[AUDIO] Drake - Girls Love Beyonce (feat James Fauntleroy)
Drizzy Drake has something to tell the ladies: Girls all have mad love for Beyonce. The Toronto-Native calls upon on singer/songwriter James Fauntleroy to help him out on this joint that pays homage to the Destiny’s Child member, and even samples their hit single “Say My Name” to seal the deal.
The song itself is something you would typically expect from Drake: a smooth, R&B-crooning track with sensationalized lyrics about his love life—or lack there of, apparently since he professes that it’s hard for a guy like him to commit to a girl…having some “Trust Issues” now are we Drake?
Overall, it’s an ok track. Nothing overtly memorable, but I’m sure it will make rounds on most of your guy’s iPod for a short while. Enjoy.
[AUDIO] Chris Brown - Fine China.
Calling all former R&B Breezy Fans, Chris Brown has a new single for you—and it is awesome. Debuting the first single from his forthcoming album, “X”, Brown leaves behind his dance influences, and goes back to a more authentic R&B sound, that most of us known to love in the first place.
There’s no doubt Breezy reels in a noticeably present Michael Jackson-influence to his song, and it works! The single doesn’t resort to a certain gimmicky ruse or an overpowering sample of an MJ classic, which is probably why this record is a refreshing change for Chris—he’s inviting a back a familiar vibe that we grew to love with back in the “Exclusive” era.
Check it out above, and peep the music video,while you are at it! The choreography is sleek and clean (which I don’t expect any less from Chris Brown himself).
Song of the Day: Kendrick Lamar - Poetic Justice.
As I’m sitting in class trying to pay cautious attention to my anthropology lecture (clearly you can get a sense of how productive I am being right now), I can’t help but have the lyrics of this song from “Poetic Justice,” perusing around my thoughts. This current single from Lamar’s second album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, has been out for quite some time now, and for me, is one of the clear standouts on his album. The rhymes are smooth, and the sampling of Janet Jackson’s “Any Time, Any Place” was just the perfect touch in giving this “slow jam” song some infectious life. It is definitely one of my favourite tracks of the moment, making this my song of the day. Enjoy.
