Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From The Bravery to Allison Iraheta

It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin. This week it’s all about the booty—but isn’t it always, ladies? Amid the constant stream of Christmas music, there’s a ray of hope, and that ray is a DJ light pointed right at the dance floor, girl. So put on your high heels, ’cause R. Kelly’s socking it to ya; Allison Iraheta gets Idol-worthy; Juvenile backs it up; and The Bravery break out their skinny jeans. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump!

R. Kelly, Untitled
Auto tune tramples on R.Kelly’s stripped-down R&B on this record. Although his disco funk throwback track, “Be My #2”, is hilariously dance-tastic, even if it lacks gentlemanly charm.

The Bravery, Stir The Blood
Dark ’80s electro that broods like a hipster.

Allison Iraheta, Just Like You
Rock street cred be damned, “American Idol” contestant Allison Iraheta’s debut album has tracks Pink probs wishes she could have put on her album.

Juvenile, Cocky And Confident
The Louisiana rapper is still trying to get you to “Back That Ass Up” with his new jams.

Priscilla Renea, Jukebox
The YouTube self-starter puts out her first legit record of bubble gum girl pop. And I like it.
