New Music Feature: Lion Babe – “Hit The Ceiling”

Today, New York-based duo LION BABE have shared their latest song, “Hit The Ceiling.” Produced by the band’s own Astro Raw – aka Lucas Goodman – the track is LION BABE at their most essential. Mixing funk, soul, electronics and singer Jillian Hervey’s signature sultry vocals, the song arrives just in time for the start of Summer.

“Hit The Ceiling” is the latest song to be offered from LION BABE’s forthcoming new project, which is set for release later in 2017. Earlier this year, the band shared the first taste of the project via the funk jam “Rockets” featuring Moe Moks, which received its first look on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program. The forthcoming project will be the first studio release from LION BABE since their 2016 debut album, Begin. That album, which was released amid a wave of acclaim and attention, featured the career-defining singles “Jump Hi” and “Treat Me Like Fire,” and found the duo collaborating with the likes of Pharrell Williams and Childish Gambino. Last summer, the duo released the sun-kissed mixtape Sun Joint, which coincided with their first headline US tour and a string of international festival performances, including Glastonbury, ESSENCE, Afropunk, Reading & Leeds and more.

Recently, LION BABE’s Astro Raw shared his debut mixtape project, rawmix vol 1. The 14-track project mixes Astro Raw’s stellar, one-of-a-kind production with his infectious, genre-defying sounds, seamlessly mixing R&B, hip-hop, soul, funk and dance. It’s a sound that The 405 described as “sonic crack.” To listen to rawmix vol. 1, click here.

[ione_embed src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/UGF5XUI39Og service=youtube width=854 height=480 type=iframe]

Migos stops by Sway In The Morning on the brink of their new album release Culture. The trio speaks with Sway Calloway as the industry vet gave them props for leading the new rap culture, and sticking together for so many years.

Since their mentioned by Atlanta‘s Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino at the 2017 Golden Globes during his win, Migos’ “Bad And Boujee” charted at #1 on Billboard Hot 100 spot with a 240% spike in sales, literally within 24-48 hours.

During the interview, Quavo, Takeoff and Offset capped off a freestyle with only later being surprised by legendary actor Laurence Fishburne.

Check it out above.

To add, a petition has been raised for Migos to replace Lady Gaga at the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime show.

In addition to the replacement, the request also states that the Preshow should include Rae Sremmurd, Gucci, Goodie Mob, Ludacris and Young Jeezy, Young Thug needs to sing “Guwop Home”, the official anthem of Atlanta, Andre 3000 should sing the national anthem with Erykah Badu. By sing, they mean hit Donald Trump with a FIRE 64 bars. Lastly, the halftime should be Migos killing “Bad and Boujee,” Future with “March Madness”, then Outkast comes out and does an AQUEMINI sampler and then they end it with Bun B and Jay Z doing “Big Pimpin.”

Thoughts?
