Drake: Nothing Was The Same


Release Date: 09/24/2013

Record Label: Young Money Records

Genre: Hip Hop

After he said “Take Care” back in 2011, Drake is back with his 3rd effort “Nothing Was Ever The Same” and by golly, it is believable with this release. The 15-track finds the Toronto native delivering a more personable musical memoir filled with both heavenly sounds while mixing both hip hop and r&B. He exudes a series of behavioral change from loud number “Worst Behavior” to the sensual meets hip hop record “From Time” ft. vocalist Jhene Aiko. Successfully convincing in the retro-esque with a 80’s feel “Hold On, We Are Going Home” he calls attention in the very vital track “Language,” down to the ‘chopped and screwed’ ” 305 To My City” ft Detail. This album holds stellar sound quality while each track is perfectly affixed to any listeners aura or state of mind. Kudos to Drake for another chart-topper, this album has been VERSED approved.


Justin Timberlake: The 20/20 Experience 2 Of 2


Release Date: 10/01/2013

Record Label: RCA

Genre: Pop

Hold on JT! Folks are still adjusting to the the first release of this chaotic experience accentuated with likable pop sounds with a finishing touch of R&B sound. Dropping his third release, a second dose of the 20/20 Experience, Timberlake sways his listeners with catchy tunes while keeping the features to a minimum. If he isn’t entrusting Young Money soldier rapper Drake in the Timbaland produced “Cabaret,” it’s the menacing “Murder” number with his bff Jay Z that emanates intensity. Creating a more radical encounter, he talks to the ladies in the relaxed number “You Got It On,” and exhibits his soulful side in the popular single “Take Back The Night.” Could this second release be a better experience ladies and and gents? While you decide, this album will be place in the VERSED approved vault. Spectacular job JT!


Nelly: M.O.


Release Date: 10/01/2013

Record Label: Universal Republic Records

Genre: Hip Hop

Not sure in what direction Nelly was going with the formation of this newly released project titled “M.O.” it is album # 7 for his roster of music collections. Previous efforts included his “5.0” album released back in 2010, which did not do well and it appears this “M.O.” may follow behind. Congesting the album with his fellow comrades in the industry, so much has already happened within the first 10 minutes of the album. Teaming with Young Money princess Nicki Minaj and triple threat music figure Pharrell, a head-bumping tune accompanies the album opener “Get Like Me.” Horrible vocals follow next in the poorly-Rick James-inspired track “Rick James” ft T.I. while he jumps from state to state in “Maryland Massachusetts.” Nelly why?!!! Keeping up with his penmanship and attempting to maintain his lyrical abilities, none of that matters with these not-so-fascinating jingle-like numbers that mask the rest of the album. Heck even the Trey Songz feature in the very pop “All Around The World” just ruins it. I don’t ever want to hear music like this again. This album has been denied a VERSED approved stamp. SMH!
