Trey Songz Trey Songz - “I Invented Sex (Remix)”

“DJ Z: "Usher sounds great here - he needs to pick a single that sounds more like this for himself." -> I couldn't agree more, he needs a hot track with this kind of sound to relaunch. This remix is a huge improvement over the original, the hotness definitely jumped up a few notches. Tracks like this always sound better when there are some female verses to play off of. In this case, getting a hot commodity like Keri Hilson worked perfectly. I still would've liked to hear the beat improved a bit. It was a bit on the generic side, a better beat for the remix would've really stepped it up.”

Rick Ross Rick Ross - “All I Really Want (Remix)”

“I don't know what it is, but for some unexplainable reason, I seldom get tired of all the remixed Rick Ross tracks. It must have something to do with his addictive beats and the flow of the track. His beats are so smooth but the beats hit so hard, fluid and fast. Loved the Twista bit, he threw it down like his old stuff, DEFINITELY a positive contribution to this track. I don't think there was anything new from the-dream on this one. I'm impartial to Krayz's part in this. It's always been a good track for me, the additions gave it a little refresher, that's all.”

Trey Songz Trey Songz - “I Need A Girl (Remix)”

“Fab did to this track what he did to The-Dream's Rockin' That Thang; setting the flow and rhythm for the rest of the song, his contribution may seem insignificant, but it definitely compliments the song in a positive way. Teyana Taylor provides some nice harmonies to trey songz, but nothing that really changed the dynamics of the song. This has been my fav rnb track for the past couple months and this remix has given it a bit of a refresher. My one gripe is that took away Trey's "Sitting Patient, Steady Waiting, for the day when I can face it", which really vibe'd with me (can't really explain why), with Teyana Taylor's cleverly placed "Boy I'm waiting, Got me Patient, and today is the day that you face it". Some little touches where I would consider this a 'smart' remix. Like.”

Nice & Smooth - “Funky For You '09”

“What what?? A remake of Funky For You. This is such a different take on the original! I can't quite remember where the beat was from... IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY!! (someone please let me know).”

Q-Tip Q-Tip - “We Fight, We Love (Remix) ft. Kanye West & Consequence”

“Amazing track for the first half. Kanye always blows me away with how well he flows with the beat, there's a strong sense of musicality to it (I think a lot of people forgotten how good Kanye is due to his ever evolving style). Q-Tip's bars were right up there with Kanye's, except his little hook in the middle dragged on a little too much. AND that drew away from the feel set earlier on. I actually felt Con`s verses did not suit the track as well as the other two.”
