CD cover : No Rest For The Wicked by Lykke Li

LIL WAYNE FEAT. DRAKE - BELIEVE ME
It's a pity that US hip-hop maverick Lil Wayne has decided to retire prematurely - his upcoming studio effort, Tha Carter V, will be his swansong.

Believe Me, Weezy's newest single, is dark, haunting and personal.

"I had these b****es having babies every week," he raps, perhaps alluding to the fact that he welcomed three of his four children into the world between 2008 and 2009.

LYKKE LI - NO REST FOR THE WICKED
No one sings stories of heartbreak better than Li.

There's something enchanting about the Swedish singer-songwriter's voice that makes her tunes resemble sad poems about surviving loneliness in this cold, bleak world.

No Rest For The Wicked shows her at her most emotionally vulnerable.

EXO - OVERDOSE
I can't tell the songs of K-pop boy band EXO apart. The 12-member outfit's newest electronic dance single, Overdose, sounds like their previous offering, Growl, while Growl sounds like its predecessor, Wolf.

A club banger chock-full of dubstep elements, Overdose is highly danceable. But as with EXO's previous material, lacks a punchy killer hook.
