Featured Artist : Jaicko!

JAICKO [pronounced Jay-ko], is not just the average teenage singer, but is an 18-year old musician/ singer/ songwriter and born star who is signed to CAPITOL RECORDS. And is gonna be the next big thing in R&B music!

Jaicko personifies harmony: between cultures, genres, ages, genders. His particular brand of music is set to shove aside the driftwood on American airwaves. Jaicko has built a fan base back in Barbados which is sure to transfer to the States and the rest of the world .  Soon, the rest of the world will have a very good feeling about his music , to coincide with his fellow Barbados music star Rihanna.

Featured Single : Christina Aguilera – Not Myself Tonight

If you haven’t heard ‘Not Myself Tonight‘ yet, all you need do is press ‘play’ below

Personally I think it’s not a bad track , it’s a bit of a club banger and completely different to what Christina has done previously.

The few times ive heard it I havent thought much of it partly because it seemed rather lacking in the chorus department, and also secondly because it wasn’t the genre-busting electro-indie-pop-rock-R&B epic we were hoping for! Others could disagree however..

What do you think of ‘Not Myself Tonight’? Is it what you were hoping for from Christina’s comeback single?

Check out this feature on a R&B duo “Jackie Boyz”

Not many have heard of the Jackie Boyz but their sultry sounds of R&B mixed with modern-day music and their ability to write, sing and perform has paved the way for their current success. They are behind many recent hit songs like Flo Rida – Sugar , Madonna – Revolver , & the most recent hit by American sensation Justin Bieber and Sean Kingston Eeenie Meenie.

Their music will provide you with a new and innovative sound to dance to and their ability to sing, write and dance will prove why their talents separate them from the rest.

The Jackie Boyz inspiration in life is to carry on the memory of their mother through their music and to touch the hearts and souls of their fans.



They have extraordinary talent , and will continue to make amazing music. Below is a selection of my favourite songs from them thus far.

Guess Who’s Back with an album?

CHERYL COLE SPEAKS OUT!

Cheryl put out a statement via Twitter

I just wanted to clear up the stories about whether I am wearing my wedding ring in my own words as this has been going on for too long and is getting boring. It is not some silly game I am playing. That is not me and not my style. There have been many occasions where I have not worn my wedding ring, many of those when I was pictured with Ashley. I find it crazy that people would think I use this as some sort of msg. Believe it or not Ashley is fully aware of any situation going on in our personal lives. He does not need to see a picture of me moving the hair out of my face to explain anything. Please drop it.

Featured Album : Simon Curtis – 8BitHeart

Simon Curtis has finally released his debut album!!


After reaching 8,000 followers Simon Curtis unleashed this album on to us. And after listening to it its absolutely worth the wait.You can download the album for free by clicking on the image above which takes you to his official website.

Right onto the actual tracks on the album , Simon has previously released Delusional , & Diablo to everyone , and if you like them two tracks youre guaranteed to like the rest of the album.  The album is filled with crazy upbeat pop songs with a whole different meaning to them , its like as if throughout the album he’s trying to tell a story via his music.

Theres some seriously standout tracks  like “Super Psycho Love” and “Beat Drop” , they are seriously addictive songs along with the title track 8 Bit heart which shows off a completely different side to Simon, he certainly shows hes not afraid to do anything music wise! The track ‘The Dark’ also features Jay Z , as if the album isnt spectacular enough.

He’s been billed as the male answer to Lady Gaga and with music like this , it is very easy to see why.  Just think what he could do with the backing of a major record label??!

This is the beginning of a very exciting future for an amazing Pop talent.

Make sure you go along and follow him @SimonCurtis

Justin Bieber Fever..

This week teenage sensation Justin Bieber hit the UK for a string of performances and a series of interviews to promote his new single Baby & upcoming album My World 2.0 which features collaborations with Sean Kingston. The hype and attention surrounding Mr Bieber was absolutely crazy. Masses and masses of teenage fans scrambled to follow his every move around London during the short time he was there!”

One very lucky fan also won an amazing competition to be able to meet the man himself.

Then he gave the interview itself where he revealed that he would ‘DATE’ a fan in future!! That’s one way to keep your fan base every growing. Nice touch!

He also gave an impressive live performance of his new single “Baby” on Channel 5 during his short stay in the UK! Check it out below!

Music Video : Chipmunk Until You Were Gone feat. Esmee Denters..

London rapper Chipmunk and Dutch Pop singer Esmée Denters have collaborated on a very radio-friendly song entitled “Until You Were Gone.” The single is for the re-release of Chipminks debut album which hit music outlets on April 19 under the title I Am Chipmunk Refill. The song was produced and written by Frasier T. Smith and James Morrison.

This is another radio friendly track, with a catchy chorus. The melody is sweet and is definitely a feel good song. The only slight reservation is that it follows the same formula that brought UK underground artists success last year (3 clean, love oriented verses with a female vocalist on the chorus) but i suppose it could work to his advantage yet again!!

Nonetheless, good track, nice video.
