New Omarion (Ft. Lil' Wayne)

This song is getting rave reviews around the forums and music blogs. The beat is produced by Timbaland. With Chris Brown maybe out the picture, there could be room for Omarion to take over.

Here is the HQ version of Enrique Iglesias' latest single Takin' Back My Love, feturing Sarah Connor! Personally I think the Ciara version blows this one out of the water.

Lily Allen's 2nd Single Is..

Not Fair [Listen Here]

Lily Allen confirmed this on her twitter feed. She shot the video on February 20th in LA and the video is set to have country feel to it, to match the vibe of the record.

Kelly Clarkson #1 On UK Midweeks

My Life Would Suck Without You is already #1 on the UK Midweek chart ahead of Taylor Swift's Love Story which is #2, if this stays the same way until Sunday which is very likely then Kelly will get her first #1 hit there. Lily has fallen to #6 on iTunes meaning she could struggle to stay in the top five by Sunday.

Can't believe how different this era is to when she released My December. Just goes to show that artistic license doesn't necessarily mean you will do well on the carts. Incidently, I read recently that Kelly was offered $10,000,000 to swap up five tracks from My December for more radio friendly ones, and turned it down! No one's Can't deny that she believed in the project, but I much prefer the material from All I Ever Wanted. So do the fans it seems!

New T-Pain (Ft. Kanye West)

Here is a new tagged song from T-Pain called Flight School and it features Kanye West. It'snot a bad cut, very generic T-Pain stuff though.Worth a listen if you are a fan.

The Pussycat Dolls 'Jai Ho' iTunes Rip

The HQ of Jai Ho has finally leaked onto the internet. It looks like they are filming a video for it judging by this picture, I think this song could go huge after the huge Oscar success of Slumdog Millionaire. I am a huge fan of this track, I think it really suits Nicole's voice. A bit odd how it says The Pussycat Dolls (Feat. Nicole Scherzinger) though?

"At the request of the authorities, Rihanna is not commenting about the incident involving Chris Brown," she said via a spokesman. "She wants to assure her fans that she remains strong."

As I reported earlier, the track is called Boom Boom Pow and it looks like Wil.I.Am is the one who has put it up on the internet. HQ stream below, I will put up download as soon as it becomes available. All I can say is it sounds fierce, it's a real step forward from their last album.

New Ciara Single

Ciara's next single, Love and Sex and Magic has leaked onto the internet in the last 12 hours. Unfortunately for her the song is quite weak. I think he label have completely misjudged this album, she needs a 1,2 Step-esque single to really ensure massive first week sales. This sounds very average, with typical timberland beats and Justin's vocals don't really add much.

According to reports Rihanna is getting the love while Chris Brown is feeling the wrath of the angry fans.E! has revealed that sales of Rihanna’s 2007 album, Good Girl Gone Bad, surged 33%, selling an additional 25,000 copies in the past week alone. Meanwhile, sales from Chris Brown’s 2007 album, Exclusive, continued on its downward spiral. The record has risen to 31 in the US Billboard Album chart, while Chris Brown's 2007 album Exclusive failed to register in the Top 200.

Meanwhile, the singer's collaboration with T.I. 'Live Your Life' is at number 16 in the Billboard Hot 100, with solo single 'Disturbia' at 33.

There is more bad news for Chris, radio stations in the US, Australia, and Barbados have already banned all of his songs. Poor Brown has hired a crisis management team to help him deal with the aftermath of the attack.

BEP's Album Release Date and First Single

The Black Eyed Peas will release their first studio album in four years, "The E.N.D.," on June 9 via Interscope. As previously reported, the group originally hoped to release the set, which stands for "The Energy Never Dies," in March.

The album's first single, "Boom Boom Pow," will soon be serviced to radio and clubs. The group is planning an international tour in support of the release. Black Eyed Peas principal previously told Billboard he hopes the album will continue to evolve even after it is released.

"When [the album] comes out, there'll be 12 songs on it, but the next day there could be 100 songs, 50 sketches, 1,000 blogs all (online) around 'The End,' so the energy really, truly never dies,” he said.He described the music as "a lot of dance stuff, real melodic, electronic, soulful. We call it, like, electric static funk, something like that."

The Fray Cover Kanye's 'Heartless'

Not the type of song you would expect The Fray to cover, but one that works nonetheless. His grainy voice adds a great twist to it.

T.I. 'Dead And Gone' Video

The video for T.I.'s latest single, the Justin Timberlake assisted 'Dead and Gone', premiered within the last hour. While the clip does a good job of driving home the song's message, it was one boring video if there ever was one. Decent song, yet a sleep-inducing video. That said, I guess it serves its purpose.

New Girls Aloud Album In 2010

There have been various stories in the newspapers this week - and it's true that the girls will be doing various bits outside of Girls Aloud this year.

Alexandra Burke Signs £3m Deal

Alexandra Burke has reportedly signed a US record deal with Epic worth £3 million.The X Factor winner was picked up by the label for a five-album contract as a result of the success of her 'Hallelujah' single, The Sun reports.

An industry insider said: "Epic think Alexandra can follow in Leona's footsteps."The US market loves women with big voices - and Alex certainly has that. If she comes close to Leona's success it will be a job well done."

Neyo 'Bossy' Demo

Ne-Yo has a lot to celebrate lately after winning 2 Grammys last week. Not only that his third album "Year of Gentlemen" has already sold over 800,000 copies and has spawned three hit singles!

The song managed to peak to #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play, but never went anywhere from there. If you don't have lindsay's version, get it now.

New Chris Brown

Many people are becoming very hostile to Chris Brown on the forums, and whilst I can see why you may be in disgust, it doesn't mean his music is any less amazing. Therefore I am not going to stop posting his music as a result of his recent arrest. Here is a new song to have leaked in HQ called Takes Time To Love.

Apparantly, the latest is that Rihanna has cancelled her 21st birthday party as a result of the goings on.

Lady Gaga (DJ Vice Megamixes) Promo CD

This is a medley of tracks from The Fame. Gaga has added some new spoken word moments and intros. This promo CD will be given out at release parties.

Chartstuff Update

I apologize for the lack of updates over the past few days. There are two reasons, firstly the music scene is dead at the moment; not much is leaking, and I thought I would spare you countless remixes or up to the minute updates on the Rihanna/Chris Brown fiasco. Secondly, I have been on vacation, but I'm back now so expect more posts in the coming week and beyond :D Thanks for coming!

In case you didn't know, If You Seek Amy is Britney's latest single from Circus. Filming for the video has almost finished and I'm predicting a release date of late March. In the meantime, here is a great remix of the track. The mixed beat fits perfectly with the song.
