Drake continues his reign as SOTD leader after dropping his new R&B joint titled off of Take Care, “Marvin’s Room”. Not sure what it really has to do with the play of the same name, but if you’re in need of an ex, then this is the song for you. Listen and try not to cry, lol.
Although I didn’t like Wale‘s mixtape, More About Nothing, as much as others, one song that stood out was “Break-up Song”. Above is the official music video for it, and, if you liked the film 500 Days of Summer, you’ll love the video.
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.
