Music Video: Marcus Canty ft. Wale - In & Out

Check out X-Factor US contestant, Marcus Canty's new video, 'In & Out' featuring Wale.

New Music: Katy Perry - That's More Like It (Selena Gomez & The Scene Demo)

(Pic Source:

I'm no Selena Gomez fan so its not like I know tons of her music or anything but apparently Katy Perry did a demo track for a song that Selena recorded called, 'That's More Like It'.

The song sounds like a 'One Of The Boys' (2008) (Katy's debut album) reject and I'm not exactly to fond of Katy's debut album (of course there are a few exception on the album).

Anyway I don't like the song whether Katy (who OWNS Selena version anyway) or Selena is singing it to be brutally honest it sounds like an angst filled tween girl (Selena's general audience) b*tching to the world about stupid boyfriends and her period (no body want to hear about when your on your rag lady). anyway check it out below.

BONUS: Check out a snippet of Selena's version below since all the other ones on YouTube are pitch changed due to copyright issues.

Music Video: Dawn Richard - Wild N' Faith

The heavenly voiced, Dawn Richard has literally just released her new video, 'Wild N' Faith', which is the fusion of two different songs, 'Wild N' Young' and 'Faith' both found on her EP 'Armor On' (March 27 2012).

Old But Gold: Mariah Carey ft. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony - Breakdown (1997)

 With the release of Mariah Carey's worst song ('Triumphant (Get 'Em)')  in her entire discography out as I type I decided to go back through her entire musical catalog to find those many glittering moments from her past work to post.

One of my favourite Mariah tracks has to be her Bone Thugs-N-Harmony assisted single 'Breakdown' off of her sixth studio album 'Butterfly' (1997).

The track was produced by Mariah,  Reality star and producer Stevie J, and P-Diddy and the casino Las Vegas themed music video was directed by Mariah Carey with the assistance of Diane Martel.

P.S. If you look carefully you can see rapper Redman make a cameo as a magician thats levitating Mariah.

New Music: Rita Ora - Radioactive

Last night Rita Ora's highly anticipated debut album, 'Ora' was released in her home land of Britain. I've heard most of the album and its kind of a miss match of different genres.

Anyway her fourth single and second North American single is set to be the very current and synthy electronic pop track called, 'Radioactive'. The track boast a catchy chorus, which is sure to gain her another top hit on the North American billboards.

In all honesty the song is good but I think I put my hopes for her new album and material way to high. Her music isn't terrible by any means but its not exactly living up to the hype that is surrounding her. Not to bring up any comparisons or anything but her fellow ROC princess, Rihanna, didn't exactly have a stellar debut album either. One can only look foward to the future, which is sure to be full of addictive tracks from both ROC princesses.

Music Video: Keke Palmer - Dance Alone

(Pic Source:

Singer Keke Palmer is growing up right before our eyes. She's no longer a lil' girl but a young woman who isn't so innocent anymore.

Don't worry she's still tastefully achieving that she's a woman without having to strip her clothing off in her new video 'Dance Alone' off of her her self titled mixtape. Check out Keke busting some CiCi like dances moves below.

New Music: NiRe AllDai - Hella Bad

 (Pic Source: www.

Singer/song writer NiRe AllDai who contributed her writing skills to singer Starshell's first single 'Superluva' has her very own new smashing song 'Hella Bad'.

 I don't know much  about NiRe but I do know that I fancy her song 'Hella Bad' and I'll be keeping my eye on her for more hella tight tracks.

Music Video: Loreen - Euphoria

 (Pic Source:

Powerful is one word I'd use to describe Swedish pop singer/songwriter, Loreen's amazing song 'Euphoria', which won her the first place position in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012.

The video is every bit as magical as the song, which sees, Loreen bending the elements of nature to her will. 'Euphoria' is a must see and a must hear for the year so go check it out below if you haven't already.

New Music: Brandy - Wildest Dream

Check out Brandy's new single, 'Wildest Dream' from her forthcoming album 'Two Eleven' (October 16th 2012).

The song has a very "90's-esque" sound to it and I like it but I was hoping her new album would be more similar to her adventuress fourth studio album ' Afrodisiac' but it seems to be shaping up to be a more traditional R&B album, which I have no problem with but I would've have preferred a 'Full Moon' or 'Afrodisiac' ' type album.

New Music: Ciara - Livin' It Up

(pic source:

Ciara has released a fun tropical sounding summer anthem called, 'Livin It Up', which I guess is safe to assume will appear on her highly anticipated new album, 'One Woman Army' due some time in November.

Her buzz single, 'Sweat' is way better then 'Livin It Up' but I'll assume, 'Sweat' wasn't radio friendly enough to be officially released.

Music Video: Anjulie - Headphones

(pic source:

Anjulie and her friends storm the streets in their trendy tribal gear in her new video, 'Headphones', which is the third single from her forthcoming sophomore album. Check out the fun video below!

Music Video: Mariah Carey - Triumphant

We all know how I feel about this song and that same feeling applies to the video as well.

New Music: Tulisa ft. Tyga - Live It Up

Golden hair  (better as a brunette) British singer, Tulisa teams up with Young Money's very own, Tyga for her summer smash, 'Live It Up'. The song isn't as good as her debut 'Young' and in my opinion the beat doesn't suit the vocal arrangement and the entire song sounds like a mess but its not an intolerable  mess. I can still listen to the track but I def won't be blasting on my stereo. Check out the beach party video below.

Watch the creative video, which features Esthero as a drunken neglectful mother with a crazy daughter who trying to kill her doll, which she (the daughter) believes is having an affair. Check it out below.

New Music: Cinta Laura - Playlist (Not A Selena Gomez Demo)

 A new song titled, 'Playlist' has been floating around for about a week or so and its being labeled as a Selena Gomez & The Scene demo, which it is not.

As usual the wrong artists are labeled as the owner of these so-called demo songs that turn out to usually be from some a foreign (usually European) artist.

In this case 'Playlist' is actually from a German-Indonesian actress, singer, and model named, Cinta Laura. Yes her vocals have a uncanny resemblance to Selena Gomez (I'm no Gomez vocal expert might I add) and the song has a very fresh and tween Pop sound that's synonymous with Selena. So the mix up is pretty understandable in my opinon. Anyway the song is pretty damn good and catchy song so check it out below.

Music Video: K. Rose - Sleep When I'm Dead

 (pic & post source:

While browsing and lurking through one of my fave haunts,, I came across this fantastic new artist names, K. Rose.

I know I shouldn't be so superficial but can I just say that I love her bold and free spirited image/style. I just like everything she and her music seem to represent so far so I'm going to keep my eye on her because she might be one to watch out for.  She actually reminds me of Ke$ha or a young oldschool version of Kelis! Check out her debut video 'Sleep When I'm Dead' out below.

One of my fave new musicians is Gypsy singer, Neon Hitch and literally every song I've heard from her has been pure gold, which happens to be the second single off of her forthcoming album, 'Beg, Borrow, And Steal'. The first single being her awesome track 'F*ckYou Betta'.

The Bruno Mars co-written track, 'Gold' has radio friendly Pop hit written all over it. It's a bubbly track with some electronic attributes about her admiration of a special guy. Plus add a very current rapper on the track and she's sure to end up with a well deserved hit. Check the track below via VEVO.

Music Video: Labrinth - Treatment

Music Video: Robbie Rivera ft. Wynter Gordon - In The Morning

New Music: Shontelle - Custom Made

 A new sassy track from Bajan belle, Shontelle has appeared on the web recently.

No word on if the new song called , 'Custom Made' will appear on her third upcoming album or not.

 The song is pretty dope and I'm liking the Pop R&B vibe the song has, which in my opinion is a pretty radio friendly sound if she were planning on officially releasing the song.

New Music: Robbie Rivera ft. Wynter Gordon - In The Morning

I first heard 'In The Morning' on Wynter Gordon's debut album/EP, 'With The Music I Die' (June 28th 2011) but you can now check out the producer of the track, Robbie Rivera's remix version, which (if I'm correct) appears on his album, 'Dance Or Die'(2011).

I much rather prefer Wynter's album version and I'll post both version for you to hear below.

BONUS: Here's Wynter's original and better version in my opinon below.

Singer Battle: Cheryl Cole Vs. Lana Del Rey - Ghetto Baby

(Pic source:

So by now you've heard me harp on and on about how amazing Cheryl's new album, 'A Million Lights' (One of the best albums of the year so far) is and one of the highlights of the album is her Lana Del Rey penned 'Ghetto Baby'.

Well a few days ago the original demo with Lana's vocals hit the web and it was inevitable that I'd compare both versions and put them in an all out audio brawl. Let the battle begin!

Cheryl Cole - Ghetto Baby

Lana Del Rey - Ghetto Baby (Demo)

THE WINNER: Well Cheryl Cole is the obvious wiiner! But Cheryl only won because her version is a finalized mastered studio version while Lana's version is a demo, which seems incomplete. Demo's aren't suppose to sound better then the final product so this was kind of an unfair battle to begin with. I will say Lana's vocals don't sound as good as Cheryl's but once again it's a demo, which hasn't been through all the studio magic.

Do you disagree with me? Or maybe you Agree with me? Either way VOTE below and decide who YOU think deserves to win this battle
