Chris Brown - Let’s Go (Extended Solo Version)
I’m VERY close to Chris Brown’s hometown where he did his community service. This whole his records were faked is ALL over the local news. Special reports blah blah blah. Like WHY are you dissecting it? Also, is this seriously the only breaking news? I doubt it.
It was breaking news that Rhianna was at court supporting Chris. And?
I’m guessing you know he didn’t fake it?
Chris Brown aka the king of killer hooks is back in heavy rotation on the US radio market. After his urban hit single “Don’t Judge Me” topped the urban radio chart a few ago, the singer can now be heard on two hot new singles on both pop radio and urban radio.
Afrojack’s 10th single “As Your…
Kevin “K-Mac” McCall recently dropped by the studios of Kempire Radio to discuss his own up and coming projects. During the interview the producer/artist/song-writer spoke about Chris Brown’s “top secret” new album “X”, confirming that he hasn’t been approached to produce for the project & that it may actually be a feature free album.

My Album Top 5 Of 2012
5. Brandy - Two Eleven
Yes, i did LOVE this album. Did i love every single song? of course not, there are still many things Brandy could work on, Wish Your Love Away for example is one the worst songs on there imo, the lack of creativity on that record speaks for itself. A sample isn’t everything you know. Anyways, vocally, Brandy is one of my favorites, she has a really calm tone to her voice that i could never get tired of. I’d give this album a decent 6.5.
4. Rihanna - Unapologetic
Although the final product didn’t satisfy me as much as i hoped for when i listened to the snippets, i can’t deny that this album really got to me and i feel like Rihanna definitely delivered one of her best albums. There’s no real storyline to this album which may result into confusion if you never heard the album before.
The album switches from Pop to R&B with Dubstep elements and also has a very urban feel to it at some points. i love “Stay” a lot. The Chris Brown assisted MJ inspired “Nobody’s Business” rocks too.
3. Chris Brown - Fortune
Most of you probably saw this one coming, my favorite artist Chris Brown also released an album this year and as a fan, his work will always end up being one of my favorites. This year he decided to release “Fortune”, an very standard Chris Brown type of album. By all means, this doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a bad thing. But there’s not much of an evolution being made on this record. You have the love (sex) songs, you have the ballads and you have the uptempo records. Personally i do feel like he could have traded some of the bonus tracks with the actual standard album tracks to give it a more R&B feeling. Still my most played album of the year. YOU GONNA WANNA TELL SOMEBODYYYYY
2. Bruno Mars - Unorthodox Jukebox
Could someone send an angel up to god and thank him for the gift that is Bruno Mars? Although this album just came out three weeks ago, i’ve been hooked ever since. It’s such a variety of music on there that adjusts to nearly every emotion a human has. I was so impressed by this that i forgot to use my ears when i listened to it for the first time, i was very negative because i really didn’t like Bruno’s corny ass music at first but man.. i was just being straight up delusional. There are Michael Jackson inspired songs, reggae inspired songs, there’s even a song with co-production done by Diplo. Simply put, there’s a song for everyone. “Gorilla” is my fuckin shit, such a risky record lyrically, but it works really well.
thank you god.
1. Miguel - Kaleidoscope SlayDream
Let me start of by saying i never heard of Miguel before this album. Oh sure, i saw Adorn lyrics all my TL.. but i just never gave much of a fuck because i expected another overrated piece of shit… thankfully, i decided to give his album a chance and may the angels shoot me arrows of love for that one bruh. Pure R&B perfection. He has the vocals, he has the style and he has the production. This album deserved a grammy nomination for album of the year. “Do You” has been my SHIT for a couple months now and i’m glad to see it’s making moves on the charts. “Adorn” is obviously also one of my favorites. The use of actual live instruments really pleased me as i’m very critical when it comes to music production. He’s not afraid to take risks either, both lyrically (Use Me) and productionally (Don’t Look Back), Miguel does it all. I’m already looking forward to his third studio album.
Some of you may know i’ve also started loving Elle Varner and the flawless album she released earlier this year. “Perfectly Imperfect” didn’t make my list because i simply thought it was too short. I still believe she is the best new artist on the urban scene though so i’m happy to see her getting a little recognition and i couldn’t leave her out of this. Thanks for reading :)
