In the wake of the Trayvon Martin verdict and the release of the Fruitvale film, artists have responded with new records filled with messages of activism. When needed, artist are proving that they can answer the call to invigorate "the people" with lyrics that stimulate social and political change. Both Raheem DeVaughn's "Trigger Man" and Teedra Moses' "Hold Ya Head" were records that paid homage to Trayvon Martin and Oscar Grant, plus fan favorites this week.
Chris Brown's "Can't Say No" was not a song about what's going on in the world, rather it is a personal record aimed at the woman that currently owns his heart. Rihanna? Karrueche Tran? A new lady? The guessing game created by the song multiplied listeners' interest in the new internet leak, which placed him atop of Singersroom's Most Popular Singles of the Week.
Ron Isley and Trey Songz are two fellas known for their baby making music backdrops. The artists from different generations united to form "Lay You Down" another romantic mood creator. The new joint from Mr. Isley's third solo album, This Song Is For You, will battle for a position on passion playlist.
