Let’s get into the truth. This arrived in our inbox last week so naturally we had to put it on the table.
Fa$t Life is back at it again with a new hit! Fa$t Life (Ed Weathers) has dropped songs with Southside, Future, 2 Chainz and more and the hot Atlanta artist has only been back on the scene for a month or so. Here we are again with another release and this time, Fa$t Life is with Waka Flocka on the hook! We expect more music and more heavy weights to accompany Fa$t Life for the entire fourth quarterof 2016!
Legendary: Starting with an alluring intro the track takes off with a up North feel. The beat puts you in the mind of a 90’s party in the basement with the whole crowd jumping.
Truth be told, we have no idea who Fa$t Life is (with his FINE ass) or what he’s really talking about. The track jumps between someone being the King of Rap and then having to struggle growing up. The track is one made for a street movement and has the potential to catch on to the consumer base of done right.
#TSB Favorite Line: “I’m a take a Leap this Year, February!”
Visual: Great visual. Perfect colors for the feel of the track. The blue effect give a darkness that isn’t too dark and matches the beat.
Beat: The Beat and Quality are up to par. The beat really carries the song as it forces your body to rock and get in the zone.
Overall: Overall, with all things combined, we rate this track a 6/10. Fa$t Life could have done this by himself. The addition of Wala did nothing for the track.
Make sure to press play and tell us what your thoughts are. According to the interns, they just wanna catch him on his tour bus and show him a Fa$t Life. LoL! Don’t forget to show the artist some love!

The song follows “Bad”, Vassy’s collaboration with David Guetta. It was a summer smash! The music video for “Bad” has had nearly 200 million views to date. Check it out at:
Bad girl Vassy lands at the #1 spot on Billboard’s Club Chart with Hustlin’, her latest club banger that pays homage to Crystal Waters’ nineties house classic, Gypsy Woman. It’s just the latest fete in what has been a phenomenal year for the Australian-born beauty.
Her David Guetta & Showtek- produced rebel anthem, Bad, went Platinum internationally this summer, climbing to the Top 10 on the pop charts. Another single, We Are Young, was featured in the trailer for Disney’s Oscar-winning film Frozen and in an ad campaign for Target. It was also selected as the theme for the music video awards show in Greece. In The Sun served as the soundtrack for Pepsi’s Real Big Summer campaign and the infectious Lucky Day track was featured in Victoria Secret’s Body by Victoria commercial.
Produced by Dave Audé and Crazibiza, Hustlin’ has been causing a stir in the underground club scene since August. It topped the Beatport chart earlier this fall. Crystal Waters has come out in full support of the record, even appearing in the song’s music video, directed by Vassy and Michelangelo Reyes.
“The idea was not to remake Gypsy Woman,” explains Vassy. “Why do that? The original is perfection. We wanted to reinterpret the track; re-invent it for today’s dance floor. It was important for me to smack my own stamp on it.”
Like the nineties version, Hustin’ is about aggressively chasing one’s dreams at all costs. That’s exactly what Vassy has done. In addition to creating hits for herself, she has written and collaborated with artists like Pitbull, Scooter, Paris Hilton, AfroJack, Sultan & Ned Sheperd and Bob Sinclar. Her music has been featured on TV’s Grey’s Anatomy, Human Target, Ugly Betty and Nickelodeon’s Dora The Explorer; on The Sims and FIFA 08 video games; and in commercials for Hilton Hotels, Chevrolet, Sketchers, Google and Diet Sprite. In January, her Real Love single will be featured in a new Target commercial running through April.
She says she learned early on in life that it was better to stand out than play it safe. At seven, she remembers being kicked out of her school choir because she wouldn’t sing along with the rest of the chorus. “I wanted to sing solo,” she explains. She would eventually leave Australia to pursue her music dreams in America.
In 2010, Vassy released her first track, History. Produced by Richard Vission, the song’s soulful dance drive played heavily on KISS FM and Power 106 in Los Angeles, as well as nationally on MTV. She followed it with a string of Top 10 Billboard dance hits, including Mad, a club track she co-wrote and produced with Phil Bentley and Dave Audé.
However, it was her collaboration with David Guetta & Showtek on Bad that launched Vassy’s music career into overdrive. Its music video on YouTube has nearly 200 million views and has exposed Vassy to millions of new fans around the world. USA Today spotlighted her as a rising EDM vocalist alongside Matthew Koma (Wasted), Bebe Rexha (Take Me Home) and John Martin (Don’t You Worry Child).
In the USA Today article, Vassy explained the groundswell appeal of EDM: “It lives in its own world. (Success) doesn’t even mean radio — its fan base is so hardcore. They need us and we need them. They play to massive crowds and we put a melody and lyric to songs that allow them to connect with people on an authentic level.”
For 2015, Vassy is gearing to release her debut album, We Are Young. It is a fun, upbeat, quirky, soulfully dynamic album of indie-laced anthems and gems. “It is free spirited and playful, like me,” she says.
“This next chapter in my life is about being courageous,” she continues. “In 2015, I’m standing tall, proud and loud. And having fun, of course!”
Hustlin’ is available on iTunes now. For more information on Vassy, visit her official website: http://www.kissmyvassy.com.
