Let’s be honest, save for contributions from Rita Ora, Labrinth (pictured above) and Emeli Sande, 2012 had very little to say when it came to UK albums.

However, by way of US chart toppers Nicki Minaj & Rihanna, the year saw the nation’s charts lit up by a number of commercially potent imports, which make up the bulk of the Official Charts Company’s ‘Highest Selling 2012 Releases‘ lists.

 Her single ‘Diamonds‘ may be riding on Billboard’s R&B/Hip Hop chart, but Rihanna is already in the early stages of dethroning herself with its strip club ready follow up, Pour It Up‘.

This week, it holds the record for being the Greatest Gainer on R&B/Hip Hop radio when it came in at #31 on the chart, though unlikely to rejuvenate US interest in its home, ‘Unapologetic’, which is now well on its way to leaving the iTunes 100.

However, it isn’t all bad news for the ‘Battleship’ actress. For, today saw the release of her very own commercial, shot to boost trade and tourism in her homeland of Barbados.

There’s no doubt about it, if 2013 is half as successful for Miguel as 2012 was, he’s well on his way to becoming R&B’s leading male contender.

Watching his latest LP ‘Kaleidoscope Dream‘ sell at a more consistent rate than Frank Ocean‘s ‘Channel Orange‘, the ‘Adorn’ singer- with heavy backing from his label- seems well on his way to ‘Beyonce-ing’ his field, despite forthcoming competition from Roc Nation‘s Elijah Blake.

Now find out why radio listeners have found both he and his ‘Dream’ inescapable below…

Season 3 of The Voice may have wrapped just a few weeks ago, however production for season 4 is already underway!

The hit NBC show, which now airs twice yearly (Spring and Fall cycles), is welcoming Pop forces Usher and Shakira to its panel of Coaches.

Indeed, as earlier reported, the pair have been tapped to replace departing judges Cee-Lo Green and Christina Aguilera – who are taking a season (or so) off to re-engage with their musical mainstays.

With the New Year upon us and the show’s March return looming, producers have today unveiled new promotional shots for the new panel.

Randomness: Interestingly, Shakira is heavily pregnant with her first child. And while the Columbian star is reportedly due any day now, it’ll certainly be interesting to see how this factors into the upcoming series. For, though premiering on March 25th, filming is either underway already or will be in the next few weeks.

Much like Bruce Springsteen before him, Drake‘s unique ability to understand and articulate the male voice has made one of his genre’s most valued assets.

A healthier alternative to the superficial and at times mindless offerings oft served up by Hip Hop, his arrival on the scene and subsequent dominance over it marks- as far as we’re concerned- one of the best things to happen for a culture sullied with violence, jail time and short lived successes.

Now, as further proof of the role he plays in moulding the minds of his fans for the better, he has been credited for inspiring a class of hopeless 9th graders and their struggling teacher.
