- "Body": I was sad to see The Internet was not going to release a new album this year but was thrilled to find out Syd was releasing a solo project. Syd has the most seductive voice in R&B (arguably music) and hearing her take on a different sound for this project intrigues me. After hearing her second single "Body", I am sold on this album being amazing; this song sounds incredible. Fin drops February 3rd.
- "Run Up": Major Lazer might just have another hit on his hands. Taking to the popular island sound for his next single, he gets PND and Nicki Minaj to join forces on "Run Up". Now while we all yearn for another Nicki and Drizzy collab, this joint is good enough to hold us over for awile.
- "You": At last, we get our first glimpse of Keyshia Cole on her new label Epic Records. She teams up with Remy and French on a new joint which is the type of joint we LOVE and yearn from Keyshia. Glad to see she is back.
- "I Think She Like Me": When I first saw the title of this new joint with Ross, I just knew it was going to sample Dem Franchise Boyz. Sadly, I was mistaken. However, I think his new single is soulful and is the type of track we want to hear from Ross as he prepares a new album, Rather You Than Me.
- "I'm Better": Missy does this over and over. She drops a new song and video and then disappears again. This time she is better so hopefully that will result in a new album....finally. The video for her new single is great like all Missy videos and will leave you wanting more.
- "Fallen": Another album we are waiting on is from Ms. Streeter. We have gotten five singles from the album so far and it is starting to feel like we will get her whole album as singles before its actually released. "Fallen" is the lastest release and it comes at perfect time because it samples New Edition's "If It Isn't love" and all the rage right now is about the New Edition Story.
- "Tranquillo": After retirement talks and label disputes, Drogas Light is finally on the way. Lupe has released several tracks off the album so far and now drops one of the most anticipated tracks off the album in "Tranquillo" with Ross and Krit.
- "Blessings": Very interesting collab but also very dope at the same time. Lecrae and Ty sound great on the Mike Will production.
- "B.E.D. Pt. 2": Jacquees should be a star by now. He is just as talented as the Bryson Tillers and Tory Lanez of the world and arguably has a better voice. He just released a new mixtape with a remix to one of my favorite songs from his previous one. Hopefully Cash Money can get their ish together and we can get a debut album from Jacquees this year.
- "Can You Stand The Rain": If you are anything like me, this song and many other New Edition tracks are stuck in your head after watching the amazing movie by BET.
We were off last week but to close the month out we are back with 10 more songs you need to hear. Check out new singles from Nicki Minaj, PartyNextDoor, Keyshia Cole, Rick Ross and more. Oh and shoutout to Ty Dolla $ign because he is featured on majority of these songs.
