New Music: Theophilus London f/ Kanye West – ‘Can’t Stop’

Kanye West and Theophilus London

When he’s not working on his own album, Kanye West has been overseeing projects for Tyga, French Montana, and Theophilus London. Yeezus serves as executive producer of the latter’s new album Vibes and guests on the blissful “Can’t Stop.” He delivers a glorious verse over the soulful production, which is reminiscent of his Dark Twisted days.

“It’s alright, but it ain’t Ralph though / And unless your money talkin’, keep your mouth closed,” raps ‘Ye. “We smokin’ indo outdoor in Palo Alto / If this party ain’t got hoes, my intro’s my outro.”

“The goal was to get back to a happy place in my life,” London told The FADER of Vibes. “I went through some dark times. On this album, I was chasing demons and sacrificing a lot. I’m just excited that I could make a piece of work that I’m happy about, that my great aunt was spiritually here for me to help me finish writing this album.”

In addition to getting the Yeezus co-sign, London has tapped fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld to shoot the artwork for the album, which drops November 4.

Stream the entire album including the Kanye-assisted “Can’t Stop” below.

New Music: Teyana Taylor f/ Chris Brown – ‘Do Not Disturb’

Do Not Disturb

With a week to go until her first album VII hits stores, Teyana Taylor unlocks her steamy duet with Chris Brown, “Do Not Disturb.” The R&B crooners take it nice and slow while trading tantalizing verses on the bedroom burner, for which she previously premiered a video.

“It’s one of those slow animated songs,” G.O.O.D. Music’s First Lady told Rap-Up TV of the sex-drenched collaboration.

Teyana also heats up the screen in the video snippet for “Request,” the latest release in her #TeyanaTuesdays series. A blonde Teyana fogs up the phone booth while making a call to her lover.

Due November 4, VII features production from Bangladesh, Harmony, Boi-1da, Hit-Boy, and The Order, with appearances from Pusha T, Yo Gotti, and Fabolous.
