Kanye West and Jay-Z’s kickass collab, Ebe Dancel’s next big hit, Beyoncé and Nicole Scherzinger’s latest, and more!
Published on: Sep 8, 2011 - 7:00pm

( This month, recommends: rap masters Kanye West and Jay-Z's catchy collab, Pearl Jam's famed Mother Love Bone cover, Boyce Avenue and Tiffany Alvord's fresh take on a Maroon 5 hit, homegrown tunes from Boogie Romero, Ebe Dancel, Letter Day Story, and upcoming artist Zia, plus, Foster the People's next tune to put on loop.


Song: "Otis"
Artist: Kanye West and Jay-Z

A hit made in hiphop heaven! This cool collab between two of the industry's prized hit-makers is the stuff of legends. With a throwback to R&B singer Otis Redding's 60s hit "Try A Little Tenderness," the song is all about swagger, and lots of it (something these two titans practically wrote a book on anyway). Grade-A lyricism and a fun-looking video that opens with the rap duo tearing up a Maybach? Yup, we're all about this one right now.

Fun Fact: Jay-Z and Kanye tapped Spike Jonze, the industry's so-called "go-to for high-concept videos" who also directed the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage," Björk's "Triumph of a Heart," and Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice."


Song: "Unang Beses"
Artist: Boogie Romero

Kjwan guitarist Boogie Romero gave us the LSS a few months back with his song "I'll Carry You." Fresh from the launch of his solo album Photographs, he's got us raping the replay button again, this time for his song "Unang Beses." With still a few rainy days ahead, let this relaxing tune keep you company.

Fun Fact: The singer-guitarist actually likes to listen to "I Don't Know How To Let You Go" by Sarah McLachlan, "Un-thinkable" by Alicia Keys, and "I Love, You Love" by John Legend during the stormy season.

    My current LSS is Clara Chung's How To Love. (Yes, a cover of that Lil Wayne hit!). Her vocals, endearing personality (and the fact that she does all the instrumentals) gives the Lil Wayne song an added dimension. Better than Tiffany Alvord, in my opinion! :)
