A few weeks ago we got to hear the new Boots song Dreams, which features Beyoncé on guest vocals. Today we get to hear Boots‘s just-released mixtape titled WinterSpringSummerFall … almost in full. The full mixtape features 16 songs but the playlist embedded below only features 10 of those 16 songs.

First Look/Listen: Usher Releases A New Song Titled ‘Good Kisser’

"I done been around the world ..."
"... I done kissed a lot of girls"

Surprise! Usher has got a new music video for his just-released new song Good Kisser and as you can see and hear above, he is making a serious play at music superiority. The video features an often shirtless Usher busting out some sweet dance moves (when he’s not banging on his drums) to a funky dance track. The beat is kinda sick, I have to say. It’s been some time since I’ve been excited by an Usher song but this one has definitely caught my interest. I’ve given it a few listens already and I think it’s a hit. Have a listen, see what you think. Do you find Usher to be a Good Kisser in this video?

HO.LEE.SHIZZ!!!!!!
MJ Never Sounded So Good

A new old song recorded by Michael Jackson back in 1983 and reworked for release on his new posthumous album Xscape has been released and it is, without a doubt, one of the best MJ songs released in the last 30 years — HANDS DOWN! Love Never Felt So Good was originally written and recorded back in 1983 but, for whatever reason, was never officially released. The song has been been updated a bit with vocals by Justin Timberlake for release now and folks, I’m not playing, this song is amazing. The song was world premiered during the inaugural iHeartRadio Awards which was held in LA last night with a special dance performance by Usher.

The SirBizzle Soundcloud page strikes again with the release of a new Justin Bieber song titled We Were Born For This.

Whatever the case may be, the release of these new songs is a boon for Belibers the world over. Have a listen below of this new Bieber track. More »
