Heidi Range: Sugababes Are NOT Splitting!

Heidi Range has put rumours to rest on the future of the Sugababes.

Reports of a split started after rumours that the band had been dropped from their US label Roc Nation. However, a recent message posted on the group's official website stated: "We have never been 'signed' to Roc Nation for a scheduled album release in America."

Range, who is currently promoting a new fitness class with Virgin, has now confirmed the band will not split up. She said: "That rumour has been flying around for the past nine years!

"If we were going to split up I'd just come out and say it but we're actually having a great time. We're off to India next week and then
we're back in the studio to record some new tracks.

Rare Rolling Stones track released for Record Store Day

A recently unearthed Rolling Stones track is to be released as a limited edition 7" single for Record Store Day.

Plundered My Soul was recorded during sessions for the band's sprawling 1972 double album Exile On Main Street, but was left to languish in the vaults.

The group rediscovered the track while preparing a reissue of the album, which is due to be released on 18 May.

Just 1,000 copies have been pressed for Record Store Day, 17 April, which aims to promote independent music stores. The Beatles, Pet Shop Boys, Lily Allen and Goldfrapp are also releasing limited edition recordings in aid of the event, which is now in its fourth year.

Britney Spears 'Dramatic' Leaks

Okay, so this isn't entirely news seeing as this leaked years ago, however the difference this time is that it doesn't have that leech Heidi Montag throwing up all over it. This is rumoured to have been recorded in 2006 as part of the Blackout sessions, but then the direction of the album changed and it didn't make the cut. There is a rather annoying, very invasive tag attached to the song, but hopefully a non-tagged version will surface soon enough.

LQ clip of Rihanna's song with David Guetta

Okay, so I'm kicking off today with something quite exciting; as you may know if you have been reading music blogs, David Guetta is working with Rihanna for a new album/re-release of Rated R. Well while on a French radio show yesterday, Guetta premiered a short LQ snippet of this track.

I questioned at first whether it is actually Rihanna singing and I'm still not sure, although many claim it definitely is her. It has a very Disturbia-esque vibe to it which I am pleased about as that is my favourite song of hers and the genre which I feel is most popular with radio at the moment.

ChartStuff is back!

Please accept my apologies for the long hiatus from blogging. I have had one or two things going on and unfortunately haven't found the time to add to this blog. However, I have hit the ground running and will be returning to regular updates on this page, starting now!

Kanye West (Ft.Young Jeezy) 'Amazin'

Pretty standard Mr. West. Word on the grape vine is that his next single, Paranoid, will include a verse from Rihanna.

Global Music Sales Tumble 8%

Global music sales fell by more than 8% to $18.42bn (£12.67bn) in 2008, according to the body that represents the record industry worldwide.

Physical formats like CDs and vinyl performed particularly badly - dropping by 15% globally and 31% in the US. Sales of digital formats like MP3s and ringtones grew by 24% worldwide but failed to make up the shortfall.

This is partly due to the lower price of downloads, but also because people tend not to buy entire albums online. According to figures released by the Official Charts Company earlier this year, Only 10.3m albums were downloaded in the UK last year, compared to 110.3m singles, or individual tracks.

New Basement Jaxx

They are back with a hot new single called Raindrops, I've had quick listen and it seems pretty decent, but it's not immediately grabbing. With summer jsut around the corner, I can see this going top 10.

Download / Raindrops

Eminem's Next Single

Eminem's rumoured second single from upcoming album Relapse is called 3am and leaked in full onto the internet yesterday. If you weren't keen on We Made You, then I doubt you'll like this either.

Download / 3am

Ciara 'Fantasy Ride'

Until The Black Eyed Peas release The E.N.D, this is going to be the best album of the year. The retail copy of the album finally leaked and you can download below. Please make sure you buy it on May 5th. Work and I Don't Remember are the best tracks on the album.

Eminem - 'Relapse' Cover

Peep the official album cover for, what is being billed as, Eminem's big comeback 'Relapse' (due May 19th). Great cover; that said, I'm thinking, judging by the material heard thus far, that the cover may very well be the best thing about the record.

Hush Hush;Hush Hush Details

In case you weren't aware, The Pussycat Dolls' next single is Hush Hush; Hush Hush. Not a good choice, but this era has been a completemess for them; the Bottle Pop video was a complete waste of time as they seem to have ditched it in favour of Jai Ho! Will we get a video for Hush Hush? Also, notice they are alwyas PCD featuring Nicole Scherzinger now? I think they are trying to lift her profile for a potential solo release at some point.

Anyway, here is the promo CD download below for the release, most of you will have the original cut, but this also includes the Hush Hush/ I WIll Survive mash up from Doll Domination 2.0

Two Fantasy Ride Leaks

Here are the final two previously unheard tracks to leak from Ciara's upcoming release Fantasy Ride. This means we now have every single track in one form or another, but some may still be in demo form. The first track is called Like A Surgeon and seems to be fully mastered, as does the second titled Tell Me What Your Name Is.

Download / Like A Surgeon

This album is so insanely good, but I am so disappointed that she pretty much realeased tracks that we already had. I guess it's my own fault for listening to leaks, and one of the major downsides of file sharing, that you get to hear unfinished, inferior works instead of the final product.

New David Guetta (Ft. Kelly Rowland)

Here is a really hot summer song by David Guetta featuring Kelly Rowland, this will be smacked hard on the radios over the next few months. It's a bit different for Kelly, but she definitely pulls it off.

Gaga covers Coldplay

Lady Gaga decided to cover Colplay's Viva La Vida. It's a bit of a hot mess, but her hardcore fans will probably enjoy it. She fucks up a few times, but takes the piss of herself so it's quite funny. She did it for Radio 1's Live Lounge so it's acoustic, but nevertheless in HQ.

Jamie Foxx Next Single

Here is Jamie Foxx's next single, it is titled I Don't Need It and it features Timbaland. I think he needs to slow down a bit, Blame It (Ft. T-Pain) is still sitting pretty at #5 on US Billboard Hot 100 and shows no sign of dropping. This song isn't as good as Blame It, has all the hallmarks of a decent Timbaland production.

UPDATE: Okay this song is a MAJOR grower

BEP - Boom Boom Pow Video Premiere

I'm a bit dissapointed; it's not awful, but it's not particularly innovative either. Oh well it's good to see fergie back on our screens. Their album, The E.N.D is out June 8th.
It's Been a while....

Alesha Dixon 'Let's Get Excited' Video

UK vixen Alesha Dixon premiered the video for 'Let's Get Excited' today, the third single from her smash album 'The Alesha Show'. While it's predecessors 'The Boy Does Nothing' and 'Breathe Slow' were great cuts, there's little that 'excites' me about both this song and video. Put simply, neither then song or it's accompanying clip, I feel, are strong enough to keep up the momentum Alesha has going at the minute. Of course, things could go otherwise...

New Chris Brown

Here is a new leak from Chris Brown tiled Nuthin', the track is produced by the underdogs who produced Britney's Womanizer and Mannequin. The song is a slow one, and not particularly good, but I thought I would post it for the fans he still has, yes both of you.

Download / Nuthin'

Gimme More Tour Remix

Here is the remix of Gimme More that is being used on tour. Since a lot of people who have seen the tour either in person or online have been wanting/searching for this version, I decided to upload for everyone. Ooh and by the way, one of the dancers has let slip that a new song has just been added to the tour. Kill The Lights anyone?
