Veteran MC Del the Funky Homosapien has been working on his long-awaited second album with Deltron 3030, but in the meantime, he has teamed with underground group Parallel Thought for Attractive Sin. On "Bring It," Del defty wraps his flow over a fuzzy, groovy, meandering beat. Though "Bring It" doesn't appear on Sin, the track is a funky, hazed-out preview of what's to come.

"The beat comes from an album we did for the Numero Group last year called Eccentric Breaks & Beats Vol. 2," says Knowledge of Parallel Thought. "It contains a sample from the ridiculously slept-on album Gone: The Promises of Yesterday by 24 Carat Black. Would have loved for this track to have made the album, but it was too late." Attractive Sin will be available June 19th, but you can hear this sneak peak now.

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."
