Leak Alert: Nicki Minaj – Your Love (Remix) ft. Flo Rida

31 May

Nicki Minaj - Your Love

It looks like Nicki Minaj isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Don’t get me wrong I like her but it’s about time she put out some credible solo material. To be fair most of the tracks she features on are pretty good. Anyhow Nicki has teamed up with Flo Rida for the remix of her latest single, ‘Your Love’ which is a cover of Annie Lennox’s 90s hit, ‘No More I Love Yous’. To be really honest, getting Flo Rida on the track was not necessary and just taints an already mediocre offering from Miss Minaj.

Video: Snoop Dogg – That Tree ft. Kid Cudi (Behind The Scenes)

3 Apr

Snoop - That Tree

Check out some behind the scnes footage of the Snoop Dogg and Kid Cudi collabo, “That Tree”.  Considering that it’s Snoop, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know whhat type of tree he’s talking about! The video was directed by Erick Peyton and features Snoop and Cudi in a cardboard cut-out winter wonderland. I definitely like this track and I think that Cudi and Snoop compliment each other’s style. “That Tree” was produced by Diplo and appears on Snoop Dogg’s new album, More Malice which is a re-release of his “Malice N Wonderland” album. It also includes a DVD mini-movie starring Snoop Dogg as a super hero called Malice. Interesting.

Has Usher Reclaimed His RnB Crown With ‘Raymond v Raymond’?

15 Mar

Raymond v. Raymond

Raymond v Raymond is the long-awaited and controversially titled album from Usher due for official release on 26th March. Interest in the album has no doubt been fuelled by the lack of singles Usher’s had in the past year as well as his not-so-private divorce from Tameka Foster.

Raymond v Raymond has a good mixture of tracks, the majority of which are mid-tempo so anyone yearning for an album full of ballads or slow jams will be disappointed. However, There Goes My Baby and Okay will fill the void nicely  if that’s what you’re looking for. Monstar is not too bad either but it’s rather long at 5:02 minutes. Personally, the only stand out tracks on this album are the ones with features like  OMG ft. Will.I.Am and Lil Freak ft. Nicki Minaj, so i’d suggest that Ursh puts the features out as singles if he’s trying to get back into the hotspot – although I do think Daddy’s Home holds it own and is a certified hit.

Despite any criticism that he may receive, Raymond v Raymond is most definitely a comeback album for Usher who  fell off the RnB radar, however for now the title of RnB king still remains firmly in the hands of Trey Songz with Chris Brown in close second.

Leak Alert: T.I – Dope House ft. Bun B

15 Mar

T.I

Right now T.I can do no wrong. We’ve all been waiting for some new material from the ex-jailbird, who is set to release his 7th studio album later this year. Dope House totally reaffirms that Southern hip hop can be hard and isn’t just crunking and jerking – exactly what the game needs right now!

Leak Alert: Madonna – Fear ft. Trey Songz

15 Mar

Madonna

When I heard that Madge had a track called Fear featuring Trey Songz, I was surprised as it’s an unlikely match. I’m personally not feeling it which is a shame, as I’m a big Songz fan, but I thought i’d share it with you anyways!

Leak Alert: Lloyd – Bad Girl (Freaky Girl) ft. Twista + Set Me Free ft. Mystikal

15 Mar

Lloyd

There have been a few releases over the past few days which I have not posted because to be honest I just didn’t want to. However, Interscope’s latest signing Young Goldie aka Lloyd has two leaks floating around at the net at the moment.

Set Me Free is a silky smooth joint that had me singing along, but Mystikal’s feature totally spoils the track. However, Bad Girl (Freaky Girl) featuring Twista serves as a worthy follow up to the Young Money and Lloyd collaboration, Bedrock with its good vibe and catchy lyrics.

Leak Alert: Marques Houston – Noize

12 Mar

Marques Houston

Marques Houston has always been an artist I’ve admired (even through the dodgy periods in the noughties when his artistic direction started to take on an Usher-type persona). but nobody can deny that Naked was a classic, a ‘modern’ take on D’Angelo’s Untitled. Well, now Mr. Houston is back with Noize, the new single from his forthcoming album Mattress Music. He totally restores the faith in anyone that may have lost it and delivers that good old Houston ‘sex’ song. Can’t wait to hear some more tracks.

Leak Alert: Chris Brown – Ludacris ‘How Low’ Freestyle

10 Mar

Chris Brown

Despite all that’s been said about Chris Brown, he has continued to prove to us all, why he made it in the first place. Pure vocal ability. Breezy kills this freestyle of Luda’s How Low. Love it.

Leak Alert: T.I – I’m Back

10 Mar

T.I

As Weezy starts his one year stint at Rikers on gun charges another son of Hip Hop steps back into the limelight. T.I is officially back and wants us all to know about it. Tip brings the fire in his usual manner on I’m Back alhough it’s a track that could easily be mistaken for something off the T.I vs. T.I.P album. I like it anyways, it’s as if  he was never gone – bring on 2010!

Leak Alert: Ludacris – Rollercoaster ft. Shawnna & Dru Hill

10 Mar

Ludacris

Luda’s Battle of the Sexes just dropped and Rollercoaster ft. Shawnna and Dru Hill is the bonus track on the album. The Dru Hill and Ludacris collaboration really works, their silky smooth vocals perfectly compliment Luda’s mellow tone on this seductive joint, and well Shawnna is Shawnna.
