This is the third song released from their second LP which is confirmation enough for me that the entire album will exceed any sort of biased preconceptions I might have had about their music. I loved them in the past - especially after seeing them perform live for Lykke Li - but I never realized that they’d still create such rich, layered, subtly danceable tunes after a few years of surprising successes.

10. Osama, Other Bad Guys Bite the Big One. Seems like a bleak year to be a fascist boss bitch a-hole. Osama bin Laden, Muammar Gaddafi, and Kim Jong-il all died which sucks for them but is pretty sweet for the rest of the world. Score one for the good guys.
YES! Friend of WeTheUrban, Kreayshawn, is back at it. Good Charlotte’s Benji and Joel Madden teamed up with some of the newest players in the hip-hop game for a mixtape called Before Volume 1 (and it’s actually not that bad). This first tune, Firetruck, is the lead song on the mixtape (which drops November 11th). Check it out above!

Drake’s sophomore LP, Take Care, drops next Tuesday, November 15th through Young Money/Cash Money/Universal. You’ve probably already heard the album singles, “Headlines” and “Make Me Proud”, but last week, Toronto radio station Flow 93.5 brought us his latest track featuring The Weeknd: “Crew Love”. I definitely dig Drake, and I LOVE The Weeknd, so this was an automatic hit for me.
