Hamilton heads, rejoice! 'The Hamilton Mixtape' is here!

Sound Bites: J. Cole's new album already has a documentary about it, Drake is hella popular on Spotify and that new Childish Gambino is trippy AF.

New non-exclusives

  • The Hamilton Mixtape is here! After being teased for weeks, the whole shebang is out and streaming on all platforms.
  • If you haven't seen "Lemonade," Beyonce was gracious enough to upload a big chunk of it on YouTube in the form of a music video for "All Night," the song that closes the album.
  • Feast your ears on a wild release from Childish Gambino. It's a funky, soulful, rock-infused, experimental departure for FX's "Atlanta" creator and star.
  • The Rolling Stones and John Legend have new albums, too.

New exclusives

  • This week Tidal also livestreamed a YG concert featuring (a personal favorite Bay Area rapper) Kamaiyah, a Jhene Aiko performance at a Moschino fashion show, and shared episode two of its exclusive tour documentary series following up-and-coming rapper 21 Savage.
  • Spotify launched a new weekly playlist called Singles. The playlist features a variety of artists that have recorded music at Spotify's NYC studios.

Drake is like the most popular kid in high school, but for Spotify

Spotify announced that Drake was its most streamed artist of 2016. I'll admit, I played a part in that.

iHeart Radio sets its eyes on Spotify

The internet radio provider announced two new subscriptions; a $5-a-month membership that lets you replay songs on a station's live stream, listen offline and skip songs, and a $10-a-month subscription similar to Spotify's all-you-can-eat situation.

Run The Jewels and Kid Cudi announced new albums

Because having something to look forward to is always nice.
