Here comes the latest edition of our Weekly Set-series. Last week has been much influenced by the imminent comeback of the eclectic N*E*R*D*-collective. Accordingly their new single “Hot N’ Fun” featuring renowned singer Nelly Furtado garnered plenty of interest among our readers last weekend. Due to its catchiness It is more than likely that this upbeat dance record will catapult the anticipation of their upcoming album Nothing into impressive heights. Another comeback on the stage has caused some ruckus within the musical landscape. British singer M.I.A. has reemerged on the digital streams with her new Diplo-produced single “Born Again”. It takes only one listen to notice that no formula has been switched as the track offered an impressive upbeat production complimented with her trademark quirky vocals. Mr Hudson came back with his unreleased version of Jay-Z radio favorite “Young Forever”. Even if it did not make the final cut of his album Straight No Chaser this powerful version deserves a listen due to the timeless instrumental and Mr Hudson’s impeccable vocal skills. Clearly being one of the most promising newcomers that have come up in the past few years, B.o.B. deserves yet another spot on our Weekly Set with his T.I.-assisted “Not Lost”. Although the song won’t appear on his debut The Adventures of Bobby Ray due to sample clearance issues, the cut proves to be a worthy addition to his already impressive catalogue. Star Trak-signee Fam-Lay released his version N*E*R*D*’s 2008 song “Soldier”. The talented MC replaced Lil’ Wayne’s verse with some entertaining lines of his repertoire.
Further noteworthy efforts were turned in by Gym Class Heroe Travis McCoy and aspiring recording artist Rich Hil that have been receiving respectively good feedback for their new music. Indie rock band Band Of Horse, London duo monarchy as well as future R&B-icon Bruno Mars have also provided admirable records respectively that indicated more quality tunes stemming from their respective repertoires in the near future. Stay tuned.
