I’m excited to present to you a new artist for you to pay attention to. His name is Quest the Artist, hailing from California. Quest the Artist draws on the likes of “Prince, Björk, Lauryn Hill, Bob Marley, Sade and Tupac” for his influences in music. This’ll give you an insight into his eclectic sound.
He is set to release his first album digitally for free this year. A standout track from the album is a track called “Hero”. Hero is a perfect mix of different sounds all brought together which makes Quest’s sound that little bit more interesting and exciting to listen to. The song has got a great feel to it with honest lyrics and a big stand out melody. He himself stated, “This project was written from the purest truth of my-self and how I’ve perceived this past journey”. We feel this is conveyed perfectly.
This guy has an extremely bright future!

Darin is not a name that many will be familiar with in the UK, but i was pretty impressed when I heard this track. Darin is a pop star from Sweden who featured on their Idol show. Since the show Darin has gone on to become one of Sweden’s best-selling singers, with numerous chart topping songs and albums. Impressive.
OK introduction over! Now on to the track itself, it’s a very big, , belt-y type pop song with the impressive choir feature which succeeds in absolutely screaming out “MURDERER” in the chorus bits to the track . The whole song has a hugely dramatic feel to it. I certainly feel that Darin has certainly created a gem with this track.
POWERFUL in a word! Say no more!
If this is a reflection of how the upcoming album will be, i will excitedly wait in anticipation!
Preeya Kalidas has gone from being a soap opera star to a pop diva! With her debut single “Shimmy” catching on with music listeners, Preeya was asked to perform her song on U.K.’s GMTV Breakfast show. For the memorable performance, Preeya was accompanied by Mumzy Stranger and the two looked hot in my opinion!
Very impressive first performance with Amira showing off some amazing vocals!
Preeya looked comfortable on the stage and caught the audience’s attention. Mumzy was close by in his jeans and stellar shades. Check out Preeya Kalidas’s and Mumzy Stranger’s performance of “Shimmy” on GMTV’s Breakfast Show below!

Preeya Kalidas‘s brand new single Shimmy will be released on Saturday , Preeya has been shimmying up and down the country raising awareness for her brand new track , It remains to be seen whether the public will get behind the track enough for it to chart well.Preeya is already quite well known and will probably have a few fans from her days in EastEnders so she could have a bit of support behind her for this track!!

The Wanted – All Time Low could well be the track that performs the best this week. You’ve heard of The Wanted, right? No? Well, as long as you’re over 18 and a bit of a Twitterphobe, we’ll forgive you. James, Max, Nathan, Siva and Tom have been doing the promo rounds for a few months now gathering as much support as possible for their DEBUT single. We will see whether The WANTED can serve up the goods and prove to the masses that boy-bands are here to stay and in the process we’ll see if their debut single manages to perform well in the charts.

Fugative – Bad Girl – The new single by young star Fugative ticks all the boxes ; Fugative may have just turned 16 but that hasn’t slowed down his determination to crack the UK charts. First single Supafly missed out on the top 40 and landed at number 48 whereas second single Crush fared better entering at 26. Will it be third time luck as Fugative prepares to unleash his summer single Bad Girl? Im not quite sure why he hasn’t enjoyed a Top 10 smash yet but fingers crossed Bad Girl will do that for him. He should easily appeal to teenage girls with both his looks and music so surely it’s only a matter of time? Twitter : http://twitter.com/Fugative – “Bad Girl”
Travie McCoy feat Bruno Mars – Billonaire – Bruno Mars contributes a sung hook just as instantly catchy as his work on the #1 pop smash “Nothin’ On You” by B.o.B. This will be one of the definitive pop hits of the summer of 2010. It is also an impressive lead-in for Travie McCoy’s debut solo album Lazarus. Bruno Mars’ sung hook to kick off the song is definitely the highlight but Travie McCoy’s witty and charming raps add a lot to his song. The lilting, summery mood just makes me wants to go out and head straight to the beach!!! Not a bad bet for the number one spot come the end of the week!!!

Drake – Find Your Love – It’s great Kanye West production with a clever vocal editing and an up-beat tempo. I love the track and it has gathered a lot of support especially across the pond. Can Drizzy Drake do it again but in the UK this time? I wouldnt bet against it!!! Twitter http://twitter.com/drakkardnoir – “Find Your Love”
Plan B – Praying! It’s very much a case of where did it all go so right for London singer / rapper Plan B in 2010. Everythings gone right , firstly with single ‘She Said’ lurking at every corner for months, and album ‘The Defamation of Strickland Banks’ topped the UK Album chart going platinum in the process. His latest offering is a song called “Praying” , will he be praying for more chart success this time around? We will soon seee!!! Twitter – http://twitter.com/4PlanB – “Praying”
Singer-songwriter Bruno Mars is finally getting ready to release his as-of-yet untitled debut album due later this year! He has already scored hits with “Nothin’ on You” by B.o.B, and “Billionaire” by Travie McCoy. Mars also released EP “It’s Better If You Don’t Understand” in support of his recent success. Now we have the first official single “Just The Way You Are” from his debut album. The piano-driven power ballad was produced by his production team The Smeezingtons. The guy could pretty much sing anything , because his soulful and natural vocals are just amazing. Freaking excellent track.
