Ludacris - In My Life Ft. John Legend

Ludacris - In My Life Ft. John Legend

Ludacris takes a moment to put it all in perspective with In My Life, the second single off of his upcoming EP Burning Bridges. In this track, Luda gets a chance to reflect on life over a smooth saxophone laden beat accompanied by the soulful stylings of John Legend. With the right dosage of word play, introspection and sense of humor, it’s clear that Ludacris has still got it. - Carmine Colangelo

Nicki Minaj - Big Daddy Ft. Meek Mill

Nicki Minaj - Big Daddy Ft. Meek Mill

With The Pinkprint scheduled to release on Monday, Nicki Minaj looks ready to pull out the big guns for her third studio album, or in this case, the “big daddy”. The track sports a hostile beat, which caters well to the aggressive flows of both Nicki and Meek Mill. Complementary styles and a few sharp lines culminate into a positive chemistry for the two on Big Daddy, something we might see again on The Pinkprint as Meek Mill is slated for another feature on the album. - Carmine Colangelo

K Michelle- Love Em All Ft. Young Jeezy

K Michelle- Love Em All Ft. Young Jeezy

Put all of her ratchet reality show fits to the side and K Michelle is one hell of an R&B artist. So much so, the soul singer got trapstar Young Jeezy to get in his feelings over the remix...sort've. While Love Em All won't see the mainstream success that V.S.O.P did, it's definitely a worthy tune.

J Cole- A Tale Of 2 Cities

J Cole- A Tale Of 2 Cities

J Cole's third album Forest Hills Drive was presented to the public abruptly, but there was nothing rushed about the actual product. One of the fan favorites amongst the LP will easily be A Tale Of 2 Cities. Living vicariously through Cole's story telling is great enough of a feeling that you just might run up on someone the next time you pull up at a stop sign.

Omarion-You Like It

Omarion-You Like It

Omarion's latest album Sex Playlist is filled with melodic gyms, and the sensual album cut You Like It is just one of the many standouts. As far as R&B singers go, Omarion is still top tier when it comes to style. Here we get to see O's vocal range, as he flows in and out of the instrumentals pocket.

B.O.B-Not For Long Ft. Trey Songz

B.O.B-Not For Long Ft. Trey Songz

B.O.B conquered the formula for radio success in his first album cycle, and after re-proving himself to his hip hop core he's back at the Billboard Chart's neck. This sing along record isn't going to lyrically blow anyone away, but should play well into 2015 with a catchy hook by R&B star Trey Songz carrying the record.
