Valentine's Day alone was a big draw for artists to drop new albums or mixtapes outside of the regular Tuesday releases. This week earned the most releases thus far this year.
Stacy Barthe – P.S. I Love You (Motown Records)
P.S. I Love You is the follow up to her two previous EPs, “In The In between” and “Sincerely Yours.” The new project is led by an unlikely collaboration with Maybach Music's Rick Ross on "Hell Yeah." Though she is working with big name features, Barthe does not stray away from herself on "Flawed Beautiful Creatures;" she amazes the ears with her hypnotic sounds and colorful vocals.
Kevin McCall – The Definition (CBE)
Kevin McCall's 'The Definition' is packaged with several records ready to battle for radio spins. Though K-Mac has several guest features from Tank, 2 Chainz, Travis Porter and Problem, it is McCall's versatility to not be locked into a role as a singer or rapper that stands out.
Mishon – The Gift (Columbia)
The Gift is very personal to Mishon as it showcases some of the most intimate and sensual music the 20 year old has ever created. Mishon celebrates with his fans on Valentine's Day with the brand new mixture, The Gift. The 15-track set includes a mix of ballads and mid-tempo love songs, making for a great Valentine's Day playlist.
TQ – Legendary (Kado Records)
TQ's new album almost slid under the radar, but we caught the first single "Bad Man" featuring Mystikal earlier this week. The self-proclaimed Compton triple OG sets out to prove he is equal to the album title on the 14-track project.
Brooke Valentine – Love Letters (Subliminal Entertainment)
Brooke Valentine give fans a taste of what's to come with the free mixtape, Love Letters. The 14-track set, driven by hip hop production, features a variety of sensual love songs, for the young, grown or sexy.
