Tinchy Stryder – Game Over | Official Music Video |

It’s being hailed as one of the UK’s biggest grime tunes to date. I’ve been pretty excited about this track for a while and now the video has now been unveiled for all to enjoy!!

GIGGS, DEVLIN, EXAMPLE, PROFESSOR GREEN, TINIE TEMPAH and CHIPMUNK all appear on the track. The fact that Tinchy has gathered ALL these UK artists is no mean feat and shows the strength of UK music at the moment. It’s huge!!

Game Over is taken from the Tinchy’s forthcoming album Third Strike.

Judging by the reaction so far, the track is destined for chart glory… The result is the UK urban scene at it’s finest really!!

Check the newly premiered video out below….!


You’ve got Duffy’s comeback single , The Saturdays Vid With Flo Rida, Example & Jason Derulo’s new videos , Katy Perry Teaser Video & Keri Hilson’s new song all in one big bumper post…

For some reason I’ve got a bit behind with all the latest music out there today, how very shocking of me, so I thought whats better than a big bumper post…? So yeah here it is.

Duffy has returned to the limelight with her brand new song and its a trademark Duffy song in every sense of the word. She’s made a name for herself with her signature pop soul like style!

The soul-pop uptempo track featuring The Roots serves as the lead single from the Welsh star’s upcoming sophomore album “Endlessly” . The album is out November 29th. The visuals are stunning. Wow Duffy is so beautiful. The video is FIERCE with Duffy delivering some impressive choreography. The new era is up and running impressively. You can get the new song on November 21st. Take a peep at the video below..!

The Saturdays have also unveiled the newer edit of their brand new single “Higher”. The second edit features the rapper Flo Rida! Besides adding Flo Rida’s scenes to the video, there isn’t much of a difference, except that they removed the part where Una and Vanessa sang near the end. Check the video out below!

Two Lives’ is the fifth single from Example’s debut album ‘Wont Go Quietly,  The hits just keep on coming and coming. The new single is called “Two Lives”, and IMO is one of the best songs from the album with Example again hitting you with his beautiful, simple and stirring lyrics, he certainly has a way with words. The video shows the difficult side of being a rapper as it gets a little bit too much for him , instead of getting a lift on the tour bus, Elliot takes a time-out to walk home alone. Two Lives is released November 14!

R&B star Jason Derulo or should i say Jasooooon Derrruuuuuulooooo is out with yet another video from his self-titled debut album Jason Derulo. This song is called The Sky’s The Limit and im glad he’s released this song. The song is a big TUNE and the video is pretty much what you expect from Jason as he delivers some pretty slick dance moves yet again!

Keri Hilson’s new single “Pretty Girl Rock” has recently premiered in its official entirety. The track is the 2nd release from “No Boys Allowed”. “Pretty Girl Rock” is very pop influenced but still keeping Keri’s renowned swagger like quality. The song ticks all the boxes , its radio friendly ,  It has a cool piano-driven melody and an infectious hook! Impressed with this song release from Keri ! Hope she does well with this!

American star Katy Perry has unveiled the teaser clip for her new single “Firework“. You can check it out below. She is set to perform the single on this week’s edition of the X Factor.

New Music : Ed Sheeran _ Last Ones Standing Cover Version!

Acclaimed and hugely talented singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran delivers a beautiful acoustic cover of Example’s ‘Last Ones Standing’ – marrying acoustic guitar and sound loops with beat-boxing and hip-hop rhythms. I’ve heard a lot recently about Ed and what I’ve noticed is everything he does seems to be so bloody fantastic! He has talent in abundance and is surely set for a big future!

This track off Example’s album was my personal favourite and somehow he’s succeeded in bettering it which I didn’t think was possible so top marks to Mr Ed Sheeran!

Rest assured you can check out the cover version below! Enjoy!

It’s also available as a free download. You can follow Ed on twitter @EdSheeran

Brand New Video ! Its Example – Last Ones Standing :)

It’s really been a fab fab year for Mr Elliot “Example” Gleave hasn’t it? He’s transformed his sound and it’s really opened the door for him this year!! He’s found the recipe for single success because every single of his has been a hit! No Question! In the video, Example plays a cop, busting pirates who are making copies of his album Won’t Go Quietly.

He is now back on the promotional trail (which he loves) as he sets to release his brand new single ” Last Ones Standing ” – i personally love this track from the album!! Perfect single choice!! Put a bet on folks this could be Example’s highest charting position to date!! Good Look!

And i saw the below image on (check that site out by the way) But yeah it just sums up the way Example’s videos are always a bit out there and funny!

Anyway enough from me check out the brand spanking new video below! You’re bound to be entertained! !

Check out the “Awesome” new cover to Example’s new single!

Example had this to say about his next single! ‘Last Ones Standing’ sounds a bit like an action film doesn’t it?? So I thought to myself “what would the poster for an example film look like?”

And we came up with this for the single cover”

My favorite track on the album, hands down. Perfect choice for the next single.

& The Artwork is just incredible!
