Wish – Suga Daddy

Do you know how long I’ve been waiting for a new Wish album? Far too long, it seems. She finally unleashed Suga Daddy, the first single from Stripdown, earlier this week and it seems like she and Donny Roc are picking up right where Skool Gurl Diaries left off. It’s got a real old school vibe with elements of modern music fitting right in (I could do without the Auto-Tune, but that’s a personal preference). Hopefully now that this is out in the world, Stripdown won’t be too far behind.

Lydia Caesar – #7DaysOfCaesar (Day 7)

After 6 days of anticipation, Lydia finally gives us the first single from Caesar, the Grand Staff-produced Lottery. (I just wish I wasn’t at the day job so I could hear it). March 15 is the date!

Bruno Mars – California Gurls (cover)

I’ve been on the meanest Bruno Mars kick lately, so I was pretty intrigued when I saw this hit SingersRoom.com. With respect to Katy Perry‘s original version, this cover is definitely more my cup of tea. I only wish the folks at BBC Radio had the cameras rolling so we could get the full feel of this song, but what can ya do?

Promise – The Pinky Project

Promise - The Pinky Project

I’ve been waiting for more music from Promise Ramsey since iPromise was released…she dropped this new EP about a week ago, and while I haven’t gotten to listen to it until today, I am definitely digging it. There’s a lot of variety going on here, from Wish-esque old/new school hybrids, to neo-soul vibes, to slow jams. If you like all-around good R&B, I “promise” (pardon the pun) you’ll enjoy The Pinky Project.

Anthony Lofton – Silent Night

Keeping with the holiday-ness is a cover of Silent Night by saxophonist supreme, Anthony Lofton. Anthony rocked this out at a Christmas performance at his church this past weekend, for a production called “The Amazing Super Fantastic Christmas Surprise” (such a cool name). This may be one of the coolest renditions of Silent Night I’ve ever heard, and I’ve heard wayyy too many. If you want to hear more of Anthony’s stuff, check out his debut album, Sensational, at the link below.

And on an unrelated note, we just learned that Wish, who we’ve covered here a couple times, just signed a record deal with Jive Records! Congrats Wish!!!
