Press Play...No One Man Should Have All This...Music.

Guys and Dolls:

Elena is back with a slew of new music to quinch the thirst of your eardrums.  Download, press play, listen, and relate.

Peace. Love. Music.



1.) "Just The Way You Are (Remix)" - Bruno Mars feat. Lupe Fiasco

I loved the first version of this song (as did thousands of others) but, Lupe definitely provides a dope spin to this mainstream pop hit. His presence could be felt a bit more, aside from the few bars he's given but, other than that, this remix is superb.

2.) "Lonely (Remix)" - Brisco feat. Rick Ross

The hook on this track is what, initially, got me hooked. Ricky Rozay’s verse is too smooth, and that low-key vibe is perfect for all you mellow souls looking to cop a glass of wine and chillax on the patio.  Perfect tune.

3.) "Forever" - The Floacist (Natalie Stewart of Floetry) feat. Musiq Soulchild

This track is so sexy, to me. I love Floetry, so it’s no surprise that I dig Marsha Ambrosius and Natalie Stewart as independent artists, as well. Beautiful music and the addition of Musiq seals the deal.  If you love neo-soul, make this a permanent piece in your playlist.

4.) "Freaky Dance" - Trey Songz feat. T.I. and Swizz Beats

Surprisingly absent from Trey’s newly released Passion, Pain & Pleasure album (cop it, if you haven’t), this record is a definite club banger. It’s got a slightly predictable Swizzy beat, but T.I. brings that fire that’ll have you groovin’, nonetheless. One word: Dope!

4.) "Don’t Wanna Be In Love"  - Ne-Yo

The Gentleman’s pen game is on POINT.  Lyrics are superb however, it will be nice to see if he can produce something completely unpredicatable.  However, Ne-Yo's talent is no surprise. Download and check it out for yourself.

5.) "Lord, Lord, Lord" - Kanye West feat. Mos Def, Swizz Beats, Raekwon and Charlie Wilson

Powerhouse much? Mr. West goes IN on this one. After being slightly upstaged by featured artists on recent records, it’s nice to see him take the spotlight back.  The addition of Charlie Wilson only adds an old soul feel to an already classic joint. Get ‘em Ye!

6.) "Still A Girl" – Keri Hilson

A track from her upcoming release, there is only one word to describe this tune: Relatable. The lyrics tell a familiar story, and the beat is undeniably catchy. I’d say Ms. Keri Baby has a definite radio hit on her hands.

7.) "She’s Single" – Raheem DeVaughn

Raheem certainly creates a whole new mood with his soulful, sensual take on Weezy’s track, “Single”.  Not too sure about the flow on this one but, its a nice reverse on a popular hit. I like it, but i’ll let you be the judge.

8.) "Our Generation (J. Period Remix)" – John Legend feat. The Roots, Pete Rock & CL Smooth

John Legend never fails to deliver.  He and The Roots are collaborating on some GREAT feel good music. His words are magnetic, and his message is powerful. This is an amazing record.

9.) "Spot Right There" – New Boyz feat. Teairra Mari

I didn't know about this one when I first heard it. However, I say give this one a chance. It’ll grow on you. Promise. ;)

10.) "Bad Don’t Seem So Wrong" – Trae feat. Lupe Fiasco

Lupe is back putting in work.  The chorus isn’t the best, but these lyrics via the verse's are indisputably bomb. I’ve been waiting for a Trae/Lupe collabo, and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint.

In Case You Haven’t Heard:

"G.O.O.D Friday" - Kanye West feat. Common, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Big Sean and Charlie Wilson

"Give A Little More" - Maroon 5

"Memories" - Cali Swag District feat. David Guetta

Happy downloading!
