Jaheim’s New Album Another Round

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/XfHOwo6xnl4" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

The new album from Jaheim, Another Round, including the remix of “Ain’t Leavin Without You ft Jadakiss” and “Finding My Way Back” will be released tomorrow. On Another Round, Jaheim maintains the lush vocals, relatable singles and uplifting lyrics that have become his trademark since his 2001 debut, and continues to refine the sound of his 2007 album, The Makings of a Man. In a time when artists are known mostly for celebrity connections, or whether or not they use Autotune, Jaheim is just what the industry needs.

Si*Sé “This Love” Crystal Pharoah Remix

On the upcoming Si*Sé Gold EP, singer/DJ Carol C‘s voice evokes a sophisticated sensuality, singing in English and Spanish over producer Cliff Cristofaro‘s post-trip-hop grooves. The band also includes drummer Ryan Farley, bassist Morgan Phillips, percussionist Neil Ochoa and violinist Nicole Arena.

For the single “This Love,” Carol turned to Cristofaro for a “Motown-ish track.” He was ready for the request, pulling out a sweetly spaced rhythm with plenty of room for Carol’s dream-like vocals to fly over: her heartfelt convictions, one which has caused innumerable fans to connect to her with, is in full force here. “I was talking to many different people around the same time,” she says, “and they all seemed to be in search of the perfect love. This song came out of those conversations.”  We also have a remix from The Crystal Pharoah (aka the producer, Cliff Cristofaro), a divine slice of disco cut with trilling string trimmings.

Official Leak from Erykah Badu’s New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh

Erykah Badu Erykah Badu has announced the release date for her fifth studio album, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh. The new album is the singer’s hotly anticipated follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2008 disc, New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War.

In contrast to New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War, which was digitally produced and political in tone, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh features lush live instrumentation and taps into Badu’s emotional side by thematically focusing on romance and relationships. “With Part One, I was standing at an apex, looking at what was going on around me politically, socially, and economically,” Badu explained. “With Part Two, I’m hovering over me, looking at what’s going on inside of me.”
