DJ Khaled f/ Chris Brown, August Alsina, Future & Jeremih “Hold You Down”

With help from Chris Brown, August Alsina, Future, and Jeremih, you know DJ Khaled’s got one for the ladies here. “Hold You Down” is the next offering of I Changed A Lot, and the song debuts with this lavish video by Gil Green bringing together all the talent above. The highlight of the song for me is Jeremih kickin’ it off — thought his delivery set the tone perfectly and it’s good to see him get that shine first.

Is it weird that my first thought on the video was: Khaled, wearing noise canceling headphones when driving is dangerous! When it comes to Khaled in the video, I thought his acting was a little much and even by then, I got the gist of everything. See for yourself and get accustomed to hearing this all over the radio as summer concludes.

Drake OVO Fest Recap

Drake’s annual homecoming for OVO Fest took place last night and it wasn’t short on surprise guests. How about this for a rolodex?

J. Cole, G-Unit, Usher, YG, Tinashe, DJ Khaled, his OVO Crew: PARTYNEXTDOOR, Majid Jordan, and OB O’Brien, Trey Songz and even Lauryn Hill. Not in attendance: Kendrick Lamar, as you may assume, but Drake did shout him out.

The star-studded affair also included Drake “flying” above the crowd performing “Marvin’s Room”. Lowkey, I’ve always wanted to see someone perform above and with the crowd… but if I were Drake, maybe choose a song like “Started From The Bottom”? Still, very cool.

Peruse the various clips for your fix below (and the best image to come out of OVO Fest).

DJ Khaled f/ Jay Z, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, & French Montana “They Don’t Love You No More”

Does Hov take a jab at Drake on Khaled‘s first single, “They Don’t Love You No More”?

Jay’s concluding lines of the song may be a subliminal:

Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my draw string
Wrong sports, bro, you know you’re as soft as a Lacrosse team

I dunno though, aren’t lacrosse players tough?

And is Jay trying to one-up Drake by not only collaborating with Khaled (a Drake staple) for the first time, but also over a Mike Zombie beat. At least that’s how the interwebs are instantly reacting. I personally don’t think this is a huge deal unless Jay were to name Drake directly.

I don’t care as much for the verses by Meek Mill and Rick Ross before Jay’s and French Montana on the hook. I do like Zombie cutting in some of the “Started” production as well. Give this aggressive track a listen below:
