The-Dream does it again. Now hurry the hell up with Love King, that Ciara album and that (rumored) collabo album with Kanye West.

A-T-L-A-N-T-A-G-A dat where I stay.

Electrik Red: I’m That Chick

Maybe you remember me raving about these girls during the lead up to the release of their debut, How to Be a Lady: Volume 1. Then again, maybe you don’t, because apparently no one bought the album (I got it for $5 the day it came out). This kind of blew my mind, as it was an excellent pop record (written by The-Dream) and really deserved to be huge. Songs like “Freaky Freaky,” “Friend Lover,” “Drink In My Cup” and “W.F.U” would have been major hits with the right promotion behind them (every song on the thing was a potential single).

Well, it looks like my fears of the girls being shelved forever (or worse: dropped) by the label were unfounded, as they’re currently readying How to Be a Lady: Volume 2, featuring this track. Maybe this time around the label can actually promote the thing, if that’s not too much to ask.

Lo-Fi-Fnk are back at last, with their new song/video “Marching In.” Their last album, Boylife, was gorgeous (one of my favorite electronic albums of the ’00s), and it looks like the new one will not disappoint.

T-Pain ft. Jeezy: Reverse Cowgirl

T-Pain gets a lot crap – particularly as he’s seen as the face of the whole autotune movement – but say what you will about him, Thr33 Ringz was a fantastic pop/r&b album, and I’m totally psyched for whatever’s next. If “Reverse Cowgirl” is any indication, should be good stuff.
