Roc Nation star Rita Ora continued her US push tonight with a show-stopping performance on ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’.

The high-profile slot is the latest in a long line of American dates lined up for the Londoner, who is presently on US promotional tour. A trek we assume is more about generating awareness rather than sales, given that the Stateside version of her debut LP ‘Ora’ arrives next year with all-new songs.

Watch Ora soar with her British chart-topper ‘R.I.P’ below…

‘Your Body’ beauty Christina Aguilera is set to unveil her latest body of work through ‘Lotus’ – her highly anticipated follow-up to 2010’s ‘Bionic’.

Due November 13th,  Aguilera has already teased fans with the visual to ‘Body’, already racking up millions of views (and counting) on the web.

But, for those still unsure if they’ll be adding ‘Lotus’ to their collection, the ‘Genie In A Bottle’ songstress is granting access to her album via an assortment of snippets.

Your listening pleasure awaits below:

‘Crazy’ singer Cee Lo Green is calling recent sexual assault allegations against him just that – crazy.  Indeed, the ‘The Voice’ judge has been the center of sexual assault charges brought against him by a Los Angeles woman in recent weeks.

While Green vehemently denies being anywhere near the location in question, the eclectic singer’s camp is also defending him claiming to have never seen the hitmaker act out physically toward anyone.  However, this contradicts reports that surfaced in 2001 when the ‘Forget You’ crooner was arrested for misdemeanor charges of “simple assault (family violence) and disorderly conduct” against his then wife.

The action allegedly caused the two’s divorce in 2004 where the ex-wife cited “mental and physical cruelty”.

As ever, That Grape Juice will give you more on this story as it develops (source).

Your thoughts?

For an artist as talented as JoJo, it beggars belief that she is still climbing the ranks. Sadly, despite being more than qualified  for chart superstardom, the Pop powerhouse has seen industry politics delay the release of her long awaited 3rd album.

However, proving that her voice can’t be silenced, the Boston beauty has announced that she is cooking up another mixtape for her fans.

Details after the jump…

Ironically, taking her so so vocals into account, Rihanna‘s global success is and always has been routed from her music.

Sure, though her ‘wild and stylishly reckless’ gimmick may keep her more loyal fans tuned in, it’s her ever infectious brand of premium Pop that leaves the world coming back for more time and again.

Unfortunately for her, the same can’t be said for her endeavors outside of the singles chart, forcing many to question how lucrative her brand actually is, when compared to those held by her closest rival, Beyonce.

Not sure what we mean?

Her reality show ‘Styled To Rock’ has been axed, following record breaking ratings lows and a production billed ‘nightmarish’.

Mariah Carey got in the festive spirit last week, celebrating Halloween with her husband Nick Cannon and ‘Dem Babies‘.

Dressed as Goldilocks, the icon was joined by her three bears in the snap above which arrived earlier on today, and marks the latest intimate pic she has shared with fans.
Last Halloween, she shared even sweeter pictures of the family dressed as Disney characters, ‘The Incredibles’.

Let’s hope she spreads just as much as love when ‘American Idol’ hits US screens in January.

Here’s what it is:

Brandy, by way of fan support, renewed public interest and the strength of her material, stands tall as one of 2012’s most celebrated acts.

Welcoming the release of her R&B driven studio album ‘Two Eleven’ two weeks ago, both she and her team went to great lengths before its launch to ensure the project debuted favorably in the US.

Now in its second week of release, ‘Eleven‘ holds a top ten position at #10, with 20,879 sold since last week , pushing its total US figure to 87,735 units sold. This now means it’s only 12,265 copies away from hitting the 100,000 mark- a commendable feat to be scored three weeks in.

Of course, while that may seem a little abysmal to some, we’d say it sets the tone for what is set to become a slow but consistent sales push for the project, which some are now making the mistake of writing off.

So, in a climate seemingly hostile to Contemporary R&B, just how could Team Brandy push ‘Two Eleven‘?

Our answer to that question below…

Believe it or not, there are only two weeks left until the release of ‘Unapologetic’, the brand new album by Rihanna.

However, for reasons currently unknown, the project’s media push has been a little…slow, with some fans concerned this may tell many a tale upon chart entry.

Well, they should no worry no more. For, her label Island Def Jam have announced the launch of a promotional tour that will dominate many a media outlet.

With exactly two weeks remaining until Christina Aguilera‘s ‘Lotus’ LP arrives in stores, promo shots for the hotly anticipated set have begun to treacle out.

And while the shot above only adds to our anticipation for the album, we’re still scratching our heads as to the “strategy” with the record’s push.

After all, while it’s clear Christina has a deal that contracts her to perform new material on The Voice first (much like fellow coach Adam Levine), the silence surrounding the push for ‘Your Body’ and ‘Lotus’ moreover is deafening (AMA performance, aside).

Here’s hoping it’s more a case of “calm before the storm”, as all signs are pointing to the material on ‘Lotus’ being hot tamale and it’d be criminal if it wasn’t given the premium push it deserves.

Your thoughts?

With Lady GaGa and Beyonce readying chart returns for 2013, it’s safe to say the pressure’s on for Rihanna to score big with her seventh studio album ‘Unapologetic‘.

So, as to ensure the LP moves enough copies to land her first US #1, she has enlisted NBC’s  ‘Saturday Night Live‘ to help push the project, due out November 19th.
