After releasing his last album DNA Mario went a little bit quiet, the good news is that he’s back! He promises to bring a refreshing sound to R&B with his new forthcoming album starting with this, the new single featuring Minaj called Somebody Else produced by the one and only Polow Da Don.
This is a VERY good start I’d say! Welcome back Mario.

As The Dream gets ready to release his 5th (?!?!?!?!) studio album IV Play, we get to hear the whole thing in full via the powers of the internet.
I have such high expectations for this album, I’m afraid however that just like the last 3 I’ll be seriously let down. His debut and second albums were, in my eyes, classics. They pushed the boundaries of how R&B music sounded at the time and made it exciting again. Tracks such as She Needs My Love, Walkin On The Moon and, the 6 minute monster Right Side Of My Brain were the records
which made The Dream stand out from the rest.
You can click here to check all the tracks, I’ve posted up this one however because it features Queen B, Beyonce herself.

After winning over brand new fans with the brill Blurred Lines, Robin Thicke is unleashing the second single from the forthcoming album of the same name.
4 The Rest of My Life shows the side of Robin a lot of his female fans love, the slow, thoughtful side, and hey, I’m also a fan of this. It reminds me of the Lost Without You days back in ye olde 2006…
Have a listen HERE!!

We haven’t heard from Jay in a while, he’s been busy working on his second studio album entitled Neon. The first single, released on June 25th features Rick Ross and is called Mars.
In true Jay Sean fashion this is a smooth tune with an added element of gangster-ness from Rick.

Played for the first time on BBC Radio 1 by Annie Mac on Friday, this is the brand new single from Katy B!
It’s been a while since we’ve had a proper single release from Katy, she of course had the mixtape release which was huge but it’s good to see her back back back properly back.
What Love Is Made Of is another huge club record which will no doubt sound perfect in the sun!

This was sitting in my inbox this afternoon, brand new music from Dizzee Rascal. He’s touring around Europe with Muse this month – as you do, and he has a new track for us, H Town with Bun B and Trea Tha Truth.
Produced by A-Trak, this track is taken from his new album The Fifth which is expected this summer.
Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna first appeared in my life with her beautiful track Live Your Life, it was a song which was on constant repeat last summer during my travels around Europe and holiday in America, I urge you to listen to it, simply stunning.
I Wanna Go is another superb listen with again, a summer theme throughout.

This track has funk, synths and two sassy ladies who can SING!

Mac Miller is all set to go with the first single from his forthcoming album Watching Movies With The Sound Off. S.D.S aka Somebody Do Something is produced by Flying Lotus and has a real summer time vibe, as well as that S.D.S brings an old school 90′s sound with the help of not only Lotus’s production but Macs chilled out flow. A really strong listen!

Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman aka London Grammar return with their next release. Wasting My Young Years is the follow up to Metal & Dust, taken from the EP of the same name.

This is one hell of a big tune, I played it on episode 142 of my podcast as the first track, and it sounded perfect.
With a summer esque production helped by Sam Smith’s perfect vocal ability, this is a future hit!
