Dam-Funk – Mirrors

Can you spot the record producer in this picture?…

Melanie Fiona – It Kills Me

Has now spent more than half a year on the Billboard hip-hop/R&B charts, so obviously we reviewed These New Puritans first… [Video][Website] [6.12] Al Shipley: This is the kind of slow burning R&B radio megahit that usually gets to me sooner or later, but after months of ubiquity its charms have still kind of eluded […]
