New Music by Usher Raymond and Diplo who scored a major Number 1 hit last year with the infectious ‘Climax’. This track bares no similarities to the Latter which is good because in most situations many people are trying to recreate rather that be creative. With that being said i need to give it a couple more listens but i aint mad at it though. Take a listen for yourself after the jump!
After 6 years away from the music scene Justin Timberlake is back with a brand new dope single ‘Suit & Tie’ featuring Hip Hop Icon Jay-Z. Justin was silently recording his brand new 2013 album ‘The 20/20 Experience’ from june of last year and finally has decided to come back with a bang shooting straight to Number 1 on the iTunes charts around the world. Well way back in 2002 Justin began his solo career with his debut single ‘Like I Love You’ which was featured on his Triple platinum album ‘Justified’ and the single went on to become a Top 20 hit on the billboard Hot 100 and even was certified platinum also. Justin premiered the song on the MTV VMA Awards show in 2002 and up until that moment the song had not been heard so it was very risky to debut in such a fashion with a performance on the world-wide stage such as MTV. The song produced by The legendary Neptune’s and featured The Clipse who also performed alongside Justin for the debut of the single. Watch below as Justin shows he is up with the best of them such as Usher and Chris Brown with the dance sequences, live vocals and delivering a believable performance of R&B and Hip Hop which would eventually take Justin to higher heights in his career.

Ludacris released his next single days after debuting his brand new ‘Representin’ video featuring Kelly Rowland. The single ‘Rest Of My Life’ featuring the dance sounds of David Guetta is not my favorite but Usher smooths it over with some heavy vocals alongside the beat to make it listenable for me. Im just not a fan of dance music crossing over into hip hop but that just me. Take a listen after the jump!
