Plan B has to be admired not just for stepping out of his core genre; but for making it a successful move and for making the visual promos for his songs more than just another music video.

Brand new music from Devlin, "Brainwashed" is the first official single from his long awaited debut album, Bud Sweat & Beers. Having been the artists the wrote songs such as "London City" and "Community Outcast", I expected more from Devlin for his first single. Nevertheless, Devlin is one of grime's best lyricist and I look forward to hearing the next offerings from Bud Sweat & Beers. Props to MistaJam who gave the song its first play on his show.

Kanye West feat. Dwele – Power

Z100's Jingle Ball 2008 - Show

WOW. Brand new Kanye! Here's the brand new song from Kanye West featuring Dwele titled "Power". Simply put the song is incredible. The beat is similar to Game's "Crack music", but that's probably because Kanye produced both tracks  had a hand in the production for both tracks. This new Kanye album is gonna be crazy.

Correction: "Power" was produced by S1 and co-produced by Kanye West.

Kid Cudi Ft Chip Tha Ripper & Christian Bale - All Talk

Tinashé - Zambezi (Video)

Here's the brand new video for Tinashe's new single "Zambezi". I first heard of Tinashe earlier this year and was blown away by his music.

"Zambezi" will be released as part of the Zambezi EP and will be available to download on 27th June.

Is it me or does it say "Rice and Peas" towards the end of the song?..

Tinchy Stryder - Gangsta? (Official Video)

Here's the brand new video for Tinchy Stryder's new single "Gangsta". This is the first single from his new album, which is rumoured to be called Flashing Lights. "Gangsta" features a Tinchy that is closer to the Tinchy that we knew before pop success and Number 1's. Dubbed as a street single, this is for those that preferred "Tings In Boots" to "Take Me Back". "Gangsta" is available to download from iTunes, Play.com and Amazon.co.uk today.

Christina Aguilera feat. M.I.A. – Elastic Love

WOW. Here's a collaboration that I didn't see coming! Christina Aguilera and M.I.A. have collaborated on a track called "Elastic Love" for Aguilera's album, Bionic. Ever since her "Dirrty" days, Xtina has been keen on collaborations and even though some sounded questionable on paper (cough DJ Premier cough), they often worked. For example, Xtina's collaboration with Redman and Rockwilder gained her a UK number 1 and a grammy nomination. It sounds more like a song by M.I.A.featuring Christina Aguilera rather than it being Christina featuring M.I.A, which isn't bad, just means its on the wrong album.

Christina Aguilera's new album, Bionic, is released on June 4th and is available to pre-order from iTunes and Amazon.co.uk today.

Donae'o - I'm Fly (Radio Rip)

Here's the brand new BANGER from Mr. "Party Hard", Donae'o called "I'm Fly". Simply put: NOBODY makes UK Funky like Doane'o does. This track is HARD. "I'm Fly" is the first single from Donae'o's self titled new album, Donae'o and will be released on July 19th.  Shouts to MistaJam who gave "I'm Fly" its premier on his show.

UPDATE: Watch the video to Donaeo's new single "I'm Fly" by clicking HERE.

DJ C & Lil Dave - Radio Signal Volume 07 (Mixtape)

Here's something for the lovers of UK Funky, Radio Signal Volume 07, a brand new mixtape by DJ C & Lil' Dave.

Rick Ross – The Albert Anastasia EP

Brand new mixtape from Rick Ross, The Albert Anastasia EP. Featured artists include Diddy, Styles P, Yo Gotti, Trey Songz, John Legend, Ne-Yo and Kool G Rap. Using EP in the title may make it sound good but 13 songs on an EP? Seriously? Does Officer Ricky even know what EP means?

FREE download link and track list below. Shouts to OnSMASH..

Bless Beats feat. Wiley, Plug One & Remi Nicole- Let It Go (Video)


Brand new video for Bless Beats' new single "Let It Go", featuring Wiley, Plug One (of De La Soul) and Remi Nicole. Bless Beats is the producer behind Wiley's "Wearing My Rolex", "Where's My Brother" and Maxsta's "Way Forward". Just like on those hits, Bless Beats has done a stella job with the production. Shame that Wiley had to let the project down by not turning up to yet another video (see the videos for "Never Be Your Woman", "Rollin" &  "Wearing My Rolex").

Drake feat. Jay-Z – Light Up (Tags)

Brand new music from Drake, "Light Up" featuring Jay-Z, produced by Noah “40″ Shebib and Tone Mason. This seems to be the track that people were waiting on and it's finally here. I was surprised to hear that the song uses two 16's rather than the usual three verse radio friendly strong structure. Since a Jay-Z feature is sure to guarantee an artist a certain degree of success and airplay, but the song works. "Light Up" is taken from Drake's debut album, Thank Me Later, which is released on June 14th in the UK. I hope that there aren't anymore leaks from the album before it's released, otherwise I will have heard the whole thing by the time we reach the release date at this rate!

Big Boi - Shutterbug (Video)


Brand new video for Big Boi's massive new single "Shutterbug", directed by Chris Robinson. Another video featuring Keri Hilson? Yes please! My brother put me on to this song and he'll probably be pretty happy to see that there's a video for it now. Good to see the Dungeon Family back together also. "Shutterbug" is taken from Big Boi's forthcoming album, Sir Lucious Left Foot : The Son Of Chico Dusty, which is released later this year. That HAS to be one of the coolest album names ever.

Major Lazer & La Roux - LAZERPROOF (Mixtape)

WOW. Here's the long awaited LAZERPROOF; brand new music from La Roux who has joined forces with DJs Diplo and Switch (AKA Major Lazer) to bring us LAZERPROOF. This is a mashup project comprising of La Roux's music blended with various genres including Hip Hop, Dubstep, Dancehall Drum & Bass and Dance. This has made La Roux's music more enjoyable, I enjoyed her "In For The Kill" song, but Major Lazer's remixes on this mixtape just make her songs sound so much better. The song above, "In 4 The Kill Pon De Skream," is an example of what you can find on the mixtape.

Should you need a bit more convincing have a listen to what they did with Gucci Mane's "Lemonade":


Featured artists include Drake, Gucci Mane, Gyptian & Rusko. FREE Download link below..

Drake feat Alicia Keys - Fireworks (CDQ)

Brand new music from Drake, "Fireworks", featuring Alicia Keys. This will be the first track on Drake's début album, Thank Me Later and it seems like half of the album has leaked already. Which is a shame because not only is it the most anticipated album of the year Drizzy has actually taken the time to write and craft some good songs for the album (based on what I've heard so far).

Side Note: Funny how Kelis also has a song by the same name "Fireworks" and they both use a similar metaphor for fireworks.

Madvillain - Papermill

WOW. Brand new music from Madvillain (Madlib and DOOM). "Papermill" is the first release from Madvillain's new album, Madvillainy 2, the follow up to their classic Madvillainy. DOOM and Madlib began recording the album in 2009 and it is still a work in progress but I hope it will be released this year.


FREE Download: Madvillain - Papermill

Video: Trey Songz – Yo Side of The Bed (Starring Keri Hilson)


Brand new video for Trey Songz's new single "Yo Side of The Bed", directed by Yolande Geralds. I have to thank Yolande for doing a terrific job with the video and for casting Keri Hilson as lead lady, because she's stunning. "Yo Side of The Bed" is taken from Trey Songz's latest album, Ready and is available to download from iTunes and Amazon.co.uk.

Estelle feat. Nas - Fall In Love

Brand new music from Estelle; "Fall In Love" featuring Nas. I don't know what is going on with this song as there are now three different versions of "Fall In Love," one with just Estelle, one with Estelle alongside Nas and another with Estelle alongside John Legend. Anyways, "Fall In Love" is Estelle's new single and is taken from her third album All of Me, which will be released later this year. It is almost the opposite of her previous single "Freak" in every way and is reminiscent of her biggest hit to date"American Boy".

DJ Logan Sama presents - Keepin it Todd Edwards (Mixtape)

Here's a brand new mix of all the best Todd Edwards tracks by DJ Logan Sama. It didn't come with a cover so I've knocked something up for your visual pleasure.
"So when I first started buying records to listen to at home on my Dad's single hi-fi turntable back in 1999 there was one producer who's records I used to HUNT DOWN. And I mean hunt. Second hand shops, shady ebay scam artist sellers, allsorts. This man was Todd Edwards. So many amazing memories listening to his music when I was younger, and a huge number of Grime artists in their mid to late twenties will tell you the same!

So on the first week of sunshine I put together this full on Todd Edwards mix. All vinyl and a pair of Technics 1210s, with authentic vinyl crackle and the occasional quiet press record. I even left in a needle jump when I originally uploaded it, but my OCD kicked in and I had to edit that shit out! But still, the vinyl crackle remains there so you can get that real old school vibe! I had almost forgotten how hard it was to keep two Todd Edwards records in time once you bring the mix in. DJs will know about those drum kits blending into one disorientating blur!"

Ludacris - Sex Room feat. Trey Songz (Video)


Brand new video from Ludacris for his new single "Sex Room", featuring Trey Songz and directed by Chris Robinson. "Sex Room" is taken from Luda's latest album, Battle of The Sexes, which is underrated in my opninion. I wonder what the album could have been if, as planned, it stayed as a collaboration between Ludacris and Shawna. Anyways, "Sex Room" is available to download today from iTunes, Play.com and Amazon.co.uk.

Rihanna - Rockstar 101 feat. Slash (Video)

"Rockstar 101" is taken from Rihanna's latest album, Rated R and is available to download now from iTunes, Play.com & Amazon mp3 store.

"I want a Coca-Cola bottle shape, I wanna Coca-Cola bottle shape"...

Rick Ross - Slow Down(Ha Ha) Freestyle (Video)


Brand new video for Rick Ross's freestyle over Fat Joe's latest banger "Slow Down(Ha Ha)", directed by SpliffTV. Of course if it's to do with Rick Ross then DJ Khaled had to be involved (even if it's just a cameo in the video). I think 'The Bawse' has a tight flow but I just cant take him seriously not after the Officer Ricky scandal.

Wiley - Electric Boogaloo (Find A Way) feat Jodie Connor & J2K (Video)


Brand new video for Wiley's new single "Electric Boogalo," directed by Charles Henrie Belleville. "Electric Boogalo" features fellow A-List member J2K and Jodie Connor, who you probably heard on Roll Deep's massive #1 "Good Times".

Briggzy - Home Feat. Samir Harmim (Video)


Brand new video for Briggzy's new single "Home" featuring Samir Harmim, directed by Dirty City Media and produced by Rick Charles. "Home" is a dedication to Briggzy's home city of Salford, think "Empire State of Mind" / "California Love" but more subtle. "Home" is taken from Briggzy's debut album Gingerfication which will be released later this year. Enjoy!

Drake feat. Young Jeezy - Unforgettable (CDQ)


This is the CD quality version of Drake's next single "Unforgettable" featuring Young Jeezy, Produced by Noah “40″ Shebib. "Unforgettable" will appear on Drake's début album, Thank Me Later, which is released on June 14th. From what I have heard from the album ("Miss Me", "Find Your Love" & "Over") it's gonna be a monster. In case you couldn't tell, the song samples Aaliyah's "At Your Best." Shouts to DJ Self.

Fat Joe feat. Trey Songz - If It Ain’t About Money

"If It Ain’t About Money" is the new single from Fat Joe featuring Trey Songz, produced by Cool & Dre. "If It Ain’t About Money" is taken from Joe's forthcoming album, The Darkside which also features "Ha Ha (Slow Down)".  Jeezy joined Joe on the first single and Trey Songz joined Joe on the second single, just hope that the album isn't filled with features. The Darkside is released on June 28th.

Drake – 9AM in Dallas Freestyle (Prod. by Boi-1da)


Brand new freestyle from Drake, produced by Boi-1da. Drake shows some versatility by stepping out of the song format his songs normally use and opting for a 'freestyle' format. Drake seems to allude to this towards the end of the freestyle asking "Is this what y'all want?". Mr. Do Right And Kill Everything stays true to his name as this is laden with notable quotables and a beat to match. Enjoy.

The video serves as a reminder as to how far this nineteen year old has come in a few short years, guess he wasnt lying when he said that he's in a league of his own. "Superstar" is available to download now on iTunes, Amazon.co.uk and Play.com.

Video: Asher Roth - Muddy Swim Trunks NSFW


Brand new video for Asher Roth's new single "Muddy Swim Trunks", produced by Madlib and directed by BBGUN. I like the way that the video started off with the cover for Asher's debut album Asleep in The Bread Aisle and ends with the cover for his mixtape Seared Foie Gras with Quince and Cranberry. If you didn't notice that then you definitely noticed that the video was doe in one shot, yes one take. A heavy video, for a dope track taken from an equally good free mixtape (which you can download here). Enjoy.

"Commander" is the brand new single by Kelly Rowland, produced by David Guetta and written by Rico Love. "Commander" is taken from Kelly's third solo album, which is not yet titled.
