It is a pretty strong showing this week, and with Kelly Clarkson back from having a baby, she is going full steam ahead!

1.) Azealia Banks : “Broke With Expensive Taste”  -You gotta love the title of this album, something many of us can relate to. It has been a long rough road for Azealia with an abusive childhood and trying to make ends meet while making music. But she has ended up on top and hopefully her star will continue to rise.

2.) Ryan Cabrera : “Wake Up Beautiful”  Ryan had some early success years ago when he was with then girlfriend Ashley Simpson. He has has a few more songs out since those days, but maybe now he will see himself back on the charts.

3.) Kelly Clarkson: “Piece By Piece” (guest: John Legend): She recently said that she could not get anyone to work with her on this latest album, but later said she was only kidding. It seems Mr. Legend had no problem, plus this new mom has done pretty alright all by herself.

4.) G-Unit (feat. 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo) :  “The Beast Is G Unit” (six-song EP)-I love me some 50 Cent, so if  he has this collaboration with his crew that is fine by me!


-Rufus featuring Chaka Khan :“Classic Album Selection” (six-album box set)

-Ace of Base :“Hidden Gems” (previously unreleased material and B-sides recorded circa 1991-2005)
