Listen: The Best of April – Top 12 Records

The Best-of-April-Image

Last month, we missed doing a monthly recap list, but it was mostly because March wasn’t too great with the singles that were released. However, April started off strong making up for it with the major comeback of Maxwell, and plenty more solid records from established stars and newcomers.

Chris Brown was pissing people off on social media, but on the music tip he surprised us all dropping the anticipated 2nd and 3rd star-studded remixes to his single “Back To Sleep.”

Rising artists like Ro James and Rush Davis had us in our feelings, T-Pain called out all the Instagram vixens who don’t even speak in their selfie vids, and Mary J slayed while reuniting with British hitmaker ROMANS.

Enough chat though, check out our list for The Best of April – Top 12 Records below!

New Music: Chris Brown feat. Tank, R. Kelly & Anthony Hamilton – Back To Sleep (Remix)

Back To Sleep Remix 3


If you were headed to church this morning you might just need to jump right back into that bed. Chris Brown surprised us early Sunday morning with the third edition of his “Back To Sleep” remixes, and he switched up the expected features in a major way!

After sharing the second remix with August Alsina, Miguel and Trey Songz, the R&B superstar returns with Part 3 featuring Tank, R. Kelly and Anthony Hamilton, what a combo!!!

The General kicks things off with a very sexual verse, singing “Keep that good wood on me, you loving this stick talk.” The King comes in for a surprisingly less provocative second verse, singing, “Yea I’m pimpin’ in it, 12 Play came, gangsta leanin’ in it.” Hamilton closes the show with his grown and sexy vibe, singing, “I’m here to represent girl, leave ya lying there shaking, till you just can’t take it.”

Fellas, this one gonna work for ya all day long! Take a listen below.

Watch: Tank Talks ‘Sex Love & Pain II,’ Relationship Goals and Oversaturation in R&B


Since the release of his seventh studio album Sex, Love & Pain II, Tank has been on the ride of his life with the “Sex Love & Pain Tour.”  The Grammy-nominated singer recently got together for a private dinner with a select group of media, his label–Atlantic Records–and Tanqueray to celebrate his newest endorsement for Tanqueray 10. The company announced Tank’s signature drink, The General, and toasted to his future as an ambassador.

During my exclusive interview with Tank, he discussed how he approached the sequel to his classic album 2007’s Sex, Love and Pain.

“I have to be able to connect anticipation with a great piece of work,” he explained. “The blessing in the process was that people allowed ‘Sex Love and Pain 2’ to be it’s own project.”

Nearly 10 years later, he delivered authentic R&B and incorporated 2016 feel good sounds that attracted to an audience on a larger scale. He went on to share his thoughts on the current state of music, his very own record label R&B Money, and how he maintains being a father, a singer, and an actor.

Watch: Tyrese Premieres ‘The Black Book’ Short Film co-starring V. Bozeman & Tank


Happy Easter, from Tyrese!

The multi-talented entertainer has premiered his anticipated mini-movie, ‘The Black Book,’ co-starring singers V. Bozeman and Tank. The music video short film tells a story of lust, struggle, infidelity and lasting love, set to “You Can’t Break Me,” as well as “Waiting On You” and “Prior To You,” off Tyrese’s 2015 album Black Rose.

Making his directorial debut, and inspired by the modern romance classic The Notebook, Ty borrowed elements from the film to create his own compelling story of true love. Much like the Nicholas Sparks tale, this film features an elderly couple, who are celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary. Due to his wife’s Alzheimer’s, an older version of Ty tries threading this story together, going down a sometimes painful memory lane, one filled with arguments, forgiveness and love.

As he tells the story, fans see it unfold on-screen in the form of the aforementioned musical numbers.
