Timbaland-Whenever You Like ft. Bran’Nu


Some more decent material from Timbo for his #TimbalandThursday series. Whilst it’s nothing ground-breaking it is just a typical Timbaland R&B/rap hybrid of a track, that he does oh so well. This one features Bran’Nu….that’s the R&B singer Brandy’s rapping alter-ego by the way.

Last week’s Timbo Thursday that I didn’t have time to post/felt ambivalent towards:

Timbaland-808 ft. Brandy


Another week, another Timbaland Thursday. Much like Swizz Beatz ‘Monster Mondays‘, I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the quality of the tracks Timbaland’s been coming out with. These are essentially throwaway tracks, but from a production point of view, it’s arguable that the strength of these are better than what we heard on his Shock Value 2, or the beats he gave Jay-Z for Blueprint 3.

This track is no different, another very good beat for us to enjoy with Brandy providing some vocals to add to the goodness.

R&B Fridays: Episode 76


Whilst the rest of the music world seems to have taken a much-needed breather this week (album releases aside), there’s been no shortage of new and/or unreleased R&B and pop material in the 76th instalment of R&B Fridays.

The week has already seen a great new video from Tank, two new remixes from T-Pain, a captivating video for Bruno Mars’ Grenade, the UK’s own Chipmunk working with Chris Brown, another release from Trey Songz’s upcoming mixtape, Keri Hilson and Kanye West getting together for a new remix, Keyshia Cole and Nicki Minaj’s collabo video, and the unexpected release of a John Legend and Estelle EP.

Lots up there, and lots down below. Click on.

R&B Fridays: Episode 66


Full of big names this week, with contributions from Trey Songz , the new single from Akon and more. You already know what’s coming next…let’s recap on the last week:

A great new track from Gyptian, visuals from Rydaz-N-Rtist, a snippet of Chris Brown’s upcoming work, Kelly Rowland’s latest video, and finally a raft of performances from the VMAs.

I’m very proud of this episode. I’m pretty happy with almost every track, and as a result it’s reduced down to around 15 tracks. Very digestable, and hence easy for you to give most of it a shot. Click on and agree with me, all of you. Thanks.

R&B Fridays: Episode 43


FINALLY, we have a regular episode. After the triple digits of last week, we’re back down to normal levels. I’ve made an effort to throw in more new artists this week as the last few have been really mainstream, so there are some lesser known gems in this one for you to check out.

Obviously plenty of established names in there too though, so be sure to click on for a digestable instalment of R&B goodness.

R&B Fridays: Episode 41


50 tracks. I had to plough through 50 tracks this week! Expect a part 2 post in the next few days as a result.

The crazy thing is that pretty much all of the tracks are from really big name artists, which makes this episode (and the sequel) pretty stacked at 22 tracks each (5/6 of the tracks were poor, hence a 44 total!).

Lloyd, Keri, Leona, R-Les, and many more are all waiting for you after the click. There’s some real quality in here (especially from Johnta and Lloyd) and this is possibly the best episode ever, so be sure to check this one out whether you’re a new fan or a regular.

Two New Snoop Dogg Tracks

FYI, this picture was not chosen for it’s relativity to the songs but for its sheer hilarity.

Some nice features on these tracks, and I’ve been fairly pleased with some of the tracks that have leaked thus far and hopefully these will continue the trend. Snoop tends to work well with Pharrell, and his previous collab with The-Dream was likeable.
