This is the first single for the Dallas soul-singer Erykah Badu off her upcoming album New Amerykah pt.2: Return of the Ankh which drops March 30th (hopefully). At any rate, Lil Wayne does his thing on the track, no singing, just straight hip-hop. It took me a few listens, but now I am really feeling this song. Good party joint. What do you think about it?

Woo hoo!! Grammy-nominated artist Janelle Monae is coming back with a new album May 18th named, The ArchAndroid, but first she is dropping 2 singles for us. "Tightrope" is the official first single. It is featuring Mr. Sir Luscious Left Foot himself, Big Boi. It is an upbeat single with the wonderful vocals we have some to expect from Ms. Monae. The other track "Cold War" is still upbeat however, if you scratch beyond the surface you see the lyrics are deep. I didn't post these for free download because we need to support good music. Here is the website to download it.

Wow iTunes has really been on it the last two weeks. First Nneka's "The Uncomfortable Truth" was offered last week, now this week London soul artist V. V. Brown is in the spotlight. I have known about her for some time because a blog I visit often (shoutout to TIRM), featured her some months ago and I fell in love with her cd "Traveling Like the Light". Right now I feel like so much American soul/r&b music has become generic and overly sexed. I now get my fill for soul from a lot of UK artist. If you share that sentiment, V. V. Brown may have something to offer you. At any rate be sure to hop over to iTunes and download her single "Shark In the Water" for FREE here. And you if you dig it go ahead and cop her cd for only $5.99 on iTunes!!! (Skip Mickey D's today and have some great music. lol)
