BJ The Chicago Kid

#1 - BJ The Chicago Kid - Good Luv'n

Marsha Ambrosius

#2 - Marsha Ambrosius - Cold War

Trey Songz

#3 - Trey Songz - Fumble

Despite what you may think Trey Songz’ new pseudo-ballad Fumble is not an ode to Jets starting QB Mark Sanchez, who has a tendency to cough up the rock. Although not a professional football player, Songz knows what it's...Read More

Timbaland

#4 - Timbaland ft. Lil Wayne, Missy Elliott & T Pain - The Party Anthem

Depending on how you look at it, the latest release in Timbaland's ongoing digital series is either too early or too late. On the one hand, it would have made a ton of sense to drop a record called “The Party Anthem” on...Read More

Ne-Yo

#5 - Ne-Yo ft. Wiz Khalifa - Don't Make Em Like You

Women love Ne-Yo because he represents a species perceived to be endangered in this day and age: namely, the gentleman. As a paragon of chivalry and elegance, however, he demands a woman of equally rare class and...Read More

Ludacris

#6 - Ludacris ft. Usher & David Guetta - Rest Of My Life

Sometimes when you want something done the right way you need call an expert. Pipe sprung a leak? Call a plumber. Car won’t start? Grab a mechanic. In the event you should need a club banger to keep the party going, who...Read More

Slim (of 112)

#7 - Slim (of 112) - Muse

Everyone who works in a creative field needs a Muse; someone or something that wakes them up in the morning and gets the creative juices flowing. While a giant cup of coffee (or three) is good enough for yours truly, Slim...Read More

Dido

#8 - Dido ft. Kendrick Lamar - Let Us Move On

If you're a hip-hop head who knows Dido as "Stan's girlfriend,” the UK singer/songwriter probably hasn't been on your radar for a minute, though she's released a handful of successful albums between then and now. With the...Read More

Emerson Brooks

#9 - Emerson Brooks - Bare With Me

Earlier this month, you might have caught Emerson Brooks on Peter Jackson’s single Help. From the sound of his new single Bare With Me, though, it doesn't sound like Brooks needs much assistance. For his first solo feature...Read More

Snoop Lion

#10 - Snoop Lion ft. Mavado & Popcaan - Lighters Up

Just a week after garnering respectable reader reviews for Here Comes the King, Snoop Lion returns to our pages with another fresh single (the third in total) off his forthcoming reggae debut. Major Lazer reprise their role...Read More

Skylar Grey

#11 - Skylar Grey ft. Eminem - C'mon Let Me Ride

It was almost two years ago to the day that the world was truly introduced to Skylar Grey when she provided the vocals to Dr. Dre's I Need A Doctor alongside Eminem. So the timing couldn't be more perfect for the two to...Read More

David Correy

#12 - David Correy - Breaking Away

Last heard pining after an ex-girl on August's reader-acclaimed Meant to Be, 2012 X Factor USA finalist David Correy returns to end the year on a high note with the DJBooth-exclusive world premiere of his latest promotional...Read More

Bad Rabbits

#13 - Bad Rabbits - We Can Roll

Keyshia Cole

#14 - Keyshia Cole ft. Meek Mill - Zero

Keyshia Cole may be an R&B star, but she seems like a pretty level headed woman. She is happy to rush home to get dinner started for her boo and doesn’t mind staying out all night with his homies, but the one thing that she...Read More

Jori King

#15 - Jori King - Rewind

In an effort to remain anonymous while dealing with a personal problem, we've all used the line, “I have this friend who….”? Though it hasn't been a highly effective method of help-seeking in history of mankind, its...Read More

Bruno Mars

#16 - Bruno Mars - Moonshine

I know what you're thinking: with his refined style and considerable cash reserves, Bruno Mars doesn't seem like the kind of guy you'd catch drinking bootleg liquor distilled in some dude's bathtub. Did he miss the memo about...Read More

Jared Evan

#17 - Jared Evan - Letters

Throughout his career to date, Jared Evan's done nothing but exceed listener expectations at every turn. In the artist's personal life, though, there are a few people he feels he's let down. On the opening track off his most...Read More

Bruno Mars

#18 - Bruno Mars - Natalie

For those who think Bruno Mars is strictly a pop artist, you might want to reconsider that assessment thanks to potential new single, Natalie. Sure, the latest featured effort from Mars’ sophomore album still has his...Read More

Avant

#19 - Avant - Best Friend

Can Best Friends become lovers without losing the comfortable relationship they'd previously shared? That's the question we find Avant pondering on the latest single off his seventh studio LP. Over the simmering synth...Read More

Jhené Aiko also wants one thing for for Christmas this year: the love and affection of a certain man. Who's the lucky guy, you ask? Well, he comes around like clockwork every December, and she seems to have a fetish for...Read More

Next Up


Elijah Blake

#21 - Elijah Blake ft. Common - X.O.X

I can tell you from experience that few things suck more than being romantically involved with someone who's still in love with an ex—except, perhaps, being the person who can't get over that old flame. An up-and-coming R&B...Read More

Sebastian Mikael

#22 - Sebastian Mikael - Take Me Higher

Already well-known in his native Sweden, Gothenburg-born singer/songwriter (and Booth newcomer) Sebastian Mikael is looking to make 2013 the year that he breaks through Stateside. As a foretaste of what's to come, the Epic...Read More

Ludacris

#23 - Ludacris ft. R.Kelly & Fabolous - Representin (Remix)

Did you enjoy popping bottles, pounding back shots, and (of course) getting it in to Representin, single numero dos off Ludacris' eighth studio album? Well, I have it on the authority of none other than R&B megastar R. Kelly...Read More
