Watch Lupita Nyong’o and ‘Us’ Co-Stars Rap in Character

Lupita Nyong’o has just dropped one of the most unexpected rap tracks of 2019 on her Instagram, starring her Us co-stars.

The cast members of Jordan Peele‘s highly anticipated new horror flick, Us, rap about their characters in a short video which Nyong’o captioned, “Troublemaker ain’t scared of Us.”

The black and white clip sees Nyong’o and co-star Winston Duke sitting in the car from the film, with Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex, who play their children, in the newly released film. The “Wilson family” perform the original track with lyrics by Robyn Hood of Truth Teller Productions and music created by Chris Herbie Holland.

Like Peele’s film, the track focuses on ideas of duality and the doppelgängers. Despite the sinister beat and haunting lyrics, the cast members can’t help but crack a smile.

Check out the lyrics below.

It’s Jason, baby boy out the crew
Mask on deck, if you see me I’m comin’ for you.

Zora stay ready, chopping the track like a machete (Sushi)
My duality comes at night
My Red Umbrae will give you a fright (Sushi)

I will make ya, cut and shake ya,
Five on it
All smoke no vapors, it feels real
I play Adelaide
You’re your own worst enemy
Be afraid

Gabe’s on deck if you wanna get crazy
Robin Hood gives me low bars
You know my Red ain’t lazy

Watch yourself with that nonsense
Us is killing it, no contest

Wilson’s got them scissors
And you know we’ll make you quiver
’cause it’s us (yeah)
Us (yeah)
Us (yeah)
Us (yeah)
Red’s got them scissors
Baby don’t you make a fuss!

WMG’s Arts Division has invested in a new wave of algorithm-led “creatives,” signing music app Endel to produce 20 albums across the next year. The music algorithm app, which launched in Japan last November, claims to create “personalized soundscapes to give your mind and body what it needs to achieve total immersion in any task.”

According to Pitchfork, the Endel has already released five albums this year as part of its Sleep series: Clear Night, Rainy Night, Cloudy Afternoon, Cloudy Night, and Foggy Morning. The next 15 albums will correspond with the app’s other modes: Relax, Focus, and On-the-Go.

Take a listen to some of Endel’s top tracks below.

What do you think about the new wave of algorithm-led “creatives?” Let us know in the comments below.

Listen to “Sex Talk,” the New Single From Megan Thee Stallion

Untitled-2-320×320.jpg

Houston-based rapper Megan Thee Stallion just released a new single, called “Sex Talk.”

The sex-positive “Sex Talk” sees Megan turn the tables on typical, male gaze rap songs and take charge. Listen to it below.

2018 was a big year for the 24-year-old rapper – she released an EP called Tina Snow, and became the first female rapper to be signed to 300 Entertainment. 2019 is shaping up to be even bigger. The video for “Big Ole Freak,” the first single off her upcoming album Fever, already has over 2 million views. Fever is out April 12. Somehow, Megan manages all this success while being a full-time student at university.

Sadly, instead of celebrating the release of “Sex Talk,” Megan Thee Stallion has been in mourning. She announced on Instagram yesterday that her mother passed away. Megan’s mother was also a rapper, known as Holly Wood, but ore recently she was working as her daughter’s manager, as revealed by Megan in an interview with Rolling Stone.
