Erykah Badu -- "Honey"
Finally! Here's a new joint from Badu's loooong overdue LP, tentatively titled Kahba, due out on her birthday Feb. 26 (cross your fingers). The single CD artwork is quite impressive. As for the track, it was produced by 9th Wonder (of Little Brother fame) and I like the synth-and-strings instrumentation. It should create a new buzz for Erykah on radio.
(**props to Soul Bounce)
Two beautiful performances of two beautiful songs. Check out Alicia Keys performing live these two lovely ballads from her new disc, As I Am. Go out and cop A.K.'s new collection -- it's one of the finest R&B/Soul albums of the year.
Nas (featuring the Game) -- "Hustlers" (Music Video)
Well, well, well. Nas finally releases the "Hustlers" video -- nearly a year after Hip Hop Is Dead was released. Why did Nas waited this long? I can't front, the video is hot!
Anthony Hamilton -- "Do You Feel Me?" (Music Video)
I feel this song -- nice and soulful. The American Gangster soundtrack is a great compilation, as well.
Keyshia Cole -- "Heaven Sent"
Before Keshia's LP, Just Like You, disappears amongst the upcoming CD releases of Alicia Keys and Mary J. Blige, check out this standout track from her collection.
J-Live -- "Feel Like Spittin'"
Have no fear, I'm still listening to rap music. Lyricist J Live is one of the most underrated MCs in the rap game right now. This joint is off the chain!
Styles P -- "Blow Your Mind" (Music Video)
An awesome video.
Jay-Z -- "Roc Boys" (Music Video)
Directed by Chris Robinson (ATL), Jay-Z goes back in time and the present in this celebratory video featuring all of the heavyweights in the game including Diddy and Mariah Carey. The Roc is in the building!
Who is Cheri Dennis? Eh, she's no Cassie. Ha! The single ii-ight.
