Ahead of the release of her highly-anticipated sophomore album Far From Home, out February 7th on Soundly Music, singer/songwriter Aubrie Sellers shares poignant new track “Haven’t Even Kissed Me Yet.” The tender love song showcases Aubrie’s delicate voice and introspective songwriting, laying her emotions bare at the start of a new relationship as she confides, “you’re already playing games with my head, and you haven’t even kissed me yet.” The intimacy and vulnerability of the song are echoed in the track’s Chloé-Aktas-directed acoustic video, featuring Aubrie accompanied solely by her guitar in the same motel room that the film Drive, starring Ryan Gosling, was shot.

Call Him “Mr. Glock”: PRE’s Key Glock Demands Respect in His New Video

One of the South’s most promising risers, Key Glock annihilates tracks with his blunt-force flow. Flexing on his haters and demanding respect, Glock shares “Mr. Glock,” an impossibly hard new video single. With a backing track that recalls the tension-heavy trap made by Memphis icons DJ Paul and Juicy J, “Mr. Glock” provides the perfect canvas for Glock to expand his arsenal of flows, switching up his patter in each ultra-confident verse: “Never leave the house without my muthaf*ckin’ strap/I was 14-years-old with that muthaf*ckin’ sack/I don’t f*ck with none of these rappers, they know that.” In the video, directed by Iconick/RayRayFilm, Glock mobs with his crew in front of his bright yellow Rolls Royce SUV–the same one that graces the cover of his upcoming Yellow Tape.
