Chris Brown And Trey Songz Put A Soulful Twist On David Guetta’s “Dangerous”: Listen To The New Remix

David Guetta Performs "Dangerous" Live
David Guetta made his breakfast TV debut on 'GMA' with a live performance of "Dangerous."

David Guetta‘s global hit “Dangerous” has been given a soulful overhaul. Chris Brown and Trey Songz feature on a new remix, creatively titled “Part 2,” of the French DJ’s latest single and manage to do less damage than expected. Trigga’s smooth vocal blends well with Sam Martin‘s original feature and Breezy drops a relatively harmless verse towards the end. It’s an interesting experiment but absolutely unnecessary.

While Listen has produced a string of hits around the world (“Shot Me Down,” “Bad” and “Lovers On The Sun”), “Dangerous” is the first to make much of an impression on the Billboard Hot 100. David promoted the track recently with a live performance on GMA and, no doubt, is hoping to pick up some urban radio airplay with this new version. The same ploy worked for Mr. Probz‘s “Waves,” so I guess it’s worth a try. Listen to the remix after the jump. More »

Chris Brown And Trey Songz Pay Homage To R. Kelly On “Songs On 12 Play”: Listen

Chris Brown teamed up with Trey Songz for “Songs On 12 Play,” a new song from Brown’s upcoming sixth album X (out September 16).

The match-up isn’t just arousing mood music, as to be expected from two young R&B stars. Instead, Brown and Songz weave in references to R. Kelly‘s singles off 1993 debut 12 Play (“Sex Me,” “Bump ‘N Grind,” “Your Body’s Callin’”), plus later hits like “Fiesta” and “Ignition,” in efforts to sound more explicitly adult.

If anything, “Songs On 12 Play” brings to mind how much Brown and Songz (who recently released his own sixth album, Trigga) owe to the still-controversial R. Kelly. Following a brief, almost forgettable stint with new jack swing, the raunchy R&B singer still manages to find new ways to surprise with his dreamy songs of explicit bedroom instructions, from sung-rapped vocals to truly outlandish metaphors.

Neither Brown nor Songz sound as impassioned in their tribute as R. Kelly would on his own, though “Songz On 12 Play” still sounds like an earnest effort. Hear the X song below. More »

Trey Songz Tops Album Chart While Ed Sheeran & Sam Smith Hang Tight Right Behind

Hats (And Shirts) Off!
This summer’s British upstarts Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith aren’t letting go of the upper reaches of the Billboard 200 anytime soon, as they hang in at #2 and #3, respectively, with x (which sold another 53,000 copies) and In The Lonely Hour (45,000). Sheeran topped the album chart last week, but makes way this time around for the #1 debut of “Na Na” crooner Trey Songz‘s sixth album Trigga (105,000).

Amidst all the shuffling within the Top 10, “Rude” dudes MAGIC! debut at #6 with their debut LP Don’t Kill The Magic (36,000), while Robin Thicke‘s public lament Paula creeps in at #9 with 24,000 sold, a far cry from the 177,000 Blurred Lines opened with last summer.
