LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Brown wants Madonna on his next album.
The 19-year-old crooner says the Material Girl would be his dream duet for a track on his upcoming CD “Graffiti,” which is due out next year. He says he’d also love to work with Coldplay. He’s collaborated with Jordin Sparks, David Banner and girlfriend Rihanna in the past.
Brown predicts that “Graffiti” will be a bigger project for him. Speaking from the red carpet at the American Music Awards, the platinum-selling R&B star said: “It’s going to be my stepping stone from Chris Brown to superstar.”
More power to him. With his undeniable success this past year, Chris really has established self as a force in the industry. It’ll be interesting to see what he’ll deliver third go round – especially with the likes of Madonna and Coldplay being touted as possible features.
In other Bouncy news, reports are suggesting she will debut on the Billboard 200 album chart at #1 with over 500,000 copies sold of ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ first week – effectively debuting at Gold selling status first week. More power to her.
Alexandra Burke – Relight My Fire
Rachel Hylton – And I Am Telling You
It’s a shame Rachel ended up leaving, as this was hands down her best performance yet – a little rough around the edges but still an awesome job all the same.
Though Alexandra wasn’t as great as usual, the judges were right in saying she needs to be in the final. Hell, she needs to win the whole thing! There are many a void I can see her filling. With such a great talent, she has a bright future ahead of her thanks to the show.
The video for the Sugababes latest single ‘No Can Do’ premiered this week. Put simply, the Motown inspired song is head and shoulders above the mediocrity that was their last single ‘Girls’; the video isn’t bad either – although it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. Here’s hoping the song reignites interest in their ‘Catfights & Spotlights’ LP, which hasn’t fared that great on the charts.
What do you think of the song / video?
Keri Hilson’s brand new video for ‘Turnin’ Me On (ft. Lil’ Wayne)’ premiered moments ago. The Erik White directed clip joins an impressive collection of vids Ms. Hilton has shot to promote her ‘In A Perfect World’ LP. I’m really hoping this one catches on, as Keri is very deserving of success IMO. Tidbit: Plies and Polow Da Don make cameos.
Randomness: Is it me or is Keri really underrated in the looks department? She looks stunning here.
What do you think of the video?
Though things remain up in the air about possible extra US dates, it’s great to see Janet catering to her International audience. Here’s hoping her next stop is good ol’ sunny England LOL…
