New Music: Mystery Skulls f/ Brandy & Nile Rodgers – ‘Number 1’

Mystery Skulls and Brandy

While Brandy readies her next album, the R&B diva pops up on a pair of songs for Mystery Skulls. Frontman Luis Dubuc calls upon the singer and guitar legend Nile Rodgers for the disco-infused “Number 1″ and “Magic” off their upcoming debut Forever.

“I think I found my number 1 / You can never be a one-hit winder,” sings Brandy on the blissful track.

“I wrote the song with [Brandy] in mind,” Dubuc told The FADER of “Number 1.” “Then one day she heard it through someone we both knew, and she said yes. We were in the studio like a week later. When she showed up, she asked to sing on my other track, ‘Magic,’ as well. Brandy’s voice is stunning!”

Forever is due October 27. Stream “Number 1″ below.

Fuck You Mean?

Meek Mill is putting in work from behind bars. The Philly rapper, who was sent to jail in July for a parole violation, reminds hip-hop what it’s been missing on his explosive collaboration with Lil Boosie.

Meek has been serving his three-to-six-month jail sentence, but it’s unknown exactly when he will be released. His sophomore album Dreams Worth More Than Money has been delayed while he completes his bid.
