No longer content with crafting hits for artists such as Monica Brown and Usher, music producer Rico Love is going the route of other music producers-turned-artists. Love’s first attempt at recording a solo album was in 2007. Crooner Usher Raymond, who signed the 31-year-old songwriter to his US Records, encouraged Love to stick to what he knows best: songwriting and producing. But Love didn’t listen.
Today, Love released the new music video for his hit single “He Got Money” featuring Ciara‘s baby daddy, Future on auto-tunes. Watch the video after the break.
Rapper Kirko Bangz just dropped his music video for “Rich” featuring troubled singer August Alsina. The two Drake and Chris Brown wannabes must have purchased rapper T-Pain‘s old auto-tunes equipment. I guess copycat artists polluting our airwaves is a thing nowadays. Can anyone be original anymore? Watch the video after the break.
R&B singer Robin Thicke pours his heart out to estranged wife Paula Patton in the new music video for his song “Get Her Back”. The crooner isn’t handling their break up very well. Thicke, 36, and Patton, 38, met as teenagers.
The couple split after he got a little too familiar with a petite blond socialite at a MTV VMAs after party last year.
MTV premiered rapper T.I.‘s latest music video entitled “No Mediocre” featuring rapper Iggy Azalea. The video was shot on location in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, by Director X. “All I want is bad chicas/I don’t want no mediocre,” T.I. raps as a bevy of exotic beauties bump and grind for his approval.

B. Smyth‘s New Single “Twerkoholic” was co-written by Smyth and producers Big B and Lamb. After creating a huge online buzz on the blogs — Vine, Twitter, Instagram, etc., his record label made it his first single.
B. Smyth’s 2 singles prior to “Twerkoholic”, “Leggo” and “Win Win” featured rappers 2 Chainz and Future respectively, but B. Smyth didn’t want a feature on this song so he could stand alone as a new artist paving his way and path in the business.
Beyonce’s latest single, “Partion”, off her self-titled album, premiered just moments ago online. The music video after the break is the clean version.
Rap mogul Clifford “T.I.” Harris Jr. appears in Jennifer Hudson’s latest music video, “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)”. The track, which was produced by Pharrell Williams, has a soulful 1980s vibe. The sampled bassline is from “Im’ In Love” by Evelyn ” Champagne” King, according to 2DopeBoyz.
Watch both videos after the break.
