Drake’s rolling out new music in celebration of Raptors NBA Championship win

Published

Drake is so hype about the Raptors win you would think he was playing in the NBA Finals himself.

Being the megafan that he is, the hip-hop star is celebrating the team’s sweet victory with some new music –– it’s about time!

Drizzy announced via Instagram live last night that he will be releasing two new tracks scheduled to drop sometime today (June 14). Entitled “Omertá” and the Rick Ross-featured “Money in the Grave,” surprising his followers with an over-the-top caption, “THE CHIP TO THE 6!!!!!!!!!!!!”

The Toronto Raptors ambassador also revealed he’ll be the one designing the rings for the Raptors amid poking fun at Klay Thompson, referring to the time the Warriors SG called him a “bum a**” and saying that he’ll let that incident go.

“Yo Klay, when you’re wakeboarding this summer in your Quiksilver shorts, you know what time it is. When you see me, you better wave — friendly, too,” he teased.

Drake believes, “That dynasty’s over.” “We did what we had to do. Praying for KD, praying for Big Papi, but tonight belongs to Toronto.”

Nora Rothman and Cape Francis release “Fifteen / Feet” just in time for Summer

Published

on

Emily Knecht

Earlier this month, singer-songwriter and activist Nora Rothman debuted the first single off her forthcoming EP titled “Nothing New.” The lead single, “strange,” set the tone for the ethereal project that takes influence from folk and soul for a sound Popdust describes as “dream-pop gauziness and 70’s folk motifs.” 

Today, ahead of the EP’s July 12th release, Rothman is debuting another cut from the project, this time a collaboration with Cape Francis on “fifteen / feet.”

Produced by Kate Ellwanger (aka DOT) and co-written with Cape Francis, “fifteen / feet” is a song described as “as foreboding as it is wondrous” by Atwood Magazine. The three-minute composition is a lush soundscape of organic instrumentation, driven by guitar and drums, that acts as an ideal foundation to showcase Rothman’s soft vocals and poetic songwriting.

“This EP includes songs from the past five years, like random pages ripped out of a diary,” describes Rothman. “The EP explores newness, nostalgia, and the negative space between them. In the end, it’s really nothing new — we’ve all been here before.”
