R&B Fridays: Episode 97


Lots of slow jams and collaborations in this week’s episode, some of which are certainly noteworthy not only for their lineup, but also as they’re potentially quite prominent singles from upcoming albums.

Recap from this week’s postings: a new Jagged Edge mixtape, Ryan Leslie’s latest video/single, visuals for J*Davey’s fantastic Raincheck, and finally a very unexpected UK-US collab between David Banner, Estelle and Daley.

R&B Fridays: Episode 89


Genuine reason on the delay this week: I wasn’t happy with the amount of good quality material as of yesterday afternoon, but the R&B/pop world has delivered in the last 24 hours or so to make sure that situation has improved.

Not too much to recap on from the past week, with only the three related items: UK starlet Jodie Connor released her newest single, fellow homegrown upcomer Jaya released a new video featuring two prominent MCs, and Mike Posner let loose of official visuals for his collaboration with Lil’ Wayne.

R&B Fridays: Episode 86


All good things come to an end, and my recent run of posting these on time has been broken. The football fans out there will also note that another streak was broken today, but we are NOT getting into that.

A quick round-up from the week gone by: UK upcomer Talay Riley grabs Wretch 32 for a remix of his single, Timbaland’s latest weekly instalment, Trey Songz’s take on Chris Brown’s latest single, and finally a medley of incredible Michael Jackson covers from the fantastic Patrick Stump.

Lots of big names in this week’s episode, and many that will certainly catch your mainstream eyes. Click below for a sweet-smelling blast of R&B to your sweaty, sweaty face.

Clinton Sparks-Favorite DJ ft. Jim Jones, Game & Bun B (DJ Green Lantern Remix)


DJ Green Lantern remixes Clinton Sparks tribute to the DJ.

You all know what Jim Jones, Game and Bun B provide; likeable rhymes over a great beat. A real nice chorus to this track too, so it has all the elements a great mainstream hip hop track should have.

One I’ll be bumping for a while.

Big Sean-Ambiguous Girl ft. Clinton Sparks & Mike Posner

Off Big Sean’s Finally Famous Vol. 3 mixtape: here’s the official video to a track that accumulated a lot of plays on my iTunes.

Not a lot to talk about with the visuals, so I’ll discuss the song instead. Mike Posner really delivers with another utterly addictive hook that you will not get out of your head. I didn’t actually realised Clinton Sparks rapped on this, was just a DJ from what I was aware, but he does a decent enough job on this.

Big Sean obviously enhances the rapping side of things on this track and he also happened to make me laugh a fair bit at the end of the video with him telling a story about the three of them on the pull.
