Usher’s promotional machine is still in full swing. This time singer performed his hit single ‘DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love’ on ‘America’s Got Talent’. Check out the performance below:
Chris Brown is wasting no time capitalising on his now positive public standing. The 21 year old has announced that he will be releasing not once, but two new singles.
Full story after the jump…
R&B-Pop starlet Alesha Dixon graces the cover of RWD magazine’s September issue. Looking good.
In other Alesha news, the former Misteeq singer’s new LP ‘The Entertainer’ has gotten off to a shaky start, ahead of its November release. Lead single ‘Drummer Boy’ failed to resonate with listeners – managing a lowly #15 peak on the Official UK Singles Chart. This coming despite major radio backing, a slew of TV performances, and a high-budget video.
With the 31 year old’s label having invested serious £££ into the project (the follow-up to 2008’s moderately successful ‘The Alesha Show’), Ms. Dixon will no doubt need to stage a water-into-wine esque feat with her next single if her place at the label is to remain safe.
Randomness: I wonder why there was next-to-no fuss made over the fact Alesha and Alexandra Burke released their singles in the same week? In any case, as reported Burke rocketed to #1 with ‘Start Without You’ – which according to midweek figures is set to hold onto the top spot this week.
Usher visited ‘Chelsea Lately’ last evening. The R&B superstar spoke about his new fragrance ‘VIP’. Peep the interview below:
In somewhat of a surprising move, the Sugababes have launched a new line of fragrances. Aptly titled ‘Sugababes by the Sugababes’, the range boasts three distinctive scents…‘Tempt’, ‘Tease’, and ‘Touch’.
Riddle me this: how, when the group’s name is tarnished beyond repair, do they expect to flog these cheap perfumes? Folk wouldn’t buy your album, why would they want to smell like you? Random.
With his new album, ‘Passion, Pain & Pleasure’, now in stores, Trey Songz decided to carry his yodeling act to ‘106 & Park’. The sex peddler performed several tracks including ‘Can’t Be Friends’, ‘Neighbours Know My Name’ and more. Peep the mini concert below:
It looks like Beyonce is getting ready to take everybody back to the dance floor. In a recent interview with Music Mix producer/songwriter Sean Garrett revealed that the dynamic diva is in fact working on making more of the “party music” that defines most of her biggest hits. Garrett previously worked with Beyonce to make ‘Get Me Bodied’, ‘Diva’ and ‘Upgrade U’. Check out what he had to say below:
