The Majak Mixtape - iTunes Shuffle

Loleatta Holloway, "We're Getting Stronger."---The basis for Whitney Houston's current single "Million Dollar Bill," "We're Getting Stronger" is a tasty piece of disco soul music that grooves from the opening "La la las" to the Loleatta's gleeful howls.

Mika, "Blame it on the Girls"--From Mika's recent album "The Boy Who Knew Too Much," this upbeat pop tune powers along on handclaps and a Ting Tings-esque beat and jubiliant vocal delivery from Mika.

Ellie Goulding, "Black & Gold"---A smart cover of hipster Sam Sparro's hit tune, Popjustice darling Ellie imparts her Bjork-esque vocals over spare beats that casts the song into something almost other worldly.

Black Eyed Peas, "Meet me Halfway"---The new single from the Billboard dominating group is a quirky mix of early Madonna sound matched with a guitar riff lifted from the opening of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Maps"
