Hot R&B Singles June 2012
Our latest installment of new R&B tracks is highlighted by Usher, who continues to build momentum toward the June 12 release of Looking 4 Myself with "Scream." R. Kelly has an album out soon, too - his Write Me Back is due June 19 -- and he's previewing it with "Feelin' Single." (When has he ever not felt single? Just sayin'.) Trey Songz' "Heart Attack" is his first offering from Chapter V, scheduled for later this summer. Brandy continues her comeback with a Chris Brown duet, "Put It Down." And Akon is readying his first album since 2008's Freedom; his first offering from it is "Hurt Somebody," with French Montana (who was originally signed to Akon's Konvict Music, before switching to Diddy's Bad Boy label). Don't sleep on newcomers Billy Wes ("Shake That Jelly" with Tyga) and Luke James ("I Want You"). Finally, Robin Thicke recorded a tribute to Whitney Houston by covering her "Exhale (Shoop Shoop)." Enjoy.
