New Joint: Kelis "Home"

[audio:http://www.ykigs.com/616.mp3] Each new song we hear from Kelis further validates the fact that she has abandoned her urban r&b sound for this album in favor of a more techno/dance sound. While it might work for her, I will always prefer…

New Music: Faith Evans “Track Hot” (Freestyle)

This is the second time in as many weeks we’ve heard Faith take to a freestyle to express herself. Maybe she’s just warming up those vocals chords! All joking aside, I’m excited that we should be getting a new album…

New Music: JoJo “Can’t Take That Away From Me”

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard something new from JoJo, and I’d been starting to wonder on the status of her upcoming album. Apparently, the album “All I Want is Everything” is still scheduled to be released in September 2010,…

New Music: James Fauntleroy “Ballpark” (Produced by The Underdogs)

We’ve highlighted many songwriters on the site before, but for no good reason, we seem to have not give James Fauntleroy the shine he deserves. Previously part of the super production team The Underdogs, Fauntleroy has written for artists like…

New Joint: Danny Boy "Just Ride" featuring Roger Troutman & Jo Jo (Produced by Devante Swing)

[audio:http://www.ykigs.com/610.mp3] When I write “new joint,” I’m actually referring to the fact the song just recently released. In this case though, the song was actually recorded back around 1995 for Death Row Records, so it’s far from “new” in that…

New Music: 112 “Don’t Wanna Be Alone”

“Don’t Wanna Be Alone” is a currently unreleased song by 112 that came out a few years ago. The release came after Slim had left the group to pursue his solo career, and the trio were deciding whether or not…

New Joint: Marques Houston "Pullin on Hair"

[audio:http://www.ykigs.com/604.mp3] We previously heard a snippet of this song labeled as “She’s Lovin,” now here is the full version. here are the my comments when I first heard it, and I still stand by them: Ugh, Marques is really frustrating…

New Music: Solange “Next Ex” (Beyonce Demo)

This is the demo of a song Beyonce recorded a few years back. The song was supposed to wind up on Beyonce’s “I Am Sasha Fierce” album but ultimately did not make the cut. Here is a fan made version…

New Joint: Solange “Electric Blue”

To be honest, when we saw the title of this song we thought it might be a remake of the classic 80’s rock song by Icehouse. See with Solange, you never know, she’s very versatile. However, it seems to be…

New Music: Q. Parker “Do Over” (Produced by Bryan Michael Cox)

Rest assured, 112 is back in the studio as a group, so this might simply be a leftover from Q. Parker’s planned solo release from 2008. Just like the rest of the group, Q had planned to release his own…
