Music Round-ups: Thank God For the Foreign Exchange…

Over the weekend, Jay released two songs following his lackluster clip for “Run This Town.” Usually this poor showing would make me question the future of hip-hop, but I’ve accepted that “Blueprint 3” is going to be powered by Hov’s celebrity and not good music. Once you accept this, ladies, I promise, you’ll feel much better. But just in case you haven’t heard Jay’s songs:

Jay x Timbaland “Reminder” [MissInfo]

Jay x Drake “Off That” [MissInfo]

Jay x Timbaland “Venus Vs Mars” [MissInfo]

New Karen O and the kids, “All This Love” for Where The Wild Things Are film. I. Can’t. Wait. [MySpace]

Kelly Rowland is becoming a star in her own right [TGJ]

Muse is streaming their album online [NME]

Warning. If you are sad, depressed or generally having a fucked up day—watch this video tomorrow.

J. Baker says: I still take a second look whenever I see Phonte singing, but the track itself is muy bueno and Muhsinah sounds great. Did you get her new joint? Love the City of Angels reference…

  • greg.

    thank you. Someone else who agrees that Phonte’s not a very good singer (almost distracting), yet The Foreign Exchange stays in the rotation.

  • guywithglasses

    Phonte is an everyman singer. We all can hit those notes with a little bit of tea and honey.

  • Let’s not hate on Phonte, people. He could be a LOT worse. I actually don’t mind. Better than Justin Timberlake. Yes.. he is…
