    Oh hell yea! Shwayze’s summer smash “Love Letter” got a party-infusion from the Rock-it! Scientists and it’s stunningly amazing. It’s fun, it’s poppy, and gives the song an extra punch. Still summery. Nice work Rock-its!

    This is INCREDIBLE for the summer. Perfection. Best collab of the summer (thus far!). It has a little Michael Franti & Spearhead in it. So chill, so catchy, so everything I’m looking for in a summer song. Get a free download of the song by liking Shwayze’s Facebook page above.

    This is super late to post, but I wanted to put it out there in case anyone was wondering if they should go see Usher on his OMG Tour. The answer is: HELL YES!

    Usher was incredible – he really knows how to pump up a crowd, including having one-on-one sexytime on-stage with one lucky lady, amazing theatrics, shirtless action… He played all his hits, and I was beyond excited to hear those four words “Peace up, A-Town down” leave his lips. I actually took my mom to this concert for Mother’s Day, and one thing we noticed was how diverse the crowd was – not just in race or ethnicity, but in age. There were 4-year-old children there with their parents, teens, college students, 60-year-old couples, high people, drunk people, hot messes, conservative people.. the list goes on. It’s amazing to me how large Usher’s appeal is and how his music speaks to so many people. With all the people in the arena, everyone seemed to be dancing together and just enjoying each other’s company. It was really a fun experience. Plus, Usher was so hawt – his vocals were insanely on point, his dance moves were shocking, and he also did an MJ tribute, skits with his dancers, flew over the crowd.. I don’t want to give too much away, but he really was an incredible performer.

    As far as Akon goes, I was really expecting the worst. Luckily, I was proven wrong. Though I’m 99.9% positive his mic was turned off and he didn’t sing at all…He put on a really good show! He was super high-energy, he played the bongos, had an awesome set, and was just so much FUN to be around! He showed off his roots, he was funny, he stripped a little – really a great performer. Now I understand his draw – his songs are fun and danceable, and people are just expecting a good time out of him, which is exactly what he gave us.

    The Cataracs – I’m a big fan of them. However, I was a bit confused by their set. I mean, their DJ set no doubt was incredible. I was eating that shet UP. But the crowd was not! It was almost like no one cared that much and they went on too early or something – the arena was barely filled, and the seats that were filled were not paying attention. I feel like the Cataracs may not have been ready for an arena tour, even though upon hearing that they were on the OMG Tour I was super pumped. I don’t know, it was kind of weird, and I feel like people didn’t understand what was going on. They didn’t really move much either.

    To sum things up – if you’re looking for a fun concert, this OMG Tour is a must-see. Especially if Dev is an opening act as well (she joined the tour too!)

    This song came out sooo long ago and the video JUST came out. However, that only helped it succeed – raking in over 1 million views in its first week. Holy guacamole. I’ve loved this song since it came out, but I can’t say the same about the video. It’s kind of DISGUSTING. You’ll like this if you are a guy or a lesbian. Otherwise, here’s your disclaimer: Jillboard does not support whore-house music videos with excessive, dirty touching. There’s a difference between innuendo/suggestive material and straight up sucio. I really expected better things for this video. The song’s still awesome though. AWESOME.

    In The Dark (Prod By The Cataracs)” (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

    Wowzahhh! Got a heads-up email about this one and it’s soooo good. Definitely one of the best Dev/Cataracs collabs to date. Imagine “Stereo Love” mixed with Dev’s “Booty Bounce”. Yea, that good. Such an amazing track by The Cataracs. I can now add this to my list of favorite songs called “In The Dark”. The list is 2 songs long. The other is by JoJo.
