Usher lent a few verses of his own to a special remix of "U.O.E.N.O." Listen to the track inside and hear Wale’s "Love Hate Thing" single…
The "U.O.E.N.O." song is back in the press. After a long and dark association with Rick Ross (who’s been removed from the Rocko track), "The Voice" judge Usher has jumped on board the catchy beat and lent a few verses of his own to the remix. Ans did we hear him say something about another Confessions album?!
While Usher uses the track to brag about his posh lifestyle, he has a few notable achievements which didn’t appear in the song. He’ll soon portray Sugar Ray Leonard in the film Hands of Stone and he’ll receive the ASCAP "Gold Note" Award on Thursday, June 27th during The 26th Annual ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards. About the honor, Usher said in a press release,
"I take the art of song writing and music-making very seriously, so to be given the ASCAP Golden Note Award from an organisation of my fellow music creators is a huge honour."

August Alsina rolls with Rich Gang on the G-Mix to his single “I Luv This Shit,” which appears on his mixtape The Product 2. The New Orleans crooner, who is signed to The-Dream’s Radio Killa Records, adds some new vocals, while the #1 Stunna blesses the track with a billion-dollar verse.
While we still haven’t received the official audio for the single, DJ Fresh Direct has already taken it upon himself to add his own flare to Kanye West’s latest single “New Slaves.” Taking the audio from his recent performance of the single during Saturday Night Live, Fresh Direct reworks the drums and gives the song a more upbeat danceable vibe. As “Yeezy Season” continues to claim the music world, you can check out the remix down below, and for those interested in grabbing a download, you can do so in exchange for a tweet by clicking here.

There’s no denying that Juicy J has been having a good deal of success recently. The latest proof for this comes in the shape of Ke$ha’s “Crazy Kids.” While the original version featured will.i.am you can now listen to a new verse from the Memphis rapper on the refix which officially hits airwaves on Tuesday, May 21.
Ke$ha reunites with Juicy J on the raucous remix to “Crazy Kids,” the third single off her album Warrior. The pop star swaps out will.i.am from the original and replaces him with the Memphis MC, who also appeared on the remix to her first single “Die Young.”
Juicy shows out on his wild verse, throwing bandz and turning up in the club. The remix is scheduled to impact radio on May 21 and a video has also been shot.
Listen to their crazy collabo below.
Danny Brown gets turned up from clubhouse producer Lenkemz who provides this stellar uptempo take on Danny Brown’s still-buzzing hit “Witit.” A lot of Danny’s original song takes precedence, however if your clubhouse and hip-hop blends is your thing, this might be the ideal situation to jam out to. Press play below and let us know what you think.
LA producer Kingdom has chosen to re-up on the closing track from Cassie’s recently released #RockaByeBaby mixtape.

So while we await that delivery, enjoy this remix of Cassie’s cut below. Leave us your thoughts in the comment section.
