Chris Brown lends an uplifting chorus on “Arena” that’s bound to have you singing along and waving your lighter, while Nicki Minaj guests on the heavy-hitting “Out of My Mind.”

    @Ruston, More than One hit? PLEASE tell me another hit besides ‘Airplanes’ which was a POP song. Fuck this guy. Strange Clouds doesn’t count.

    Sounds interesting. That track with Nicki sounds like a mix between Make Me Proud by Drake & Muthafucka Up by Tyga both featuring Nicki. Still wanna give it a listen tho.

    That Chris Brown track sounds ok too.

    @Shaytan, rihanna has good music, it just now she goes for those big hits!!! we found love has alot of meaning, its people like you who thinks that because something is pop or dance that its not good music!! maybe instead of complaining you take some time to actually listen to lyrics!!

    ps also go take a listen to rated r! that album is proof enough she has meaningful music!!!!

Won’t NODBODY checking for their assess until they got Chris on the hook! Chris for damn sure ain’t cheap! He commands 50k-80k a feature! He wouldn’t be on everybody’s shit if he wasn’t the shit right now!

    @Replay, Haha. You seem to know SO much about Chris Brown…. Or as you would say “faggot”. You mad this grammy award winning artist, named this generation’s Michael Jackson, and prince of R&B (R Kelly is king) is featuring on EVERY album this year? I call that achievement, boo boo. Go get Fortune, die hard.

    B.O.B. on outta my mind sounds interesting and the Arena one sounds good too. But B.O.B. doesn’t seem like the artist that tends to collab with a lot of big name people. I think he’s doing it for sales. Oh well he gotta make his money.
