LIZ+NP_Stripes_FINAL

LIZ teams up with fashion label NICOPANDA to drop a new mixtape + fashion editorial for the brand's F/W 2016 collection: Cross Your Heart is 33 minutes of glittery, irresistible feel-good pop, featuring diverse but uniformly dope production from Branchez, Henrik the Artist, and more, as well as a verse from Vic Mensa, and a remix of LIZ's fizzy SOPHIE collab from last year, "When I Rule the World"...

listen to the finished version of Maggie Rogers’ “Alaska”

MAGGIE ROGERS ALASKA

It's fun when a song that has been so incessantly hyped -- and was, by any measure, already a hit before it was even finished -- ends up being as good as you'd hoped.
