Drake

#1 - Drake - Marvin’s Room

Despite being a one-off release unattached to any project, unreleased joint Dreams Money Can Buy made an explosive impact when Drake dropped it back in late May. Thus, it should surprise absolutely no one that the first leak...Read More

Bad Meets Evil

#2 - Bad Meets Evil ft. Bruno Mars - Lighters

No, you're not hallucinating; Bad Meets Evil, the lyrically-bruising duo made up of Motown heavyweights Royce Da 5'9" and Eminem, hooks up with R&B-pop heartthrob Bruno Mars on new EP single Lighters. And, though the...Read More

DJ Khaled

#3 - 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

Lloyd

#4 - Lloyd ft. Trey Songz & Young Jeezy - Be the One

On the latest single off his forthcoming senior album, Young Goldie crooner Lloyd makes a play for the affections of a fly female, telling her he's like to Be the One to kiss her goodnight. Over the sizzling boardwork of...Read More

Pitbull

#5 - 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

Big Sean

#6 - Big Sean - So Much More

No question, Big Sean is Finally Famous. After being on my (and Hip Hop’s) radar for over two years now (since the release of 2009’s UKNOWBIGSEAN) to being a couple weeks away from his Def Jam/G.O.O.D. Music debut, the...Read More

Tech N9ne

#7 - 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

#8 - 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

Kelly Rowland

#9 - Kelly Rowland ft. Busta Rhymes, Fabolous & Trey Songz - Motivation (Remix)

Just how effective was Kelly Rowland's last single in helping listeners achieve success beyond their wildest dreams? Well, on the Billboard #1 single's official remix, several heavyweight guests offer their testimonials on...Read More

Pitbull

#10 - 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

Kid CuDi

#11 - 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

Beyoncé

#12 - Beyoncé ft. Andre 3000 & Kanye West - Party (Remix)

It wouldn't quite be accurate to claim that Beyoncé can do no wrong in the Booth lately—the reader response to Run the World (Girls) says otherwise—but the waves of 4/5-star reviews that greeted both pretend second...Read More

Nicki Minaj

#13 - 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

#14 - 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

Beyoncé

#15 - 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

Curren$y

#16 - Curren$y - She Don’t Want A Man

For a stoner Currens$y sure does work a lot. Coming close on the heels of his Covert Coup mixtape, which I have to say opened my eyes to the former Young Money emcee’s skills, the leader of the Jets releases new single She...Read More

Tinie Tempah

#17 - 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

Frank Ocean

#18 - 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

I.Y.A.Z

#19 - 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
