You already know the math: Phonte + Nicolay = The Foreign Exchange = Dope Music Every Time! And this time out is no exception. If you have checked out their latest project, you already know. If not, you already know you are in for a treat… when you play “Hide & Seek” (compilation LP)… in particular, that “Shelter” single. Nice!

R&B: Victor Oladipo – “Song For You”

Whaaaat? Okay, basketball players have been trying to get into the rap game for decades. And at least recently, a couple have put out some decent off-court, on-mic work. But a b-baller doing R&B? Nah, you have not heard that… yet. But Victor Oladipo (V.O.), how are you coming out of the gate singing a Donny Hathaway jam maaaaan. You trying to be a R&Baller all o’ sudden? Ha!

(Not bad actually. Click and listen for yourself.)

Smooth and mellow melancholy musings about what dude lost… If there is any truth to some dude losing Sky Morales to a “New One”… maaan, you’re an idiot.

Jorja Smith – “On My Mind” (Prod. By Preditah) [Video]

Jorja Smith & Preditah with some UK club jamming dance tunes. Jorja’s gotta tell you about what’s “On My Mind” (um… her mind). Letting it ooze out over the Preditah-produced groove, with soul, and some bop. Nice stuff.

But let her friends tell it: It’s a bit too singy. *Sigh* Haters. Baahahaaa!

World Music/R&B: Switt – “Aléa Mba” (Video)

Oh, say “Aléa Mba” like ‘Ollie-Um-Bye-Yay.’ So much flavor put down by Switt in his official video for the single off his “Pieces Of Me” project (out now).

“Aléa Mba” depicts a young man who happily ends up proposing to his longtime girlfriend. On this one, Switt uses his soulful voice to tackle the issue of commitment in our modern day relationships.

(Oh, and a quick Google of the phrase “Alea Mba” revealed a translation: “Hold me down.” Now, click play again.)
