British hip-hopper Dizzee Rascal returns to the music world on 18 May with the release of the “Bonkers” single. The sound is a bit different for him and he raps over banding, straight-ahead electronic beats from Armand Van Helden that evokes the Chemical Brothers school of big beat. Dizzee offering up a new full-length Tongue ‘n’ Cheek later in the year as well.

Quentin Huff said of Prince’s new album, “LotusFlow3r, conceptually and in musical diversity, operates as a cross between Stevie Wonder’s Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants and Me’shell Ndegeocello’s The World Has Made Me the Man of My Dreams. Like The Secret Life of Plants, the songs on this set explore, in some way, various aspect of the lotus flower mystique. “Love Like Jazz” and “77 Beverly Park” might even fit the mood and music of Plants.” Here’s the video for “Crimson and Clover” from that release.
