Reba McEntire | If I Were a Boy [Beyonce Cover]

11 Nov

Kind of obsessed with this cover.

Reba McEntire covers Beyonce’s ‘If I Were a Boy.’

The result? A  pretty mellow, this-song-should-obviously-be-a-country-song, song.



Dolly Parton v. Jay Z | Jolene

10 Oct

I love this.

Drake | I Get Lonely Too

10 Oct

I loved it when TLC did it in 1999. And I love that Drake is covering it in 2010. When I listened to this for the first time I realized I knew all the lyrics but had no idea why. Google fixed that. TLC used to be my jaaam. Anyway, Drake basically lifts the entire song here but I still dig it. It’s like an homage to my youth.

RIP, Left Eye.

MTV Video Music Awards- Usher

13 Sep

While I’m not actually watching the VMA’s (new place = no cable yet) we can all thank the internet for at least allowing me to catch the highlights. AKA the performances. Making my way through it now.

Anyway. Usher killed it.

Cool & now it’s not letting me embed. So click here!

Sage Francis | Best of Times

7 May

Add him to the list of artists I’ve heard of and am just now getting around to checking out.

Sage Francis.

The dude is interesting.

His new album, Li(f)e, is out May 11th.

This one is a definite stand-out.

Give it a listen:

Theophilus London | Oops

4 May

Theophilus London’s mixtape, I Want You, is really REALLY good.

I especially like his cover of Tweet’s- Oops (Oh My) from back in the day.

Give it a listen. Then download the entire mixtape.

Eminem | Not Afraid

29 Apr

When Eminem is good, he’s really good.

I like it when he drops the weird accent, the too-bizarre subject matter, and gets real.

I’ve got high hopes for his upcoming album, Recovery, out June 22nd.

Eminem | Not Afraid

and to the fans/ I’ll never let u down again/ Im back

I promise to never go back on that promise

In fact/ Let’s be honest/ That last relapse CD was Ehh../

Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground

Relax/ I ain’t goin back to that now.
