NEW ON THE 5FM PLAYLIST - 20 FEB 2011
Here are the new tracks added to our playlist this week:

T.I’s new single, ‘Castle Walls’, is taken from his upcoming ‘No Mercy’ album. The song features Christina Aguilera and was produced by Alex da Kid.
HHP ft. Omar & Kaygee – Legend
Local Hip Hop Star Hip Hop Pantsula's latest offering.
Jessie J ft. B.O.B – Price Tag
Jessie J is one of the most hyped new artist of 2011. Price Tag was produced by Dr Luke and we'll need to see if it lives up to the hype.
Lady Gaga – Born This Way
Miss Gaga'a latest track celebrates the fact that we're all unique and it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from… she emerged from the egg-like-vessel to perform live at the Grammy awards. Many are saying the track is a rip-off of Madonna's 'Express yourself'.
Chris Brown – Yeah X3
"Yeah 3X" is taken off his upcoming CD called "F.A.M.E." (Forgiving All My Enemies) out early 2011. When it first came out Calvin Harris was surprised by the similarity with his own track, "I'm Not Alone". Although insisting that "stealing is stealing, doesn't matter who you are," he won't take the case to court. Check out the video and see if you agree.
