T.I. may be back behind bars, but he's not letting that stop him from releasing a new album. The rapper's "No Mercy" is his much-anticipated first studio release since 2008's "Paper Trail," which has sold over 2 million copies since its release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. More Info..
"Tron Legacy" soundtrack
So for their highest-profile project to date, you might've expected Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo to flex the party-starting flair they showed iff on "One More time" and "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger." No dice. This soundtrack to Walt Disney Pictures' "Tron" sequel is a determinedly moody affair, longer on minor-key strings and hushed synth burbles than on Daft Punk's revered throbbing beats.

From the aptly named opener "Some Chords" to the time-stopping dubstep ballad "Raise Your Weapon" (featuring Picture Book singer Greta Svabo Bech), the collection employs the Deadmau5 sound in fresh ways, with more energy and more nuance -- and three vocal tracks, the most of any previous albums. If his earlier material relished in the joy of sound, these tracks explore something deeper and more emotional. More Info..
"The album's called 'Strip Me' because it's all about stripping it down to who we are as humans," the British-born songstress recently told Billboard.com. "We're united about our needs, our desires and our pain, all the different things we go through together. 'Strip Me' felt like it explains what the songs are about more than any other title I could think of. So it has a double meaning, but I think people kind of know me enough to know what I mean by it."

Wonders Of The Younger
Still most recognized for penning the smash "Hey There Delilah" in 2007, The Illinois five-piece tries to score another hit with a new lead vocalist on "Rhythm of Love," the beach-flavored first single from sixth album "The Wonders of the Younger." More Info..
"The entire concept is about friends and friendship," Juanes said in our track-by-track feature talking about the album. "Even the cover uses pictures of many of my fans."READ THE FULL TRACK-BY-TRACK HERE..
