A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...
Lady Gaga: "Judas"
Pop culture's favorite centaur (sorry, A-Rod!) continues her inexorable march toward world domination with this cheerily blasphemous and totally captivating new track, a "Bad Romance"-reminiscent mix of electro, dub and '80s pop.
Win Win featuring Blaqstarr:
The rightly-hyped trio of producers, DJs and visual artists (including Spank Rock's XXXChange) teams with Baltimore rapper Blaqstarr for this blissfully fuzzy rave-up.
Wale featuring Meek Mill:
The D.C. rapper and his Maybach labelmate team for this (likely) contribution to the upcoming "Self Made, Vol. 1.," sure to add fuel to the ongoing “Is Wale A Sellout?” debate.
Atmosphere featuring Aesop Rock:
"Which Way Is Up?"
The union of the Minnesota rappers and their (possible) Rhymesayers mate, made available as part of a Rhymesayers compilation disc, was one of Record Store Day’s greatest and least-heralded offerings.
U2 and Jay-Z: "Sunday Bloody Sunday" (live)
Turns out last year's superpower summit between Rock Star In Chief Bono, newly-minted lifestyle guru Jay-Z and the ghost of Bob Marley only seemed like a bad idea.
