A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...

Trey Songz featuring Drake: "The Usual"

The "Successful" duo re-team for a predictably steamy old-school jam from Songz's upcoming "Passion, Pain & Pleasure."

Jukebox the Ghost: "Empire (Freelance Whales remix)"

The formerly District-based trio's new single gets a ghostly revamp courtesy of the Whales.

Doug Paisley featuring Feist: "What I Saw"

The formerly ubiquitous Feist contributes a barely there vocal to this low-key, '70s-ish folk track by Canadian Gordon Lightfoot/Band/Jim James hybrid Paisley.

The Capstan Shafts: "Heart Your Eat Out"

West Virginia singer-songwriter Dean Wells, who usually home-records under the name the Capstan Shafts, got a band and a coating of studio polish for his new, maybe-breakthrough "Revelation Skirts," from which this short, perfect pop-punk song hails.

The Drums: "We Used to Wait" (Arcade Fire cover)

The Brooklyn band enlivens one of "The Suburbs' " slower moments in this BBC Live Lounge session excerpt.
