With the release of Fantasia‘s comeback album ‘Side Effects Of You’ drawing nearer, the American Idol alum is wasting no time giving fans a teaser-taste of what to expect from the set.

Fresh from unwrapping the video for the project’s lead single ‘Lose To Win’, the 28-year-old stopped by WHUR radio in Washington today to premiere buzz cut ‘If I Was A Bird’.

Without any further adieu, then, listen to Fantasia soar after the jump…


Cherish are back!

As reported, the sister quad have reformed after a four-year hiatus. This week brought with it ‘Going In Circles’ – their first offering from their independently funded chart return.

With the industry being so radically different to the R&B-friendly climate they achieved the bulk of their success in, are Fallon, Farrah, Felisha, and Neosha packing heat enough to scorch in today’s age? The answer awaits below…


Lil Kim took time out of her own come back campaign recently, to help launch the career of aspiring super star Tiffany Foxx.

Indeed, while she won’t be able to do much for her cause on a corporate front, Kim has gone a long way in pushing the Rap beauty to Urban audiences, stopping by at ‘Hot 97’ for an introductory interview with the ever comical, Peter Rosenberg.

Watch below…


Keri Hilson has had enough.

In what has become a constant occurrence since the release of “that song”, the R&B songstress was again the subject of Twitter abuse after posting an innocent comment on the social network last night.

Full story below…


Via ‘She Is Diva‘:

‘Let’s go Half On A Rooooom’.

Excuse us as we fall all the way in love with Khia’s brand new single, ‘Half On A Room’– serving all kinds of grown and sexiness today.

Featured on her fourth studio album, “Motor Mouf aka Khia Shamone”, the catchy cut  sees the Southern belle flaunt  her Rap and singing ability, and has us all in the mood for serious loving.

Sexy times await you below…


This is getting silly.

No really, it is.

Not content with the barrage of insults she faced at the hands of Ciara‘s ‘C Squad‘ after this happened last night, Rihanna‘s life size pet Melissa Forde has taken further aim at the thriving fan base, billing them ‘small’ via an official definition of their name.

Details below…


She’s the Brit Pop beauty with an army of ‘Aliens’ to get their hands on their debut album.

So, as to keep them hooked on her cause until its arrival, she has taken on Drake‘s rising smash ‘Started From The Bottom’, putting her own spin on the motivational Rap number.

We love it, and have had it on replay since we caught wind of it.

Will you though?

Do not mess with Beyonce.

While this is advice that is rarely given considering the star’s light and bright personality, one Swedish music lover has found themselves on the wrong side of the 17 time Grammy winner, over an incident that occurred in 2011.

Full story below…


Much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ segments, readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.  So in a quest to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday we introduced a new retrospective segment – ‘TGJ Replay’.

Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase albums (and eras) from a library of pop music hits.  Today’s ‘Replay’ presses play on pop princess Britney Spears’ 4th album ‘In The Zone’ – arguably her last great stage performance era…


Despite rising to ‘fame’ as the Roxy to Rihanna‘s Pizzazz, Mellisa Forde seems to have convinced herself that the world cares about both she and her opinions.

A little harsh on our part? Perhaps. However, perhaps in forgetting her place as the ‘No Love Allowed‘ singer’s full time shadow, last night saw her take subtle aim at Grammy winning Pop Princess, Ciara and her stunning new cut ‘Body Party’.

An aim, many of the latter’s fan base took offence to on the social networking site Twitter.

Find out what went down below…

Rihanna is on a roll!

Days before she hits Buffalo to kick off her ‘Diamonds World Tour’, the ‘Styled To Rock’ star hit London Town to celebrate the release of her River Island backed clothing line, in the city’s Oxford Street store.

Joined by hoards of loyal supporters, the ‘No Love Allowed‘ singer also partied it up with ‘Six Degrees Of Separation’ icon Will Smith and ‘Home Run’ Princess, Misha B– according to reports.

Fun snaps from the night below!
