The Round Up #5: Adele, David Bowie, Amir Obè & More

This week’s Round Up consists of Adele, David Bowie, Amir Obè and more.

Adele’s latest album couldn’t be more relatable to the woes of being 25 in the relationship realm of life. She releases a video for her latest single, “When We Were Young.” Live at the Church Studios, hitting notes of pain, reminiscent of a time once ago, you can’t help but say, “Yes Adele! I feel you.” Check out the simple yet beautiful video for the record below, and try not to shiver when she hits high notes.

Unlike the 1980’s “Let’s Dance” hit, which is the David Bowie sound many of us are used to, the larger-than-life musician shares a new single off of his 25th studio album, “★” or “Blackstar.” Awaiting its release in 2016 on his birthday, Bowie makes us wonder what’s next — since there’s inspiration from Kendrick Lamar. Check out the 10-minute motion picture influenced by Popeye and directed by Johan Renck below.

Awww, brotherly love. Siblings Taylor Bennett and Chance The Rapper collaborate on a new track titled, “Broad Shoulders.” On the record, the two advise one another, reflect on childhood and growing into the young men they are today. It is a message and song worth hearing. Teach what you learn…

When you’re in the mood to turn down the trap and turn up the romance, this is the cut for you: Amir Obè, hailing from Brooklyn, New York and raised in Detroit, Michigan, has teamed up with OctobersVeryOwn’s PARTYNEXTDOOR for their sexy collaboration “Truth For You.” With Mississauga’s own PND on the chorus, Amir spits his truths for bae and only bae. During a tour run earlier this year, we saw the young talent live and we weren’t impressed.

Recently, French group NIID released the official video for their new English-rapped single, “Beach Call.” Featuring the oh-so-talented New York City-based dance group, The Waffle Crew (an acronym for ‘We Are Family For Life Ent.’), the music video shows various shots of the dancers around the streets of Brooklyn and subway train routes.
