Dressed in a shimmering Gold blazer, the soprano that is Celine Dion took to her ‘Celine… une seule fois’ show in Quebec City on July 27, debuting a brand new song live to an audience of 42,000 fans.

Penned by ‘A Situation’ maestra Sia, ‘Loved Me Back To Life’ was delivered via a moving performance put on by the ‘A New Day Has Come‘ icon, months after Sia penned Rihanna‘s #1 single ‘Diamonds’ and as she continues work on Beyonce‘s fifth studio album, due out in months to follow.

The critics may have panned the album something wicked, but that hasn’t stopped Robin Thicke from pushing ‘Blurred Lines’ to commercial glory today.

Still riding high from the success of its single of the same name, the performer lit up The Today Show’s Summer Concert Series to serve that cut and ‘Take It On Easy Me‘.

Oh Ashanti.

As if her ‘Braveheart’ album wasn’t already a multi-page manual on how not to release an LP independently, the singer added a fresh chapter today after announcing yet another pushback.

If ever there was an act- besides Janet– that the likes of Ciara could benefit from pulling from…it’s Paula Abdul.

The Bob Fosse inspired dancer who first rocked the charts upon signing to Virgin Records in 1987, her run atop her scene-albeit short- saw her serve as the blueprint for imagery spawned by Britney Spears and her contemporary/alleged student Janet Jackson.

Today, in celebrating her work, we step back in time and land in June 15th 1989- the day her third single from her ‘Forever Your Girl‘ was released to the world.

‘Cold Hearted‘.

Produced by EMI‘s Elliot Wolff and marking one of the highest selling ‘New Jack Swing’ cuts to come from a female artist, the single saw its video placed in the hands of director David Fincher and pull from Fosse‘s 1979 classic ‘All That Jazz‘.

Despite many a hit driven effort, very few Rap collectives can say they enjoyed a run as a fruit as Young Money‘s.

Being in the unique position of seeing all its acts (save for Shanell) reach household name status, the crew now find themselves monopolising Hip Hop and outperforming their Pop counterparts, (see Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake).

Alas, the latest chapter to this success story has seen fans read between the lines to find that the once united group may be bidding adieu to the aforementioned Drake, upon the veiling of these court documents.

More recently, it’s the performer’s absence from the crew’s forthcoming album that’s sparked fresh talk of his departure…forcing Minaj to bare all on the supposed beef.

Ever eclectic, Solange lived up to her billing last night in New York, where she brought a soul-filled set to a Brooklyn laundromat (as part of Fader‘s ‘Uncapped’ series).

The singer, whose ‘True’ EP was met with praise from critics upon release early this year, rocked the house with many of her much-loved gems. She also served up an apt rendition of Nivea‘s 2003 fan-favourite ‘Laundromat’.

Peep her showing after the jump…
