Mario featuring Gucci Mane and Sean Garrett “Break Up”
Released:  April 28, 2009 From Forthcoming Release:  And Then There Was Me
D.O.A.  D.O.A.  Please.  Blends where it should stand out. Chorus is catchy.

Ocean’s 7 “Vegas Baby” Released:  July 27, 2009
From Debut Release:  3000 & 9 Shit ♫♪
This is a super-team of R&B-ers and hip-hoppers. The blueprint goes without saying. Works as a novelty song.  Not sure if there’s longevity there.  Guess I should listen to the mixtape, huh?  Actually, this sounds like a perfect soundtrack song for some film.  And, I’m not being facetious. The recurring loop is the best thing about it.

Panic! At The Disco “New Perspective” Released:  July 28, 2009
From Forthcoming Release:  Jennifer’s Body Soundtrack ♫♪
Not horrible.  Not spectacular.  Doesn’t pop, though. But, I like the effect at the end.
