SOHH Soul Rebel Presents: Top 5 Songs I Can't Get Out My Head… Featuring Brandy, Pussycat Dolls, and Estelle. There's a little twist this week, go inside to see what it is.
So this week I'm doing something a little bit different. Each of these songs I've been singing along to this week has something in common with the song that preceded it. It's up to you to figure out just what it is. I'll come by and check to see if you got it figured out. Here we go!
Brandy "Right Here (Departed)"
I can't tell you how happy I am to have Brandy back on the scene – I've been driving around all week playing her old albums – I even had an "Almost Doesn't Count" moment the other day. Haha. The element that connects this song to the next one should be really easy for any true B-Rocka fan.
Pussycat Dolls "When I Grow Up"
I'm not the biggest PCD fan but I love this song – especially after seeing them perform it for Fashion Rocks. It's like nothing else out there. I haven't liked a Pussycat Dolls song this much since "Stickwitu". I think I fell in love with the lyrics, especially the part that goes "Be careful what you wish for cuz you just might get it!
Roc City "Losin It"
This isn't R.City's best song by far, but I love how these St. Thomas brothers bring so much energy to their unique blend of R&B, rap and Caribbean music. If you like them I HIGHLY suggest you Google their song "Bang It" I keep it on permanent rotation on my workout playlist. The boys are also amazing songwriters!
Kardinal Offishall ft Rihanna "Numba 1 (Tide is High)"
Along with Akon, Kardi is one of the hardest working on people on his label. Yet he still manages to stay humble, grounded, and DOPE. I hope y'all don't sleep on his new album; it's perfect for turning up real loud in the car and riding out.
Estelle "Substitute Love"
Bonus (completely unrelated to the connectivity game): Check out Estelle at a signing at the Puma store in Chicago talking about her new video "Pretty Please"
and Bonus #2 Raphael Saadiq ft. Jay-Z "Oh Girl Remix"
