The new tracks are from her upcoming album The Light of the Sun; check out her new website for more info.

Jessie J’s New Release: Who You Are + “Nobody’s Perfect (Netsky Remix)”

Jessie J‘s album Who You Are was released on Universal Republic this week, and unsurprisingly it rose to the top of the charts. You may already know that we jumped on the Jessie wagon early and we’re proud; see The Boombox Series Part 1 – “Who You Are” and Part 2 – “Price Tag”. A few days after we shot The Boombox Series with Arcade 44, her video for “Do It Like A Dude” came out and she blew up. By popular demand, her release date was moved up to this week. Stomp stomp she arrived!

After hearing this sweet new duet, and the fiesty first single, “Shame (ft. Eve),” we cannot wait for the new Jill Scott album this year!

Femi Kuti’s New Release – Africa for Africa + Win Tickets for US Tour

On his album Africa For Africa, released today, Femi Kuti articulates a raw and forceful call to the long tradition of Afrobeat. Recorded in the same studio where he produced his first recordings with his father Fela Kuti and his breakthrough solo album No Cause For Alarm?, Africa for Africa is in several ways a return to Femi’s roots. Deliberately less-produced than its predecessor Day by Day, it aims to present Afrobeat in its roughest, purest form. Femi continues to develop his activist voice on the new album, with the lyrics addressing government oppression and other modern problems in Africa, but the music retains a visceral power.

Win tickets to one of the following shows on Femi’s US Tour:
4/21 – Paradise Rock Club – Boston, MA
4/22 – World Cafe Live – Philadelphia, PA
4/26 – Highline Ballroom – New York, NY
