Sheeren gifts us with his No.6 Collaborations Project, which sees 15 new tracks and a slew of appearances from Eminem, 50 Cent, H.E.R., Cardi B, Khalid, Young Thug, Meek Mill, Ella Mai, J Hus, Stormzy, PnB Rock and loads more. Press play on the new project, as well as a new visual for the Travis Scott-assisted “Antisocial.”
Elle Varner – Ellevation
Here’s some soulful R&B to add to the mix courtesy of songstress Elle Varner. Check out her new album Ellevation, which clocks in at 9 tracks and sees assistance from Wale (“Pour Me”) and Rapsody (“Wishing Well”). Check it out below.
Master P – I Got The Hook Up 2 Vol. 1
Master P is back. The man who gave us turn-of-the-century classics like Da Last Don, I’m Bout It and, well…all of No Limit’s classic musical catalog is back with an official sequel for the timeless hood flick I Got the Hook-Up, and fans get to enjoy the soundtrack before its release (UPDATE: The film’s out now). The accompanying compilation sees a slew of dope features: Jeezy, Calboy, E-40, YFN Lucci, DC Young Fly, Fat Boy SSE, Romeo Miller, Silkk The Shocker and more make appearances on the project.
