Hidden Beach Recordings, the label that introduced the world to soul singing diva Jill Scott, announced the upcoming release of remixed work of Scott’s songs in a compilation. Titled “CRATES: REMIX FUNDAMENTALS VOLUME 1 (Spring Summer Feeling),” the album will boast reworkings of Scott’s most loved tunes by some of the world’s hottest deejays in house and hip-hop genres. Kicking off the album is “Spring Summer Feeling – The Ron Trent Mix,” a sultry soulful house music re-tooling of Jill Scott’s homage to Minnie Ripperton by iconic DJ Ron Trent. The aptly titled song’s remix blends the beautiful sounds of spring dance and summer grooves that will be a party starter for house music heads and set the mood for the sexiest exclusives lounges.
Get a listen of ”Spring Summer Feeling – The Ron Trent Mix” below. “VOLUME 1″ will be released on June 26 in stores everywhere.
Atlanta R&B crooner Ray Lavender takes fans in the music studio where his hot new single “We Love” was created. Hoping to capitalize from the popularity he gained as a reality-TV on the TV One hit dating show “The Ultimate Merger,” dropped “We Love” a suave ballad that differs from his usual misogynistic recordings.
Check out the video below where Lavendar expresses to his production team about the “Michael Jackson flow” that he wants to accomplish on the single that sounds like a winner.
Get a listen of the song in its entirety below. Could this single take over the radio? Let us know.
Kelly Rowland and her record label team finally got the memo. Continuing the meteoric success of her 2011 long-running #1 “Motivation” with hip-hop hitmaker Lil’ Wayne, Ms. Rowland drops “Ice,” the first single from her forthcoming album. ”Ice” showcases the starlet’s sultriness and sex appeal, as did “Motivation,” as she coos about how she wants her lover to feel like ice against her.
The song may be titled “Ice,” but this song should undoubtedly burn up the charts the way “Motivation” did throughout the summer of 2011. We hope she sticks to this sexy R&B direction; though she fared well with techno-pop tracks.
Hurry up and press play to get your deserved music fix.
The blazing tune was written by veteran songwriter Sean Garrett.
Fourteen year-old singing starlet Rachel Crow became a star in the United States earlier this year as one of the front-running contestants on the TV singing competition “X Factor.” Blowing the judges and the American TV audience with performances originally sung by Etta James, Whitney Houston, Duffy and Beyonce earned Crow a top-five finish in the singing competition’s first season.
Since her stint on “X Factor,” Crow made several TV appearances on talk shows and on the Disney channel. Crow dropped her self-titled EP in late June which features the first single “Mean Girls.” The empowering anti-bullying anthem received a video treatment where young teens share their victimizing stories in the opening.

While female fans scream for the current chart-topping R&B heartthrobs Usher, Chris Brown and Trey Songz, the fact that 25 year-old crooner Mario was a R&B leading man may be easily forgotten. After acclaiming top of the R&B and pop charts with singles “Just A Friend” “Let Me Love You” and “Break Up,” the Baltimore native is looking to reclaim the charts’ pinnacles with his upcoming album Restoration. The album’s first single “The Walls” did not make a huge splash on the radio, but hopefully this new cut “Recovery” will. It’s pure R&B with a sound similar to R&B veteran Joe, and it should be embraced by radio.
Check out the hot new tune that I’m definitely feeling below.
