Sugababes Look To Sean Kingston To Save ‘Sweet 7′

sugababes xmas Sugababes Look To Sean Kingston To Save Sweet 7

With the Sugababes‘Sweet 7′ project in turmoil, the ladies are looking to their collaboration with rapper Sean Kingston ,’Miss Everything’, in a last ditch effort to revive the album’s sales. The song, as confirmed by Radio 1, will serve as the official next single from the record.

Though a little pessimistic upon hearing Sean Kingston’s name, The Smeezingtons-produced track is one of the album’s finer moments; hence is by no means a bad single pick (although why ‘She’s A Mess’ is consistently being overlooked is beyond me). Unfortunately for the ladies, though, it’s appearing that with each passing day, their time legitimately looks to be up. Whether the release of ‘Miss Everything’ changes that will be interesting to see. I won’t hold my breath, though.

Check out the track below:

Perry contributed ‘Lift Me Up’ to the LP – a ballad that the two performed earlier this year during the ‘Hope For Haiti Now’ telethon. Check out what Perry had to say below:

New Videos: R. Kelly – ‘Echo’ & ‘Be My #2′

It appears R. Kelly‘s criminally underrated ‘Untitled’ LP isn’t dead afterall…well not yet anyway. The R&B crooner has just released two videos – one for ‘Echo’ (above) and the other for ‘Be My #2′ (above).

While the songs are some of Kelly’s best work in years, the clips have to be, hands down, the worst of his entire career. Besides being recession-specials, which looked like they were filmed AND edited on his cell phone, the whole shabang is made worse by the fact that there was simply no need for them. I mean really, does it look like any of these videos could do anything to save the album? SMH…

Peep the other travesty after the jump….

Amerie & 4Minute Rock ‘Music Bank’

In Amerie‘s latest performance in her mother’s native of Korea, she teamed up with girl group 4Minute to give a special rendition of her song ‘Heard Em All’ on the Music Bank show today. Though many outside of Asia may not have heard of 4Minute, they are hugely successful in their continent, hence making the performance of particular interest for many. See how they fared above…

Awesome performance! Amerie’s swagger, vocals, and look were overly on-point, while 4Minute nailed it. Good stuff.

Ex-Sugababe To Sign With Jay-Z’s Roc Nation?

kesiha roc nation Ex Sugababe To Sign With Jay Zs Roc Nation?

As the Sugababes today confirm our report that they have ceased working with Roc Nation (aka were dropped), fresh reports have emerged today suggesting that ousted member Keisha Buchanan is on the brink of signing with the Jay-Z-owned firm for her solo project.

Buchanan and the rapper are said to have hit it off at the BRITS after-party last month, with Roc Nation set to formally meet with the 25 year old during her current trip to Los Angeles for the recording of her solo LP.

Should such a deal be finalised, it would ironically be exactly the same deal Buchanan entered into as part of the group – which would see her record label remain Universal Island, while Roc Nation would, essentially, A&R/produce the project.

How the tables have turned!

—————————————————————-

Karma really is serving it up! Granted we don’t actually know what went on behind the scenes, for many it simply boils down to principle – you can not dispose of the last original component of a group and expect credibility or support to remain. It just doesn’t work like that. How any label or management team failed to foresee this back in September is anyone’s guess. I mean, prior to Keisha’s album even coming out, the group are being forced to eat some serious humble-pie, with ‘Sweet 7′ belly-flopping and public support and interest at an all-time low.

About the Roc Nation deal; it’s definitely understandable as to why they are actively seeking out Keisha. It is no secret that for many years she was the creative force behind the Sugababes, particularly with the last line-up. Hence, common-knowledge was the fact that she’d often be the first and last at the studio, co-wrote many of their hits, and enjoyed great relationships with several producers – a number of which, reportedly, refused to begin work with the other ladies until Keisha arrived at the studio.

One can only hope that Keisha really serves up the hotness with her solo project and is successful; which if she manages to pull off, will be one of the biggest stories in recent UK music history.
