It’s getting- strike that, it IS hot in herre. So what better time to kick back, crank up the A/C, enjoy a nice frosty beverage and check out the oh-so cool tunes that Republic Records has available this week.
On July 23rd, hip-hop fans will have a very good reason to thrown their hands up in the air. Rich Gang’s self-titled album is going to bring some flava to your ears. The first compilation from Young Money and Cash Money Records, Rich Gang is a freaking who’s who of hip-hop and features not only YMCM stars like Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Mack Maine, Birdman and Tyga but heavyweights that include French Montana, R.Kelly, Chris Brown, T.I. and Future. Sleep on this joint at your own peril.
That same day Ariana Grande drops “Baby I”. The latest single from her forthcoming album, “Baby I” is a high-power showcase for Ariana’s tremendous vocal range. And speaking of range, Thomas Azier’s Hylas 001 and Hylas 002 gives you the full spectrum of dramatic, entrancing and hard to forget pop-electronica from the Berlin based artist. On a slightly more laid back, but no less emotional tip, James Bay’s EP Dark of the Morning is a taste of this acclaimed British singer-songwriters soulful and folky sound. Rounding things up is Enrique Iglesias’s new single; the hi- energy clubs ready “Turn the Night Up”. Ladies and gentleman; ignore what you’ve heard. Enrique is the man who is bringing sexy back. Yo; is it hot in herre or is just us?
