Each day Complex scours the music blogs for 5 fresh songs that you should listen to in our 5 O'Clock Shuffle post. Instead of going crazy trying to keep up with your RSS feeds everyday, just head over to Complex.com to stay up-to-date on important leaks and releases.
Some people are back at work. Some people have the day off. Either way, everyone needs to check out today's Shuffle playlist. Weekends are usually slow for new music leaks, but several notable tracks hit the blogs over the past couple days. We're assuming you didn't spend your days off hunched over the computer, so keep reading to catch up on all the hot new songs you missed out on...
SONG: "This Is It"
ARTIST: Michael Jackson
• The late Michael Jackson's aptly titled final song has finally hit the Internet. It's not comparable to his classics by any means, but it's certainly a lot better than what most people were probably expecting. The film of the same name hits theaters in a couple of weeks. Look for this one on its soundtrack.
SONG: "Do You Remember"
ARTIST: Jay Sean f/ Sean Paul & Lil' Jon
• Seemingly out of nowhere, Cash Money has another star on its hands. The British pop singer (who currently has the #1 song in the country) may not seem typical for the label, but when you consider their obsession with all-things-income, it makes perfect sense. This new record may or may not be the second single from All Or Nothing.
SONG: "More Milli"
ARTIST: Drake & Birdman
• It's unclear where this track is going to end up. Most sites have billed it as a Birdman song, potentially a bonus cut from his upcoming Priceless album, but we're obviously listening for the Drake verse. Drizzy doesn't disappoint either, boldly declaring to sell a million copies of Thank Me Later in its first week. Well damn!
ARTIST: Joss Stone f/ Nas
• Hey, it's the white girl with the black-sounding voice. No shots though, we actually dig this track from Colour Me Free a lot. Even if you don't regularly check for homegirl, the killer guest appearance from Nas makes it worth a listen. Her album drops on October 20 if you want to hear more.
ARTIST: Plies f/ Keri Hilson
• Believe it or not, Plies is one of the hardest working MCs in the game. He hasn't been around that long, but he's already prepping the release of his fourth album. We're not sure if this will be on Goon Affiliated, but it's a banger nonetheless.
