Pharrell’s 3rd wind is incredible, currently sitting at number 1 and 2 on the Billboard charts, the first person to do so since 1999. Both songs are perfectly suited for his early Micheal Jackson impression and for some reason seems to be resonating in the charts. This all on top of a return to form with his productions (I bet you he regrets making twerk it for Busta Rhymes) with Frank Ocean, Mac Miller and others bearing his fruits. Another person to benefit from the Neptunes frontman return to form is Kelly Rowland. Her lp is rather good and Pharrell’s two songs on the Lp are great. Above is Kelly performing Street Life on Good Morning America (‘low the parents fist pumping at the front).

It was extremely difficult to pick our top 20 tunes of the year, here are the tunes that came close but did not quite make the top 20.
This summer really has been the summer of Sean, the Detroit MC released his lp Finally Famous earlier in the year and this summer has seen him cement that. From guest appearances on some of the biggest songs of the year Big is really one to watch. Here are our top 5 Big Sean tracks of the year.
The video for Beyonce’s Party remix just dropped and we love it at HDD Headquarters. The over-riding feel of the video is that it’s believable, it reminds us of this video of B at a block party.
Here are some other reasons why we love it:
Beyonce cooking up a storm in a teeny tiny trailer in teeny tiny shorts
Beyonce teaching the party how to Dougie
The Yellowman look-a-like
That Keith Haring dress
It’s nice to see a football shirt in an American hip hop video (shame it’s a Chelsea one)
Beyonce and Kelly taking time out from being the biggest females in the games to have some fun
The only thing that could make this video better is if Andre 3000 was on the verse. Props to J Cole for his Slick Rick references though.
