VIDEO: Drake – “Take Care (Ft. Rihanna)” and “HYFR (Ft. Lil Wayne)”


Drake released two new videos today, both from 2011’s Take Care.

The first is for the title track, featuring Rihanna, and sampling Jamie xx and Gil Scott-Heron’s excellent mix of “I’ll Take Care of U“. It was directed by Yoann Lemoine, and it absolutely nails the atmospherics while highlighting the themes of the song. It’s a beautifully shot clip.

The other is for “HYFR (Hell Ya Fuckin’ Right) (Ft. Lil Wayne)”, and was directed by Director X. It shows footage of Drake getting “re-bar mitzvah’d as a recommitment to the Jewish religion”, and it looks like one hell of a party.

Check them both out below.

BRAND NEW: Rihanna – “We Found Love (Star Slinger Refix)”

Rihanna - We Found Love

Almost surprisingly, I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for this Rihanna tune. It probably has something to do with Calvin Harris being on board, because as far as musicians that can hit a beat go, he’s well and truly up there.

So I jumped at the chance to check out a remix of the track, by none other than Star Slinger – the UK producer who’s been making waves since mid-2010 – and who it’s taken me far too long to notice. This glitchy reinterpretation (not a remix, but a “refix” according to his SoundCloud page) singles out Rihanna’s chorus while putting a much more dominating beat behind it – one of those exciting beats that encourages dancing, but still has that dangerous edge that could throw you.
