Ever since catching him with Trey Songz on the OOVOO Chapter 5 World Tour, I can’t get enough of Miguel. His Grammy performance only strengthened my belief that this guy is destined to be the future of r&b. He released the video to “Candles in the Sun” today. A bit different than his hit “Adorn,” the song steps away from “love song” and is a more introspective piece looking at the world at large. Here’s what he had to say about it… “It’s so easy to ignore what’s right in front of us sometimes… I wanted to create a song and visual that addressed my everyday concerns of life as I know it in the world that we live in.”

The visuals for “Doo Wah” from the KTD release Traphouse Rock just dropped. Austin Vesely directed, this guy has to be the hottest thing doing it in Chicago right now.

Those who made your “2012 Video of the Year” lists already, might want to think about revising it after “Doo Wah.” Make sure to check out the video below, and remember, Kids These Days ain’t nothin to fuck with!
A$AP Rocky dropped the video for his latest single “F**ckin Problems” today featuring Drake, 2Chainz and Kendrick Lamar. Check out the video below and as Drake says in the song, “You should print the lyrics out and have a f*cking read-along.” Enjoy.

“The Symbol” is the first single from Action Bronson’s forthcoming Mixtape ‘Rare Chandeliers’ produced by the legendary Alchemist. Can’t wait for this one to drop.
Sleeper Agent premiered their new video for “That’s My Baby” yesterday and it’s awesome. The video features the band’s Alex Kandel and Tony Smith performing the song at a karaoke bar with almost too real backdrops. Directed by singer/guitarist Tony Smith, the video’s inspiration “came from a lack of sleep and too much time away from home” said Smith. “I wanted it to be dreamlike; something that’s relatively normal but seems ‘off’.”

Hailing from LA, the trio is fronted by former Mellowdrone member and M83 touring musician Jonathan Bates. Big Black Delta’s explosive live show features dueling drummers and an orchestrated light show, checking them out is highly recommended.
Check out the new video for one of my favorites from Channel Orange, “Pyramids.” Awesome visuals from Nabil as we see the actor playing Frank making his way through strip clubs and the desert after taking shots of absinth.
