Chris Brown and Tyga have released “Ayo” from their upcoming Fan Of A Fan 2 album. The new single was produced by Nic Nac (of “Loyal” fame) and is about the two of them riding around town hollering at chicks. Never one for modesty, C-Breezy reminds us of his elite social status by describing to himself as “a bougie ass ni**a,” in the repeating chorus.
Coincidentally, I would describe myself as “bougie” too — just the other day I ordered zucchini fries instead regular ones.
DJ Khaled’s latest single gathers together some of the biggest names in hip-hop, and the result is “Hold You Down,” a song more R&B than Khaled’s typical collaborations. The track is off his upcoming album, I’ve Changed a Lot.
Entertainment Weekly, a site known for their no holds barred journalistic approach, recently asked DJ Khaled “what exactly do you do?” (Finally). He replied:
“It’s not a lot of people, really. DJ Khaled’s obviously one of the biggest DJ’s in the world. DJ Khaled’s also one of the biggest producers in the world. DJ Khaled is also one of the biggest executives in the world. DJ Khaled’s also one of the biggest A&R’s in the world. DJ Khaled also has a management company called We the Best. Also CEO of his own record company called We the Best. A publishing company called We the Best. DJ Khaled is a brand. DJ Khaled is a mogul.”
Do any of these DJ Khaled’s not speak in the third person? Maybe they could give a more satisfying answer.
“Only” is Nicki Minaj’s third single from her upcoming Pinkprint album, which has been delayed again, from November 24, to December 15. The new song features verses from Drake & Lil Wayne, Chris Brown on the hook, and production from by Dr. Luke, Cirkut, and J Mike. Throughout “Only” each rapper makes it abundantly clear that none of them have slept with Nicki (an unusual theme for a rap song):
“I never fucked Wayne, I never fucked Drake. All my life for fuck sake.”
— Nicki Minaj
“I never fucked Nicki because she got a man, but when that’s over I’m first in line.” — Drake
“I never fucked Nicki and that’s fucked up. If I did fuck, she would be fucked up.” — Lil Wayne
And yet, Drake and Wayne remain silent about each other…
Chris Brown teams up with Rick Ross and Usher for “New Flame.” This single marks the first collaboration between Usher and Chris Brown, who is returning the favor by appearing on Usher’s upcoming album. “New Flame” is off of Brown’s long-awaited album, X, which has been “due out soon” for two-and-a-half years.
…is it being produced by the DMV? That would explain his impatient fits of rage.
With assistance from Lil Wayne and French Montana, Chris Brown released the fourth single from his upcoming album, X. “Loyal” is about the untrustworthy girls that rappers encounter who are only interested in money or fame. And if anyone knows untrustworthy things, it would be Chris Brown who said his album, X, would be released in early 2013.
I know, it’s always hard to adjust to writing a new year on your checks… for your disloyal hoes.
Chris Brown recently released, X Files, a mixtape with six tracks that didn’t make the cut for his upcoming album, X. One of those tracks is “Sweet Caroline,” featuring Busta Rhymes, which is really good, despite the fact that it’s not a Neil Diamond cover.
Does anyone else have a sudden and mysterious desire to hear Chris Brown cover the whitest song ever?
B.o.B teams up with a rapping Chris Brown for their latest release, “Throwback” — another cut from B.o.B’s upcoming, Underground Luxury.
Maybe it’s the season, but the sample in the beginning sounds like a Christmas carol, but this song is unlike any Christmas carol I’ve ever heard… unless your Christmas songs have the morality of a dirty pirate hooker.
The second single from Pusha T’s My Name Is My Name, “Sweet Serenade” features vocals from Chris Brown, and slick, choral beat from Kanye.
This song comes from someone with a history of dealing and another with a history of abuse, so it’s about as close to a “Sweet Serenade” as these those two are gonna get.
“Love More” is the third single from Chris’s upcoming album, X. If it’s his sixth album, why is the album called X? Chris explained to Ebony:
“It’s the Roman numeral for 10. 5/5/89 is my birthday: 5 plus 5 is 10, and this is my tenth year since I got into music. ‘X’ is the 24th letter in the alphabet, and I will turn 24 when this album comes out. ‘X’ is also a metaphor, as in ‘ex-girlfriend’: it implies you’re progressing and moving on in life, not holding on to the past and your old ways.”
Oh, that makes perfect sense
…to a coked-up Charlie Sheen.
Yeah, I went there. oh well…
Just like Pope Benedict, both artists appeared on the scene in 2005. But, unlike the Pope, Chris and Rihanna seem well-suited for world domination. Maybe Benedict would have stuck around longer if he delivered dance songs instead of sermons. Who knows…
Say what you will about this infamous couple: they’re frustrating, entertaining, annoying, attractive, but they’ve been dance party staples for the past decade. Enjoy a playlist of some of their best work. (It was definitely challenging to edit this down).
