Jessie and the Toy Boys
â€śLetâ€™s Get Naughtyâ€ť
What the F*$#k? Now that I have your attention, you know what Jessie craves. Another multiple remix from an artist still without a debut album (slated for release this Summer). By now youâ€™ve heard all the drum samples in the world, so what does Jessie bring to the table? Only her desperation to shock the by-now-unshockable audience. Canâ€™t play it on radio and so weâ€™ll see if she can deliver on the debut. Itâ€™s a cruel, cruel nasty world.

Location: One time spin on the dance floor, Sound Factory.

Why did we fall in love with Menzel when she first appeared on Glee as the missing mother? Seems weâ€™d fallen for her on Broadway in Rent and Wicked already! This is a live album perfect for the Menâ€™s Chorus after show party â€“ sheâ€™s witty, disarming, one ultimate entertainer and shares her crystalline soprano with spot on perfection.

â€śIs Anybody Out There?â€ť
When I see Nelly Furtado on anything, I stop and listen, so Kâ€™Naan had an advantage here. Doesnâ€™t mean Iâ€™m not aware of the celebrity-artist promo tags, but once this CD was spinning, it was clear this is a classy guy with a classy sound that for some reason just gets to the heart of the matter. Loved it.

â€śOne Million Piecesâ€ť
I didnâ€™t want to like this one. I mean, Pia Zadoraâ€™s kid, I get it, and pink artwork, and cute too. But this is a dang likable little pop jewel, co-written and produced by ToneDef and Kady, and there is something to be said for lineage after all. Refreshing, tight, hooky melodies over seamless sugar will entice you to have that dangerous second and third bite.

Location: OMG, w/BFF, totally!
