Tinchy Stryder with his new video “Second Chance” featuring Taio Cruz..

Ok so im a little late on this one but it seems like its back to the “Take Me Back” days with Mr Stryderman’s next single/video release. It features Taio Cruz who’s obviously hot property both in the UK and stateside currently.

Tinchy will be hoping for a much better chart position this time around with his latest single and with the inclusion of Taio could we see more chart success for the duo? I wouldn’t bet against it.

Taio is THE man who’s getting hit after hit, and that will come handy for Tinchy to score his first hit from this new era. So it’s definitely Taio to the rescue.
As for the music video,you see Tinchy and Taio surrounded by tons of beautiful ladies which is your average typical video really! Its one of them videos which have nothing at all to do with the song.

Oh well anyway “Second Chance” is out in the UK on November 7th.

Charts Update : Bruno Mars soars to singles No. 1..

Ok so I keep forgetting to do this… But i am gonna try to keep making this a regular inclusion..

Bruno Mars has dominated the UK singles charts after debut release ‘Just The Way You Are (Amazing)’ greatly outsold nearest rival Taio Cruz to reach number one.

The Hawaiian-born musician, who recently lent his vocals to Travie McCoy‘s top five hit ‘Billionaire’, sold almost double that of ‘Dynamite‘, leaving the former chart-topper in the runner-up spot on this week’s chart.

Mars’s arrival ends X Factor victor Alexandra Burke’s two-week run at the top of the chart with Start Without You, which today drops four places to five.

The highest new entry this week is Must Be The Music winner Emma’s Imagination, whose latest single ‘Focus’ makes it to seven and becomes her second Top 10 single this month after ‘This Day’.

Also charting highly with a new release is Italian DJ Alex Gaudino, best known for 2007’s ‘Destination Calabria’, who scrapes into the Top 10 with ‘I’m In Love (I Wanna Do It)’.

Past the Top 10, three former number ones take a tumble-down the charts, as Olly Murs’s ‘Please Don’t Let Me Go’ falls from five to 12, Flo Rida’s ‘Club Can’t Handle Me’ slips five spots to 14 and Yolanda Be Cool & D Cup settle in at 15 with ‘We No Speak Americano’.

Nestling in between the fallers at 13 is a new entry from Enrique Iglesias and current X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger entitled ‘Heartbeat’, while new Glee regular Charice makes her singles chart debut at 19 with ‘Pyramid’.

The Top 10 in full:

1. (-) Bruno Mars: ‘Just The Way You Are (Amazing)’
2. (2) Taio Cruz: ‘Dynamite’
3. (3) Katy Perry: ‘Teenage Dream’
4. (4) The Script: ‘For The First Time’
5. (1) Alexandra Burke ft. Laza Morgan: ‘Start Without You’
6. (6) Eminem ft. Rihanna: ‘Love The Way You Lie’
7. (-) Emma’s Imagination: ‘Focus’
8. (8) Katy B: ‘Katy On A Mission’
9. (10) Shontelle: ‘Impossible’
10. (-) Alex Gaudino: ‘I’m In Love (I Wanna Do It)’

New Music : Tinchy Stryder ‘Second Chance’ feat Taio Cruz!

Mr Tinchy Stryder has enlisted the help of his label mate for the second time for his second single release from his sophomore album! It’s a return to the formula which brought Tinchy a lot of chart success with his first album,  Tinchy attacks it with his usual style and bars and he’s well assisted by Taio Cruz! Tinchy has proved adept at adapting his styles and he certainly the formula for commercial chart success as he’s proved on numerous occasions in his short career to date! I think Second Chance has all the ingredients to properly launch his second album after the relative disappointing chart performance of his first single “In My System”! Also I think by adding Taio Cruz to the song it boosts that much more as you all know Taio Cruz is hot property in the UK and the US at the minute!

Second Chance will be available for release 7th November, and the second album from Mr Stryderman will follow later in that month!

Do you think the two have another hit on their hands? Maybe?!

Single Review : Taio Cruz – Dynamite…

Recently Taio Cruz proved that Brits can transfer their british success over to the states after his single “Break My Heart” reached number one on the billboard charts. Mr Cruz set the record for the biggest jump to the top of US Billboard Hot 100 for an act’s first charting single. This is a big indication that British acts can transfer their success more reguarly after the initial success of Jay Sean’s hit “Down”.

Dynamite’ has the same repetitive nature as his previous single, ‘Break Your Heart’ and is sure to have fans hooked.
It opens with a robotic beat, which jumps out like miniature explosions, forming the backbone to the record.
The piano mix in the bridge has a trance-like appeal; it forms a crescendo, which builds up to the point where the chorus’ drops, and commands those listening to get moving.
‘Dynamite’, at heart, is a pop track whose dance elements will hoist you out of your seat and have you making your way to the dancefloor.
