Fantasia’s ‘Back To Me’ Now Due August 10th

backtome e1276949850925 Fantasias Back To Me Now Due August 10th

According to Fantasia‘s official website, the soulful singer will now release her new LP, ‘Back to Me’, on August 10th. Originally set to hit stores on July 27th, the slight delay is said to be so as to grant the album a better lead-in promotion-wise.

The video for the album’s first single ‘Bittersweet’ premiers on next Friday (June 25th).

——————————————-

While I’d actually prefer the album be pushed back until the start of season 2 of ‘Fantasia for Real’ (so as to maximise promotion), I can’t wait to hear it.

Hot Shots: Kelly Rowland Album Listening Party

kelly listening 44 e1276885433923 Hot Shots: Kelly Rowland Album Listening Party

The music industry’s biggest movers and shakers came out in full force on Wednesday night (June 16th) for Kelly Rowland‘s album listening session at New York’s Hudson Hall.

Hosted Universal Motown, the event was MC’ed by Oprah’s BFF Gayle King, and was attended by the likes of BET president Stephen Hill, Star Jones, Motown’s label head Syliva Rhone ( below in peach dress), Rico Love, and many other key figures in the radio, TV, and press spectrum’s.

Randomness: It’s worth noting such high-profile gatherings are only reserved for projects a label are treating as a top priority. With Kelly having this kind of backing on her side this time round (take from that what you will), it’s increasingly looking like she can blow up on the solo tip.

For, such key figures coming together for Kelly shouldn’t be looked at in a minor light; afterall it is these radio programmers, television networks and what have you, who essentially control (for the lack of a better word) what and who is ‘hot’ and who and what are ‘not’. Considering this, there’s no doubt support from such entities is arguably the most important factor to Kelly breaking the industry (especially the US). Here’s hoping she does just that…she deserves it!

Christina Aguilera Selects ‘You Lost Me’ As Next Single

Christina+ Christina Aguilera Selects You Lost Me As Next Single

Christina Aguilera has decided to go with ‘You Lost Me’ as the next single off her ‘Bionic’ LP. The singer’s new album recently debuted on the Billboard 200 at #3 with embarrassing sales of 110k copies despite heavy promotion. ‘Not Myself Tonight’, the 1st official single from the album, failed to resonate with audiences and peaked at #23 on the Billboard Hot 100 before quickly slipping off the charts. {Source}

It looks that Aguilera’s team has adopted a new approach in an effort to salvage this project. With it being blatantly obvious that younger audiences simply don’t care about what Aguilera has to offer, her label must be trying make a play for the Adult Contemporary market which is generally more motivated to buy albums. While ‘You Lost Me’ is without a doubt one of Aguilera’s best songs in years, she will still face a difficult challenge attracting AC fans as they generally support more conservative acts such as Susan Boyle and Sade. Considering this fact, Aguilera might be wishing that she never got naked and oiled up in her ‘Not Myself Tonight’ video.

Sidebar: I told you so.
