It's the weekend, and we'll help entertain you.
Wale - The Album About Nothing
Wale is back with his fourth album which is said to be inspired by the hit show Seinfeld. The album also features Jerry Seinfeld on every track. Wale has said that his music and the show are similar since they both talk about current issues in pop culture.
If you want to get a quick overview of the album, I suggest checking out the tracks The White Shoes and The Girls on Drugs [hip-hop]
Madeon - Adventure
Madeon's first made waves back in 2011 when he released the video titled Pop Culture which was a mash-up of 39 of his favorite songs. The house artist's debut album has officially arrived this week. The album features 12 tracks with an 18 track deluxe version. It also has some featured artists with Passion Pit being the biggest.
If you like house music or electronica then this album is for you. Some of my favorite tracks after giving the album a quick listen are La Lune, Beings, and Innocence. [house/electronica]
The Imitation Game
The Imitation Game stars Benedict Cumberbatch who plays as Alan Turing, a real-life war hero and pioneer of modern computing. The movie follows Turing as him and his team try to crack the codes of Germany's Enigma machine during World War II. The film won the Academy Award for the best screenplay as the movie depicted Turing's heroics as well as his fall from grace post-war.
