The album’s music is said to stay true to Modest Mouse’s classic sound. Any current fan of the band is expected to find something on the album that they enjoy. 

R&B crooner Vedo dropped his latest single “Yesterday”. Following up the success of “For You” & “You Got It”, the Michigan-born singer showcases his love for 90’s R&B and the ladies on “Yesterday”. The song features a sample of Jon B that is sure to take you back to the golden days of R&B as the mentee to Usher displays his vocal range on the record. This is another great release from Vedo who is poised to keep up his streak of delivering unforgettable R&B tracks.

Prince’s posthumous album Welcome 2 America is released today. The songs on the album were recorded in 2010, 6 years before the artist’s death, and have stayed in the artist’s vault in his Paisley Park studio since then. Morris Hayes, longtime keyboarder for Prince, talked about the Welcome 2 America saying “it’s a lot of different stories and the different songs, and everything just kind of has its own little chapter in the book.” In April, the title track of the album was released.
