It’s been a short while since we’ve heard anything musically from powerhouse vocalist Tiffany Evans. However, the 18 year old has resurfaced under management by Mathew Knowles and Music World (I know…)
While Evans records her sophomore LP (which is set to be released by Columbia Records), it appears her talents are being synchronised with the Knowles’ other business ventures. Indeed, her recently recorded take on Whitney Houston‘s version of ‘I’m Every Woman’ features on the official website of Tina Knowles new affordable clothing range ‘Miss Tina’.
Take a listen to Tiffany’s cover below…
MTV recently caught up with Nicki Minaj on the set of the video for her new single ‘Check It Out’. The will.i.am assisted cut is set to serve as the third official single to be lifted from Minaj’s hotly anticipated debut LP ‘Pink Friday’ (which hits stores on November 23rd).
As usual, Minaj serves up the weird and wacky in this new clip. Check out the preview after the jump…
With Jazmine Sullivan currently putting the finishing touches to her sophomore LP ‘Love Me Back’ (due November), the set’s second single has surfaced. Titled ’10 Seconds’, the soulful mid-tempo is the aptest of follow-up’s to its predecessor ‘Holding You Down’.

Many of our UK readers will be familiar with newcomer Labrinth. Having taken the British charts by storm with his production efforts on Tinie Tempah‘s smashes ‘Pass Out’ and ‘Frisky’, the 21 year old East Londoner, real name Timothy McKenzie, is striking out on his own as an artist.
Having captured the attention of a certain Simon Cowell, Labrinth signed to the mogul’s Syco label (over at Sony Music) this summer. In the process the eclectic talent became not only the label’s first non-TV-show signing in six years, but also the first to be signed to a lucrative deal which will see him write, produce, and nurture other talent on the label too. Impressive!
Labrinth released his debut single ‘Let The Sun Shine’ today, which looks set to be a hit. Check out its accompanying video below and let us know what you think:
