Jessie J and B.o.B - Price Tag
Bobble: The BBC's Sound of 2011 winner (as predicted by POPSICULTURE's Dansquad) teams up with B.o.B on a near-anthemic track that's both laid back and kinda sweet. Not my genre of choice but I like to think that makes it mean all the more when I actually like a song - and I do like this one. Looks like the Beeb got it right this time around.

Enrique Iglesias ft. Ludacris - Tonight
Dan: That old romantic Enrique Iglesias has fallen in with the wrong crowd on this new collaboration with Ludacris. An otherwise forgettable club track is only given interest by the Andy Gray-esque chorus of "Please excuse me I don't mean to be rude, but tonight I'm fucking you". The Single includes Tonight (I'm Fucking You) and the radio edit Tonight (I'm Loving You).

Bobble: I loved B*Witched and it's great to see the girls releasing new material - even if it is only Edele and Keavy. Sadly I don't think this has the same distinctive personality that B*Witched always had - hopefully their next effort will be better. The video's kinda cool though.

B.o.B. - I'll Be In the Sky
Dan: Okay, I'm biased, I didn't particularly expect to, or want to like this, but B.o.B. certainly has a sort of madcap, cartoonish charm about him, and this re-release of one of his back catalogue shows him on good form. Not as commercial as his first few mega-hits, I'll Be In The Sky is a song to chill to.

The Streets - Going Through Hell
Dan: Mike Skinner jumped the shark a long time back as far as I'm concerned, after building up a massive following and a degree of critical success on his first two albums, he is now largely ignored in favour of the Tinie Tempahs and Chipmunks of this world. For good reason too, Skinner is annoying, his material is dated, and ultimately a bit shit.
