VIDEO: KERI HILSON FT TIMBALAND – ‘RETURN THE FAVOR’

Singer Keri Hilson releases her second single ‘Return The Favor’ and hopes that this track will generate some much needed interest in her as a solo artist to be reckoned with. Earlier this year there was all this hype surrounding Keri, but I failed and still fail to see what all the fuss is about. Her live performances leave a lot to be desired (stiff) and her vocals are weak. Slick hairstyles, slick clothing, slick music promos, slick magazine front covers and appearing at event going isn’t going to []

VIDEO: KID CUDI FT JIM JONES – ‘DAY N NITE’ (REMIX)

When I first heard this track today I thought hmmmmm, I like the production and I like the singing towards the end courtesy of new artist on the scene Kid Cudi, but Jim messed up badly. It hurt me to admit it – I mean that’s my Jim Jim, but I felt that what he attempted to bring to this track flopped. BUT then I listened again and I now know that I was wrong. Jim has a unique and mesmerizing singing voice, reminiscent of a young Al Green.  It []
