Pitbull

#1 - Pitbull ft. Chris Brown - International Love

Though Pitbull calls himself “Mr. 305” out of loyalty to the Magic City, the moniker “Mr. Worldwide” would be equally apt—over the course of his career, the Latin-rap heavyweight's attracted a truly global...Read More

DJ Khaled

#2 - DJ Khaled ft. Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne - I'm on One

We the Best head honcho DJ Khaled is following up the boisterous, street-certified Welcome to My Hood (and its successful remix) with something a little more club-focused. I'm on One finds Young Money megastar Drake joining...Read More

Tech N9ne

#3 - Tech N9ne ft. Lil Wayne & T-Pain - F*ck Food

With the verbal agility he displays in his musical work, Tech N9ne must have some... other skills as well, right? Indeed—on newly-leaked album standout F*ck Food, the Kansas City underground uses his cunning linguistic...Read More

Drake

#4 - Drake - Dreams Money Can Buy

If DJBooth.net had printing presses, somebody would be running down the hall right now screaming to stop them. What's the occasion? Only a new, apropos-of-nothing-in-particular release from one of the heaviest heavyweights in...Read More

Beyoncé

#5 - Beyoncé - Best Thing I Never Had

As excellent as supposed “second single” 1 + 1 was, the fact that Beyoncé neglected to say “no backsies” at any point in the record should have tipped us off to the fact that the selection was not yet set in stone....Read More

Kid CuDi

#6 - KiD CuDi - Perfect Is The Word

When Lupe departed from hip-hop to record a post-punk LP as Japanese Cartoon, I was intrigued; when Weezy announced his intent to follow up critical and commercial blockbuster Carter III with a rock album, I was baffled; so,...Read More

Nicki Minaj

#7 - Nicki Minaj - Catch Me

As those who follow Nicki Minaj’s Twitter religiously (like I do) already know, only an hour ago the one and only human Barbie let loose of a brand new joint, Catch Me. Originally intended for Nicki’s platinum-selling...Read More

Bad Meets Evil

#8 - Bad Meets Evil - Im on Everything

With current single Fast Lane standing strong at #1 on the Booth's Top Picks chart, Bad Meets Evil have elected to build up anticipation for their new EP by leaking another standout cut off the project. Inspired by a quip...Read More

J. Cole

#9 - J. Cole - Return of Simba

I could go really deep into how this song is sweating Big J, but I'm probably just jaded (shrug). However, with that said, new promo leak Return of Simba is a necessary move on J. Cole's major chessboard; it begins to answer...Read More

Lil Wayne

#10 - Lil Wayne ft. Rick Ross - John

I don't know about y'all, but these past few months I've been praying to the hip-hop gods that installment number four in Lil Wayne's Carter saga will be every bit as brilliantly insane as its predecessor. While 6'7” was a...Read More

I.Y.A.Z

#11 - Iyaz ft. Travie McCoy - Pretty Girls

Life is tough for the chronically indecisive; whether you're vacillating between several equally appealing items on a lunch menu or weighing the relative pros and cons of kicking it in the front versus the back seat, it seems...Read More

Beyoncé

#12 - Beyoncé - 1+1

Before you say a word, yes I'm writing about Beyoncé. Yes, Beyoncé Knowles the singer. Ha! I hope you don't have a problem with a self-proclaimed Hip-Hop head commenting on some R&B, but I actually dig the record. With it's...Read More

Tinie Tempah

#13 - Tinie Tempah ft. Wiz Khalifa - Till I'm Gone

While rock and R&B import artists from England to the U.S. on a seemingly daily basis, so far U.K. hip-hop artists have found crossing the proverbial pond a tricky proposition (word to Dizzee Rascal). Hoping to be the first...Read More

Bad Meets Evil

#14 - Bad Meets Evil - Fast Lane

Unless you’re a true hip-hop head, and have been since the ‘90s, it’s hard to describe how excited I am to learn that Royce da 5’ 9” and Eminem have finally put their ridiculous beef aside and are once again making...Read More

Pitbull

#15 - Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo & Nayer - Give Me Everything

Known for pumping out hits like BP pumps oil into the Gulf (is it too late for that joke?), Pitbull has developed the perfect formula for that thing we call the “single.” Year after year, I’ve heard a Pitbull song...Read More

Kelly Rowland

#16 - Kelly Rowland ft. Lil Wayne - Motivation

From her Destiny’s Child days to the review I wrote for her previous Ms. Kelly album, I’ve heard my fair share of Kelly Rowland. Still, I’m no Rowlandologist, so while I’m sure truly dedicated fans will be brimming...Read More

Frank Ocean

#17 - Frank Ocean - Novacane

Though the jury still seems to be split on whether Tyler, the Creator's a visionary genius or a kid with a few screws loose (or, y'know, both), the one Odd Future member who everyone seems to agree is going places is Frank...Read More

Pitbull

#18 - Pitbull ft. Marc Anthony - Rain Over Me

If you're average recording artist is an artisan, meticulously hand-crafting each record before releasing it to the public, then Pitbull is a one-man assembly line. That's not a criticism of his work – it's just that the...Read More

T-Pain

#19 - T-Pain - You Copying Me

To prime the masses for the release of his fourth studio album rEVOLVEr, T-Pain is dropping an aptly-named 30-track mixtape, prEVOLVEr, and leaking the new single You Copying Me. In 2005, a young Teddy emerged onto the music...Read More
