DJKhaled_ImTheOne

With son Asahd working hard in the director’s seat, DJ Khaled invites an all-star cast to his mansion to celebrate success and their blessings in “I’m the One.” The catchy melody goes perfect with Bieber’s light vocals and the emcees maintain a carefree mode in spite of a few raunchy lines. Don’t be surprised if this crosses over to pop radio and dominates into the summer months.

SZA_TravisScott_LoveGalore

Breakups to autotune makeups abound in SZA’s new video for “Love Galore.” Travis Scott plays the love/hate interest for SZA’s rollercoaster emotions, which include sensual caressing, bondage and finally a Misery-inspired murder. Leave these crazy chicks alone, fellas.

Goapele_Power

It’s been three years since our ears have been caressed by Goapele’s sultry vocals. The Bay Area vocalist ends that drought next month with a new project entitled Dreamseekers. The first single is the vibrant, ethereal “Power,” which showcases a reflective Goapele that celebrates love in all its facets (self, family, community etc.)

“I’m a woman, but I’m also a whole person who won’t be confined to any one box,” she told VIBE. “Nobody is just one thing. Within any race, within any genre, and within any neighborhood, there’s so much diversity. As artists and especially as women of color, we have to be proud of that. I’m coming from an honest place and expressing the different parts of myself that make me whole.”

Dreamseekers is set for a May 19 release.

Dolph_100Shots

How the fuck do you miss a whole 100 shots?

Despite getting 100 full automatic rounds dumped into his vehicle, the self-proclaimed “King of Memphis” is back with new visuals off his Bulletproof project. “100 Shots” finds Dolph holding court at a local mini-mart with defiant bars aimed at all naysayers.

NickiMinaj_NoFrauds

The queen is back? Although her beef with Remy Ma has simmered down, Nicki Minaj is looking to have the final say with her video for the “No Frauds” diss. Revisiting the bars aimed at Remy still won’t set the world on fire, but these visuals are well-done from an aesthetic standpoint (particularly the crown, throne and face mask clips). Will this be enough to get Remy back in her bag?
