Mariah Carey

A little late on #5, I know. Better late than never though right? This week we’ve got new music from Kid Cudi, Arctic Monkeys, Dizzee Rascal and Mariah Carey. Don’t hesitate.

We probably should’ve post this yesterday but naturally we got a little caught up with other things. Kid Cudi showed up to play his new single, ‘Pursuit of Happiness’  on the Late Show with David Letterman along with Ratatat. Minus the “driving drunk, I’m doing my thing” line that graces the album version, the performance came complete with three back-up vocalists, a string section and guitar solo from Mike Stroud. It’s not my favourite song from Cudder’s debut album (that would be ‘Heart Of A Lion’) but we’ll happily raise a glass just the same.

Man on the Moon

So, the tracklist for Kid Cudi’s album, ‘Man On The Moon: The End of Day’, got dropped today and there’s a couple of interesting things happening on it. First is the guests he has on the album which include MGMT, Chip Tha Rapper and RATATAT, who have also produced a track for Queen’s rapper, Despot. The tracks themselves are themed in five different acts, Green Day styles. Do we have (to quote R-Kelly) a hip-hopera on our hands? Well, thank god for Wikipedia, who tell us that such a thing actually exists. According to the post, Public Enemy’s ‘He Got Game’ qualifies as a rap opera as does Coolio’s ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’. Also mentioned is ‘High Price’, a song from Ciara’s latest album, which makes me think that whoever wrote the entry just had their iPod on shuffle. Whatever. It can’t be as bad as this.

Keri Hilson Complex Mag

The new cover of Complex magazine featuring Keri Hilson caught my eye and not for the reason you may be thinking. I’ve always been a fan of French artist So-Me since seeing his videos for Kanye West and T-Pain’s ‘The Good Life’, D.A.N.C.E by Justice and more recently Kid Cudi’s ‘Day N Nite’. The artist/designer was recruited to work on the Style & Design issue of Complex in between working on other video’s and his own clothing line Cool Cats.

Okay people, here we go.

As mentioned before, guests include MGMT, Drake, Kid Cudi, Mr. Hudson and Nas. Let’s just hope that ‘Empire State of Mind’ is as good as ‘Success’.
