Albums With at Least One “Club Jam” You’ll Enjoy While Drunk Bracket
Chris Brown, Fortune (July 3)
To paraphrase John Malkovich in Con Air, Chris Brown is "somewhere between a cockroach and that white stuff that accumulates at the corner of your mouth when you're really thirsty." But, lest my personal opinion get in the way, here's a tweet from Brown about the album's sound: "Dub step records on my album sounding crazy!!!!" Brown later deleted that one — weirdly, he seems to be more embarrassed about leaking details about his album than about beating his girlfriend. Not a good sign.
Listen: "Turn Up the Music"
Flo Rida, Wild Ones (July 3)
While the song “Wild Ones” has — at best — half the party-starting potential of “Good Feeling,” it was used to promote Wrestlemania XXXVIII, and that was the highest-grossing Pay-Per-View event in professional wrestling history. And maybe the Tron motorcycle from the “Good Feeling” video will make an appearance in the parade of videos! Either way, Flo Rida is very muscular, and very wealthy — I feel like he could provide for me.

Rick Ross, God Forgives, I Don’t (July 31)
Rich Forever was a pretty great mixtape (“Triple Beam Dreams” had a bitchin’ Nas verse), but, of the two singles released from God Forgives, “You the Boss” is... terrible, and “I Love My Bitches” doesn’t live up to the promise of its intro hook. There will probably be a decent single lurking there somewhere, but its chorus will most likely only be remembered as a briefly-trending hashtag on Twitter.
