Shunda K of Yo Majesty released her first solo album The Most Wanted this week (although that’s using the term “solo” liberally, as she works with variety of different guest vocalists and producers, including Snax, Cindy Wonderful and Electrosexual). You can download several tracks for free at her SoundCloud, including the single “I’m da Best”, which I described in my proud magazine best-of-2010 mix as happy hardcore gospel hip-house, as well as the Outkast-inspired “My Light”:

She also gave a heads up on “Three-way Freeway”, a forthcoming track in collaboration with Peaches and the Superions, the new band from Fred Schneider of the B-52s. Group sex while driving?
