A very revealing Keyshia Cole appears on the cover of the December issue of VIBE magazine. Though the pic is overly airbrushed, she doesn’t look bad – at all. Keyshia’s new album ‘Just Like You’ is in stores now.

UK singing sensation Leona Lewis really appears to be on the road to super stardom. Her current single ‘Bleeding Love’ stormed to the top of the Official UK Singles Chart today with sales in excess of 220,000. In the wake of her chart success, Leona’s next single ‘Angel’ has surfaced. Prodcued by Stargate, the song’s sound is very similar to the many overplayed ‘Irreplaceable’-type songs that have been making the rounds as of late. The track isn’t bad, however it lacks originality. I expected better. Anyway, Leona’s highly-anticipated debut album ‘Spirit’ is set to hit stores in the UK on November 12th and the US early next year.

R&B star Keyshia Cole recently appeared on the Tyra Banks show. The interview was pretty interesting; Tyra questioned Keyshia on a number of things including the constant comparisons to Mary J. Blige as well her personal life. Check out the second part of the interview below:

Nicole Scherzinger has really been hitting the promo trail as of late in support of her forthcoming album ‘Her Name Is Nicole’ – this time performing a set for AOL Sessions. Check out the vids of her performances below: –

By now, I’m sure most of you know how I feel about Nicole and her project. So…

It has been confirmed that singer Kelis has been released her record label Jive. The ‘Milkshake’ singer saw the most success with her 2003 album ‘Tasty’, however her most recent effort, 2006’s ‘Kelis Was Here’, didn’t fare too well on the charts. “She’s a different kind of artist — very image and style-driven. It’s either something you get or you don’t” said her manager Jeff Rabhan. He went on to confirm that she is currently shopping around for a new ‘non-traditional’ deal. {Source}

I’m surprised, yet not at the same time. Despite her last album pretty much tanking, she still released three singles (and videos) and toured as well. – so I assumed the label support was there. Here’s hoping she gets picked up by another label soon.

With Mario set to drop his third studio LP ‘Go!’ on November 27th, an exclusive new track titled ‘If’ has surfaced. Upon first listen, some of you will recognize the lyrics from Beyonce’s rendition of the song (from the ‘B’Day Deluxe), as well as the beat – which samples Trey Songz current single ‘Can’t Help But Wait’. Though the track will not be featured on the album, it’s still definitely worth a listen. Be on the lookout for a potential Mario feature in the coming weeks.

Kelly Rowland touched down in London yesterday for a series of PA’s across the city. She first performed a set at EA’s ‘Be The One – X League’ event last night in Trafalgar Square.
Woah is all I can say! The catwoman-esque outfit is definitely working for her. Ms. Kelly also made an appearance today at Virgin Megastores on Oxford Street to sign copies of ‘The Sims 2: Castaway’.
Like myself, you’re probably wondering why she’s signing copies of a game instead of her album?? Rumor has it, she has inked a partnership with EA Games – which would explain the performance at the showcase, as well as promoting their product.
In other Kelly news, the singer confirmed that she has recorded a track with Gym Class Heroes and the track will be released as a single here in the UK. Hopefully things start to look up for Kelly’s career from here on out.

Check out this new promotional pic for R&B collective Cherish. The sisters are currently prepping the release of their sophomore effort ‘The Truth’ – which is set to drop March 28th 2008. I’m guessing this pic is indicative of the look they’re going for this time around; I’m liking it.
In other news, it has been confirmed that ‘Killa’ (ft. Yung Joc) will be the first track to be lifted from their new CD.

What do you think of the pic?

The video for Sean Paul’s new single ‘Watch Dem Roll’ surfaced earlier this week. I can’t say I’m a fan of the song – particularly as a single. Considering Sean usually delivers with his first singles, the song is kinda so-so, as is the Rich Newey directed video.

R&B star Ashanti gave a rendition of ‘God Bless America’ at opening game at the MLB World Series in Boston this past Wednesday (October 25th). Till this day, I never understand why people argue that ‘Ashanti can’t sing’; she nailed this performance. Thinking about it, I guess it’s because her true vocal ability doesn’t always transcend onto her records. Here’s hoping she comes with ‘it’ on her new CD ‘The Declaration’ (due February 2008).

Def Jam’s Rihanna is currently touring in support of her ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ album. On September 24th, the Bajan star hit Montreal’s Bell Center in Canada for a show and MSN Music was there to tape the event. By clicking the link at the bottom of this post, you can watch the entire concert – which was made available online yesterday .

About the concert, I thought she did ‘ok’. Call me a hater or whatever, but it lacked the energy of a show I would spend my money on. Still, I’m sure there are those who are feeling what she has to offer…

Singing sensation Leona Lewis is hitting the promotional trail hard this week to support the release of her new single ‘Bleeding Love’. She stopped by daytime talk show ‘Loose Women’ earlier on today to perform the track. Though not initially a fan of the song, I’m liking it more and more each time performs it – vocally she was overly on-point. A tidbit: though, I don’t usually care for such things, her outfit had to be a joke, right?

In other news, ‘Bleeding Love’ is set to become the fastest-selling UK single this year, after going on-sale this Monday. The track is guaranteed the #1 spot come Sunday when the official numbers are announced.
