With all this nice weather comes nice music. Bring back this track from 2004 and this awesome remix by Kartell. Go ahead and master that crip walk and vibe to “Drop It Like It’s Hot”. The song features probably the best Pharrell verse ever and I wish he would bring back a little of this street-style. This song was Pharrell’s biggest hit up until last year with “Get Lucky”. Produced by The Neptunes too which will be helping Pusha T out with his new album King Push. The video also won best music video in Australia in 2006. Enjoy the Thursday guys. TBT
Tomorrow kicks off the last weekend of Coachella 2014. After seeing tons of videos and pictures from the shows last week, it’s very clear that Coachella is no joke. From Paul McCartney to Jay Z, almost everyone who is anyone in the music world heads to Coachella to party at some point. Even artists who don’t perform just head there to hangout. Last week we saw insane performances from Calvin Harris and Skrillex and legendary sets from Nas and of course OutKast. Rumor has it that Calvin Harris had the second biggest crowd in Coachella history. Drake even made an appearance and noted that this was his first time at Coachella. Next year? Anyways, if you didn’t get to go last week and you’re in the area I would highly recommend it. Just do us a favor and don’t dress like an idiot. For those of you who’s pockets aren’t that deep, the live-stream is always a good option. Below are some more links of stuff that you might find interesting about the festival and a Coachella playlist here.
The Busweiser Made In America Music Festival will be held on two different coasts this year on Memorial Day Weekend (August 30th-31st). Jay Z, along with Budweiser, the mayors of Phili and LA, LiveNation, and the charity United Way will be hosting the event that has grown in popularity over the past few years. After the jump you can see the video preview but the event will have 6 stages in each city and 60 performers. Announcements on the line-ups and such have not been released just yet but we will keep you updated. Last year we saw Jay Z vibing to Deadmau5′ set so who knows what we’ll get this year. Made In America will be the first music festival to be featured simultaneously on both coasts. Hopefully the line-ups are equally as dope and perhaps they will just switch off between Saturday & Sunday. The festival benefits the charity United Way and this year with twice as much music it will hopefully generate twice as much revenue for the cause.
Everyone knows about Donald Glover’s new album Because the Internet and his history of having emotional problems within himself. Watching this very creative video I think displays the discussion going on inside his head 24/7. Basically this song is about him looking at himself both positively and negatively. At least that’s what I see. It could be interpreted many different ways. Check it out and see what you think. Then go watch the “3005″ video with Abella Anderson again.
For those of you wondering what that song was they always played on the live feed, here you go. After each day Ultra put together their best footage with this song and now they have smashed all days together to make one final video to thank everyone for coming out this year. It was one of the most successful years yet but Ultra is in danger of being kicked out of Miami even though they have a long standing contract with the city to stay there for the next couple of years. Head on over to Ultra’s website to help them keep it in Ultra so everyone can enjoy it again next spring. Here’s another article that includes a video about the news behind Miami maybe exiling Ultra of good. Help them out and we’ll see you all next March!
Writing for these “Me & My Headphones” gets more difficult every week. I don’t really have anything to say except listen to the music below. Each week we get tons of submissions and hundreds of songs are released every week. These are the best ones that we found and think will heighten your weekend. I tried to keep it small this weekend so that many it wasn’t so overwhelming and the quality is better. Please let us know what you think but liking the post or sharing. You should grab all these songs and follow the artists that made them. Good shit – have a good weekend! [Update] Fuck it, adding more songs you guys should have. You’re welcome.
