B.o.B “So Good”

B.o.B may have scored a brief Top 10 Pop hit with Strange Clouds‘ title cut first single, a Lil’ Wayne-assisted, dub-steppy exercise through harder hip hop terrains, but one didn’t have to be Einstein to expect Mr. Bobby Ray’s follow-up SC release to be more of the blatantly radio-friendly realm. So here we have “So […]

Rihanna featuring Chris Brown “Birthday Cake (Remix)”/ Chris Brown featuring Rihanna “Turn Up The Music (Remix)”

In what’s sure to dominate social media discussions/ debates for the next week or so, the controversial re-teaming of Rihanna and Chris Brown (on wax) has leaked its way to the Web and–surprise surprise–the union arrives via not just one, but two collaborations with each artist adding vocals to the other’s remix (Chris on Rihanna’s […]

Rene Lopez “Shing-a-ling Is What I Bring”

With so many other old-school music eras being repeatedly tapped into to color recordings these days, the idea of “neo-Latin soul” being a thing that becomes omnipresent in 2012 sure sounds welcoming, especially if it promises to dish out more gems like Rene Lopez‘ “Shing-a-ling Is What I Bring”. Stripped from the singer/ songwriter/ multi-instrumentalist’s […]
