Dubsmash Not Required

Watch: Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Cousin Just Turned Her Failing Health Into A Music Video Single

#Pray4BK
The inevitable Bobbi Kristina exploitation video

Ugh. So remember how we learned earlier this month that members of Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s family are filming a reality TV show to capitalize/exploit her failing health while she remains in a medically-induced coma? Well, it turns out that her first cousin Jerod Brown has come up with another way to cash in on BK‘s condition. Brown, who raps under the name YF Kennedy, just released a single titled Pray4BK … which you can hear above. Sadly, it would appear that Bobbi‘s coma is proving to be a boon for her family so I’m sure they really are praying her for her hang on for as long as possible … so they can give interviews, film TV shows and release songs. The longer she remains comatized, the more opportunity they have to cash in. UGH.

First Listen: Ricky Martin Teams Up With Pitbull For His New Single ‘Mr. Put It Down’

"Remember lust can get tricky / It's Mr. Worldwide and Ricky"
"I'm so hot / I'm hotter than Hell"

Ricky Martin has released a new single titled Mr. Put It Down and as you can hear above, it features a guest rap vocal by Mr. Worldwide himself Pitbull. There are two very interesting things about this song at first brush. Firstly, I’m a bit surprised that Pitbull would want to be featured on a single with an openly gay man when he has made it very clear in the past that he doesn’t even like perform on stage with gay male backup dancers. It would appear that he may be evolving on this issue, which is good. Secondly, Ricky‘s vocals sound nothing like Ricky Martin. Had I heard this song just randomly, I would’ve never guessed it was Ricky Martin singing. Honestly, I’m not really blown away by this track but give it a listen, see what you think. Do you think Ricky Martin and Pitbull make a good musical couple?
