“Always On Time” by Ja Rule feat. Ashanti

Guys, Ja Rule was released from federal prison on Tuesday!! The man who almost singlehandedly scored your middle school dances is a free man again. Although, “free” a bit subjective because now he’s under house confinement for the remainder of his sentence. Either way, let’s celebrate with him (for him?) with one of our favorite Ja Rule cuts.

We had to do it. RIP Chris Kelly and don’t do drugs guys.

“Doo Wop (That Thing)” by Lauryn Hill

Miss. Hill has been having some trouble with her taxes–namely, she doesn’t pay them. Now, she has a few weeks to come up with the money or she’ll be getting to know the ladies of some nice women’s correctional facility in New Jersey. HOWEVER, there is an upside to all of this: Reportedly, as a way of paying back her debts, Lauryn will be making new music. Fifteen years after the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill may be much longer than we were expecting to wait, but we’ll take it. On this Throwback Thursday let’s all listen to a Lauryn Hill classic and keep our fingers crossed that she’ll be releasing a new classic soon.

“Frontin” by Pharrell feat. Jay-Z

This has not been the best of weeks, we know that for sure. Luckily, we believe in the healing power of music. Dance it out to one of our favorite Pharrell jams, because sometimes you just need to hear a good song. Also, Jay-Z is baaaasically the most influential person in the world right now–clearly we’re under his spell.

“Workout Plan” by Kanye West

With the release of Ray J’s new single, we’d like to take this time to remind you all that while Ray J may have been there first, Kanye definitely did it better. (In the musical sense, of course.) So even though we have mixed feelings about Kimye, we fully believe that Kanye > Ray J.

We can’t wait for Kris Humphries to release his single.

“I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston

We can feel the warm weather coming. We’re being teased over here in NYC but we know it’s sooo so close. You know what beautiful weather in New York makes us want to do? Dance. Preferable with somebody but alone is cool too. You do you.
