The Bling Thing

Posted by in Music, Reviews

Lots of new R&B/ Hip-Hop songs coming out these days. Here’s how a few that I heard faired:

Pon De Replay by Rihanna is pretty good. She’s new so her style is little different from others. Let’s see if she manages to retain her style. 7/10

Bananza (Belly Dancer) by Akon is good and remarkably different from his earlier hit, “Lonely”. Variety is almost non-existent these days. 6.5/10

Touch by Amerie is okay, at best. The video’s great and Amerie is hot but with lyrics like “Don’t be afraid to touch, I know you think I’m a good girl, don’t you think a girl like me can be (touched)”, how could the song be. 4.5/10

Represent Me by Ciara is good given that it is just for the DVD. It’s a little flat but still good. 5.5/10

We Be Burnin by Sean Paul is as irritating as any other song of his. Of course, no song can suck as much as “Gimme The Light” so it’s not that bad. 3.5/10

N Dey Say by Nelly is a good song coming from him after a long time. I like it. 7/10

Appreciate by LaToya London f/ Black Thought is above average. Lets see what the American Idol reject is able to achieve.6.5/10
