Damn that album cover art is... a work of art! "Talk A Good Game" (LP) is due out June 4, 2013. But Kelly Rowland is dropping another eye-opening new single right now. This is Kelly stepping further out of the Destiny's Child shadow. Airing out some "Dirty Laundry." The song was written by R&B singer & songwriter The-Dream but the message in the music conveys Kelly Rowland's true feelings about Beyonce & also how she dealt with an abusive relationship. Could have done without all the curses in the song but the music & honesty is appreciated. Wow. You thought you knew, but... just listen.
Atlanta's R&B artist Bobby V takes it 'Back To Love' with this impressive new single off of his upcoming "Peach Moon" EP due in the coming months. This is the type of R&B that's missing these days so it's actually refreshing hearing artists not overly compromise what real R&B should be & feel like. In fact that's what's been missing from most of the R&B songs released these days - The "LOVE" element. Let's get 'Back To Love' indeed....
Atlanta based R&B singer & songwriter 'The-Dream" drops some great looking visuals for the title track to his upcoming album "IV Play" directed by Toronto's Little "X". The first time I heard this new joint from Mr. Terius Nash I felt a slight Jodeci influence in the music & to a minor degree the video also gives me that feel of their 90s based clips as well. Hot women (the badonk on one of them is amazing), great visual shots, & good music make for a very interesting clip. Be on the lookout for The-Dream's upcoming album "IV Play" coming May 28th.
I've become a fan of DJ & producer Eric Lau's work over the past several years after initially discovering his music. Whenever he drops something new I know without fail I can ALWAYS expect quality work. This new joint featuring the talented UK based soul singer Tawiah called "Where To Go Now" is the second single from his upcoming project "One Of Many" due June 17th. His equally as hot first single "Everytime" we had posted just a few weeks back in case you missed it. London-based singer Tawiah has been releasing some great music on her own that we've posted previously so discovering this new collaboration with Eric Lau was a no-brainer that the end result would be nothing short of special. I'm sure this is just "One Of Many" of the great musical pieces Tawiah & Eric Lau have coming our way. For now go ahead get cop the FREE download of the new single below.
Another mix of music from the Love Ultra Radio Show with DJ/Host Jah Prince including new music from Vado, Raheem DeVaughn, Bilal, K'La featuring Nas, Chrisettle Michele featuring Wale and Fantasia. Another surprise is "I Do" Olivia featuring French Montana.
Man! I better not hear Miguel ever complain about his job. Taking the luscious Mariah Carey for a spin on his bike; after having recorded a hit with her... all in a day's work. Wow. Their video is obviously "Beautiful" and so is the song (out now on iTunes; album coming this summer). Check out visuals above, and cop the audio below.
Byron Utley sings a smooth and soulful tune entitled "If You Don't Love Me" on his first r&b single. The song is one of the theme songs to the scintillating romance novel "Soul Baby", by author, writer and producer Joseph H. James, Jr. The sultry single is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, E-Music, Verve, Rhasody and Myspace Music.
SHAMEIA LACRAWF "SHOP THIS EP"
Dawn Richard has her sophomore effort "Blackheart" on the way. To hold her hearts (fans) over though, she drops this single "Army" (produced by Kev The Writer).
A short while ago, we posted cool audio for "Rio" by Theophilus London featuring The Menahan Street Band. Now, there's an enjoyable video for the silky soulful single. Click and watch to experience "Rio" (the music video).
Remember when Heavy D & the Boyz sampled Jean Knight's "Mr. Big Stuff" (for their own song with that title)? Well, here's a new John Legend joint - "Who Do We Think We Are" (featuring Rick Ross) - that went back to that well. Nice. The single is is out on iTunes now. The full-length, "Love in the Future," is due out June 25, 2013. Check out what John has to say about it:
'The song is about living life to the fullest, About not being afraid to be a risk-taker and to pursue your dreams. But it's also about enjoying and luxuriating in your pursuits. So in some ways we made a fantasy video that shows some reveling... a little sex. It's a gorgeous video that I think people will like.'

JOHN LEGEND - WHO DO WE THINK WE ARE
Recently I was speaking with a friend about great contemporary soul artists & Toronto singer Glenn Lewis's name had come up. His now classic "Don't You Forget It" & "Simple Things" , & "Good One" are just a few of my favorites. It got me to wondering where the brotha was with the new music lately. Seems like a higher power may have overheard our conversation as some new music from the T.Dot singer just dropped. Glenn Lewis new lead single "Can't Say Love" is from of his upcoming album "Moment of Truth" (due out August 20, 2013). Lewis' track orchestrated by CertiFYD Production Group. Good heartfelt, soulful offering to get the fans back right...
