50 Cent – Baby By Me ft. Ne-Yo

This one has yet to grow on me, this could be one of those cases where a visual is needed, simply as it is something different from both artists, it is a heavyweight collaboration, I guess that is my problem with it, 50 Cent and Ne-Yo, yet the track itself does not represent their status, Fabolous and Ne-Yo – Make Me Better had a far greater impact, this however feels rushed and a desperation move from 50 to get his name back on the top, surprisingly it has fallen, the likes of Drake, Kanye and Lil’ Wayne have all remained consistent, Jay-Z has even re-instated his position with Blueprint 3, Eminem proved that he is still one of the best and so the pressure really is on 50 Cent to deliver, this however is not a good attempt.

Ghostface Killah – Guest House ft. Fabolous & Shareefa

I like this, Ghost gets his story telling on with the help of Shareefa and Fabolous, Guest House is like a Hip-Hop version of R. Kelly, Chante Moore and Ron Isley’s ‘Contagious’

Fabolous – Everything, Everyday, Everywhere ft. Keri Hilson

Produced by Ryan Leslie (Cassie – Me & U), this might just be one of the best productions this year, it is a big statement but when this plays loud, it takes over, the beat is not just unique, it’s emphatic, not too aggresive yet sounds tough at the same time, Ryan Leslie is a master of his craft, the underrated producer provides Fabolous with what might just be another hit, it has certainly helped as his album Loso’s Way is currently #1 on the Billboard charts.

The video (which is also a scene from the album’s accompanying movie Loso’s Way) is a paperazzi’s point of view at Fabolous’ launch party, with Cameos from the likes of Trey Songz, Ace Hood, Rick Ross has a comical appearance, as well as Jadakiss, Ryan Leslie and off course Miss Keri Hilson herself (who is looking good as usual). It is a lavish set as you would expect, but it fits well, the paperazzi eye view makes it fit in whilst standing out from the traditional ‘flossing’ videos that we have become accustomed to definitely latc

Overall, Everything, Everyday, Everywhere (currently being heavily rotated on radio in the states) is a crossover gem that I am sure Ryan, Loso and Keri are proud to have, with Fab putting out numerous ‘street’ videos for the underground audience, the mainstream will definitely latch onto this smash as Fabolous looks to reinstate himself as a Hip-Hop heavyweight.

Here is some in-studio footage from the making of the song:

You have to respect the talented Mr Leslie, a real musician.

Lady Ny – Birthday Sex REMIX

The UK singer puts her own twist on the Jeremih chart-blazer that is Birthday Sex,

Firstly, the original Jeremih – Birthday Sex has become a major success for the young singer, so successful that many artists have done their remixes, including UK’s own Tinie Tempah, Wretch 32 flipped it completely with First Place Wretch, Teairra Mari’s version was so good..she pretty much made it her own, even Brooke Hogan has a remix, however, now comes another remix but a unique one.

The extremely talented and just as beautiful Lady Ny has put out what I think is the best remix so far, the best thing about this track is that she does not follow the original’s catchy flow, Tiearra Mari literally reversed the roles and sang the same lyrics as Jeremih, however, with this effort Lady Ny has written a whole new song, her voice sounding better than ever, soft and smooth yet powerful and full of feeling, one of the biggest things missing in many of today’s singers is ‘soul’, that believable feeling, that relation, the way you feel when you hear someone like Robin Thicke grace the mic or even the late and great Marvin Gaye, Lady Ny has soul in abundance as she controls the melody, creating a classic of her own.
