Drake

#1 - 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

Bad Meets Evil

#2 - 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

Kelly Rowland

#3 - 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

Big Sean

#4 - Big Sean - I Don't Think They Want It

With his debut studio album, at long last, headed for store shelves, G.O.O.D Music mainstay Big Sean is suddenly having second thoughts. Reasoning, “I Don't Think They Want It,” the Motown repper has decided to push the...Read More

Lupe Fiasco

#5 - Lupe Fiasco ft. Trey Songz - Out of My Head

Now that the, well, fiasco that was the release of Lupe's third full-length has largely died down, it's possible to appreciate Lasers for what it is: a quality, if uncharacteristically pop-oriented addition to the Chitown...Read More

Tinie Tempah

#6 - 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

Lil Wayne

#7 - 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

Jason Derulo

#8 - Jason Derulo - Don't Wanna Go Home

It's practically a law of pop physics that, when an urban-music heavyweight has a hit using a particular sample, other artists and producers will jump on the source material, hoping to secure their own piece of the action....Read More

Big Sean

#9 - Big Sean - I Do It

It's hard to tell Big Sean's story without heavy usage of the word “finally.” It was two years after their first meeting in '05 before Kanye finally signed the Motown native, three more before he got the gears turning for...Read More

New Boyz

#10 - New Boyz ft. Chris Brown - Better With The Lights Off

There are a lot of people out there, and I’ll be honest and included myself among them, who thought the New Boyz wouldn’t last long after their smash You’re a Jerk exploded onto the charts. But group members Ben J and...Read More

Pitbull

#11 - 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

Trey Songz

#12 - Trey Songz ft. Drake - Unusual

When Trey Songz lets you know right off the bat that he’s gonna get a little nasty, prepare for a romp that’ll make you either blush or run to your nearest corner store for a pack of rubbers. The R&B lothario and his...Read More

DJ Drama

#13 - DJ Drama ft. Fabolous, Roscoe Dash & Wiz Khalifa - Oh My

Industry tastemaker and mixtape icon DJ Drama is prepping for the release of his third full-fledged Gangsta Grillz album. For a taste of the bombastic musical goodness that's in store, check out Oh My, a high-impact club cut...Read More

Bruno Mars

#14 - Bruno Mars - The Lazy Song

If you watched the Grammys like I did (on delay, shouts to YouTube), you might have caught the performance of a man who goes by the name of Bruno Mars. I’ve been a fan of the Hawaiian crooner since his Nothing on You hit...Read More

Tyga

#15 - Tyga ft. Chris Richardson - Far Away

As anyone who's ever committed a relationship-ending f*ckup is well aware, the psychological distance created by one breach of trust can be harder to bridge than any amount of physical space. Judging by the latest single off...Read More

Jeezy

#16 - Young Jeezy ft. Lil Wayne - Ballin’

Having received disappointing reviews for his last selection, The Lick, and frankly a few selections before that too, trap star and CTE CEO Young Jeezy pulls out the big guns for the latest street single off his long-awaited...Read More

Flo Rida

#17 - Flo Rida & Pitbull - Turn Around pt.2

Previously-released as a single off Flo Rida's Only 1 Flo EP, Turn Around is back in the form of a new remix (or sequel, if you prefer), set for inclusion in forthcoming summer blockbuster The Hangover II. Pt. 2 of the...Read More

Akon

#18 - Akon ft. Big Meech - Time Is Money

Akon’s Time is Money leaked a little over a year ago, but today we finally get the final, mastered version, which finds the Konvict CEO replacing former guest feature Caribbean duo Rock City with Big Meech (yes, that Big...Read More

T-Pain

#19 - T-Pain ft. Chris Brown - Best Love Song

Valentine's Day may be over, but T-Pain's still spreading love the best way he can: through the same whimsical AutoTune stylings that have become his signature. Thankfully, the Nappy Boy CEO took a break from buying...Read More
