New Music Tuesday: Bob Marley, Ricky Martin, Dr. Dre, Aretha Franklin, Kidz Bop Kids

Most new music comes out on Tuesdays (it's a U.S. record business tradition), and each week we cull through the mountain of new releases to bring you some of the best from across different genres. Click below, or find them in Napster's New Releases section.
 

Bob Marley & The Wailers, Live Forever Bob Marley & The Wailers, Live Forever: The Stanley Theatre, Pittsburgh, PA, September 23, 1980 (World/Reggae): This historic concert album captures the iconic reggae group's last gig before Marley succumbed to cancer. In time for his birthday on Feb. 6, Napster's version includes five exclusive tracks.

 

Ricky Martin, Musica Alma Sexo Ricky Martin, Música + Alma + Sexo (Latin): Martin's first album since coming out is mostly a Spanish-language affair, but current single "Lo Mejor De Mi Vida Eres Tu" featuring Natalia Jimenez is also included as an English-language version, "The Best Thing About Me Is You," featuring Joss Stone.

 

Dr. Dre, I Need a Doctor Dr. Dre, "I Need a Doctor" (Hip-hop/rap): The latest number from his long, long-awaited Detox album (following first single "Kush," released in November) is brought to you by the hitmaking team that concocted Eminem's smash "Love the Way You Lie." The emotional new single features Em and Skylar Grey.

 

Aretha Franklin, The Great American Songbook Aretha Franklin, The Great American Songbook (R&B, pop, easy listening): A compilation of 18 standards by the likes of Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, the Gershwins, and Johnny Mercer (to name a few), sung by one of the greatest singers of any generation.

As far I’m concerned, and certainly many share the same idea; I don’t care if Ricky Martin is gay or straight or whatever, but what interests me much is his music which is very touching and fabulous. I don’t judge people for their choices, but from what they’re doing. GO Ricky, we’ll be always behind u!
