Usher

Usher ft. Bun B - Get Into My Car

Last night, I came across VH1’s Usher Behind the Music and I couldn’t stop watching. As a young 20-something year old transitioning into the “real world,” I realized that not only did I grow up on Usher, but also grew...Read More

Maejor

Bei Maejor - Kisses in the VIP

For someone in an exclusive relationship, the club is a minefield of temptations – when young, attractive individuals collide with free-flowing liquor and sexually-charged grooves, stuff tends to, um, happen. Fresh off the...Read More

Justin Garner

Justin Garner - Like It or Not

Sorry to break it to you, ladies: you're going to fall in love with Justin Garner, no matter If You Like It or Not. That doesn't change anything for the 99.9% of guys and gals in the Booth who have fallen for the rising soul...Read More

Sean Kingston

Sean Kingston ft. Nicki Minaj - Letting Go (Dutty Love)

Let’s be real. A certain percentage of Booth nation saw that teen heartthrob Sean Kingston had a new song with Nicki Minaj called Letting Go (Dutty Love) and skipped right past. Their loss, because what they’re missing is...Read More

Trey Songz

Trey Songz - Already Taken

Just in time for the season when folks are driving around with the top down, vibing out to their latest favorites, Trey Songz drops off a new song for fans to add to their summer rotation. Contrary to reports that Already...Read More

Rock City

Rock City - All I Want

There's nothing like a potential romance to make you switch up your priorities – at least temporarily. Though the Konvict/Geffen/Interscope Rebelution brass have yet to heed the U.S. Virgin Islands-bred brothers' call and...Read More

Lyfe Jennings

Lyfe Jennings - Statistics

After reading the title of Lyfe Jennings' latest single, Statistics, I wasn't quite sure what to expect – but I was definitely not expecting to hear the Jesus Swings/Asylum/WMG singer deliver a thought-provoking commentary...Read More

Jazmine Sullivan

Jazmine Sullivan - Holding You Down (Going in Circles)

2008 was an excellent year for music, due in large part to the contributions of Philly songstress Jazmine Sullivan with her singles Need U Bad (where she couldn’t get over her man), Bust Your Windows (where she was this...Read More

Ne-Yo

Ne-Yo - Beautiful Monster

Decked out in a tux, bow tie, and maybe even a pair of white gloves, Ne-Yo was definitely prepared for 2008 (a.k.a. the “Year of the Gentleman”), and emerged in 2009 with platinum cuff links and a list of songwriting...Read More

Shontelle

Shontelle - Impossible

Shontelle's debut set, released first in Nov. '08 and then re-released in March '09, may not have been the breakout success she was hoping for, but don't think for a second that she's let that discourage her. Knowing that...Read More

Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys ft. Drake - Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready) (Remix)

More than five months after Drake did some ad-lib work on Alicia Keys' aching beautiful Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready), for my money the best song off her The Element of Freedom album, Drizzy’s back to finish what he started on...Read More

I.Y.A.Z

I.Y.A.Z - So Big

Despite two successful singles, Virgin Islands-bred pop star I.Y.A.Z.' freshman set still has yet to arrive (in the U.S., anyway). At this point, of course, there's only one thing to do: drop another single – one So Big...Read More

Steph Jones

Steph Jones - B E A utiful

Since Autotune-drenched club cut Galactic 2 hit our front page back in December of '09, up-and-coming singer Steph Jones has been a busy man – in addition to playing a major role on Breathing Underwater, an ABC...Read More

Anjulie

Anjulie - Warrior (L.A. Riots Remix)

If an artist wants to achieve large scale success, they have to possess certain attributes: looks, talent and a will to keep fresh ideas in an otherwise stagnant market. Luckily for Anjulie, she carries all three without even...Read More

The-Dream

The-Dream - Turnt Out

Disclaimer: I had to send in this intro mad late. It needed to be tested out, if you know what I mean. Sorry, but when The-Dream releases a new single like Turnt Out, you can’t really understand the music unless it's in its...Read More

Nina Sky

Nina Sky ft. Naledge (of Kidz in the Hall) - Only You (Take Me Away)

While many in the Booth gave Nina Sky's most recent solo feature, '80s remake You Ain't Got It (Funk That), a thumbs-up, there were others who found the retro retread a little ho-hum. If you're still waiting on proof that...Read More

Ne-Yo

Ne-Yo - Champagne Life

As a child, I would run around the house with a tape deck and spontaneously break out into a dance session doing my best Michael Jackson impressions (come on, I know I wasn’t the only one). I could never resist the urge,...Read More

Avery Storm

Avery Storm - Supermodel

Featured back in April, Avery Storm's official debut single found the singer unable to think about any female but the one who'd just walked out of his life – there simply wasn't a woman in the world who could measure up to...Read More

Usher

Usher ft. will.i.am - OMG

Before we listen to Usher’s new single OMG let’s take a moment to recognize that nothing less than the fate of text-related singles hangs in the balance. LOL Smiley Face was a travesty, but Ludacris recently revived the...Read More
