Aaaah yes New York City! Justin Timberlake tours from Chinatown to Yankee stadium in his new video. I can’t wait to hear how the second 20/20 Experience will sound like. The first one sounded really Frank Sinatra era style so I’m hoping this one is like Michael Jackson style.

Paul Dhillon will be proving that he can be a great rapper and after hearing a few new tracks he is on his way.


I didn’t like the last couple of songs that Big Sean released from his upcoming album Hall Of Fame but THIS one is FIRE! I really love the production and his flow. I hope his new album sounds a little like his Detroit mixtape cause that turned me into a Big Sean fan.

Yes!!! My girl Sophia Bastian is back with her brand new Juvenile Blues EP! This EP is a little different then her first self titled EP. The first one was more like an introduction where Bastian showcased a range of different genres (reggae, blues, soul). On her new EP, Bastian focuses more on the classic blues sound and it sounds amazing! If you aren’t already on the Bastian train you better jump on.

One of my top 10 favourite singers, Sampha from SBTRKT takes us on memory lane where he first learned how to recorded beats in his childhood home. Sampha also gives us an acoustic performance of his track ‘Indecision’ which you can find on his Dual EP.

Once again, Kanye West changed the game with this Black Skinhead film. You can watch it above but the ONLY way to experience this interactive film is by visiting his website. YEEZUS is currently the best album of 2013.


If you’ve been following Heroin Tracks for awhile then you know I’m a super fan of Jesse Boykins III’s music! Like, I can’t even describe the feeling I get when I listen to his records. His voice is simply beautiful, contemporary, soulful, and full of life! I feel bad because so many people are sleeping on Jesse Boykins III, his music is real art and one day I hope he gets the proper breakout.

Listen to Jesse Boykins III’s P.O.P [purpose or people] EP and download it below the player.

Oh we got a new Childish Gambino record? It’s about damn time Mr. Glover! I guess with so many legends like JAY Z and Kanye West releasing new music this year Gambino decided to finally get back in the studio and record some new shit. Hopefully he’ll drop a new mixtape soon.

At first I didn’t really care for Ferg’s ‘Shabba’ record but then I saw this video and I couldn’t get the song out of my head!


So I’ve been away from Heroin Tracks for awhile because I’m trying to make that transition from blogger to a public relations pro! Things got a little busy and I had to put work first. Now that my internship is over and I have a little time off I can get back to the music! There have been A LOT of music coming out this year and I wanted to list some of the albums that I’ve been listening to this summer.

JAY Z – Magna Carta… Holy Grail
Justin Timberlake – The 20/20 Experience
Pretty Lights – A Color Map of the Sun
Robin Thicke – Blurred Lines
