DOWNLOAD MP3: Chiddy Bang - "The Fuck You Remix" (f/ Cee-Lo Green)
Chiddy Bang's team sent this a few hours ago while I was riding down the yellow brick road, but I'm finally getting to a stable Wi-Fi connection. It's pretty straightforward, really. Cee-Lo's "Fuck You" is a bona-fide internet phenomenon and remixes from names big and small (I think I saw 50 Cent go on the track a couple weeks ago) are bound to hit the wall. Normally I wouldn't even try to keep up with the flow of freestyles, but when Chiddy Bang jumps on my favorite song of the moment, "excitement" hardly covers it. However, calling it a remix is selling "The 'Fuck You' Remix" short. What Xaphoon Jones has done with Cee-Lo's jam is more along the lines of "All Things Go" than, say, their "Stylo" remix.

Despite being produced by Stargate ("Disturbia"), Rihanna's new single "Only Girl In The World" sounds like it's playing out of the book of David Guetta with a bit or Tiesto thrown in for good measure. Rihanna, turning once again to European-sounding dance music, brings the big-chested techno to the collective pop consciousness; and the timing is perfect. Around this time last year, Ke$ha released "Tik Tok" which eventually skyrocketed into Winter ubiquity after Christmas, launching her career. The year before that, Lady GaGa achieved the same feat with "Just Dance". Hear "Only Girl" below: (Continue Reading)
