I will say it again, David Guetta is a machine for producing radio hits and his album is full of them. We shared earlier his collaboration with Chris Brown and Lil’ Wayne, now I give you his next big hit on deck, “Without You.” Combining his top notch dance production with Usher Raymond’s vocals works perfectly here, and will be sure to be heard in every club very soon.
R3K has two banging remixes on his hands here. I first heard his “Fly By Night” remix back at the beginning of summer, where he took a sample from Imogen Heap’s “Just for Now” and mixed it with Lil Wayne’s verses on “Swag Surfin.'” For a while, I had a problem and couldn’t help but hit play on that track everytime I grabbed my ipod. Then just recently, while searching the youtubes, I stumbled across this gem which was apprently released at the same time. This one takes Cudi’s vocals off “Symphonies” and lays it over Florence + The Machine’s “Cosmic Love.” Incredible.
Sometimes I hear a song, absolutely love it, and think it will be a huge radio hit. But for some reason the promotion and radio machine fails and a hit song never gets the due listens it deserves. Case in point, “Far Far Away.” Catchy hook check. Featured American Idol alumni, check. Up and coming hip hop artist who raps about something other than cars and bitches, check. Tyga, who besides Wayne, Drake, and Nicki, as the only other viable artist on the Young Money roster gives us his best shot at a pop single. Give it a listen, I hope you will agree.
