You Oughta Listen: Hot Tracks To Listen Out For

1. Signs - Snoop Dogg featuring Justin Timberlake
2. Don't Phunk With My Heart - Black Eyed Peas
3. Girl - Destiny's Child
4. We Belong Together - Mariah Carey
5. Be Yourself - Audioslave

Signs is an irresistably-catchy pop/hip-hop song from Snoop Dogg featuring Justin, and it seems that everything Justin touches turns to gold. Really. I'm not a fan of Snoop Dogg but Signs is a winner mainly because of its catchy beat and falsetto chorus sung by the Prince of Pop Justin. Check it out.

Don't Phunk With My Heart is the lead single off Black Eyed Peas' second album, Monkey Business, set for release on June 7. It is more of the same Peas that was so successful on their previous album. Catchy beat, nice Fergie vocals and a fun music video. The Fergie part of the song can get a little irritating at times though.

Girl is the third single off Destiny Fulfilled, following Lose My Breath and Soldier. I didn't really like Soldier that much but I think Girl is a much stronger single. It is laid back and as usual, features beautiful harmonies by the girls.

We Belong Together is the second single from The Emancipation Of Mimi, released hot on the heels of It's Like That. It's a good strategy to release it so soon as it builds the momentum achieved by the former single and keeps her in the spotlight (and charts for that matter). Already, this track is Number 3 on the Billboard 100, marking Mariah's return to the Top 10. It's a pretty good urban song, and gladly, she exercises restraint here.

Be Yourself is from Audioslave's upcoming album, Out Of Exile. This track has already reached Number 1 on both the Mainstream and Modern Rock Tracks charts. It's reminiscent of their earlier hit, Like A Stone, with the same tempo and feel. Just as nice too.
