New Music 3/4/14 Top Picks


Happy Tuesday all,

For this fat Tuesday I decided to lavish in some good tunes as opposed to indulging in some Paczki.  With that being said here is a list of today’s new release that most excites me.

I’m “Happy” to start the list off with #1 Pharrell Williams – Girl


If this album is anything like it’s lead single from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, then this album is sure to please. I’m must say I am still a bit upset about Happy not winning the Academy Award for Best Original song, however this is such an exciting week for Mr. Williams.

1)Marilyn Monroe

2)Brand New (Duet w/ Justin Timberlake)



5)Happy (From Des Me 2)

6)Come Get It Bae

7)Gust of Wind

8)Lost Queen

9)Know Who You Are (Duet w/ Alicia Keys)

10)It Girl


#2 on the list is a bit unconventional for me, considering I don’t listen to much rap music, however I have heard plenty of buzz surrounding  Rick Ross new album Mastermind.

1. ‘Intro’
2. ‘Rich Is Gangsta’
3. ‘Drug Dealers Dream’
4. ‘Shots Fired’
5. ‘Nobody’
6. ‘The Devil Is a Lie’ feat. Jay Z
7. ‘Mafia Music III’ feat. Sizzla & Mavado
8. ‘War Ready’ feat. Jeezy
9. ‘What a Shame’
10. ‘Supreme’
11. ‘Blk & Wht’
12. ‘Dope Bitch (Skit)’
13. ‘In Vein’ feat. The Weeknd
14. ‘Sanctified’ feat. Kanye West & Big Sean
15. ‘Walkin On Air’ feat. Meek Mill16. ‘Thug Cry’ feat. Lil Wayne


17. ‘Blessing in Disguise’ feat. Scarface & Z-Ro
18. ‘Paradise Lost’
19. ‘YouKnowIGotIt’ (Reprise)


#3 is Glee’s Lea Michele debut album Louder. This maybe more my speed due to the fact that we both have roots in musical theater. I have heard that critics have given this project a less than impressive reception. Is this due to the coattail in marketing tactic Michele’s team offered after her boyfriends Cory Monteith untimely death back in July 2013?

1. Cannonball
2. On My Way
3. Burn With You
4. Battlefield
5. You’re Mine
6. Thousand Needles
7. Louder
8. Cue The Rain
9. Don’t Let Go
10. Empty Handed
11. If You Say So


Lastly #4 on the list is Donnie McClurkin Duets album. Although wish he would have included some songs from more of my personal favorite gospel artists, one can truly appreciate the full album preview here:

1. We Are Victorious featuring Tye Tribbett
2. I Am Amazed featuring Preashea Hilliard, Erica Campbell
3. I’m Still Here featuring Tina Campbell
4. Anytime featuring John P. Kee
5. Write My Name featuring Dorinda Clark Cole
6. My Past featuring Tramaine Hawkins
7. Let It Go featuring Dorinda Clark Cole
8. Encouraged featuring Justin Savage
9. Come As You Are featuring Israel Houghton, Marvin Sapp
10. All About The Love

Kelly Rowland Barely Vibe

 Kelly bares it all on the newest cover of Vibe magazine out next month. Although she looks very pretty it’s something strange and tight happening with her face, and I’m not really liking how Kelly doesn’t do sexy well. For some reason she seems as if she would have been more comfortable in a shirt, which is oxymoronic for a nude spread.

What do you think?
