Hello, again, my fellow music lovers! Check out my second playlist installment, full of the latest and greatest from today’s hottest artists. Enjoy! J
1) “Monster” Kanye West feat. Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj & Rick Ross
Dope. The beat is a Yeezy best. Intricate. New. Uncharted. Love it. However, I hate to say it, but Kanye was upstaged on his own record. Ms. Minaj does the damn thing! Take a listen.
2) “Wake Up Everybody” - John Legend feat. The Roots and Melanie Fiona
I love this, because the lyrical message conveyed through this record is so much more inspiring then any beat could ever be. Listen close. Be the change.
3) “You Just Need Me” - Trey Songz
Trey demonstrates versatility with this track, which is yet another leak off his forthcoming Passion, Pain, & Pleasure album (9/14/10). He incorporates some Euro energy into this record, but still keeps his traditional style throughout. If you’re like me and you can’t get enough of Mr. Songz, check out “Doorbell” and “Alone”, as well.
4) “Love ‘Em All” - Usher
Every record on Usher’s newly released Versus album is bomb, but this is one that gets my highest recommendation. Do yourself a favor and peep the whole disc.
5) “You Be Killin’ Em” - Fabolous
Fabo did his thaaanggg! Rhymes are there. Beat is there. Two thumbs up.
7) “Bottomz Up (Remix)” - Trey Songz feat. Gucci Mane & Wiz Khalifa
Different beat from it’s original, but I like the feel of this record. Gucci and Wiz give it a little extra twist of testosterone.
8) “Loving You No More” - Dirty Money feat. Drake
Drizzy’s verse goes extra hard, but the whole track is good look for Diddy and his Dirty Money crew. Dawn really shines with her vocals. Check it out.
*Chan.Lo. Note: Seems like Diddy is getting more play on the record however, the chorus and his verses are incredibly catchy. This may be another breakthrough single for the DM peeps.
9) “Make a Movie” - Twista feat. Chris Brown
They don’t call him “Mista Tongue Twista” for nothing. The man delivers on this record, in a big way. I am a fan of the Breezy collabo, as well. I feel a new record coming on…
10) “I’m Ready for You” - Drake
This track is just a demo. Beat is dope, though. Whoever picks it up will have a hit on their hands. Certainly worth the early listen.
11) “Movie Night” - Jesse Idol
Jesse is an up-and-coming artist, but this track is too smooth not to mention. Be on the look out for this young man. Bright future ahead!
Worth The Mention:
"Mama" - Lyfe Jennings feat. Anthony Hamilton
"What Up" - Pimp C feat. Drake and Bun B
Until next time,
