This morning, well afternoon. I awoke to text messages from Wexx saying “I just found a dope new artist!” I hopped off of my futon and signed online to find a pending iChat transfer about a OFWGKTA affiliate named Frank Ocean. Upon the first listen I was stuck! I sat through breakfast, lunch and bathroom breaks amazed by the sounds coming out of my speakers. Nothing wrong can be said about this 10 song disc with video game named skits. From his sampling of The Eagles “Hotel California” on “American Wedding”, to his un-intentional radio ready remake in “Nature Feels”. Stand out tracks “Novacane”, “Swim Good” and “Songs For Women,” this portrays what an emerging artist sounds like.
Hit the jump to listen to Frank Ocean’s brand new mixtape Nostalgia, ULTRA.

Consisting of the first single and 3 additional records, showcasing his raw musicianship and eclectic style — a real jambalaya of soul, R&B and rock. Take a step into the world of one of today’s brightest rising stars below.
In an era of sooner than later Kelly Rowland’s anticipated new single has just surfaced. The Jim Jonsin produced “Motivation” features Lil Wayne and was written by Rico Love. A very sultry, simple, bass driven production leads the mellow track as Kelly takes you into her bedroom as she sings “Whoa lover/Don’t you dance, slow down/Go longer/You can last more rounds/Push harder/You’re almost there now/So go lover/Make mama proud”. Let Kelly be your ‘motivation’ now! This version has tags, so check it out and stay tuned!UPDATE: Here is your exclusive release of the official, CDQ, radio version! It’s a whole minute shorter, but this record gets better with each listen. I can already hear the dance remix potential, for all the fans wanting her to stick to that side of music, there is supposedly a Diplo remix coming soon as well. Check it out now, and stay tuned for the video.
