New Music Friday: Keith Sweat and Raheem DeVaughn, Yo Gotti, Cordae and Kelis

Two R&B veterans, Keith Sweat and Raheem DeVaughn, collaborated to release their new song, “Can’t Nobody” on Friday.

“I really became a fan of Raheem last year when we worked together and wanted to do a song with him,” Sweat says in a statement. 

“I am truly honored to finally have a record with Keith Sweat,” DeVaughn says. “Keith has sold over 25 million records and is the Godfather of R&B. I look at this collaboration as bridging the gap between generations of R&B crooners.” 

Yo Gotti drops words of wisdom on how to succeed in business in his first new single of the year, “For the Record.” The Memphis rapper is surrounded by Rolls Royce Cullinans, and his convoy is escorted across a desert by a helicopter. Gotti recently became a co-owner of the D.C. United pro soccer team.

Cordae channels the late Muhammad Ali as he declares, “I am the greatest” in the video for his new single, “Super.” Adding that he is “the icon of the century,” the 24-year-old boasts about his wealth — “Last year I made $7 million” — and adds that he will “live life to the fullest with every single breath I take.” 

Finally, Kelis returns with her first single in seven years, “Midnight Snacks.” The “Milkshake” singer commented on Instagram, “Someone recently said to me, I’m always talking about food in my music. I thought about it, and you know what… I do! It isn’t intentional, but it’s something everyone can relate to. It’s very human, it’s sensual, it’s something that you crave. And it’s sexy!”

This is a difficult time for Kelis as earlier this week she revealed that her husband, Mike Mora, is battling stomach cancer.
