Rihanna is that "Fun Girl" you used to kick it with. You may or may not marry her but she's always fun. That type of vibe

Some of these new pop songs are really just reggae records without the patois. Rihanna "Work… Justin Bieber – "I'm Sorry", etc etc

Umm, Mila J. Young lady, whatchu know ’bout this grown folk music. You’re just gonna I. Rich to get the Tony Toni Tone “Me & You” sample worked on in there on yours… over your syrupy sexy singing. Sounds good though. Kind of hard to resist.
So we won’t. Ha!
(But we will do a l’il some’n for the old-schoolers after the jump.)
R&B: MILA J – ME & YOU
That hella hard straight to the point R&B for you. Don’t know how to set it? Put this “Kissing On Your Neck” on and you two (or three, heh) can ‘get some ideas’ from the music. Visual aids for this lovin’ lesson, too. Enjoy, reeeally enjoy, the evening!
(Off the “Slow Ain’t Dead” EP linked below.)
I’ve had enough of running and running and running…
True (and likely even casual) Usher Raymond fans would probably agree that his talent is complemented by a care for humanity. From mentoring to speaking on the plight of his people, we’ve seen Usher in there doing what he could. Here he is now, along with Nas & Bibi Bourelly, letting his art (“Chains”) speak on social injustice today. As Nina Simone said, “It’s an artist’s duty to reflect the times in which we live.”
Lalah Hathaway covers her dad’s 1971 classic and brings in Snoop Dogg, Robert Glasper & Terrace Martin for the ride and vibe. Nice. Visuals for “Ghetto Boy” above. Link to the iTunes for this single below.
James Corden and music icon Stevie Wonder carpooling through Los Angeles, singing to some Stevie tunes booming from the system, nothing too special. WHAT? This is awesome! And James said he ought to start a group called The Wondercats. Baaahahaaa!
But beyond the funny…watch what happens when James asks Stevie to call and sing to his wife. Dude. Who doesn’t love Stevie Wonder?
Ghostface Killah said this Knxledge beat sounds like ‘Batman just got poisoned by his old lady’… hahaahahaaa! What??? Anyway, this Omarion jawn he’s on – “I Aint Even Done” – though. Pretty dope. Think more chant than rhythmic poetry; more ethereal than literal or literary. Then your head will be in the right space.
Whew! Cot dam if that isn’t some mighty fine cover art. Dunno if your friends will be able to honor that request if your ex is looking like that, Rico. Okay, so check out the latest Rico Love work of [musical] art entitled “Please” (featuring Pusha T). Stream and link below. All for FREE. Thank us later.

Jakarta Records already dropped “Summer In Jakarta” and “Winter In Jakarta” in this its 10th year as a label. How about another seasonal compilation album? “Autumn In Jakarta” is 15 unreleased tracks from Jakarta artists and others they consider ‘friends of the label’ or just plain ol’ dope!
Stephen Colbert welcomes CeeLo Green, as he performs his “Working Class Heroes, Work” single with ‘The Late Show’ musicians – Louisiana music maker Jon Batiste and Stay Human.
The heat! Erykah and he ex, Andre 3K, can still bring it on a track. Exhibit A: “Hello” is embedded below. Tried to find an active link to the “But You Caint Use My Phone” mixtape on which this appears; but it has been snatched from EVERYWHERE… including iTunes for some reason. Keep an eye/ear open for it though. Worth it.
(Another ex, the “Exhibit C” emcee Jay Electronica, also features on the mixtape. Seems like they all remain cool. Good.)

We regret to inform all haters that Miguel is still hard at work; still falling through sets collecting checks, handshakes, hugs and kisses from lovelies (maybe even your misses). Why not just hop on the bandwagon and ride with the “Wildheart” on yet another jam from the LP? This visual release for “waves” would be a perfect opportunity.
