Hello music lovers of the world! Check out my first playlist! I've got a little something for everyone!
1) "Love Faces" - Trey Songz
"Love Faces" is the second single (following "Bottoms Up") off of Songz's upcoming Passion, Pain and Pleasure LP dropping 09/14/2010. Mr. Songz slows it down and gets back to much of his signature style on this record. Find yourself a pretty lady or a handsome man, press play, and have you a good ole time!
2) "What If I Kissed You" - Drake
This track is a nice switch for Drizzy, who seems to be leaning more on his R&B prowess these days. I'm a fan of the new new. You may be as well.
3) "Power (Remix)" Kanye West feat. Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz
There isn't much to say about this one. The title speaks volumes. Download. Now.
4) "Speechless" Ciara
Production by The Dream on this joint rides smooth (no pun intended). Ci Ci brings hot lyrics as well. Spread the love.
5) "Holding You Down (Remix)" Jazmine Sullivan feat. Wale
J. Sullivan AND Wale!?! Enough said. Carrying on...
6) "First Time" Pleasure P
This is Marcus Cooper's first leaked song (seems like you get no play unless you got a leak...) off his For Your Pleasure, Vol. 1 mixtape. It definitely has a distinct summer-time feel, old school...well...not so old school Pretty Ricky vibe.
7) "Breaking Point" Keri Hilson
Produced by Timabaland, this is the first single off of her forthcoming release, No Boys Allowed. Track is dope and poinent. Reminiscent of a female version of "When A Woman's Fed Up" by Kells. Ms. Keri Babbbbbbyyyy definitely delivers.
8) "Go To Sleep" Lupe Fiasco
Track is on point. Hot lyrics. Dope beat. All there. Enjoy.
9) "Air of The Night" Karina Pasian
Karina won me over with the single "First Love", off of her debut disc. I feel a hit with this one. Beautiful. Check this girl out. One to watch.
10) "Blow Up" J. Cole
If you're working/in school and have dreams bigger than four walls can confine, do yourself a favor and make this an anthem. Check out more motivation from Mr. Cole: "It Won't Be Long" and "No Holding Me Back."
11) "Back In Style" Joss Stone
Baby Aretha's vocals are on point, as always. Bringing "in love" back in style. This track will make your insides tingle.
12) "I Ain't In Love" Fabolous
Sold flow. Two thumbs up.
13) "Gone Already" Faith Evans
She's baaaaaccckkkk! I've always been a Faith fan so, it's exciting to hear new material.
14) "Stroke Your Ego" Usher
Ursher baby. Ha. Song is produced by Danja and reported to be a single on the upcoming Versus LP. Definitely a different sound but, give it a couple of listens.
Just In Case You Haven't Heard...Extra Ear Dope:
"See Me Now" Kanye West feat. Beyonce and Charlie Wilson
"Right Above It" Drake feat. Lil Wayne
"Mojo So Dope" Kid Cudi
"Commander" Kelly Rowland
"Hot Toddy" Usher feat. Jay-Z and Ester Dean
From our ears to yours.
