PON DE REPLAY: Hear these fresh tracks from I-Octane and Bounty Killer, J.Cole and TLC, and Sean Paul

Sean Paul, "Other Side of Love" 
The Grammy winner is clearly going through a very creative period, as evidenced by the succession of singles he's been putting out of late. This latest release is a well-crafted, hypnotic tune about matters of the heart and is reportedly the first single off his as-yet-untitled sixth album, which arrives before year-end. If the rest of the disc sounds anything like this lead-off track, SP should have a winner on his hands. Take a listen HERE. (B+

I-Octane and Bounty Killer, "Double Trouble" 
The dynamic duo, who previously joined forces for "Bad Mind Dem Ah Pree," are cutting the haters no slack. On this Markus Records-produced hit they deliver a melodic hook and a barrage of fighting words that certainly get their message across. Sure to resonate with their hardcore loyalists. Take a listen HERE. (B

J.Cole feat. TLC, "Crooked Smile" 
Off his forthcoming sophomore set, Born Sinner, this repeat-worthy gem of a single finds the Roc Nation MC dropping witty rhymes and clever wordplay about self-worth and self-acceptance (flaws and all), assisted by TLC's T-Boz and Chilli, who've explored similar themes back in the day with songs like "Unpretty." Take a listen HERE. (A-)
