New Music Tuesday - July 3, 2012

NewfloNewbensonNewbrown

New albums by angular pop quintet Maximo Park and Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy are only the beginning of this week’s New Music Tuesday. There’s also a 50-year live retrospective by music legend Quincy Jones, and of course, much more on the New Music Tuesday playlist, in our New Releases and in our playlist notes below.

Playlist Notes

  • Flo Rida - Wild Ones
    The hit-making rapper from the Sunshine State returns with his fourth album since 2008. Wild Ones includes guests Jennifer Lopez, Lil Wayne, and LMFAO’s RedFoo, so expect a couple more number-ones from the gruff-voiced rapper.

  • Doug Benson - Smug Life
    Doug Benson’s fifth comedy album finds the irreverent comedian as silly as ever, riffing on pot, movies, and other pop cultural detritus with a smirk.

  • Chris Brown - Fortune
    Brown’s fifth album features collaborations with Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, and Nas, among others. It features dubstep production alongside his typical R&B leanings.

  • Wisin & Yandel - Líderes
    The reggaeton duo’s ninth album is another party, and guests include Chris Brown, T-Pain, and, on first single “Follow The Leader,” Jennifer Lopez. Looks like you might be on the guest list, too.
