♫ Jamie Foxx feat. T-Pain – Blame It (full) – listen
Jamie Foxx’s album (which drops next week), has leaked in its entirety and it seems as though fans are digging this new song, “Blame It,” featuring none other than T-Pain. Admittedly, I’m not really impressed. Jamie Foxx sounds amazing without the auto-tune, so I’m a little disappointed that he jumped on that band wagon and dumbed his voice down for this. It’s times on this song when I can’t even tell the different between his voice and T-Pain’s.
♫ Brandy – Drum Life (full) – listen
The final version of Brandy’s “Drum Life” leaked and it sounds absolutely beautiful. I can’t understand why Brandy left all these Timbaland tracks off the album. Although it doesn’t really fit in with the overall theme of Human, the song just feels so good to me. From the vocal arrangement, to the pulse of the song, to the beat, it’s just an amazing record to me. Since it leaked, I haven’t stopped playing it. Great job, Brandy and Tim. I can see why she’d want him to help executive produce the next album.
♫ J. Holiday feat. Rick Ross – Wrong Lover (full) – REMOVED
J. Holiday is working on a new album that’s set to drop at the top of next year. I’m glad, because J. Holiday’s voice is like butter. Even though I wasn’t completely impressed by the bulk of the material on his first album, Back of My ‘Lac, I was able to appreciate J.’s voice. I think it just turns out better if he works with other writers. “Wrong Lover” is a pretty sexy track. I like the production on this song, this is the kind of material that I want to hear from Mr. Holiday on his new album.
♫ One Chance – Watch Me Back (full) – listen
Rumor has it that One Chance is no longer under Usher’s label imprint and the have a release date for next March. I’m excited for them, but they need to hit the studio again because their tracks leak left and right. With all the material they have on the internet, One Chance could have put out two albums by now. Although I think the boys are pretty talented, “Watch Me Back” isn’t some of their best material. But I’m still looking out for these guys, because I think they could make it.
