Sisters Are Workin' Out For Themselves

The ladies of R&B reign supreme this month--with Whitney, Cassie, and Estelle each clocking hits. In fact, the proceedings on the whole were dominated by women. If you include the Imogen Heap sample on "Whatcha Say," all but a couple of the this month's gym jams feature a female vocalist. And, of those two, one is about a lady (who is a genius) and the other I thought was sung by a woman until I started writing this.
