The story of Makonnen is quite touching: a weirdo kid out of place in Atlanta knocking on virtually every door possible only to have them all slammed in his face until finally striking a friendship/working relationship with rising local producers Metro Boomin and (later) Sonny Digital. This relationship led to the creation of “Tuesday”, Makonnen’s smash hit. Makonnen, now signed to Drake’s OVO imprint, is keeping busy, and today we are introduced to MikeWiLLMakonnen (Mike WiLL Made It x Makonnen). You may listen to their wistful new track “Wishin’ You Well” after the jump.
Troy Ave got the club goin’ up… on a Tuesday. Yeah, yeah, it’s a track everyone knows and has beaten to death but leave it to Troy Ave to actually drop his remix of it on a Tuesday. Listen to Troy remix Makonnen’s “Tuesday” on a Tuesday after the jump.
Here’s Drake going for the Best Curator Award again. He has the real skill of adapting others’ styles and does no different with Ontario singer PARTYNEXTDOOR, lacing him with the co-sign to preview this club-friendly electric syrup sound. It’s all the rage in this slowed-down bouncy era. The OVO influence is strong in this one. Check the video after the jump.
Drake and his pops hit the streets of Memphis in the official ten-minute visual for “Worst Behavior.” Cameos include Juicy J, Project Pat and whatever deranged individual got paid to wear that creepy OVO owl costume.
