(New Video) Chris Brown feat. Usher and Rick Ross – “New Flame”

Screen Shot 2014-08-15 at 1.33.11 AM

What happens when you put the two hottest R&B singers in the game in one video?

Flames!

Literally!

Chris Brown dropped the video for his new single “New Flame” featuring Usher, and it brought back memories of how big videos used to be.  Throughout the 4-minute clip,  the two fellas showed off their different styles of dancing in two separate atmospheres (Usher in the sky and Chris burning up the ground with his footwork), before coming together in front of an X on fire.

The X, of course, is the title of Chris’ new album.

Meanwhile, although the models were tastefully dressed in white swimwear, Ricky Rozay showed off enough skin for everybody as he rapped his verse.

Smoooth Dee’s Heat 4 The Week: Stacy Barthe – Hell Yeah! ft. Rick Ross

This Grammy nominated singer/songwriter has a list of credits that include Rihanna, Katy Perry and Alicia Keys, just to name a few. Now she rocks the airwaves with her latest single “Hell Yeah” featuring Rick Ross, where she paints a vivid picture of the current state of society and shares her hopes for a brighter future.

Ross definitely adds his signature flow to the track. But in comparison to the  powerful message in the song, the content didn’t add up. But I guess it’s hard when the majority of his other joints attribute to the current state of society.

Great song…maybe shoot for a remix with K Dot, Black Thought, Common or Talib.

Cassie-RockaByeBaby

It’s been almost 7 years since Cassie released her self-titled debut album. Her new mixtape, RockAByeBaby comes as a gift to her supporters.

“Ultimately I wanted to make something to give back to people who have been waiting for so long,” Cassie tells Rap-Up.com. “After this long, if I didn’t come hard with it and come with features and do all the things I needed to do, it would have meant nothing.”

Inspired by Keisha from New Jack City, the 13 tracks feature appearances from Meek Mill, Wiz Khalifa, Pusha T,Fabolous, French Montana, Too $hort, Jeremih, and Ester Dean, plus production from Mike WiLL Made It, James Fauntleroy, Rob Holladay, and Da Internz.
