Allie X presents: "Paper Love"

"Paper Love" is the opening track from the debut album from Allie X.  The lyric video can be tough, kind of intense on the view as you face the gaze from the singer as you follow along.  CollXtion II is the album, primed for it's June 9th release.  The track, and the album begin with a sound that could be comprised of multiple voices, or could be a unique synth flavour.  The mystery begins in the first moment, and it feels like there's more than meets the eye when it comes to Allie X.  The song balances a dirty bassline with one of the simplest everyday instruments, whistling.  Everything about this mysterious song says come  back for more when CollXtion II is released June 9th.

VIDEO: Migos "Slippery" ft. Gucci Mane

"Slippery" comes from Migos' era defining, expectation defying album Culture.  For some the moment came when Donald Glover thanked them in winning a Golden Globe Award for his show Atlanta.  For many the rise to prominence started long ago.  "Slippery" might seem like a garden variety rap video, but considering the journey the Atlanta trio have been on it's a perfectly timed celebration with another hometown rap legend: Gucci Mane. 

The celebration continues with the ultimate summer rap tour, Migos will be landing in Toronto at the Budweiser Stage.  One of the biggest venues in the city will be hosting one of the most vital new acts in music, along with favourites like Future, Tory Lanez, Zoey Dollaz and A$AP Ferg.  Culture is available here, and tickets for May 16th in Toronto are available here.  Check out the video for "Slippery" below.
