R Kelly- Untitled

Nothing like a new Kells album to share with the kiddies over Thanksgiving weekend. This man is still doing what he does best and even lets us know on "Like I Do" - "there's only 2 things in this world that I'm the best at. Number one is music and baby girlll number two, can't nobody work ya body out like I dooo, like I dooo."

"Pregnant" is a jam, with Kelly, Tyrese, Robin Thicke and The Dream all crooning about how they want to impregnate the listener. And "Go Low," well I bet you can guess what that one's about.

Jonathan Boulet

Fresh from signing to Modular, Jonathan Boulet releases one of the best songs of the year. Like the track, the video is simple yet gripping.

Big ups to Sean for putting me onto this guy, looking forward to his album release next month.

Chauffeur is a super group comprised of Theophilus London, Sam Sparro and Mark Ronson. This track below, which is a freakin jam, is the only one I could find by them, but they did perform last week for the first time in NYC and their set included a cover of Sheila E's "The Glamorous Life." (!!)

Chauffeur- Soles Of Fire

Apparently this colab has something to do with the release of Ronson's shoe line with Gucci. Check out the kicks below, perfect for the "urban-boater."

For fans of Friendly Fires and such.

Fenech Soler - Lies

Chiddy Bang - The Swelly Express

I thought these dudes broke up, but they just released a new mixtape last week, so who knows. Either way they are back and up to their old tricks- chopping up indie rock songs into hip hop beats. (I especially enjoy the Sufjan Steven sample on All Things Go).
