Poo Bear – “Hard 2 Face Reality” feat. Justin Bieber x Jay Electronica

Hmmm… “Poo Bear Presents: Birthday Music” huh? Might not have given it a second thought, but that’s probably why artists drop singles. This “Hard 2 Face Reality” brought in Jay Electronica AND Justin Bieber?? On the same track?? Poo Bear covered the whole gamut of music out here in these streets and suburbs with that lineup, right? Undeniable Pop and Hip-Hop on a pretty cool track. Check it.

Ro James – “Take It All … RAWW” (Prod. By Ca$$ Maya)

Well, get to the point with the quickness, Ro! And let’s chop up and throw in that Marvin Gaye sample for good measure and to add even more HEAT!

(So much HEAT, we had to swap that photo Ro put up for this single on the ‘Cloud with an uber HOT sexy shot from @IconicShoots (check out more hot shots here) of every man’s dream woman @Tara.Channel.Jones … RAWW!)

RO JAMES – TAKE IT ALL … RAWW

Ashanti – “Say Less” feat. Ty Dolla $ign (Video)

Mm mm mm! Ashanti has been so sexy for so damn long. And it don’t stop. Posting this off ‘g’ for the Eye Candy appeal alone. And there’s music. But homies… LOOOOOK! Whew. Ashanti rules the top of every man’s can-get-it list!

Jhené Aiko – “Never Call Me” feat. Kurupt (Slauson Hills Edition) [Video]

Hmm… turns out that that Jhene Aiko visual for “Never Call Me” was the ‘Asian Version’… Apparently, there is a hooded out ‘Slauson Hills Version.’ And don’t even front like you can wait to see it. Click the play button and quit playing!

(Watch for cameos from Nipsey Hussle and more.)

Jhené Aiko – “Never Call Me” feat. Kurupt (Video)

Visuals for this song should be as much a “Trip” as the song itself. Well played, Aiko. Take the journey and click play.

R&B: Jeremih – “The Chocolate Box” (EP)

Got a “Chocolate Box” to surprise the valentine with. So what if we’ve sprung forward past all that. Go back, and click play for you and who you with. Won’t even matter homie. This EP gets right into some freaky business!

You’re welcome. But don’t thank us, thank Jeremih.

JEREMIH – THE CHOCOLATE BOX (EP)

Deshun – “chooselove” (Prod. By Z-Wil)

Tell me what you really do for love…

Salute Deshun. This “chooselove” work done with producer Z-Wil is worthy. Nice funky bop to the song. For grooving at the crib, or rolling out spontaneously, pick this one!

CeeLo Green – “Brick Road” (Prod. By Vinny Venditto x YNIG)

Can you smell me?

Follow the CeeLo “Brick Road”… but watch your step. CeeLo singing about cooking up dope and going on ‘trips’ (e.g. using said dope) is going to get deep.

Mélat x Jansport J – “Move Me II: The Present” (Album Stream)

Sooo… what’d you think about “Push” jawn with Melat & Jansport J doing that work (that we posted on here last month)? C’mon, we already know you liked it. Rhetorical question. Want to hear more? Like the entire album stream for FREE?

Again… rhetorical.

R&B: Mya – “You Got Me” (Prod. By MyGuyMars)

Right before I leave, I’mma give you all you need.

Wow! Got another sizzler from Mya well ahead of the warm months. Still a sexy “It’s All About Me” vibe (can’t believe it’s been 20 years since that dropped), but now we get “You Got Me.” Hmmm… if only, Mya. If only…

MYA – YOU GOT ME (PROD. BY MYGUYMARS)

Jesse Boykins III – Earth Girls (Prod. By DJ Dahi) [Video]

What the…? Is that Rosario Dawson in there?! Okay, you can go get that “Bartholomew” album (see link below) after watching this “Earth Girls” video once. But er… we might stick around and watch again… just to confirm that that was indeed the sultry Ms. Dawson. Her presence and essence goes with the vibe of the music. Soulful. Good work and salute to Jesse Boykins III and DJ Dahi!

Ne-Yo – “Good Man” (Video)

Ha! Go’on ‘head then player! The Chosen dropped them lines in this jawn!

I just wanna pick the phone up every time you call…
I wanna be chillin’ with Obama talkin’ business, see your call, and tell him…
“Hold up. I gotta take this.”
Let the world wait.

NE-YO – GOOD MAN (ITUNES)

Mereba – “Black Truck”

Okay. Respect due. Mereba checks all the relevant boxes – repping the A-T-L well, putting out the good tunes, down with the majorest of majors (i.e. Interscope) out West. Nothing left to do but check out “Black Truck” and hear what that do, too.

Phabo – “1-800-143-PHAB” (Prod. By G. Ry)

Hot… HOT… HOT! Feels like that Art Of Noise “Moments In Love” vibe from back in the day. Like getting real close and holding ’em tight in a tightly-spaced apartment. It’s still cold out, so get it in! This ought to be on some kind of ‘cuffing season’ soundtrack. Haaa!

Sy Ari Da Kid – “Read Receipts” feat. Eric Bellinger (Prod. By Natra Average)

Is it like this out there now, people? Sometimes you gotta ask if it’s worth going through all of that ‘verifying’… On the upside, that Natra Average beat is smoking!

Kendrick Lamar x SZA – “All The Stars” (Video)

Along comes a visual, just in a nick of time for “Black Panther” hitting the big screens, for Kendrick Lamar & SZA’s jawn, “All The Stars.”

Chris Brown – “State Of The Union”

So… to say that C Breezy’s take on “The State Of The Union” is different than what we heard from President Trump a couple of nights ago is… an understatement. Appropriate, because this joint is ‘understated’ (but you will feel it).

Watch This Short Film On The History And Musical Impact Of The Soulquarians (Documentary)

The Soulquarians were born at the Electric Lady Studios. Questlove and D’Angelo loving to make music with sickness in it. Common & Erykah Badu came in and got down with the sickness. The fam kept growing… and the brothers James (Poyser and Yancey) rounded out the core… but the story certainly doesn’t stop there…

In 1998, the Neo-Soul movement was near its peak when a collective of like-minded artists came together to push the wave even higher. They called themselves the Soulquarians, and before the decade ended they’d help birth some of the modern era’s greatest recordings.
– Pitchfork

Watch how ‘sick’ the crew would get. Nice!
