2011 has already produced some of the biggest music, from acts such as Adele, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Britney Spears, but here are some fresh tracks that should be in your Ipod. Let us know of others that we may have missed!
Singer Kelly Rowland’s new fresh track, “Motivation,” skips the Urban Dance leanings of her previous hit “Commander," in favor of more traditional smooth R&B grooves. The sultry song is made contemporary with a standard vocal cameo by rapper Lil Wayne, and is the sexiest thing on radio since Donna Summer. The single is taken off Rowland’s forthcoming release Here I Am.

The biggest new act out of Ireland, The Script, continues to make an impact with current fresh track “For The First Time.” The single, taken off the band’s sophomore studio output Science & Faith, features the band’s continued lyrical depth and panache for melodic hooks.
Fresh tracks “Pumped Up Kicks” and “Helena Beat," by new Alternative Rock act Foster The People, offers much food for thought with their uptempo and melodically driven music tracks. The songs are featured on, the band’s Electro Pop flavored debut music release, Torches.
British Hip Hop artist Chipmunk is making some noise with fresh track “Champion,” featuring singer Chris Brown, off sophomore studio release Transition. Chipmunk’s counter-pointal rap verses pairs credibly, as in the same manner as singer Rihanna’s contribution to Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie,” with Brown’s chorus vocal contribution.

Beady Eye are basically the all members of the Rock band known as Oasis, including singer Liam Gallagher, sans Noel Gallagher. The band’s new fresh track “The Roller,” which is taken off debut Different Gear, Still Speeding, follows similar musical influences as found in Oasis.
Singer-songwriter, Lenny Kravitz, brings his Funk Rock N' Roll back to life with new fresh track "Rock Star City Life." The single can be found on his soon to be released Black and White America music recording.
