I remember way back when Will and Jada got together and started making babies and saying to myself…”those are going to be some good looking super talented kids.” Look at them now. Jaydan’s (12 years old) starred in 3 big blockbuster movies (The Pursuit of Happyness, The Day the Earth Stood Still, and The Karate Kid. Now his little sister Willow (9 years old) is next up to bat who actually starred in some films herself (I Am Legend, Kit Kittredge: An American Girl and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa) but the films aren’t oddly enough isn’t what’s getting young Willow all the buzz these days…it’s her singing career!
When I first heard she had a song out I honestly didn’t take it serious at all. I mean come on! She’s 9 for God sake and signing. So I couldn’t even picture something like Lil Bow Wow did when he first came on to the scene with his ghost writers. So I gave her the benefit of the doubt and took a listen to her new single “Whip My Hair” and I was very shocked. This shit bangs! The track has a dope beat, very catchy hook as simple as it is, and the little girl can sing! What really impressed me even more is the interview she did with Ryan Seacrest down below. She looks just like Jada! Talks and carries herself like Jada! It’s a trip. She’s like a mini me lol And very mature, down to earth, mature, and wholesome. Oh and did I mention Jay- Z singed her to his new label Roc Nation?! Shot out to Azaleah aka Puertozillian! lol

Happy Monday Soulified! How was everyone’s weekend? Got the new Trey Songz album last Friday and have been bumping it all weekend.
I gotta admit the album is a lot better then I thought it was going to be. Trey has definitely matured as an artist because the whole album is very well rounded. And for my dude’s that are looking for a good “beating/ panty droppin” album this is the one! lol I know I’ll def be putting this album on next time I knock some boots. lol Big up’s to Trey for this one. I appreciate it family. hahaha The track list is a little different from the one I posted a few weeks ago in the album sneak peek where all of you can still download and listen to the 6 tracks off the album highlighted below by clicking. The album’s very similar to Dwele’s W.ants W.orld W.omen album in the sense that he broke the album into 3 separate part with the parts relating to the album title’s 3 words. Though Trey’s words aren’t in the right order in his track list as they are in the album title I’m not mad at him for trying and doing it the way he did because it makes the album that much more interesting. Make sure to buy the album tomorrow (Sep 14th) when it drops.
The video for the new single off the album “Can’t Be Friends” and I’m feeling this video big time. It’s a simple concept but it gets the point and lyrics across. More artist should focus on feeling and simplicity when doing video’s because all the crazy graphics and special effects and shit aren’t needed. The song is dope as well cause I feel every word he’s singing on a personal level as I’m sure a lot of you are as well. This cut defiantly leads me to believe that his album will truly be the most personal to date.
“Can’t Be Friends”
01. Here We Go Again Intro
02. Love Faces
05. Bottoms Up (Feat. Nicki Minaj)
06. Pain Interlude
07. Can’t Be Friends

Did I speak to soon?! A Trey Songz Drake colabo that will be on Trey’s new album Passion, Pain, Pleasure? Hmmmmm I’m not sure if this is true because this single isn’t on the track list I got for the album but who knows. Hell who care’s cause I got it and now yall got it!
Though this isn’t a “Successful” worthy track by the duo it is a nice track none the less with dope production my Drake’s right hand man 40. Let me know what you think.[audio:Trey_Songz-The_Usual_(Feat_Drake).mp3]

Yeah you heard it right! I am featuring a Justin Bieber song! Hahahahah Why you ask? Press play down below and I guarantee you it will be followed by a click on the download link I also provided. This track it dope!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m not even mad at Justin for this one.
There was a ton of news about this remix prior to it coming out just because of the unusual feature’s. I mean Kanye West and Wu Tang Clans Raekwon the Chef with teen pop heart throb Justin Bieber?! I would of never thought in a million years but I can safety say that Justin Beiber “ain’t nothing to fuck with!” on this track. lol The beat immediately start out Wu Tang style and Raekwon come out of no where with that gutter east coast vibe the Justin come’s out of know where himself and his vocals are on point with catchy lyrics to go with it. Kanye def made a masterpiece with this one.
All the Justin Bieber hater’s give prop’s to the kid. His talent can’t be denied. Check out his youtube page with his material before he became famous and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Looking at that page I can understand why he was signed straight from his youtube page with the covers he did and all the damn instruments he can play. I’m not going to even front…I’ve caught myself a few time’s singing “Baby Baby” in my head when the shit come on the radio hahahahaha Let me know what you think about the track.[audio: justinbieberkanyewestraekwon-runawaylovermx-cln.mp3]

Brandy’s brother oppps! I mean Ray-J has a new single out and it’s actually pretty decent for Ray-J. To those that have seen his show with his sister on VHS you’ll recognize this track from the studio session’s he had with producer Darkchild. Ludacris’s feature is not what I expected it to be because he always comes correct on features. But who knows maybe Ray-J had a budget for the feature and Luda gave him his money’s worth. lol Ray-J’s new album “Raydiation 2” is schedule for release sometime this summer but it more then likely got pushed back.[audio: rayjludacris-celebration-dty.mp3.mp3]

Awwwwyuuuup! Halfy Monday Soulifiedian’s! Thought I’d give you a little taste test of what’s to come on Trey’s fourth studio album, Passion, Pain & Pleasure, which will be released on September 14, 2010. Trey has stated that the album will be his most personal to date. The first single off the album is Bottoms Up as some of you may have heard it on the radio and if not that’s because it’s a wack single and the radio station in your area feels the same way. The beat and the concept around the song just doesn’t do it for me. Nicki Minaj doesn’t even do the song any justice although her ass does in the video lol But hell that’s expected.
“Bottoms Up” feat Nicki Minaj
I’m feeling this single/video big time. It’s a simple concept but it gets the point and lyrics across. More artist should focus on feeling and simplicity when doing video’s because all the crazy graphics and special effects and shit aren’t needed. The song is dope as well cause I feel every word he’s singing on a personal level as I’m sure a lot of you are as well.

Can’t Be Friends (leaked video)
Taking a look down below I’m not feeling the album art work at all. That ole rainy window technique is old as fuck. He’s literally behind plexi glass while an assistant sprays water on in it. And what the hell does it have to do with the title of his album Passion, Pain, & Pleasure? Does he have a passion for rain and it pains him that he can’t go out in it and pleasure himself? Come on Trey! lol With 17 tracks on the album Trey is def giving his fan’s they’re moneys worth if the other song’s are up to par. Only one feature on the album which is a shocker to me because I thought for sure Drake would show up some where on his album though Trey didn’t show up on his new one. Things that make you go Hmmmmm? I’m blessing yall with another single off the album called “Love Face” which is pretty self explanatory. It’s a nice, slow, baby making cut to add to “Getting Drawls” mix. lol

Let me know what you think about the singles and everything else down below.
This one goes out to all the gold digging shallow women out there. You know who you are. And if you don’t know who you are your the one who’s hating the shit outta this song now.
Big ups to Cee Lo for making this track. Couldn’t have sang it better myself! “Oppps she’s a gold digga, just thought you should know nigga.” hahah classick lyrics right there. I mean is there really a better saying that so simple yet gets a ton across then “Fuck You?” lol This will be another official track off his new up and coming album “The Lady Killer” dropping sometime this year in December.
The video for this track is equally as dope. It’s always a breath of fresh air when an artist doesn’t make a video we’ve all ready seen before. I love the crisp classic feel this one has and how Cee Lo tell’s his “Fuck You” story from a child and uses the toy car’s as a metaphor for what he has vs what she want’s as the gold digger at that age. lol Classick! Let me know what yall think…

Could this track be another possible leak off Dre’s highly anticipated Detox album to go with the other leaked song featuring Jay Z? Hmmmmm well if you ask me I’d tell you that I don’t really give a damn. Detox was suppose to drop in 2004 and were now 6 years into 2010. I don’t know about you but I was over the album in 2005 with as long as he’s taking to make it and now claims it will drop sometime this year lol. Dre had this to say on his site about the leaked tracks…
No shit Dre! The songs are a 2 minutes long with one verse! And am I the only one thinking that Bishop Lamont, Dre’s ex artist wrote his lyrics on this track?! I swear if Dre’s name wasn’t on the title I would of thought it was a Bishop Lamont track because he is dead on with the way he spits and Dre doesn’t spit like this at all! I wouldn’t be surprised if Dre went through the hundreds of songs Bishop recorded while under Aftermath that Dre technically owns and jacked the bars from him. I’m going to have to get a hold of Bishop Lamont and ask him personally. lol But yeah I’m feeling the beat, sample, hook, and Bishop Lamonts lyrics on this one none the less. lol[audio: drdre-turnmeon-dty.mp3]

Got some new Kid Cudi heat for yall fresh off his new up coming album Man On The Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager dropping October 26, 2010. Though it’s no “Day and Night” which is pretty much the only quality single in my mind that he’s ever put out it’s decent none the less with a dope beat, catchy hook, and good feature with Kanye West.[audio:kidcudikanyewest-wylincuzimyoung-dty.mp3]

Soulified! What it do?! One of my top 3 MC’s Andre 3000 has finally dropped a single for all of our listening pleasure’s and it is one hell of a soulful banger! I’ve had this track for a hot sec and was going to hold off releasing it because Andre’s mixtape that it was suppose be on entitled “Limelight Exlcusives” was scheduled to drop yesterday (August 12th) which it didn’t. I can’t find any word on why it’s been postponed or when it’s going to drop so just gonna go ahead and bless you with the track till I get my hands on it for yall.
The single is ” I Do” And though its a big time tease at only 2:00 long its plenty to make you put this bitch on repeat. Trust! Dre’s lyrics are nuts as usual with a little harmonizing and a dope beat sampled from Lenny Williams “Cause I Love You” track.

Enjoy the freshness and make sure to leave ya boy some comments down below.
I’ve had this single in my “exclusives vault” for a hot sec and it is by far one of my favorite singles. Lost count on how many times I’ve listened to this track and for the longest I thought it was a Drake single with a random singer friend of his. Come to find out it’s an official Dirty Money track off they’re new up and coming album “Last Train To Paris.”
Puff’s singing is pretty damn decent on this track along with Drake’s harmonizing and bar’s towards the end. Nice beat. Love love love the hook. Super catchy, original, and I can relate to a time in my life where I loved someone more then I loved myself *tear drops* lol Dirty Money’s album is expected to drop in the fall 2010 sometime. Till then enjoy this single before the radio gets a hold of it cause I can guarantee this will be a track that they play out.[audio: diddydirtymoneydrake-hurt.mp3]

Now I’ll be the very first to admit that Nicki Minaj’s voice, prior songs, weird movements, fashion sense, and facial expressions bug the shit out of me. But I am not even mad at her for this track and the video to go with it.
I first heard this track on Power 106’s “New at 2” segment and was immediately hooked. The sample is dope. The beat knock’s. The hook is catchy. Her singing voice is on point (even with the auto tune). And the lyrics have a dope LL Cool J vibe with a female twist. Then MTV puts out the actual video as well as the behind the scenes for it and that was the icing on the cake! For those that don’t know I’m a second degree black belt so the Geisha karate themed theme of the video had me hooked from the start. And to top it off she has an actual martial artist and great actor; Michael Jai White as her leading man. The story line is nice with her being one of his students and falling for him as well.
My 3 complaints about this video:
- Kill like 90% of all the flowy artsy silk crap and have an actual Japanese style karate Dojo as well as the outside scenery.
- The karate choreography is boo boo.
- And for all of us fellow’s she covered ALL of her booty through out the whole damn video! lol
Behind the Scenes
I’m going to go ahead and hook all my people up with a few options for this track to download. 3 remixed versions of the track. And Rick Ross’s is by far the best out of the 3. Sean Pauls has to be the worst. He kills the whole track shouting all outta place like Dj Clue. The original track. And the instrumental for those that want to sing/ spit over it or just like the beat and not Nicki Minaj lol

Eric Benet is officially back! And boy let me tell yall Eric Benet sings the shit outta this song! This is the definition of falsetto Dream! I honestly didn’t know Eric had vocals like this but then again if I were to mess up on Halle Berry like he did I’d probably gain this range myself. lol She’s definitely gotta be the inspiration for this track. Hell the title says it all.
Eric Benet- Sometimes I Cry
Here’s a behind the scene’s video of the single as well as Eric speaking on the inspiration for the whole album “Lost In Time” coming out this September.
Though I’ll never understand how being a nymphomaniac married to Halle Berry is a problem I fully understand this track and am feeling it and his pain. lol Enjoy yall.[audio:ericbenet-sometimesicry-cln.mp3]
