"Brand New Flava In Your Ear"

A jam-packed new music post today! Let's go!

1) Q-tip - ManWomenBoogie: Q's back with his third single! After "Getting Up" and "Move," I did not think he could release another great single, but he did. This is why he is on the top of my list as one of my favorite rappers of all time. The song has a great groove, catchy chorus and socially conscious lyrics; it is a perfect combination!



2) Chrisette Michelle- Epiphany: The "Lady Day" of our generation (besides Jill Scott, of course) is back and still sounding beautiful! I love her new hairdo in the video and the song is empowering and emotional without being over the top. I love it!

3) Ciara w/ Justin Timberlake- Love, Sex and Magic: This is the first of the next three songs that I am undecided about. The beat is hot, but I could care less about Ciara singing, except for the chorus part. Justin is alright, but he does not really enhance the song. I guess it is for the club, nothing special!



4) J' Davey- Slooow: The singer kind of scares me in the video. She seems creepy. Her voice is alright, but the song is like bubble-gum, poppish RnB. After a while, I am either tired of listening to it or do not know whether I like it or not. Again, not that special; only listen once in while.



5) Green Tea- Crazy Feeling: This song is the best out of the three that I am on the fence. It is definitely soulful and the chorus and the bridge are great, but the verses are irritating. She repeats the last word of every lyric and sound like she is rushing in the verses and I find it to be completely unneccessary. Listening to it makes me want to forward to the chorus each time! So, just listen to the chorus and bridge.



6) David Cook- Come Back to Me: When David Cooke release "Light On," I thought that it was the wrong song to be his first single. I couldn't stand the song! Now, he has released "Come Back to Me," which I thought should have been his first single. It sounds way better than the first crap he released.



(the video here is messed up, so watch on youtube)

7) Pink- Don't Leave Me: Pink is hilarious! Her video reminds me of the movie Misery with James Caan. I really do think Pink is nuts, but in a good way! As usual, her song and her voice are beautiful!

lol. i dont know why, even though i didn't like "light on" i like "come back to me" even less. whoever is picking his singles needs to be slapped. "heroes" is the most commercial song on his album and not to mention the BEST song on his album. that should have been the single. just listen to its potential.
