V Playlist: Trey Songz, Ace Hood x DJ Khaled, Maino x The Mafia, And More
VIBE’s Weekend Additions to the ‘Pod
1. Trey Songz – “Fuckin’ Problems” (Freestyle)
This pretty much falls into the pile of other “Fuckin’ Problems” remixes & freestyles. Even though Trey had an ignorant moment for a second in this freestyle (“White hoes love n*gga dick”), it’s still interesting to see an R&B dude keeping up with the rappers.
2. Ace Hood & DJ Khaled – “Got Those Js”
A song only a sneakerhead could love. S/O to The Renegades on the production.
3. Maino & The Mafia – “World Famous”
Major respect is due to Maino & his Mafia set for making a hip-hop track you can two-step to. Test it out at the next family barbecue—even though the lyrics aren’t exactly family-appropriate.
4. Ester Dean – “Bam Bam Bam (Harlem Shake Remix)”
Ladies & gents, the “Harlem Shake” has officially taken over our lives. One this umpteenth remix, Ester shows off her fast flow—which actually is on point. Whether you find it highly addicting—or highly annoying—Baauer’s latest Hott 100 number 1 single is the new viral craze. Expect many more of these remixes.
5. Rotimi – “Only Human”
Rotimi shows off his acting chops regularly in Starz’ original series Boss, but now he’s showing us his impressive pipes as well. His voice boasts great clarity, and the tune itself is smooth, relaxing, and gets back to the best of contemporary R&B.
6. Runway Bella – “Speak English”
Bella’s verses bring out her inner thug, which is esspential if you want to hang amongst the best of the female femcees. The best on this is dope—much respect to The Fr3shmen for handling that—and Bella definitely holds her own lyrically.
