Rihanna Re-Thinks New Single; Releasing ‘Te Amo’

riri work e1268672001111 Rihanna Re Thinks New Single; Releasing Te Amo

Spoiled for choice or a muddled mess? Either way it appears Rihanna and her team have been having some difficulty choosing the next single from her ‘Rated R’ LP.

After initially going with ‘Photographs’, the model’s ever-reliable fansite Rihanna Daily are now reporting that Spanish-flavoured ‘Te Amo’ will serve as the project’s next (and likely final) single. To kick off the promotional campaign for the song, Rihanna will be performing it on American Idol this coming Tuesday.

——————————————————–

Though not screaming ‘hit’ in any way, shape, or form, ‘Te Amo’ is admittedly one of the less offensive-sounding tracks on Ms. Fenty’s ‘Rated R’ record. Although, I do find it a little curious that her team switched the single to ‘Te Amo’ (which is likely to appeal to the Latino audience) when Lady GaGa had long confirmed that she is set to release ‘Alejandro’ (also Spanish-tinged) in the same period. I’m just saying…

Anyway, for those who haven’t heard ‘Te Amo’, check it out below:

Janet Jackson On Oprah

janet oprah show Janet Jackson On Oprah

Pop Icon Janet Jackson‘s visit to the Oprah Winfrey Show aired a few hours ago. Though the singer, 43, was there to promote new movie ‘Why Did I Get Married Too’ - along with Tyler Perry, she opened up a lot when questioned about the passing of her brother, Michael, last year. Indeed, Jackson candidly spoke about where she was when she heard the news, the family’s attempted intervention, how they knew he had a problem, Dr Murray, fondest memories of MJ, and a whole lot more.

An insightful, and, ultimately, rather difficult watch. However, one which eases up upon Perry’s arrival on stage to discuss the move.

Toni Braxton – ‘Pulse’ Tracklisting

toni pulse Toni Braxton   Pulse Tracklisting

The official tracklisting for Toni Braxton‘s latest LP ‘Pulse’ has surfaced. Consisting of 11 tracks, the list below is said to be for the record’s UK incarnation, and will be altered slightly for the US release:

1. Yesterday
2. Make My Heart
3. Hands Tied
4. Woman
5. If I Have To Wait
6. Lookin’ At Me
7. Wardrobe
8. Hero
9. No Way
10. Pulse
11. Why Won’t You Love Me

Granted the absence of tracks such as ‘My Ring Too Heavy’ is a little confusing, I’m still thoroughly looking forward to what Braxton will be serving up with this project. For after a few career duds (see: ‘More Than A Woman’ LP), she appears to be back at her creative best (both ‘Hands Tied’ and ‘Make My Heart’ have been on replay for sometime now).

‘Pulse’ hits stores May 4th.

New Video: Janet Jackson – ‘Nothing’

The video for Janet Jackson’s ‘Nothing’ – the lead single from the ‘Why Did I Get Married Too’ soundtrack premièred a few moments ago. Check out the Tim Palen directed clip above…

As much as we support Ms. Jackson, if this wasn’t a recession-special I’m really not sure what is. Terrible. I mean I wouldn’t be surprised if her outfit costs more than the production budget. Sad, as the song is actually one of her best offerings in some time – yet the video definitely takes away from it. She only just gets a pass because a) it’s a soundtrack single and b) she’s never served up anything as atrocious as this for her own projects – and hopefully never will. Awful.

‘Why Did I Get Married Too’ hits theatres in the US today!
