The R&B world drops two hot new monster discs simultaneously today and you can listen to every track free through AOL Music. It would be too hard to choose between these two musical heavyweights, but by the time you listen to the full album streams, you'll probably need to have both.
Mary J. Blige delivers her seventh studio album, 'The Breakthrough,' an emotional journey which reflects her newfound serenity as well as her "trademark straight-up messages to players, cheaters and fools." Guest vocals on the album are delivered by Nina Simone, Jay-Z, Raphael Saadiq, Dave Young and U2.

Also out today is Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx's sophomore effort 'Unpredictable.'
It's been a huge year for Jamie, career wise and 'Unpredictable' is expected to solidify his reputation as a uniquely talented musician. Jamie has some big-time friends drop by to help out on this album, including the aforementioned Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, Ludacris and Twista. This collaboration with Kanye builds upon their work on 'Gold Digger' and last year's hit 'Slow Jamz.' Jamie has also recently worked with Snoop Dogg on 'Real Soon,' a song about the recently executed Stanley "Tookie" Williams.
