Misha B is back!

The X Factor alum is hard at work on her debut album (which will be released under a soon-to-be-announced Sony Music imprint). And so as to tide fans over until its release, the Manchester-bred star -who is working with Missy Elliott on her LP- has unwrapped new mixtape ‘Why Hello World’.

A collection of original material, as well as re-interpretations of her favourite cuts, the set marks a welcome change in the approach to handling contestants from the show. Very much an “Urban” entity, it’s great to see Miss B’s project handled as such.

“The industry is changing”. “Times are different”. “It’s a recession.”

These are but a few of the many reasons employed to explain the increasing trend which sees artists such as Rihanna and Jason Derulo able to sell singles, while their albums under-perform.

Our friends over at The Associated Press have conducted an “investigation” of sorts, reaching out to artists themselves to probe the issue. One of the more potent responses came courtesy of hitmaker Ne-Yo.

It seems Rihanna has been reading That Grape Juice. For, it seems our calls for her to justify her buzz have been answered.

She may still sound like an exorcism, but her stage presence – when she actually applies herself – seems to have sprung leaps and bounds.
