With the release of Toni Braxton‘s new LP ‘Pulse’ drawing ever-nearer, the sultry songstress shot not one, but two new music videos this week. The first,  for ‘Make My Heart’ was shot on Thursday (March 11th), while the clip for ‘Hands Tied’ was shot yesterday (March 12th).

Both videos were directed by long-time Braxton collaborator Billie Woodruff,  who has been at the directorial helm of some of the mother of two’s biggest videos including ‘Unbreak My Heart’ and ‘He Wasn’t Man Enough’. {Source}

Of the heard material thus far, both ‘Make My Heart’ and ‘Hands Tied’ stand as my favourites. Hence, I’m glad to see they’ve received the single treatment. One can only hope that the buzz surround the entire project begins to amp up, as it’d be a shame for what is shaping up to be Ms. Braxton’s best album is years to go unnoticed.

After it initially being confirmed that Pop sensation Alexandra Burke would be releasing ‘The Silence’, as the 3rd single from her Platinum selling debut ‘Overcome’, the singer has revealed her team have opted for another song. Speaking on Twitter, Burke said:

Ok.So maybe its time to say what the new single is going to be.. Some of you may know, and some may not. Well, I’m happy with it. Hope U r…

Its.. ‘All Night Long’ Feat Pitbull …xx

Hmm. As mentioned many a time, I’m a sucker for ‘The Silence’, as well as ‘Nothing But The Girl‘, hence would have preferred either of those. That said, I can see why the label would have opted for this – with its catchy, radio-ready nature. It must be said, though; why they’d opt for yet another feature – particularly Pitbull (sorry folks, I just don’t get the hype) is beyond me – particularly here in the UK. That is unless they’re hoping to release the song as her debut US release – which may or may not work. Time will tell…

For those who haven’t heard the track yet, check it out here.

As ever, Mary delivered and then some. Great performance!

Randomness: I can’t even begin to convey how slow of a news day it has been today.

The music world came to a standstill last night, as Lady GaGa‘s eagerly awaited video for ‘Telephone’ premièred. Many however, regardless of their take on the clip, were somewhat baffled as to the it’s narrative. To shed some light on the matter, the 23 year old superstar explained the premise behind the Beyonce assisted video to E! News. Check out what she had to say below:


That Grape Juice are pleased to announce that we will have secured interview time with the one and only 50 Cent! The G-Unit general will be in town in the coming week for the UK leg of his ‘Before I Self Destruct Tour’.

If you have any questions for 50 Cent, please drop them in the comments section below. As usual, only legitimate questions will be considered. Thanks! 🙂

To Be Re-Scheduled 🙁

The hotly anticipated video for Lady GaGa and Beyonce‘s ‘Telephone’ video premiered a few moments ago! Check it out the Jonas Auckerland directed clip above!

Where does one begin?!!!! This is hands-down one of the best music videos of the last 10 years – if not ‘the’ best. From the cinematic look and feel (rivalled only in recent years by the genius of Michael Jackson videos), to the choreography, to the comedic moments, Crazy and Bouncy defied the odds and legitimately lived up to the hype.

If ever there was ever any doubt about GaGa’s position as Pop royalty, this more than dispels it. It is actually official: there is no other artist doing it the way GaGa is, and for that reason she sits alone at the top of the music game…

R&B star Monica and fiancé of two years, Rocko, have parted ways, the singer confirmed on Twitter a few moments ago. Expectedly, no specific reason was given for the seemingly sudden break-up, however Monica did re-affirm the rapper’s status as a ‘great father’. Check out the screen-caps via our girl Necole Bitchie below:

Our thoughts go out to Monica. Here’s hoping they can work through their differences for the sake of their sons.

International mover and shaker Kelly Rowland has been treating Australian fans to many a performance during her current promotional stint in the country. Earlier today, the singer took to the stage on the Australian version of ‘So You Think You Dance’ to perform…you guessed it…’When Love Takes Over’!  This time the Destiny’s Child alumni was joined by 100 dancers – both on and in front of the stage. Peep the performance above…

Awesome! Kelly really has come into her own, both as a vocalist and a performer, and it’s so great to see. Great performance!

Tidbit: With Kelendria’s album as good as finished, the fact she made mentions of Danja, Ne-Yo, Stargate, and Rico Love, indicates their offerings made the final cut. I’m particularly amped as it likely means the previously posted Ne-Yo track ‘Tonight’ will feature.
