Jill Scott – So Gone (What My Mind Says) feat. Paul Wall
If you haven’t copped Jill Scott’s new album “The Light Of The Sun” yet, allow us to give you another nudge towards your
neighborhood music store iTunes. This song is exactly why you fell in love with Jilly From Philly to begin with. And Paul Wall? We had no idea, sir!
Chris Brown & Bow Wow – I’m Da Man
Dear Hip-Hop/R&B newcomers: Boweezy and Breezy want you to know that they have no intention of giving up their respective titles as the Prince of Hip-Hop and Prince of R&B, respectively. They also intend on bagging all the ITCHES. They wrote a song about it. Like to hear it? Here it go.
Alicia Keys – Typewriter
Remember when that intriguing little lightskinned girl with the piano popped up on the R&B scene, paying visits to prisons with her ballads? The album that first introduced us to her, Songs In A Minor is now ten years old. And to get you ready for it’s celebratory re-release, we bring you a track that didn’t make it the first go ’round.
Eve – Just Watch Me
Maybe E-V-E isn’t ready to retire and be some rich man’s wife just yet! We love how she’s able to deliver a competitive rhymes on this joint without sounding like anyone but Eve. The beat, on the other hand, is an acquired taste that might never work for some people. (Shouts to RnBExclusives.com)
Mary J. Blige – Hero
Everybody kept saying they missed sad Mary. So she made “We Ride,” which was really just a sad-sounding happy song about how y’all unhappy haters can’t steal her joy. And now she gives us this… which sounds like a one-step-from-the-pipe cry for help.
