Having sold a whopping 700,000 copies, the song now sits comfortably at #2 on the US iTunes chart ahead of the release of its video – a sneak peek of which surfaced a few moments ago.
Rumoured to feature Cruz’s new Def Jam label-mate, Jennifer Lopez, the full clip is expected later this week. In the meanwhile, peep the preview after the jump…
Lloyd found himself in hot water late last year when he claimed that Ciara had been changed by fame. The singer suggested that because of how she had changed that he doesn’t “get down with her anymore”. However, Lloyd has decided to issue a public apology regarding his statements.

What do you think of the cover?
There appears to be no stopping Katy Perry; the Pop starlet’s smash ‘California Gurls’, this week, extends its #1 reign on the Billboard Hot 100 to six (consecutive) weeks.
The impressive feat has seen Perry fend off competition from Eminem and Runway Rihanna‘s ‘Love The Way You Lie’ - which has had to settle for the #2 spot on the chart for three weeks in a row now. (Side note: Am I the only one who considers ‘Love The Way You Lie’ uber overrated anyway?)
Other notable Hot 100 movements include Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Your Love’ – which jumps #23-#18, Ciara‘s ‘Ride’ – which climbs #50-#45, and Ne-Yo, who’s ‘Beautiful Monster’ ascends #60-#56.

Tidbit: Diddy does not feature.
Peep Kelly Rowland posing it up for SWRV Music Choice recently. As ever, the Grammy winner looks stunning!
Reiterating our previous report; the release of her hotly anticipated new album has been re-scheduled. Initially set for a September release, Rowland confirmed that the LP – her 3rd – will instead be arriving in stores ‘this Fall’, as she’s still recording with hitmaker Tricky Stewart. There’s also some talk about the album no longer being self-titled. So, as you can see, much going on in the world of Ms. Rowland.
Meanwhile, the album’s lead US single, ‘Grown Woman’, is poised to be a smash – if its ever-rising Urban airplay is anything to go by. Go Kelly!
