The Weeknd recently dropped a new track off of his upcoming mixtape Thursday, which is supposed to drop sometime soon, according to The Weeknd himself. The track is called “Rolling Stone” and features The Weeknd singing along to the melodic tone of an acoustic guitar. The song is not quite as dark and dreary as what’s featured on House of Balloons, but it gets a passing grade.

Start Your Own Rebellion is a group/rapper (?) who I don’t know much about, however his/their J. Cole-produced song, “Let It Go” was appealing to me on first listen. Apparently S.Y.O.R. makes music, cartoons, and comic books according to their website http://www.startyourrebellion.com. Check them out.

Mike Posner recently dropped a cover of one of my favorite Coldplay songs, “The Scientist”. Posner puts his own creative spin to it, adding a heavy bass and beat, creating a very dub-step-ish version of the classic song. Posner fans and Coldplay fans alike should dig this one.

Childish Gambino has been on point with all of his Adele samples, and today’s SOTD is no different. “Do Ya Like” is one of his earlier songs he made from the mixtape Culdesac. He samples Adele’s “Melt My Heart To Stone”. Looking forward to whatever he plans on releasing next and hopefully more Adele is included.

Surprise, surprise! Drizzy Drake decided to randomly drop a new joint recently, called “Dreams Money Can Buy”. Haven’t given it too many listens yet, but it sounds like something that’ll be getting many plays over the next few days.

Another leak from Big Sean’s upcoming Finally Famous: The Album, titled, “What Goes Around”. Sean never fails to disappoint when it comes to his punchlines, and this song is no different.

Apologies for the late SOTD once again. Bojda is apparently M.I.A. so bear with me here. Changing up the pace a bit, for today’s SOTD I decided on some hard-hitting Eminem, Slaughterhouse, and Yelawolf on the song “2.0 Boys”. This is a good one to get pumped up to or to work out to. The song is also good grounds for debate on who has the best verse. Surprisingly, Eminem comes off rather bland (by his standards at least), so each member of Shady Records can compete for the best verse.
