Each day Complex scours the music blogs for 5 fresh songs that you should listen to in our 5 O'Clock Shuffle post. Instead of going crazy trying to keep up with your RSS feeds everyday, just head over to Complex.com to stay up-to-date on important leaks and releases.
Sometimes we have to look everywhere for the five songs on our Shuffle playlist. Not today. Notable leaks from big artists in the past 24 hours were plentiful and we've rounded up the best of the bunch. N.E.R.D teamed up with Santigold. Big Boi did the same with Gucci Mane. The Killers rocked out for the unexpectedly dope Twilight soundtrack. Yeah, we got all of that and more. Keep reading to start listening and downloading...
ARTIST: N.E.R.D & Santigold
• A live version of this record (with a now-extinct Lil' Wayne verse) has been floating around for some time now. The full-quality version just hit the blogs though. We'd say look out for this on next year's Instant Gratification, but the band's new female member is noticeably absent.
SONG: "Shine Blockas"
ARTIST: Big Boi f/ Gucci Mane
• Here's another one off Sir Luscious Leftfoot. It seems like Big Boi has developed some type of musical companionship with Gucci, which is cool since they make pretty decent tracks together.
SONG: "A White Demon Love Song"
ARTIST: The Killers
• We may or may not care about the next Twilight movie, but it's hard to deny how ill the soundtrack is shaping up to be. We featured a song from it before, and this new one by Brandon Flowers & Co. is even better.
SONG: "Bag Music"
ARTIST: Young Jeezy f/ USDA
• It's always nice when you can still listen to songs from a rapper's crew after the star spits his verse. Jeezy obviously stands out here, but the record is surprisingly dope in its entirety.
SONG: "The Nausea"
• Sure, the Young Money rapper is an easy target for ridicule, but we won't act like the kid hasn't stepped up his rhymes a little bit. This is from his upcoming Black Thoughts mixtape.
