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: 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, 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" (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 (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. From her early-1960s tenure with Columbia Records.
Kidz Bop Kids, KIDZ BOP Sings the Black Eyed Peas (Children's/Pop): Pop superstars The Black Eyed Peas get the Kidz Bop treatment, with their biggest hits covered as part of the popular children's series. Songs on the album include "Boom Boom Pow," "I Gotta Feeling," "Let's Get it Started," and "The Time."
