The Black Eyed Peas - Imma Be [new track]

Category: By Mircea
Who: The Black Eyed Peas
What: Imma Be [new track]
Album: The E.N.D [out June 9th]

It all started with a snippet of this song, which was rumoured to serve as the first single off of 'The E.N.D'. The rumour was soon infirmed, after Boom Boom Pow 'boomed' in the charts as the first single. The second promotional track has already been announced... the David Guetta-produced 'I Got A Feeling', but it has yet to come out in HQ.

The second CDQ track to be posted on iTunes by the Peas is the full version of Imma Be. Where should I start? Great futuristic track, very good beats, great change of rhytm at the end of the song, very nice Fergie vocals, true style and again a great band doing some top-notch songs. I'm very hyped for the whole album and especially for their next video, which, by the way, was already shot and I'm looking forward to seeing it =)!

Back to the song.. I just love the word play and the cover... brilliant idea.. I'm A!

T.I. feat. Mary J. Blige - Don't Forget [new single]

Category: , By Mircea
Who: T.I. feat. Mary J. Blige
What: Don't Forget [new single]
Album: Paper Trail Re-Release [TBA]

T.I. is getting ready to re-release his multi-platinum selling album 'Paper Trail' sometime this summer. There will be 5 new tracks on this deluxe version. Possible collaborations with Kanye, Fall Out Boy have already been announced.

This here is the first official single pulled off of the re-release. It's called Don't Forget and it features some massive vocals from the r&b queen herself, Mary J Blige. WOW! What a great track! TIP keeps surprising us with these featured guests, without which his worldwide success probably wouldnt've been the same. I can't help but love the soul and feeling Blige puts into her verses.

The two artists have already shot a video for this track in a secret location. The lyrics fit the current situation like a glove because, for those who don't know, T.I. is going to serve some time in jail in a week or so. He'll be locked up for a year and a day. Very sad news but I'm hoping he'll be back stronger than ever!

Brandy - Back & Forth [new track]

Category: By Mircea
Who: Brandy
What: Back & Forth [new track]

Back & Forth is a brand new Brandy track, that recently leaked all over the net. The songstress is currently working on her sixth studio album, set for release somewhere in the fall of '09. This song was produced by Eric Hudson, one of many top producers lined up for the next LP. The likes of Ne-Yo, Stargate & The Game have already been announced. In other news, Brandy is reportedly planning an album with brother Ray J, tentatively titled 'R&B', but it's nothing sure.

This is a great track! I just love Brandy and the power and fresh force she has on every album and song. I'm felt so sorry for her after 'Human' failed to chart for longer period of time. But she declared that it was a too personal album and that's why it didn't do very good, in spite of great reviews and 'Right Here' wasn't even meant to serve as a lead single!

Anyway... what do you think about 'Back & Forth'?

According to my friend, The Prophet, Major Lazer is a new electronic project made up of DJ Diplo & DJ Switch. These 2 guys are currently working on Kelis' upcoming album and they're getting ready to release their own LP this year, titled 'Guns Don't Kill People... Lazers Do'.

Keep It Going Louder (feat. Ricky Blaze & Nina Sky) is a brand new track that will supposedly be featured on the album. The reason I love this one is none other then girl group Nina Sky, which I personally love since the 'Move Ya Body' times. It's a nice joint, good for the clubs and very up-tempo and catchy.

The World We Live In is the next official single pulled off The Killers' album, 'Day & Age'. The video premiered on May 15th and the shoot took place in Banff, Canada.

I've never been a huge fan of this band, but lately they've impressed me with their live showings, singles, videos and everything they do overall. Maybe I'll check them out, especially after listening to this track and watching the video. It was shot in an abandoned building in Banff, which kinda pictures the world around as at this stage.

Album: Evacuate the Dancefloor [TBA]

German dance group Cascada are getting ready to release their third studio album, called 'Evacuate the Dancefloor'. After selling aproximately 4 million copies worldwide with their first two materials, success is almost guaranteed after you listen their latest!

The lead single has the same name as the album, Evacuate the Dancefloor and it has a funny vibe to it. It premiered on a British radio station today and I'm very happy with what I'm hearing. The band members declared that this next material will be filled with some hot tracks, having a diff sound. I like the fact that they changed their style and took a break from the Eurodance genre. It seems that this is a more commercial approach and it will deff bring them a lot of airpaly and good critics.

The video has already been shot in LA and it will premiere on May 17th!

What: Legalize Me [new single]
Album: Independence Day Vol. One [TBA]

D. Woods, former Danity Kane member, is now on her way of pursuing a solo career. After the massive break-up that Diddy turned into a publicity stunt, the black singer decided to follow her own road. Thus, she is most likely going to release a first album, called 'Independence Day Vol. One' somewhere near the end of '09.

Legalize Me is the first official single pulled off this material. I'm really not feeling it... I mean, it's a very mediocre song, compared to other offerings on the music scene nowadays and her voice doesn't help too much, not having a very strong tone. Anyway, the vid has already been shot and you can watch a short 'On the Set' footage here.

Amerie is back into the media's eyes. After a short hiatus she is now back with a new single, a new sound, and a new album.

Why R U? is the lead single off of her upcoming material, 'In Love & War'. It was produced by Buchanans and it's a great track! Nice funk sound on the background and trust me when I say it received massive acclaims since it's release. Some are even comparing it to one of Mary J.'s classics 'What's the 411?'. This new style really fits her and when I sit and reminisce of the '1 Thing' period of time in her life I can't help but wonder why isn't she a constant presence on the music scene. Wanna bet that this is another big break for her?

This brand new J. Lo. track leaked a while ago and I gotta say it's a nice leak.. lol. After some stirring up in heaven with all the Marc Anthony and family so-called 'break-up drama', the latino songstress might release a greatest hits album.

This here is a new song, called What Is Love. It was written by Wynter Gordon, which actually had the nerve to bash Jennifer's version, but that's another story. I really love this one! It sounds very good and miss Lopez really has a nice voice. I'm hoping that this is what she'll be offering in her upcoming career years.

Justin Timberlake's most fresh 'apprentice' is really set on taking over the music charts.

The first Esmee Denters single finally premiered its video a few days ago and I gotta say I'm surprised. I was expecting some 'Hannah Montana'-like childish stuff but I'm happy to say that my expectations were surpassed by far. The chick image that she shows in here is a great one. She looks very good and this pop-raunchy video really made me dig the song even more. Her voice sounds promising too and with a bit of luck she might just make it big.

American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, is finally back! After the breakout that she managed with her self-titled debut album, she's now ready to release some new material, under the guidance of none other than the hitmaker known as Ryan Tedder.

The new single off of this upcoming LP is called Battlefield and it truly is a winner! It has a great chorus and it really is addictive. It has a very good message about love being nothing but a fighting ground and it's just so breathtaking... especially the chorus which makes it seem like a real anthem. Great job and deff a future hit!

Ciara Live @ Saturday Night Live

Category: By Mircea

Another artist out promoting it's recent effort is r&b vixen
Ciara. With her 'Fantasy Ride' LP out since a few days ago, she's now going all over and performing.

Last night she was on Saturday Night Live, where she performed 'Never Ever' and 'Love Sex Magic' together with wonder boy Justin Timberlake.

Justin was one of the special guests on SNL, making the latter performance a great one.
I'm gonna judge what I'm seeing as a fan of CiCi that's wondering whether to buy 'FR' or not. My verdict: I'm deff buying this one! The girl did a fantastic job with this two performances. Great vocals and especially great moves. Hands down for an amazing show... she is really selling her material the right way! Good job lady!

Category: By Mircea

The Black Eyed Peas were invited as performers at the Summer Kick-Off Concert in San Diego. Hot on the promotional trail of their upcoming studio album, 'The E.N.D', they performed a brand new song off the material, called I Got A Feeling!
I'm not gonna mention the fact they they were amazing as always and delivered a great show!... there I said But the song is great! I thought that this album was going to be made out of 'Boom Boom Pow'-like tracks... guess I was wrong. Feel the European dance vibe? It was produced by French DJ David Guetta and if it's things like this that the guys have in store for us, all hail the Black Eyed Peas!

I'll post the full HQ version as soon as it comes out!

Ciara - Tell Me What Your Name Is [new single]

Category: By Mircea
Who: Ciara
What: Tell Me What Your Name Is [new single]
Album: Fantasy Ride

Ciara has officially announced the next single off of 'Fantasy Ride'. After the floor-filler 'Love Sex Magic' was, this works just perfect as an up-tempo ballad.

It's a great song and I trully believe that it's one of the high points that the album has to offer. With a romantic message and a nice beat it should have no problem gaining the succes that the JT collabo had, reaching Top 10 in various countries.

Meanwhile, we're all eager to find out what 'FR' will be doing on the sales part. It's out since May 5th and most of the fans and critics are waiting for the sale numbers, especially after so many pushbacks. She is now in a direct fight with Chrisette Michelle for this week.

The 'fantastic duo' reunite once more for what I hope to be a future single. This time, Wyclef is the main star on the track called The Border. It's not known yet if it's a new track or a leftover from a previous album or recording.
What we do know is that it's been produced by Timbaland. And the moment couldnt've been better. If this is actually a new single, it will deff tip the charts as a summer hit. And, even though I don't think that it'll manage to surpass the hype and success of 'Hips Don't Lie', it still has a nice party-jam vibe to it, which is enjoyable.

What: (I Make) Good Girls Go Bad [new single]
Album: Hot Mess [TBA]

Pop-rock American band Cobra Starship are getting ready to release their third album, 'Hot Mess'. An official release date has yet to be announced. We have here the first single off this upcoming material. It's called (I Make) Good Girls Go Bad and it features none other than Leighton Meester, aka Blair Waldorf from the too-popular 'Gossip Girl' series.

The track is great. I just love the tempo it has... it gets you dancing and it's very radio friendly. Surprisingly, Leighton sounds very good here and she fits like a glove on this.

By the way, she's currently working on her debut album with great producers, such as JR Rotem & Polow Da Don, who have wrote for international artists, like Fergie and Sean Kingston, among others. I think she'll do good if she keeps this style.

Flo Rida is out promoting latest single Sugar, off 'R.O.O.T.S.'. Last night he was on Jimmy Kimmel's show, together with Wynter Gordon, where they performed the 'sweet' song.

Nice performance, but what about Wynter?!?! I wanna hear her voice, not her voice over the song. That I didn't like. Still, the song jumped on Number 5 on Billboard 100 this week so it's already a hit. Stay tuned for the vid, which should come out anyday now.

Yes it's official! After countless rumours, Radar is the official single number 3 pulled off probably Brit's hottest album yet, 'Circus'. It's been announced on her official website.

It's a very hot track and probably a matching video will be shot. Still, I would've prefered Mannequin as a next single, being a very slick dance track and it would've been cool to see Britney move the right way.

Anyway... it'll still work.

It's only a min and a half snippet and it contains some of Weezy's rap, but it's a sure thing that Madge is gonna be on it.

Even though I'm sensing a 'Radar' a la Britney vibe on this, it's deff a hot radio winner and it will be a huge hit... that I can vouch for!

I'm gonna start off by apologizing for the lack of posting this past week but I was away on a holiday to relax and chill out. I'm back now and this here is a mega-post with everything that showed up in the last 5-6 days!

-> Teairra Mari feat. Flo Rida - Cause A Scene [video]
This video premiered hous ago. WOW! Great vid. I especially love the dancing part. Great job! Keep it going, Teairra! Kinda reminds me of Ashanti in some shots; Flo is cool... as always!

-> Lil Kim feat. T-Pain & Charlie Wilson - Download [video]
Lil Kim's brand new single. Wack video, really didn't expect it to come out this good!

-> Eminem feat. Dr. Dre - Old Time's Sake [new track]
These Eminem tracks are slowly leaking one by one. This one here is kinda cool and it might do him justice... the duo still keeps it fresh. It's rumoured to be the third single off 'Relapse'.

-> Ciara - When I [new track]
When I is the iTunes bonus track from Ciara's 'Fantasy Ride'. Great track... can't quite figure out why the hell it was left out the original material.

-> Craig David - Escort U [new track]
A newly leaked track from Craig David after quite sometime. I'm really likin' this one... and waiting for another album!

-> Pussycat Dolls 'Hush Hush' Official Artwork
Seems like Interscope finally reacted to the fans' complaints and removed the 'feat. Nicole Scherzinger' line. Here is the final version of the cover.

-> Rihanna - Terminator [new track]
A brand new track recorded by Rihanna, called Terminator. Guess what, it's for the upcoming 'Terminator' movie.. who would've thought. Cool song, but too many effects! Just sing it yourself, girl!

-> Eminem - 3 AM [video]
The second single pulled off 'Relapse'. The video premiered on May 2nd and it's deff a gore one! I don't think that releasing singles at this rate is very recommended.

-> Christina Milian feat. Kanye West - Diamonds [new track]
The original version of Diamonds leaked. It was supposed to be on Christina's 'Elope' record, but it's been moved to Teairra Mari's album. Check it out and also here is Teairra's version.

-> Trey Songz - I Need A Girl [video]
Trey is getting ready to release his third album, 'Ready' [out on August 4th]. The first single to be released is I Need A Girl.

-> Busta Rhymes feat. Lil Wayne & Jadakiss - Respect My Conglomerate [video]
This is the video for the latest single pulled off Busta's eight studio album, 'Back on my B.S.'.

-> Asher Roth feat. Cee-Lo - Be By Myself [video]
Asher has released the video for his latest single, Be By Myself (feat. Cee-Lo) off 'Asleep in the Bread Aisle'. Nice tune and I really dig the whole idea of the video production. Hope he makes it big.

-> Black Eyed Peas 'The E.N.D' Official Artwork posted the official cover on Dipdive a few days ago. After a few fake covers, made out of the promotional photos, this here is the real thing and here is what Will declared: 'This is the face of digital energy, this is what we look like when Fergie, APL, Taboo, and combine digitally, we are one in this image… this is the E.N.D!!!!'

-> Katy Perry - Waking Up In Vegas [video]
Katy released her long-expected video for the fifth single pulled off 'One of the Boys': Waking Up In Vegas. Great video, very colourful. Love the inspired ending and also her acting in this one!


Pussycat Dolls Drama strikes... Again

Category: By Mircea
As most of you already know, the all-girl group Pussycat Dolls has been involved in some serious drama and gossip lately. And, unless you've been living under a rock, you know that everybody's talking 'round about a specific Nicole Scherzinger, the lead singer of the group.

Let me fill you in... it all started with the release of 'Doll Domination', the girls' second album. As soon as it came out, fans and critics alike were a bit harsh with the material, because Scherzinger received too much credit and she was singing most of the songs by herself, with the other girls sometimes not eve opening their mouths for the smallest sound. In spite of the solo tracks, that each doll recorded, mouths were still chatting about a 'Nicole Domination', which was set to soon light up some harsh moments.

After going on tour to promote their newly released album and after having some sold-out shows all-over Europe, the girls were headed to the U.S, where they would support Britney on her 'Circus' tour. Meanwhile, another single was released, 'Jai Ho!'... and there was a very interesting line in the promotional cover: 'feat. Nicole Scherzinger'. Weird, considering that they were all a group. Still, it was left aside and it was thought that it was all just a mess, mostly 'cause Nicole wrote the song herself and sung it herself and that's why she was exclusively featured. All good, until the release of their next single's cover: 'Hush Hush (Pussycat Dolls feat. Nicole Scherzinger)'. Again, the same thing.

Until now, things were already heated up. Sources claim that the group wasn't all that friend-ish behind the scenes and only showed their happy faces whilst on stage. The dolls were invited to many shows and gave a lot of interviews to confront these rumours and clear the air, one of them being their latest radio interview, which you can listen to HERE! Really good job of covering up... that's if there was anything to cover.

Here is a recent burst that Melody Thornton had at a concert in Phoenix, Arizona, her and Ashlee Roberts' home town... deff the boiling point.

She sounded dead serios and she even seemed angry about it. From the gestures, to her voice tone and the high-fiving with friend Jessica Sutta, it all seemed freakin' weird!

My spin on this drama is: I trully think that this isn't Nicole's fault. Their record company is the one to blame. The girls knew what they were signing up for... and hey, let them be mad, they have every reason to do that. Go insane, go beat someone up... but don't get upset on Nicole. I trully don't want to believe that she is behind all this or that she is hand in hand with the record company. She's the lead singer, it's her job to be up-front in the shows and have most of the say.
I feel like 'Pussycat World' is coming to an end... too bad. Maybe with their 3rd album they'll be back on track. But I'll say it again: I don't think Scherzinger is the reason that all of this is happening... blame it on the rec company. They don't know how to show the talents that the other girls have.

Here's to a bright future for them...
What do you think about all this?

I was hoping for the vid to have a little story to it or something like that, but I'm very happy that Kanye decided to show some amazing sights that our planet has to offer and to describe them with one word: amazing! It was shot entirely in Hawaii, so just lay back and watch these great show!

And here is the official premiere. After seeing the 'Behind the Scenes' footage I honestly expected more when it comes to location. The whole clip was shot in a single place. But still, it suits the track and the idea of the guys singing with a wall burning in the background is still cool... at least that's my favorite part =).

Beyonce performs 'Halo' Live @ The David Letterman Show!

Beyonce served up as a guest on Letterman's show last night. She was there to promote her new movie, 'Obsessed', talk about the American leg of the 'I Am.. Tour'. She also chatted about her sister, Solange and gave a live performance of the up-lifting 'church-choir-like'-anthem, Halo.

Peek the interview and the performance below:

Very nice interview. It was good to see and hear a more open-minded Beyonce, total opposite of the image she promotes with the 'Sasha Fierce' dark-minded side.

I can't help but like Bee more and more after seeing her perform this way. I mean, she had great energy here and was in justice with the message of the song. It was clear that she put her soul into the performace... just watch her face and all her hand gestures. And once more, the vocals were outstanding.

T-Pain joins Jesse McCartney on the official remix of the young artist's current single, Body Language.
Again with auto-tune, the rapper turns this one into a nice mixture of pop & hip-hop, which will most probably get Jesse some airplay on the Urban radio stations.

The sound McCartney is delivering lately is kinda like a breath of fresh air on the current music scene, making his music very listenable and quite enjoyable. Deff waiting for more from him and after the eventual video release for this single I'm hoping he'll be out with a new album, as good as his latest.

This is the official cover of Eminem's highly anticipated sixth studio album, Relapse. The photo shows his face made up of thousands of pills, reminiscent of his addiction. I like the idea... very inspired. And also, zoom in on the prescription in the low-left corner... another good move.

Here's a statement that Em gave in an interview for a summer magazine issue, related to his drug problems:
"But, for some reason, in hindsight, the way I felt was almost like [Proof's death] happened to just me … I just went into such a dark place that, with everything, the drugs, my thoughts, everything. [sic] And the more drugs I consumed, and it was all depressants I was taking, the more depressed I became, the more self-loathing I became…"
I'm glad he's out of that mess and I'm deff buying his album. Check out 'Relapse' in stores, May 19th!

Jamie Foxx has decided to release this Timbaland produced track, I Don't Need It, as his 4th single. The first three choices didn't enjoy such a huge succes in mainstream, his best achievement being spot no. 5 on Billboard Hot 100 with 'Blame It', but he kinda played it right in the Hip Hop/R&B zone, with 'Intuition' reaching number one; I'm hoping that he'll do better this time around.
I'm not blown away at all, I was expecting a little bit more than those typical and immortal Timbo beats. After a few listens it grows, but I'm waiting for the vid to come out to see if makes the track a better listening tune.

After listening a few seconds from each track on this album, I'm very bummed as to why they kept the good and the best stuff for the end and put out so weak promoting tracks, which wouldn't, in anyway, do justice to how good the material is. I mean, there are some very sick beats here, and CiCi might strike gold with this one, but only with a fair single choice.
There are some tracks like 'Work (feat. Missy Elliott)', this 'Promise'-like 'Tell Me What Your Name Is' and the previously leaked 'G Is For Girl (A-Z)' that deff deserve every bit of attention. And don't even get me started on each other song off this album, 'cause I deff have tons of good stuff to say!

100 ladies (most of them single... lol) took downtown London by surprise when, at the sound of a whistle blow, they stripped down and performed Bee's by now iconic and almost-too-famous 'Single Ladies' dance routine, which is taking the web world by storm even though it's been a few months since it came out.

The meaning of this innovative campaign was to inform people about the free concert that Beyonce will be holding at the infamous O2 arena in November. It's going to bee a free gig and since the whole thing was sponsored by Trident, the only assignemt one should fulfill to get a chance at entering the concert is to buy a pack of Trident Gum. (Contest open only for UK residents).

Ok... leaving aside the contest, I have to say I am pleasantly suprised by this kind of promotion. I find this whole dance routine idea truly outstanding and it really got everyone's attention through it's spectacle and huge number of participants in perfect sync. The part I loved the most is when all the girls take off at the end like nothing happened 'til then... lol. Let's have some more moments like this!

Lady GaGa covers 'Viva La Vida' (Coldplay)

Category: By Mircea

Lady GaGa is currently promoting her material throughout Europe and after many live performances of 'Poker Face' in England & Germany she stopped by a radio station in the UK at the beginning of this week, where she offered her own rendition of Coldplay's 2008 smash hit, 'Viva La Vida'.

What a nice performance that was... I really didn't expect her to do so well. When she messed up the lyrics she had the ability to come out of that just perfect, like a true artist and simply went on with the song. I'm already used to her non-sense screaming while performing and although I really don't dig the outfit she sported at the show, I'm trying to only listen to the performance. And exactly like she said: 'otherwise it's a good job'; you're damn right...

Pussycat Dolls - Hush Hush [official artwork]

Category: By Mircea

Here is the official artwork for Hush Hush, the official next single from Pussycat Dolls. It has the same style that DD imposed and haters are already talking trash about it. And I'm gonna say this once more: the reason that 'feat. Nicole Scherzinger' is written there is to highlight the fact that Nic is the only one singing and the other girls are just dancing; just like 'Jai Ho!'.

Anyway... Robin Antin, founder of PCD declared that this will be the greatest video that the girls ever made and it will feature a lot of cameos, including one with Perez Hilton. The shoot will take place in 2 weeks. And Robin also said that the next album will feature more vocals, especially from Jessica & Melody, so I'm looking forward to everything they're planning.

And check out this live performance of 'Jai Ho!' that recently took place on Ellen DeGeneres' show. It might even be their best interpretation of this song yet, with great vocals from Nicole.

What do you think about the cover and the performance?

Keri Hilson - Trojan Man [new track]

Category: By Mircea

Who: Keri Hilson
What: Trojan Man [new track]

This here is a newly leaked Keri Hilson track. It didn't make the final cut on her debut album, 'In A Perfect World...', which currently isn't doing too well with sales, dropping to 15 this week on Billboard 200.

It's an up-tempo track, with a nice beat to it. I don't get why they left it out. Some think the song isn't all that great, some like it (count me in) and the least you can say about it is that it shouts out a very important message to all youngsters these days: safe sex... yeah, you heard it right, that's what it promotes. In a slick way, but still... at least it does something good... lol.

Check it out!

Kelly Clarkson - I Do Not Hook Up [video]

Who: Kelly Clarkson
What: I Do Not Hook Up [video]
Album: All I Ever Wanted

So... wasn't this vid suppose to premiere tommorow? Anyway... there's no surprise it got out earlier than expected, it's something usual these day... lol.

Kelly looks good from what I see and there's a little funny twist to this vid. It looks very nice, colourful and stuff and I'm sure it will do justice and get her another winner hit... after all, she deserves it after that failure 'My December' was.
