REVIEW: Alicia Keys – Girl On Fire

Artist: Alicia Keys Album: Girl on Fire Genre: R ‘n’b, soul Label: RCA It seems like Alicia Keys has been off the radar for an eternity. Granted, she’s had an eventful couple of years – marriage and motherhood and a role in shaping one of the most outrageously addictive songs of recent years (Jay-Z’s “Empire […]

Colbie Caillat Recruits Common For Her “Favorite Song” Video

The girl who brought us “Bubbly” in 2009 is back with a smooth jam for Summertime. Joined by Common, Colbie Caillat’s new single “Favorite Song” is everything you could hope for in a Summer jam. The beat is supplied by actual instruments, yet ready for the dance floor, and the lyrics are just deep enough […]

STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Chris Brown ft. Rihanna – Turn Up The Music (Remix)

A few minutes later, another remix from the least likely collaboration in pop music has surfaced. Finding Rihanna adding her grace to a song from the guy who beat the crap out of her, the official remix of “Turn Up The Music” is a club-ready hit with plenty of energy to spare. Not quite as […]

Robin Thicke

REVIEW: Robin Thicke – Love After War

Artist: Robin Thicke Album: Love After War Genre: R’n’b, soul Label: Star Trak, Geffen Records First things first, this album is far too long. Worse, it’s uninspired. It’s a nice, easygoing listen with plenty of wannabe seductive numbers but that’s just its problem – too content to rest on its laurels and regurgitate the same […]

REVIEW: T-Pain – rEVOLVEr

Artist: T-Pain Album: rEVOLVEr Genre: R’n’b, hip-hop Label: Nappy Boy, Konvict Muzik, RCA This was a fun album to review. Not because it’s particularly good, but just for how often it makes such a spectacular tool of itself. You can’t but laugh and applaud its blatant and wilful badness. I don’t know if this was […]

STREAM: Common ft. John Legend – The Believer

The only song from Common’s upcoming album featuring a guest appearance has found its way online and UTG has the stream. Combining the already soulful sound of Common with the one-and-only John Legend, “The Believe” gets our hopes very high for the forthcoming release of The Dreamer / The Believer. You can stream the song […]

REVIEW: Amy Winehouse – Lioness: Hidden Treasures

Artist: Amy Winehouse Album: Lioness: Hidden Treasures Genre: Soul, r’n’b, jazz, pop Label : Island Whatever musical successes and wonder stories 2011 has offered and may yet offer us, there are those who will always remember it as the year in which Amy Winehouse went to a tragically early grave. The wealth of talent and ability […]

REVIEW: Trey Songz – Inevitable

Artist: Trey Songz Album: Inevitable EP Genre: R’n’b / hip-hop Label: Atlantic, Songbook Nobody could ever accuse Trey Songz of being a slacker. His output over the past few years has been pretty staggering, with four studio albums since 2005, numerous mixtapes, singles, and now this EP. It’s surprising he isn’t more of a household […]

MIXTAPE(S): Trey Songz – Anticipation 2/LemmeHolDatBeat

The last few years has seen a swell in multi-faceted urban artists. Just being able to rap or croon isn’t enough anymore, you need to be able to do both, as well as produce, dance or some third option that can also be leverage for exposure and business down the line. Drake is obviously the […]
