VIBE’s Daily Additions to the ‘Pod

1. Trey Songz – “Dive In”
Gotta give Trey credit for his many clever metaphors about “making love.” The song itself is contemporary R&B at its best.

2. Freddie Gibbs – “Face Down (Full Version)”
Gibbs kills this mixtape track from 2010. The added verses bring the song to life.

3. Nelly Furtado – “Spirit Indestructible”
Nelly gets real in her lyrics while still finding room to have fun with the beat. Interesting if you’re a pop fan.

4. Trina – “So Sophisticated” (Freestyle)
“Dat pussy good, like Trina.” Ok—going in on the MMG beat & getting nasty with it!

5. Jeremih (feat. Marcus Fench) – “Keep It Moving”
Super slow groove. It has a urban hip-hop feel to it, but still has that R&B core.

6. Sneakas (feat. Boldy James) – “Gimme The Loot”
The mixing on that Biggie sample knocks hard. Prep yourself for instant head-boppin.
