The Weeknd has released the video for new song “The Hills”, which was produced by Mano and Illangelo. The clip follows Abel Tesfaye as he ambles down an empty suburban street in the wake of a car crash, ultimately ending up at a creepy old mansion where he meets some mysterious women.
“The charming DIY rap weirdo iLoveMakonnen is back with a video for his standalone single “Super Chef.” Like many of his clips, this is a pretty goofy stripped-down affair featuring little more than the man himself hanging out in a kitchen. However, he may not be quite the skilled cook that he professes to be. After doing some Lil B-styled cooking, he throws some broccoli in a pan, lights up a joint, and starts stirring away furiously. It seems, uh, kinda dangerous, but he smiles at the camera and pours beer into his cooking veggies. Yikes. Either way the clip, directed by Awful Records’ Father, is a fun little visual.” -Colin Joyce, SPIN

Woke the Fuck Up” is Jon Bellion’s (New York based producer, singer and songwriter) third single of 2015 and a direct response to his previous two: “Woodstock” and “All-Time Low.” Jon continues to impress us, and we think he is going to be as big as Drake in less than three years. Believe it.
