The Seed: Rick Ross, Rich Homie Quan, Jennifer Hudson & More New Music
Rich Homie Quan sent waves through the hip-hop world this week with the release of “Another Me.” After his debut single “Type of Way” took off this summer – it breaks into the top 10 of R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay (12-9) this week – comparisons between him and fellow Atlanta rapper Future became commonplace. Though both artists employ similar melodic styles, Quan aims to set himself apart on “Another Me” rapping, "Can’t help how I sound but it can’t be no another me/ And I feel that’s not fair to us/ I’m the future, stop comparing us/ It can't be no another me/ Okay now him and me are not equal/ I got to show these people."
Jennifer Hudson stars in the Winnie Mandela biopic, which is now playing in theatres. This week, the lead single, "Bleed For Love," off the movie's soundtrack hit the Internet. The Diane Warren-written ballad features South Africa’s Soweto Gospel Choir underpinning Hudson’s towering vocals. Hudson’s last appearance on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs was the soundtrack title track, "Think Like A Man," featuring Ne-Yo and featuring Rick Ross. It peaked at No. 33 last year. Could the emotional "Bleed for Love" get her back on the chart?
