Who's Got A Hit?: The Veterans

So this summer, we've also got a few industry veterans hitting us with newness. Saying goodbye to Def Jam after 12 albums (his upcoming 13th aptly titled Exit 13), LL Cool J re-introduces himself with the Lil Mo-assisted "I Cry". Sounds like he took a page from Ja-Rule's how-to-make-a-hit book, but hey, if Ja ain't usin' it... Miss Janet (also a Def Jam signee) is trying to put some more fire into the sales of her latest release Discipline. Third single "Luv" is definitely one of the hit tracks from a decent, but not spectacular album, so I'm happy to hear that this Darkchild-produced joint will be hitting radio very soon. Last, but certainly not least, one of my favorite bands, Coldplay, are crossing the pond again to talk over the world! "Violet Hill", the first single off of Viva La Vida (releasing June 17th), was available as a free download on the band's website, so I'm sure they won't mind me posting it for you guys to listen to. ;)
So, who's got a hit?
