LL Cool J: “Super Baller”
Ladies Love Cool James, but his heart belongs to Super Bowl champions the New York Giants. Fox’s NFL theme song-sampling track (even though the Bowl was on NBC this year) is bound to put a smile on your face. Unless, of course, you were rooting for the Patriots. [Prefix]

Monica & Brandy: “It All Belongs to Me”
Twelve years after they both hit career highs with “The Boy Is Mine,” the R&B singers—now in their ‘30s—are together again for a Facebook-referencing R&B duet that’s silly, already dated-sounding, but nevertheless really fun. [Vibe

Snoop Dogg: “The Flying Pink Pig”
Some people are content to merely rap about dirty sex, but Snoop went the extra mile and wrote the titular (hehe) song for an actual porn film. It’s apparently about a food truck where “the food sucks/and so do the girls.” Classy! [TMZ]

Lloyd: “So Gone”
Seductive R&B usually isn’t this funny, but the breathy high-pitched vocals and the synth-flute hook make this slow jam as amusing as it is sinuous. [The Fader]

Meek Mill ft. Rick Ross: “Errrday”
Bow Wow’s favorite new rapper gets an assist from the founder of the label that signed him. [XXL]

D’Angelo: “Left & Right (James Blake Harmonimix Remix)”
James Blake remixed D’Angelo’s Voodoo single for BBC’s Radio 1. When was the last time you heard something this cool on U.S. radio? Bah-humbug! [The Fader]

F—ked Up: “Year of the Tiger”
The fifth annual Chinese Zodiac single from these Canadian hardcore punks is a 15-minute epic featuring movie director Jim Jarmusch and electro-Canucks Austra. Much like their last album, it proves rock can be operatic and unpretentious and the same time. [Stereogum]
