Nicki dropped this record breaking video a couple days back for her first single off her second studio album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, whose release date recently got pushed back from V-Day until April, 3rd.  Although this video broke Vevo’s record for most views in first 24 hours with 4.8million, I can’t say all the feedback has been positive.  With more than 2x as many dislikes as likes on Youtube, this video gives Rebecca Black something to strive for.  The only thing this video really proved to me, was Nicki’s badunkadunk is 100% au naturalé.  Lastly, Nicki confirmed Guetta’s single “Turn Me On” will also be featured on her album.

Breezy Breezy Breezy, committing battery on this dirty electro-pop beat by The Underdogs.  Too soon?  Sorry RiRi, I love you more anyways.  The second single off Brown’s 5th studio album, Fortune, will likely receive the “We Found Love” treatment from the radio.

John Legend, the man who rarely does wrong, recruits Ludachristopher for his new single.  This is that baby making music.

P.S. I apologize for the mediocre quality, I’ll update with the mastered once it drops.

Nicki let’s the dog out of the cage on her newest single off her sophomore album, Roman Reloaded, set for a February 14th release.  Amidst switching lanes between her multiple alter ego’s, she practices what has become her signature strung out sound, recycling her “…ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuld” as she first quoted in Big Sean’s “A$$” Remix.  The album is already shaping up to be as good as the first with rumored features from Wayne, Mary J. Blige, Birdman, Ricky Martin, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears.

P.S. Nicki Minaj definitely takes the cake for dirtiest lines of 2011.  Despite that, will we see her performing alongside Madonna at the Superbowl next year?  Listen for a short line that might suggest just that.

Katy Perry has seen unprecedented success since the release of her second studio album, Teenage Dream, garnering 5 record breaking singles while she now aims for a sixth with Bobby Ray.  B.o.B. takes us off the blocks and caps off the end of the track with another short verse.  If I had to guess, I’d say this track hits Top 40 on the radio charts as well.
