For those who care…. it’s Mercury Prize time again folks!
Singer Corrine Bailey Rae and Dizzie Rascal have both received Mercury Prize nominations, alongside “Modfather’ Paul Weller (he seems so up himself) and Biffy Cyflo (who?).
Last year Speech Debelle took home the Mercury Prize and then promptly disappeared after THIS embarrassing incident.
*Note: A Mercury win is supposed to boost sales and the artist’s profile. But that didn’t happen in Speech’s case. *
Then she later quit her label blaming them for her poor album sales. According to Digital Spy, to date her winning album has sold just under 13,000 copies.
I personally don’t think the label was to blame……
But anyway, I was informed today that Speech is currently working on a new album.
