Alex Clare – Damn Your Eyes


Alex Clare, one of the dopest artists in any genre right now, recently cut this gripping (and we don’t use that word lightly) cover of “Damn Your Eyes”, a tune made famous by the legendary Etta James. It’s rare to hear an Etta song done so well, let alone by a male voice. Do not miss this one.

Wale – Lotus Flower Bomb (Feat. Miguel)


According to Wale, “Lotus Flower Bomb” is the first official, real, actual Ambition track to be leaked to the interwebs. The smooth, “call up your girlfriend cause its gonna be a special night” track is all sorts of major radio hit material. R&B dude Miguel Jontel hooks up an easy, sticky, stays-in-your-head type hook to complement Wale’s choice focused bars. Wale sounds focused. He sounds ready. Ambition is due November 1st.
