This week brought with it the release of K. Michelle‘s new album ‘Kimberly: The People I Used To Know.’

And as if its 21-song tracklist wasn’t generous enough, the R&B songbird has hatched a new video too in the form of ‘F**k Your Man.’

Originally an interlude on the LP, its visual juxtaposes the cut’s playfully provocative lyrics with a vid that glows with retro-flavored glamor.

With credibility and commercial value on her side Nicki Minaj remains at the top of Pop and Hip Hop’s chart food chain.

Alexandra Burke is amazing on the mic and is proving equally as arresting on the dance-floor.

The Brit-belter, who rose to fame as the winner of The X Factor after performing with Beyonce, is currently competing on the current series of the BBC’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing.’
