Finally Pixie Lott/Jason Derulo “Coming Home” has surfaced online & Nicole Scherzinger’s new single “Poison” in full , Check Them Both Out!

OH MY GODDDD! This is what I call a feel good kind of tune! This is my kind of song. I’ve been waiting to listen to this collaboration ever since it was announced. But Pixie Lott‘s super-anticipated collaboration with Mr Derulo, “Coming Home” is finally here to my delight.! The duet will be included as well as other four new tracks on Pixie’s upcoming “Turn It Up Louder” CD which will be available in the UK from this Monday, October 18th.

I’m pretty sure that this song will get the full single material. So what makes Coming Home such a good feel good tune then….? Ok its a very cute midtempo tune, nice lyrics and there is a great amount of chemistry between the two singers. It’s just one of them songs that grows on you every time you listen to it. You can just jam along to it with ease and just have a good time! Love it!

Check out the track in full below…!

To be perfectly honest I’ve never really taken Nicole‘s bid for solo success that much seriously. She’s suffered a few setbacks thus far in her solo career and with her debut album being put back I feared she would never reach the heights of her Pussycat Dolls group!

But after she featured on the X Factor as a judge I suddenly found myself warming to Nicole more than ever before, so I just found myself rooting for her and hoping her solo career picks up! And boy am I happy to hear her latest planned song release. If this attempt doesn’t do it , I have no idea what will!! Now, Nicole’s second attempt at solo stardom is taking a step in the right direction with lead single Poison.

It’s a big dance club stomper and it comes as no real surprise that the track was produced by the hugely acclaimed producer Red One.

“Poison” ticks all the boxes and i mean every single box.Poison comes complete with a big killer beat and catchy and effective lyrics. And a strong hook. “I’ve got poison on my mind!!”, Nicole sings. And boy she kills it! I’m totally feeling this 100%. The beautiful Nicole Scherzinger is set to release this club-banger on November 29th. BOY I really cannot bloody wait!!!

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.

Q&A interview with Lolene..

Lolene is a name many in the blogosphere will be very familiar with so i was pretty eager to hear what all the fuss was about. You can hear a lot about Lolene from the recent introducing post.If you haven’t heard the name, you will! This 25-year-old UK native is EMI’s newest rising artist, and with over 70,000 hits and counting for her single, “Rich (fake It ‘Til you Make It)” on you tube, Lolene has proved she is just getting started and has a long way to go yet.. Yes Believe it the british born beauty is well on her way to stardom! She has been compared to the likes of Lady Gaga which is obviously not a bad thing so i thought it only right to find out much much more about the artist that is Lolene! Id put good odds on Lolene being the next exciting big thing to arrive in the music industry!

Your really are an inspirational person, you‘ve pursed your dreams and it proves that dreams can come true if you work to reach them. I love that! Where do you find your inspiration from?
My inspiration comes from my undeniable love for music and art. I am really inspired by independent females. My mother, Joan Collins, the city of London, Kate Bush, Madonna and Cocktails are some of my inspirations.

You’ve received a lot of support online, Especially bloggers, how does it feel for these people to be supporting your music and giving it positive reviews?
I am so undeniably thankful. I never take one blog or person for granted EVER. I do remember a time not so long ago where nobody knew my music and it was difficult to even get people to hear my work. So to have people supporting me is a dream come true. I just want to continue to bring you guys pop juice and more Lolene candy.

I’m really eager to listen to the The Electrick Hotel. I read about the concept to the album! I loved it! How did you come up with the idea for the concept? & when is it released?
You know the concept came from me viewing my art as a building or destination, meaning you come and check in with me when you press play, it’s metaphorical. I have really had a blast making this album and poured my entire self into it. Due to label changes, leaking issues and the general bullsh*t of the music industry, I have decided to push my album back. However, this is actually a blessing because I make new music almost everyday. I am updating the hotel, we are in renovation mode and you can expect to hear it very soon.

I also read that you named the album before you actually made/wrote any songs? Is this true?
It is true because I am a visual person and wanted to make a concept album that was unlike anything else. At the time I was writing with J.R. Rotem and pop really wasn’t that popular. I wanted to create something colourful, neon and amazing.

I understand you’re signed with J.R. Rotem‘s publishing label, Beluga Heights. How did that come about? That must be a great feeling to be signed to an obvious label who have been very successful this year with the likes of Jason Derulo. This must fill you with confidence for your music?
Signing with such an acclaimed super producer like JR was really a defining moment in my career. But truly it doesn’t matter where you are signed or who with, it’s your art and your music that’s paramount. I’m only as good as my last song, and my next song is always my best song and that’s what I like to focus on.


What I’ve noticed about your music is the fact that
it’s always different, your style is always changing in all your songs. It’s so diverse. Is that a conscious decision from you in a bid to stand out from the rest?
I really like to be a freethinker and a free artist, not confined, conformed or suffocated in any way. I think artists are sometimes brainwashed by labels and their teams to remain consistent, which of course to a degree is important. However, I am inspired by so many different genres of music, I am somewhat of a melting pop, stylistically, racially, vocally and visually. I like to switch it up and keep things cute. And that’s just me being me.

So what’s on the schedule for you in the next few weeks/months? I’ve heard there’s mixtapes, videos, not to mention the singles and album! This must be an incredibly busy time for you as an artist? Are you relishing that aspect of things?
Absolutely and it’s a blessing to be busy. I am creating art everyday. The mixtape is something I can do by myself and is purely about the music, so I have taken various songs that I love which range from the Cranberries, Kate Bush, Dr Dre, Underworld, Abba and Usher – I created something unique, so it’s all a bit of fun and I can’t wait to give it to you guys as a gift. We also just shot an awesome viral video to one of my songs, “Radio”. It was shot at David La Chappelle’s studio in Hollywood with his team, and I’m so excited about sharing this with you. And I’m performing as much as possible.

The downside to music must definitely be the leaks? Does this annoy/disappoint you at all? Cos obviously you must want everything to be perfect before the whole world hears it right?
Of course leaks are frustrating but I really believe that they can also be a blessing and a great way to hear songs that may have never been released. For example Perez Hilton got hold of “Too Young To Die”, a song I wrote for Lindsay Lohan. Therefore, people were able to hear something that would never have been released. It’s just the way of the world right now and so you just have to find your rose in the thorn so to speak, and make it work.

Are you planning on hitting the UK to release your music in the future? (*I hope so*)
I have been planning to hit the UK for sure. My record label has been going through some major changes. But I am coming!

Do you have a little final message to all the Lolene supporters worldwide?
I just want to say that without you guys, all this doesn’t mean anything. You really are my inspiration. When I read you Tweets, Facebook messages and letters I feel so connected to you. I just want to thank you all for your support, love and friendship. GO TEAM LOLENE!

So there we have it, Lolene is here to stay people. I think she’s a breath of fresh air for the industry!! Really do.

Be sure to keep up to date with Lolene’s movements so to speak , follow on twitter @Lolene and on Facebook Lolene!

New Video Alert : Pixie Lott unveils the video for the new single “Broken Arrow”!


19-year-old songstress Pixie Lott has become an unstoppable force in the pop world since her first single Mama Do went straight to the top of the UK charts in August 2009. She’s basically been everywhere ever since establishing herself in today’s pop world!  She is now cashing in on the success of her first album by issuing the re release of the album which is to be called “Turn it Up Louder”.

Broken Arrow is taken from the re release “Turn It Up Louder, the album is to include four new songs in addition to Broken Arrow. New songs are rumoured to be featuring the likes of Jason Derulo & Joe Jonas. It’s a bit of a cute video with Pixie looking gorgeous as per!

So then what about the video itself? It tells the story of the singer’s sadness for not being able to let go of her past lover. She searches for his figure among the crowd while memories of dancing with him keep returning to her! Pixie Lott has already had two previous number one singles so it will be interesting to see whether Broken Arrow can make it a hat trick of chart success.

Without further ado, here’s that music video in all its glory: Check it out below and Enjoy !!

The single is out on 11th October and coincides with her upcoming headline tour which kicks off at the end of November.

New Video : US Artist Auburn unveils the visuals for her debut single “La La La”

I should hope that more and more people are familiar with the artist Auburn? Yes? No!. Well anyway the cutie is signed to J.R. Rotem’s record label Beluga Heights, and she’s been burning up the Hot 100 stateside with a quite catchy little urban-pop number called “La La La”!

Auburn , the Princess of Beluga Heights has now officially premiered the video for her debut single “La La La.” It is quite the cute clip. Directed by innovative young talent Ethan Lader, the eye-catching clip was filmed in downtown Los Angeles and features Auburn’s Beluga Heights labelmate Iyaz. It’ll make you want to hang out in downtown LA for sure!!

The 21-year-old singer from Minnesota has been in the studio with multi-platinum songwriter and producer J.R. Rotem (Jason Derulo, Rihanna, Leona Lewis, Britney Spears, Rick Ross) who signed Auburn to her Warner Bros.-distributed label Beluga Heights in 2007. Auburn will keep it all in the family and will hit the road with another Beluga Heights labelmate, Jason Derulo, on September 27 for a Fall US tour. Should be a good year for the beautiful star from Minnesota!!

Check the video out below!

New Music Video : Jason Derulo “What If”

R&B’s hottest new male star Jason Derulo has premiered the cinematic new video for single What IfWhat If is the fourth single to be taken from his debut album.

Watch below:

After three up-tempo song releases from his debut album, Derulo has this time slowed things down a bit with a smooth ballad which is a much needed change. The music video is engaging enough but the whole ‘Butterfly Effect’ theme to save the girl while Jason sacrifices their first time meeting her in order to save her from being car-bashed has been done way too many times. Still, I guess it still beats a lot of videos out there right now right? The video does however tug away at your heartstrings succesfully!!!

The US R&B scene looks quite promising at the moment with Derulo leading the forefront of R&B  stars alongside Trey Songz and the possibly resurgence of Chris Brown!!!
