Keepin' it knockin'

A while back, Dino asked me what was lighting up the clubs recently. Here are three of the latest drop-your-drink-and-hit-the-dance-floor cuts, all guaranteed to shake your foundations. Then, as a bonus, feast your ears on the new single from TLC vet Chili, who - now in tandem with Missy Elliott at are most outa-space - has launched her solo salvo with a spare, ballsy track that manages to sound simultaneously seductive and stand-offish. I've got no idea whether "Straight Jack" will achieve the popularity of the three hits here, but we can all hope, can't we?

Turn it to 11, and spin your partner round and round...

Beyonce (feat. Jay-Z) - "Upgrade U"

Rich Boy - "Throw Some Ds"

Jibbs (feat. Chamillionaire) - "King Kong"

Chili (feat. Missy Elliott) - "Straight Jack"

On the box right now: MC Lyte, VERY BEST. "Ruffneck" is still the bomb...
