Top of the World (Single)
Nicki is getting ready to release a new album, but like many artists these days to keep on top of the heap, sheâ€™s released this sneak peak. In line with the woman-power themed songs of BeyoncĂ©, this is an anthem for women, to women, and maybe preaching to the chorus.

Body and Soul (Single)
Our fascination with artists who can no longer contribute to the world due to early demise might be fueling this duo release, but thatâ€™s not to say it is totally without merit. Thanks to Tony and his open support, Amy Winehouseâ€™s amazing voice and personality is heard at perhaps an artistic peak, but we can only guess.

Itâ€™s On (Remixes)
Not the famous photographer of the same name, but this Jasper James is a dynamic up-out-and-coming rapper, DJ and electronica artist worthy of more than just a NBA or KIA theme song. Itâ€™s nothing new to the well-endowed dance scene, but for sheer gumption and uppity-ness, weâ€™re impressed.
Best Cut: Vocal Remix
Location: Midnight Sound Factory
RuPaul, well, of course weâ€™re going to listen to this at least once, but unfortunately this release will probably stay within the LGBTQ community as another disco-dripping pop release from our drag icon.
