Originally scheduled for a September release, Bobby Valentino's new album, Special Occasion will be released on February 13, 2007. The inspiration of this 14-tracked album, which is still in the works, was to return R&B back to its origin with a Valentino twist. In hopes of achieving the return, he has been working with various producers. With the first single, Turn the Page, Valentino is slowly getting back on the top.

Jim Jones Hustler s P.O.M.E. (Product of My Environment)
3.5 out of 5 stars
Commercially, it has been dismal 2006 for the New York-based rap group The Diplomats (also known as Dipset). The group's Dipset: The Movement Moves On and Cam'ron s Killa Season failed in terms of CD sales. But the year might not be a complete disappointment, with Jim Jones' release of his third album, Hustler s P.O.M.E. (Product of My Environment) . The Harlem native has created one of the most compelling albums ever released from the Dipset camp.

He has played Buster Poindexter, a pompadoured lounge lizard, and the Ghost of Christmas Past, a wisecracking spirit in the movie "Scrooged." But David Johansen's most famous role was lead singer of the New York Dolls, the highly influential rock band that hardly anyone ever saw live.
"Rhythms De Mundo"
On paper, this remix project from the surviving members of Cuba's Buena Vista Social Club sounds like a recipe for disaster. Who needs contemporary hits by the likes of the Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, Dido and U2 stripped of all but their vocals and re-imagined as the kind of numbers you'd hear at a swinging Havana nightspot? But after listening, it's clear that project coordinator Kenny Young knew exactly what he was doing. Coldplay's "Clocks," Jack Johnson's "Better Together" and Maroon 5's "She Will Be Loved" sway so naturally, you'll swear they were written with horn sections in mind. Sure, the Arctic Monkey's urgent "Dancing Shoes" sounds silly set to a soothing Latin beat but the rest of the tunes, especially the late Ibrahim Ferrrer's final recording ("As Time Goes By") and a Spanish-language take on Radiohead's "High and Dry," are mucho magical.
