Ciara – Like A Boy (Remix) (ft. Trey Songz)
I’m really liking this remix. Ciara’s vocals are basically the same as the original version, however Trey Songz raps and sings about the song’s topic from a male perspective. I’ve always felt ‘Like A Boy’ was one of the better tracks on Ciara’s ‘Evolution’ album. I’m not sure if this is an official remix, either way Trey Songz is really getting himself out there in preparation for his own upcoming album ‘Trey Day’ – due May 8th.

Fabolous – First Time (ft. Rihanna)
This one has been floating around the net for a while; it’s yet another Fabolous collaboration (he should just put out a collaboration album already). ‘First Time’ is scheduled to be one the singles from his new album ‘From Nothing To Something’ (due June 12th). I’m kinda feeling the track; the beat knocks and Rihanna does her thing singing the hook.

Usher – Oooh Shawty (ft. Sean Paul of Youngbloodz) (Remix)
As Usher preps his new album ‘The Masterpiece’ (due for a November release), this remix version of one of the earlier leaked tracks has hit the net. Produced by DJ Unique, the ‘Oooh Shawty’ remix is hot; I’m actually liking it a lot more than the original. The beat is on-point, it’s definitely a banger. I’m anxious to see what Usher comes with on this new album, as I don’t think he can top ‘Confessions’ in sales or quality. You never know, though.
