This week brings a little something for everyone, and an artist who has been around for a while hits the scene in a big way with his latest release.

1.) Aloe Blacc:“Lift Your Spirit”-This has been a big year for Aloe with his biggest song to date and a collaboration with Avicii hopefully he will continue to sing his sweet melodies for years to come.

2.) Young Money: “Rise of an Empire” (guests: Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, Shanell, Lil Twist, Christina Milian, Birdman, Weezy, Euro)-Lil Wayne may not be president of the company anymore, but he continues to make Bank with all the artists on the label. Truly a  group to be reckoned with.

3.) Sara Evans: “Slow Me Down” (guests: Vince Gill, Gavin DeGraw, Isaac Slade)  Critics are raving about this new album and say it was worth the wait. Evans is a well known singer in the Country Music family, and has big names collaborations iwth her.
