Peep the alternate cover for Nelly’s forthcoming new LP ‘Brass Knuckles’ (due September 16th):

Interesting. I can’t help but think that the fact none of Nelly’s 4 releases from this album (yes, 4) have managed to catch means the age-old ‘sex sells’ notion being served up here. I’m sure many aren’t complaining, though lol…

Outkast’s Big Boi is currently prepping his 2nd solo LP,’ Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty’, for an October release. The video for the set’s first single ‘Sumthin’s Gotta Give’. I’m liking the Mary J. Blige assisted song and accompanying vid too. John Legend, actor Hill Harper and DJ Drama all make cameos.

Guess Who? Apologies for the slow posting today, I’ve been out and about for most of the day…
Speaking of which, I had the pleasure of catching up with a certain somebody at the Sony BMG head office today in London…
Do you know who it is?
Reality TV star Omarosa has declared victory over shock jock Wendy Williams, following their spat on Williams’ talk show recently:

“She’s been talking smack about me for the past five years and she thought I’d go on her show, forgetting about it? She’s been so vicious, she couldn’t have expected a tea party!”

“I had some expectation that she would try and up her game, but she lowered it. I find it ironic that she would beg and plead me to come on her show and then be rude and unprofessional when I got there,” says Omarosa, who thinks she won this fight with the radio shock jock. “I knocked Wendy out. She’s so used to bullying people, but for the first time, she met her match.” “She definitely has a face for radio.” {Source}


Do you agree with Omarosa?

Ciara - 'Walk On It'
*Confirmed as not Ciara*

Peep this new Ciara track titled ‘Walk On It’, which is slated to feature on her hotly anticipated 3rd outing ‘Fantasy Ride’.

I’m really feeling the production on this one, however the vocal delivery is kinda hit and miss IMO. The chorus and sparse hooks, though repetitive, are the song’s saving graces. Could be a grower.

Hit or Miss?

Cassie - 'Soldier 4 Love'
Confirmed as not being Cassie (too good to be true, eh? lol)

As with all Cassie music, I admittedly greeted this new cut ‘Solider 4 Love’ with skepticism. I’m was pleased to find, though, that the track, said to be from her forthcoming LP, is actually…dare I say it…pretty good. The beat goes hard and Cassie (am I really about to type this?) sounded half-decent. Scratch that, the girl sounded good! LOL..

Hit or Miss?

Alicia Keys Lands Bond Theme R&B songstress Alicia Keys will perform the coveted theme for the upcoming James Bond movie. Check out the report via Billboard:

Alicia Keys and the White Stripes’ Jack White will record the theme song to “Quantum of Solace,” the 22nd James Bond film, which hits U.S. theaters Nov. 7.

The song, “Another Way To Die,” will be the first duet in Bond soundtrack history. White wrote and produced the song, and also will play drums. The soundtrack to the movie will be released Oct. 28.

The score for the film will be composed by David Arnold.

“Quantum of Solace,” starring Daniel Craig, will be directed by Marc Forster from a screenplay by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and Paul Haggis.

Amy Winehouse and Leona Lewis had previously been rumored as the vocalists for the latest Bond theme.

Reports were suggesting a certain ‘Crazy In Love’ singer was also in contention for the much sought-after spot. More power to Alicia, though; she joins the likes of Tina Turner, Shirley Bassey and Madonna as those who have sung the theme to the classic film franchise.
