As Tim 'yes I'm as old as your dad' Westwood would say 'You need these in your life' - Now that didn't sound stupid did it?

Christina Milian returns for her third album on the back of being dumped by the white chick fiend Nick Cannon. The lead single Say I features the bars of Young Jeezy and is produced by Cool and Dre. This upbeat number sounds very similar to one of their biggest hits Hate It Or Love It and should be another hit for Christina. Another track from her doing the rounds currently is the much slower paced Whose Gonna Ride.

The Black Eyed Peas had seemingly left their b-boy routes behind in the pursuit for pop domination but the track Like That is not to be ignored. Featuring a whole heap of talent from Cee-Lo, John Legend, Talib Kweli and Q-Tip and the boys this is much more in the vain of their earlier Joints and Jams days.

Will I Am has been busy and as well as producing and featuring on the Pussycat Dolls single Beep he’s produced this nice smooth head nodder for newcomer Sergio Mendes called The Frog, featuring Q-Tip.

Scenesters, Hipsters and everyone else who follows what’s ‘cool’ or ‘chic has been praising the new track from collaborating duo DangerMouse and Cee-Lo. Under the Alias Gnarls Barkely the track Crazy has a heavy, driving bass line and works well with the eccentric vocals of Cee-Lo. A great track but perhaps has been elevated higher than what it is. Currently the backdrop for the TV adverts to the annoying Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show.

While Kanye West’s releases one of the main highlights of his album in Touch The Sky, the guest on that track Lupe Fiasco comes crashing into your radar with the tracks Kick, Push and Tilted. One to watch.
Mark Ronson makes Radiohead sound upbeat and interesting on Just, turning it into an eclectic neo soul number as part of a BBE release of remixed Radiohead songs.
