Duke University alum Mike Posner dedicates this heartfelt cut to the families of Newtown.
He also had this to say:
I wanted to do SOMETHING for the families and I didn’t know what else to do. Ed Sheeran’s guitar played at the exact moment I heard about the tragedy. The song came out of me faster than any before. It felt wrong not to share it. I hope this finds its way to the proper ears at the proper time. God Bless you. I’m so grateful to be alive. Maybe this terrible day will make sense in Heaven.
With her long awaited Glory EP finally arriving tomorrow via digital outlets, Iggy Azalea slows it down on her sensual cuddy buddy single “Flash” with the multi-talented MC/singer Mike Posner smoothing it out on the hook duties. Warning: “No auto-tune or effects was used in this track.”
What a ill remix of a dope song. Detroit’s Mike Posner and Blackbear gives an acoustic cover over the Rick Ross track, “Stay Schemin’”, featuring Drake and French Montana. It seems a little funny that they skipped over Frenchies verse. You can download the track below.

Saturday night welcomed the Red Bull Soundclash to Miami’s newly renovated Bayfront Park. Over 80,000 onlookers came to witness the battle between singer-songwriter/producer Mike Posner and actor/rapper Ludacris, as well as partake in the NYE festivities.
The high-profile event saw an onslaught of appropriated venders providing delicious food, cold beverages, and other coinciding items to further heighten enjoyment for attendees. Renowned mixtape composer and DJ Mick Boogie kicked off the sounds for the evening, as he ripped the ones and twos and at one point, mixed approximately five tracks in a row from Jay and Kanye’s Watch The Throne — and yes, it was magical.
Luda and Mike Posner each took the stage just before 10pm, as both treated the fans with a few of their popular hits before kicking off the impromptu competition. The Clash saw each artist calling home to his own stage, both facing directly towards each other. Upon going round after round, blow after blow, the pair of high energy performers hit one stage together in letting loose a joint performance, just before counting down to ring in the new year.
If you were unable to attend, just put it this way — it was something you’ll definitely want to check out, if presented the opportunity in the future. Hit the jump to see a few shots from the event, as we hope you all have had an amazing holidays and happy New Year.
