Weekly-ish, a pre-approved, snap-judged music guide based on our very scientific, non-subjective Yes/No rating system. There’s really no debating this, come on stop.

Y/N: Miguel’s “goingtohell” and “NWA” videos were previously combined into a short film and now they’re available to view on their own. On the one hand, “goingtohell” has some sexy scenes that could’ve made for good soft porn cinema if done right. On the other, “NWA” wasn’t able to hold my attention for 10 seconds before I switched to another tab. [Idolator]

Y: Weezer’s “Go Away” with Best Coast is basically a scram anthem (a scramthem) and the video gives Tinder a proper send-up. [Billboard]

Y: Shot in Matera, Italy, Jaden Smith’s “Scarface” video looks very dimly lit. You and I can barely see what’s happening with our regular eyes. But Jaden sees it all clearly. What’s in the dark will soon come to light. [Billboard]

N: Drake’s alarmingly chill approach to silencing Meek Mill on his diss song “Charged Up” is commendable—and I like that he mentions the Stanky Legg—but I’m not super impressed. His love taps don’t land hard enough. [Miss Info]

Y: The more I hear The Weeknd’s “I Can’t Feel My Face,” the more I wanna hit up a disco in the shiniest outfit ever. In the video, The Weeknd is doing MJ moves on stage and then ends up on fire, so he’s literal flames. [Miss Info]

N: Tisha Campbell Martin (who we know and love as Gina from Martin) made a real song called “Steel Here.” Yes, she started her career out singing. She’s singing here, too. Listen to her sing... [YBF]

N: In Disclosure’s “Omen” video, Sam Smith is at some kinda orgy party where everyone is high and sweatily grinding on each other in slow motion. Slo-Mo Sam Smith is at the party alone, though :(. So utterly alone. [MTV]

Y: “Why’d You Call?” The title of this song alone makes me love it, and Ty$ and ILoveMakonnen are basically a dynamic duo of drunken warbling. [Rap-Up]

Y: Little Mix did a hybrid of Jason Derulo’s imposing pop jam “Want to Want Me” and Whitney’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and yes it is worthy. [Billboard]

Y: Kehlani’s video for “The Way” has appropriately sexy hump moves and other suggestive choreo, plus Chance the Rapper. [Fader]

N: Jordin Sparks’ “100 Years” sounds gentle and unassuming to the point of eliciting boredom. [That Grape Juice]

Y: Banks’ voice is so good and raspy on this new version of Chet Faker’s “1998.” Also, 1998 was my favorite year in music. [Idolator]
