There just must be something about Adele. Despite releasing her groundbreaking sophomore album ’21’ early last year, the set is still a mainstay on the Billboard 200’s top 10. Threatening to unseat country star Carrie Underwood to regain next week’s top spot, it’s safe to say the album shows no signs of slowing down (already passing the 9 million mark in U.S. sales alone).
And while the songstress made a triumphant return to stage at this year’s Grammy’s, the singer is still very much recuperating from a near career-ending vocal chord surgery. Chatting on the details with NBC’s Matt Lauer, the singer dishes on these topics and more in an hour long special entitled “Adele Live in London with Matt Lauer”.
Scheduled for premiere on June 5 at 8 p.m. ET, get into a snippet of the action below:
With Chris Brown‘s ‘Fortune’ campaign train almost ready to leave the station, the 23 year old is wasting no time prepping new visuals for the set’s latest singles. Having shot the clip for ‘Sweet Love’ two weeks ago, today saw the dynamo star take on directorial duties for ‘Till I Die’ – the next cut to be lifted from the LP (due on July 3rd).
Joined by rappers Big Sean and Wiz Khalfia, Brown led the trio in showing plenty of skin – a sight we’re sure will provoke varied responses.

Cop a gander of Brandy!
The R&B chanteuse serves up diva in earnest in the latest issue of EBONY magazine. As earlier reported, the ‘Put It Down’ singer features with Monica in the publication; and while their collective shoot was fierce, Ms. Norwood brought the heat in her solo shots – which were helmed by Derek Blanks.
For, a number of false starts, the undisputed Rap icon has finally launched her long awaited comeback, kicking things off with her upcoming ‘Return Of The Queen‘ Tour and the well received jam ‘Keys To The City‘.
So, in what will silence any in doubt of her commercial power, the MC has landed a fresh feat recently with her buzz single ‘If You Love Me’.
Indeed, the single now marks her highest ranking effort since 2009 on Amazon’s Best Sellers Rank, which tallies the company’s highest selling paid MP3 products by the hour.
Find out where ‘If You Love Me’ came in on the list below…
With the latest season of American Idol all but over, the Top 4 are pulling out all the stops to clench the still-coveted Idol title.
Last night’s episode saw contestants Joshua Ledet and Jessica Sanchez shine bright and shine loud. Indeed, like the mail-man, these two always deliver.
Watch Ledet tackle ‘It’s A Man’s World’ above, and 16 year old Sanchez belt Dreamgirls classic ‘And I Am Telling You’ below…
Needless to say, either of these would make fitting winners. And, if handled correctly, could restore some post-show credibility to the Idol brand. The show has run entirely too long for the only “relevant” names to be Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, and Carrie Underwood.
