I have been getting the urge to blog a lot lately. I haven’t been focused on listening to new music like I used to so I felt the need to download some albums. I spent part of my day today looking to see what I have been missing out on and these are the albums that I got: Ryan Leslie’s self-titled album, In a Perfect World by Keri Hilson, Love vs. Money by The-Dream, In My Radio by Musiq Soulchild, It’s Not Me, It’s You by Lily Allen, and All I Ever Wanted by Kelly Clarkson. I’m glad I have some new tunes to listen to this week. I’ll keep you updated on which albums I love, hate, and recommend you getting.

Someone brought this to my attention a few weeks ago and I thought it was purely comical. As The-Dream releases more songs, I realize it more often. Groundbreaking thought: EVERY song The-Dream is on and/or produces, he or the artist repeats what is said during the chorus similar to an echo. Take this new track by LL Cool J…”I’m your baby, your baby, your baby, your baby…” Ok, let’s take it back to Rihanna’s song “You can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella…” Then we have J. Holiday’s “I’m a put you to bed, bed, bed…” So either homeboy has a stuttering problem (which there is nothing wrong with because I sometimes do) or he needs to work on expanding his vocabulary.
by Plies ft. Jamie Foxx & The-Dream: Plies first captured my attention during a 106 & Park interview. I expected him to say “baaaby this” and “lil mama that”, but surprisingly he spoke rather eloquently. I have never considered myself a Plies fan, but I am feeling his newest single. It’s definitely not “new” by any means, but I have been waiting for a release of this video for some time now. I’m glad Jamie is on the track, although I feel as though The-Dream should have been cut from the line-up. I’m not impressed by The-Dream (I will detail why in a following post) but Plies gets two thumbs up from me!
