Controversy surround her art has not caused M.I.A. to quiet down. And this is a good thing. As seen in our latest Weekly Set the British singer remains relevant to our readership by claiming the top spot. Her outstanding single “XXXO” has received a royal remix treatment with none other than Jay-Z adding his always poignant lyrics to the song. It comes as no surprise that Eminem is in heavy demand among our readers – especially since his Relapse-album will be released in less than two weeks. His second collaboration with Lil’ Wayne, “No Love”, is a letter of criticism hinting at the lack of support in the industry. Well, apparently this is not the case over here at Hypetrak. The Roots are about to bless the world with another excellent album entitled How I Got Over. The tracks that have leaked so far sound more than promising. “The Fire” featuring soulful crooner John Legend is no exception. After almost three classic-filled decades in the business, the reputation of Prince must not be questioned. In honor of his 51st birthday the legendary singer gave his hometown radio station The Current a gift in the shape of the uplifting jam “Hot Summer”. Not one to be missing in our beloved Top 5 Drake made the list as well, with his Caribbean-influenced rework of his hit single “Find your Love” featuring Reggae-artist Gyptian.
We also celebrated the comeback of one of the most respected lyricists in the rap game. Andre 3000 reappeared on the scene with two guest verses – first, 3 Stacks lent his vocals on a new track of his fellow OutKast Big Boi, entitled “Lookin’ 4 Ya”, and blessed the remix of Ciara’s summer jam “Ride”. Welcome back!
Also check out for excellent interpretations for Crystal Castles “Suffocation” and Yo La Tengo’s “Here To Fall”. Making a cameo appearance for New York-based underground artist Sali, number one spot-holder M.I.A. rounds up this week’s set as.
