Here is the latest remix from Marley Marl. This time he does his thing to Mary J. Blige’s hit single, “I Am”. Mary always sounds good over hip hop break beats, so this is a pretty dope new version of the record. Check it out!

Here is the first release from Craig David’s new album, Signed Sealed Delievered. It is titled, “One More Lie (Standing In The Shadows),” and it is an updated or remixed cover. Here is what was said regarding the new album,
His brand new album, ‘Signed Sealed Delivered’ asserts once more why Craig is such a significant artist. Covering a multitude of Motown classics, Craig’s fifth studio offering retains his innovative approach to music-making, while respectfully delving into the past. It’s not the straightforward covers album you’d expect, as Craig gives classics from the likes of Stevie Wonder, the Four Tops and The Temptations a modern twist.
The first single ‘One More Lie (Standing In The Shadows)’ is the perfect example of this, with its beautifully raw 60s soul sample, sitting comfortably over a 21st century hard knock drumbeat, coupled with some of Craig’s most versatile vocals to date. The album features classics such as ‘For Once In My Life’, ‘Papa Was A Rolling Stone’, ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’ and, of course, the title track by Stevie Wonder.
Check out the record below, what do you think?

Toni Braxton’s forthcoming comeback album on Atlantic Records, Pulse is being pushed back again. It was most recently scheduled for March 2nd, it is now expected to see a May 4th release. This has got to be frustrating for Toni. Atlantic is notorious for stalling albums until they feel it has the buzz they think it needs. Even if they have to push another single after the first single is already doing well. We know this means they often don’t release albums at their highest point of buzz. In Toni’s case I can understand the push, but how much will they really put into the budget to get the buzz to that point which they feel is the time. The album, which is the follow-up to “Libra,” will feature productions and songwriting contributions from Soulshock & Karlin, Claude Kelly, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Makeba Riddick, Chuck Harmony and Ne-Yo. Stay tuned.
