Singles file: Nicki Minaj, Villagers, Stat Quo f. Lauryn Hill
By Allison Stewart
A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...
Nicki Minaj: "Your Love" (Official Mix)
Not only does this Annie Lennox-sampling slow jam provide the best justification yet for Minaj Mania, it almost (almost!) makes us forgive her for the mind-bogglingly terrible "Woo Hoo."
Villagers: "Becoming a Jackal"
If Blitzen Trapper and Damien Rice had a musical baby, it might sound something like this fantastic, fantastical new track from Dublin-based folk-pop band Villagers.
(The Nirvana dubstep remix you've been waiting for, after the jump.)
Savage Skulls featuring Robyn: "Bad Gal" (Crookers Remix)
The mysterious duo teams with the electro princess (and fellow Swede) for this sizzling new track.
Stat Quo featuring Lauryn Hill: "The Hustle"
The underrated rapper helps himself to an unreleased '08 Hill song, "World Is a Hustle." We're pretty sure she's not going to be using it.
Nirvana: "Something in the Way" (Biscope Dubstep Boot)
The South African remixers render Nirvana's "Nevermind" classic even more sinister on this creepy, narcotic remix.
