"I make albums, not hits," snarls Mississippi producer-rapper Big K.R.I.T. over howling electric blues on "Handwriting," stating his case with the kind of tunnel-vision zeal Kanye West reserves for awards-show rants. 4evaNaDay is K.R.I.T.'s eighth mixtape, a self-produced act of defiance while Def Jam endlessly stalls his debut album. He expresses concern about his thick drawl, but you don't have to be "country folk" to be staggered by his flow or truth-telling – he's an Outkast disciple who can't make an ode to sipping drank ("Down N' Out") without dissecting the self-medication of the "have-nots."

    “Promiscuous”

    Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

    This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
