“This Time” F. J. Cole

    From what I’ve heard, Canadian R&B/soul singer Melanie Fiona has put together a pretty hip-hop-friendly album in her sophomore release, The MF Life. And there’s a pretty good reason for that: she reached out to the likes of Nas, B.o.B, and J. Cole to appear on the project. We’re hearing the last of those three collaborations today in “This Time,” a radio-friendly, relationship-centric jam with a head-nodder of a beat. As if that all wasn’t enough, it also features a pretty solid guest verse from J. Cole, who makes a great Bill Bellamy reference. You can stream the track below. The MF Life drops March 20. [HHNM]
