Planet Funk, Sam Smith's 007 ballad, and mo' fiya from Janet and Miss.

Adrien Vargas // REVOLT

Janet Jackson ft. Missy Elliott, “BURNITUP”

Make it hot like fiya.

If ever you needed to know what sweat hitting the dance floor sounded like, Janet Jackson (“She wear the crown”) and Missy Elliott (“I’ma shut this down”) got you covered. As the latest single from Unbreakable, the singer’s first album in seven years, Jackson brings the fire and burns it up with this pulsating cut that sounds like it was specifically crafted for the Mr. DJ’s out there. Together with Missy, the two deliver a blazing combination.

Funkadelic ft. Kendrick Lamar, “Ain’t That Funkin Kinda Hard On You”

If its funk that you need, then it's only right that funk is what you receive.

After working wonders together on the To Pimp A Butterfly standout “Wesley’s Theory,” George Clinton and Kendrick Lamar hop aboard the funkdafied mothership and land on planet “Ain’t That Funkin Kinda Hard On You.” Teaming with the legendary Funkadelics, K. Dot contributes a winning verse over the groovy remix version of the Louie Vega produced jam. Prep your signature two-step moves, hit play, and be prepared for that funk to get kinda hard on you.

Sam Smith, "Writing's On the Wall"

"I've spent a lifetime running, and I always get away," Sam Smith sings through gently crooned vocals. The latest from music's golden child will appear in the upcoming James Bond film, "Spectre." With Disclosure and Jimmy Napes behind the boards, the velvety ballad will appear on "Spectre" when it arrives on November 6th.
