Though he shockingly passed away in 2009, Michael Jackson is hardly finished making music. Epic Records announced that they are mining the King of Pop’s vault to release eight previously-unheard tracks on a new album called “Xscape,” which is due out in May. To give the album a contemporary spin, label chairman LA Reid has tapped some of the hottest producers around to work on the materials, including Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, John McClain and Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon. According to Reid, these producers have “the gravitas, depth and range to creatively engage with Jackson’s work.” If this latest album is a success, which it likely will be, don’t be surprised if we hear more of MJ’s unreleased songs for years to come.

Why Miley’s Still Single

February 6th, 2014   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

It’s been four months since Miley Cyrus broke off her engagement to The Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth but the girl formerly known as Hannah Montana isn’t quite ready to put herself back out on the market just yet. “I’m, like, not trying to jump into a relationship,” Miley told W Magazine. “I love my music so much, and I love what I’m doing so much that that has become my other half–rather than another person.” Miley went on to tell the magazine that guys who want to date her end up trying too hard and that she doesn’t want to be taken to “fancy restaurants.” You hear that, guys? If you wanna date Miley, don’t come in like a wrecking ball!

Justin--R-Kelly

The much-rumored collaboration between R. Kelly and Justin Bieber is the real deal. So says Kelly, who did an interview with Vibe where he said, “[Justin] just called me to do a song and it’s hot. He wanted to go and do some R&B stuff, so we got together and did that.” Kelly’s been popping up all over the place lately, appearing on songs with Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga among others. His collab with 19-year-old Bieber, which is said to be an R&B track, won’t be “Trapped in the Closet” anymore as it’s scheduled to be released next week.

Tyler N Stevie

New Jersey-based rock/rap/pop duo Tyler N Stevie has been making major waves across the pond. The fresh-faced pair is currently on a three-week-long Schools Tour to support their brand new EP “Ghost,” which you can hear and download on the band’s Sound Cloud page https://soundcloud.com/tyler-n-stevie. They hit 26 high schools and universities, performing for their hardcore fan base, which have named themselves Stylers. “We were trying for days to come up with a name for the fans,” Tyler told Flavourmag, “and the fans decided on Stylers so we were just like, ‘okay.’” Those are some truly dedicated fans! No doubt Tyler N Stevie recruited a whole new batch of Stylers along the way, and they’ll continue to bring new fans into the fray with performances in California scheduled for November and an appearance at New York’s famed Bitter End as part of the Pop City Tour on December 15. Tyler N Stevie are also working with big-name producers both in the UK and at home to put the finishing touches on their as-yet-unnamed debut album, featuring new music that is a fusion of rock and rap, with elements of reggae, punk, and ska. To keep up with the latest news and music from Tyler N Stevie, follow them on Twitter @tylerNstevie, like them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/tylerNstevie and visit their website, www.tylernstevie.com.

Mariah Carey Fans Have to Wait for New Album

June 26th, 2013   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

MARIAH-CAREY-2013-MELBOURNE-AUSTRALIA-CONCERT_HEAD

Her new album may be called “The Art of Letting Go,” but it seems Mariah Carey is having trouble doing just that. The former “American Idol” judge took to her Twitter account this week to announce that her album’s release date, originally scheduled for July 23, is being delayed. Carey tweeted, “While making this album, I got so immersed in the creative process that I just don’t feel I would be doing it justice to release it on 7/23. I’d rather not exclude meaningful songs. I want to give you this album as it’s meant to be heard.” It’s interesting that Mariah didn’t give a new release date, especially since this announcement came on the heels of a disappointing chart performance for her summer jam #Beautiful. Could the chart-topping diva be having problems behind the scenes? As Mariah said in her tweet, “When I’m ready, you’ll be the first 2 know.”

May 29th, 2013   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

UK all-girl pop band Little Mix landed in the States this week to promote the release of their debut album, DNA, which has been a big hit overseas with hit singles “Wings” and “Cannonball.” Band members Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall—who won in the 2011 season of X Factor UK—greeted fans at New Jersey’s Garden State Plaza for their first-ever U.S. album signing and they couldn’t have been happier with the turnout. “I had an absolute blast today! The signing was amazing, thank you to everyone who came down! We love our little mixers!,” Perrie Edwards tweeted, with Jade Thirlwall adding, “Thank you so much to all the New Jersey mixers amazing first album signing here in America! Love you lots like jelly tots.” Given the recent success of fellow X Factor alums Cher Lloyd and One Direction, we expect great things to come for Little Mix.

Beyonce Cancels Belgium Gig; Sparks Pregnancy Rumors

May 15th, 2013   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

Belgian Beyonce fans were left disappointed as the “Single Ladies” superstar canceled her May 14th concert at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp. The Associated Press reported that Beyonce’s doctors diagnosed her with dehydration and exhaustion and told her to rest instead of taking the stage in support of her Mrs. Carter world tour. Since that announcement was made, the rumor mill has been working overtime, saying that the “Crazy in Love” singer is pregnant with her and Jay-Z’s second child. Whether Blue Ivy is going to become a big sister any time soon remains to be seen. For now, we hope Beyonce feels better before the U.S. leg of her tour kicks off on June 28th at the Staples Center in LA.

Miley Cyrus Planning a Wedding…and a New Album

April 30th, 2013   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

Most blushing brides-to-be spend their time trying on dresses, sampling cakes and generally planning the most important day of their lives, but that’s not the case for Miley Cyrus. The “Party in the USA” singer, who is engaged to Aussie Liam Hemsworth, has been working hard on a new album and a single that’s expected to drop sometime this summer. “All I do is focus on my music,” the former Hannah Montana star said in a recent Google+ live chat. “I think it is like the only time in my life that I have pushed everything aside, everyone aside, anything you know that really mattered and it really became just about the music.” That would certainly explain why she and Liam haven’t been spotted together much lately. Miley seems to have always planned putting her record before her wedding, even talking about it way back in September. So hopefully those split rumors will turn out to be false, the album will be a hit and she can continue “just being Miley” all the way down the aisle.

Justin Timberlake Admits to Stalking Al Green

April 30th, 2013   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

Justin Timberlake can do it all—singing, acting, dancing. But did you know he was also a stalker? Don’t worry, JT is pretty harmless. He was just a star struck fan who really wanted to meet “Let’s Stay Together” hitmaker Al Green while growing up in Tennessee. “I found out that the Reverend Al Green lived down the street from me,” Timberlake told guests at the White House’s “Soulsville, USA: The History Of Memphis Soul” event. “I drove out – 7 to 8 minutes from my house. Some might call that stalking; I just call it driving by to see where he lived.” The “Suit & Tie” singer even used to hang out at his local market in case the legendary soul singer would come by. “You used to go down the store just to see if the Reverend Al Green would drive by.” After all that work, JT did finally get to meet his idol in 2009 when the two performed together on the Grammy’s. Nice to see this tale of super fandom has a happy ending.
