New Songs: Wyclef, Brandy & Lil Mama

Published: Saturday 14th Jul 2007 by Sam

Wyclef – Sweetest Girl (ft. Akon, Lil’ Wayne & Nia)
Following the success of his work with artists such as T.I. and Shakira, Wyclef has re-focused his creative energy onto his own solo material. This new track, ‘Sweetest Girl’, sees the former Fugees star team up with Akon, Lil’ Wayne and newcomer Nia. I didn’t anticipate liking the song, however after listening to it, I was pleasantly surprised. With it’s laid back feel and catchy hook, the song is ideal for summer. Be on the lookout for Wyclef’s as-yet-untitled new album, which will feature ‘Sweetest Girl’, around September.

Brandy – Sweet Nothings
With all the drama surrounding Brandy at present, it’s great to hear some new material from the former ‘Moesha’ star. ‘Sweet Nothings’ was apparently recorded in the early part of last year and was produced by a European producer – perhaps explaining the ‘eurocentric’ vibe the song has to it. Brandy’s trademark harmonies are also a feature on the song. Upon first listen the track didn’t really captivate me, however it’s definitely a grower and I found myself enjoying it the more I listened. It should be noted that the song will not be featured on the ‘Afrodisiac’ singer’s new CD.

Lil’ Mama – Make It Hot

17 year old Lil’ Mama got me -as well as everyone else – with her inescapable debut hit ‘Lip Gloss’ and the New Yorker is set to continue her rise with ‘Make It Hot. Though not as instantly likable as ‘Lip Gloss’, the production on the track is on-point, as is Lil Mama’s flow. Aside from the slighly annoying singing parts, the track is great. Her album ‘The Voice of The Young People’ is set to hit stores later this year.

    I don’t like brandy’s song, she used to do better!!! I hope it’s not on her next album

    Brandy! WOW! This is a well crafted track. Although she was a mega-star for a number of years, I really think people forget just how special her voice is. Take it from a singer, and I have personally had conversations with people about her; she simply is one of the most technically sound singers of the last 20 years. I mean the way she harmonizes with her own voice; amazing. There are allot of females that could really use some lessons from her.

    She is one of the only artist that has never had a BAD album!

    GOOD JOB! TIGHT SONG!

    Ugh, Brandy, I wish you would have talked to me. That is a mess.

    I might have gotten caught up with all the new acts around, but what I will say is that BRANDY will always be Brandy. No matter how many Beyonces, Ciaras and Kiesha Coles there are in the world. You have to admit that the song is colorful with a unique beat and harmonic lyrics. I love it and wish she would hurry up with a new album damn. Now Monica got one up on her and that last album wasn’t bad at all.

    Continue to support music and entertainment stop downloading that mess for free.

    Brandy is a legend. Do you hear me.
    no matter what she puts out, the consistency in her craft is always there. she will always be that “next level b****”. Even rihanna and kelly rowland list her as their favorite singer.

    not to mention the track hasn’t even been mixed, as elements are missing from the song
