McLean returns with his latest offering “Finally in Love” Check it out..

Following the recent success of his recent single ‘My Name’, British R&B sensation McLean is striding out from the pack and proving he’s got something with this new offering ‘Finally in Love’. This video received 60,000 hits in its first day of release… make it one more hit to his name ey? Agreed?
A sentimental number, complete with smooth bassline and slushy lyrics, the song does exactly what it says on the tin. McLean sings with his heart firmly on his sleeve about finally finding his perfect woman, he’s certainly not holding anything back! The visuals for the track show him expressing his feelings to the lovely lady. In the scenes McLean shows that not all relationships are easy, and our thoughts go out to him as he is kept away from his woman by something we can all relate to – space travel. Despite the unusual theme of the video (it’s a bit different), it does keep the attention, and McLean does a damn good job at making his emotion believable.

New Music : Tinie Tempah “Frisky” Featuring Labrinth..

This year’s sensation Tinie Tempah debuted his newest track on Channel 4 show Koko Pops yesterday and one thing is for sure it’s a massive track!!!

From beginning to end this track has your head banging! Maintaining his partnership with super-producer and artist Labrinth, the pair have managed to cultivate an understanding with each other similar to Jay-Z and Pharell, Dr Dre and Eminem, cheese and crackers! As the saying goes “If it ain’t broke…”I would bet this will most defintely follow the same fate as the previous single release from Tinie , ie Number one babyyyy!.
With music heads in the US trying to get him on a one-way flight across the Atlantic and the crème de la crème of the UK music industry hustling for some studio time its seems like this 21-year-old  supernova has risen to the expectations and Frisky is an awesome testament to this!
La la la la…la la la la la… FRISKY!

Music News : JLS New Album Update..

Music News : New Kate Nash Album..

Kate Nash lovers you’ll be glad to know she is back with a new album !

My Best Friend Is You is the second album by English singer-songwriter Kate Nash, to be released in the United Kingdom on 19 April.

The album was originally going to be called “Crayon Full Of Colour, but was changed to My Best Friend Is You.

The first single from the album is to be “Do-Wah-Doo”. Nash confirmed on her blog that she filmed the music video for the single on Thursday 18th February 2010,”I shot the video for Do Wah Doo last week on thursday and it was so so much fun! The best fun I ever had on a video shoot. It stars a lot of my wonderful friends who are pretty much amazing. I wrote the treatment almost a year ago, it’s a love story set on a plane in the late 50’s, for some reason the idea has always been in my head.

Kate Nash always has been a beautiful singer so im sure this second album will be no exception , i’m yet to listen to this album but I hope it meets my expectations.

Single Review : B.o.B – Airplanes Featuring Eminem & Hayley Williams..

You will for sure be hearing big big things about this latest rap star. Amazing , Wonderful , Brilliant are all perfect adjectives to describe this guy’s music. His album is dropping April 27th and its sure to be awesome , with features from Eminem , Hayley Williams amongst others. An odd pairing, sure, but believe us, it works. This collaboration from hip-hop artist B.o.B and Paramore’s front woman Hayley Williams is atmospheric and attention grabbing.

Both artists’ unique sounds are thrown into this track, and result in an interesting blend of style – a nice blur of genre. He deals with the verses, she with the very catchy chorus.

Williams said of the track:
“I was given the track a while ago while we were on tour. The guys and I all loved it. They told me I was crazy if I passed it up”.
Already a fan of B.o.B, she was ecstatic to work with the band and prove that the Paramore sound can work under other conditions that an electric guitar.

Music Video : N Dubz Feat Skepta – Na Na

The ‘Na Na (Boy Better Know!)remix features Skepta, of recent ‘Bad Boy’ fame, and is one of N-Dubz more edgy releases. It’s a really up-tempo track with a grime-influenced fusion of R&B with drum and bass beats. The sound is slick and well produced, and the video parallels this. It focuses on the visual contrast of a very daytime, albeit gritty and real London merged with dark scenes illuminated by shots of fire and vertical strip lights. Skepta delivers on this track, his inclusion takes it to a whole new level and he makes the remix without a shadow of a doubt.Impressive for sure.

This track is a great balance of Tulisa’s attitude-driven vocals (we’re loving her new dark hair by the way, she looks beautiful!), Dappy’s characteristic melodic rap style and Skepta’s blistering interception. Fazer doesn’t play a huge part on this version but it’s great nonetheless, and despite being a less mainstream sound for N-Dubz it’s still massively catchy and shows why they got to where they are.

‘Against All Odds’ Tour started yesterday …make sure you check it out when it hits your city!
