Syd Bad Dream

After dropping her solo debut album Fin, The Internet’s frontwoman, Syd returns with “Bad Dream / No Looking Back.” The double song, produced by Gwen Bunn and Ricci Riera, is the first release off her forthcoming project, Always Never Home.

The atmospheric production provides a seductive backdrop for Syd’s soothing tone. “You’re a freak on the low / I’ll go as deep as can go,” she sings. “You let me know that it’s real / You get mad on the phone / I be hating the tone / There’s just a lot going on. ”

Written, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Syd, the second half of the track features a warning about commitment. “We only kiss when we fuckin’ so we don’t get too attached,” she sings. “If this turns into something, we know there’s no looking back.”

The Internet songstress dropped her 12-track solo debut Fin back in February. Now, the breakout Odd Future star is prepping Always Never Home for Sept. 8.

Watch: Jazmine Sullivan Joins Goldlink in “Meditation” Video


Four months after dropping an animated visual for his collaboration with Jazmine Sullivan and Kaytranada, buzzing rapper Goldlink debuts a cinematic style music video for “Meditation.”

The visual tells the story of a night out at a club, where GoldLink sees a beautiful woman who is accompanied by another man. Things seem to be peaceful, as the likes of Ray J hang out and party, but the evening takes a drastic turn.

Jazmine delivers a flirtatious performance in the ladies room, as other females primp and pose.
“I want to be more than homies / I just want to be your baby, your one and only,” she sings on the sexy chorus.

GoldLink is then seen dancing with the girl he’s been eyeing, causing a fury of tension to fill the room. Clearly, the man she was just with and his friends don’t take kindly to this act so they approach him. A fight breaks out and shots are fired before the clip fades to black.

“‘Meditation’ is a quick glimpse into DC Go-Go and street culture,” Goldlink previously explained about the track. “It’s kind of like a West Side Story, in a way — as far as it’s a guy who sees a girl. This guy is from one neighborhood and the girl is from another rivaling neighborhood. They see each other across the room. He talks to her, they reminisce, they laugh, and then a confrontation happens.”

Check out the video below.
