New Release Sampler, 7/21/2013
This week premiered Jay Z's much talked about new Magna Carta... Holy Grail with its star-studded contributions from Frank Ocean ("Oceans") and Justin Timberlake ("Holy Grail"). Mayer Hawthorne returned with his distinctive blend of retro R&B and Buddy Holly-tight songcraft on "The Only One" and "Her Favorite Song," while Dixie Chicks alums Martie Maguire and Emily Robison have made some of the year's prettiest country tunes with "Rock All Night" and "Sunshine" on their second go-round as Court Yard Hounds. Ace Hood hops out of his Bugatti for "We Them N#gg#s" and "Pray for Me." All this and more in this week's highlights.
