There’s no doubt Kacy Hill’s debut album Like A Woman is going to be magnificent, and it won’t be too long before it finally arrives. The full length will drop on June 30th via G.O.O.D. Music / Def Jam Recordings, and it’s executive produced by none other than a man whom many worship as a god, Kanye West. The Los Angeles starlet has released a striking music video for her current single and the title track off the album. Like A Woman’s lyrics are painted onto Kacy Hill in the video, directed by J.A.C.K. It serves to further emphasize the expressiveness and eloquence of her grand soaring pop ballad. You can pre-order her debut full length, here.

I was fortunate enough to catch Canadian singer songwriter, rapper, and producer JAHKOY last spring in Austin at SXSW. In fact, I made it a point to go out of my way and run across town just for his set. My hopes to see him again magnify after listening to JAHKOY’s seductive new R&B ballad, California Heaven, a song which sees him teaming up with rapper ScHoolboy Q. The hip hop artists’s gritty rap verses add a dusty slink to JAHKOY’s gooey grooving, torrid sweltering tune. California Heaven is a syrupy ode to California that seems more fitting of sunny Los Angeles than foggy San Francisco. JAHKOY will be dropping a new EP entitled Foreign Water later this fall.

I only found out about a Norwegian production act named Sonny Laven a few weeks ago, via a superb remix of SOHN’s Bloodflows, one of my favorite tracks of 2014. The producer is equally entrancing on an official remix of super producer Alesso’s Cool, featuring Roy English. Its a sublimely chill experience in multiple ways. Serene and cooling, the deep and melodic house edit is a dreamy, hazy summer treat. The remix will be out on Def Jam come May 12th.

If you haven’t yet heard of ALESSIA, you’re going to be part of a diminishing minority in the music appreciation world. It’s okay, I’m here to help you out with this shar of her Def Jam debut single, Here. The 18 year old talent samples Isaac Hayes on the snappy, soulful song. Mary J Blige meets Lauryn Hill with a hefty dosage of Alicia Keys on the fiery, bold song.
