Emeli Sande is renown for her soul-stirring ballads.

But the belter is picking up the pace and making a beeline for the dance floor with new single ‘Starlight.’

The Illangelo production, which fuses elements of House and Pop, finds the songbird gushing about a new love.

It’s the first taste of new material from Sande since last year’s sophomore set ‘Long Live The Angels.’

There’s no word yet on whether it’s the lead release from album #3; and the timing of its arrival (see: just  before the launch of her arena tour in support of ‘Angels’) suggests it may in actuality be a standalone track promote that project.

What is certain though is that ‘Starlight’ awaits your listening below…

In a world without social media intense criticism of public figures could be contained in the corners of obscure message boards by PR savvy publicists.

The world, as we all know has changed.

‘Married To Medicine’ is back for its 5th firework filled season.

The popular Bravo series chronicles the lives of group of ladies – some of whom work in the medical field and others who are married to those who do.

This instalment, which launches on November 5th (alongside ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’), promises to make for gripping viewing.

In a freshly hatched trailer, Dr. Jackie is seen dealing with a shocking blow to her marriage, while Quad is still trying to find balance in hers. Dr. Heavenly remains at the center of conflict and cracks are starting to show in Dr. Simone‘s union.

Even the most successful careers are plagued by challenges.

This is a reality that Pop empress Madonna is well-acquainted with.

One of her more public setbacks came with the release of her most recent album, 2015’s ‘Rebel Heart.’

The ‘Living For Love’ led set was rocked by a series of catastrophic leaks prior to its arrival – with both demos and full songs hitting the net.

It defied the odds to open at #1  on the pure sales tally in the US, but was the first casualty of the chart’s embrace of streaming and had to settle for a #2 on the final Billboard count after being bested by the SPS figure of the ‘Empire’ soundtrack. To date, it’s only sold 240,000 copies — in total.

Internationally, the project fared even worse.

Now, the 59-year-old is opening about why…


Nicki Minaj has kept her Barbz in the dark about her new album, spending much of the year adding to her colossal collection of collaborations.

What did she have to say about the project? Find out below…
