Let's Be Real Now
R. Kelly Feat. Tinashe
R. Kelly's 13th studio album The Buffet is out at the end of the week, but the legendary songwriter has decided to release one more record before the LP impacts. "Lets Be Real Now" unites him with Tinashe, and once again proves that Kells has the versatility to keep up with the current wave of R&B artists. The duet is reminiscent of Drake and Rihanna's "Take Care," incorporating some electronic elements and some driving timpanis.
R. Kelly's new studio album The Buffet is on its way this month, and to prime us for the upcoming LP, the Chicago singer has decided to share a standalone holiday track today. The versatile songwriter that he is, Kells sounds right at home on some Xmas funk, and he manages to keep it family-friendly throughout.

Make It Rain (Remix)
Fat Joe Feat. Lil Wayne, R. Kelly, Birdman, Rick Ross, T.I. & Ace Mac
Scott Storch's name is back in the headlines again, but not for the best reasons. The super-producer has had a rough few years, but while the recent news that he's declared bankruptcy makes it seem as though he's still struggling, Storch's career is on a steady up-turn.According to the legendary beatmaker, he's not only clean, but he's got collaborations with Rick Ross and Chris Brown on the way. The thought of a Storch renaissance had us revisiting some of his classic productions, and we landed on Fat Joe's stacked "Make It Rain" remix for this week's throwback track.
