On Saturday night / Sunday morning it was Ronnie’s time to take over Radio 1 / 1Xtra with the 1Xtra showcase that is simulcast on both stations. If you missed it you can listen back – but be quick.
The show featured some of the top R&B and soulful sounds in the world and included tracks by Omarion and Crazy Cousinz, Lenny Kravitz, Beyonce, Mike Hough, Angel, Starboy Nathan, Bluey Robinson, Estelle and many more

The visuals are directed by the one and only Hype Williams and will induce epileptic fits, even to those without the condition. It should SERIOUSLY carry a warning! Hype is behind some epic videos, such as The Notorious B.I.G. – One More Chance, Busta Rhymes – Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See and Kelis – Caught Out There.
The video has cameos from Rihanna and Kid Cudi, doesn’t feature Fergies MIA inspired verse but includes vocals from Charlie Wilson, John Legend, Tony Williams, Alicia Keys, La Roux, The Dream, Ryan Leslie, Alvin Fields and Ken Lewis.
Drake, Kanye West, T.I, Fabolous & Andre 3000 jump on the remix to Chris Brown’s Deuces.
It dropped last night but I was in my bed… allow me;[audio:https://ronnieherel.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Chris-Brown-Deuces-Remix-ft.-Drake-Kanye-West-T.I.-Fabolous-Andre-3000.mp3|titles=Chris Brown – Deuces (Remix) ft. Drake, Kanye West, T.I., Fabolous & Andre 3000]

I know she dropped a little “bitch” in Ego but my baby took me by suprise when I heard her sing “My Niggaz is home” in Kanye’s new track See Me Now, also featuring Charlie Wilson.[audio:https://ronnieherel.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/See-Me-Now-Feat.-Beyonce-Charlie-Wilson1.mp3|titles=Kanye West – See Me Now (ft.

Working in radio I’m used to cleaning Hip Hop tracks, but it angers me when you get R&B stars like Usher swearing all over tracks like Lil Freak and Hot Tottie. I can’t complain though, this track is deep. Especially as Beyonce only recorded her vocals less than 24 hours ago.
Looking forward to Kanye’s new album out later this year.
