New Music: "The Truth" by JSWISS JSWISS

Emerging artist JSWISS just released his latest offering, “The Truth,” which doubles a great introduction for fans interested in unfiltered hip-hop that draws from multiple influences and features bona fide lyricism.

“Optiks' production ‘The Truth’ provides the right vibe for me to talk that talk as an MC about myself and my work ethic, as well as drop some gems like ‘a rope can't hold a spirit, they tried it that was feeble/ a rope could hold a person, can't hold down a people,’” JSWISS said, of the song and how it came together. “Overall ‘The Truth’ refers to me as the ‘real deal’ as far as skills and the truth that I give you in every song, even when it's just lyrical exercise. It also connects to the theme ‘Awthentic’ that I use to describe both my music and fan base, which both proudly embody the idea of being uncompromisingly yourself.”

Take a listen to “The Truth,” which also features live bass from Lez Lemon and Matt Giella on trumpet, above.

New Music: “Lois Lane” by Porcelan Porcelan

After garnering the attention of many new ears with the release of her debut single “The Real Thing Don’t Change,” which broke the Top 40 on the Urban AC chart this past fall, singer Porcelan returns with new music.

Her sophomore single, “Lois Lane,” is a beautiful offering, exploring the emotional space and vulnerability that new love brings.

Of the track, Porcelan says, “Every woman wants a strong man in their lives that makes her feel secure. The ideal fantasy is to be swept off your feet and protected by a strong man who will rescue you from anything that can bring you harm, and Superman’s love for Lois Lane symbolizes that.”

New Music: Saweetie remixes Duo Lipa’s “IDGAF” Dua Lipa x Saweetie

Dua Lipa has been providing banger after banger lately, with the pop singer cementing her reputation as one of 2018’s most exciting talents with each release, three of which just so happen to be charting on the Hot 100 currently.

Saweetie, a fast-rising rapper from the Bay Area, found herself inspired by the London-born singer, giving her track “IDGAF” the official remix treatment.

For the remake, the “ICY GRL” rapper adds several verses, further adding to the celebratory unbothered vibe the track proudly encompasses.

“How it feel, how it feel, how it feel? / Sign off on our connection / And I sign onto a deal,” the fresh Warner Bros signee spits. “Shoulda kept a hundred / Man, you shoulda kept it real / Cause I realize you fake / And you lost all your appeal / It don't hurt when I see you with her / You was always insecure / And believed what you heard.”

Fans can catch Saweetie at the 2018 Miami installment of Rolling Loud, set to take place next weekend (May 11-13) and be livestreamed exclusively by REVOLT TV.
