Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Mary J. Blige To Young Money

It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin! As I’ve been writing this, my own jams have been competing with my neighbor’s — he just got a karaoke machine for the holidays. Must admit, the dude can really do justice to the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Under The Bridge.” But, the question remains, will you be blaring Mary J. Blige, Young Money, or Hurricane Chris new releases 15 years down the road in your living room? So, let’s get into the groove after the jump …

Mary J. Blige, Stronger With Each Tear
Mary is still killin’ it! The mostly disco pop tracks are tempered with her signature vocal stylin’ moans. Plus, she’s got a guest spot from T.I. and Drake.

Young Money, We Are Young Money
Lil Wayne introduces his supa stars, including Drake— it’s his big week! But sadly, their hype is stronger than their rhymes.

Hurricane Chris, Unleashed
Basically, this guy wrote the dude equivalent of “David Duchovny, Why Won’t You Love Me” about Halle Berry. Bold way to hit on a superstar, but that’s nothing when you consider his name and that he’s from Louisiana. He’s blowin’ us away.
