Best Tyga Songs of All Time – Top 5 Tracks

Tyga is making the hottest come back with his latest album Legendary.

Tyga (a backronym for Thank you God always), is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, and television personality. After a number of independent releases, Tyga signed a recording contract with Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records in 2008. His major label debut Careless World: Rise of the Last King was released in 2011 and included the successful singles “Rack City”, “Faded” featuring Lil Wayne, “Far Away” featuring Chris Richardson, “Still Got It” featuring Drake, and “Make It Nasty”.

After disagreements with Young Money, Tyga’s fourth album The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty was released independently on June 23, 2015 and became his worst selling album to that point, selling just 5000 equivalent album units in its first week.

After a long period of poor sales and negative reviews from previous albums, his May 2018 single, “Taste” featuring Offset, peaked at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, being his first Top 40 single since “Ayo” with Chris Brown in 2015. That single would later serve as the lead single for his seventh album Legendary, which was eventually released in 2019. Tyga is well known for his scene in Los Angeles and now making appearances in Las Vegas with Hakkasan. You can check out the upcoming events at Hakkasan Here.

Best Future Songs of All Time – Top 5 Tracks

Future is not only at the top of the rap world, he’s creating his own genre.

Future is one of the hottest American rappers of the recent times; he has everything going for him–the fan following, the music, the sound and the chartbusting albums. He has been dubbed by Billboard as the ‘Future of the Music’. And why not, for he officially became the first ever artist to knock out his own album (FUTURE) from the number 1 spot to replace it with yet another album of his (HNDRXX). His most recent EP Save Me was a follow up to his highly anticipated album The WZRD. The album was everything a rap fan wanted and included features from Travis Scott, Young Thug & Gunna.

With this, Future became the only musician in the Billboard’s history to ever debut two back-to-back #1 albums. Interestingly, it was his cousin who first introduced him to music and rapping. Little did Future know that his fate would be sealed and so would be his stage name for life. Since 2010, Future has released several mixtapes and albums, each of which have charted to the top spot. In 2015, Future hit it big internationally with his chartbursting album ‘DS2’ and super hit mixtape ‘What A Time To Be Alive’. With a universal influence and omnipresent chart dominance, Future surely seems to be the ‘Future’ of music. You can find Future perform live in Las Vegas at Drai’s Nightclub. You can check out the upcoming events at Drai’s Nightclub here.

Best Drake Songs of All Time – Top 5 Tracks

With some of this generations best music hits, Drake has claimed the record for most Billboard hot 100 entries ever. Drake rewrites the record for the most entries ever on the Billboard Hot 100, as he lands his 208th career title on the latest list, dated March 21.

TV and rap star Drake is best known in Canada for playing wheelchair-bound Jimmy Brooks on ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation,’ and for hit songs like “Take Care,” “One Dance” and “Hotline Bling.” The multi-Grammy-award-winning rapper Drake has had two shots at fame — and nailed them both. He first came to prominence in the teen soap Degrassi: The Next Generation in the role of Jimmy Brooks, a wheelchair-bound character he played for seven years. After leaving the show he became one of the biggest rappers on the planet after signing a deal with Lil Wayne’s label Young Money Entertainment. He is rarely out of the headlines, whether it’s for dating Rihanna or Jennifer Lopez, founding his own label, OVO Sound, or fronting the NBA’s Toronto Raptors as the team’s global ambassador. It’s no surprise that Jay Z labeled him as the Kobe Bryant of hip hop.

Drake is known for his egotistical lyrics, technical ability, and integration of personal backstory when dealing with relationships with women. His vocal abilities have been lauded for an audible contrast between typical hip-hop beats and melody, with sometimes abrasive rapping coupled with softer accents, delivered on technical lyricism. His songs often include audible changes in lyrical pronunciation in parallel with his upbringing in Toronto, and connections with Caribbean and Middle Eastern countries which include such phrases as “ting”, “touching road”, “talkin’ boasy” and “gwanin’ wassy”. Most of his songs contain R&B and Canadian hip hop elements, and he combines rapping with singing. He credits his father with the introduction of singing into his rap mixtapes, which have become a staple in his musical repertoire. His incorporation of melody into technically complex lyrics was supported by Lil Wayne, and has subsequently been a critically acclaimed component to Drake’s singles and albums.

Las Vegas residents can get used to seeing Drake around. The 6 God kicked off his Sin City residency on May 4, 2019 with a performance at the Wynn’s XS Nightclub. The boy is slated to make his return to Vegas as part of his lucrative 10-show run, which is reportedly paying him $10 million in the city of sin. You can check out the events at Wynn’s XS here.

Best Calvin Harris Songs of All Time – Top 5 Tracks

Adam Richard Wiles, known in the dance world as CALVIN HARRIS – went from posting his music online to producing material for Rihanna and selling millions under his own name within a few years. A talented remixer and DJ as well, he has won Grammys and MTV VMA awards, broke Michael Jackson’s record for the most U.K. Top Ten singles from one album, and was named Forbes’ highest earning DJ in 2013.

Born on January 17, 1984, in the southern Scotland city of Dumfries, Harris was first attracted to electronic music in his teens and was recording bedroom demos by 1999. Two of these songs, “Da Bongos” and “Brighter Days,” were released as a 12″ club single and CD-EP by the Prima Facie label in early 2002 under the artist name Stouffer. With that single to his credit, the still teenaged Harris moved from Scotland to London, but as a very small fish in one of the world’s largest and most competitive ponds, Harris floundered; only one of his songs was released during his time in London, “Let Me Know” with vocalist Ayah on the Unabombers’ 2004 live-mix CD Electric Soul, Vol. 2.

Returning home to Dumfries, Harris began posting homemade solo recordings to his MySpace page. Along with his work as a solo artist, including touring in front of a full live band, Harris quickly became an in-demand remixer — working on singles by Jamiroquai, Groove Armada, All Saints, and CSS. He also wrote and produced songs for Kylie Minogue’s 2007 comeback album, and collaborated with Dizzee Rascal on “Dance wiv Me,” which reached number one in the U.K.

His second album – Ready for the Weekend, topped the U.K. albums chart and peaked at number 12 on Billboard’s U.S. dance/electronic chart. Through 2011, Harris took on production work for other artists including Rihanna (“We Found Love,” a quadruple-platinum hit in the U.S.), while he also issued two more of his own singles (the Kelis collaboration “Bounce” and “Feel So Close”). Harris’ third solo album, 18 Months, was a collaboration-filled affair that featured “We Found Love” and “Bounce,” plus vocal spots from Ellie Goulding, Florence Welch, and Ne-Yo, among others. It was released in October 2012, hit number one on the U.K. albums chart, and reached number 19 in the U.S.

Forbes reported that he was the highest-earning DJ of 2013; according to the publication, he made 46 million U.S. dollars — 14 million more than runner-up Tiësto. Harris continued to roll and released “Summer,” the lead single for his fourth album, in March 2014.

Calvin Harris just extended his residency with Hakkasan Group in Las Vegas through 2020 for an eyepopping $280 million, which works out to roughly 1 million per show played. Calvin Harris has upcoming shows at Omnia and Wet Republic. Calvin Harris has also headlined all the major festivals, including Ultra Miami, Coachella, and EDC.

Best Gryffin Songs of All Time – Top 5 Tracks

GRYFFIN was born in San Francisco, California. Dan Gryffith grew up as a classically trained pianist and learned to play the guitar at an early age. He played in bands to initially hone his instrumental abilities. He studied electrical engineering at the University of Southern California where he took much of his leisure time in his dorm room to work on music. When asked on his key lessons of music production, he said: “At the beginning, I just released music with the main goal of having my friends play it at college parties and I never would have imagined it would get to this point”. He made his ‘world’ debut at the SnowGlobe Music Festival 2015.

With his debut single “Heading Home” featuring Josef Salvat, Gryffin introduced the world to his magnetic take on electronic music: infinitely melodic, immaculately composed, massive in emotion.

Best Nora En Pure Songs of All Time – Top 5 Tracks

Daniela Niederer (born July 20, 1990), better known by her stage name Nora En Pure, is a South African-Swiss DJ and deep house producer.

She first found creative inspiration, weaving her influences of South African roots in combining an exotic setting accompanied by tribal percussion sounds and a melody composed by classical instrumentation, either by wind instruments and piano chords and harmonious synthesizers often integrating organic nature sounds.

Having travelled a lot in her life, Nora En Pure music should create a sort of wanderlust. Being part of the Helvetic Nerds in Switzerland and the main force of the Enormous Tunes label, her tracks as well as the label’s releases have developed a characteristic sound, that is well recognizable. Nora En Pure was one of the first artists of her kind of melodic deep house sound. Instead of following the trend towards the more commercial vocal melodic house, the productions and live sets always remained unique connecting dots between different and disparate sounds, styles and scenes with ease and in her own raw style setting her apart from the mainstream.

Nora recently landed a residency with Wynn Nightlife in Las Vegas, playing shows at Encore Beach Club, EBC At Night, and XS.
