R & B Mixtapes the New Hot Thing

There seems to be a new trend within the R & B game right now, that being releasing mixtapes. This has always been something done mainly by rap artists and top DJs in the industry, but recently many R&B acts have been dropping hot new mixtapes.

The most talked about R&B mixtape, "Anticipated", was released early this summer by Trey Songz. I guess other artists saw the buzz that he was generating with his mixtape and then upcoming album "Ready" and decided to follow his lead.

Soon after Trey, the young Florida star Sammie released his mixtape "Swag & B", which did not get a lot of buzz.

And as of last week Marques Houston and Mya tweeted that they both had mixtapes releasing very soon. Marques also has a new album releasing at the end of this month, so maybe he's trying to get all the buzz he can because I have not heard anything about his album "Mr. Houston".

But the lovely miss Mya has not had an album in years so I am looking forward to hearing new music from her as well as seeing her on the show "Dancing with the Stars" which premieres tonight, September 21, on ABC. Listen to her first single off the mixtape featuring Bun B "Show Me Something".
