I Am Not A Human Being II - Lil Wayne
By Reese Pena | April 09,2013
If you haven't heard by now, Lil Wayne is not a human being. And with heavy metal edged "Hello" and Bon Jovi-esque "Hot Revolver" on his recently released album, some may be left wondering if he's still a rapper. Heavily themed in sex and violence, this album doesn't stray too far from part I. Unfortunately for fans, some of the best tracks on the album are those that are already on air waves. With "I Am Not A Human Being II", Wayne continues to experiment and push the limits of the rap genre, whether we like it or not.

The 20/20 Experience - Justin Timberlake

With "Suit & Tie" as the first release from The 20/20 Experience, it's easy to assume that this album is full of sounds largely reminiscent of the Rat Pack, Wrong! Justin hints at old school styles while still tapping into a formula similar to that of his sophomore album, FutureSex/LoveSound. Rhythmic tracks like "Tunnel Vision" and "Let the Groove Get In" give off a more mature feel than its predecessors "My Love" and "Sexy Back". The 20/20 Experience definitely reveals Timberlake's growth as an artist. "Blue Ocean Floor" closes the album with hushed/muted music and subtle melody, definitely a favorite, it leaves you with chills. This album is a win. I can't wait for the sequel, set to be released later this year
- Love Songs Destiny’s Child
Love Songs Destiny’s Child

After eight years Destiny free, we’re long over do for an album from the chart toping trio. In Love Songs, Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle compile their best love songs since Destiny’s Child’s skyrocket to fame. The tracks include “Cater 2 U” from Destiny Fulfilled, “Second Nature” from Destiny’s Child and “Brown Eyes” from Survivor. The gem of the entire album is the brand new song from the girls, “Nuclear”. This up-tempo track has all the feel of classic DC that any true fan will love. This album will have you falling in love (with Destiny’s Child) all over again.
