EarDrummers! Ciara’s “Body Party” has literally become one of the hottest singles all year and has stayed in our playlist since its release in March. The song is so popular, that now we have an official remix featuring Future adding more vocals than previously seen in the original and B.o.B. dropping by a quick 16. Mike WiLL Made It switches up the drum pattern and sound to mirror the classic Ghost Town DJ’s “My Boo” than it already did prior to the remix. Listen to the track above and stay tuned for Ciara’s self-titled album releasing July 5th. Hopefully we get visuals for the track which we could do a remix of our own for the popular Sexiest Ciara “Body Party” GIFs galore.

For the remix we see fellow Grand Hustle member Young Dro joining affiliates Young Jeezy and Yo Gotti to add some extra bars to the track. Do remember the “G.D.O.D.” mixtape touches down this Tuesday, May 7th; as you can listen to this track after the jump.

The L.A. sound is quickly penetrating rap, as B.o.B is the next to adopt it in his latest single “Headband” with 2 Chainz. The DJ Mustard produced beat is definitely that strip club ready soundtrack, especially since he’s talking about shortys dancing in the mirror and dropping that ass down. 2 Chainz floats all over this one.
Produced by DJ Mustard.
While on the set of his new music video for “Memories Back Then,” T.I. took some time to talk to MTV about the history of the record. The original version of the song featured a sample from Gotye’s tremendously huge single “Somebody I Used To Know” but couldn’t be used by TIP due to clearance issues.
He felt that the record, which also features Kendrick Lamar and B.o.B, was so hot that it needed to be heard by the people. To accomodate this they reworked the production and took out the sample. This is great news, as now TIP and the gang are shooting a video and gearing to push the track as a single. Check out the full interview above.
G.O.O.D. Music’s own CyHi finally drops his latest offering with Ivy League: Kick Back.

Back in December, T.I. gave the go ahead for Sway In The Morning to play a brand new track that didn’t manage to make the final tracklist for the Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head album. Now we get to hear “Memories Back Then” in its perfect quality, with exclusive features from Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B and Kris Stephens. By listening to the cut, it’s evident that it could have easily made his eighth studio release. Either way, each rapper sets the standard for the rest of the industry, with the addition of some stunning vocals from Kris Stephens.

MTV caught up with B.o.B on the red carpet at the Z100 Jingle Ball and he dropped the bomb, revealing he is working on a new Rock EP. Longtime fans of Bobby Ray should be familiar with the fact he plays the guitar and has been performing with his band, and now he’s ready to take listeners to where his sound is evolving to.
“I’ve been holding back so much rock for so long. I have been performing with my band for a while, so I guess this is a real good canvas for me to paint on. No one’s really expecting anything so I can do what I want to do.”
Stay tuned for both of these projects to drop some time in 2013.
