Quite possible the best party song to come out in the last who knows how many years, gets a treatment from Benny Benassi (Beautiful People, Cinema, Satisfaction). I still think I will go with the original, but this is definitely worth a listen.

I can’t believe I am posting this. This is Nicki’s first single off her new album, Pink Friday : Roman Reloaded. Nicki has had a great deal of success this past year, mostly because just like her labelmate Drake, she can rap and sing. Yes, some of her lyrics are ridiculous, and this song is no different, but she has become hip hop’s Lady Gaga if you will, amassing a ton of fans both female and male. This song is just her alter ego Roman going off, with lines such as: “ain’t on my period, but I got a little pad,” “and I ball…, underwear.” Oh yes, this is what sells today. I can’t be too harsh she has had some great singles that you can’t help but like, and she, like Lil’ Wayne, gives very nice features on other songs. Take a listen and judge for yourself, but I can’t see people liking this. Just my two cents.

Final one from the vault for now, this one brings together Yeezy and Pain back around the “Good Life,” era. Over a simple piano backdrop, Kanye and T-pain go back and forth delivering a chilling sounding track. This eventually went to Good Music artist GLC, but didn’t sound as good as the original.
