Watch: Ciara 'Gimmie Dat'

Haven't posted in a while, but thought I would post this video for those that haven't seen it. The video leaked one day early than its premiere and made its rounds on the net last night. The video has received many great reviews and shows Ciara at her best. Peek the video below:

I usually don't give videos the time of day but this video definitely blew me away. I love the dancing, I love Ciara (she looks HOT), and this has instilled confidence in me for her Basic Instinct era.

What did you think?

24/7 Entertainment Interviews 'Auburn'

24/7 Entertainment got another chance to interview an up and coming artist. This time it was with Auburn.
Auburn is a 21 year old singer/songwriter from the US who is currently signed to Warner Bros and J.R.Rotem's record label Beluga Heights. She has been dubbed the Princess of Beluga Heights as she is the first female to be signed to the record company. She is currently working on her debut album to be released either later this year, or early next year. Her first single is called 'La La La' and the video premiered the other day. Check the video out here.
Anyways check out the Q & A session below and enjoy:

Glee Promos!

Check out these cool Glee promos! They are for the new season coming up which will premiere on September 21st on Fox. The promos show Charice and other stuff that will be coming up, so make sure you watch!

Can't freaking wait! Can you?

Download: JoJo - Can't Take That Away From Me (Mixtape)

JoJo is back with some new music in the form of a FREE mixtape. The mixtape was exclusively revealed on Rap-Up.com and can be downloaded through the links below. I love some JoJo songs but I wouldn't class myself as a fan. The mixtape from what I have heard is actually quite good, so make sure you go check it out - it is free so what have you got to lose?

Single Cover Listen: Rihanna - Only Girl (In The World)

Rihanna is back with a new single titled 'Only Girl (In The World' and album titled 'Loud' which will be released sometime in November. In case you have been hiding underneath a rock or something, then check out the single cover and listen to the single below:

The track was not what I was expecting, but nevertheless it is quite good. It does take a few listens before it reaches impact, but I think that this era may be good for her. Its definitely a different direction from the dark 'Rated R' era.

Are you digging this song?

Single Cover & Listen: Natasha Bedingfield 'Strip Me'

Here is what is supposedly the single cover to Natasha Bedingfield's next single entitled 'Strip Me'. It is either the lead single of the album or second single, depending on whether they have classed 'Touch' as a single or buzz single. Either way the cover is plain, and I could throw a better one together than that, but who cares?
The song is AMAZING and another one of Natasha Bedingfield's hits! Check out the song below:

What do you think?

Video Premiere: Auburn - La La La (Ft. Iyaz)

New up and coming singer/songwriter Auburn has just recently released a video for her first single titled 'La La La' featuring Iyaz. The song is an absolute smash and I still have it on repeat. Check out the official video for the track below as it was officially released through Auburn's myspace page.

Oh, and one last thing, go and SUPPORT this girl!
P.S. Interview coming soon...

UPDATE: The Saturdays Collaborate With Flo Rida!

The Saturdays recently went on a trip to LA. It is unclear of exactly what they were doing there. They had some meetings and were apparently filming. It also seems that whilst they were there, they got Flo Rida to collaborate with them on one of their tracks. It is not know which track that Flo Rida will be featured on yet, but it has been specualted to be their next single, Higher. More news will become available once I have it.

What do you think of this news? I actually can't wait to see what this will sound like but I sincerely hope this gets them a #1 hit!

*UPDATE: It has been confirmed that Flo Rida will feature on the single version of 'Higher' which has a unconfirmed release date of September 27th! 

Flashback Game #1

I done this game before but I called it Celeb Rewind. Decided to change the name to Flashback. So I will post a picture of a celeb when they were younger here. And you need to comment who you think it is. Very simple :)

No prize, just a bit of fun! Get guessing!

New Song: Nicki Minaj - Check It Out (Ft. Will.I.Am)

Nicki Minaj is back with a new song titled 'Check It Out' featuring Will.I.Am. The track is really catchy and Nicki once again delivers. The track samples 'Video Killed The Radio Star' so you know that the track is a banger. Now that the HQ has leaked, I have really got to love the track. Listen below and look in the comments for the link.

What do you think?

Album Review: The Saturdays - Headlines

Back to normal-ish now and back with another album review. So lets crack on. The Saturday released mini album/EP 'Headlines' which is being referred to as their third album. The album contains 8 tracks and has 3 tracks from their 'Wordshaker' album and includes their new single 'Missing You'.
The album is their highest charting album to date gaining a respectable #3 in the UK album chart, but was the album worthy of that position?

Here is my track-by-track review:

24/7 Recommends...Girlicious - 2 In The Morning

After a little while and I am back with a new recommended track. This time I have chosen the new Girlicious single titled '2 In The Morning'. This is the third single taken from their second studio album 'Rebuilt' which will be released this fall.
If you haven't heard the song check it out below:

The song is really catchy and is definitely another smash from the Girlicious girls. Not sure if it is better than Maniac but defo better than Over You. I am really anticipating this new album as I have liked all the new material and their first album was really good!

What song/album would you recommend?

Alexandra Burke Acts Like A Diva?

Alexandra Burke is said to have started acting like a 'diva'. Whilst singing at the 30th birthday party of footballer Jamie Carragher's wife Nicola, she apparently refused to take photographs and even sent her manager on a 20 min walk to find a specific brand of bottled water.

I am not sure if this is true as the story was probably spindled out of nowhere. It definitely wont change my views on her as I will always love her. Seriously though, which celeb hasn't been said to have acted like a diva?! Alex has just been added to a neverending list.

What do you guys think?

Diana Vickers 3rd Single & Album Re-Release!

Diana Vickers has confirmed via Ustream that her third single will be a new track titled 'My Wicked Heart'. It will be available to download on October 24th and the physical release of the single being the following day.
Speaking about the new single she said:
"The third single is a brand new track which none of you have heard and I'm really excited about this. It's called 'My Wicked Heart'.
I've been working with this really great writer Dee Adams and a really, really great producer called James Earp. I went into the studio and was mooching around and we ended up writing 'Wicked Heart'.
I was so excited about it and just so enthusiastic and I always think - since I started and I recorded the first album - that I've grown so much, my voice has become stronger and I loved doing all my live shows.
I just wrote the track and I thought it was so wicked and I couldn't wait to show you all. So we've got it as the third single and I'm really excited about it."
As this is a new track that was not on her debut album 'Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree', it has been confirmed that she will be re-releasing the album which will feature the news single plus other new tracks on November 1st.

What do you think? I am looking forward to see what new stuff Diana has made as I loved the album so I hope this follows suit!

Rihanna's New Single 'Cheers' In Less Than 10 Days!

I apologise that I have neglected the blog over the past few months, but I am back and will be posting news and links whenever possible. First, I have some news on the new Rihanna single from her upcoming fifth studio album. The song is now claimed to be called 'Cheers' instead of previous reports of a song titled 'Only Girl'.

Rihanna took to her Twitter page earlier today to report that the new song will be out in less than 10 days! See what she wrote here.

What do you think of this news? Are you excited?

*UPDATE: It has been confirmed that the single will be called 'Only Girl (In The World)' and will be released to radios on September 14th*

The song is OK but nothing spectacular in my eyes. But what do you think?

Bruno Mars 'Doo-Wops & Hooligans' Album Cover

Peek the album cover for Bruno Mars first studio album titled 'Doo-Wops & Hooligans'.

The album cover is simple and is what you would expect from Bruno. The album title is a bit weird but I am seriously anticipating this album so I couldn't care less what the album title was as long as the material on the album is excellent.

The album is scheduled for an October 5th release.

Natasha Bedingfield's Next Album To Be Titled 'Strip Me'

Natasha Bedingfield has been working on her fourth studio album which has now been confirmed to be titled 'Strip Me' and will be released sometime this fall. I am guessing that she will only be releasing in America again then. Either way I will still get to hear the album, regardless of where it is released. Here is the message she posted on her official Twitter:
"Drum roll please... I have decided my album name!!! Its called Strip Me. And Its coming out this fall :)"
I also came across this really short snippet of a track called Strip Me by Natasha Bedingfield which also sounds promising:

I am really excited about this new album and actually hope that she does bring it out this fall because I need some new Natasha in my life. I loved all of her previous material and all of her new material, Touch, Speechless and Shoot For The Stars, so I have high hopes for more new material.

What do you think?

Step Up 3D: Behind The Moves Part 3

Here is the final video (for the moment) of the Step Up 3D: Behind The Moves videos. This one features the choreographer of the film (Jamal Sims) and talks and shows the different styles of dance in the film. It is really interesting and a must see for fans of dance, etc. Enjoy!

What did you think?

Exclusive Listen: Zarif - The Day The Music Left Me

Zarif is a new British singer-songwriter who will be releasing her debut album titled Box Of Secrets on August 23rd. I recently did an interview with her which you can check out here. Here is an exclusive track taken from the album. She will be posting new songs from the album every week before its release so if you want to keep up to date, then visit her YouTube here.
Anyways, here is the first track and its called 'The Day The Music Left Me'. It is a really good track and I am looking forward to the album, so enjoy and please support Zarif.

Listen: The Saturdays - Headlines (Clips)

The Saturdays are due to release their third album Headlines consisting of 8 tracks on the 16th August. The album will consist of their new single Missing You, plus 3 tracks Ego, Forever Is Over and One Shot (althought it will be a remix on this album) from their previous album Wordshaker. The rest of the tracks are new tracks that have not been heard from the band before. Check out the clips to the new tracks below:

Order of new clips:
1. Higher
2. Died In Your Eyes
3. Karma
4. Puppet
5. One Shot (Starsmith Mix)

The new tracks sound amazing and Higher sounds really good in studio version aswell. They have been performing Higher in most of the Summer shows they have been doing. Died In Your Eyes is a cover of Kristinia DeBarge's version. I really can't wait to get this album now

What do you think?

Listen: Katy Perry - Teenage Dreams (Single)

Here is Katy Perry's second single called 'Teenage Dreams'. This is the title track of her upcoming sophomore album and is a completely different track from her first single. That doesn't necessarily mean that the track is not as good though. So California Gurls was a huge success and was such a catchy tune. But what is this like?
This track may not be as catchy and I must admit that I was underwhelmed after first listen. But after hearing it a few times, I must say that it is quite a stomper. It is already racking up masses of airplay on the radio, so I can smell another hit coming on...Check it out below:

What do you think?

Step Up 3D: Behind The Moves Part 1

Step Up 3D is due for a release in cinemas on August 6th. Vevo has got exclusive videos from the cast and creators of the movie to give a short video entitled Behind The Moves. It shows behind-the-scenes footage from the film and is a really good watch for all fans that ware awaiting the release of the film. There are currently 3 parts of this little behind-the-scenes videos. I think there will be more to come, so if they become available I will post them. Check the first out below:

The Saturdays Perform 'Missing You' On Suck My Pop

Here is the first televised performance of Missing You featuring all 5 members of The Saturdays. They have performed this song on T4 on the beach but only with 4 members due to Mollie being ill. This song is the first single from The Saturdays's mini album 'Headlines'. The song is really good and I hope it does well for the girls. The performance is actually really good aswell and it seems that they are singing live. The performance was for a new show on Viva called 'Suck My Pop!'. The performance is half music video/performance on stage. It is not their official music video but was made for the show. Hope you like and Enjoy!

Natasha Bedingfield Performs Touch (2010 Do Something Awards)

I think I posted Natasha singing this song before, but here is a performance of her new (promo?) single titled 'Touch'. So if you missed the last performance, here is a more recent performance. The track is really good and I am eagerly awaiting more material from Natasha. This performance was on the 2010 Do Something Awards. The performance was quite good and I just love Natasha live. Check it out below:

Watch: Olly Murs - Please Don't Let Me Go Video

X-Factor runner-up Olly Murs, has just premiered the video to his first single 'Please Don't Let Me Go'. I will admit that I was not a fan of Olly Murs on the show and didn't want him to win, but looking back on it, I kind of think he should have. Either way, he got a record contract and here we are. So what is the track and video like?
To me he sounds very Will Young-ish (not necessarily a bad thing), but the track is a proper corker. It is really catchy and a cool summer song that I hope does really well. The video is quite good aswell and lets put it this way,  the video was released on YouTube yesterday and has racked up 70,000 views, whereas X-Tina's new video has only had 7,000 views and was released a good few days ago. X-Tina has definitely lost it!!
Anyways check out the vid below:

What did you think?

Usher 'Versus' Tracklisting + Cover

Finally some recent news. Usher recently revealed that he will be releasing an EP called 'Versus'. The EP will consist of 9 tracks (more like an album than an EP if you ask me) and is expected to be released on August 24th. Peek the cover and tracklisting below:

1. Love ‘Em All
2. DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love (Ft. Pitbull)
3. Hot Toddy (Ft. Jay-Z & Ciara)
4. Lay You Down
5. Lingerie
6. There Goes My Baby
7. Get In My Car (Ft. Bun B)
8. Somebody To Love (Remix) (Ft. Justin Bieber)
9. Stranger

Listen: DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love (Ft. Pitbull)

To be honest, I am over Usher, he ain't nothing like he used to be. The quality of the tracks seem to be thrown together and don't mean anymore now. Its just the name tag that gets him the #1's. The cover looks absolute crap aswell.

What do you think?

Watch: Christina Aguilera's 'You Lost Me' Video

After much anticipation, Christina Aguilera recently premiered her 'You Lost Me' video. I am in love with the song so I am glad that it was made a single. I think the single choice was to go for a ballad as the record company think this will save her 'Bionic' era. I'm not sure that this will save the era tbh, but you can't deny that it is a good song. The video is a bore fest and probably won't rack up much interest, but on the plus side, X-Tina does look good. Check it out below and let me know your thoughts:

What did you think?

JLS American EP Tracklisting + Cover

JLS is set to crack the US with their first American EP which is scheduled for an August 3rd release. The EP will be entitled JLS (same as their debut album) and will consist of 6 tracks. No tracks are new to fans apart from The Club Is Alive which has yet to have been released on an album/EP. Peek the cover and tracklisting below:

1. Beat Again
2. Everybody In Love
3. The Club Is Alive
4. One Shot
5. Keep You
6. Close To You

What do you think?

Watch: Flo Rida - Club Can't Handle Me Video Premiere

Another video from the Step Up 3D soundtrack. This is Flo Rida's 'Club Can't Handle Me' video which also features many clips from Step Up 3D. The video is decent and doesn't contain as much clips as I thought it would, it is decent enough to watch however. The song is really cool and has got me back into Flo Rida again, but what do you think. Peek the video below:

What do you think?

Step Up 3D Tracklisting

The tracklisting for the Step Up 3D tracklisting has now been confirmed. It seems there are two versions, one which will be released in UK/Europe and the other in USA, etc. Also there are two covers to accompany the two versions. So here are both covers and tracklistings:

Upcoming ITV2 Show Based On The Saturdays!

My favourites, The Saturdays have just been confirmed to have their own ITV2 show. Apparently it will be a series and not a one off show. It will follow the five Saturdays, Una Healy, Mollie King, Frankie Sandford, Rochelle Wiseman and Vanessa White as they tour around the country promoting their music and new album.
ITV2 has also confirmed saying that the documentary series will follow the Saturdays...
"In their dressing rooms, at home and on the red carpets. And in each episode the girls will burst into song to perform their latest hits."
I am really looking forward to this show and I hope it will open the public up to see The Saturdays for who they are and how fun they can be. I think it will also hopefully gain more fans as it will show multiple sides of the group.

What do you guys think?

Watch: Nicki Minaj 'Your Love' Video

Wasn't a fan of Nicki Minaj at first but I have really grown to like her. I actually love this track as well. This is the second single to come from Nicki called 'Your Love'. The video is pretty decent and completely not what I expected. The video is normal and Nicki looks good in it. I am glad it ain't some freakshow video that tries too hard. Yes, Lady Gaga I am looking at you.
Well check out the video and let me know what you think:

Listen: Girlicious - Drank (Featuring Spose)

Before I had another break from the blog I posted the new single by Girlicious called Drank. That was the version without the rapper Spose on it. This version has now been released and is slightly better. I love both versions but this one has a bit of a lead on the other one. Check it out below and let me know what you think:

What did you think?

Watch: Roscoe Dash - My Own Step Video

After a long wait for the full song to be revealed. The song was released to iTunes and then a video premiered on Vevo shortly after. This video is for Roscoe Dash's 'My Own Step' featuring T-Pain and Fabo. It will be included on the Step Up 3D soundtrack and is one of the singles off of the soundtrack. The video is quite good and as usual with soundtrack videos, it has clips from the movie. I absolutely love this song and have fell in love with it. I can't wait to watch Step Up 3D now as the dancing looks wicked. Check out the vid below:

Watch: Monica - Love All Over Me Video (Part 2)

So after scrapping 'Here I Am' as the second single and replacing it with the wonderful ballad 'Love All Over Me', the video has now arose. I absolutely love this song and her vocals in this are amazing. The video is quite decent, and was first revealed last week (I think). The version last week allowed viewers to vote on who Monica ends up marrying at the end of the video. I never posted the video before, but you can actually see the final version now to see who she actually married:

What did you think of the outcome?

Watch: Taio Cruz - Dynamite Video

All Taio Cruz fans, here is his new video for his track 'Dynamite'. The video is OK as is the song. The song sounds like something else I just can't put my finger on. Anyways, decent enough so check it out:

What did you think?

Listen: Bruno Mars - Just The Way You Are

Back in May, Bruno released his first EP titled 'It's Better If You Don't Understand'. I absolutely loved the EP and was eager for news on an album from him. It was later revealed that he would be releasing a debut album  soon, and then his first single from the album appeared.
The track is called 'Just The Way You Are' and is now available to buy on iTunes. Listen to the track below and let me know your thoughts:

His voice is great on the track just like on his EP, however, I find the song very generic and not up to the quality of his other tracks from his EP. This don't mean that I completely dislike the song, but I thought it would be better.

Rihanna Back Recording + New Single For Late Summer

So Rihanna is back in the recording studio and is currently recording her next album. Other news has also said that her first single from the new album will be released towards the end of the Summer. This obviously means that there will be no more singles from her Rated R album.
I am intrigued to hear what her new material will sound like because I got bored of her Rated R era too quickly for my liking so lets hope she comes bigger and better with this next one.

Taylor Swift New Album Due October 25th

Not a massive fan of Taylor Swift. She doesn't really do anything for me, however, I know that some people may be interested or even pleased to know that her new album will be titled 'Speak Now' and is apparently due for an October the 25th release.
The album will consist of 14 tracks, with the first single called 'Mine' due out on August 16th.
On the album title, Taylor Swift, explained the name choice by saying:
 “Track by track, each song is a different confession to a different person.”
I can't say that I am looking forward to this, but I will see what the first single sounds like before completely writing her off.

Watch: Wynter Gordon - Dirty Talk Video Premiere

So whilst I haven't been posting there have been many videos that have appeared. The first on the list that has finally premiered is Wynter Gordon's 'Dirty Talk' video. The song was released back in March and it has taken this long to produce a video for the track. Check the video out below:

I must say that i really like the track but the video just does nothing for me. Considering it took ages until a video was made you would have thought that more had gone into it. It didn't really do anything for me and I had a completely different vision for it. The song is still great tho.

Amerie Changes Her Name

So I am back and posting and I have a ton of updates to do. To start off I thought I would go lightly with the news of Amerie's name change and my thoughts. This is fairly old news but I want to catch up and throw my two cents in.
So, just in case you haven't heard yet, Amerie has now changed her name to...


On the reason for changing her name to add an extra 'i' she said the following to Rap-Up:
“I operate on vibes and intuition, and I believe everything is energy; the vibration of the double I is right for me. Slightly different spelling, completely same pronunciation!”
So, the extra 'i' is all to do with positivity, etc for her new upcoming album 'Cymatika Vol 1'. I really think its the most stupid thing I have heard. I know that I will completely dismiss the fact she added an extra 'i' because otherwise it just confuses matters.

EXCLUSIVE: The Saturdays 'Headlines' Album Cover + Tracklisting

I have labelled this as an exclusive because I have yet to see this posted anywhere else. The Saturdays have finally revealed the full details of their mini album 'Headlines' via their official Facebook page.
The mini album will be released on August 16th, one week after the release of single 'Missing You'.
The album cover and the tracklisting have both been confirmed and can be found below:

1. Missing You
2. Ego
3. Higher
4. Forever Is Over
5. Died In Your Eyes
6. Karma
7. Puppet
8. One Shot (Starsmith Mix)

The tracklisting shows and confirms that the album will have 3 old tracks; Ego, Forever Is Over and One Shot and will be joined with 5 new tracks, including their first single 'Missing You'.
The tracklisting is slightly disappointing but it is only supposed to be a mini album, so hopefully this does well and then we will get a full album very soon. Either way, new songs from The Saturdays ain't getting any complaints from me.
The album cover on the other hand looks amazing and I definitely think this is their best cover yet. I am glad the old logo is back and that some colour has been injected back into their image.

Girls Can't Catch Get Dropped And Disband

Girls Can't Catch made up of members Daizy Agnew, Phoebe Brown and Jess Stickley have been dropped from their record label, Fascination Records, which is also home to the pop group The Saturdays.
Shortly after the confirmation of them being dropped by their record label, it was also confirmed by Daizy Agnew via Twitter that the band have now split up. Here is what was said on the matter:
"Sadly its over for GCC. We have an incredible year! Thank you so much for your support. It was a pleasure to share this experience with Jess and Phoebe. I will pursuing other projects. I don't believe in giving up. Thank you once again for everything,"
"And yes I will be going solo, I've got this far I'm not going to stop now. I wish the girls the best of luck, they are fantastic people."
It seems that all the girls will continue with their own careers, some maybe pursuing solo careers and others doing other stuff.
Girls Can't Catch are known for their single 'Keep Your Head Up' which peaked at #29 on the charts, and also their other single 'Echo' which peaked at #19. They were in the process of recording their first studio album, but unfortunately this will not come to light any more.
I am glad that I actually got some of their songs from the album sampler, so I will have those amazing songs to remind me just how great they were. I am really sad by this news, and quite worried as it seems that no one signed to Fascination Records are safe any more.

Girlicious 'Drank' Official Cover

Here is the official cover of Girlicious' song 'Drank' taken from the upcoming Jersey Shore Soundtrack. The song is not too bad and strays away from their usual stuff but it is very tongue in cheek and shouldn't be taken seriously. The cover looks amazing in my opinion. Peek it below and let me know what you think:

Alexandra Performs New Single 'Start Without You'

Alexandra Burke took to the stage at T4 On The Beach to perform her new upcoming single 'Start Without You'. This was the first time she performed the track live as far as I know and it is a brilliant summery tune. I actually really love it and am glad she has gone for this track for the next single. The performance was really good aswell and hopefully will alert people that this is being released as I think she deserves to have as much as JLS who just get #1 for no apparent reason.
Check it out and let me know what you think:

Watch: Ellie Goulding - The Writer Video Premiere

Not a fan of Ellie Goulding but wanted to post this video for those who actually like her. I haven't watched the video or listened to the song so I cannot comment on it. But since I haven't really digged any other material from her, I don't think I am going to start anytime soon. But enjoy and do comment your thoughts!

Ke$ha And Katy Perry Mashup

It has sparked controversy that ke$ha's 'Tik Tok' and Perry's 'California Gurls' sound similar. Well to make matters worse and to supposedly prove a point, someone has mashed up both songs to show how similar they both are.
To be honest, they do sound very similar when you actually put the songs together, but its up to you to give your opinion on the similarities.

Britney Spears Glee Episode News

Yes, it has already been confirmed that Britney Spears Glee episode is in the works for next season. I didn't report on this as I have currently been all over the place. However, now I am reporting on the confirmation of a Britney episode, some news has become available.

The creator of Glee, Ryan Murphy, has stated that Brittany (the blonde cheerleader) will actually do Britney Spears. Heather Morris who plays Brittany in the show will apparently be singing two of Britney's songs in the upcoming episode.
Ryan Murphy has also claimed that “Heather’s actually got a terrific voice”.

So we shall see a new side of this character, which I am excited about.
It has not been confirmed which songs will be included in the episode or if any other members of the cast will get a chance to take on Britney songs. But the next season is only a few months away so we don't have long to wait!

Glee returns on September 21st.

Christina Milian & The-Dream Split!

So I'm not exactly the know-it-all on the relationship between Christina Milian and The-Dream but I'm going to report this as best as I can. So you may or may not have heard by now that Christina and The-Dream have ended their marriage after a very short period.
They got married last September in a quick Las Vegas ceremony and then split up just months after in late 2009. Milian had their first Child named Violet in February which means that they had officially split before the birth. It has now been revealed that they kept the split private in order to protect their child.
Here is the official statement from The-Dream's rep:
“Terius ‘The Dream’ Nash is saddened to announce that his marriage to Christina Milian was unsuccessful,” his rep told E! News.
“The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter, Violet. They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving forward.”
*Thanks to The Prophet Blog*

What this means now, I don't know. But Christina has been working on her album entitled 'Elope' which has suffered many push backs. Only time will tell.

'Defender' Is Gabriella Cilmi's Third Single

Gabriella Cilmi has chosen the track 'Defender' for her third single from her second studio album 'Ten'.
The track has been confirmed to be released as a double A-Side single with the track 'Magic Carpet Ride' which was actually the B-Side to her first single 'On A Mission'.
The release of Defender, being a ballad is most likely a move taken by her record company to try and save this era. Her first single did OK with a position of #9 on the charts, whereas her second single 'Hearts Don't Lie' completely flopped with a position of #134 on the UK charts.
The double single will be released on August 22nd in the UK. I actually really like this track but am not sure that it will save her to be honest. If you haven't heard both of these tracks then catch them below:

Ne-Yo Shoots Two Music Videos Simultaneously

Ne-Yo is apparently shooting two music videos at the same time for his new album. This means that there will most likely be two singles being released simultaneously. The two songs are 'Beautiful Monster' and 'Champagne Life'. Both songs have both leaked already.
The two singles will be from his upcoming album entitled Libra Scale which is due for a release in September.
When I found this news about two music videos being shot, I also came across a behind the scenes video for the two videos. Check it out below:

I'm not really excited about this era of Ne-Yo to be honest. He's trying to be the same as everyone else and it just ain't working for him for me.

Professor Green Adds A Verse To The Saturdays 'Missing You'

Newcomer rapper Professor Green has just confirmed via Twitter that he just laid down a verse for the new Saturdays single 'Missing You'. The song has already premiered along with the video minus the rap. So I am wondering if this is just for a remix or for the album version. Who knows?
The version featuring Professor Green has yet to premiere and is supposedly coming very soon. Here is the message that Professor Green posted on his Twitter:
Did my verse for the saturdays... Look out for an alternative version of 'Missing You' ft. Professor Green soooooooon!
I actually like Professor Greens material, so I am eager to see what he has produced for The Saturdays. I actually think it would be a good move to actually release the version with Professor Green as a single as this may spark more interest in The Sats. Of course, I have yet to hear the alternative version, but I still think it could work in their favour.
